Book summary:

"The man who saved her is also the man who destroyed her… or is he?
Seven years ago, I decided I wanted to be a fighter. Marcus Roma showed me how.

Six years ago, my parents died in a car accident. Marcus Roma picked me up off the ground and held me until I could stand on my own two feet.

Five years ago, I fell in love with him.

And then Marcus Roma disappeared. No warning. No explanation. Just gone.

Yesterday, he came back.

And now I have to decide who’s telling the truth, and who’s lying. Who wants something from me, and who wants…


If I guess wrong, I could lose everything. I need to think clearly. But Marcus makes that impossible. Marcus makes me weak. Marcus makes me want, in a way I’ve never felt before.

Marcus Roma will make me fall. The only question is—will he be there to catch me this time?"

      I'm so happy I liked this book. When girls from Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews offered me to be a part of Lie to Me book tour, I said yes without thinking. Why? Well, have you read blurb for this book? Bad boy, fighter, protector and first love. Do I even have to say more?

      To be completely honest with you, I wasn't sure about Lie to Me when I started reading it. It was too melodramatic and writing was weird with all those meaningful thoughts stuffed between stalking and deep eye gazing. But, then it got better - so much better. I'd say that the beginning is the weakest part of this book. Don't let that put you off and make you give up reading - you will miss an amazing story about redemption and love.

      What worked out for me? I loved how author decided to tell the story from present and past perspective. That way she managed to keep me glued to my e-reader to the last page because I just had to see what was that big secret. Why did Marcus go? When did they finally get together? What happened to Harlow when he left? Who is Alex? Will the y be together in the end? What happens with Dill? Chloe Cox knows how to make you intrigued.
      Harlow and Marcus are well thought characters with believable chemistry. Both of them had tough lives and they had to deal with a lot of things in their younger years than any teenager ever should. I loved how they grow and change - especially Harlow. There was one thing I didn't find quite convincing in the end - how she treats Alex in the end. There is no way that man will ever come near my family after all that. But hey, this is fantasy of some sort so anything is possible, right?

      Who should read this book? All of you who like friends to lovers stories, romance novels with some steamy scenes but also actual plot.

Lie to Me Excerpt

 I am so angry I can barely see, and I want him so badly it actually, physically hurts. Like the absence of him inside me aches.
I’m pulling at his shirt now, twisting it, and Marcus’s fingers are digging into my waist, pushing under the waistband of my shorts, almost like they have a mind of their own. They must, because Marcus himself is rock solid and rigid, his body riddled with tension, his muscles working with restraint.
“Lo,” he whispers, shaking his head.
“I don’t want to have to think about this anymore,” I say. “Please just help me to feel something else. Please.”
His thumb sweeps along the inside of my waistband, coming around the front, dipping low so that I shudder, even while the muscles in his shoulders pop and it looks like he’s struggling.
I want to scream.
I do.
I rip at his shirt; I go for the buttons on his jeans. I say, “I don’t want to be scared of being broken forever because you fucking broke me…”
I think he’s about to snap and finally take me when his hands move, lightning fast, and grab mine, pinning them to the table. Marcus is breathing heavy, his whole body hard and alive and pulsing between my legs as I sit on this stupid table, and when he looks at me, it’s with a fierce hunger.
“Not until you tell the truth,” he says. “Not until you say why.”
I know exactly what he means. He can still see through me.
“Because I hate that it’s you that does this to me,” I say. “Why does it have to be you? I hate that it’s you that makes me feel this. I hate you, Marcus, because I…”
Because I love him. But I can’t say it.
He’s leaning into me now, his head close to mine. He’s smelling me. I can feel his lips move along my jaw, my ear, my neck…
“Please don’t make me say the rest,” I say. “You already know the truth, you bastard.”
One hand moves to the back of my head, the other to my hip, and I can already feel the complete control he has over my body. Like he’s just deciding. Feeling it out, the way he does.
I hate him so much for making me love him.
“Marcus, I need you to—”
He doesn’t let me finish. With a growl, he threads his fingers through my hair and pulls my head back, his face hovering just above mine. For a beat his eyes pierce mine and I see what I feel echoed there: a wild need, a fierce, burning fever, the desperation of needing someone you can’t have.
And then when it happens, it happens all at once: his mouth crushing mine, his hand pushing into my shorts, beneath my underwear, his fingers sliding between my wet folds, and then his hand gripping me there. He stops for a moment, as though just wanting to establish ownership, and his tongue parts my lips savagely. I moan into his mouth and grapple at his shoulders, trying to get him to move, to just do it already, because I feel like I might burst, but he’s the one in control, and that drives me even higher. His other hand tightens its grip on my hair, and he takes what he wants, kissing me deeply until I yield to it, until I’m not thinking about anything at all.
