Legacy of Lies is book one in the Legacy of Lies series by Tara Leigh. This is the continuation of Jolie and Tripp’s story from the prequel, Throne of Lies. I just finished this book a few minutes ago and wanted to try to write this while my emotions are running rampant. Because they really are. I’m a mushy, crazy, emotional bunch of goo right now. This book, both of them, have been the focus of my every thought the last couple of days. That’s how amazing they are!

I haven't read a lot of books from Tara Leigh but I can easily say this is one of her best books so far!I was hooked from the beginning and I couldn't stop reading!Legacy of Lies is full of emotions, it's intense,passionate and fast paced.


Jolie and Tripp stole my heart, this is for sure an epic love.It has everything I wanted and even more.There is hurt,passion,desperation,regret,love and intensity between these two.

Tara Leigh delivers a story with suspense, a heavy romance, a brilliant

Tara Leigh, a new to-me author, has astounded me with this series.

Legacy of Lies continues the epic love story between Jolie Chapman and Remington “Tripp” Montgomery III. It started as passionate, an envious fairytale, only to meet a tragic ending when they were both young. I loved the prequel, but beyond adored this sequel.

“You have to figure out a way to forgive the mistakes of the past so you can build a future together.”

Wow! This book! It broke my heart, it healed my heart, I cried, I laughed, I swooned, I fell in love and I felt everything! The breathtaking conclusion to Tripp and Jolie’s story that began in Throne of Lies was everything I was hoping for, and I loved it!

I’m a sucker for a second-chance-romance, and after that devastating ending to the prequel novella, I was so excited to dive into this one. It’s set ten years after Throne of Lies, and both Tripp and Jolie find thems

Tara Leigh has composed her best novel to date. The betrayal and the secrets are just icing on the cake of this steamy second chance romance. I will never get enough of Jolie and Tripp.

Tripp is just all the things. I love him with all of my heart. Too much? Maybe, but I really do love him. He is honorable and loves fully. His nobility and desire to make amends and do the right thing makes him worthy of the throne he has lost. Watching him fight for that las

I loved the setup in Throne of Lies, but loved the conclusion even more! Lingering questions were answered and we see Jolie and Tripp together again. Eeeeep! It was all the things!

So here's what you need to know....
Second chance romance AND secret baby!! These tropes are two of my favorites and the execution was amazing! Tara Leigh can write!! Man oh Man, I was impressed by her prose. It’s so crisp and pretty. Her wordsmith skills are stellar! I cannot wait to read more of her words!

Desire was a razor blade, the slice quick and effective.

Pretty good conclusion to this quick duet. The way things planned out I wasn’t quite expecting. I truly loved Jolie and Tripp and their push and pull in this book. They had a lot of history to recover from, and it was fun reading them get through it. All in all a good angsty second chance romance with tons of secrets and lies revealed and uncovered!

Also... Eva needs a book! Does she have a book? That’s a story I’d like to read!!

What an epic love story.
Tripp and Jolie are back. Ten years later from the life changing events that rocked their families. They both have secrets. They both have new problems to contend with. Most importantly, they’re both so incredibly besotted with each other it’s sensational.

I adored this book. Looking forward to reading more from this author ❤️

After learning that he was an heir to a throne built on lies at nineteen due to his father's billion dollar ponzi scheme, Tripp Montgomery reinvents himself to never allow people like his father to reign as a thieving king again. For this reason he spent the last decade building his own fortune by exposing embezzlers, thieves and criminals. But what happens when he is reunited with his long lost love and assumptions he made in the past are blown away in light of long lost secrets and betrayals.

I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption. Stripped of everything I'd been raised to consider my birthright. Including my princess—who wasn’t mine after all.

If you follow my reviews, you know that second chance romance is my catnip. Something in that sweet sweet angst of lovers reunited after years apart just speaks to me. I gobble it right up. So of course the blurb to this book reeled me in like a moth to a flame.

If I though the prequel was amazing, I had no idea how truly brilliant Legacy of Lies would be.

Tripp was even better than before and I lived for his moody a**. He is closed off, hiding behind a computer screen and acts like an a**hole because he got his heart broken by all the people close to him, with exception of his best friend who is now also his business partner. But put Jolie back in his life and you see his facade start to crumble at first sight, even while pretending to

“…Why had I ever thought love would feel like sunshine and rainbows? It didn’t. The love I felt—it was fierce and possessive and pervasive. Invading every crevice, every cell, every atom of my being.”

As an introduction to a new author, Legacy of Lies was sensational! Tara Leigh is without a doubt a very skilled storyteller and Legacy of Lies left me dying to get my hands on more of her words. There is much to love about this book and haven't the talent to express them as beautifully

Tripp has been building his business since his father's business and his inheritance was all based on lies.

Jolie has made it big as a model and is wanting to start her own business.

These two have avoided New York since the incident, but they both know they need to move on with their lives.

Tripp has always loved Jolie, and even though he tries, he can never hate her like he wants. He can't when he knows he is keeping secrets from her.

WOW! So much happens in this story. Tripp and Jolie's story was amazing. They had to endure betrayal from all sides from people who loved them.

Jolie, I thought who had it worse. Living with a secret everyday, that only hurts her even more. Because the secret is a living with person who she thought she could trust.

Tripp becomes the only person who can protect her from the past they were torn apart from.

The stunning conclusion to The Lies duet, Tara Leigh takes you on an emotional journey. Legacy of Lies fast forwards 10 years from Throne of Lies.

Tripp and Jolie find themselves reunited and each of them have some secrets their keeping. This second chance romance has some love/hate in it that had me devouring the pages. Chemistry that is off the charts and bombshells that will have you gasping.

One of the best second chance romances of this year!! Bravo Tara Leigh!

Make sure you read the prequel first!! I fell in love with Jolie and Tripp all over again. Their chemistry and pull was off the charts. A bit of a modern tale Romeo and Juliet twist. It was delicious. This romance was also suspenseful, I didn’t know where we would end up a couple times.

As with my review of the prequel story, Throne of Lies, I wish to start this review with a moment of honesty.

I was fortunate enough to beta read a very early version of Legacy of Lies – so early, in fact, it went by a completely different name. However, being given the chance to see an early form of this book in no way influenced my ratings and reviews of Throne of Lies and Legacy of Lies. My ratings and views of the final product are completely independent of what I got to see in the early stag

Jolie and Tripp's story continues in Legacy of Lies. They are running from their past till their paths collide and their lives turn upside down before starting a new one all together. I can't say much about the story without spoilers. But just know you will be completely shocked , surprised and totally hooked with the twists and turns of the story. My jaw is hurting from hitting the floor too many times. Second chance romances with star crossed lovers often run the risk of being predictable. But ...more
"In a scandal that set our families against each other, I lost.

“I fucking hate you,” I whispered against his lips, my body at war with my mind. I hated him for his deceit.
Mostly, I hated him for reminding me of my own.
“I fucking hate you more,” Tripp rasped, drawing my lower lip into his mouth and biting on it.”
