LIE - NOUN
AN INTENTIONALLY FALSE STATEMENT
Some days I didn't know where the lies finished and the truth began.
It happened with one innocent lie and before I knew it I'd created a whole web of lies.
Nobody likes a liar.
What if you had to lie? To protect yourself and your child?
If those lies were revealed, I would be a shell of my former self.
Fractured into a thousand tiny pieces.
I just hoped I could be put back together.
This book contains scenes that readers might get upset about. This book does have a cliffhanger.
Oh wow! I was absolutely glued to this book and didn't want to put it down.
I'm also kicking myself for not reading it was a cliffhanger but going to jump straight into book 2, so all good.
This is one series I can see myself getting addicted to, I loved the guys at the security firm, including Kitty who is like one of the guys.
Fractured Lies is about Kaylee and is told in her pov.
Kailee was pregnant at a young age and her partner stayed with her instead of going to college and following his dreams. Following the birth of her son Kaylee's life changed not only was she a young mother but now in an abusive controlling relationship with no help and all alone hiding her bruises from her only friend and an elderly neighbour.
Kailee has a brother but hasn't seen him for years, his job is top secret and Kaylee gets an occasional call.
On one of her calls, Kaylee's brother not knowing about her abusive relationship persuades her to look for a job now her son is in school, get out of the house, meet people.
Kaylee's brother tells Kaylee to see his friends at a security firm and they would give her a job. This is a turning point for Kaylee who hasn't been allowed to socialise and after the getting the job she begins to go to it in secret from her partner after her school run.
Lies to protect herself.
There's instant connection with TY who runs the security firm and Kaylee begins to feel safe around them all at the firm as the story progresses. Kaylee lies about her bruises until she has no option to come clean after a near-fatal incident with her drunken abusive partner.
I loved the plot with its danger, angst and intense moments.
I felt like screaming when it finished with a cliffhanger, Ty and Kaylee were just getting there and I'm completely invested in their relationship at this point.
Fractured Lies wasn't as hot as I like, there are no descriptive sex scenes but it may get there in the next book.
Available in KU. Told in the first person. Part of a series. Addictive.

Sometimes the most beautiful souls are the most broken.Protect.
From the minute I met her, I wanted to offer my protection.
I wanted her to be mine but didn’t have anything of value to offer. Just my jaded heart, broken soul, and undying love.
I gave up my pride, my hostility, and my heart to make her happy.
Fuck the consequences, I would’ve given up anything, even my life, to keep her safe.
Both our lives were soaked in tragedy from day one.
I ignored the people who warned me he was dead inside.
Everyone said he was bad, violent, and would drag me down.
They were wrong. He was as broken as I was.
Together, we’d heal our hearts and stitch together our souls.
"Everyone's a little broken, don't you think? Around you I feel whole"
Fifty chapters, and they flew by. I love Autumn Jones lake's MC series and couldn't wait to see what she had written for the cards of love collection and Ile be honest with it being a collection of books by different authors I expected something like a sample of her writing, a novella type read like you get in anthologies.
What I got was an absolutely breathtaking journey of young love with hopes and dreams.
Roman and Juliet are two 17 year old's who have already suffered enough hardship and heartache in their life. Juliet is in the care of her Uncle and aunt after losing her parents and Roman has been passed around from one foster home to another.
Romans first day at school turns out to also be the first day of a new life with new beginnings, hopes and promises when he meets Juliet and is instantly infatuated with her.
"I loved the way her name felt rolling off my tongue.
She didn't jerk her hand away, and held my gaze.
I made up my mind right then and there.
I was going to marry this girl".
Knight of swords is a journey from teenage life and love into adulthood and all the ups and downs they face together, it also tells of how Roman ventured into the MC world but it isn't an MC read. Knight Of swords is the story of two teenagers who find each other when they needed someone in their lives to love and care for them even if they didn't know it at the time.
Together, we'd heal our heart's and stitch together our souls.
I was completely captivate by Roman and Juliet's story, I really like the journey with these kind of books, teenagers who fall in love and venture into adult life together.
Not only did Autumn Jones lake give me a new favourite couple but she exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be reading more books in this collection by different authors.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea. Can be read as a standalone.

There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those... I mean these... “knock me up.”
This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming—and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.
I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.
There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date—“your place or mine?”
When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place—as well as any position—I can’t refuse. Besides, I've got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.
There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except... what if I do?
Note: Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, naughty jokes and a hot, swoon-worthy hero you will fall madly in love with.
Oh boy, this is one sexy and sizzling read.
Nicole is at her time in her life where the clock is ticking, she hasn't found the right man to settle down with and wants a baby. After pouring through endless donors and still not finding the man who could give her a child, like a light bulb Nicole thinks of her co-worker Ryder. Ryder is sexy, a commitment phoebe after being burned in a marriage and he ticks every one of Nicole's box's.
I loved it! not only is this book sexy, fun and has great characters, I listened to this on audio and topped with Sebastian York's sexy voice you can't help but swoon time and time again over Ryder.
Ryder is the perfect candidate but will being co-workers in the radio station be a problem? I mean Ryder has one job, granted he has to do it multiple times, he's supposed to knock her up and then that's it but oh the journey to unexpected love is so exciting.
Knocked up is a sizzler of a read with great characters and leads to a heartwarming hea.
Recommended friends to lovers romance with no angst, told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.
THE KNOCKED UP PLAN? One-click for pure reading pleasure!

The only problem is we have silently vowed to hate one another for the rest of our lives. In order to get Tucker to help me—I have to seduce him.
Hell yes! I’m the CEO of CMI Consulting. If I set my mind to something, I make it happen.
Charleston Monroe is playing me for a fool. If she believes for one second I’m going to let her walk into my life to help her save the very job that ripped her away from me, she’s got another thing coming.
She thinks she can seduce me, and I let her believe she can. After all, I’m getting what I’ve always wanted.
This story contains crazy hot sex, and one shaved pussy.
Seduced me is everything you could wish for in a romance.
I loved it, I even got giddy at times, the story was that angsty and exciting and oh boy were the sex scenes sizzling hot!!.
This isn't an office romance, far from it, Charleston Monroe is put in an awkward position following the death of her father and she has to find a man to marry, and who better than her first love Tucker Middleton, only problem is, he now hates her after a one night stand years ago were she left him high and dry with only a note on the pillow, so yes, the guy is bitter, but desperate times, Charlie could lose her fathers company, so it's time to seduce the man, and game on for both of them.
Seduce me is an exciting enemies to lovers and second chance romance that I could not put down and I highly recommend it.
Great characters, great plot, brilliantly written by Kelly Elliott with an excellent balance throughout, never a dull moment, I was flipping the pages eagerly to see how everything would go, what would happen next..
I would definitely read more in this series the secondary characters also caught my interest.
I don't want to add spoilers but I will say I recommend you buy it, dive in, read it and enjoy.
