Give Me Something by Elizabeth Lee
Here's the deal... I learned a long time ago that sometimes you have to use what you've got to make things happen. What I happen to have is a pretty smile, long legs and the ability to make men believe anything I say. Before you get on your high horse and start judging me, can you honestly say you've never batted your lashes at some guy for a free drink at the bar? That's what I thought.
Keep that in mind as I tell you my story of how I took it one step further. My story of lies, deceit, manipulation and love. Yeah, love. Believe me, it fits. Especially, when you factor in Nick and Tucker – one had my heart and the other one wanted it all for himself. Which one? Well, I can't tell you that. It would defeat the purpose of the story. If I'm going to fill you in about me, Lila Garrison, and my life as a con artist you're going to need to know all the facts, including the ones about the two guys who made me want to give up the life of fancy clothes, expensive jewelry, fast cars and easy money. Because sometimes, one person can give you something that's more valuable than all of that.
If you're still interested, stick around. Just remember, I'm pretty good at convincing people to do what I want, so if by the end of this whole thing you feel worked over, don't say I didn't warn you.
At first I thought it would be hard to read - the real life of a con artist. And trust me, Lila didn't have any problems with tricking people into giving her things. The money was all she saw, and with Nick by her side, the two of them were able to conquer all.
we start off in collage, Lila is ready to be done with the scamming. She wants to get her life on the right track, and be with Nick - They've been friends since they were kids, learning how to work the streets at a young age, there is nothing this duo couldn't do.
Nick had one more job to pull, and that was it. But he need Lila's help.
Lila didn't want the job, but when she heard why Nick needed the money, she knew she'd do anything to get it for him.
It was at the party that Nick started the game. Lila didn't' realize why Nick kissed her like he did. She had a fantasy that Nick was really starting to realize his feelings for her, just as she felt for him.
But when Nick pulled away from the kiss, and started introducing her to his Frat brothers, things got a little strange. Especially when Tucker looked at her with those piercing blue eyes.
Tucker - sweetheart of a guy, use to getting his own way, came into a lot of money, and has had his eyes on Lila since she walked in.
Tucker and Nick were roommates, once nick explained to Lila that Tucker was the mark, it started to make since. Nick didn't do anything halfway, When he picked Tucker out for a roommate, he had started his plotting way back then.
But at the party, when Tucker's eyes met Lila's, she was drawn to him in a way she thought only Nick could draw her.
Such a cute Love Triangle this was! I loved every second. The con - Wow! It was great getting into Lila's head. She was so torn between Tucker and Nick, she really didn't' know how to pull herself out of the scam.
But once things got a little more clear for her, she was able to make her choice... But was it the right choice?? BWAHAHAHAHA!!!
