A Beautiful Lie

A Beautiful Lie

T.E Sivec

He saw her first, but his friend made the move.

She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.

They love, they crave, they lie.

Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other's joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.

When one of the friend's life is tragically cut short, it's up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth - no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.

Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.

What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie?

“But if you were given the chance to go back, to tell the truth instead of lie to save someone’s life and their feelings... would you?”  

Story follows two people, who just lost a person that was both dear to them. Mixed in with some military and a whole lot of mystery and backstabbing along with sweet but intense loving moments, I was hooked from the beginning. I like my men in the military, says a lot about a man. But ... then it all fell apart.

This book had so much potential!! And I'm sure I'm one of the few who didn't fall in love with this book but I cant. I just cant say that I loved it. The story was great, I like the mystery surrounding Annabelle and Garrett but it just all fell short to me. There was sooo much repeating of stuff that you could literally skip multiple paragraphs and not miss anything. This wasn't a beginning thing, it happened all throughout the book and it got annoying.
“If you were mine, I would never be able to walk away from you. If you were mine, I'd worship every inch of your body with my hands, lips, and tongue. If you were mine, I wouldn’t be able to stand in the same room as you without running my hands over your skin and tasting your lips. If you were mine…”  

I don't want people to shy away from this book though because the plot is what kept me reading. I wanted to know what was going to happen to them. I wanted to see who the bad guy was and who was really going to end up happy in the end. This wasn't so much of a disappointment even thought you could see just about everything that was going to happen. There were a couple plot twists that I was like "Whoa Hold UP!" .. and then others were like "Freaking saw that coming a mile away!"
“You hate birthdays yet pee your pants over presents. There is clearly something wrong with you," Garrett joked.”

Over all Id recommend this book to anyone who will sit down and read any book no matter the content. If you got time to spare then go right ahead, it is a good book that I'm sure most everyone will enjoy. Just unfortunately just not me *Sad Face*
