Meet Lila & Blake in this unexpected love story!
LIES UNSPOKEN IS LIVE!
I tried hard not to fall for the bad guy.
My new roommate, Blake, is a jerk—an unemployed artist with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t stand him unless his hands are on me. He makes me desperate for him, and everything he makes me feel.
And then there’s my new boss, Pierce–successful, charming, and extremely good-looking. He goes after what he wants, but what does he see in me?
I try to stay away, but I end up in the arms of exactly who I was hiding from. And when I find out what’s being hidden from me, my heart twists in ways it never should.
I thought I knew him.
The way he kissed me.
The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin.
I thought it meant something, but as it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.

5 amazing and heartbreaking stars!!!
WTF just happened?? I am heartbroken!!! I would call this story a roller coaster, but I can’t! There were not enough ups for that. I feel like my heart was broken over and over and over. Wow, this was one heck of a read. I really didn’t understand what I was getting myself into with this one. Heartbreak and a sleepless night were not on my agenda…till I started Lies Unspoken.
“I want to hate him, but my body is drawn to him like a magnet.”
Lies Unspoken is Lila’s story. She up and moves to get away from an ex that hurt her, only to unexpectedly run right into the arms of two men who also have the potential to hurt her just as much. Blake Stone and Pierce Stanley are two eye-catching men that can have any woman they want, but both want her. And having them both interested in Lila at the same time is a disaster waiting to happen. Too many secrets and too much hurt!! Oh, and don’t forget all the HOT and steamy sex scenes 😉
“This whole city and the men in it are throwing me for a loop.”
I truly didn’t expect the twists and turns that this story took me on. My heart ached for all the characters. But, that ending!!! It broke me!!! This story had me asking WHY?!?!? But, all this emotion I am explaining, it made this story awesome!! I wouldn’t have loved it so much if it hadn’t had my emotions so whacked out.
This author is not new to me, and this is not my first 5 star review for one of her books. She has a lifelong fan in me, and I can’t wait for the next installment of this series.
Without warning, his lips crash into mine. At first I fight it, pushing hard against his chest, but he tastes like whiskey. Woodsy and smoky like a campfire, matching the intensity of his kiss. He melts away my anger with his mouth, leaving days’ worth of unrealized sexual tension in its wake.
I lean into him.
My knees go weak.
He isn’t something I wanted. Not three weeks ago. Not even three minutes ago. But as his hands slide up my back, coming up to circle my neck, I’m drowning in want. He tilts my head back to allow himself better access. My tongue tangles with his. Never in a million years did I envision this … how much pleasure I would feel from a simple touch. I guess sometimes we have to have our desires at our fingertips to realize their true depth.
When his lips leave mine, his hands stay. We went from one extreme to another so quickly … I’m not sure what will happen when he pushes the brakes. His face is close, like he wants to kiss me again, but his hands fall away from me instead.
One step back.
Another step. His back hits my bedroom wall.
“Do that again.”
As he exits the room, I’m left wondering what the heck just happened. That kiss took all the cells in my brain and tangled them. I never imagined this, and I hate to admit it but I liked it.
