Tell Me Lies by Carola Lovering

4 Stars

Full Disclosure: I never read a synopsis for this before I decided I had to read it. Full Disclosure 2.0: I 100% wanted this book as soon as I saw the cover . . . but I also 100% didn’t want it because of the cover. Tell Me Lies (from the cover alone) was a story that could have either gone really well for me . . . or gone terribly bad. Luckily . . . . . 

“I know what I know. Lust and love erase ethical parameters, and that’s just the way it is.” 

Yes please. Even Mitchell could get on board with a “romance” book like this. 

If you enjoy reading the darker side of love à la The Rules of Attraction, Tell Me Lies is a book you don’t want to miss. Told in alternating chapters by Lucy and Stephen, this is the story of a clinically depressed girl who fell in love with a narcissistic sociopath. It’s not very fast paced and there’s not a whole lot of action, but somehow it was still completely un-put-down-able.

Readers will be pleased to know that the pink elephant in the room is addressed and that the author doesn’t try to play dumb when it comes to the title. . . . . 

But since I am super young and definitely not a person who has Tango in the Night on vinyl, I had a couple of different songs playing the loop in my head. Classics from The Biebs and Brit Brit . . . . 

Okay, for serious I am super old but I did totally think of those other lyrics as well. 

4 Stars because there was a lil' something something extra added (that I won't spoil here) I found to be absolutely unecessary.

Oh and NetGalley, you can go ahead and decline my pending request for this one. The pornbrarian hooked me up.
