“I really enjoyed reading this story. The secrets revealed in the end was a shock. Octavia is not looking for love. She has some issue of being committed. When she meets and falls for Damon someone from her past is not willing to let go so quick. At least that is what seems like. Overall, I would give the story 5 stars. The draw back from this book was sometimes between scenes there was no break. The scene could have Damon and Octavia talking and then in the next sentence the scene has change to Octavia and her mom. I think quotation marks could have been used better but overall the story was great. I would highly recommend reading it. I will continue to read the series. ”Taylor wrote this review Tuesday, June 4, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Mz. Robinson did her thing with this story, Octavia was a successful woman who like to have her cake and eat it to when it came to the men in he life...but little did she know that Damon Whitmore would come into her life and make her realize that he was more than what she needed....Beau was shocker, and crazy as hell...the ending was the ultimate shocker...looking forward to reading pt. 3...to see what Damon is hiding!!!”Lea Strayhorn wrote this review Saturday, February 4, 2012.

“Mz. Robinson has a new fan in me. I could not put this book down from the very first page. Octavia was some piece of work, I couldn't decide if I loved her or hated her. Damon seemed like every womans dream, and these two were hot together. Beau, all I have to say is whoa....didn't see that coming at all. This book had it all, love, sex, and definitely lies, so it truly lives up to its title. Wow what a shocking ending. This is a must read. ”krichie wrote this review Friday, December 30, 2011.

“http://www.romancenoveljunkies.com for readers.
Octavia is successful, single, and only wants sexual relationships, not emotional, with the men she’s come across. She meets Damon, who makes her rethink her rules and relationship. Octavia soon meets Beau, thus starting a downward spiral of a love triangle.
This was a very… interesting read. The series is called ‘Love, Lies & Lust’, and I think the author lived up to the title of the series. There were so many lies, I could hardly keep up. However, with saying that, it is a good thing, because it kept my interest with the different story lines the author presented to the reader.
Damon and Octavia’s relationship was good. From the moment they met, you wanted to cheer for Damon. The things he did for her was sweet and I liked it. Beau was Mr. Bad boy; he was crazy, a bit sexy, and really crazy. All the twist and turns the author created with each character was good to read and it kept my interest. When I reached the epilogue, I could not believe the ending. The ending was a complete 360 degrees to see who was behind everything.
The other characters were an added bonus. Octavia’s mother, father, and stepfather, was a soap opera drama within this book. Shontay, Octavia’s best friend and her husband, Kenny, definitely brought their own drama to the book. Now, as much as I loved this book, I couldn’t wait to finish it so I could get to Shontay and Kenny’s story. Their story looks juicy and crazy and will be starting it as soon as this posting goes up.

“What We Won't Do For Love
Octavia Ellis is a smart, attractive, and independent woman who only needs a man for one thing and that is sex. Well, that is until she meets Damon Whitmore. He changes her world by giving her more than just that. He gives her what every female wants in life - true love. He has fallen in love with her before she realizes what he truly means to her, but she has not stopped getting hers on the side. This is where Beau comes in the picture. Beau is a hardcore gangster that sees what he wants. And when he gets a little taste of Octavia, he wants all of her. But she wants nothing but sex. Octavia sees that she is in love with Damon and that he will do anything for her. So the player in her is laid to rest…but will Beau understand no means no? Will she let the demons of the past and the failing relationship of her friend, Shontay, steer her away from the love that is in front of her face? Take a ride with Damon and Octavia through the ups and downs of love.
This book was a page turner from page one. It was easy to relate to Octavia. She has the mindset of many females of this day and age. Damion, unfortunately, is like some guys that have to deal with the hurt and pain that is left by the Beaus’ of this world. This book gives females a chance to see that there are still good men out there, but we have to stop standing behind the walls of other’s hurt and pain. I feel that the author captured the true thoughts of both Octavia and Damion without prolonging issues. In other words, very short and to the point, making sure to dot all the “I”s and crossing all the “T”s.
