The haters are out in full-force tonight.

They’re out, and they’re hating on you because you’re fly, fine, and fabulous. They can’t stand to see you just being you – because they want to be you, too. They want the clothes you’re rockin’, the moves you’re bustin’ and the attitude you’re carrying.

Yep, haters gonna hate. And in the new novel “Dirty Rotten Liar” by Noire, they’re gonna hate because there’s a big-money oil inheritance at stake.

Selah Dominion mourned the loss of her baby girl every day.

It was twenty-some years ago that little Sable Dominion was kidnapped out of her stroller on the streets of New York. Selah cried every day of those years and secretly blamed her husband, Viceroy, for the tragedy.

Viceroy Dominion, patriarch and CEO of Dominion Oil, thought he had a great marriage. He thought he was some kind of stud, that his wife had gotten over Sable’s loss and everything was cool. He thought all that, anyhow, before he went into a coma.

The truth was, Selah was a little disgusted by her husband and his lack in the sack. She’d found another lover who happened to be Viceroy’s enemy, and if Viceroy ever found out, he’d go into another coma.

As oldest son, Barron Dominion was reluctantly left in charge of the family business after his father’s hospitalization. Barron was perhaps the only one who knew what was up, and it was a load of responsibility. He wanted to do things right. His family depended on it, so that little party he went to — and the very embarrassing photos that resulted from it — yeah, that could be bad.

In the middle of everything, con-mami Mink LaRue sat with her best friend, Bunni, scheming.

At first, it wasn’t hard to convince the Dominions that Mink was Sable, all grown up. Everyone kinda believed Mink, and a share of the family fortune was almost hers. But then Dy-Nasty Jenkins showed up, living up to half her name, claiming to be Sable and shaking her ghetto booty everywhere.

Millions in Dominion money rested on a DNA test. Would a little blackmail make any difference?

For sure, “Dirty Rotten Liar” is one of the nastiest, freakiest, most four-letter-word-filled, bed-hopping novels I’ve ever read. And I loved every page.

Not one character in this book is nice.

Only one comes close to being good-hearted, but I enjoyed watching the drama as scams fly, backs are stabbed and everybody schemes their way to trouble.

This is the third book in a three-book series (so far) and while you could read it by itself, you’ll be happier if you at least grab the one previous. So go do that now … because if you love a little nastiness, “Dirty Rotten Liar” is a book you’ll hate to miss.
