Présentation de l'éditeur

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read Liar, the second book in The Academy Scarab Beetle Series.
Worse than a thief, is a liar. 

Kayli Winchester can finally let go of her thieving past and for once walk on the right side of the law. She's had enough of the hustle and is determined to become the good girl.

But her brother, Wil, is still missing. On the hunt for him, she discovers something worse than a missing sibling: Marc, Raven, Axel, Corey and Brandon. These aren't just scoundrels with hearts of gold. They're flat out criminals. But they're criminals who need her.

In a ruse to draw them away from her brother and learn more about this so-called Academy, Kayli joins them on a mission to Florida in search of a missing little girl. Kayli will do anything to make sure her brother is safe. She'll find their leader. She'll discover their intentions. She'll infiltrate their ranks. And if they try to threaten her brother or herself, she'll burn them all. 

But when these five hot Academy teammates all contend for her heart, her resistance starts to crumble. 


Maybe she wasn't meant to be the good girl, anyway.

*There will be some mild spoilers*

It's difficult for me not to compare this series with the Ghost Bird series since it is in the same "Academy" world.
So warning: I will be mentioning the GB series as well.

I love, love, love the Ghost bird series and although the slow progression between Sang and the boys often times drives me mad, there was something about the beauty in it as well. Sang is naive and innocent to the world so the relationship that progresses with them seems natural, from a friends and family feel to the budding feelings of romance. Even though it's outside of society's norm to have polyamorous relationship, somehow it is written in a way where you feel it could be a very natural progression with this particular group.

However, with the Scarab Beetle series it feels to me unnatural and disjointed, maybe because Kayli is more aware of the world around her and she hasn't been forced to be a hermit as Sang was, and although she is broken, she still has fostered relationships with others even if they are skewed and unhealthy. Therefore, I find her "roaming lips" and confusing romantic feelings more annoying then anything else. Her turbulent emotions regarding the guys and Blake drive me insane and make me want to yell at her to knock it off. lol I understand she is confused, I also understand she has never had a real loving and healthy relationship with anyone except maybe her brother, but I feel that she is playing with the guys more then anything else, even if that is not her desired intention.

Next, she's bratty, her emotions at times volatile, I can easily imagine her loyalties being swayed in the future. She seems reckless and in some ways more immature then Sang, isn't Kayli suppose to be in her late teens early 20's? I'm not saying she will be this way, but this is my first impression and I find this annoying as well.

Although Kayli can be very bright and intuitive with cases they are working on
she is totally clueless when it comes to whether to trust the Academy boys or not. Now, it's understandable that she would be wary since most people have lied to her in her life, and to be fair she has only known these boys a short time and it's a very extraordinary situation. Still, she immediately latched on to Blake's cautionary evidence of the guys which casted conspiracy theories about them and the Academy in her head which made her fraught with even more doubts. Which makes me laugh considering Blake tried to poison a whole town in the last book, which if I were Kayli, I would be more leery of trusting Blake then the Academy boys.

There is more action in this book which I find to be both positive and negative, positive because they are not just sitting around painting toenails or worrying whether or not Kayli ate or took her vitamins. Negative because you don't get the relationship building as you do with the Ghost Bird series. This is totally just my own personal opinion and preference though.

What I did enjoy where the Academy guys, they are wonderful through and through, similar to the guys in the GB series but also uniquely their own as well. Personally, my favorite is Corey. :-D He's a sweetheart and reminds me a lot of Victor. Still not sure what is up with Kevin, but I'm sure later on in the series we will get to know him. I'm also not sure about Blake, and how he will play into all of this as well, but I'm sure we will find out. Still no closer to what Will is up too, but I'm guessing he has his fingers in the Academy pot somewhere. Although, I rated this low I still enjoyed the writing and I probably will give the next book one more try, so far the last book and this book are just not what I had hoped for.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 High School Drama: we all like to indulge 20 août 2014
Par MadeInVT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm not going to rehash the plot here, read the book description or many of the other reviews, you'll get the general idea. I will say that I was hoping to like this series more than The Academy series, mainly because the h in this one is older and the group of guys she's going to have (eventual) happy polyamory with is smaller. That being said, I found the plot in this book very plodding. I'm not a fan of the weird love triangle between h, the academy boys and the idiot/liar rich guy. This girl gets led around by her hormones more than I can stomach. There is no character growth at all and h seems less self-aware than in the last installment. The timeline here is going the way of the first Academy series which is on book 7 and has only covered about 2 months chronologically. So be aware that this is just Day of Our Lives in literary format. h will be battered about by the dramatic winds of fate and H(s) will save her. I've stopped reading at about 30%, since I tend to gravitate towards books that have a point. This is high school drama that feels really immediate and life altering but, with time and perspective, is just worth an eye roll. That's what I'm doing now, rolling my eyes and moving on while thanking god I'm no longer a teenager.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Loads of action but not enough of relationship building. 15 août 2014
Par Lucy @ Rain & Cupcakes book blog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Don't get me wrong, I love books by C.L. Stone, her books are my guilty pleasure and I often giggle while I read them. But there were something in Liar that didn't set well with me, and I am not entirely sure how I feel about Kayli yet.

Follow by Theif, Kayli finally learned the crude truth from his father, meanwhile her younger bother Will's missing may turn out to be intentional. Despite having the Academy guys' supports and helps, Kayli still can't quite trust the guys yet. When she discovered the boys have files on both her and Will, she started to investigate about who the boys are and what the Academy is really about. But what she found out may confused her furthermore about the guys.

Kayli is uncertain and still acting rather reckless in this book, which none of the guys can do anything about it, in fact they sort of let Kayli leads them to do whatever she wants. In some way I am happy Kayli is a dominated character, but she can be a handful sometime.

The romance in this book I thought was progress in a much faster pace than I would've like. I knew this would be a five guys one girl situation (in case you didn't know), so I've expected when Kayli start developing feeling with the guys. However, this is only the second book of the series, and Kayli and the boys hardly had a proper chance to "get to know" each other. Thus, when Kayli started to make-out with the guys, along with her "confused" inner voices and her quite frequent "weak moments", well, I just don't know how to feel about it. Not to mention the author is throwing Blake into the equation (in case you were wondering, I don't perticlar like Blake's character). I feel Kayli is taking advantages and playing with the guys, which really made Kayli look bad.

I am not sure if it's because this series is a New Adult genre, but I find the boys can be too aggressive sometime, there are one particular scene which involves Raven and Kayli that just seem unnatural and flat out weird for me. I've expected this series to be more mature and maybe steamy, but I didn't quite get the "aw" effects when the boys are showing, expressing their feeling and desire to Kayli. I think some relationship building is in need at this point.

In baffled me that Kayli would easily accept Blake's reasoning, and so-called evidents against the Academy boys. For someone who is also in the "gray" area, Kayli is surprisingly quick to judge and thinks only in black and white.

Finally we are learning something new about Will, which may explain certain situations in another series (Ghost Bird series), or not since it wasn't much.

While I enjoyed going along with the boys and Kayli on their Academy missions, there are tons actions that was quite fun to read. However, the lack of relationship building can makes the romances somewhat awkward to read. Overall, I liked Liar, but I don't love it.

Happy Read! XO

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ♠ Reverse Harem: you know you want one. ☺ 14 août 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Remember, this series is New Adult, so don't be surprised at some of the scenes. And there is NO COMPARISON to the Ghost Bird series, each series stands on its own and both are equally awesome (Why choose?). But love the cameo from Owen. Hi Mr. B!!!! (*waves frantically and blows kisses)

I loved Kayli's thoughts throughout this book, such emotional turmoil and guilt. Poor soul needs some love and affection. Her brother has intentionally run away and her father admitted to keeping government assistance money for his drinking habits, essentially forcing her to pickpocket to survive. Now she's got no home and no family, the only ones to take her in are the Academy guys who are willing help her try to locate her brother.

Then Kayli overhears an Academy conversation making her wonder why they have files on both herself and her brother Wil. This, along with Blake's suspicions spurs her into joining the guys on a mission. She intends to infiltrate the Academy and discover once and for all if they are evil, or truly reformed bad guys.

As they delve into a missing child/custody bond situation, Kayli is faced with indecision: Does she pretend to show interest in the guys to uncover the truth about The Academy? Does she leave them all and just forget about ferreting out their secrets? Run away with Blake?

Honestly, if by this point you didn't realize that this was a reverse harem story, then now you know. From the author's lips hath dripped those words. If you don't know what reverse harem is, go google it. And as for all of these guys being freakin' hot? Of course they're hot, no one would have a harem of ugly losers! But being hot is in the eye of the beholder, so what you think is good looking/attractive may not be my cup of coffee. I mean, if Sang from the Ghost Bird team saw this group of Academy guys, she'd be running towards Volto!

With the above being said, this was a fun read with a variety of characters to keep you entertained way up to 4 in the morning. ♥
