Two lies.
Two men who don’t share.

I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.
His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.

Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My roc

Holy angst-fest, people.

***Warning: This book is NOT a standalone and this review contains what could be considered spoilers for book one.


Moving on.

As I said in my review for book one, this series has pretty much everything I loathe...everything I usually avoid like the plague...

...Everything I usually throw back in the return pile like one of those flow-y boxy tunic things that make me look pregnant.



A love triangle of beyond epic proportions.

That said...


Picking up where 'One is a Promise' left off, 'Two is a Lie' is an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. Poor Danni is left with an impossible decision to make. Lucky enough to find two men that she loves immensely, she must now choose between them. It just isn't fair!

My heart broke for Danni, Trace and Cole. While I knew from the start that Cole's return was inevitable, I couldn't help but be angry with him at the same time. I was definitely team Trace, all the way. After all, Cole made

Holy mother of all love triangles! Pam did it again. Another book that has completely immersed me and an ending that made my jaw drop! I said it in my review of the first book, and I’ll say it again- THIS is how you do a love triangle, people! It has been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a love triangle this much, or felt this conflicted about one!

Love is a deep breath with wings. It flutters in the chest, swooping and dancing to the beat of the heart. Without it, I feel strangled and lifeless. Without them, I might never breathe again.

“Nothing good can from being with a woman who loves two men.

There’s plenty of reasons why I avoid love triangles like the plague. Number one, I don’t like the way I feel when I’m reading them and it’s not the reason you think. Sure there’s a slight amount of guilt because you know that the situation is not ideal and someone is going to get hurt but for me, this crap makes me certifiably crazy!!

Danni Angelo's life has been thrown into pure chaos. Her first love Cole Hartman shows up on her doorstep after disappearing for over four years. Losing him almost destroyed her, but years later she found love again with Trace Savoy. Trace was her second chance & supposed to be her future and her new beginning. Now that a future

4.5 Stars!


Two is a Lie opens without interruption in the timeline to a scenario that is thoroughly complex and full of emotion. With Cole’s return after four years have passed, Danni tries to reconcile the truth to accept how Cole is alive and to understand how Trace is connected to them both. For Danni, getting answers isn’t easy and finding a solution is even harder as both men are determined to fight for their chance, which leaves Danni in the position of making choice between Cole and Trace

“Love isn’t a choice.”

TWO IS A LIE is the second book in the TANGLED LIES trilogy by Pam Godwin. The story picks up where book one finishes with our female protagonist torn between the two men in her life. Men who are both close to her heart. Men whom she loves. It’s a story about second chances that can tear you apart, a web of lies, rivalry, and passion.

There’s no doubt that this story is a love triangle in the truest sense of the word. Readers may be drawn to one male character but it will p

I don’t understand the enigma of love, only that it holds me hostage, cares for and worships me, abandons and breaks me, and always lures me back for more. I’m greedy for it.

Two Men. Two of the Greatest Loves. Imperfectly Perfect. Past, present and future colliding in a war that will have no winner. Just loss, pain and the hope that love can mend all things.

The wait for book two was excruciating! I became so invested in Trace and Maddie during book one. The ups and downs of their relationship left me emotionally drained. Then wham, the surprise ending totally knocked my breath away. I've never loved a cliffhanger more. Talk about leaving readers panting for more...that's what Pam Godwin achieved.

This series is insanely addicting. It checks all my boxes: Wickedly sexy. Full of angst. Simmering jealously. Shocking twists.

Oh sweet good god in heaven. My heart hurts. Ahhhhh. That ending. The events leading up to it. *heart broken* The guy I thought I wanted just made is so I'm not sure it's feasible. The other guy isn't bad but damn, his reactions get me in the gut every time. I wanted her to just choose already but then when I thought about what choice I wanted, I was heartbroken myself.

Lordy, this second book in the Tangled Lies series brings angst front and center. Don't get me wrong, I love angst and I can deal with triangles and cheating but the indecisiveness almost killed me.

I love the drama of Cole and Trace both wanting Danni. Danni and Cole, Danni and Trace......each relationship is hot and sexy yet emotional and loving. Danni wants to start over with each and see where her heart leads her. But Danni loves two men a

Overall Opinion: I'm bummed that I didn't get emotional here. I'm hoping that the next book with tap into those emotions that everyone seemed to have but me. I did, however, like Trace more! I'm definitely team Trace right now, but who knows what will happen in the next book. I'm still feeling a little underwhelmed, but will finish this up with the last book, Three is a War...

HOLY MOLY!!!!  (ATTENTION!!!! This book is about a triangle, there is just no way around it.)

How can I adequately express my feelings for this book?


Actually that doesn't even cover it all. Reading Two is a Lie by Pam Godwin left me conflicted, raw, deeply invested, and in a state of constant apprehension. After that cliffhanger in book one, I knew that the status quo was over and done with. Whatever Cole, Danni, and Trace had once was pretty much in the p

Two is a Lie is the second book in the Tangled Lies trilogy, and Pam Godwin mic drops the hell out this turbulent story. I thought the love triangle was fairly easy to handle in the first book, but apparently that was just foreplay. Two is a Lie is like Kryptonite to angst junkies, and only three things got me through this book: ranting on social media, lots of red wine, and a bottle of Tums. True story.

Two is a Lie continues where One is a Promise end, Danni face to face with the two men who rocks her world.

Cole, a man from her past returns after over four years of absence without any specific explanation of what really happened to him.

Trace, who presently owns her heart, her second chance at love.

Both men want her. But Danni knows she can’t choose one without hurting the other. Her decision on how to deal with the situation doesn’t please me, she’s just being selfish. And her stupid rule (h

Like the cheater I am....I read some spoilers and found out who the heroine ends up with, and considering that is not who I'm shipping for, or frankly, in LOVE with, I feel a little devastated.

I'm stopping the series here, making up my own ending, and then living happily in my own delusional world.

Cole or Trace...Trace or Cole. What will Danni do?

OMG...I don't know what to say about this book! All the intensity, all the drama, all the angst was almost off the charts and I wasn't sure my little heart could take it.

And it all boils down to that little heart already picking a guy! I tried not to do it but it just couldn't be helped. And now I'm stuck...biting my nails, sweating, wishing on a star...anything for MY guy to be the one. ~Sigh~ It's gonna
