Perfect Lie by Teresa Mummert

Perfect Lie

Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes all rational thought. 

That’s why Brock and I never had a chance. I had to start my life over. College was my chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but one person saw through my facade.
The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I still hadn’t healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.
A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.

(GUEST REVIEWER for SLITSREAD BLOG)

★★★ STARS

Please don’t let my average rating deter you. Yes, it’s beautifully written and yes, it is very unique. It just isn’t my cup of tea.

It started out slow, really really slow. Nothing much happened till about 80%. I hated to be left in the dark for so long. There were so many flashbacks between Brock and Lie but never the whole story. I felt like yelling “C’mon! Just give it to me now!” many times.

Character wise I really disliked Abel at first, of his seemingly playboy lifestyle. But, the ending made me realize he actually had a legitimate reason, one that I had to think a bit first before getting it.

There was a great deal of sadness in this book, from Lie missing Brock, to Lie being subjected to bullying, and the ultimate killer, her mom. It’s sad and unfair how people were blaming the victim. It felt backwards. Aren’t we in the 21st century?

Overall, it was beautifully written and I would recommend anyone to give this a try. I would put this under another genre instead of “Coming Of Age” or “New Adult”, but it would spoil the ending, or dampening the effect of it. And, it just happened that I hated that genre…
