Synopsis:

Truth: Penn Walker entered my life like a summer storm—dark, ominous, and filled with thunder.

After witnessing my husband’s murder, I didn’t have much of a heart left to offer a man.

But Penn took it all.

Every jagged shard.

Every broken bit.

Even the dirty and twisted pieces that I wish never existed.

Lie: I didn’t need him to save me.

Lie: I knew exactly who he was.

Lie: Losing him wouldn’t destroy me.

But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.


Review

This book. I don’t know where to begin with this one. There is so much that goes on in such a short period of time. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. The story doesn’t cover a large period of time once it starts you won’t be able to put the story down. There are choices that Penn makes that will make you question whether or not you want to like him (because I certainly did) but he certainly redeems himself by the end of the story.

There is a couple scenes in this story that really stand out to me. The one that stands out the most is basically the big blow out between Penn and Cora was a great read. It was filled with turmoil, drama, pain, hurt, and I love that both parties were open and honest with one another. There are times when authors rush through this part and I like that Martinez took the time to really explore the problems they have a relationship and how it effects them later on in their relationship.

I am a big fan of when books have a strong female lead and Cora fits the bill in this story. She stands up for not only herself, but also the other girls in the house. But most importantly she doesn’t back down with Penn. She just doesn’t give in to his whim and challenges him. I like when the female lead has a backbone because I find those exchanges better.

The ending is a big OMG moment. There is so much that happens so quickly that you have to make sure that you are paying attention because you will miss a detail. Martinez also makes it so that she can set up the spin off series for this one so YES there is going to be more from this world.

Review

In the first book of the duet, Cora is trying her best to keep the woman in the building alive because she is head deep in a world that is looking to swallow her whole. Penn enters her life by chance and he is looking for one thing. Revenge. But Cora is a complication that he is not ready for.

Aly Martinez knows how to spin a tale that grabs you from page one and doesn’t let you go until the end. The story has much more than a romance between Cora and Penn. It has twists and turns and a plot that has you guessing until the end. To be honest, I was more interesting in the story line and where that was taking us then the actual romance part of the story. I want to know what happened to Penn’s wife and I want to know what is going to happen when the truth finally comes out.

I’m not sure where I landed with Penn. There are times that I love. But then there are times that I don’t know if can trust him. Yes he has his own agenda. That much we see from the beginning. But Cora is a like this little doe that is going to get caught in the cross fires of this war. I am just waiting for that shoe to fall because I know it’s going to hurt like a mother.

There is a small cliffhanger at the end, but I think it’s one that you could expect so it’s not that bad.

Top 5 Books Coming Out in August

#5- From Here to You by Jamie McGuire

Out: 8/21

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23251134-from-here-to-you?from_search=true

As Darby Dixon sits in a tiny Texas church bathroom on her wedding day holding a positive pregnancy test, she realizes that of all the bad decisions she’s made in her life, marrying her abusive fiancé would be the worst. She’s never been able to stand up for herself, but she’ll sure as hell stand up for her baby. With just the cash she has on hand, she runs to get a bus ticket to the farthest place she can afford. Between her sheer grit and pageant-queen smile, she lands a job as a front desk clerk at the Colorado Springs Hotel. It’s not a glamorous life, but she and her baby are all that matters.

A former Marine, Scott “Trex” Trexler has worked in the most dangerous, corrupt, war-torn places on earth. Now he finally has a chance to return to the last place he’d felt at peace–Colorado Springs, Colorado, to take a new job with the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, a top-secret military installation buried deep within the granite.

The moment Trex walks into the inn, Darby knows he’s dangerous. There’s no way she wants to get involved with another man who seems to be keeping way too many secrets. As charming and devastatingly gorgeous as Trex is, he clearly isn’t telling her everything. But as wildfires rage on the mountain and Darby’s ex-fiancé shows he isn’t so willing to let her go, both she and Trex are soon to find out that what you don’t know absolutely can hurt you.


#4-The Prince by Jennifer Armentrout

Out: 8/14

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37531545-the-prince?from_search=true

She’s everything he wants….

Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.

She’s everything he can’t have…

Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she wants to do is help him, but he leaves her little choice. Forced to work alongside him, she begins to see the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.

She’s everything he’ll take….

But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone close to him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing between them each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be his undoing.

She’s everything he’d die for….


#3- Richer Than Sin by Meghan March

Out: 8/14

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39949010-richer-than-sin?ac=1&from_search=true

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

#2- The Truth About Lies by Aly Martinez

Out: 8/23

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37940888-the-truth-about-lies

Synopsis not yet released


#1- The Simple Wild by KA Tucker

Out: 8/7

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36373564-the-simple-wild

Calla Fletcher wasn’t even two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when Calla learns that Wren’s days may be numbered, she knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this rugged environment, Jonah—the unkempt, obnoxious, and proud Alaskan pilot who helps keep her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. Soon, she finds herself forming an unexpected bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago. It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.
