#1 LIE by T. Gephart (#1 Series, #4)
Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all.
While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.
No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery.
Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution.
Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite.
Sexy, funny and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling—he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available.
All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him.
It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.
Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.
Jessica Dawson committed the ultimate sin. She lied to her dear sweet old Granny on her deathbed. You see, Jessica was the last of the grandkids who was not married or had a significant other. All her granny wanted was for Jessica to find a nice man who would love her unconditionally. Wanting to make her gran happy before she took her last breath, Jess lied through her teeth about the wonderful man she was dating and the whirlwind relationship they had. Who knew her gran would do a complete three sixty and recover. Guess Jesus needed gran to be around for just a while longer. Jess, well, she was surely going to hell for lying. To top it all off, now her gran and the rest of her family want to meet Jess’ new boyfriend while she attends her cousins wedding back home in Louisiana. What is a girl to do in a situation like this? Obviously NOT tell her family she was a liar. That would be a total disaster.
Jess decides to hire a fake boyfriend, one who is a great actor and pull off the part. Who better to ask than a real actor, Dave Larsson. They got along well and Dave was always nice to her, not like some actors she worked with as an assistant to one of the top agents in town. Plus dave was super hot and would make the perfect arm candy. It’s not like she ever thought of licking said arm candy. Okay maybe she had! So what?! This was going to be strictly professional. What could possibly go wrong?
Jessica is such a fantastic heroine. She is smart, witty, and so full of life and laughter. She loves her family dearly and does not want to disappoint them which leads her to her current predicament asking Dave to be her fake boyfriend for a family wedding. You just can’t help loving Jessica right from the start. She is such a disaster, but in a good way..mostly poking fun at herself and the situations she gets herself into. As much as she didn’t want to admit how much she likes Dave, she has a hard time trying to keep their little set up professional. Dave on the other hand is just swoon worthy. The perfect book boyfriend any woman would want. He is down to earth and a straight up nice guy for being an actor. He has family values and is genuinely a great guy. The connection between Jessica and Dave is off the charts, hot and steamy. They compliment each other in so many ways which makes them even more perfect for each other.
Jessica’s family is boisterous and full of Southern charm and it was really nice to see how well Dave fit right in with her family. OMG! Granny Shelly was a riot. At 80 something yrs old she was not afraid to speak her mind or ask to see some skin…Dave’s naked chest that is! The best scene ever! I loved Jessica’s family and want them as my family. I am wondering if I could be adopted!
#1 Lie by T. Gephart is a laugh out loud Rom-Com that will leave you in stitches. The one liners thrown around on almost every single page had my dying! I could not stop myself from reading all the way through in one sitting. I pretty much ignored everyone for a few hours because I could not put this book down. The story was engaging with some of the best characters in any book I have ever read. #1 Lie is definitely a five plus star read! Although, this is my first read by T. Gephart, it certainly will not be my last.

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.
With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.
When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.
She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.
