Summary

Getting shot was the last thing Lia Broderick expected to happen when she stopped by the bank on her way to work - that and having the gorgeous woman from the coffee shop down the street be the one to rescue her....

FBI Special Agent Dylan McKenzie is a woman with a mission - locate Steven Horton, the witness who could single-handedly bring down the Giametta Crime Family. With Horton hiding from both the mob and the FBI, Dylan and her team are assigned the task of keeping tabs on Horton's ex-wife after mounting evidence leads them to believe he will run to her. Keeping Lia Broderick under surveillance should have been just another day on the job for Dylan. But, when Lia becomes the victim in a bank robbery gone terribly wrong, Dylan has no choice but to break cover in order to step in and save her.

Despite her best efforts to maintain a professional distance from the attractive accountant, Dylan finds herself being reeled deeper and deeper into Lia's life. As the investigation heats up - both under the covers and out - it becomes clear that Lia is the key to finding the evidence that the mob is willing to kill to get their hands on. When Dylan is betrayed by a rogue agent, she suddenly finds herself on the run with Lia, uncertain who she can trust. And as the mob closes in, Dylan realizes that the greatest risk is the one she's taking with her heart.

Both fun and charming, totally my kind of book

Wow, this book hits the ground running… When she goes to the bank to deposit money that morning, little does Lia know that the pretty woman she has noticed a few times lately at her favourite coffee place is there too. She doesn’t know either that she is going to get shot by bank robbers and that said woman will save her life. Then move in with her while she recovers. The most important thing she doesn’t know is that the woman, Dylan, is an FBI agent keeping an eye on her in case her ex-husband gets in touch with her on his run from the Giametta crime family.

I love Dylan and Lia together, whether they’re flirting or fighting. At first, when Lia still believes Dylan to be a computer consultant, it seems pretty obvious they’re falling for each other, easily and inevitably. Dylan tries to fight it – she’s on a job, dammit! –, but that’s fate for you. Then when all hell breaks loose and the two women have to run for their lives, they finally find themselves on an equal footing.

I’m surprised Lia didn’t feel like the most unlucky woman on Earth at times, with so many things going wrong. The reader knows why all these things happen, but she doesn’t for the longest while, and I’d have freaked out a lot more than she does if it all were happening to me.

While the pace slows down a bit after the excitement of the beginning, Little Lies is filled with adreline-fueled action scenes and many unexpectedly funny moments (Dylan baking a cake being one of them). I truly enjoyed listening to this book a lot. The narration might not have been as dynamic as I’d have liked every now and then, but it’s pretty good overall. Like many narrators whose work I like, Tia Rider Sorensen is at her best with dialogues, her voices for the different characters are varied and easy to distinguish. I especially liked the voice for Lia, most notably her little “uh huh” sounds, which worked very well with the character.

Little Lies is both fun and charming, totally my kind of book.

Recommend

The overall story was good and kept my interest through out. I always enjoy this type of drama / romance and this book contained a realistic balance between the main characters growing attractions for each other and fighting to live!. The narration at times was mono in tone yet excellent and expressively acted with the main characters voices which really added emotional depth to any scene.

Quirky predictable and so so good

What I liked about it was the narrators performance, being able to put exasperation and amusement in voice is a skill and makes this romance so much fun. This would make a great Sunday afternoon movie.

Started off well...

The beginning of the book is great. Solid writing. Good characters and dialog. After about two hours, the story lapses into a disjointed mess and the characters just get silly. I felt like the author had better in her, but it never came out.

Utter Disappointment

The author's previous book Falling Slowly is one of my all-time Audible favorites so when I noticed a new Lila Bruce I was jacked. Now I've just been through 8 hours and 10 minutes that left me with a feeling of deep disappointment. While Falling Slowly was a less than 4 hour novel it of course moved rather quickly; so I wasn't expecting this story to move at the same pace. On the other hand I didn't anticipate the slow, tired, plodding, ponderous, interminable; choose your adjective, pace of this book.
If that had been the only issue I had with this story I might've been able to give it 2 or 3 stars. Unfortunately it paled in comparison with the horrible lack of some factor approaching reality on anything other than either sex and romance; not that those were were anything real special. I won't go into great detail pertaining to all the scenes I found ridiculous or worse but one good example is one of the lead characters is a FBI agent (Dillon) whose job is keeping the other lead character (Lia) under surveillance. An attempted bank robbery brings the two of them together and Dillon soon goes undercover as her friend. Okay, so when anyone goes undercover whichever agency has them there tries to limit any contact between the agency and the undercover operative as much as possible. In her first day as Lia's friend both her supervisor and her partner call her just to bitch her out. I so hope the next book of the author's bears no resemblance to this one. Seriously though, Falling Slowly is one of the best.

Awesome story

I love the stories, where you don't know what happens next. This one had many turns, ups and downs and kept me listening. I loved the voice, and I think Tia is awesome narrator. I think the interactions between characters was perfect, kind of cute and sweet as well.

Classic crime story with unexpected ending

I enjoyed this audiobook for the most part. This genre is one of my favorites. The narration had some great parts and a few issues. Nothing to make it difficult to listen to and I'm quite picky about narration. Two small negatives are a few mispronunciations and excessive use of romance endearment like sweetheart. The ending was a surprising twist that helped cement the overall quality of the storyline. I would recommend this audiobook.

Very good story and great narration

I really enjoyed listening to this book, first of all the narration is very good and the story is exciting and well-done. I especially liked the fact that the FBI agent wasn't the usual superhuman person, but a very real flesh and blood, incesure (but capable) woman. The romance was beleivable and appealing.
