Summary from Goodreads:
Have you found your perfect match?
Certified fraud examiner Jessica Barlow catches liars for a living. After a sexless first year of divorce, she decides to branch out of the traditional dating scene to find romance at LoveLines, an upscale online dating service with a guaranteed success rate. But just when things get interesting, she’s assigned to snoop on the very company that might show her a good time.
Texan horse rancher Matteo Brandt is secretly the corporate owner and mastermind of LoveLines’ thirty-one point matching system. He suspects Jess might be a plant for a pending court case. She just can’t be as good as she looks. He’s determined to save both his company and his reputation-- even if it means seducing Jess himself.
Will it be all work and no play? It’s all clothes barred in this battle for truth and love.
My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this story. Liar, Liar is a sizzling read. It can be a stand-alone book, or can be read as part of the Sexy Southerners series. The story is from both of their points of view and I really liked being able to know what each of them was thinking. Everyone knows that online dating can be difficult and this story just shows that being honest up front is always the best.

Jessica Barlow is a fraud examiner who doesn't have much of a love life, so she turns to an online site called LoveLines to help. LoveLines has a guarantee that they will find a match and to date they haven't failed. That is, until a female client decided to sue them because she hasn't been successfully matched. Jessica is informed that she has to investigate the claim and coincidentally will be attending a get-together of LoveLines singles in Montana. She regretfully decides to go but knows it will be a big help into her investigation, and maybe she could find someone special along the way.

Matteo Brandt is the owner of LoveLines, and doesn't understand why his system didn't find a match for his client. Fearing what it could mean for his company, he decides to make sure Jessica finds the perfect match for her while she is here. He isn't sure if she is coming because she genuinely wants to find love, or if she has been sent to uncover fuel for the investigation.

The two hit it off and things are going really well...until the truth comes out. The deception on both parts is hurtful, but they must both go on with their lives and that includes seeing each other again in mediation for the client who is suing LoveLines. The ending really surprised me. I can't wait to read more of this series in the future as well as other titles by Julianne Floyd.
