Summary

From best-selling author Leddy Harper comes a sizzling romance about an aspiring young chef who may discover that the perfect recipe for love involves all accidental ingredients....

Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé’s restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she’s moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she’s in a relationship with her best friend’s superhot cousin. There’s just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they’re already “dating.”

Jason’s a recovering ladies’ man who shouldn’t be on the menu, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to Tatum’s quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can’t hurt. But as Tatum’s forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what’s real and what’s fake - including her feelings for Jason.

With too many tales spun, Tatum can only watch in horror as her collection of yarns begins to unravel, leaving everyone she cares about feeling betrayed. After so many lies, will it be too late to set the record straight? And more importantly, will she be able to convince Jason there’s truth in their love?

Annoying

The female voice for this audiobook was to whiny and breathy. She made the heroine seem stupid and whiny. This was free through kindle unlimited, so I took a chance. I’d be mad if I paid for this. I found myself yelling at the audio because the voice was so annoying. She also sounded a lot older than the character’s age.

4.5 LITTLE WHITE LIE

I love Leddy Harper's writing. She engages her readers in a way that makes time seem like a non-issue. You get entranced in the story that the world around you is put on pause. I enjoyed that the heroine was a bit clumsy and quirky. She wasn't your typical heroine and that made me enjoy it so much more. The narration made the H/h come to life and Kendall Taylor and Brian Pallino did a fantastic job. I would definitely recommend this to romance lovers that enjoys a nice HEA.

Loved this

I absolutely loved this story. My face hurts from laughing. Tatum's character is so awkward and quirky and Jason is just the right person for her. I loved the sense of humor in this story. Jason's character could find the humor in life situations that a lot of people don't possess, plus he sounds totally sexy. Thumbs up to the author and the narrator's. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

so freaking funny

(Jason & Tatum): well this book was a wild ride of lies and laughter. Tatum is working to be sous chef in her fiance's restaurant. Her life is perfect, until he breaks up with her, as her family is arriving at the restaurant for her birthday. Months later her ex- has hired his new girlfriend as the party chef. To prove she's moved on, she cooks up a doozy of a lie that she's got a new boyfriend. Problem is, she used a real person as her proof. Another problem, he's her best friend's cousin. Jason is moving back to town because his step father recently passed and he wants to be home for his mom. For some reason his cousin has made strict rules that her best friend is off limits. But he's extremely attracted to her and they both can't stay away from each other. The story is hilarious, fun and sexy and then it all falls like a stack of dominoes. I've never read this author but I'm definitely going to read from her again. Such a good book.

Laughed Out Loud

The plot and dialogue was hilarious and had me laughing my biggest issue was the female voice. I felt like she was a bit monotone and didn't really covey much emotions. aside from that I laughed so hard at everything that happened to her. *SPOILER* The Bday song, airport situation etc. talk about lies spiraling out of control. LMAO!

Not my favorite…

I love a good romcom, and the premise of the story sounded like it would be fun! But the truth is when I started reading this story I just kept waiting for something to happen that would make me like the protagonist, and it never did. I can set aside the fact that it’s incredibly clichéd, and that the descriptions of things are always wildly over exaggerated, but it’s hard to set aside the fact that the main character is just so unlikable. She lies more than she tells the truth, and in completely idiotic ways too. In the end, I did power through and finish the story. The story itself isn’t the worst one in the world I can kind of get on board with it, it’s just the main character and the descriptions of things that are so hard to get past. Wish I could return this one.

Just read the story yourself!

Story was good, female voice was a tad annoying. At times her voice was really whiny and childish yet other times her voice sounded too old for the character.
