Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Parker S. Huntington comes an enemies-to-lovers, slow-burn romance full of revenge and a dash of fate.

"She could enjoy her pretty, perfect world a little longer. Soon enough, everything she owned would be mine."

I had a plan to escape the friend zone. Step one: sneak into Reed’s room. Step two: sleep with him.

But when the lights turned on, it wasn’t familiar blue eyes I saw. These were dark, angry, and full of demons. And they belonged to Reed’s much-older brother.

Four years later, Nash Prescott is no longer the help’s angry son. I’m no longer the town’s prized princess. At 22, I’m broke, in need of a job. At 32, he’s a billionaire, in need of revenge. Who cares if my family ruined his? Who cares if he looks at me with pure loathing? Who cares if every task he assigns me is designed to torture? I need the money. Simple as that. I’ll suffer his cruelty in silence, knowing there’s one thing he wants more than revenge. Me.

Please note: This is a full-length stand-alone novel in the Cruel Crown world.

drags on

I really enjoy this author, but this title dragged on and on. This could of easily have been told in 300 pages. There was too much filler in between. Very long and boring listen. I was not impressed !

Loved it from beginning to the end

Loved this story from beginning to the end. Fell in love with the characters. Sexy hot male versus strong but gentle female. The story line will have you hooked. A definite recommend.

Enemies-to-lovers and slow-burn romance!

This story is the first book in the Cruel Crown Series. OMG! 145,000 words/15 hrs and 46 mins, and no dull moment. This is an enemies-to-lovers, and slow-burn romance, very well written. The story is hilarious, sweet, emotional, sexy, captivating, intriguing, and beautiful. Some scenes are absolutely hilarious! The characters are wonderful. Nash is a handsome, sexy alpha man, seeking for revenge. Emery is an absolutely beautiful woman, selfless, feisty, strong, and independent. I love how their relationship evolves, after some twists and turns. The ending is beautiful. I loved seeing again Asher and Lucy from Asher Black. Desireé Ketchum and Sebastian York did a wonderful job with the narration. I love their voices together. Sebastien York is perfect as Nash. Desireé Ketchum is definitively one of my favorite narrators. I love her voice! She is perfect as Emery. Parker S. Huntington is an amazing author. Her writing is genius, and refreshing. She never disappoints. Never. Looking forward to read more books from her! If you haven't read this story or the Five Syndicates Series, give you a favor and do it! Just do it! You won't regret it.

Too long

The narrators made the story tolerable, excellent job by both. I could listen to Sebastian York non-stop. Although well written, I found the story too “Wordy” if that makes sense. The author explains every little detail of every emotion of every thought to describe the mood, but enough already, there’s no reason why this story should’ve been 15 hours long! I know a descriptive author makes for a good read/listen, so most of you might disagree with me. All due respect to the author, in the end, I would spend another credit to read their work

Magic of Her Words

Devious Lies by Parker S. Huntington is a magical listen with the vibrant imagery, unusual words, and incredible characters. I so loved Emery and Nash in this book. They had immense chemistry, great banter and surprising secrets. I was pulled into this book from the first minute. I loved the unexpected humor the author injected in the story naming one of her friends at the root. Sebastian York and Desiree' Ketchum were perfectly cast for this audiobook. I could definitely sense the age difference in characters, which only added to the book. Both narrators are spectacular, and together they are even better. Thank you Parker for including cameo appearances by some of my favorite other characters in this book too! That was an unexpected treat. The twists are unexpected and so well done. I loved this book!

I liked it!

My Spoiler-Free Review Writing Style: Dual POVs Ratings: Story- 3 stars! I love stories with flashbacks or that cover a long history in the characters' journeys both separately and / or together, but I found the time changes a little harder to follow than normal. Fortunately, this one didn't turn into a silly love triangle as I feared it might. It was a misguided revenge turned into love story done well. The secret app texting relationship was probably my favorite aspect of this story. Performance ratings for Sebastian York (aka Nash Prescott) & Desireé Ketchum (aka Emery Winthrop) - 5 stars each! These two narrators made a nice narrating duo. Overall - 4 stars! I think the story would have been even better if there had been more of Nash's POV in the earlier chapters to move the story along faster. Although it had a slow start for me, it was a good story overall with great audio performances by both narrators.

My heart kept pounding

There are no truer words than the magic ones that emery silently put out the universe, this book shows growth and hell of a lot of twists - its full, of lust, gluttony, greed, anger, violence, fraud, treachery. I loved every single word.

Emery & Nash

I have been waiting to meet Nash Prescott and the it was totally worth the wait. This book, the first in the Cruel Crown series is so good, it will keep up to finish the listen! This enemies to lovers story is not your typical listen. It's fresh, original and oh, so sexy. Emery is down and out after her father's reputation is tarnished. Now believing her trust fund is tainted, she is set on making it on her own, It's not easy, so taking a job with her best friend's brother is a last resort. When Nash realizes the daughter of the man who ruined his family's life is now working for him, the one that accidentally landed in his bed 4 years earlier, he is determined to make her life miserable. But what these two don't know is how their journey will go. Huntington is a master at suspense, intrigue and romance. There are twists and turns in this that are surprising and so well written, I just could not stop listening. Smart and sexy is how I would best describe it and some humor to lighten the mood at times that will make you spit out your drink! I am hooked again, and can't wait for more. Sebastian York and Desireé Ketchum are cast so well, you would think they actually are Nash and Em. York has that edge to his voice for this darker, alpha, full of venom when necessary and can turn the charm on in the next breath. Ketchum feels the essence of Emery, with her need to be separated from her family and find her independence. She has attitude and fiery passion flowing through her voice. This is an amazing team and makes this an amazing listen.
