From International Best Selling Romance Novelist, Hope Hughes, comes a gripping, heartfelt tale of two lovers, fighting for the freedom to…
No. Scratch that. Too cheesy.
…two people, torn apart by the tumultuous tides of life, only to discover refuge in…
WTF? What does that even mean? DELETE.
…two people, confused as s**t as to where they should be and who they should love and none of this means a damn thing because it’s all lies!
I’m not Hope Hughes. I’m not some fierce woman romance machine. Hell, I’m not even a woman.
I’m a liar.
And while I refuse to believe my own BS, deceit masked in heartfelt phrases of love and devotion, I want to make her believe them. Because maybe—just maybe—if she can find the soul within my words, she’ll also be able to find the truth scribbled on my heart.
You see, I once lived for the perfect plot twist.
I just never expected to actually live it.
This is my story. Well, maybe her story. I just wish I could make it our story.
The one I’m still writing.
S.L. Jennings has once again captured me with her latest contemporary romance Ink & Lies. Ink & Lies was so cleverly written from the point view of writer, August. August always knew that he wanted to write, a deep desire for his words to touch and change lives. However the first book he wrote didn't do as well as he would have liked. Instead he became a romance writer, writing under the name of Hope Hughes, yes a woman! Although he was amazing at writing about love, too bad he didn't believe in it. Didn't believe he was destined for it, content with his flavor of the week and his platonic friendship with Fiona. Fiona though, August's best friend for the past ten years did believe in LOVE. Always looking for her HEA, her knight ready to sweep her off her feet.
Fiona's the friend that always believed in August, his biggest fan. She's his muse and he writes for her. Always there for one another through the good and the bad. That's until Fiona gets too rapped up with her new man. August witnesses his best friend changing before his eyes, doing everything to try and fit in the lifestyle of her boyfriend. Fiona feels that she is not worthy of her man, and will and does everything he tells her even when it makes her uncomfortable because she thinks he is "the one." Her HEA. Too bad August doesn't feel the same. When Fiona starts to slip away from him he realizes that he has deeper feelings for Fiona, his Fi. She is perfect just the way she is, that he has always been drawn to her but to stubborn to see it, until now. Will August finally give love a chance and reveal his true feelings? Will Fiona find her HEA? Will August finally write his epic story, as August?
I love friends to lovers romance stories, and S.L. Jennings hit it on the head! I was crying, laughing cheering, swearing, and swooning with every word. S.L. has this undeniable ability to pull you into her stories as if your living them at that moment.
I leave you with these parting words from August himself, "I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul." Ahhhhhh, just superb!
