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.

**4 STAR REVIEW!**
Can I just say that?
Teresa Mummert has shocked me again. But damn this book was good in a good shock kind of way.
Delilah was so lost and heart broken. She was half the shell of what a girl should be and by rightful reason. She was dealt a shit hand in life. Be it her mother, her constantly getting bullied or the fact that she felt like no one ever wanted her. She just didn't fit in anywhere she went.
Until Brock. Brock is the wild card in this book. He is very is he real or isn't he.
I was left guessing if Lie even really ever had a Brock.
Broken & alone, Lie is drawn to Trish and her destructive behavior. Lie wants to feel and be seen. She wants someone to notice her and make her feel alive and not so alone. Someone takes notice of her and that's Abel.
I LOVED ABEL! LOVED HIM. He was just as broken as Lie but he cared. And that's what made him different than the other characters in this book. Unlike Trish, Abel cared if Lie was hurting herself or being a slut. He cared about her. He was the first one who saw who Lie was behind her mask of new hair and eye color. He saw Delilah.
The writing in this book was flawless, but then again when isn't Teresa's writing amazing. She captivated me from page one with this book. It was sad, broken, awesome, beautiful and perfect. It truly was the Perfect Lie because BOOM, happily is looking nice and then out of no where, the biggest twist you could have imagined throws you for a loop. The perfect story isn't so perfect anymore.
Out of no where, everything in this book changes. I gave this book a 4 star rating only for the simple fact that I wish we could have seen more from the big dramatic game changer. I wish we would have been able to see how the story played out a little more and how the lives of our characters were effected more.
BUT ALL IN ALL, this was an amazing book by the ever fab Teresa Mummert and if you haven't taken the time to get to know Abel and Lie, you are seriously missing out.
This book teaches you that everything is not always what it seems & to never ever judge a book or person by it's cover. You can be proven seriously wrong. BRAVO TERESA!! <3 span="">3>
"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.
