's review

it was amazing

This is the hardest review I've had to write all year. Sometimes you read a book that's so magnificent, so completely perfect you literally don't have words to describe it and no matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you dig inside yourself, you can’t find the right ones.

This...

This book incapacitated me. It pulled emotions from so deep within my body that I swear, I didn’t even know they existed. Honest to God, I had trouble seeing past the F5 tornado that churned in the base of my chest.

Saying it was intense would be an understatement.

Saying it was riveting would not adequately describe how addicting it was.

Saying it was spellbinding would only be the tip of the iceberg.

It was ALL that and so much more. It was, what I would consider to be, the PERFECT book!

When I received Lies Unspoken, I hadn’t intended to read it right away. I had several other novels that needed to be read beforehand, but I was so intrigued by the sexy cover that I decided I was going to sample it, get just a teeny taste of what I was in for. Well.... that little taste turned into a full blown, devour it read.

I couldn’t stop.

I couldn’t move.

I couldn’t breathe.

Everything about the book from the enchanting characters, to the breathtaking writing, to the heart stopping emotion behind each word, claimed me, stealing a part of who I am.

I was enraptured, completely consumed.

I’ll tell you, I cried while reading the prologue! I freaking CRIED!!!!

That never happens! EVER! This book is packed solid with emotional angst, emotional angst that is so superb, it’s simply IMPOSSIBLE to look away from once you start. The words, the characters, they embed themselves in your pores and it becomes an obsessive addiction. It becomes a drug that you not only need but crave and after it’s all said and done an EXPLOSION happens in your soul.

It’s JAW DROPPING.

THIS book is blissfully painful. It is the book we search and search to find. It’s paradise, a book lovers HEAVEN! It’s EVERYTHING a book is supposed to be and more. Pure and utter perfection.

I know this review is rather vague and I wanted it that way. I honestly think you should go into this without prior knowledge of what’s going to go on.

The blurb says enough.

You know that Lila is going to meet two men. Pierce, a damn near decadent business man that will make you tingle and drool all over your kindle, and Blake, the complete opposite of Pierce, an artist, a bad boy, a moody but irresistible man with a past that is shrouded in heavy secrets and unbelievable pain.

There's sooooo much turmoil here. So much depth. These characters are well rounded and the book not only pulls on your heart strings but is also loaded with the heavy, shiver inducing dose of sexy times.

When I say this book is perfect, I mean it. It's the PERFECT compilation of angst, sex and raw, unbridled emotion. I don't know how the author did it, but she's literally written a book that is the very thing I search to find.

I could say so much more, but Lisa De Jong has stuck gold for a book junkie like me. She has made me feel deep. She has made a long lasting impression. Her characters have burst to life and found a permanent home in my heart.

I would HIGHLY encourage angst lovers to read this book. The twists and turns are body rocking, the sex scorching and body blazing, the writing top notch! I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment and I know you will feel the same thing. It's one hell of an addictive read, one that you are going to be screaming to everyone and their mother to start.

This is, without a doubt, a TOP five book of the year for me!

❤❤❤ FAVORITE QUOTES ❤❤❤

"I knew the moment you walked out in that sexy little robe that I was going to f*ck you." When he slips one finger inside me, I gasp. "You're so f*cking wet and ready for me. I dare you to make me stop. This pretty little p*ssy would hate you for it."

"He's going to be my vice and virtue all in one-- my wrongdoing and good deed. Every game has a winner and loser, but when he's buried inside me, the end game is the last thing I want to think about."

He's created a sinner. I'm addicted to the fire with which he burns my skin--a slow singe that spreads until my whole body is aflame."

"Is you heart beating for me?" His fingers curl around my wrist, bringing my hand to his bare chest. His heart pounds against my palm. "Feel that? Do you feel what happens to me when I'm touching you?"

"Love isn't defined by what you deserve. It's about finding that one person you know you can't live without and never letting them go."

Thank you, Scarlett!!! I hope you enjoy it. This was so much more steamier and angstier than Lisa's other books. It's by far her best.. IMO!
