Lie to Me

(Clarke Brothers #1)

I’m happy up here in the mountains. There’s no one else around. No one to remind me of the past, no one to ask me about the future. My life is simple, but it’s enough.

Until suddenly, it’s not enough anymore.

Maddy shows up with the company that’ll rip this mountain apart and I know I should hate her, but I can’t. I know I should stay away, but I don’t want to.

I really enjoyed this this book. I liked Maddy and Aiden. It sucked that her dad's company did what they did to him and his brother's. However, they loved each other and got to have their HEA. I look forward to reading the next two books in the series.

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I really enjoyed reading the story about Aiden and Madeline. Aiden is a young man who lives on the side of a mountain away from everyone else due to issues in the past regarding his father's death, The McCoys a local family, especially Maura McCoy his ex-girlfriend.

Aiden is furious with the Mccoys ever since they talked him and his brothers out of their business to help pay off their father's hospital bill. They realized afterwards how they were taken advantage of but by then it was too late. Now the town is in an up roar about the building of a new hotel that will upset the natural balance of nature and extinct animals that survive in the forest and river. Maddy is an environmental engineer who has been sent to represent the company who is building the ...more

I really enjoyed the characters in this book and the storyline was good but it just didn’t give me as much as I was expecting, I will definitely carry on with this series to find out what else happens but it wasn’t as full on as I expected. There was some twists and turns which I loved and I loved the ending of this book which is why I wanted to give it a higher rating but overall this book was just a little flat for me sometimes which is why it seems to of taken me a while to finish - As I said ...more

What happens?
Madeline is making up for her dad owning a oil company so she works as an environmental expert for a construction company.
Aiden and her meet at a community talk about a new hotel her company is building. Aiden is an unwilling part of the movement to stop the hotel being built and they cannot
Great characters. Even though they are on opposite sides of the construction of a brand new resort hotel in this tiny peaceful town, Maddy & Aiden have a sweet yet steamy instant connection that they can't deny.

The chapters are short and change povs back and forth so it reads really fast and holds your interest easily.

The bonus content of her first book 'Doctor O' is also great. There are also two sneak peeks of two books in the Knocked Up series. I recommend both series!

Madeline is going into the mountains to sell a small town on the idea of the hotel her company is building in their virgin forest. Aiden is asked by the town to represent the their interest in keeping the hotel out. They are on opposing sides, but still can't fight the pull they feel. Will they be torn apart or drawn together by this hotel?
Loved it! Great story, great characters. I look forward to the next Clarke brother's adventure.

Lie To Me by Lilian Monroe was the first book that I have read from this author and found it very intriguing, the writing was well done and the storyline captures your attention from the very start. The characters are strong, independent and they definitely have some major chemistry. I really enjoyed this story and was hooked till the very end. I absolutely recommend this great story, I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

The mountain man and the environmental woman

This story is full of passion, and sacrifice, and how the death of two fathers changed the lives of their children. It's been a while since I've read one of Lillian's books but I'm so pleased to have found her again. From starting this story I was hooked, and looking forward to reading this series.

They were on opposite sides of the debate but their chemistry would not be denied. Was there any chance of a HEA for Aiden and Maddy? This is the book in the "Clarke Brothers" series and the first book by this author I have read. I can't wait to read the next brother's story.

Aiden and Maddy capture our hearts in Lie to Me. Aiden is fighting to keep his heart from breaking again after he meets Maddy she starts to heal his heartache. I love these books and look forward to seeing what happens next.

Great book!

I normally don't like first person books in which both guy and girl take first person, but loved this one! Maybe it was the storyline or the mountains the townspeople wanted to save. Really enjoyed this story!
