This was a quick read that was tender sweet with delicate hits of delectable steamy bits, sigh, it was a welcome treat between the taut thrillers and murder mysteries I’ve been dabbling in of late. I have feasted on each of the three books in this delightful and entertaining series and have my fingers crossed that Ms. Elks will continue the series by writing books for each unique small-town citizen residing in this out of the way beach town. The storylines are engaging and easy to follow while t ...more

Carrie Elks takes us back to Angel Sands for the second chance romance between single mom Brooke Newton and "brought up on the other side of the tracks" turned success story, Aiden Black. I've loved getting to know this little group of woman and Brook is the last of the Angel Sands trio to get her story. She has a surprisingly edgier story with an interesting twist surrounding her son Nick. Seems that little miss socialite has her limits and like any good momma bear when push comes to shove, she ...more

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.

Sometimes you start a book, thinking that you know what the story will be about. But then the story surprises you in such a way, that it leaves you unbalanced and curious for the rest of the story. And that’s what ‘Sweet little lies’ did to me and as a reader I couldn’t have been more happy about it!

I don’t want to give away too much of the story, but I can tell you that it’s indeed a second chance story. I love those

"Sweet Little Lies" is an ARC provided by the author for an exchange honest review.

Carrie Elks is one of my favorite authors in the novel category. She can capture our heart and soul in every story she writes. I love her fluid writing, because she can take us to Angel Sands.
 "Sweet Little Lies" is the third story she has written for her new series Angel Sands. What a fantastic story she has created for these two characters.

I was given this book in turn for an honest review.

When the boy Brooke has spent the last ten years aching for, returns to Angel Sands, now a strong, sexy man, she realises her secret will have to come to light, only she hadn’t banked on her past and future colliding with its own revelations. Will Brooke and Aiden fight for the future they deserve, or will it be over before it began?

Having read quite a few books by this author, I have now come to expect a certain standard and style of writing from Carrie Elks, she writes such amazing stories that toy with your emotions and gives you such a deeply loving romance story between her characters that will warm your heart. Sweet Little Lies absolutely blew all of my normal expectations out of the water.

Ahhh it was so good to be back in Angel Sands.. and this story from the wonderful Carrie Elks brings you bucketfuls of sweet tender love! Everything I read from Carrie has me wanting to up and move to that place and become best friends with the characters! She keeps it real while taking you on a fantasy filled with hope.

Brooke has been controlled by her parents pretty much all her life, but little did she know just how controlling they'd been. This story brings lies and heartache along the way,

*I received an ARC for my honest review*

Aiden is a kid from “the wrong side of the tracks”.
Brooke is a girl from a well to do high class family.

It had been 10 years since they have seen each other. The last time they saw each other, they had been caught together by Brooke’s father. Brooke’s father then had Aiden and his family sent away.

Brooke is now a single mother with a BIG secret. Aiden is a big shot director of a luxury resort. Aiden is back in town to oversee construction of a new resor

I am blown away by just how much family drama is contained in this one book. And, from opposites attract to secret baby to second chances, this story also covers a whole bunch of different themes. The author blends it all together so skillfully that you don’t really notice how much is happening until it’s all over. I loved Brooke. She’s a fierce mamma bear but she’s also prone to the same human frailties as the rest of us. Aiden left me wondering a lot of the time. He’s got a ginormous chip on h ...more

Now he is back in town it is clear that the attraction betwen them is still there, but Brooke is keeping a big secret, so will they get a second chance when he finds out what she is hiding?

Sweet Little Lies is Book Three in the Angel Sands series and although each story is a standalone novel that focuses on one characters journey I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order as characters from previous books do crop up in each story and also you’ll be missing a treat of a series if you don’t get chance to read them all. The books in the series are:

Angel sands sounds so good I totally want to move there. I adore Carries writing, she makes this little town so believable and you connect with these characters. I adore the friendship these girls have, it feels like nothing could tear them apart and they would do anything for each other. I'm not usually a massive fan of second chance romances but the twists in this made it really interesting. Brooke and Aiden totally seemed like people I would get on with and that's all thanks to Carries writin ...more

I’ve been a big Carrie Elks fan for a while now and I’ve been loving the Angel Sands series. So when I saw the sign up for a review opportunity for ‘Sweet Little Lies’ I couldn’t resist and signed up as fast as possible. I devoured the first two books in this series ‘Let Me Burn’ and ‘She’s Like The Wind’. So I was over the moon when I got an ARC to read.

In ‘Sweet Little Lies’ we meet Brooke Newton. Brooke is a single mom and working hard to get her college degree. After getting her son when she

This is another gem by this author and a nice addition to the series. The books can be read as standalones, but I do recommend reading them in order, as you’ll get to know the characters even better. Set in a small coastal town in Southern California, it tells of a group of lifelong friends and the men who win their hearts.

This third book focuses on Brooke Newton. She comes from a wealthy and privileged background, but has been struggling for her independence since she was around 18. She’s a sin

I think that Brooke has the biggest heart and that she is able to forgive her parents especially her father for what they did is so huge. She is such a strong character and even though she has low self esteem she still sticks to what s

"It had been ten long years between their first kiss and this last one. Those years of heartbreak had finally led to this moment of pure joy. And as he held her tightly and kissed her until she was breathless, Brooke knew the wait had been worth every minute."

What happens between that first kiss and the last kiss? We so love a GOOD second chance story... in real life and in books. This book delivers. Brooke and Aiden are too young to defy the odds. Boy from the wrong side of the tracks alongside

This is such a lovely story, it is really sweet and so easy to read. Carrie Elks always writes a good romantic story, with great characters and wonderful storylines and this one is no exception. I really didn't want to put it down.

Brooke's a single mom, and Nick is a great kid. They live in the pool house behind her parents' mansion, and in many ways, her wealthy parents still have her under their thumbs while she finishes college. She's behind in achieving that dream because of the time she's spent raising Nick, but she wouldn't trade her son for anything. Aiden was the guy from the wrong side of town. He and his mom and brother left Angel Sands years ago, having been threatened with prosecution for something they didn't ...more

I’d been looking forward to Brooke’s story, but didn’t anticipate just how good it was going to be. Really enjoyed the unexpected twists in this one.
Brooke is studying hard to graduate & gain financial independence from her meddlesome, controlling parents. She’s shocked to cross paths with Aiden, a past love she hasn’t seen since she was a teenager.
Aiden is back to manage the restoration of a resort in Angel Sands. He might’ve left town a decade before as a poor kid from the wrong side of town,

I really enjoy this Angels Sands series. Each romance novel is a standalone about a different couple, but they are all interconnected because they feature the residents of a small coastal California beach town where "everybody knows your name."

This time single mother Brooke, working hard to raise and support her eight-year old son Nick while studying AND deeply involved in animal welfare volunteerism (whew, where DOES she find the time!?) is surprised by the return of her high school

A Family-Oriented Romance with All the Feels

I had read the previous book in the series, which I enjoyed very much. The author has a way of delivering a sweet romance that has all the feels. The hero and the heroine in this installment of the Angel Sands series are both good and likable people, but they have issues they must face in the present as well as problems from the past that keep you turning the pages to see how it will all end up. I absolutely adored the heroine’s son, Nick; what a great
