Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes
all rational thought.
That’s why Brock and I never had a chance. I had to start my life over. College was my
chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but
one person saw through my facade.
The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I
still hadn’t healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel
struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he
revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.
A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force
me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.
“I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney’s Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn’t resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I’d like to tell you a story.

This book has it all. Simply put!
Amazing writing, a gripping storyline, an ending you just did not see coming and a swoon worthy hot guy!!
I don’t know what to say that doesn’t give the ending away and I definitely don’t want to spoil it for anyone!
Abel, in his unique way tries to say Delilah (Lie). She fights him every step of the way until she has nowhere else to turn but to look him in the eyes and face the truth to what happened in her past.
My heart ached for the relationship Lie and Brock had. For all of their flaws they were kind of perfect together. But Abel? Oh, sweet and troubled Abel! I fell hard for him! And at the end, even though my heart twisted at the outcome to their journeys in their short life to date it was a happier ending to their beginnings! Happily Ever After and then some!
Looking forward to the next instalment. Well done Teresa, another winner of a story!!
4 stars out of 5!
