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 i

Lisa DeJong is one of those authors that knows how to bring out emotions in me. Lies Unspoken was intense. It was captivating. It was full of angst and heartache, and it made me feel. I was a mess while reading parts of this. It was an addictive book that I couldn’t put down.

This is the hardest review I've had to write all year. Sometimes you read a book that's so magnificent, so completely perfect you literally don't have words to describe it and no matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you dig inside yourself, you can’t find the right ones.


This book incapacitated me. It pulled emotions from so deep within my body that I swear, I didn’t even know they existed. Honest to God, I had trouble seeing past the F5 tornado that churned in the base of my chest

Here are the characters (in order of appearance) at play in Lies Unspoken:

Lila Fields..typical college graduate, dumped girlfriend, pretty, naive, young, sweet, fun loving, ready to take on the adult world...and boy does she.

"I want what every woman wants . . . to feel wanted." 

Starting over in a new city after a failed relationship, Lila's creating a new life for herself. What she didn't expect was to meet two vastly different men simultaneously. One with soft and tender caresses, gentle and calming words; then his mean, angsty, brooding twin persona.

I knew it, this book will slay me. I should have known that Lisa de Jong will have my heart broken and she did it again. Have you ever experienced that moment when you found yourself enjoying the book and then you have no words to describe it because it was so amazing and you can’t find the right terms to describe it? That’s what I felt after reading this book.

Truthfully I have been trying to figure out what to say in my review. I'm not saying I didn't like the story. Because I did end up liking certain things about it. Other things I just couldn't get pass.

Thinks I didn't enjoy:

1. It took me about 40 percent to actually get attached to the story. Usually I'm pretty good at knowing I'm liking a book after 2 or 3 chapters.
2. It was hard to get attached to the main girl for some reason. She was just I don't

When love just isn’t enough – even when there are lemon drops and frozen hot chocolate thrown into the mix – it’s heartbreaking, breathtaking, and at times terribly painful. The first book in a new series with a great start. It's an exceptionally terrific read!

Yes, there’s a triangle involved – but with a definite forerunner from almost the beginning! The characters are flawed, bruised and emotionally fractured. There is a ton of painfully agonizing angst to trudge through but it’s well-defined
Donna ~ The Romance Cover
Another emotional read. Lisa De Jong really manages to captivate your attention with these characters. We have a tormented artist, a successful architect and an interior designer. This is a love triangle of sorts but with one partner chosen.

The push and pull is intense, the underlying not knowing eats away at you and the answers you want are not really revealed until near the end. Once again, I had tears (it has been such an emotional weekend of reads) and I am sucker and diving into book 2 stra

“When I fall, I fall quickly. Love doesn’t come with a parachute; I learned that the hard way.”

Lila always dreamed of one day marrying the man of her dreams. And when she met Derek in high school she thought he would be that guy. Eventually they got engaged but one day Derek decided he didn’t see Lila as his happily ever after and broke off the engagement.

“A fresh start. A new beginning. A life I’m creating for myself.”

This is the first book I've had the opportunity to read by this author. I didn't have any expectations going in. No prior readings to compare to. Nor have I even checked out other reviews that have been posted. Clean slate, as I like to say.

Surprisingly, I am giving this story 4 stars. It has two things I loathe, a cliffhanger and a whining heroine who can't make up her mind or draw a sane conclusion on her own. The second installment better conclude this story. Move on to Dana or Reece finding their love and HEA.

As most of you know, Lisa is one of my favorite romance writers. I am not a huge romance reader (yes odd considering our blog is mainly romance) but Lisa is one of the very few authors that I will read without even asking what the book is about. Her writing has always been able to be able to pull at my heart. And she does that once again with Lies Unspoken.

The last time I read a Lisa De Jong’s book, I was left devastated in a big pool of tears. Yes, her writing IS amazing. This one however, didn’t hit that kind of emotion but still it is a touchy story.

It focuses on Lila, a woman trying to move on and make something of herself. Blake, a man who thinks he’s broken beyond repair or love. And Pierce, a successful and mystery businessman who seems to have it all but there’s something missing.
