Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.
But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.
Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.
Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…

Book Review: 5 stars
I knew I’d love this book since I saw the title: Cheater. My weakness are the reformed book boyfriends, and Lucas Thorn—yes, I have to say his full name because I’m under his spell—is definitely a reformed manwhore who only had to find the right girl to stop his whoryness.
Lucas Thorn was handsome, successful, charming and happy with his harem of seven women all aware of the day of the week they could have a piece of his sexy body. His life was perfect, until his new intern stumble back in his life. Avery Black was the younger of the Black sisters, the same sisters who might have ruined Lucas’s life, and his family’s, four years ago. Or was he who has ruined their lives?
Avery was a 22 year old young woman, food enthusiast and full of energy, ready to own the world, but she needed to complete an internship in order to do so. For her surprise, her new boss was Voldemort—he who must not be named—the devil himself, Lucas THORN, the guy who broke her sister’s heart by cheating on her one day before their wedding.
But that wasn’t the truth. Kind of. There was more to that incident than what you are just thinking about, or more than what I’m saying in this review. There was a reason for Lucas’ behavior on the night before his wedding day. There was a reason why Avery hated him so much. There was a reason why she wanted to kill him so much—It was so entertaining to read every crazy scenario she created in order to kill him, imagine 99 ways to die, but 99 ways to kill Lucas Thorn. Super hilarious—and of course, there was a reason why destiny brought them back together after four years of the incident.
What comes next was totally unexpected. I never imagined the twist of events in this book, or even what really happened in the past, and I LOVED it so much. It was hilarious and sexy and romantic. It was crazy and had me laughing out loud—the doctor’s appointment embarrassments were the best—and then sighing of love for Lucas and his crazy behavior.
I highly recommend Cheater. It has the best of Rachel Van Dyken Rom-Com Style, one awesome reformed former manwhore book boyfriend to add to your collection—Lucas is def in mine now—a beautiful, energetic and crazy Avery and a great story that will have you glued to the book, just like it had me too.
The last thing I have to say is that this book is not about cheating, doesn’t commend it or approve of it, but it does have a cheating character, because I have to say this: Lucas Thorn was a cheating at some point of the story. Nothing bad, I promise, it was what had to be, really, I don’t approve of what he did, but there is a reason for everything.
