I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Excuse me while I rock in a corner waiting until book 2 comes out. While I am usually the type to wait for sequels to come out before I read, I am glad I didn't wait this time. Broken By Lies is the type of story that keeps you on edge and you will enjoy every minute of it.
After the death of her mother, Emilia leaves Arizona to find her father in Illinois. She has no money. She has nothing. Nothing but hope that her father will help her. The reunion with daddy dearest does not go as planned. She finds herself at a cheap motel, broken, lost, with nowhere to go. Until a handsome man named Alex offers her a place to stay until she gets back on her feet. Sounds strange yes? A random stranger. However Alex is pretty irresistible. Emilia sees the good in his eyes, while Alex knows the darkness in his heart. There is an undeniable attraction between these two.
Told from dual POV, Broken by Lies is a suspenseful read. While you know there are lies and secrets involved, you truly have no idea what’s to come. As Emilia and Alex fall for each other, their union is dangerous. For them both. Alex shouldn’t love anyone and he shouldn’t be loved. But with Emilia the game has changed. He FEELS for her. And it’s deep. The chemistry between these two are off the charts. This is definitely more than the typical rich guy meets poor girl. The author puts her own spin on this kind of story as Alex and Emilia have a deep connection that as a reader you will appreciate.
This was my first book by this author, and definitely not my last. Her writing style keeps you engaged the entire time. I never felt that the book lagged or got boring. If anything, it kept drawing me in even until the every end. Oh. My. That ending! It was intense and I am seriously counting down until we get the next installment.
