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.
4 days…..it has been 4 days since I finished this book and I don’t even want to pick anything else up. I am broken, I am ruined, and I would read it all over again. I would relive every last word of this book without a second thought. Lies Unspoken by Lisa DeJong has taken a flying leap to my Top 5 Must Reads list. She took a chance on this book and it was totally worth it….you must read it now! Honestly, why are you still here….do I even need to write this review? I don’t want to give too much away, there is so much that you need to discover and learn for yourself. Ok….I’ll give it a shot!
During this story we meet 3 main characters; Lila, Blake, and Pierce. The three come from different backgrounds and histories yet their lives have been brought together.
Lila, poor Lila….new girl in a big city, leaving behind her past. She is brave and determined to make her new life one that she can be proud of. Enter Blake, her new roommate. He’s moody, he’s an asshole, he’s an artist and he is probably one of the sexiest guys out there. Blake is an enigma that I still don’t think I have figured out.
“He’s too intense and a little rough around the edges.”
Katy Perry’s song “Hot N Cold” kept running through my head anytime Blake was around. He immediately does NOT like Lila and is a complete douchemonkey to her. Then the next minute he’s overbearing and protective of her….I had reader whiplash from it all. It just made me want more, I had to know his story.
“There’s not a whole lot in this world I care about, but every time I look in those green eyes of yours, I don’t have any control.” His lips are mere inches from mine. His hand practically burns into my cotton-covered skin. “I hate not having control.”
Then to make things more complicated we have Pierce. Sexy in a suit and successful. He has a lot in common with Lila, he is her boss after all (recipe for disaster anyone?). He can give Lila the things she needs, he WANTS to be what she needs.
Read and watch it all unravel before your eyes. I never expected the events that happened throughout Lies Unspoken. Lila’s heart and head want two different things, two different men, for many different reasons. My heart hurt for her and like I said, I’m still fucking broken, ruined, and I would do it all again.
