The Lie

The Lie Summary

The world knows Ford Malone as the heir to a real estate fortune. 

But to me he'll always be my best friend.
The guy who saved me from my bullies back in school.
The man I've secretly loved for years.

When he needs me to be his plus one at a family event, I agree without hesitation.

Imagine my surprise when he announces our engagement.

As usual, I'll play along.

Nothing has to change except the way we behave—the way we touch—in public.

But his private touches change everything.

Soon the crush I've hidden for so long is threatening to swallow me whole.

If I tell him how I feel, it could ruin our friendship forever.

But if I don't, the lie will ruin me instead.

Book One of the Charade Series.

Great read5 star

The Lie5 star

Loved the book, the story, and the characters. I absolutely hate cliffhangers though.55


Wow!5 star

Left me on the edge of my seat! Loved that it was slightly erotic. This is this first book I read from her so I was slightly confused if I was missing pieces from her early collection. In any case, I’ll read the next two books in this series and then then back track.55


Ick2 star

The main character lets herself be walked all over, and the main dude is just kinda gross in how he takes advantage of their friendship/her love for him. I’m sure he ends up falling in love with her too, but just kinda Icked me out. Won’t be reading the rest.25

Crazy not lazy

It dragged so much in the beginning. It dragged a ton in the middle and it plain sucked at the ending. The story wasn’t even interesting! If u want to waste time reading this, it’s on you. It’s a shame I can’t get my time back!15

Captivating5 star

This is the first time I am reading this author and I was impressed how well written the story was. It was beautiful and very well written . I was hooked to it from the very beginning and didn’t want to put it down. This is a fake relationship / marriage of convenience romance. Ford & Emzee are best friends and Emzee has had a crush on him. I really liked Emzee’s character . She was genuine . This book is first book in the trilogy and it does end on a cliffhanger. I am looking forward to reading the next book . A fantastic read!55
