ARC REVIEW! Cheater by Rachel Van Dyken

5 Stars



Another novel that both elicits laughs and ALL THE FEELS. I wasn't sure about this book when I first started it, but two chapters in and I was riding the Lucas train. Full Speed Ahead!

I love a good romance that has me giggling at it as much as I am swooning. Avery is just as clumsy and non filtered as I am and I adored that. I would have reacted much the same to a lot of the things she did in this book and it made it all the better.

You are awkward too, admit it.

Then there was Lucas. I swear someone needed to just smack him upside the head once of twice. He made some dumb decisions, but in the end you get it. You get Lucas. You might not agree with how he went about things, but you laugh a bit with/at him, and you get it.

This is a romance that you end up truly falling in love with. By the end of it you are swooning all the same. It is a novel by Rachel Van Dyken, what isn't to love about that.

Hang in there. Give Avery and Lucas a chance and you will fall in love with a cheater. Promise.


Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions. But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell. Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women. Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…
