Black Truth

The lies all make sense now.

The answers I once sought are no longer a mystery … but everything I found only leads to more questions.

They say it’s better to have the cruel truth rather than a comfortable delusion. I’m not sure if I believe that anymore.

Sometimes the black truth is scarier than the white lie.

I flew through Black Truth!

It was a wonderful follow-up to White Lies! At the end of White Lies we were left with that HUGE cliffhanger so I immediately dived into Black Truth and I was not disappointed. Did I enjoy White Lies a little better? Yeah, mainly because it felt like every chapter there was a truth discovered and I was constantly shocked, I devoured all the twists and turns!

However, I still really enjoyed Black Truth and we still got some shockers in this one that left me stu

Five Amazing Stars! This book should be read after first reading White Lies in order to fully understand it. Wow I thought the first book was edge of your seat thrilling, this books continues the ride if not going beyond that. I am leaving this review spoiler free. This book continues where the first book left off with Willow's story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can't wait to see where Ms. Mayer goes next! The story was beautifully written and the characters well developed. I highly reco ...more

Holy freaking WOW!! Boy am I glad I had Black Truth at my dispense after finishing White Lies. You're going to need to dive right in! I'm going to try and keep this as spoiler free as possible but hopefully be able to gush about it as much as possible. Because it deserves that and so much more!!

So don't worry because this picks up right where White Lies ended. And every single question you had will be answered. And more. The story just continues and never ever stops! The people in this book and

WOAH! I couldn’t put this book down, I completely devoured it. Drama, mystery, romance and seat-clinging suspense, Black Truth had it all!

Willow is in danger, but she has people surrounding her who promise to keep her safe and support her. One man vows to protect her at all costs, to lay down his life for her should he ever have to. She is everything to him and he won’t stop until there is no longer a threat to her safety or her life. So as not to spoil anything, I am omitting an

The perfect epic conclusion to a wonderful series.

Mayer did a wonderful job tying up all the string from book one. The emotions from all the characters in this story story were developed so well and the depth felt between them was incredible. The characters were also very realistic and believable.

Kristin entwined suspense romance and angst in the perfect way. The gripping conclusion was a roller coaster of emotions that will take you on one intense ride fro start to finish. I cannot explain the

I think Kristin Mayer has become my new favorite Romantic Suspense author!

This was the perfect follow-up to White Lies. I went into this one not knowing what the expect with the way White Lies ended, I flipped through pages finding it very hard to put this one down. There were surprises at every turn and they were sooooo good, some definitely unexpected and some that blew your mind.

I love the Friendship that Willow and Carson have and how wonderfully Gabe and Francesca fit in. This

“Together we create the light to fight away the darkness and find our way with each other. Always and forever.”

I stayed up way too late reading this . Could not put it down .
After reading this second book I now understand why it was broken into two books . The flavor snd tone does change in this book . And I loved it .
It’s like the first book was a bunch of cluster f’s just going deeper into the darkness of “what the “ and this one is the journey back out to the light again - like willow

Talk about being left on a cliffhangers from White Lies!
From the beginning this book hand me entranced. Following this journey with Willow, we learn that Alex was the bad twin that took Gabe's place (unbeknownst to Gabe) to marry Willow.
I really refuse to give away too many pieces to this puzzle, just know that this is a seriously intricate storyline that takes you so unbelievably high highs and the deepest lows possible. I love this entire family and each character is deep and thoroughly thou

This book had so much going on. First you have to start with the man that step out of the dark hallway. Shocking doesn’t even touch it. Alex is not the man she fell in love with. He wants to ruin Willow’s life. The one that she wants to hold onto. Carson is still part of Willow’s life and wants her safe and out of all this craziness that is happening but she is so strong and well loved that she is never alone. Carson is trying to build his life with Francesca. Francesca is all that Carson can th ...more

The second book in the Twisted Fate series, Black Truth, continues where White Lies left off and did not disappoint. While we find out fairly quickly in the second book who was behind all the horrific things going on in Willow and Carson’s lives, Kristin managed to write more twists and mystery to the story that kept you on the edge of your seat, page after page. Just when you thought you had it figured out, there was a surprise literally around the corner. A five star book with a perfect ending ...more

This is the conclusion story to White Lies and it definitely does the first story justice. I don't know Mrs.Mayer was able to add even more drama and surprises to the story of Willow and Alex but she did it. And did it well. All your questions from book one are answered: who is Tack, what happened the Alex and who is after Willow? Not many books surprise me but this certainly did. There were a few twists that I didn't see coming and I love the author was able to do that. A well written dramatic ...more

The last book left in a cliffhanger, so I was happy I didn't have to wait long to jump into book 2. I loved Willow's character. She had so many things thrown at her and the people she loved most, and still maintained her good heart. Once again, there were a lot of twists and turns and secrets to figure out. It all seemed like what she thought she knew was turned on its head. I'm glad she finally found her HEA.

Black Truth is the second book in the series and opens to reveal the answers to the ultimate of cliffhangers in the White Lies ending. Kristin Mayer did an excellent job of tying all the loose threads together in this suspenseful conclusion. The secondary characters are so good in this book. The romance is swoony and hot and the unraveling of the lies makes this a hard put to put down once you start.

Willow and Gabe are soulmates with an Insta love which is too short due to Gabe’s military assignment. Meeting Willow had been fate and Gabe was prepared to return for her after his deployment but unfortunately that took a little longer than he had expected. Gabe was raised in a messed up environment with a psycho mother. The sequence of events is all part of the game....a deadly game and everyone that Willow loves is in danger and everyone is a suspect!

Black Truth is book 2 in the Twisted Fate Series. This cannot be read as stand a lone. Kristin is an amazing writer and keeps you on your feet the whole time. I was glued to this book. Kristin brings the characters together in ways you couldn't imagine. I was looking for more hot alpha scenes, but Gabe is perfect for Brooke!

Loved this conclusion to the Twisted fate series. All the characters are well written and had lots of depth. All the twists, turns and suspense of this story had me finishing this book very quickly. I liked how the author tied up all the loose ends and we got answers to all the lingering questions from both parts. A well worth it read!!! Can't wait for Trent's story.

This was even better then the first book. If you enjoy mystery and adventure you will love this book. The love story is still there and that is hot. I think the author did a great job bringing us into this story. I really felt that I could feel what the characters where going through and the author made me get invested on how it all ended up.

Well written

I wanted a little more suspense in this one like the first book. It had romance and it focused on that than the "triggers" of the first book. Well written. Likable characters. I hope Trent finds love.

Great series

This was the first series I have read from this author and its a great one. I can't wait for more to come. Willow and Gabe's story was full of emotion from suspense to love. I will definitely be checking out other books by this author I'm hooked.

This book was fun and had a strong daytime tv drama vibe which I enjoyed. It was a great continuation of the first book and explained a lot of what happened in the first. It was an entertaining read.

This book picks up right where one ended. I had an idea about what was going on with Alex/Gabe but the twist at the end of book 1 surprised me. The explanation in book 2 didn't really satisfied me but I didn't really spend too much time dwelling on it.

I had the opportunity to recite a copy for a review, and I'm so glad I did. This is the second book, and I really enjoyed this follow-up to White Lies. The twists and turns, suspense and drama just never lets up for Willow, Carson, Francesca, and Gabe! Another winner by Kristin!

There are so many twists, turns, stops, but answers are forthcoming in this end to the series. I am in love with this style of writing, well crafted, layered, characters developed, exposed, HEA is realized after danger, many anxiety ridden, sub plots. Wonderful book. Recommended!

A really good follow up to book 1! I thought the story played out really well. My only complaint is that I was hoping for a bit more from the climax. It felt a little, well, anti-climactic. Still a very enjoyable story overall!

Have you ever had vines take over your garden? A morning glory gone wild? Honeysuckle from hell that just won't leave your sunflowers alone? You have to go out and pull those vines off because they twist and bind and suffocate. Welcome to that in book form.

Warning: This is Book 2. It is a direct continuation of Book 1, White Lies. Do not read this as a stand alone.

I don't do spoilers, so it is going to be really hard to tell you about the characters without giving away the plot t
