Artful Lies, a brand new irresistible and passionate romance from the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of the This Man series, Jodi Ellen Malpas, is coming April 30, 2020!

An irresistible connection, a desire that won't let go...

When aspiring antiques dealer Eleanor Cole is handed the chance of a lifetime to work for the Hunt Corporation, the renowned antiques dealers, she doesn't think twice. Only to discover she'll be working up close and personal with the notorious and insanely irresistible Becker Hunt. He is a man famous for getting what he wants, and Becker wants Eleanor.

But as Becker pulls her deeper into his world, she discovers there's more to him than meets the eye.

And falling for Becker goes from being foolish to dangerous

She just arrived in London.
After years of taking care of her late father's little antique shop in the country she finally wants to work in the real world of arts and antiques.
The first job interview did not go well. Thanks to this horrible - but oh-so-hot - cab-thief!

Let's hope the second interview will be better.
It's her dream job. Working in the most beautiful place with the most amazing pieces.

He's her new boss. And the cab thief.
The insta attraction between them is insane!
But Eleanor wants to concentrate on the job. It's her big dream.
Plus she's also had it with guys for a while!
And Becker .... he's not ready for anything serious either.

But the heart (and body) wants what the heart (and body) wants!




I loved reading this!
I loved the whole setting. London. The scary dark alley to get to the shop. The beauty inside of it. I just wanted to say FML - I'm taking over Eleanor's life! I have no idea about art and antiques, but I SO want to work at Hunt's! LOL!
Eleanor and Becker. Adorable how they flirt and argue and fight.
I just adored them and all the others too. I loved this story. I was right there in this story with them all. Just Beautiful. Sexy. Funny. Mysterious. Exciting. Dangerous. Sad. Heartbreaking. Amazing book!

I can't wait to see how it will all end in WICKED TRUTHS! Hurry November!!!

I also wouldn't mind if this book would show up on Netflix one day soon! ☺

ARTFUL LIES was such a beautiful & funny & adorable & sparky & sexy & antique-y love story! I just loved it! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Becker - this one is MINE!

Tiny little thing that bothered me a bit. Becker - as amazing as he is.... he was a tiny little bit too ... immature?? for my tastes. Just a bit. It was a bit too exaggerated how he dealt or not dealt with things. Even after everything he's been through. Still. He was a bit too much in some ways. But I still adored him and everything about this book!
4.9 Stars only because I don't much like a series/duet where I have to wait SO long for book #2!

ARC received for an honest review

It's been a while since I read a JEM story. And as soon as I started, I knew why I always enjoy them.

Eleanor and Becker's story made me want into their lives.  I was drawn in to their world of art and antiquities, but more than anything, I was drawn into The Haven.  I am willing, right this minute, to hop on a plane and Hunt (no pun intended) that place down!

I love the push/pull between our lovelies (even though at times Becker acted like a 5 year old who had his favourite toy taken away).

Just as I was really getting into their story and their relationship - BAM! There was something that I reallllly  wasn't expecting.  Then we were cliffied, gah!

I have an inkling of how things will turn out in the second installment, however I am looking forward to seeing how things play out.

But really, do I have to wait until November?
