“I was going to destroy her the same way she destroyed me, from the inside out.”
Dangerous Exes, an all-new contemporary romance in the scorching series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is coming October 30th
Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.
Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!
Actually…could it be?
Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
DANGEROUS EXES is the second book in the Liars, Inc. series. It does have characters that interconnect but it completely stands alone.
Isla is a private investigator and co-owner of Dirty Exes, a company that specializes in finding information on cheating exes. Jessie Beckett, ex-NFL player, was recently under Isla’s investigation and wrongly accused of cheating on his ex-wife. They became friends and then enemies once Jessie learned of her betrayal. Now, Jessie wants nothing more than to ruin Dirty Exes and Isla. They’re both learning, however, that there’s a thin line between love and hate!
CONFESSION: I haven’t had a chance to read the first book in this series. Shame on me because I absolutely adored the ENTIRE cast of wacky characters! Isla and Jessie were both control freaks, just in different ways. Jessie lacked any kind of color in his life, everything was in black and white and he preferred it that way since his ex-wife pretty much stripped him of his trust and confidence. Isla controlled everything in her life by using rules and lists, she desperately needed organization but loved color. You’d think these two similar people would mesh perfectly together but nope! They actually clashed like crazy until they learned to trust each other. I gotta say, I really loved these two. Their antics had me smiling and laughing!
Just a side note: Isla’s GOO-POH (great aunt) was so freaking awesome! She was hilarious but intimidating at the same time, loved her!
This one’s a real feel good story. Yes, it has a few angsty moments but nothing too crazy. And it has some super funny scenes that will bring a grin to your face. Plus, the chemistry between Jessie and Isla is off the charts hot. Overall, this turned out to be one of my favorites from RVD! Told from dual POVs with a happy ever after. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
