Lily is drowning in stress. When best friend Ted whisks her away to a private resort to force her to relax and hide out from real life for a bit, she never expects to meet the man of her dreams and fall in love . . .in only 2 days!
Colt is a workaholic. When his sister forces him to a tropical getaway to give him a much needed break in his routine, the last thing he expected was to form a connection with a woman he just met, especially since it is hard for him to trust others since it has burned him in the past.
Having only 2 days left of their getaways, Lily and Colt decide to make the most of it . . . agreeing to meet back at the resort in only one year to see if they gave have a chance at more.
Real life, however, has other plans for the couple. When Lily’s new movie begins filming on Colt’s ranch, both are in for the shock of their lives. Colt may have left out that he is head of an extremely wealthy and influential family and Lily may have told a few white lies as well . . .telling Colt her name was Annie and that she was an artist, not an actress from a family that has recently been tabloid material in LA. While their chemistry is still off the charts, Colt feels completely betrayed . . . it’s now up to Lily to win back his trust to see if they can rekindle what they started more than 6 months ago on their Island encounter.
7 Dirty Lies has been one of my favorite books so far this year. Both Lily and Colt are overwhelmed by life. The both have taken on responsibilities for their families and loved ones that have them stressed out, over-worked and missing out on the things that really matter in life. Their connection is immediate as both see what they can do for one another. Unfortunately, they are unable to really act upon their feelings as reality is only a few days away and neither can truly escape their life for more than a few stolen days.
Lily is an extremely strong and sassy female lead. Her parents are rotten and their actions have forced her to fight for others to see her as an individual and acknowledge her skills as an actress. If not for her best friend Ted, Lily would be left without a friend in the industry she is determined to make her mark in. Colt is thrust into the role of family patriarch at the young age of 18. All he does is work to keep the family ranch and business growing so that the rest of his family is cared for. He is a protector by nature, but has no one truly looking after him or his needs, other than his sister who has a family of her own.
Their chemistry is off the charts amazing and Alexis Anne has written some extremely steamy scenes. However, the story and characters are what I fell in love with. The depth of plot kept me turning page after page and rooting for this couple to make it back to the happiness they had when they thought they only had two days to give one another. Life, of course, gets in the way, and the couple must work to truly get to know one another in the real world. It’s a beautiful journey that you really don’t want to miss.
5 stars for 7 Dirty Lies. I have discovered a new favorite author in Alexis Anne and definitely plan to go back and read the rest of the books (all standalones) in the Tease series.
7 Dirty Lies by Alexis Anne is NOW LIVE!

It was right out of one of my movies:
Tropical island, sexy single man, two hot nights of nameless passion.
Except instead of falling into each other’s arms, we went our separate ways, never to be seen again.
Of course I thought about him all the time. The way he laughed, the way he saw right through me, the way he took no shit as his strong hands roamed my body. If there was one night I could repeat, it would be that one.
I never expected to see my mystery man again.
Fast forward to my new movie set and the handsome property owner. Yep, same guy. Same sexy, sexy guy. Our chemistry is still off the charts but there’s one tiny problem: he doesn’t trust me.
Okay, so I skipped a few important details. I don’t blame the guy. But they were just little white lies. Unfortunately if I want that movie-perfect ending I’m going to have to set the record straight…and hopefully have a little fun in the process.
About the Author:
Former archaeologist Alexis Anne (who also writes romantic suspense as Alexis Sykes) has worked as an oral historian, GIS specialist, field archaeologist, college professor, and small business owner, before deciding that working from home and writing books was a lot more satisfying. She writes steamy, sexy romance with one half of her brain and romantic suspense, action adventure, and children’s books with the other half.
Growing up she traipsed through the islands of the Gulf Coast, camped in the Everglades, dove the Keys, and generally felt more at home spending her days outdoors with a good book. She currently lives in a home filled with wild men (otherwise known as her extremely extroverted husband, The Sexy Editor, and their two kids), a husky, and a superhero guinea pig.
