Your first MUST read of Call me a cynic, but my expectations of this book were I tried not to have any. How can you go from one literary extreme to another? So before reading A Beautiful Lie I hailed Mary, lit a candle, threw some salt, kissed a baby, and gave myself the "you will love this" pep talk. I did not love A Beautiful Lie.
I more than loved it! I fell so hard I hit something I didn't see coming. I hit something great. Sivec is able to exist on both ends of the spectrum and she does this flawlessly. The third person took some getting use to, but it won me over and I loved it. I was given insight to both Garrett and Parker in every situation. It made me feel a connect with the characters that got under my skin; it gave the book life.
I was allowed to see how their relationship developed from the very beginning, but at the same time the story progressed. It was the perfect amount of friendship, tension, passion, and love. I can not tell you how much this made me fall in love with Made me fall in love with Garrett. Garrett who instantly became one of my favorite male characters of all time. He made my vagina want to jump inside the pages! He made my heart beat faster and defined what it means to be perfect.
Everything about him was perfect. I devour Kristen Ashley books like their crack!!! I love her strong alpha characters and her extreme action packed storylines. ABL took those elements, but took it to a new level; it's own level. The intimate scenes were hot and passionate without being cheesy; there was no unrealistic during sex banter that made me cringe. Raw passion.
Of course with any book you love, you never want it to end. But at the same time, the author did a beautiful job giving me everything I needed from this book. I had closure; I was able to let it end. It stayed with me for days. It's still with me. Sivec has brought something new, something intense, something passionate, and something bad ass to the table. Intense circumstances are the best aphrodisiacs; this book was one giant aphrodisiac! This book pulled me in, took me on a ride, and made me fall in love!
Sivec is soon to become synonymous with intense passion, romance, and bad assness! Be careful when you touch this book View all 31 comments. This book blew me away, totally. I loved it. It has been lying on my kindle for a couple of months - not sure why I had not read it before this. It is a story about friendship, love, betrayal, loyalty, life, death - it has it all. But is their friendship based on truth or lies?
Two best friends fal This book blew me away, totally. Two best friends fall for the same girl. They had been through so much together, childhood, college, Navy Seal training…. Garrett and Milo are Navy Seals. Parker is a photographer. Parker and Milo are engaged. One day, Milo gets killed in action in the Dominican Republic. The death seems very suspicious and Garrett is asked to go there to check it out. The Navy photographer has been injured and cannot go on the mission Whadda ya know, guess who gets the job? Yep, Parker - as she is affectionately known.
Garrett is not happy. He has loved her for years but because of his loyalty to Milo,he has never acted on it, not even now that Milo is dead. They must pose as a married couple Let's just say that it wasn't just the temperature in the Dominican Republic that was HOT, Garrett and Parker could sure spin a hot scene once they got going.
Won't go into all the details about the rest of the book - will leave it to your goodselves to read it and judge. AND yes, happily for lil' old me they did get …. She was shy and had a smile that could light up a room. But there was something in her eyes that made me want to take away all of her pain. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't speak … I just wanted to know her. But I had a friend who had a rough life. He was always getting pushed aside and struggling to be happy.
I saw him make that beautiful girl laugh, and I knew I needed to step back. I knew I needed to let him grab onto that happiness once and for all. I stepped aside and I watched them grow together and love together and each and every moment it tore my heart in two. I wanted it to be me.
I wanted to be the one to love her. So I did. She just never knew it…. You find yourself wondering if it's just a dream and in one careless moment it will all be taken away from you And in time she knew all of her wounds would heal as long as she had Garrett to love her. And I get my Epilogue - seriously, every book should have an Epilogue …..
Garrett realised in that moment it was time to say goodbye to the past and the beautiful lies he'd told and say hello to his future. View all 66 comments. Oct 17, Christy rated it it was amazing. I am so impressed!

This book is in a whole different league! This book had a little comedy, romance and tons of action, suspense and steam! I loved it!!! But if you were given the chance to go back, to tell the truth instead of lie to save someones life and their feelings Parker and Garrett have been best friends for eight years.
They have always had feelings for each I am so impressed! They have always had feelings for each other, a spark. Parker meets Garrett and Milo her first year of college. They are best friends. Although Garrett gives her butterflies and makes her hear race, Parker is afraid to pursue anything with Garrett from the very beginning.
She ends up dating Milo, someone safe and uncomplicated. She swore she would never let someone take so much of her heart and soul that it would wither away to nothing once they were gone. She gave up on the dream of finding someone to consume her mind, body, and soul. It only ruined you in the end. It left you broken and unable to live. He was the one person that could make her change her mind about everything and it scared her to death.
Garrett loves Parker, but he never acts on it because Milo has been his best friend since he's been a kid. He has always been there for Milo to protect him and defend him. He assumes Milo and Parker are happy, good for each other, and in love. He would never interfere with his two best friends relationship. Garrett and Milo are both Navy Seals. Parker is an accomplished photographer. Parker and Milo are engaged to be married.
Then one day, Milo gets killed during a secret mission to the Dominican.

Things look suspicious so Garrett volunteers to check things out Parker goes with him. She has some secrets of her own. Garrett had no idea which Milo was the real one. Parker and Garrett discover so much about each other that they never knew. Obviously, with Milo out of the picture I fell in love with Garrett in this book! I also really like Parker a lot. She was a tough cookie and I was really shocked with what came to be with her character. I connected with both of them and loved the chemistry between them.
I was so surprised with what happened with him! Ultimate betrayal with Parker and Garrett, his only real family. I was disgusted with him. I mostly felt heartbroken for Garrett and Parker. How much of the last eight much longer for Garrett years of their lives with Milo were real and what was fake hide spoiler ] I was hooked from the beginning of this story.
I loved everything about it! I don't read a lot of third person pov's, but it was cool to see a little bit inside of everyones head. It kept me on my toes She was my wife, and I always have and always will love her. But you, my Annabelle, my daughter, YOU are the love of my life. Take a chance on this book! Some of my favorite quotes: possible spoilers I just need you to know, right here and right now, that I am in love with you, Annabelle Parker. It represented the fact that through it all, the love they shared could heal even the most severe wounds.
All of the pain, all of the longing and regrets, every single moment was worth it in the end. View all 14 comments. Dec 02, Aestas Book Blog rated it liked it. I adored the Chocolate Lovers series. And I wanted to love this book. I really, truly did. With all my heart. But… this book was not really for me in the end. I ended up sort of liking it, but really not connecting to it in any emotional way — which, to me, is a huge part of what I seek when I read a book. I should start off by saying that one of the reasons I loved the Chocolate Lovers series was not just because they were funny, but because they also had a bit of a bit of heart and I really cared for the characters.
This is a story about Navy Seals, secret missions, and the requiting of an unrequited love. When there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of their best friend Milo, its up to Garrett and Annabelle to go back to his last known location and figure out the truth behind it. But when they go undercover as a couple, how long can they hold up the pretense before their real feelings start to take over?
However, I will say that it is a happy, full 3. But also, again in the interest of honesty here, I think maybe it might the genre? I guess at the end of the day, I prefer more character driven stories where its focused more on the emotional connection with and to the characters than it is about the details of the plot. Now, this being said, the plot of this book was exciting and engaging in many places and I was interested in it. There were a few steamy scenes - especially the whole 'pool' thing!!
And I also enjoyed how the deeper they dug into the situation, the more the mystery deepened. She tells a good story and since this is her first foray into a new genre, I have no doubt that the books will just keep getting better and better. My casting: Back cover View all 29 comments.

Seriously They are Perfect!!!!!! Someone needs to get on that like right down- Mark my words. The movie would be a freakin hit! A Beautiful Lie was not what I expected. I admit I didnt do much research about it, I didnt even read other reviews I honestly just jumped head first into this 4. I honestly just jumped head first into this beautiful story. I was pleasantly surprised. I was getting into a bit of a book funk and this cured it. The heroine was a beautiful woman with spunk to match. She was fierce and powerful and could take care of herself..
You gotta love a female character that is seriously bad effin ass. And Parker was definitely that. The main man, or as I like to call him my new husband , Garrett, was the hottest thing. He was down right sexy with his love for Parker and wanting nothing more than to be with her but keeping his feelings from her because his best friend was "in love" with her. The fact that he was a military man just made him that much hotter to me.
The story was rich with action. Twists and Turns were spewing from every direction and half the time I had no idea what would happen next. I fell in love with Parker and Garrett and wanted to jump into the fighting scenes and kick some serious ass every time there was a fight!

I loved her other books. I thought it was your typical love triangle between Milo, Parker and Garrett. Re-Enactment of me reading this. At the end of the day?

I really need to start reading the samples before relying on the average review rating to buy a book: 1. One of my absolute biggest pet peeves of writing — third person omniscient.

I think I could have been okay with switching POV between sections or chapters, but not within the same scene. I found myself struggling to get through the first few chapters to even make it to the story. When he knocked on her door at seven-thirty and didn't get an answer, he knew exactly where he'd find her. As he walked off the bottom step and his casual, brown lace-up Doc Martins sunk into the sand, he smiled when he saw her. Each gentle wave that lapped up onto the shore inched its way around her body before sliding away and rushing back out to sea.
When she was working on a project, she lost all sense of time. Her current assignment was photographing sand crabs: a freelance piece for National Geographic. Probably not very exciting to some, but it was everything to her. She loved the peacefulness of nature, and having a camera in her hand no matter where she was excited her beyond belief. Holding that small piece of metal in her hand transported her to another time and another place.

It made all of her cares disappear so her only concern or worry was for the subject on the other end of her lens. This was who she was. And it made him respect her even more. The push and pull of the water and the click of her camera echoed along the beach as he made his way across the sand to her. When he was a few feet away, he stood with his hands in his pockets, not wanting to disturb her. He liked watching her work. Every time he saw her with that camera in her hands, his heart swelled with pride at how talented she was.
And as each wave of water washed over her body, he refused to dwell on the other parts of him that swelled at that moment. Or ever. She was one of the best freelance photographers in the country, and over the years she had her photographs featured in hundreds of magazines in the U. None of those accomplishments were what endeared Parker to him, however. He never understood why she insisted on using an alias in print instead of her real name, Annabelle Parker.
He was proud of her and thought she should be shouting her accomplishments from the rooftops. Where most photographers went with the times and switched to digital, she stayed true to herself and continued to use a film camera and develop the pictures herself. It made her a huge commodity in the photography world because she was able to play with her photos and make them into masterpieces in her dark room instead of sending them off to a lab and entrusting her work to strangers.
She was proud that her pictures were one hundred percent her creations, and it showed in each and every amazing image she captured. Being able to take your photos through every part of the process, from conception to watching them come to life in the trays of chemicals under the haze of the red safe light, forced you to look at your work under a microscope, literally, and learn how to best tell a story without words. She clicked a few more pictures and then lifted the camera above her head so he could take it from her.
Once it was secured in his hands, she placed both of hers in the wet sand and pushed herself up just as another small wave washed up around her feet.
She brushed her hands together a few times to get some of the sand off and then looked up into his face. She could tell he was irritated with her. One of his eyebrows was raised as if he were waiting for an explanation. You knew I had to finish these photos before we went to dinner.
