Now, she lives on her own and keeps to herself.
At nineteen, Kent Lawson’s girlfriend betrayed him, leaving him behind with a broken heart and a whole lot of mistrust in women.

When Savannah and Kent meet, they can’t stand each other.
Kent knows she’s hiding something, and he despises liars.
And Savannah has nothing but secrets.
Having read Silence by the author which I really enjoyed, I was very much looking forward to reading another of the authors books.
I have to admit I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book. Well not hate as that’s a bit of a strong word but some parts sadly I definitely didn’t enjoy as much as others.
To start with, I really liked Savannah’s character. She’s had a bad experience in her past which is gradually revealed throughout the story to the reader. I liked how she’s quite a strong character and just trying to get on with her life. I also loved Kent’s family. Not only does Savannah feel very welcome, so did I. They are a very warm and giving family and I enjoyed reading the parts of the story where they were involved in it.
Kent, I just couldn’t take to. Now we all like a brooding male lead but for me he was far to arrogant. His constant mention of the word ‘babe’ for Savannah even when he hasn’t known her long really grated on me. Even by the end where I was certain he would have won me round by then, I still didn’t feel it where his character was concerned.
I would say that the authors books certainly are more for young adults. It is a romance story but what I wasn’t expecting was the amount of sex in it. I’m in no way a prude and really feel my age after reading this one but I just found all the sex talk and scenes cringe worthy. Don’t get me wrong as I’ve read and enjoyed all of the Fifty Shades of Grey books but the sex in this book did nothing for me.
Overall Lie To Me was a good read. The actual story line itself was good and intrigued me enough to keep turning the ages. I did find it quite emotional in parts and there’s definitely a lot going for it. Sadly I didn’t love this book as much as the other book I have read by the author but having really enjoyed that one, I would certainly read more by her.
