I was called a prodigal son.
A scion of Midas.

I believed it. Why wouldn’t I?
Everything my father touched turned to gold.

The proof was all around me.
Luxury cars.
Elite schools.
A billion-dollar business.
Even my girlfriend, a Park Avenue Princess.

I reigned from a throne of lies.

My fall from grace . . . wasn’t graceful at all.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2! Throne of Lies (prologue) They fell in love amidst a scandal that would take them down!

“At six-three or maybe six-four, Remington towered over me, and I tilt my head back to meet his eyes. Long lashes cast shadows atop high cheekbones that slid sharply to his lips. Full and almost pretty, they were the perfect accent to soften his hard, patrician features.”

THRONE OF LIES: Is a quick dip into the 'Legacy of Lies' series,This is the prequel by new to me author Tara Leigh.

“Jolie Chapman was like the last present you open on Christmas morning, the one that makes all the others pale in comparison. She was a girl worth waiting for, a gift I wanted to take my time opening, enjoying the crackle of the paper, the pull of the ribbon.”

This is the beginning of Tripp and Jolie’s story. Theirs was a whirlwind romance, a love to rival all fair

I loved it. 🖤🖤 Plain and simple...

This is the perfect setup for the story to come! Young love, high society, ultra posh and rich lifestyles. And the writing matches the subject matter expertly. Tara Leigh's writing is gorgeous. Her prose is pretty, concise, and engaging. It's almost as decadent as the subject matter.

I was immediately pulled into the story and loved the setup and details that hinted at what was to come. This novella will certainly whet the appetite and leave the readers longing

This is a short novella that sets the scene ten years before Legacy of Lies. It's the introduction to the whirlwind romance between Jolie and Tripp, and their ultimate fall. Having met as teenagers, both of them are on top of the world. With their fathers business partners in a successful business, they don't want for much. But then one after another, the bricks of their foundation as they know it begin to crumble. Until it implodes in the revelation of a lie that destroys everything; the

This prequel novella sets up the story of Tripp and Jolie. Within in the novella, Tara Leigh delivers the intense emotions of teens falling in love, of two families torn apart in a bitter war to salvage their reputations, and the aftermath of what is left of the once pure and forever love of these the two teens. It is angst, drama, and betrayal at its best.

Tripp and Jolie are the quintessential wealthy youth in NYC. Think Gossip Girl. They are both from elite fam

Throne of Lies, the prequel to Legacy of Lies introduces us to Jolie Chapman and Remington Montgomery III. We’re thrown into an expansive and expensive world filled with glamour and money, deceit and downfalls, elite society and luxury lifestyles.

Oh wow! I don’t even know where to begin. This book just sucks you right in and leaves you wanting more! Throne of Lies is the Prequel to Legacy of Lies. It must be read first as it does end in a cliffhanger. Throne of Lies takes place 10 years before Legacy of Lies and while in this novella, the two main characters are college age, I wouldn’t categorize this as a YA/NA novella.

GAH! Throne of Lies was absolutely amazing. I love how the author set up this series in this prequel where we see the start of Tripp and Jolie's romantic relationship - their initial butterflies, stirrings of love and connection. It was a breath of fresh air as I loved seeing them so innocently happy. But when drama unfolds and their fathers' empires crashes, it is pure exploding fireworks. It's too bad that their relationship is caught in the crossfire.

Young lovers caught in a web of family and corporate corruption. The prequel was short and to the point with the introduction of characters. Ending on an abrupt and tragic cliffhanger, I'm quickly downloading the next installment to find out the rest of the story.

Well-written and intriguing to say the least.

Oh my gosh! Throne of Lies is a quick shot to the heart comparable to a roller coaster. It starts the story of Tripp and Jolie when they are pushed together by their high society families. They quickly fall for each other and the story ends on a huge cliffhanger that leads into the next book, Legacy of Lies. The ending of this book had me wanting to throw my Kindle across the room.

Tara Leigh starts of this series with a short and quick read that will leave you desperate for more. Thankfully the wait between books is only days apart.

Young, elite and living the life straight out of a fairytale. I fell in love with these two very quickly. Tara paints a pretty picture just to pull the rug out and I’m loving everything about it.

This is how you write a prequel.

Before I write my review, I need to take a quick moment to dish out some honesty. I was fortunate enough to beta read a very early version of Legacy of Lies – so early, in fact, it went by a different name. However, being given this chance to see the 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 stages o

Tripp and Jolie are the kids of high society Bankers. They live blessed lives. Tripp is Jolies date to a debutante ball. As neither of them really want to do these things, they click. Tripps love for Jolie is so honest and beautiful. All is looking rosey for this future power couple, until the cards come crashing down!

Can’t wait to start the next book in series. Fantastic story

I really enjoyed this prologue/prequel to Legacy of Lies! I loved how it combined the glitz and glam of the debutantes and New York elite with the ugly corruption of some powerful families. It was really fascinating and something I'm hoping to read more of in the future!

It was nice to get to see our two MCs fall in love. Their romance was sweet and exciting. Gah, young love, huh, it's always so much fun 😍😏.

I haven't yet read Legacy of Lies, but I'm definitely looking forward to it! Now

"She was a goddess spread before me, and I was about to make her mine."

Throne Of Lies is a nice prequel that gives you the basic knowledge you need to have to understand the main characters better in Legacy Of Lies. It basically shows the beginning and the end of Tripp and Jolie. You get a first impression what the emotions will be like in the main story and what caused the rift.

However I was a little disappointed in this novella. I felt distant to the characters, like I was only the observer to
