His lips told me he knew me.
His hands touched like we were old lovers.
His eyes held secrets of a past I’d never known.
I was lost, you see.
Lost as the flowers that grew in the meadow.
The devil told me he knew me.
But lies had a way of unraveling, even if we didn’t want them to.
The devil had a trick, for his love was full of acid. Acid that burned at every touch, every linger

A suspenseful, dark, raw, gritty read which had me devouring the pages like a blood thirsty vampire seeking blood.

BURIED IN LIES: Is a full length standalone dark novel by T.L. Smith. In two parts, flits from past to present effortlessly.

This isn’t a fairy tale with fluffy cats and farting unicorns sprinkling glitter onto the pages, because nothing and I mean nothing can really prepare you for this book, yes it’s dark, it’s gritty and pretty much as fucked up as one can get,

Felt its power?

That was how I met Syler Hunter.

Holy shit and Oh My God was all I could think while closing the book. (I know I have to re-write some parts of this review before putting it on amazon). Well, actually I closed my kindle HAHA but anyway. Let me say this first: Going for this book, be prepared for a hell ride you won't be prepared for. No matter how many reviews you might end up reading.

This book was DARK and TWISTED AF! I do not do Dark Romances. My anxiety cant handle it and yet I couldnt stay away from this story. I was too weak to fight the pull 😫It gripped me from the start! I found myself pulling my hair and chewing my nails and sometimes doing both at the same time cause my emotions were all over the place.

{The Mouse didn’t stray from the Wolf. No, she stayed with the Wolf.}
This book was a new kind of dark for me..the mystery, the anticipation of finding truths, the craziness that the character oozes and the lies that were told.. was nothing but in all a compelling and captivating story.
{my devil was stronger. For him, I couldn’t forgive. For him, I was going to punish.}

Interesting storyline, compelling character development,
great heroine who acts like naive lamb, hiding her inner lion perfectly, confused, broken but charismatic hero!
Don’t forget Taj, deceiving, dangerous but alluring character. And of course our irritating, disturbing woman villain who is also sister of our hero!

Look I am not going to hide the fact that I am a HUGE fan of T.L. Smith and that I have read everything that she has ever written, because quite simply I absolutely adore her and her writing hand. So I knew, I just knew when Buried In Lies fell into my kindle I was in for the ride of my life. I knew the queen of darkness (yes T.L.) was going to again blow my mind once again.

Looking for something a little different? How about a lovers to enemies dark romance? USA Today bestselling author T.L. Smith has written an exceptionally dark tale about friends, lovers, enemies, hatred, and lies. Buried in Lies is not for those that are looking for a happy ever after filled with rainbows and butterflies.

This is book is brilliant, jammed packed with WTF moments that leave you with your mouth gapping and are at a total loss for words at what you have just read. This is all completely typical when you read a book by TL Smith but she just seems to go that step further with every book.

The story is unique, if I can call it this but yes a little quirky, and most defintely a total and utter mind fuck. The main characters are some of which I have never read before. Jaya, Sylar and Toska are just someth

"She and I Fell into the pages of that book and got lost in the words".

One thing you don't get with TL Smith and that's hearts and flowers. What you do get is characters that are complex, a puzzle you think you can solve and you just can't, they are what they are but likeable in their own dark and messed up way.

TL Smith has once again written characters that lure you in by their actions which in the real world would be hard to comprehend and once again TL Smith has blown me away with

This book is a total mind fu@k in the best way possible. This story is twisted, dark, and utterly delicious.

Syler is mysterious with the penetrating green eyes and is a wolf. Jaya is his mouse and that my friends equals and amazing story.

Even the secondary characters Taj and Toska will leave you hoping for more! And I do hope this book becomes a duet or perhaps a spin off will happen in the future.

Absolutely brillant story telling. ☆☆☆☆☆

What a dark, deep and dastardly mind wreck!!! What the heck?? I read it, but I don't believe it!!! Might need to read this again. Not only to ensure what I read reaply happened, bht also because it was that good. I am struck speechless. This talent just has this supreme mindblowing effect. You will be in such a book slump after reading Buried in Lies, you may be ruined for all other authors.

To fall for a madman you must first taste the devil

Wow this book is crazy hot. This book will definitely be in my top favorite book. So much rage, possession, addiction, and steam. This book is incredible.

This is a dark story about three characters. Jaya, Syler and crazy girl named Toska. Without details. Go into this story blind if you think you can handle the darkness.

Bizarre and unbelievable stuff happens here! Some kind of darkest and most disturbing Little Red world..... "weird shit pulls in more weird shit". I just did not get it. I also did not care for single character in this story.

Buried in Lies by Author T. L. Smith is a dark romance novel.

“Your eyes are buried in lies, did you know that?”

You know how sometimes you just crave a certain type of novel? I love dark romance, and I needed a fix. From the moment I opened this novel and began reading, an air of mystery settled in around me. I was completely enveloped in the strange and intoxicating setting created by Author T. L. Smith.

This is a story about a girl who gets involved with two murderous psychopaths. Nothing about Toska or Syler was remotely appealing. They weren't psychopaths with charm who lured you in. They were nothing but demented from the start. I didn't find them interesting because there was no depth to them. There weren't deeper layers to be revealed. They simply did the fucked up things they did because they liked to.

Around a third of the way in, I realized that I didn't give a shit about the characters

It’s only the second week in January and I’ve already read two of my favourite books EVER and this story is one of them.

I believe this is a book that it’s best to know nothing about the story and to be honest I’m not sure I would be able to describe the plot adequately. What i do know is that it is unlike anything I’ve read before the premise is totally unique.

There are three main characters, Jaya, Syler and Toska but how to describe them complex, compelling , fascinating, manipulative, thrilli

That was a helluva thing! I'm slightly questioning my moral compass after this read. It was dark, messy, and intriguing. You couldn't help but read on. While the acts were definitely of a questionable nature, it was still too easy to fall in deep with a certain green eyed monster.

Buried in Lies will pull you in quicker than you like and won't release you until it's done. It's captivating and gets your fight or flight instinct tripping. It was a ride I won't forget.

I love a great dark story, and this one is definitely that. Slyer and Jaya story will suck you in. It will twist you around and maybe give you up. Slyer isn't fluffy and cuddly, but he have his timed Jaya.
This is a must read !

Not even sure where to start to review this book, but i absolutely loved it. Jaya and Syler do not have a normal relationship at all, actually it is so far from normal. I could not put this book down kept me wanting to turn the pages fager then I was reading, so I could find out what was going to happen next. This is not ur normal romance book, which made it even better.

Rollercoaster of crazy dark madness!! T.L. Smith always delivers. This book was a page turner never knowing what will happen. I love a book that makes it where I can't get anything done from reading.

I love all that is T.L Smith and this book was amazing as is all her writing. Probably one of my favorites so far. Every book I read by her is uniquely written cause she in my opinion is the only author who I can’t predict the outcome cause she always does the unexpected. This book was dark, twisted, emotional, gritty. Basically a utter mess then unfolds into a darker love story. This is not a cookie cutter romance and was not a easy read but should not be missed.

Holy hell, this book takes you on a wild ride full of unexpected twists and turns! It is dark, suspenseful and hauntingly beautiful. It was unlike anything I have ever read before and I loved it.

Jaya Elmor works at the local cinema with Toska Hunter. The two are friendly, but not exceptionally close. At least not until she lays eyes on the mysterious Syler Hunter. She is captivated by him and soon finds herself in the middle of a deadly game of cat and mouse, not knowing where to turn or who to
