CON MAN by T. Torrest
Lucas Taggart is the best con man in the business, so to speak.
A former-geek-turned-hottie, Luke is now an image consultant and life coach to the rich and privileged in New York City. His eight-week program is designed to transform ugly ducklings into swans by instilling some much-needed confidence, and hey, a makeover never hurts.
But when Ainsley Carrington signs up as a client, Luke’s world is thrown into a tailspin. Ainsley doesn’t need an image consultant; her image is already perfect just the way it is. Luke immediately finds himself grappling with his attraction to the introverted beauty as all his old insecurities come bubbling back to the surface.
The thing is, Luke doesn’t date his clients. Ever. But fighting his desire for Ainsley is proving more difficult than he ever imagined. Especially since the cocky and arrogant “confidence man” has just completely lost his cool.
***CON MAN is a romantic comedy novel intended for ages 18+ due to some offensive language and graphic sex/sexual situations.***
READ WHEN YOU’RE IN THE MOOD FOR: cocky, funny, sexy, insightful, relatable.

So I’m not even sure how to start this review. I’m very conflicted.. From reading the blurb I thought this was going to be a completely different book. From the get go I couldn’t stand Lucas. He seemed like a pompous ass. He was very unlikable for me. I also realised while reading Con Man that I prefer kick ass leading ladies and Ainsley just wasn’t this for me.
I enjoy the writing style and it flowed really well. This was also my first read from T. Torrest and although this story wasn’t for me i would give more of her work ago. Just because this wasn’t for me I feel it will be for a lot of other people. Different strokes for different folks and all that.
