Another Great Review!

Thanks to Becky at Becky's Barmy Book Blog for reviewing Pack of Lies!  Staci and I are very excited about all of the great reviews and feedback we are getting from our new novel.  If you have read Pack of Lies, please don't forget to rate it and/or review it on whatever site you purchased it from.  Every little bit helps to get the word out!

My favorite part is when Becky calls Aiden "quite cheeky".  See her review below:

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I agreed to read this as it was clearly about Werewolves which I usually really enjoy and there was a love story involved too so I thought - Great!

The story opens right in the middle of a fight and instantly I was intrigued, I wanted to know what was happening and why. Allison doesn't seem like the sort of girl to get into fist fights and for some reason I liked her straight away.

I liked how the idea of her being a werewolf was introduced - with flashes of almost fevers, grace and beauty and then stomach cramps, it made what could be an ordinary illness and simple growth turn into something much more exciting.

The story is a bit like a rollercoaster, one minute you are in an action packed scene and then the next is quite slow and explained. But I liked this, it felt like I was getting more in tune with the characters as well as being involved in the action.

I really liked Allison's brother Aiden - he was quite cheeky adn cute as well as being described as super good looking - but he's not obnoxious with it. Whereas Kendall the wolf girl is a nightmare, she is every girls nightmare at school, the Queen Bee.

Cade is cool, but I was desperate for him to get a backbone and stand up for himself!

The pacing does sweep you through quite well, but the book was quite predictable for me. I could tell pretty much what was going to happen throughout, that's not to say there weren't a couple of surprises- believe me there were, but for the most part I was like, 'well really, who'd have thought!"

The writing is well done and flows well, and reads realistically, however I will warn that there is swearing in this book. If you object to it in books then you will be put off - it has at least 3 uses of the 'f' word, a lot of 'a*s' and one 'Bas***d'. Whilst I'm not completely against swearing, I do think it is unnecessary and the book wouldn't have suffered if it had not been in there. Yes a lot of teenagers swear, but it doesn't have to be broadcasted and repeated. I'm not going to get into a debate about swearing in books, just noting that this book has it and for me, wasn't necessary at all.

Overall I did really enjoy the book and I could visualize most of it, so it did capture my imagination. I would encourage you to give it a go.sweet little story and I do want the next one to find out what happens.
Have a happy Friday :)

Rave Reviews for Pack of Lies

We have already received some great reviews for Pack of Lies!  Thank you to Hooked to Books, The Violet Hour, and Book Biter Reviews!
Here's one from Hooked to Books:

Pack of Lies was an interesting, entertaining read that was absolutely perfect for me after finishing a super emotional book. I was a little surprised to see that it contained 62 chapters, but I read through it in two days, which would have really been a 'one sit read' if I'd started earlier the first day. The easy flow Dailey and Weber created made consuming the pages easy.
I liked the concept of this book from the get go. It was nice to get some background on Allison and Aiden before things got crazy. There was actually quite a bit of background presented at the beginning of the story and little pieces of information here and there to help connect things. Normally we just get plopped into an already-shifted wolf story, but in PACK OF LIES we see the struggle Allison was having at school with her temper and the cause of her outburst; jealous high school girls. We also get a good view of the family dynamic. Even though I thought the mother's 'coming out' dialogue could have used some polishing, I had to laugh picturing the scene as she proved her story to Allison and Aiden. Moving the crew to New Mexico was definitely the right choice for the parents to make. Otherwise, Allison probably would have taken one (or two) of those snotty girls out!

There IS instalove, but c'mon, it's werewolves! They have to deal with imprinting and 'true mates' and mystical pack lore, so you really can't blame them. I enjoyed how the authors played out the romance. While technically it was a love triangle, it didn't feel that way because after Cade met Allison, that was it for him. He had no desire to fool with Kendall and her selfishness. After Allison and Cade have a few sizzling encounters, his father forbids him to go near her. That causes a huge problem, one that only Allison's mother realizes for what it is. When the secret comes out, Kendall pretty much goes insane. I almost felt bad for her because of how awful her mother was to her. But in the end, we're all responsible for our own actions, and I was very happy with how this first installment ended.I am definitely glad that I gave this book a shot. It was a great read!
You should add this book to your TBR pile right now! PACK OF LIES released April 6, so unfortunately I probably have quite a while to wait for book two. Unless it's already written and I can somehow get the authors to hand it over... Pretty please?

Hopefully, we will see lots more great reviews soon!
