"There is no doubt in my mind that this author nailed this genre! This book had it all. It was intriguing, romantic, suspenseful and not only that but this felt like more than a story, this book was like an adventure on pages and it was a journey I was on all the way!" - Totally Booked Blog
"I did not love A Beautiful Lie. Nope...I more than loved it! I fell so hard I hit something I didn't see coming. I hit something great. T.E. Sivec is able to exist on both ends of the spectrum and she does this flawlessly. " - Tough Critic Book Reviews
He saw her first, but his friend made the move.
She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.
They love, they crave, they lie.
Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other's joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.
When one of the friend's life is tragically cut short, it's up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth - no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.
Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.
What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie?
This book is difficult to rate. While the story line was interesting and captivating, the writing was very distracting. The editing, or lack there of, was horrendous and the author continually jumps back and forth between perspectives without any writing differentials between the characters. One character in particular is hard to like towards the end because of how immature the suddenly are, with no foreshadowing of this characteristic leading up to it. With all that being said, if you can look past those flaws I do think this book is worth the read.
Couldn't put the book down. Great twists and turns in the plot!
The very conjugation was so horrific, that I couldn't make it past the first few pages "had showed up" is just one of any grating instances of ignorant disregard for the English language.
