    Licensed to Lie review []  2020-1-22 1:51

    Putting this book down was nearly impossible, so I finished it within a 24 hour time period. Not only is it very well written, even for those with limited law knowledge, frankly, this book of truth will infuriate you. It will also confirm your suspicions of inequality and injustice under the law. If you ever trusted our government (which I never have), no longer will you have faith in the FBI, DOJ or any of the other acronym agencies. If you yell at your TV every time the MSM slants stories to fit their political narratives, you will search yourself yelling at this book in anger and frustration. I don't know how Ms. Powell got through all she endured, not to mention the victims and their families in the cited cases.I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for answers as to why, after so a lot of endless investigations and congress hearings in the latest few years, no one has been indicted or sent to prison and probably will not serve any time or be held accountable for their criminality. The lunatics have definitely taken over the asylum in our (in) justice system and we should all be terrified. - Donna Watson

    The book is not the turgid legal tome that some have characterized it as. It is simple to follow and written in a clear and concise manner that demonstrates the a lot of abuses by the DOJ to obtain the results they wanted. While I haven't finished the book I was surprised to see the suppression of evidence that is needed to be given to the accused, the distortion of information, and sandbagging to intimidate corporations into submitting to the DOJ's agenda. This extended to senators and other government officials. What is most disturbing that even as abuses were revealed no action was taken versus the a culture of the most abusive and disgusting sort grew and was rewarded by those who required people without scruples, honor or any vestige of integrity. Having served for over 27 years with the USG I can state that this culture exists in the intelligence communities and State as well. I have no doubt that it extends to all government agencies to one degree or another.If you do not read this book you will remain blind and ignorant to the depth and scope of such corruption and its tentacles throughout the is is a must read.

    “Licensed to Lie” is a page-turner of the very first chop. It is even more interesting if the reader is a lawyer, and absolutely enthralling for those of us who practice criminal law in the federal courts. Ms. Powell’s style is vivid and gripping. As one who has parried with hostile, biased judges and mystifying appeals panels, I can relate to every experience she recounts. The prosecution versus Senator Ted Stevens was the most sordid chapter in the corrupt “Main Justice” history. Judge Emmet Sullivan may have some warts on him, but he was a titan of righteousness in that case. Ms. Powell gives us an perfect recounting of that travesty. Every American should read it. In my view the government misconduct in the Skilling case and the Nigerian Barge case does not rise to that level of outrageousness. The Stevens prosecution was contrived by DOJ crooks (or higher) to knock the senator out of his seat, and to tilt the course of a national election. The DOJ conspired to convict an innocent man and alter the political landscape. We are seeing this today in all things Trump. This is as poor as it lling, by contrast, was a greedy crook. Everyone around him was a crook as well. Their covetousness cost a lot of thousands of people their jobs, their livelihoods, and their financial futures. I assume that Weissman et al. were dishonest and corrupt in those prosecutions; that is despicable, but the result is different, and the hurt infinitely less. Excesses aside, they were not trying to frame innocent people. (I need to further research the Jim Brown case.) The DOJ lawyers may have had a Amazing Faith but wrong belief that Mr. Brown was guilty of something. I personally would not give them the benefit of any doubt, but it may be that I am wrong. I note that Ms. Powell, a superb appellate lawyer, was not able to convince any court of Mr. Brown’s innocence on his perjury and obstruction convictions.A few things in “Licensed to Lie” jump out at a veteran trial Judge Ewing Werlien corrupt, or lazy, or both? Author Powell impugns the judge’s integrity, to place it mildly; he is still on the bench in Texas (July 2019), and Ms. Powell is not likey to go back there any time soon. Judge Werlien appears in the book to be totally biased versus Ms. Powell’s client. That is a poor thing, to be sure, but it is likely that the judge was convinced by the trial of Mr. Brown’s guilt. There is no Presumption of Innocence following a jury verdict, and judges are less likely to conceal any bias post-trial in ruling on motions. Fresh trials (Rule 33) are rarely granted. Similarly, the Fifth Circuit panel applied the same standard to Ms. Powell’s Brady argument; Brown’s conviction was fair despite any Brady violations. I am an unabashed admirer of Ms. Powell, and I have never tried a case in the Fifth Circuit, but I do not believe that all of the judges down there are waterboys for Weissman and Ruemmler.I was amazed at the section wherein Ms. Powell recounts the “Speedy Trial Act” issue. She asserts that dismissal of the Brown prosecution was virtually automatic if the Speedy Trial Act (STA) “clock” was exceeded. At that point I stopped reading to confirm that Ms. Powell had ever actually been a working Assistant U.S. Attorney (and not just an appeals lawyer). No case is ever dismissed because of STA violations; the law is a charade. The purpose of the Act is to deprive defendants of the constitutional right to a speedy trial, by allowing the prosecutors to “legally” delay the case indefinitely by filing motions which “stop” the Speedy Trial “clock.” Ms. Powell must know e other section which, frankly, does not have the ring of truth is her description of Mr. Brown’s incarceration at Fort Dix. All we read about Fort Dix is what Mr. Brown told Ms. Powell. Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) Fort Dix is a LOW security facility. There are no cells, no bars, and very moderate security (I’ve been there). The inmates live in “pods” like military team bays. Inmates appear to walk around the grounds freely during the day. Dix is notorious only for how slack it is; cell phones and the like, although prohibited, are widely available to the inmates. At one point Ft. Dix was the biggest institution in the Bureau of Prisons, with over 4,000 inmates. FCI Fort Dix is “low” security because of the nature of the inmates; mostly older guys, mostly “nonviolent” offenders like Brown with relatively short sentences and no prior offenses, and no suming it is true, I was left pondering why a guy like Jim Brown would be singled out for harassment by the staff in a relatively soft institution. Fort Dix is maybe 50 miles from where I live; I have had clients sent there. I have never heard anything poor about the prison, relative to other federal jails. Indeed, because of its reputation, my clients sometimes request placement at Dix at their sentencing hearing, although drug-dealers and gangbangers are unlikely to obtain sent there. I was left to wonder if maybe Ms. Powell herself stirred up some resentment or irritation among the staff, based on her rather forceful and dynamic (combative?) personality, which comes through continuously in the all a amazing book, best I have read this season (I obtain through 2-3 books a month).Rather famously Ms. Powell is representing General Flynn. A mysterious case if ever there was one. I have hopes that that book will be even better.

    Licensed to Lie review []  2020-1-22 1:51

    “What do you call a vehicle full of federal prosecutors at the bottom of Galveston Bay? A amazing start…”After reading Ms. Powell’s book it’s simple to understand why lawyer jokes such as this exist, and are popular. Her book is a captivating insider's acc specifically about the abuses of the government's power in post-Enron collapse legal battles, but more generally about how the American prosecutorial system works - often for unique interests and government hegemony and not in the interests of individual citizen's rights or the overall national interests. Sidney Powell is a former federal prosecutor with decades of experience including being lead counsel in over 500 criminal appeals, and she writes in an extremely accessible way, creating a heartfelt thrilling page turner actually."... It was a dark, dark day. I was losing respect for a court I had loved and admired even before I began practicing law. How and why had the amazing Fifth Circuit become so grudging in protecting individual freedom versus blatant abuse and overreaching by the government?" (p. 149)"Spencer had created it clear that he was going to place us all through another trial on this indictment for conspiracy and wire fraud. This case never created sense, but so far the government had spent tens of millions of dollars, and four men had spent up to a year in prison for conduct that wasn't criminal. The department and Spencer were continuing to spend cash like water. Someone high up in the Department of Justice was pushing things hard, and it was completely irrational. why would they continue to spend cash and pursue this case....unless....they were protecting someone - but whom? And from what? The task force had disbanded, but Spencer had just admitted in begin court that he had consulted them - and apparently more than once. They had convinced him that hey had "acted in amazing faith as he said, and they had disclosed everything. I was certain they had not. They were fighting method too long and too hard. They were covering up something." (p. 179-180)Ms Powell outlines in detail the prosecution and conviction of key players (more like key scape goats) in post-Enron convictions at Arthur Anderson and Merrill Lynch (and later of Sen Ted Steven's bogus prosecution) and their subsequent exoneration on appeal - a lengthy, costly, devastating process for the defendants, that yet one that had no negative consequences for the government prosecutors. Instead of being chastised or remorseful for these abuses of power the government has only been emboldened, as the recent (post 2016 election) abuses of power at the DOJ have created clear! Ms Powell's telling is anything if not thorough. She must repeat at least four dozen times her main case's info and how the DOJ prosecutors and federal judges circumvented the law. But it doesn't seem tedious and repetitious as much as convey the extreme frustration she and her legal squad and client must have felt."Of course, Stevens's defense squad and every experienced criminal defense attorney also knew that the Justice Department would never do the same kind of investigation or reach the same conclusion as would a truly independent prosecutor. The department was method too political, incestuous, self serving, and self-institutionalized to do so. Some lawyers opined that it really required to be cleaned out from top to bottom with bleach and fire hoses. Too a lot of people had been there too long. A select few merely moved in and out of the upper echelon of the department depending on the political party in power. "Main Justice," as insiders called it, had descended to inbreed arrogance and political abuse of power, and the narcissists who wielded it produced disregard for the rule of law." (p. 210-211)Needless to say, the DOJ is still awaiting that cleaning out."The Department of "Justice" wants the sole discretion to withhold whatever evidence it wants to withhold. It wants to be the sole arbiter of what is material to the defense. It wants an unlimited and unchecked License to Lie." (p. 400)I've been an avid reader of anti-government - pro libertarian - books for the past 25 years, and while not even intending to be (specifically libertarian) this is actually one of the best and most convincing! Highly recommended.

    Sydney Powell has written an awesome book here. She is brilliant, has a amazing sense of humor and is in the e work she did on the case she describes is a monumental accomplishment and with her commitment and brilliance she saved lives. She took it all the method to the Supreme Court to do it. Just breathtaking that such is allowed to go on in this country and it is nightmarish to consider that if you can't afford amazing legal representation you are cooked...This book is so pertinent for today as well. One of the players in this book, to place its simply a very poor guy, is operating as we live and breath. If the American public realized.....I believe its would rock sane people to the is is a 10 in my opinion. This book should be read by metimes things are not at all what they seem. The media paints a very deliberate picture and sometimes it rarely resembles the truth.Highest recommendation.

    After you read this book, you will be asking yourself: Why is Wiesmann not in jail already. Why are more former DOJ attorneys not in jail with him? This chronicle of DOJ injustices is absolutely appalling! The activities these people were perpetrating on American citizens is unbelievable! Once you read this, you will know why the Mueller probe can not have had any semblance of honesty, with Wiesmann being the guy in charge. This book has a wealth of info about the injustices perpetrated by government lawyers. The only issue I had with the book was that it got harder to read towards the end, where it bogged down in too a lot of details. Although it was captivating, towards the end I had to plod through it to [email protected]#$%!. But all-in-all worth reading just for the wonderful info it provides about the workings of the DOJ.

    The person first using the witticism "truth is stranger than fiction" clearly had this book in mind! Based on legal cases versus Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, Enron, Arthur Anderson and Merrill Lynch this book reads like a novel. A layperson interested in knowing about the legal machinations in these cases will understand what happened based on Ms. Powell's account.What is scary is that with the exception of Mr. Marsh who committed suicide, those mentioned in the book are in some method or the other still prosecuting, practicing law and/or still with the government, etc. Weissman was pulled in to work on Mueller's unique counsel team. Whether one supports our current president or not, what such people are doing to our justice system should concern all of us. In fact, even though after two years and millions of dollars later a report is now due, was the counsel really necessary?Will the truth and the whole truth about who did what regardless of political party be revealed? Don't count on it! Or count on the opposition supporting Mueller even though they fully supported him until it became clear his report won't give them what they wanted. Or count on fixing a legal system often managed by politics rather than actual law. Judge shopping by the opposition is all too common these days. When did that become acceptable?What one can count on is the Peter Principle applying to all too a lot of in the justice system: when being ever more promoted up the line, a person will reach his/her level of incompetence. Add to that politics and it is something all should be concerned about because it may be your political guy/gal or family member next time!Another tragedy is that dishonest prosecutors, especially those with the government, and/or lazy judges (one recently stayed an executive order partially or almost solely based on tweets--when did tweets become law!), cause people who truly love and honor the law like Ms. Powell to become burned out to the point that s/he may leave law practice. While burn-out in Ms. Powell's case is understandable, her withdrawing from law practice would indeed be sad for prospective future clients who would appreciate her honesty and diligence. And it would be a tragedy if she never writes another book!BTW, hold in mind these cases were overturned and that a lot of of the charges were bogus from the get-go! Those who deliberately withheld or omitted material pertinent to the defense should themselves be jailed. Seriously. How can they obtain away with such shenanigans? I could ask why isn't it totally, absolutely versus the law while a law remedying much of this dishonesty languishes in Congress after being introduced more than two years ago. DOJ does not help this law. Since DOJ is part of the executive and Congress is legislative, indeed this law could be passed without DOJ approval. We the people need to expect better from our representatives. They may seem like you or me when holding a city hall back home but we need to pay more attention to how they vote once in D.C. And, while we're art it, ask who is paying for their campaigns!Writing this book took courage. Ms. Powell is to be commended for standing up for the truth. So should those who helped her in this war over the long years before resolution. This book is a 10-star read and is highly recommended.

    Licensed to Lie, a fascinating record of what should be a nobel profession. Sad that Sidney Powell, in her end comment, has become disillusioned. As a topic of a five year baseless “malpractice” effort, finally terminated by a twenty min unanimous jury verdict of Not Guilty, but followed by two futile appeals, I’ve experienced first hand how slowly the Law operate as well as the single minded drive by the prosecution to “win”. The book is a non-stop read. One of the prominent people discussed, Judge Emmitt Sullivan, is back in the news in the Michael Flynn issue.

    I had only heard bits and pieces about the dirty dealings of some of the DOJ attorneys in passing. It was only after another one of Tag Levins stellar interviews on his weekly present did I purchase this book. Parts of it become repetitious but only because the author want's to hammer home the findings.A note to those who read books on the law for courtroom drama. There is small of it here but what there was I enjoyed the most. I think most readers will take away a sense of despair and fear knowing the most strong branch of the government is infested with career chop throats who's ambition to victory at any cost can and does destroy innocent citizens.

    I have been involved in the legal system for about 40 years, in one capacity or another, having been admitted to the Bar in 1978.Until I read this book, I believed that corruption of this sort was unusual, and not the norm, for the federal system, to which I have had very small private exposure over the years, my practice being limited to state , and as a direct effect of reading this book, I cannot look at federal system with the same eyes. The corruption and incompetence exhibited in this book should terrify anyone who cares about the integrity of our system of secutors knowingly withholding exculpatory evidence from the defense, and prosecuting people whom they either knew were innocent or ought to have realized it if they weren't obsessed with obtaining a conviction, are a risky cancer on the justice is case, as illustrated by this book, is the federal court equivalent of what happened in the fraudulent Duke Lacrosse Case. At least in that case, the corrupt prosecutors were punished, and their victims somewhat the corrupt cases outlined in this book, the corrupt prosecutors were rewarded and me of them went on to work for the "special prosecutor" ease read this book.

    While a lot of of the conspiracies written about in the book are more or less public knowledge, some aren't. Which is why I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting to understand that our government lies to us, and often.I have read a number of poor reviews of this book, both here and on other websites. And I think that is in huge part due to how unwilling some are to accept the fact that their government actually lies to them. If even one of the conspiracies mentioned in this book is true, then why can't others be?This is a book for people who are free thinkers, certainly, but I would urge anybody to read it. The chapter on 9/11 is certainly eye ntura and Russell contain quite a number of footnotes documenting where they got their evidence, l in all it makes for a amazing read. I skipped around the chapters in my first read through, and you will likely do the same.

    This guy is one of the only honest politicians America has ever produced. Who could have believed that but it's true. This guy is a patriot and a rare American and a unbelievable human and a true man. That's why he's so hated by the opposition on both sides of the fence. Read and learn. Five stars.

    Sorry, but this is not a amazing book. Mr. Ventura is very charismatic (wrestling days?). How can you write a book on 17 various conspiracies, giving each one an average of 15 pages!!!If you are interested in 9/11, President Kennedy's assassination, etc. search a amazing book on that specific ere is one conspiracy that was missed. Write a book, over hype on the media and earn a nice profit from sales.

    FACT: The government has lied to us, continues to lie to us and will lie to us in the future.DISCLAIMER: I love Jesse Ventura. I became a fan of his when he won the governorship in Minnesota after a career in the Navy as a SEAL, a career as professional wrestler and a career in Hollywood (Predator). Ventura writes in a breezy, conversational everyman style as though he is talking to you directly. This is a amazing primer for your journey to the truth. If you've taken the red pill, you'll wish this book as justification for going down the rabbit hole. Ventura has gathered facts, interviewed witnesses and read transcripts of court proceedings in putting together undeniable and inconvenient truths about what has really transpired in America. This should be needed reading in every classroom in the land.

    I purchased this due to a positive review by someone who personally stated this was a amazing book. Well, when he spoke of himself being mesmerized by a specific speaker and quoted the comment he made, I KNEW this book was all wrong for me. Too much leftist propaganda in these, not true investigative work. If I wanted Jerry Springer in a book, well, Jerry would have been much better. Save your money. This book was SO bad, that I could not bear to even bonus it to Salvation Army. It went into the trash the same day it arrived.

    I like the method this guy writes. Jesse Ventura lays the evidence out and has the critical thinking skills to come up with logical answers. I search him right on the cash every time. Amazing research and perfect analysis leads to likely scenarios by Jesse. He writes like he is talking to you and you can hear his voice saying the words. He does not use fancy language or test to impress anyone with a lot of hyperbole -- straight and to the point. I like the method he titles his conclusions, "My Take," and follows with direct sse goes through each so-called "conspiracy" and illuminates the true facts. In every case there is sound evidence to present that there are strong forces working versus the American people.

    I admit it; I am a card-carrying conspiracist. I have encountered in different books over at least the latest two decades virtually all of the material that Ventura examines in this book and all that he has written makes excellent sense to me. I admit again though, not hearing about the Manchurian Candidate theory about the assassination of Robert Kennedy and that other hugely weird happening at Jonestown. The idea that joins all of these happenings is the easy idea that they seem so reasonable to me; that must be why I believe in conspiracies to start with because all of these assassinations fall into the basket of ideas that say, "These so called conspiracies are simply what would happen given the amount of cash floating around and given rich, strong people who accept the premise that the end justifies the means". Once you have a believable reason for somebody doing something then it easily follows that people will act on their belief. I think Ventura does just that admirably in his dissection of the different acts in this book. Chapter 13, The Wall Road Conspiracy, is (for a non-intellectual like myself) numbingly complicated but again perfectly sensible given the extreme amounts of cash involved and the strength of the American Dream whereby anybody can be more well-off than they've ever dreamed (another conspiracy-convince the population that they can strive to have it all).Ventura explains, even complex economic problems like the Meltdown, extremely well by giving the reader much info surrounding the particular event, enough info to, at least to me, see the logic of his thesis. I repeat, I was struck by his presentation because he explained events,that lesser thinkers deride as silliness, in terms that seem so logical. Hugely evil happenings that, when taken in the context of the perpetrators, seem perfectly logical. They are certainly not numbingly far-fetched like a lot of of the naysayers would have us a lot of pieces of the American historical puzzle fit into put perfectly after reading American Conspiracies; it is a book that draws back the establishment's curtain regarding how the American globe is run in today's century and by comparison, the rest of the contemporary world.

    I have not read every word of this fresh Ventura venture but once again I have been enlightened, outraged, maybe even embarrassed here and there by all the detail implying that I too "drank the kool-aid", as I sat half-awake on my couch, (albeit after a long, miserable day at work, when work was to be found), and allow thye Fair and Balanced station hypnotize me into recommendation therefore is based upon my skimming of those chapters I search the most intersting at this time: THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION: THE BIGGEST COVER-UP IN MY LIFETIME; THE OCTOBER SURPRISE; WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON SEPTEMBER 11?Every Chapter starts out with a highlighted text box with The Incident, The Official Word, My Take and ends with What Should We Do Now?The idea of a lookalike Lee Harvey Oswald is too far-fetched for me, however, although I do believe he was "fringe", off the books, rogue CIA, in a "double agent"mode. The entire October Surprise entry is 100% ok with me. I do not dig the implication that the White House had a hand, however, tiny, in the 09-1-1 scenario.If anything, I beleive Bush II, et. al., just allow the chips fall where they may, as I surmise happened on 11-22-63. Excellent deniability and..."all for the best".You can see that Jesse's got my brain percolating again! (retirement helps!). Go, go, go Jesse! 2016: Clinton and Ventura!!!

    I am large history buff and I enjoyed reading this book and the various viewpoints and takes on historical happenings that Jesse brings up in the book. Nothing extremely far fetched and should be enjoyable to anyone who enjoys history and exploring happenings from various points of view. I particularly liked the chapters on Malcom X and Jim Jones.

    As a federal criminal defense attorney for nearly 20 years, this book resounded LOUDLY with me. The acts of the U.S. Attorney that she describes are endemic. I have been lied to, threatened with bar complaints and had complaints created to judges behind my back, all for trying to provide a zealous defense to my client. Everything Sidney Powell says here is t only is it true, but it's a page turner, including back stories of people whose lives were ruined by aggressive prosecutors. If you are interested in justice and the corruption of the process designed to provide it, READ THIS BOOK.

    When I was a teenager I read the Exorcist, and until today, no book I have read since has come close to being as scary. Sidney Powell’s “Licensed to Lie” comes very close. Of course, the Exorcist is fiction and even though it’s scary, everyone knows that the danger is all in their minds. “Licensed to Lie” unfortunately is not fiction. The scary thought is that this book shows true examples of true people that are trusted with immense power to uphold the law; and that they have used that power to take away the freedom and fortune of defendants regardless of whether they have actually committed a crime or not. This book takes you through the process of prosecutors that have used unethical and illegal means to convict with the aid of sympathetic judges at each level of the trial and appeal process. Ms. Powell has demonstrated the courage to name names; and some of these names are still in high locations within the government today. If this book doesn't scare the hell out of you, you’re not paying attention.

    Compelling, confirmed what I have suspected all along. It's a shame more government officials elected appointed alike won't stand up to this.

    A Lie for a Lie (All In Book 1) review []  2020-1-17 23:18

    I’m relatively fresh to Helena Hunting’s writing, this book being the third one of hers that I’ve read, and for that, believe me, I’m kicking myself. I mean, seriously, what was I thinking waiting this long to read her work? It’s ridiculous, and I’m embarrassed and ashamed of myself. But on the upside, I have a whole lot of awesomeness to look forward to in that back catalog of hers, so at least there’s that.A Lie for a Lie kicks off with one heck of a meet-cute that turns into a bit of a mess (literally) before it circles back to cute. Rook, or RJ as he introduces himself to Lainey, solidly endeared himself to me during that whole episode. He was so gentle and kind, and I loved that he recognized right away that this woman was various and special, and from that first moment, he handled her with care, well except for that one huge honking lie of omission… Lainey was so sweet and a touch naïve at first, but she was also brave, stepping method out of her comfort location to go on this large adventure eir magical few weeks together is abruptly chop short, and in a truly unfortunate set of circumstances, they part ways, planning to catch up with each other later. In a heartbreaking turn of events, though, that contact doesn’t go according to plan, and they lose touch. Quick forward a year, and fate steps in to reunite them in another meet-cute scenario that isn’t nearly as cute as their first meeting. RJ’s lie explodes in that moment as he sees Lainey for the first time in a year. It turns out, though, that Lainey’s got one of her own. Summoning up all the persistence, patience and purpose he can possibly muster, RJ pursues Lainey. He desperately wants a possibility to prove he’s the true deal to Lainey, and she has decide if she’s willing to place her heart on the line oted in one of my favorite tropes, A Lie for a Lie was an utterly romantic, sweet and sexy second-chance romance. Positively brimming with emotion, Hunting delivered a story that created me laugh, swoon, sigh and sob. I loved every single step of RJ and Lainey’s journey back to each other. Five smooches from me for A Lie for a Lie by Helena Hunting!

    A Lie for a Lie (All In Book 1) review []  2020-1-17 23:18

    If you’re a fan of Helena Hunting’s Pucked series, you no doubt reacted as I did when you found out that she was creating a spin-off series: lots of fist-pumps of glee and e amazing news is that Helena Hunting more than exceeds your ok, the hockey all-star and captain, strives to obtain away to Alaska to do some fishing and relax away from the demands of fame and sport. On the flight over, Lainey literally falls in his lap. It turns out his house and her rental are close by, and … one thing might just lead to another.I enjoyed getting to know these two, and I enjoyed the method Helena Hunting forces them apart. It feels true and more than a small emotionally affecting. So when they reunite, you experience the same myriad of responses as Rook and Lainey. You also begin cheering on the two of them, hoping they search a method to obtain past his lie and nting crafts Rook and Lainey as people who have much love to give each other, although they aren’t sure how. For him, it’s a matter of trying to control the chaos around him. His fame causes him to be recognized, which in turn encroaches on his privacy. Given the possibility to be his real self, he leaps for it, grasping onto it with need. Lainey, however, balks at control. The youngest of eight children, she’s been smothered and babied, and now she wants to create her own e lies the two tell each other vary in degree. Rook’s perhaps is more understandable on the surface, but you feel Lainey’s deeper. By the time she reveals the truth, you are on her side, empathizing with her over the decisions she ok and Lainey’s romance is glorious. It’s hot and sweet and arousing and hilarious. They create you laugh and squeeze your thighs with equal measure. Rook is delicious, dear readers. He is everything you hope for in a Hot Hero. One of the things I appreciated the most about him is that he isn’t some distant alpha, but rather a guy with a large heart. You wish him to work things out with Lainey because you know he’s me of your beloved characters from the Pucked series create appearances, and you will have fun checking in with them. You’ll also have fun getting to know Rook and Lainey, who kick off this fresh series in the best way.

    A Lie for a Lie (All In Book 1) review []  2020-1-17 23:18

    This novel is 100% just a huge catch up of the Pucked favorites. We got to check in on everybody, and see how they were doing. Also, this was a pilot for Hunting to begin her fresh Seattle hockey series.Feel free to skip, but I enjoyed seeing the children at the birthday party that was honestly 20% of the novel.A Lie for a Lie features Rook (who annoyingly goes by RJ the /entire/ book) and Lainey who is very wishy-washy. We're treated to a flashback to their romance as early as chapter 2 or 3 and then don't return to the show until around 40%. The huge secret Lainey was keeping from Rook (which I guessed immediately) came around at 55%. Her problems with her family were annoying, her problems with her neighbor were annoying, everything was annoying. Rook's only true obstacle wasn't even an obstacle, and I felt really badly for the guy (poor Walt, who never stood a possibility and then got f****d by the author).

    A Lie for a Lie (All In Book 1) review []  2020-1-17 23:18

    From Puck Bunnies to the wilds of Alaska and controlling Mother-in-laws! I was totally captivated and entertained from the very beginning. Lainey is adoringly clumsy, and RJ is the sweetest gentleman.I love the compassion RJ has for Lainey as he takes tender pity on her fear of flying which also makes her terribly anxious during takeoff. He’s a big, very well built, gorgeous man who attracts all kinds of attention, both male and female, but he just wants to obtain away and be himself without all the hype of his hockey persona. It’s refreshing to see that Lainey has no idea who he is and is grateful for his company during the flight.I have fun Lainey’s naivety but subtle strength as she prepares to spend a considerable amount of time alone in the wilds of Alaska doing her research. She comes from a huge family, but having been homeschooled didn’t slow her down on her determination to pursue a stellar education.I was totally entertained with RJ’s attempt to care for Lainey during her illness and couldn’t support laughing throughout his shopping expedition with Kody. He didn’t miss a beat and never gives up! My heart melted with RJ being a hands-on dad and a real partner to Lainey. He even takes on her very controlling mother and anxious father!This is such an involved story you can’t support but be immersed in all that is going on and ride the roller coaster of emotions that come with it. I could understand Lainey’s parents’ need to support their daughter but also agree with Lainey’s determination to be independent and successful in her life.I enjoyed every bit of this unbelievable story and felt rewarded with the fabulous ending. I look forward to reading more of this series in the future!

    A Lie for a Lie is book 1 in Helena Hunting’s fresh All In series, set in her Pucked universe!I’ve been anxiously awaiting Rook’s (RJ) story ever since we met him “partying” with Lance & I’m satisfied to say Helena did not disappoint! His story is better than I could’ve ever imagined!It’s the off season & RJ’s looking to honor a family tradition. At the same time, Lainey’s looking for some courage & independence. While their first encounter may not be “normal”, they search what they didn’t know they required in the other...But what happens in Alaska, doesn’t always stay in Alaska.What follows is the funny, hot, sexy story I’ve come to expect from Helena with a surprising twist along the way. My feelings while reading were all over the board. Smiles, laughs, frustration, love & yes, even a couple tears...and as a bonus, we obtain glimpses of our favorite Pucked guys & gals throughout this story. As always they bring the laughs & remind me how much I absolutely love this Pucked Family!You don’t need to have read the Pucked series to read (& love) this book. So, if you haven’t read Helena before, A Lie for a Lie is definitely a amazing put to start!

    Squeee! I loved Rook and Lainey and I really enjoyed seeing my favorite characters from the Pucked series create cameos with their babies!!! This book was really well balanced IMHO. Yes there is heat and humor and heart (my 3 H's of romance), but both characters were dealing with bigger problems than just their relationship - grief, PTSD, and growing pains (both career wise and personally). Both Rook and Lainey showed depth and growth throughout the book. I don't wish to give away too much because a huge part of the plot is a surprise that I personally enjoy, but I know some people don't. I thought that the groveling that Rook had to do was top notch and the angst level was was excellent (enough to hold me riveted but not so much that it gave me agita). I'm so looking forward to A Favor for A Favor and the rest of this All In series!

As always they bring the laughs & remind me how much I absolutely love this Pucked Family!You don’t need to have read the Pucked series to read (& love) this book. So, if you haven’t read Helena before, A Lie for a Lie is definitely a amazing put to start!

    A Lie for a Lie: All In, Book 1 review []  2020-1-18 21:10

    Squeee! I loved Rook and Lainey and I really enjoyed seeing my favorite characters from the Pucked series create cameos with their babies!!! This book was really well balanced IMHO. Yes there is heat and humor and heart (my 3 H's of romance), but both characters were dealing with bigger problems than just their relationship - grief, PTSD, and growing pains (both career wise and personally). Both Rook and Lainey showed depth and growth throughout the book. I don't wish to give away too much because a huge part of the plot is a surprise that I personally enjoy, but I know some people don't. I thought that the groveling that Rook had to do was top notch and the angst level was was excellent (enough to hold me riveted but not so much that it gave me agita). I'm so looking forward to A Favor for A Favor and the rest of this All In series!

    Oh such an angsty read! I totally loved this one! I couldn't place it down. Laura was with her girls in Vegas for a bachelorette party. She was always focused on work and when she set eyes on Adam, she knew he was a distraction she wanted. He was smooth, tall, and sexy as sin. They went from hello to I do in no time. It was supposed to be just fun. They thought it could be fixed fast and easy. But that wasnt the case. Things got more complicated as time went on. They both hid something from the other. Now when the info of their secrets come to the surface can they move past it and fond their HEA? Grab it and search out. Had to purchase this one. Dozens of gift reads.

    This could have between a cliche--man and woman meet in Vegas, have a fling, and obtain married. It is anything but. The story is so much more. Two people search each other and create the most of the time they have. There is a small matter that is left out and causes a rift. But, in the end, love prevails. A romance in every sense of the word. Lisa delivers in spades.

    Oh what a amazing book. Laura and Adam meet in Vegas and have an immediate connection. Laura was hesitant at first, but her mates talk her into giving Adam a chance. Adam is there for business and when he sees Laura, he knows he has to have her. At first, I was like, I'm not going to like reading it because I was getting a"cheating" vibe from Adam, but the more I read the more I found that was not the case. However, Adam was rather wishy washy until the end. Then he redeemed himself to me. Just remember, what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas.

    4.5 starsIf you are going to do something crazy then Vegas it is baby! Adam is a sales rep for a medical equipment company and is doing some business and gambling in Vegas when he sees a woman with auburn hair doing a sexy small dance, across the room in a casino, after having won roulette. Laura is a self-employed owner of a company that designs stuff for weddings. She is in Vegas for a bachelorette party but her plans change when her mates encourage her to hook up with Adam, the handsome stranger. From the beginning the two are like moths to a flame as their chemistry just burns from their initial meeting. The more time they spend together they realize that there may be more to this than just a fling. However, Adam is hiding his past. What will he do when his past comes back into his life and where will that leave Laura? Not to be outdone, Laura is hiding a secret of her own and she cannot bring herself to tell Adam for fear of his reaction. This is one entertaining read filled with drama, surprises and realistic characters that showcase their vulnerabilities and their strengths to enhance the plot. I look forward to reading more books by this author. I volunteered to read an advance copy of this book.

    Lying review []  2019-12-24 20:51

    "Honesty is the best policy" an old saying goes, and many, if not most people would say that they create it the model of their own private ethic, at least to an extent. But, a lot of people feel that so called "white lies", lies that they think cause no hurt or whose truth content would create no difference, are somewhat permissible and even important at times. But what if these moments of opportunity are the difference between a amazing globe and a semi-decent world? In short, is it always wrong to lie?Philosopher and neuroscientist Sam Harris' long-form essay Lying approaches this question and answers with a resounding "yes". In fact, Harris' whole thesis could be summed up on pg. 24 of his book: "Do not lie."Harris at the beginning of the book states that he started thinking about lying seriously when he took a class at Stanford University called "The Ethical Analyst", and the entire course revolved around whether or not one should lie. The book is divided into three sections, one in which Harris makes arguments about why telling the truth in all situations is best, the second section is a dialogue between Harris and his professor who taught "The Ethical Analyst", Ronald A. Howard, and the final part is Harris answering questions from readers who read the e-book ver of Lying, which was released prior to the hardback ver being mentioned previously, Harris book focuses on white lies, and on situations where honesty gives the person the info they need in order to live the best life possible. Perhaps one of his best examples is a situation we have all encountered or at least heard about before, namely whether someone looks fat or not in a certain outfit. Harris writes:"Most people think that the correct respond to this question is always "No"....But this is an edge case for a reason:It crystallizes what is tempting about white lies. Why not simply reassure someone with a little lie and send her out into the globe more confident? Unless one commits to telling the truth in situations like this, however, one feels that edges creep inward, and exceptions to the principle of honesty start to multiply. Very soon, you may search yourself behaving as most people do quite effortlessly:shading the truth, or even lying outright, without thinking about it. The price is too high." (Lying pg. 15-16)In short, Harris is saying that when we commit to be honest in every situation, we will be better people and less stressed with how much we have to remember, because we will have nothing to hide. Harris does also comment that tact plays a role in this, one can be truthful without being rude. I admit that I at times struggle with this, but it can be done. Harris also talks about "Faint Praise", which is giving someone a compliment when one has not been earned. For instance, Harris mentions a mate who is a successful writer, but once gave Harris a text that he thought was terrible. Rather than avoid the question, Harris told his mate that the piece was not his best work. The reaction was that Harris' mate trusted him more, and now knows if Harris praises his work, he is being sincere. Since relationships are built upon trust, it follows that we must be honest in order to have rewarding, fulfilling relationships.If there is one failing in Harris' book, it a failure that is common to his other writings, which is not taking the arguments of his enemies seriously. On pages 28-29 of his book, Harris mentions that philosopher Immanuel Kant thought that under no circumstance could lying be justified, and then dismisses him by saying that he has no reason to take Kant seriously. Here is where Harris shows that he is a scientist first and a moral philosopher second. Kant is one of the greatest philosophers in moral theory, one can hardly search a volume dealing with moral philosophy that does not mention Kant extensively. Furthermore, Kant justified his claim in his different Critiques, but Harris fails to mention this at all, he just dismisses Kant and moves on. This is a characteristic that Harris shows in his other work, such as in The Moral Landscape, when he dismisses David Hume's Is-Ought distinction (which fellow utilitarian Peter Singer calls him out on in a latest podcast), or in The End Of Faith, when he dismisses Noam Chomsky's arguments about how interventionism by the United States in the Middle East helped to bring out the September 11 attacks. It is not enough to simply dismiss a reputable philosopher with whom one disagrees; one must present charity to their argument by presenting it at its best and showing why your position is better than theirs. Harris has not yet learned this lesson.Overall, Lying is a book that I recommend to both the general reader and philosopher alike. It is interesting, short, and a joy to read overall. It can even be said that if we take Harris' arguments seriously, we can be better people, have better relationships, and ultimately a better planet.

    The book is presented in three sections. The body of the book is the author's premise: lying erodes trust and is always a detriment that we should avoid, as individuals and as a society. The second part is an interview with the professor whose course inspired the book. The third is a question and respond format of questions presented by readers of an earlier edition. I felt the three sections should have been combined into one work, with more illustrative anecdotes and less hypotheticals.

    I liked this book, partly because it suits my taste about ethics and private relationships.I believe in honesty and I believe in truthful e issue is, a lot of times the thing we see as real today might be a lie in the future because life is unpredictable. I might be careless about that promotion today but in two years from now I might be in need of cash and in need of that same promotion.I haven t lied but I have been inconsistent.And I feel the book does not state well enough the need for clear opinions first, with truth being the side-effect. Truth is something you need to think well about before you say it.I believe that without the important forethought, being real "prematurely" could severely hurt your sense of all, I liked this book, it s worth reading and considering its ideas.

    This is a easy work by Sam Harris and perhaps the least controversial. Although not a exhaustive discourse, Harris provides that lying is both socially and personally damaging and should be no means is it simple to remain truthful, amongst a globe with double speaking politicians and a competitive job marketing, but that doesn't curtail Harris' conviction. He says "We are talking about a culture poisoned by lies. And that is a culture worth changing. " Although not easy, truth will bring about a redeemed culture.I am familiar with ethics, having read Benthram, Kant , and the like. For those like myself, Harris doesn't say anything new. Although his power of rhetoric stands out as compelling of this e most insightful point of Harris' which I believe society would do well to remember revolves around alturistic white lies.Harris says "When we presume to lie for the benefit of others, we have decided that we are the best judges of how much they should understand about their own lives—about how they appear, their reputations, or their prospects in the world."This continues with the issue of flattery when Harris says "And yet we are often tempted to encourage others with insincere praise. In this we treat them like children—while failing to support them prepare for encounters with those who will judge them like adults." Necessary concepts to consider.A committment to truth is a difficult thing, especially if one is late to embrace this value. But truth is essentisal to private development.  "because a commitment to telling the truth requires that one pay attention to what the truth is in every moment. What sort of person are you? How judgmental, self-interested, or petty have you become?"(loc 118).The only time Harris admits the value of lying, although without recommending it, is in response to a reader question that created it into the audio book. Harrow explains the benefit of untruth is that is the most benign weapon we can use in times of conflict, much less damaging than a gun when it comes to problems of self defense. Yet the integrity of the lying person isn't exempt from scrutiny in these situation, and there's no guarantee of positive outcomes even with deception appearing the intelligent though not the focus of the book, harris makes a home run on the value of Justice when he says "One of the worst things about breaking the law is that it puts you at odds with an indeterminate number of other people. This is among the a lot of corrosive effects of unjust laws: They tempt peaceful and (otherwise) honest people to lie so as to avoid being punished for behavior that is ethically blameless."The final reader submitted question in the audiobook ver of lying was answered unsatisfactory to me. The reader explains he is a non-believing Jew, but being honest about his lack of Jewish belief would hurt a lot of relationships and likely create him lose custody of his children (I'm telling the cliff notes version). The reader suggests that Harris is coming from a spot of elitism, where others are not in such a spot to act as Harris. An intriguing point, related to those who claim philosophy is naval gazing for those who escape the plight of the true world. How does Harris answer? He comments on the issue of religion and says yes, this is a difficult  situation. Harris offers no answer, but rather says this is why begin discussions are to be valued with free thinking people. To read between the lines, I suggest that Harris would have this gentlemen reveal his lack of religious belief in an effort to (ethically) further society through free thinking. It is no simple feat, and the reward to this man himself may be minimal, but that is why people should see to the goods beyond themselves - ethics consider all.  To reconsider the opening quote "We are talking about a culture poisoned by lies. And that is a culture worth changing." and hopefully the sacrifices created now will driver future generations. I have no criticism of "Lyings" arguements. I agree there is an ethical imperative to honesty and didn't search a issue with Harris' conveyance. This is a conversational book, not one of hardcore dead to rights philosophy; a amazing conversation starter at least to lead to deeper thoughts.I paid 13 for the kindle ebook and audio book pairing, which took me around an hour to obtain though. I am content with my purchase as it has allowed me thoughts to consider. I can't say I would recommend this book to others, as it is both entry level and costly, and my lying mates would probably not read it.  However, Sam Harris commitment to truth establishes him as a leader in a time of demagoguery, and for his virtue I will continue to help him.

    Harris nailed this one on the head. In a globe where lying is a kind of "spending currency" to disburse one's accumulated (or assumed, or perceived) goodwill as a person of integrity and gravitas, Harris blows large holes in the idea that such behavior can somehow strike a balance, since the telling of (what one believes to be) fact on a regular basis can be largely undone by one or two little acts of untruth. There is not a balance, and cannot be one. We're all going to be softening our words to prevent hurt, and no one in society expects brutal, damaging honesty to others. But what's expected, and required, is restraint in one's glibness when fibbing to "save the feelings of others," and Harris rightly points out it belongs more properly among family and co-workers than in the public sphere of ideas and argument, where honesty requires that we don't draw false equivalences, and we call out poor ideas for what they are. Without that, we not only diminish the discourse, we diminish the reasoning, and we endanger our very liberties through our weakness in the face of telling the hard truth in the city square.

    Have pondered over this question for years and have discussed with people too. I can see so a lot of of my own thoughts reflecting..especially around not having to lie to kids because the most valuable 'trust' is at stake. I believe so. We lie and then we punish them for lying to us. That's not just unfair it hampers the health of the relationship. This book gives amazing insights but still leaves so a lot of questions unanswered. Will it really create it better if we did not lie or is it possible to have a manual that told us when is it OK to lie..assuming everyone is not going to be capable of exercising their independent thinking or intellect. A lot of people just need to be 'told'...which they'd learn from others in their societies only if others 'knew'. Who is the authority in this ever changing moral landscape? I obviously have to do a lot more reading, thinking and discussing and what I understand (if at all) is just the hint of the iceberg. This book is a brilliant work to obtain one know more about this complex subject. Love the interviews of Ron Howard and the readers.

    Very quick, compact and simple to read text. Several of the concepts, I have witnessed and can attest to the truth of sically, most people wouldn’t place lying up there with murder, theft, etc. BUT people should take a hard look at the concepts in this essay. Because lying truly is an evil, leading to so a lot of unforeseen consequences, such as the surprising study showing that people will also start to denigrate or dislike the person they lie to, just like as in other abusive behaviors.

    While the book had some interesting points, I was hoping for more. I thought that the concept of lying could be more deeply explored and looked at from other perspectives and angles. This book basically just says that it is poor for having authentic relationships and also that it is beautiful much always the right decision not to lie. That's search and interesting, but I was hoping for other locations as well. For instance, I thought it would be neat if they looked into what lying about things does to you psychologically. Or how truth became promoted as a moral thing and why. I just think that the book could have included other areas, because as it was, it seemed a bit of a shallow look at the subject. The title created me hope for something more inclusive about lying as a subject.

    Thank Goodness some one has written a easy defense of telling the truth. This is simple to understand and should give every honest person the vocabulary to stand up to liars. I have far to often forgiven a lie believing the liar would live and learn. Harris explains cogently that the psychopaths among us are just to sick for us to have to deal with. I would appreciate some links between this perfect book and the works about how numerous psychopaths are in every day society.I have spent a career prosecuting liars and yet never came to understand the mind set of the psychopath. It is indeed a pleasure to see some one defending common decency. Now, I believe that coming to grips with how a free society prevents psychopaths from harming so a lot of innocent people, is the question of the near future. We know know how to identify these monsters. The next step is to use the courts to place these creatures out of business when they first encounter the justice system......that could start with contempt of court investigations into the perjury that is too often excused in the courtroom. There should be enhanced resources place to weeding these destroyers out of the system. Like the rest of us they take time to excellent their life's work. The key is to catch these people and label them with perjury convictions early on. The second conviction should come with out sized penalties. To do less just leaves innocent people as prey for these cunning liars. The harsh reality came to me from an FBI expert. There are far more of these things than anyone believes. And they are so sick that we easy cannot understand what they are thinking and tend to be dismissive of the lies finding it easier to just ignore it like it will go away.....it won't . While we can now identify these people quickly using interviews with skilled psychologists, the tip from the specialists is not to believe the justice system will protect you from these destroyers. At this point society is simply not putting the effort into this necessary subject.

    I often see books that take a easy topic and drag it on for far too a lot of pages. Sam has taken a topic that affects us all and condensed it down into the most direct but thought provoking selection I have ever read. My family has been affected by lies for decades. For so long I thought it was normal. It wasn't until a few years ago that I started to realize that living in lies only begets difficulty. After reading Sam's thoughts and studies on lying, if I had a method to stamp the book with a Grade AAA from my own life lessons, I would. Short, concise and direct, it is the excellent size for a short read and a short time to dedicate to something that might change your perspective forever. Thank you Sam!

    License Plate Frame,2PCS Silicone License Plate Frame with Drainage Holes ,Rust-Proof, Weather-Proof and Rattle-Proof License Plate Frame for Car - Black review []  2020-1-18 21:44

     One issue I’ve always had with customizing my license plate was the fact that it would scratch my vehicle when I wanted to change something. This actually changes everything for me because it no longer scratches my car. The gel of the license plate frame allows me to easily take it on and off if I’d ever like to switch it with another frame. This is really easily accessible and I’d recommend you to purchase this if your looking to no longer hurt your car. I’d give this 10 stars out of 5 if I could haha. Amazing product!

    Soft silicone protects vehicle paint and completely stops any rattle. If you're really OCD about plate/frame rattling and possibly scratching your precious paint, then obtain these!one-side openning design ,easily push your license plate to this silicense plate frame . no need any strength ,No need worry about sharp edge of your license plate scratch the frame. After I place in the screws I checked the edges and they maintained a nice straight edge. I thought maybe the torque of the screws would cause it to warp but the frame kept nice straight edges. Took about 5 mins total to so, This license plate frame with 6 drainage holes , I drove my vehicle washed , It appears the silicone material has sealed enough not to let water to be retained behind it. Overall I think I found my solution and with Preferential price for 2pack,another one for my wife's Sports vehicle as a bonus .Very affordable, Highly recommended!

    My rear license plate stands off from my vehicle about a half inch and sits really close to the handle to begin and close the rear hatch (SUV). I’ve chop or scratches my hand more than a few times before I bought a plastic frame to cover the edges of my plate. The plastic frame rattled and drove me crazy though. This silicone frame looks amazing & is completely silent... even when my child accidentally slams the hatch shut! I have studs on my vehicle rather than screw holes so I can’t speak for the hardware, but the frames themselves are awesome.

    When I park sometimes I gently tap the vehicle I front of me. With the plastic frame I used to have it was a bit dangerous as it could of scuffed or scratched the vehicles bumper. Now that I got these silicone frames I don’t have the worry anymore especially since they protrude out further than the license plate itself.I liked the small plastic button covers for the screws that snap on. The side of the frame is stretchy to let the license plate to slide per glad I now have these frames

    Ordered the dual silicone license plate frames and they came next day as expected. The license plate frames are of amazing quality and come with all the hardware and nut covers to give you a finished appearance. There were no instructions so here is a suggestion. If you wish to use the 2 part black nut covers, create sure you place the fastening bolts through the lower part of the bolt cover or you are going to be taking the bolts out a second time. The bolt covers also just press on the part the bolt passes through so I am not sure how long they will stay attached. Finally the actual frame is also not long enough to cover the entire plate, so one side of the plate will extend beyond the cover by 1/16". All in a mixed bag of amazing and poor but I have them on my vehicles and they don't rattle or advertise for the vehicle dealer so I guess they are doing what they are supposed to an addition to this review the company reached out to me and agreed to give me a refund, since I was not satisfied with this product. I decided to hold it, since it is not significant enough of a issue for me to take the frames off the vehicle and send them back. The seller is obviously serious about making their customers happy.

    From the description this product seems too amazing to be true. Unfortunately, it is. From the moment I took them out, I see that one side is super flimsy because they created a slot in the end to facilitate sliding the plate into the frame. Unfortunately, it's so flimsy I'll give it 5 vehicle washes max before it's broken. Next, the screws supplied are the wrong kind. They supply machine screws, and what you need are wood screws (with a pointed end) or self tapping screws. I found the supplied screws to be unusable. Lastly, the decorative caps that cover the screws would not snap on without pushing a small hard (not much really) and then they shattered. So in the end... you'll need a broom handy to clean up all the plastic bits laying on the ground. I got 1 in 4 caps to snap on without breaking.

    I'm Not Gonna Lie: And Other Lies You Tell When You Turn 50 review []  2020-1-22 22:30

    I chose this rating based on how he revealed himself. I use to love George Lopez but he seems to be a misogynist particularly with his ex-wife . Who by the method saved his life by giving him her kidney. I still think he's a amazing comedian but he needs to stop being so vain. A very revealing book . worth it.

    Amazing bonus for anyone on the cusp of the huge 5-0. I laughed out loud in public and people thought I was mental. His views of turning older are spot on. I am not quite there yet, but I am in the upper 40's and I have to admit that I have experienced some of the life altering experiences that create you wanna cry. I am writing this with 175 strength reading glasses. Amazing bye 20-20 vision.

    George Lopez turns out to be a very self involved person. His life seems to rotate around what is amazing for him even to the detriment of people he should care about. The only mention of his ex-wife comes during a story about how she caused him discomfort because she didn't place out one evening. When he talks at length about his life saving kidney surgery her name doesn't come up once. I latest saw a clip of an interview during which he said that after she gave him her kidney he was "stuck" with her. All in all after seeing that interview and reading this book I am not as much of a fan. Maybe it's better not to know so much about the stars you have fun watching. I got a much better impression of him from his first book.

    Absolutely one of the best books, ever. Brutally honest, and also very funny; as one would expect! I highly recommend this book! (George autographed mine a few weeks ago after his comedy your show! He'd so authentic! And nice!)

    The tittle is I'm not gonna lie...and he says this more than a couple times in the book. He talks about his divorce a small bit, & talks about his kidney disease more than a couple of times...but never once mentions that it was his ex-wife who donated her kidney & saved his life. That to me is beautiful lowdown & ducked up! Ok, The marriage didn't work out, but how about not taking pot shots at the woman who saved your life. Besides that the book was beautiful entertaining, so pick it up.

    Lies review []  2020-1-23 1:36

    Kylie Scott wrote the fabulous, funny & sexy STAGE DIVE series. I loved every single book in that series. Because of this, I've tried other books she has is book is a true genre-jump for this author, and sadly I do not love it. I finished it, because the writing was amazing enough to obtain me there, but I was left very unsatisfied.What I liked: The PREMISE!!! What a unbelievable idea for a rom con!What I didn't like: The author just doesn't deliver the e character is...boring. He has no true personality on the pages, no depth. We learn his childhood has a lot to do with his life choices (don't they all), but there is no angst displayed, no true emotion. Also, he behaves like a true tool not once, but twice to the heroine, for reasons that I just didn't accept. And I don't understand why she did, e heroine is fun, but her spine could use some stiffening. And I wanted to FEEL her fear, terror, grief and pain. I really did not. She just kind of rolls with whatever happens, and we don't see beneath her surface much.

    This is not my favourite Kylie Scott book unfortunately. There was no true chemistry between Betty and Thom and the story felt very rushed and not very well thought out. I even found myself having to re-read paragraphs to create sense of it. Plus certain aspects were just not believable and the ending was too e largest gripe I have is the "poor me" fat female protagonist, this gets very old very quick especially as this seems to be a hero type that this author likes to write. I lost any and all sympathy towards Betty with her negative attitude towards the view she thinks the globe has of her. I don't really understand why there has to be a fixation on body ever, Kylie Scott is amazing at delivering a laugh and even though I didn't have fun the book especially it did obtain a giggle or two out of me.Ayway, I think the premise is amazing but the execution lacking.

    John Wick can move over because Thom Lange is on the stage and taking names. Kylie Scott has taken John Wick, Jason Bourne, and Harry Tasker (True Lies) and tossed them in a blender with her magic sprinkles of sexy male cluelessness , a heaping dose of snarky plus size diva, and loads comical, sarcastic dialogue to make the excellent spy romance. Lies by Kylie Scott is a comical adventure in romantic espionage. Betty Dawson is more than a huge girl with rainbows, unicorns, and guns who does more than save the day. She is handing Thom Lange an explosive dose of his own medicine. The man deliberately gave her poor sex. She may strangle him in his sleep but not until she gets to experience the super sexy spy  sexiness. He may look like her boring normal fiancee that rocks a pair of abs (she never knew he had) and he may be super confident, but is he any amazing at true orgasm inducing sex?She's determined to obtain some private intel and experience before she kills him or they both die. Who would of thought robotic Thom Lange could give an organsm while killing the poor 'll take more than an apology and amazing orgasm. Thom loves Betty with all of his heart and now he has to prove it. First he has to hold her lie Scott is a pure genius! When she picks up a pen she lets her imagination and amazing sense of humor take over, the results are magnificent. She gives her readers a FUN reading experience while giving them goosebumps with her sexy romantic stories. Lies is more than a rom-com suspense romance, it's a real adventure in the globe of Kylie Scott's imagination.I highly recommend reading this book. It will not disappoint!

    Lies review []  2020-1-23 1:36

    So,I'm reading Lies, and it's just not doing it for me. I take a break at chapter six to read the poor reviews on Amazon, and, unsurprisingly, the one and two star reviews mostly cover my problems with this novel. Tellingly, no one is complaining about porn or poor language--a poor sign since there's definitely some smut. And I mean that in a amazing way. At this point, I need to assess whether I really wish to sacrifice a couple of hours to finish this book. I decide to compromise, skip to the latest three chapters, and review it with a focus on my private problems with the novel.I am definitely a fan of Kylie Scott, despite the fact that I'm not usually a fan of first person show tense POV whether single or dual. I also don't care for thesaurus abuse or preposition dropping, but those are minor caveats in this case. However, when Scott is on, she's really on, so Scene Dive 1, 2 &3; Dive Bar 1; and Repeat totally worked for me. So why doesn't Lies?I didn't actively dislike Betty & Thom, but I did search their characters really flat and their romance less than engaging. The so-called banter definitely didn't scintillate. Part of the problem with Thom is that we never obtain his POV, but the whole impassive male thing leans towards the unsexy side of alpha. . . or absent, as the case may be.. Betty, despite the snark, is too much the mellow, rather passive "curvy girl." Worse, she's with Thom in the first put because he asked and he's not awful. There's a small too much reverse Walter Mitty here for my taste. She develops some intriguing facets by the story's end, but by chapter six I'd run out of patience. Also, just as a side note, I hate the names Betty & ough the emphasis is clearly on the spy trope, this is also a street trip novel without any of narrative goodies that create street trips my fave. The humor is based more on inappropriate violence and peculiar modes of transportation than on forced proximity or hero interactions. I also adore street trips for the method they peel away the layers and reveal the protagonists' internal selves to the reader and to each other . This does not happen in Lies. There's method too much description of (un)safe houses, ugly vehicles, and uglier firefights, keeping the action quick and shallow. So for the spy story? Total fail. The Real Lies references are obvious, yet I can't support but think about the method tales of espionage have evolved over the latest 60 years. (Yeah, I'm old. So what.) A lot of of the major spy franchises have always been so over the top that the evolution of spy satire has been natural yet only narrowly separated from the genre it mocks. Often it's impossible to tell what's humor and what's not. The issue with this is that both standard espionage plot devices as well as humor based on said plot devices has become old hat. Doesn't obtain much more trite than mysterious international spy agencies full of clowns with animal code names where only the amazing guys are furry. As a side note, it's too simple to compose a spy story from a compenium of cliches with no underlying logical structure or believable motivation to shore them up. The inclusion of a completely pointless torture stage early in tbe story exemplifies this problem. Like Betty, we can predict what's going to happen cuz we've seen it on the screen a hundred times, and that makes for some tedious and annoying e twists that turn up in the final chapters of the book are effective as plot devices but don't really blow the reader away (hur) because by then, as a romance aficionado, you're so fargin' POed about the suffering the heroine's gone through due to aforementioned furry clowns. Even if you don't like her that much to begin with, Betty's trials and tribulations are more rage-inducing and unfunny than adventurous. It's really hard to reconcile so much unsubtle blood and gore with a credible satisfied ending.I guess I've spent more time reviewing this than I would have spent reading the whole book, but that's ok. To borrow a line from the SBs, I did it so you won't have to. So two stars for the DNF, though admittedly I cheated, but at least I avoided an excess of spoilers.

    I went into this book beautiful blind. I knew that it was supposed to be various than the Kylie norm. I was hooked from the first page. I was on vacation and all I wanted to do was sit down and read. This was my first five star read in I don’t know how long. Brava Kylie! I knew there was a reason you were one of my e heroine is an amazing plus size girl that I could totally relate to. She just rolls with it. The character is a total hunk. I would be fine with him walking into my life. I love the method that he is obsessed with e storyline is action packed and quick paced and never allow me obtain bored. It is a stand-alone. I wonder if we’ll obtain any other books from this world. I wouldn’t be angry at that.

    “Okay, wow. I did NOT expect that.” Thus starts my first (and only) line of notes from reading Lies. See, I rarely bother reading blurbs for 1-click authors, and even when I do read them, by the time I actually obtain the book on my e-reader, I usually only have a hazy impression of what the book is about. So, when I saw it download (there might have been some impatient refreshing while I was waiting), I began reading without a clue as to what the book was about. Then bam! I hit that beginning. And from that first explosion to the latest gunshot, the author took me on a roller coaster ride of a story that had me gasping and laughing, and far too busy turning pages to see what happens next to worry about anything so mundane as note taking.With more unbelievable characters from this author, I loved Betty and her sarcasm, and I’m beautiful sure I wish to be her when I grow up, lol. She’s shaken by the sudden violence in her world, and by the lies she’s been told, but she doesn’t allow any of that stop her for long, and though she has her vulnerabilities, she really steps up and shows her strength in her fresh reality. I loved Thom, too; in spite of his occasional utter cluelessness when it comes to relationships, he’s protective and possessive of Betty, and determined to do what he has to in order to hold her safe. There are several other intriguing characters besides Betty and Thom, and I, for one, wouldn’t be adverse to more stories about the is fresh standalone is full of the mix of humor and heat I’ve come to expect from this author, plus the addition of a huge heaping of mystery and suspense with plenty of plot twists as Betty is introduced into the true Thom’s world, and gets to know the real ver of the man she has been engaged to. One of my favorite reads from this author. 5+ starsB2B Kelly

    Betty has had enough. Her fiancé, Thom is a sweet man, but there isn’t any spark. She’s all set to leave him, but when the condo they share is blown up as she is leaving, and she is kidnapped, Betty learns that the Thom she thought she knew isn’t the true Thom. Thom has done all he can to create Betty happy, but hold things as normal as possible. After all she can’t know that he is an operative, and that his job is less than safe. As Thom’s secrets are revealed and Betty gets to see the true Thom, her feelings become hard to ignore. With Betty in danger and Thom trying to save both of their lives, the feelings and connection they previously shared, albeit, ones lacking any heat, have turned white hot. In Thom’s line of work feelings are considered a distraction, and one he can’t have, but when push comes to shove can he and Betty create it work? That is, if they can create it out of this situation om the very first chapter in this book I was hooked. I could kind of assume how things were going to play out from the description, but ‘Lies’ was full of the unexpected, which had my continuously turning the page to search out how things were going to play out. This book wasn’t all suspense though, there is also humor and romance involved. There were parts of this book that had my laughing out loud, I absolutely loved Betty. She is sassy and not afraid to place Thom in his place, which is my favorite type of heroine. Thom, we can’t forget about Thom, you could feel the love he had for Betty as the book went on, and he would do anything to protect her! This book hit all the marks for what I consider a amazing book, I’m crossing my fingers for this to turn into a series!

    Lies is a breath of new air - snappy, funny, sweet, and original! 😍 I loved it.🖤I think Kylie Scott writes unbelievable opening scenes and this was no exception! A romance that begins with the leading lady breaking up with the hero? 🤔 Yep! You’ll just have to read to see how she pulls it off.🖤I adored Betty, rooted for Thom, and loved seeing their relationship transform over the course of the book. Betty is smart, strong, funny, and authentic. I would love to read more characters like her! In fact, if she were real, I’d invite her out for drinks! 🥃🍹🍺 I know we’d be mates because I already bonded with her over the concept of rage-napping. 😆🖤Lies was a page-turner for me: exciting without being melodramatic, light without being fluffy, sweet without being saccharine, and had just the right amount of 🔥🔥🔥.🖤Under it all, there is a well-written depth of truth about the difficulties of relationships: keeping high expectations for how others treat you, being true (and therefore vulnerable) with people you care about, and staying connected in a meaningful way. All challenges I could definitely relate to!🖤I think this book would appeal to, well, really anyone who enjoys romance. You should create it your next summer read!
