I first read it in paperback, then bought Audio, reread this week and saw that I had not posted review. Since this book is listed as a new series, th..Show More »e reader could miss that this is also the (probably) last book in the series encompassing the Liars Club and the Royal Four (or the Royal Handful, as Cali calls them), as it is also the long awaited tale of Ren Porter (last seen after horrific beating/left to die/ran away from all people). Not knowing Ren's history and that of the earlier series will not harm your enjoyment of this book (the Worthingtons are a real hoot), but I suspect that readers of the earlier series will enjoy this one much more. There is more erotica in this one, but I do suspect that this is a product of publishers/promoters rather than essential to the tale. The pillow talk and mind mutterings add insight, and there is more than a hint of post-physical-damage fears and continued depression. That sounds rather maudlin, but the story carries an upbeat thread of humor and snarkiness that is characteristic of the author's works. See publisher's blurb for plot hints.
