Kayli Winchester can finally let go of her pickpocketing past and for once is walking on the right side of the law. But her brother Wil is still missing. On the hunt for him, she discovers something worse than a missing sibling: Marc, Raven, Brandon, Cory and Axel. But these aren't scoundrels with hearts of gold, they're flat out criminals, but criminals who need her. In a ruse to draw them away from her brother and learn more about The Academy where the boys all come from, Kayli joins them on a mission to Florida in search of a missing girl. Kayli will do anything to make sure her brother is safe, she'll find their leader, discover their intentions, and infiltrate their ranks. But when these five Adademy boys all contend for her heart, her resistance starts to crumble.
I had hopes for the second book in the 'Scarab Beetle' series, but 'Liar' really let me down. I really did not appreciate the constant winging and self depreciating attitude of Kayli, it was incessant and unnecessary and really annoying. Oh no, I can't differentiate my feelings between six boys, even though one is gay, and they are all such nice people even though they are all criminals who go around saving kidnapped little girls. But Marc is so beautiful! Cory is sooo nice! Raven has hawt tattoos! Brandon is a damaged soul I must be the one to save! Axel makes me feel so comforted and safe! And Blake is rich and sexy!!
But apart from all of that nonsense, there was still hardly any action or very interesting scenes, not even many plot twists. A boring and trashy novel overall, but if you're into that then this would be the perfect book!
