description I loved the first book is this series, so I was super excited to start this one, and well, it was just OK for me. One, I kind of felt like this couple's story really didn't require an entire second book. Nothing much happened, and I felt it was repetitive. Still, until the twist at the end of chapter 37, I was going to give this book 4 Stars because this author can write. However, I hated the fucking twist with the passion of a 10000 white hot suns. It was SO unnecessary and frankly took away f

Ellie wants answers about her past, about her family. Will wants to protect her. Those two things may not be in alignment with each other though...

Will the revelations be too much for these two to bear? Or can they overcome all the secrets in her past?

I originally read this last year when it was first released, this re-release has only made me appreciate the story more. It's a little gritty, it's sexy, and the love Ellie and Will share is r

Steamy and suspenseful, Her Lovely Lies was my first CL Clare novel. This story gives us WIll's POV and we are taken on his and Ellie's journey one that was filled with lies and secrets. This novel shows us the darkness in their past as well as the love they have for each other. With murder, mystery, danger, twists and turns you will be hooked until the end to find out what happens. The steamy scenes were scorching hott and will set your kindle on fire. I enjoyed this novel and will recommend it ...more

Her Lovely Lies by K.L. Clare is a dark romantic suspense that I listened to on audio narrated by Erin Mallon and Zachary Webber. This is the second book in All The Lies series.

This is the first series of K.L.'s that I have read it definitely won't be my last. She did a great job wrapping up Will and Ellie's story.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Two Pretty Lies to be released in September 2021 so I can get Thomas and Katie's story.

Erin and Zachary did an amazing job on the narrat

I am so jealous of Elle! Can Will be any perfect? I love Will, he's the perfect book husband. He didn't try to protect/hide Elle from what he's doing. He always include her in everything. He know she's a strong woman.

This is like the continuation of Will and Elle's story after they got married. There are more secrets that needed unveiling. The more they dig, the more it kept me on my toes. I wasn't expecting the twist at the end though. I seriously couldn't put this one down!

This is the 1st book I've read by K.L. Clare and she does not disappoint. Both Ellie and Will have a dark past and this book paints the picture of this darkness but it also shows the love they have found with each other. Keeping that love while fighting the darkness, mystery, murder and mayhem will keep you turning the pages. Loved it!!❤❤❤❤❤. I volunteered an honest opinion for this book. ...more

OMG! The suspense the angst! Jeez.
It’s a roller coaster ride. The title is perfect!

Book 2 continues where 1 left off. After their wedding, Will and Ellie are back to trying to find their new norm as a family but at the same time protecting Ellie and discovering all the underlying layers of deceit in the family.

Full of suspense, twist, and turns! The lie is so profound you will never imagine in your wildest dreams it’s what no one expected.

I’m not ready for Will & Ellie to end, I believe

Her Lovely Lies
All the Lies, Book 2
By: K.L. Clare
Narrated by: Zachary Webber, Erin Mallon

Her Lovely Lies is fantastic conclusion to the All the Lies Duet. Though the book can standalone, I definitely recommend the first book, as there is a lot of history that coincides with this one. It takes place 8 months after the end of book one, and Ellie and Will are still going strong. Married and taking care of Isobel's daughter, the two are still struggling with the grief of losing their siblings. Ell

This is the second book in the All the Lies Duet, a Romantic Suspense. Ellie and Will's story continues where the first book left off. The storyline is complex, steamy, and intriguing, filled with secrets revealed, danger, and unpredictable twists and turns. There is a log going on in this installment. This is a great conclusion to this duet. Erin Mallon and Zachary Webber did a fantastic job with the narration. #AudiobookObsession ...more

While I didn't enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first, I was very impressed with how the loose ends were closed. I also really adored the ending. Part of it wasn't an ending I really wasn't expecting at all. I mean I guess I should have been with the letters to the dead sister, but yeah I didn't suspect at all. I fully recommend this duology! ...more

Her Lovely Lies is the second in a series of books featuring brothers who were trained as secret bodyguards to a protect a royal line.

This book can be read as a stand alone, however I did wind up purchasing the first book for reference.

Her Lovely Lies picks up eight months after the first book in the series, Lies that Bind Us, has ended. A prologue at the opening of Her Lovely Lies gives us a brief glimpse into Elle’s life as an artist in a southern Connecticut town. It provides a grounding fo

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

“Our love was a mutual obsession beyond words.”

The Hastings have a long standing protection pact with the James family, as they are descendants of an English royal family. Over the years of protecting Ellie from afar, Will became obsessed with her. Once they met in person, a relationship develops and they eventually get married. Her Lovely Lies begins shortly after their wedding and the deaths of Isobel, Ellie’s sister, and Ethan, Will’s brother.

I read the first book, Lies That Bind Us, first and then immediately went into this story. I think that is a great way to do this because there are a lot of twists and turns in the first story, as well as a clear description of the roles of these two characters and how they relate to each other. This story is a continuation of the couple's love story and, as in the first book of this duet, there's a lot of steam, intrigue, twists and turns. In this story, Elle and Will are now married.

Having not read the first book of this series, I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to keep up and not be as lost in the story as I should have been. I really enjoyed the insight of the letters to Isobel as they helped me get a better understanding of the story. I also enjoyed having Will's point of view which needs to be done more in books, in my opinion, because it really does offer a new perspective to the story.

Still, even with having Two perspectives, I do think that my experience was

Her Lovely Lies is the 2nd book in the All the Lies series, so it works better if you read Lies That Bind Us first. I think the thing I loved the most about Her Lovely Lies was the mystery covering the story like a black cloud so I was on the edge of my seat. It also provided those super fun twists that get the f-bombs dropping which is totally my happy place. Ellie & Will are finally happy together, and yet, she's determined to get to the bottom of her family, and if that means that she doesn't ...more

This is the second book in the All the Lies series and it is one heck of a read. It can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the Lies That Bind Us first to understand the characters. As opposed to the first book, this one is told from Will’s point of view and continues his journey with Ellie. Their path has not been an easy one and there have been seemingly insurmountable obstacles that they have each had to face. However, no matter what life threw their way, they rode the waves with ...more

Wow! What a great continuation of Will and Ellie story. This book is from Will’s POV and we are not disappointed!! We get an inside look in what goes on in his mind, why he’s done what he’s done and I loved every second of it. This book is filled with twists and turns, suspense and of course romance. My perfect combination of ingredients for a romance novel. You will get all of the answers that you’re looking for.

The romance between Ellie and Will was scorching hot and there was so much mystery and adventure that I was never bored. I do wish I read the first book first so I could get a better understanding of Ellie's mindset and thinking but I will definitely check that book out now that I've gained Will's perspec ...more

This book is mostly from Williams POV which I found interesting since book one was all Elle's POV.
Here's what I liked about this book: lots of intrigue and drama, has a vibe of The Crown going on and I love that aspect of this duet.
There's a lot repetition going on with this book though and after a while I started skipping parts to get to the plot.
This is my first time reading a book by this author and I would definitely try another book by her.

Will and Ellie are deeply in love. They are each other’s worlds. Will wants to protect Ellie any way he can. Unfortunately they both have so much family drama that it consumes them every day. Ellie want to uncover the truth about who her family members really are. The emotional baggage of their families entanglement is Exhausting. Ellie and Will have an incredible Pull towards each other both emotionally and sexually. I enjoyed reading this book.

Like the first book I struggled with certain aspects of this book, but still found myself turning pages to find out answers to the many lies that were being uncovered. Some will blow your mind.

I found the characters more likeable in this, but . As much as I struggled with this duet, I still reccomend it as it definitely distracts you and keeps you on your toes.

Keeping this review short and sweet as don't want to sway readers either way. Give it a go..

Will and Elle's story will have your mind going. Their love for each other is out of this world. Will does everything he can to protect Elle. Elle wants answers about her past and her sister. Elle has been through so much in her life that when her and Will got married she finally started to feel whole again. This story will give you all the feels. I cant wait to read the rest of this series. The author did a great job with this book. Great storyline, characters and grammar. ...more

This book is an amazing continuation of Will's and Ellie's story especially because we'll get to see Will's character from another perspective and have a better understanding of him.
Furthermore, the omnipresent twists and turns and scorchingly hot romance are the perfect combination which guarantee to make this book your ultimate reading experience.

This was full of lies and secrets and suspense but also love. I was sucked into Will and Ellie's story and the mystery and suspense kept me glued wanting to find out what was going to happen. It's intense at times and sexy in others. It's a great read! I would suggest reading the first book however as it will make more sense. ...more

What a wonderful story. Two people who were brought together by a need to protect one of them. Unknowingly, she was being protected for years, and her protector, was someone who loved her and would give his life for her. Joint their journey to see why she needed safety, and who was after her. Loved them, beautiful story.❤️

This is the first book that I have read by K.L. Clare & sadly it wasn’t for me. I wasn’t a fan of Ellie & Will’s story. I tried, but never got into the story.

I would try to read other stories by this author in the future.
