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.
