Publisher's Summary

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, listen to Liar, the second book in The Academy Scarab Beetle Series.

Worse than a thief, is a liar.

Kayli Winchester can finally let go of her thieving past and for once walk on the right side of the law. She's had enough of the hustle and is determined to become the good girl. But her brother, Wil, is still missing.

On the hunt for him, she discovers something worse than a missing sibling: Marc, Raven, Axel, Corey and Brandon. These aren't just scoundrels with hearts of gold. They're flat-out criminals. But they're criminals who need her. In a ruse to draw them away from her brother and learn more about this so-called Academy, Kayli joins them on a mission to Florida in search of a missing little girl.

Kayli will do anything to make sure her brother is safe. She'll find their leader. She'll discover their intentions. She'll infiltrate their ranks. And if they try to threaten her brother or herself, she'll burn them all.

But when these five hot Academy teammates all contend for her heart, her resistance starts to crumble. Maybe she wasn't meant to be the good girl, anyway.

Excellent!

Really enjoyed this story, terrific plot, and the characters are fantastic. I liked the narration, but sometimes I couldn't tell which character was speaking. Especially when she used a male southern accent. But it was a minor thing. Overall it was Excellent.

Liar, the Academy,, book 2

I really like the story line. I went from book 1 into book 2. However, I'm flustered that book 2 starts with Kalie learning her brother has run away, and the book ends with him still gone. Throughout this book, she is so worried about her brother, but stays with her Academy guy friends on yet another mission in another state.
And what's with her emotions with each and every man she's with. She is way too fickle. She acts like a ping bong ball in an arkaide game. I'm getting tired of her 'immature attitude. If book 3 is much of the same in her attitude, it will be my last one. No matter how good the story line is!!

Loving this series!!

C.L. Stone just keeps getting me hooked into the Academy storylines over and over again! And Megan Tusing does a great job with all the characters.

Great series, great narration

This series (so far) really lends itself to audio and Megan Tusing's narration is excellent at bringing the characters and story to life. We get a little more Academy information, we meet Mr Blackbourn from the Ghost Bird series and see where the two series could potentially crossover. The relationships between the characters deepen and we learn more about them and Blake comes back which increases the tension between them all. The job they had to investigate was a good one as well, not a placeholder.
We also meet Fortune who is a brilliant character and wonderfully rendered by Megan.
Loved it.
