Review: First Lie Wins - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

Evie Porter has everything a nice, Southern girl could want: a perfect, doting boyfriend, a house with a white picket fence and a garden, a fancy group of friends. The only catch: Evie Porter doesn’t exist.

The identity comes first: Evie Porter. Once she’s given a name and location by her mysterious boss Mr. Smith, she learns everything there is to know about the town and the people in it. Then the mark: Ryan Sumner. The last piece of the puzzle is the job.

Evie isn’t privy to Mr. Smith’s real identity, but she knows this job will be different. Ryan has gotten under her skin, and she’s starting to envision a different sort of life for herself. But Evie can’t make any mistakes–especially after what happened last time.

Because the one thing she’s worked her entire life to keep clean, the one identity she could always go back to—her real identity—just walked right into this town. Evie Porter must stay one step ahead of her past while making sure there’s still a future in front of her. The stakes couldn’t be higher–but then, Evie has always liked a challenge…

Review: First Lie Wins

Review: First Lie Wins

A professional con woman takes a job that upends her carefully curated life, forcing her into a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with her mysterious boss.

Evie Porter is not her real name, but she’s used to slipping into aliases with ease. She’s the perfect Southern girl to Ryan Sumner—her boyfriend, and mark. The job is starting to feel different, however, and what’s real and not is feeling a lot more blurred. Her mysterious boss, Mr. Smith, is tracking her every move, however, and she can’t afford to make any mistakes.

Then one day, she meets one of Ryan’s old friends, and his girlfriend, Lucca Marino—problem is, Lucca Marino is her real identity and it’s clear Mr. Smith has other plans for her.

Now, Evie must finish the job while she tries to stay one step ahead of the all-knowing and very dangerous Mr. Smith.

This was such an unexpectedly fun book to read. It’s a fast-paced, high-stakes thrill ride rife with twists and turns, making it the perfect one-sitting binge. This is the book you need to shake off a book slump. It’s the book you’ll want to be talking about with all your friends. And it’s the book you need to pick up now if you haven’t devoured it yet!
