in Reading Order Guide:

I found out about this series, yesterday, by accidentally reading the blurb for the latest book that was just released (book #3). It is now a complete series (all the books are out), but *gasp* eek I shouldn’t have read that last blurb, or maybe I should have?  ;) Because OMG it totally caught my interest. Sounds angsty and tumultuous and like love-triangley perfection. So when I mentioned it, a few of our fellow readers popped out of the woodwork to tell me they loved it. And it MUST be read in order!

Lauren: The Truth in Lies Saga is a trilogy….GOTTA READ IN ORDER!!!! Girl in love (secretly) with boy but boy is dating girl’s BFF….it’s a must read!

Anne: The Truth in Lies saga sounds amazing too. I bet is very angsty with all the getting another *spoiler spoiler* thing. Right up my alley lol

MichelleS: The Truth in Lies DOES sound good. Can’t wait to read your review.

Amy: The Truth In Lies series sounds like all kinds of angsty fun!

Anne: I finished Truth in Lies and oh the feels! I can’t wait to read book 2 :) FYI its sexy but the bedroom scenes fade to black. It didn’t bother me though.

About book #1:

Life is a sequence of choices. Some are deliberate, others are forced upon you. This was a lesson that McKenzie Evans knew all too well. After the miscarriage of her son, she made the hard decision to leave her absentee boyfriend and move in with her former college roommate, Olivia Hamilton. That’s when she was introduced to Andrew Wise, a brilliant attorney, working for his family’s law firm in Sarasota, Florida.

To McKenzie, Drew became her salvation. He had a way of understanding her when no one else could. The closer they became, the more McKenzie found herself falling in love with Drew. He was everything she ever dreamed of in a man, and for the first time in her life, she felt truly alive. There was only one problem. Drew was dating Olivia.

With the help of fate and circumstance, Drew and McKenzie journey down a path of unrequited love and denied feelings. In the end, they must make a choice between their hearts or their consciences. In this one decision they discover that there’s always a glimmer of truth to a lie, that there’s a fine line between love and friendship, and sometimes you have to risk everything to gain everything.

I am reading this book right now but am not loving it as I had hoped. I think it is because I have come off such a long stretch of really excellent books including Penny Reid’s Elements of Chemistry, The Mistake, The Friend Zone, Off Base etc; the awkward phrasing, weird word choices and overall lack of editing really has made this book difficult to finish (but I will prevail!)
Here are some examples of what I am talking about so you can judge for yourself if I am too picky:
Humiliation showered me in red.

No star has ever shown (sic) as brightly as the one that dangles on your neck, because only in the black of night, can its (sic) love be seen as a beacon guiding me home.

I withered and moaned against him, as he explored my mouth.

… his lips pulled into a seductive, little smirk that incited the creases in the corners of his eyes.

“I was invited, was I not?” he snarled, shrewdly.

The water sang like a cruel siren’s song. Its (sic) body of cool water splashed up over my ankles.

Laughter tickled his tone.

All of her anger was bestowed upon Drew.

The necklace that Drew had given me was part of my autonomy now.

The idea of talking only brought pain to my chest.

I’d lost someone I loved very dearly, due to my own fault.

Drew’s tongue darted out over his ripe red lips, as a tiny chuckle slipped over them.

My coffee had begun to cool as I took another drink of the substance.
