Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes
all rational thought.
That's why Brock and I never had a chance. I had to start my life over. College was my
chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but
one person saw through my facade.
The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I
still hadn't healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel
struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he
revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.
A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force
me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.
Teresa Mummert is a favorite author of mine because she is always pushing the envelope and delivering some of the most unexpected stories around. She isn’t afraid to dish out the angst, dial up the passion, and leave your mind reeling by the end of a book. Perfect Lie did all of this and more. Perfect Lie by Teresa Mummert is a jaw dropping, mind blowing, and plot twisting good time!
Lie (Delilah) has secrets and skeletons in the form of Brock, the guy she gave everything to only to watch it all crumble. Their relationship was intense, their love epic, but they weren’t meant to have forever. Now Lie is trying her best to start over with a clean slate in college. She just wants to fit in, or more like blend in, and be normal.
When Abel inserts himself into her life, he manages to upturn her carefully constructed façade. Their connection alternates between friendship and lust, fire and ice. With each brick in Lie’s wall that Abel breaks through, he puts two more bricks in their place.
What I loved most about this story was the absolute soul-shattering ending. Often readers can pick up on clues the author weaves throughout a novel that hint at how the story might end. This was not the case with Perfect Lie. From start to finish, secrets are kept, the air of mystery is thick, and the pages radiate with angst just waiting for the inevitable heartbreak. I was completely invested in this story and the characters. Teresa Mummert is an evil freaking genius and I don’t know if I should high five her or send her my therapy bills. I recommend reading this book a second time just to see if you pick up on little details that you may have overlooked the first time.
Perfect Lie is a story full of angst, passion, and a story line that keeps you hooked and guessing until the very end. Teresa Mummert delivers another stellar read!
"I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.
