Title: Perfect Lie
Author: Teresa Mummert
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance (18+)
Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes
all rational thought.
That’s why Brock and I never had a chance. I had to start my life over. College was my
chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but
one person saw through my facade.
The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I
still hadn’t healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel
struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he
revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.
A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force
me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.
Wow! Another great book from Teresa Mummert! From the very beginning I was drawn into the story. It was a serious page turner and had me reading for all I was worth to get to the next scene and in the back of my mind I was trying to figure everything out.
The dynamic between the characters is really unique in this story. There is Delilah who is emotionally damaged and is struggling to make a new life for herself. She has memories of Brock, the first boy she loved. And then there is Abel who comes into her new life and the interactions between them is passionate and volatile. They are full of witty sarcasm and banter one minute and yelling at each other the next. Brock and Abel are built slightly different and have different coloring but they both are well muscled and very sexy. All of the characters had unique personalities and I found myself feeling all kinds of emotions on their behalf.
The engaging characters, highly intriguing plot, and a little bit of mystery all came together for a fantastic book that blew me away. I found myself thinking about this book long after I finished it and to me, that is the sign of a great book. Fantastic job and a 5 out of 5 books from me!
“I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney’s Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn’t resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I’d like to tell you a story. “
