About The Book

Devon gets caught in another gigantic lie when she tries to hide her insecurity from her boyfriend in this laugh-out-loud sequel to Devon Delaney Should Totally Know Better.

Devon Delaney cannot believe she’s lying again. But the thing is, she can’t help it! Her new boyfriend, Luke, is talking to his (gorgeous) ex-girlfriend, Bailey Barelli, every single day in mock trial. They get along great for people who are broken up, but Devon is certainly not jealous—or worried that Luke still likes Bailey as much as Bailey seems to still like him.

To prove how cool she is with everything, Devon invents an ex-boyfriend of her own: Greg. So, everything’s great because both she and Luke have exes they’re completely normal about, and Devon isn’t being clingy over her first boyfriend. What could go wrong? Devon really should’ve remembered how quickly lies spiral out of her control.

Can Devon come clean in time to keep the guy—or will she lose everything over another lie?
