The Lying Season by K A Linde
Publication date: 4th February 2020
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Walking away from Sam Rutherford was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
It’s been five years since that day, and I’ve given up on looking for love. My focus is on my career. And it’s paid off—I’m successfully managing the reelection for the mayor of New York City.
Then Sam walks into my office as the new legal counsel. Which means I have to see him every single day from now until November. We vow to remain professional, but it’s a small office. The sly glances and his blistering charm are unavoidable.
It all feels so familiar. Too comfortable. After what happened the first time…I should know better.
If I’m not careful, he’ll break my heart all over again.
And I don’t know if I can survive Sam a second time.
So, here we are, back on the Upper East Side, but seeing some of the characters from the Cruel Crew from a different perspective.
For the most part, I liked these characters. Both of them had their moments, and the on/off from them was enough to give me emotional whiplash – but in a perversely good way. I didn’t mind that they were a bit stunted in ho they dealt with each other. I enjoyed the edge which it gave to their story. I also enjoyed both characters’ struggles with elements of themselves. Flawed MCs? Yes please.
This was a great companion novel to the main series, and a thoroughly delicious standalone.
Now, bring on Court!
