Tell Me Pretty Lies Cover


Three things my mother acquired when she became engaged:

1. A brand new Tiffany’s ring.

2. A lavish home one Heartbreak Hill.

3. Three privileged stepsons.

The last thing I expected was to fall for one of them, least of all Thayer Ames.

Beautiful, brooding, and untouchable.

I knew it was a bad idea. He warned me himself.

But he was a thunderstorm, and I never could resist the rain.
It was perfectโ€ฆ
Until it wasnโ€™t.

One night was all it took for our world to crumble, leaving only secrets and lies between us.

Now, I have to face him again, but the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.

Told in dual POV Tell Me Pretty Liesย has everything that makes up a captivating new adult romance for me. Taboo-ish stepbrother romance, enemies to lovers, second chance romance, heartbreak, longing, suspense, secrets, mystery, angst, and a whole lot of steam. Now although Iย LOVEย bully romances, I wouldn’t necessarily call this one a bully romance, most definitely a friend’s to lovers – enemies to lovers, but not quite a bully romance.

Shayne and Thayer first met when their parents became engaged. Although soon to be stepsiblings, they are drawn to one another.

Their relationship has been complicated from the very beginning but after a death in the family under circumstances shrouded in mystery, everything changes…

Their parent’s relationship fizzles out and Shayne and her Mom leave town for a little while, only to come back a few months later. But everything has changed.

The boys are looking for answers about what happened to their brother and at this point, EVERYONE’s aย suspect andย NOONEย is to be trusted.

No matter how Thayer may still feel about Shayne, he’s possessed with the need for the truth about the death of his brother and he’ll do anything he has to do to find out what happened to him…

๐Ÿ’™ (๐“—) ๐“—๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ธ: Thayer Ames is the unapproachable broody bad boy with a HUGE chip on his shoulder. He’s a bit rough around the edges but can you really blame him? He’s lost his brother and has no idea what really happened to him so he lashes out. You can’t help but feel for him. Thayer is for sure an a-hole but he’s not really a bully. I love that Tell Me Pretty Lies was told in dual POV because getting a look into Thayer’s thoughts really helped me understand him better, if it hadn’t of been, I probably would have really hated him.

โค๏ธ (๐“ฑ) ๐“—๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ธ๐“ฒ๐“ท๐“ฎ: Shayne Courtland. My feelings are a bit conflicted when it comes to Shayne. There were times that she was a spitfire and she would give as good as she got. But then there were others that she was a bit of a pushover. I like a heroine that although being bullied will stand up for herself and not stop. That wasn’t the case with Shayne. Maybe it was because of how much she loved Thayer, but all the boy had to do was give her a “look” and she was putty in his hands.

But again, it’s because he’s TRYING to push her away/hurt her. If you would like to know more about what those subjects are, feel free to DM me!

Tell Me Pretty Lies would have been a six-star read for me but the ending (the mystery around Danny’s death) was a little of a let down for me. Maybe it’s just my dark mind but I would have liked a bit of a more sinister ending to that situation… Plus the ending all together felt a bit rushed.

If you like your new adult reads with a touch of forbidden and a bit of angst and suspense, then I highly recommend checking out Tell Me Pretty Lies.
