Only one man knows the truth about the dark secret Sara is hiding, the only man she’s ever loved and can never have.
But Sara’s world of lies starts to unravel the day sexy British heir William “Liam” Knight storms into her life. He’s seeking revenge and answers for past betrayals, and will use anyone he can to get them.
An unlikely friendship between two lonely hearts seeking solace turns into love that will shatter a lifetime of lies, span two continents, and leave Sara facing the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help her God.
LIES IN REWIND is the second book in the Audio Fools series that follows the love lives of two best friends, Emily and Sara. This novel could be enjoyed as a standalone, however, it is highly recommended to first read and meet these characters in LOVE IN REWIND (Book I) prior to reading this book, for a more complete experience.
I Choose Me...
I really enjoyed this book!! It’s mostly told from Sara’s perspective who is Emily Bruel’s best friend from the first book in the Audio Fools series (Love in Rewind). You get to read about what Sara was going through while her best friend was falling in love. I think it’s easy to make assumptions about Sara’s character when your reading Love in Rewind. But what I loved the most about Lies in Rewind was that all of your expectations and assumptions are completely shattered.
The story starts right off with Sara having a really bad couple of days. But ironically it’s during this struggle that she realizes that the choices she has made in her life have not turned out the way she thought they would. I think it’s a pivotal point in Sara’s life where she is forced to reflect upon the decisions and lies of her past in order to find happiness in her future. Because ultimately the lies that she has told herself and the people around her were hurting her the most in the end.
I think that’s something many of us can relate to. Doing and saying things because that’s what other people expect from us. Sara is by far one of my favorite characters ever. She’s not perfect, she makes mistakes, she’s strong yet vulnerable. But perhaps the most admirable quality in Sara is her fierce protectiveness of the people she loves. Sara just keeps it real and I really admire that. There is one quote in particular that I think sums up Sara’s journey in this book. “I choose me. I choose to love me and make sure that I will be good to me.” I love this quote because I feel like this is the moment that Sara realizes that it’s okay to love and respect herself despite the mistakes she might have made in the past. It’s what you do with the consequences of those mistakes that defines you.
I loved that the 80’s songs are taken to a whole other level in this book. They blend perfectly with the story making it an unforgettable read. If you’re like me and don’t know half the songs referenced in the book, don’t worry! You will be able to click on them in the kindle version so you can listen to them (Pretty cool right!!!). I loved that this series uses songs instead of words sometimes to express feelings. I think we truly see the power of communicating with music in the audio fools books. If you really think about it music is just another way to express yourself and your feelings.
So much love for Lies in Rewind and Tali's writing!
First things first, Lies in Rewind can be read as a standalone but do yourself a favor and read Love in Rewind first. I really think you need to know Emily and Louis' story before you get into Sara and William's book.
With that being said, I absolutely adored Lies in Rewind. We meet Sara in Emily's book. They've been best friends since they were in diapers. Sara is Emily's adventuresome other half. She's experienced, outgoing and knows everything about everyone; or so we think.
Sara's life is basically one big lie. She has dug herself so deep she doesn't know how to get out of it. She meets William (Liam) after trying to get to the bottom of his relationship or lack thereof with Emily and ends up trusting him with her most private truths. Her best friend doesn't even know the extent of her relationship with Jeffrey and they've known each other their entire lives.
Liam is out to avenge his sisters death and ruin Louis Bruel's life but he doesn't really know the entire side to his sisters story. He knows what she wrote and that is all. While trying to figure out his sisters story, he becomes entranced with Sara and really doesn't want to let her go.
A few things really intrigued me about Lies in Rewind. One, I am a sucker for a super steamy book. Love in Rewind gave me that. Lies in Rewind is basically the opposite. There are steamy scenes but no actual sex until the epilogue. Tali knows how to write a hot sex scene and she doesn't disappoint with it. Two, the books timeline. Sara rewinds her tale of fifteen years with her lover Jeffrey but ninety-five percent of this book takes place in one day. I loved that! It's crazy to think of all of that information being divulged in such a short amount of time. Three, THE MUSIC! Tali nailed the 80's song choices for each scene in this book; it is epic!
Anyway, I'm a true believer in Tali Alexander's writing. She deserves the recognition she receives and I can see her having a bright future in this industry with her Audio Fools series.
Another amazing book from Tali !!
I loved Love in Rewind and could not wait for this book !! Sara is smart , Hot and has a past full of lies until she meets the British swoon worthy Liam and well the chemistry is just undeniable. Two completely different people both dealing with their own pasts . I knew where I wanted this book to go once I was a few chapters in and I was not disappointed . It's so Hot , so full of emotion and literally left me wanting more !! I also love seeing more of Louis and Emily ...
