Genre: Erotic Romantic Suspense
Author: Elizabeth Finn
Fiona was desperate to find a life in Jackson, Wyoming, but when a job interview that was supposed to be a sure thing turns ugly, she doubts there’s much hope of it. Eli sees through her lies, and regardless of the favor his father has asked of him, he’s just too stubborn to hire a woman who refuses to even give him her real name.
But there is a reason for everything, and he finds out soon enough her deceptions have a purpose too.
Secrets and lies are nothing to build a relationship on, but a relationship isn’t something either of them seem able to avoid. They’re simply magnets pulled together in a situation that should be driving them apart, but Eli has his own ghosts to contend with, and his past leaves him incapable of trusting a woman he can never fully know.
How can they move beyond her lies when the truth is what Eli really needs, and when her past threatens to destroy her, can he rise above his own needs to protect her—his innocent liar?
This was my first experience with this author. I very much doubt that it will be the last.
The Innocent Liar was full of secrets, lies, agendas, love, compassion, trust, and more.
I really can't say too much without giving spoilers so let's just say that the heroine is in desperate need of a favor. She is destitute and living on the street. She is in that position because of some very, very bad people. She is told to go to Jackson and that there is a job waiting for her with Eli.
Eli has plans of his own though. He told his father that he would do him a favor and meet with this girl. He knows as soon as he meets her that there is more than the obvious going on. He knows that she is lying and is very overbearing and even rude during the interview.
She is desperate and goes back again. This time, he hires her.
The two of them do a relationship tango. They both try to fight their attraction but that doesn't last too long. ;-)
There are too many secrets and lies and they have to decide whether to trust each other and save the relationship that they seem destined for or to walk away.
There was a lot of suspense and danger to this one in addition to their romance.
I liked it and wouldn't mind reading more about these characters in the future. ;-) I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
