Sex, lies, and beauty aids finally earn the girl next door a little respect.

Sabrina Thompson, editor of Skin Deep Magazine’s successful Natural Beauty Secrets column, is handed the challenge of her life. Take over the Love and Sex column or lose her job.
What does a twenty-four year old virgin know about love or sex when she’s never been on a third date? To complicate matters, there’s a new guy at the helm. Her only crush’s clone is issuing orders. While his pompous and ambitious twin dries out, playboy and ne’er-do-well Trent Wellington must assume his identity and save his family’s flailing magazine. The bright spot amid staff cuts and content restructuring is the plucky editor he once made a fool of himself in front of at a family gathering. Fooling everyone isn’t easy, especially when Sabrina inspires his true self to be more than he ever has.

Years of hearing she’s too nice to date have left Sabrina’s frustration simmering. It boils over when she discovers Trent’s deceit and she vows to make him pay. Getting even has never been so much fun.

CONTENT WARNING: mature language, sexual situations

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s Review***
Need a fun romance to read this summer? Then you need to pick up this book ASAP! Deb Julienne’s book Sex, Lies and Beauty Aids is full of laughter and romance that I couldn’t put down. The main female character, Sabrina, is a 24 year old virgin who is put in charge of the new Love and Sex column. Her lack of knowledge and experience with either of those things forces Sabrina to open up to “Travis” and she finds herself looking for answers in the most unusual places. I won’t spoil where she goes or who she meets, but trust me, you will be rolling in your seats. I absolutely love Sabrina. She grows in so many ways throughout this book and you can’t help but feel her emotions. I cried when she cried, I laughed with her and I got angry when she did. By the end of the book, I wanted to high five her and say “Atta girl!” She’s such a great character.

The main male character is Trent and he’s perceived as the playboy of the family, but in reality he’s so much more. He’s loyal to his twin and his family that he will do whatever it takes to protect his brother’s secret. At the same time, he’s ridden with guilt about lying to Sabrina when he feels such a strong connection to her. Trent would do anything for her, but how can he get her to see that his feelings are real? Trent has to change all the time since he’s portraying his twin and I could feel the struggle he went through trying to be less himself and more Travis. I love him. He’s simply a fantastic male character.

Overall the book flows really well. It leaves you guessing what shenanigans will happen next. I had to know what happened next and stayed up late a few nights to finish it. There were some really funny twists that I didn’t see coming and when they got there, they were done very well. I seriously enjoyed this book and I cannot wait for more from Deb Julienne!
