This book is so stupid. I don't like games. I was somewhat enjoying their bickering in the beginning but quickly it turned to shit.
I thought the heroine started as weak, pathetic and a pushover. Everyone who knows her say so too.
Hero was an epic dick. I wanted reach inside my kindle and punch his stupid fac

Lie to Me is a good read. Savannah has ran from her family and ex and has started over. She keeps her past a secrets. Kent has had a bad past with his ex and he doesn't like lies and secrets. Savannah works for Kent's sister. At first I thought Kent came off as a jerk but he's just really jaded and guarded. In the beginning Savannah and Kent seem to hate each other but deep down there is more there. They both begin to crack and we get to see the real them and they hit it off. Of course the past ...more

Era il 19 aprile quando ospitai l'excerpt reveal di questo romanzo sul mio blog. Ormai sapete bene cosa mi porta a iscrivermi agli eventi legati all'uscita di un determinato romanzo: la cover. E quando ho visto la cover di Lie To Me, mi sono innamorata. È stato un vero e proprio colpo di fulmine, intensificatosi quando lessi l'estratto che pubblicai. Lo inserii in TBR, ma tutto finì lì perché, come sapete, non acquisto nuovi romanzi in inglese se prima non ho finito quelli che possiedo. Poi, è a ...more

Now, she lives on her own and keeps to herself.

At nineteen, Kent Lawson’s girlfriend betrayed him, leaving him behind with a broken heart and a whole lot of mistrust in women.

Now, he lives on his own and shares himself with nearly every pretty thing that walks by but only for one night.

When Savannah and Kent meet, they can’t stand each other.
Lie to Me has one of the most beautiful covers I've seen and it's what initially caught my attention. And even though I haven't read any books by Natasha Preston before I didn't read the synopsis before starting the book.

So I went completely blind. I was very excited for this book because it looked so good, but unfortunately it disappointed me. I couldn't see the connection between the characters and that made it hard for me to relate to them. I think it's because the story was a but rushed, eve

I have a great many of favorite tropes within the romance genre that I cannot help by gush over. For me, one of the favorites is that hate to love trope. I like the tension, the banter, the romancing tidbits between, the drama and overall connections within the characters circles. Something however that I find when authors attempt this trope is it can either flow perfectly, or it can tragically be choppy for a better lack of a term. There needs to be a balance, the hatred build needs to be estab ...more
2ish...maybe 2.5 stars

So I decided to read this book because technically it has my favorite MC combination: a broody, jerk hero & a lonely yet tough-as-nails heroine. And every once in a while I'm in the market for some good ole fashioned New Adult angst. [I also paid for this one which by principal I can't DNF unless it's an absolute nope.]

The execution just didn't work for me. I'm very aware of the sliding scale of NA angst/dramatics/OTT-ness. When it's good it's good and when it's not, it

Oh my stars. This is the first book I have read by Natasha Preston and I couldn’t put it down. My heart. The pain that both Savannah and Kent endured to get to where they are is heartbreaking and shattering. They start out as enemies as the banter between these two is witty and sharp tongued at times, but they both break each other’s walls down and let each other in. While Kent is up front with his past, Savannah is still too raw to let go of hers. Their passion for each other is off the charts ...more

When I was first approached about reviewing this book, I can admit I totally agreed because of the cover. I mean, look at it. It's simply gorgeous. Then when I read the synopsis, I knew I just had to read this book. And sadly, this book was a little bit of a disappointment for me.

The story follows alongside Savannah and Kent. Savannah has run away from him and has made a good life for herself. Though she doesn't see her family anymore, she's happy and finally feels free. But her bosses brother,

Yet another fabby bread by Natasha Preston!
Who likes liars? Certainly not main character in this story Kent,,, its the one thing in a person that he really cant abide by.
Hes been lied to in the past and he now doesnt let anyone close.
Savannah is running from her past.. she keeps to herself and doesnt let anyone know what she's gone through.
These charcters together are fab! The banter they have while denying their feelings is so funny!!!
And as always Natasha manages to throw in a huge unexpecte

I was really looking forward to reading this book, the cover is really beautiful that’s what interested me into this story.

Savannah hasn’t had much of good time the last few yrs, lost lonely and trying to make a new life for herself. But with a past lurking around how long will her new life stay in her control.

Kent, after having his own heartbreak he’s a one night kind of guy, but his head gets turned by his sisters new employee.

But someone’s past is about to come very much into the future &a

Lie to Me is an emotional, romance infused read.

 When I finished reading Lie to Me, I was overwhelmed with the intensity of emotions that came at me from all sides. The spine of the novel might scream romance, but what good is a skeleton for if it is left uncovered and naked? 

The author managed to perfectly show how emotional abuse could seriously fuck up anyone in a variety of ways. How it makes us shut down when it comes to little, yet specific things because they are that triggering, leaving

The banters between Kent and Savannah was fun. The thoughts they struggled to ignore was hilarious, especially Kent’s. Also, I adore his dynamics with his friends Max and Toby. The sexual tension between them is believable. It’s nice when you hang in there reading and waiting for their relationship to happen and the characters are not giving in. It’s not insta-love but it isn’t a slow-burn either. You’ll see what I mean when you read the book.

My only concern with their story is the conflict they

Lie to Me had highs and lows. Some parts were so poignant I could feel the emotion as if I were experiencing it with the characters and other moments seemed so ridiculously overblown I had a hard time reconciling them with the rest of the story.

Once I got rolling with the story I was hooked, I wanted to know more about what had happened to Savannah and her family, Kent’s previous relationship intrigued me, and I loved everyone in Kent’s life. Kent and Savannah’s back and forth, their contemptuou

This book was fun, a frolic between two stubborn people who were destined to be together but were fighting it with all they had. Kent acted like a jerk to hide how affected he was by Savannah, and she acted like a woman without personality so as not to react to Kent. He said she was empty and bland but gorgeous, and she said he was gorgeous but cranky.

Savannah ran away from her family three hears ago when she was nineteen, and started a new life. We know there’s been some sort of betrayal that l

These characters gave me whiplash! Their feelings went back and forth so quickly. Savannah and (more specifically) Kent's emotions for each other kept changing within the span of five minutes.

My Rating: 3 Stars

Ah, the love to hate trope. It can either go very very right, or very very wrong. Its a really fine balance because you want it to believable. If the characters hate each other too much, their romance feels false and forced, if they don’t hate each other enough, things get a little insta-lovey. The key is to find that sweet spot. Unfortunately, Lie to Me didn’t fi

Savannah Dean ran away from her family after they betrayed her in the worst way possible. Now she leads a peaceful albeit lonely life. Nothing matters in her life except her work. Until him.

Kent Lawson was burnt in love at the age of nineteen and since then has avoided any sort of serious relationship. He never believed another woman could get close to his heart and shatter all his defenses. Until her.

Savannah and Kent hate each other. Kent knows she's hiding something and he can't stand it. Sav

I’ve never read a book about a couple so stubborn until I met Kent and Savannah. They were attracted to each other but fought tooth and nail to not give in to the attraction. Kent was an a$$ and Savannah I have no words to describe how she was around him, lol.

When they finally got their head out their a$$es and realized that they were meant to be together, they went for it but with some hesitation. They were both hurt extremely bad in their previous relationship that I was surprised that they ac

Simple put a great read, A hate to love with a little bit of everything thrown in between, the story flowed so effortlessly I was able to read in one sitting !

I was able to identify with both of the main characters from the start, and the fact that they had been burned in previous relationships left them being awkward, stubborn and flirtatiously pushing the boundaries ! Whilst they tried to understand the feelings that they had for one another !

Kent was a stubborn ass, but pushed the boundarie

This is such a brilliant read! When two people have had such rough go of things, it is hard to trust anyone, especially someone new. Reading along as these two met, hated, shared and more was really exciting. They have so much to learn and overcome because previously their best option was to run, avoid and learn to live alone, but that isn’t always what life wants for you.

I loved the two main characters. They were interesting, deep and really had a lot to give the story. Preston, in her true fa

This was such a beautiful, eloquently written story that captivated me from the start.

Kent and Savannah have both been badly burned in the past by people the loved, so while love is such a key emotion that flows through the entirety of this novel, it’s also a stunning exploration of healing, forgiving yourself, and learning to trust someone with your vulnerabilities again.

I adore how much Kent’s family featured, seeing their interactions and how they became Savannah’s family too, showing family
