My plan does not include four stubborn, rich hot guys that just happen to run Harvard Academy. Brent, Cole, Tristan, and Axel are the top of the food chain. All the boys want to be them, and the girls want

I hated it. I hated the story, I hated the characters, I hated absolutely everything about it and I do not know why I made it to the end.

This is bully RH. I knew it even though the second part of the duet called it "a light bully romance". But what I did not expect was entering one hell of a toxic romance.

Because, let's be real, what is more romantic than being coerced into a relationship?

Brent, Tristin, Cole and Axel… oh my!

At 23% I was in love the these boys, hands down no questions asked. At 40% I was ecstatic with the way things were developing, even with the bully aspect. At 70% I was totally and forever in love with this story and by the end I was gasping and wanting more! I NEED book two, like NOW!

Kres is trying to get her high school life to stay on track so she can get a scholarship and escape a violent and hard life at home. She is incredibly smart and sassy, but comple

What a great story! Not one or two hotties but four?! Phew, I need some ice to cool down after all the sexual tension between the quads and Kresley. And just when you think all is well, BAM! There’s the twist slapping you in the face. All I know is that this book had me hooked from chapter one and I need the conclusion to this story ASAP!

Not your typical bully-read either so if you’re not into those you’re still good to read this one.

An absolute must read Bully/Reverse Harem read.
I 100% devoured this novel in one sitting and I'm beyond ready for the next.

Little White Lies will take you on one hell of a ride and leave you begging for more by the time you reach the last page. I hung on to every word until the very end. The chemistry between the characters is off the charts. I loved how strong Kresley is. She is the perfect heroine. And when you pair her with Cole, Tristen, Axel and Brent, you get a drool worthy fantasy fivesome. I can’t wait for book two.

Their betrothal is a business plan to manipulate and overtake Kresley’s father’s business interests.

Her father’s company needed financial investors therefore they decided to quietly purchase interests to effortlessly gain access to files and data to navigate a takeover.

The quadruplets are all set to take charge at the end and Kresley accidentally overhears the entire conversation.

Awaiting the conclusion in Instalment number two.

Just wow!

This book was unputdownable. I was really surprised by the captivating plot that is put together so well. I can't wait to dive into book 2 because that cliffhanger got me good.

Wow! I’m not sure what to say. Currently I’m in love with twisted high school romances that have that Cruel Intentions vibe and this story did not disappoint. Kresley is trapped by her wealthy family and their rigid expectations. She only hopes to win a scholarship and escape their control. Then you have the quads who move in next door and throw her plans out the window. As she tries to keep them at arm’s

The entire book swept me right in. I loved the characters and how she intertwined them to Kresley in a way you really rooted for all of them to win her over. She brought a nice intensity to the bubbling up of their attraction to her/and he to them as well. I'm really looking forward to book 2 to get the much needed answers that she left hanging. (sort of) I wasn't expecting the twist at the ending, I was for sure thinking something more fantasy (think Twilight) but turned in a different way. Out ...more

Sapphire Knight is a new author to me as this is the first book I've read by her. After reading this book it will not be my last it grabs your attention from the very beginning all the way to the last page. You have for super hot quadruplets that move into a new town and you have Kresley who lives across the street from them. Right from the beginning the boy showing interest in her and end up going to the same school as each other. Kresley gets some bullying from other students but not from the ...more

Sometimes I just want a bit of lighthearted silliness to cleanse the palate! But if it was written in this book it would be pallet. The book was riddled with homophones. It was almost artistic! Oh, but the story..

The heroine is a docile, poor little rich girl. Only she wants to study her butt off so she can get a scholarship and run away from her abusive father and woefully neglectful mother. The hero/s are another story altogether. One of the four "quads" decides to out of the blue propose to t

Holy Smokes what a sexy and wild ride and that ending! OMG what a cliffy to leave us with...good thing book 2 will be coming sooner rather than later! This author loves to surprise and shock her readers...haha...but it's really interesting and fun to try and figure out where the story is going and how it will end up for everyone. This book is not like most of the high school rich kids bully trope that is everywhere it seems right now...the story has some unique elements to it (4 hotties who are ...more

Little White lies is a highschool romance about the quadruplets: Brent, Tristan, Cole and Axel and their target Kresley. It started as a fun teenage romance with innocent flirting but quickly took a dark turn. There was bullying, physical violence, and manipulation. As the story was escalating so did the sexual tension between the main characters. The erotic scenes were mostly tame but very passionate. What shocked me the most was the twist towards the end

This is quite the amazing read. I was apprehensive going in. High school and bullies, I wasn't sure what to expect. Any notions I had going in were tossed out the window as I was pulled deeper and deeper into Kresley's world. These four guys come into her life and keep everyone on their toes. I love the connections, I love the differences between the guys and how each one has something special, something that compliments Kresley. It's a journey I couldn't get enough of, perfect twists and I'm on ...more

When I reached the end, I shook my Kindle and maybe cursed Sapphire just a little because there were no more pages to read. Wow! The sexual tension was masterfully woven throughout the plot to have you flipping the pages and dying for more. Kresley isn't your typical spoiled teenage kid with wealthy parents. She's smart, strong, and has a plan for her life. But the four incredibly hot guys who suddenly invade her neighborhood and her school take a liking to her and everything changes. Secrets an ...more

I enjoyd this book. The writing was good, plot line was interesting. But i just didnt find it flowed naturally. I felt it a bit rushed and i didnt get to really know the boys enough. Im hoping book two fixes that. I also felt like the main mc was too much of a pushover and i just needed her to have a bit of backbone. But i will still be waiting for book 2 to come out, the cliffy at the end was intense and i need to see how it pans out. So the author definitely did a great job of hooking you. 3.5 ...more

Oh what a tangled web Sapphire has weaved in this book! Absolutely amazing! What happens when life as you know it is disrupted? When all you have worked for is seemingly gone in the blink of an eye? Well, Kresley is about to find out just how deceiving life can be. And what she thinks she knows? Well, she is about to find out that she was wrong, very wrong. Great twisted, love story! Can’t wait for the next book!!

Good god this book swallowed me up and I couldn’t put it down I caught myself reading it during work and trying to see where Sapphire was going to take me. I have to say I fell in love with the boys each brought a different personality and meaning to the story, Kres definitely has her hands full but they are hot and moody and worth the trouble. I finally catch my breathe and she gives you the one two punch and now I am wanting book two!

Admittedly, I was a little confused about what was going on through the whole book until the very end when the circumstances made more sense. I was shaking my head throughout. That being said, I could not put this book down and all I wanted was to figure out how it would end. How they get their HEA. How they develop feelings for each other. All of it. Loved it!

This was different than what I am used to from this author but I enjoyed just as much! I read it fascinated by the story of the sweet shy girl who caught the attention of HOT quadruplet brothers. She slowly started falling for each one as they each enchanted her.
And then I learned The Little White Lies!
I can't wait for the next one! I am dying to know what happens next!!

Great book!!!!!!!

I so enjoyed meeting Kresley and the Quads!!!!! Each guy has his own distinctive personality so it’s easy to keep them straight in my mind. Kresley is such a kind, sweet heroine but I can’t wait to see what she does next!!!! I hope she gives them hell!!!! I can’t wait to read the next book and find out how the story ends!!!!!!!

Seriously the best

This book is different then what Sapphire normally does and I absolutely love it. The guys are hot alphas and Kresley is the best!! It shows how cruel some kids can be when you have grown up with them all your life. I can not wait for the next book to come out

Quite liked the premise and the cover is gorgeous, but I wasn't engaged by the writing style or the MC. I will probably try this again in the future though.
