Their love led to a lie.
Their truth led to the end.
Scottish enigma Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident - and, subsequently, his job - he's finally moving forward with his life, securing a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and starting a new chapter in the city. Slowly, but surely, he's pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him.
Until he sees her.
Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much she thought she'd die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she's in London, she's ready to start over again.
Until she sees him.
Because some loves are too dangerous to ever rekindle.
And some loves are too powerful to ignore.
Can you ever have a second chance at a love that ruined you?
The Lie is a second-chance romance with a dark, forbidden twist.
This is a brave story
Natasha and Brigs story of how they come together is not easy to tell. It's a lie. To see two characters go through the emotions of remorse is told beautifully. Once again Karina Halle does again makes us fall in love with her flawed characters.
OK, If you have been reading this series than I know that you have been dying for Briggs story. I know I was. But I was in no way prepared for it, honestly. Because it was nothing like I expected. Karina Halle managed to surprise me right off the bat. There is a lot more to Briggs story than what I oringally thought and man, it was hard. Like so much harder than Lachlan’s story and I thought that was pretty darn sad. So get some tissues ready because this book starts off devsasting right off the freaking bat people!
‘I’ll never stop feeling it. The rain. The death.’
Gosh, I am really trying to write this review without giving anything way but I just want to say how much I absolutely love Briggs (professor blue eyes). His story is a tragic one but he still has so much love left to give. And on top of that he is one kinky guy, which I can totally get behind. But let me tell you who I really loved. Karina Halle has this incredible ability to write amazing heroines. For some reason, her women always really stand out to me and Natasha is among the very best. She is somehow a wonderful combination of funny, fierce, and fragile and I just absolutely adored her.
‘I drown in it. Because love shouldn’t be ignored. Or shunned. Or buried. If you’re lucky enough to feel it, you need to indulge it. Give it wings. Let it course through your heart and soul, unfiltered.’
This young and wise girl seriously won me over. There were so many great lines from her. It’s not surprising because she is the one, who after all, gives Briggs himself back. So many good lines…one more. Ha
“The human heart isn’t mean to be caged by someone who doesn’t feed it.”
This story really was an awesome one. There were tons of funny moments, sweet ones. tragic ones, and definitely sexy ones. I just loved it and for some reason I thought this might be the last in this series but I think I am wrong because we get introduced to some more relatives of these sexy Scotsmen. I am hoping we get some more stories about these new folks.
‘I don’t want to disappoint fate.’

I have no words for how much I disliked this book. And it's not about the infidelity, it about the unlikeable characters and their nonchalance.
