LIES UNSPOKEN IS LIVE!
RELEASE DATE: December 14th, 2014
Lies Unspoken (Flawed Love #1)
I tried hard not to fall for the bad guy.
My new roommate, Blake, is a jerk—an unemployed artist with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t stand him unless his hands are on me. He makes me desperate for him, and everything he makes me feel.
And then there’s my new boss, Pierce--successful, charming, and extremely good-looking. He goes after what he wants, but what does he see in me?
I try to stay away, but I end up in the arms of exactly who I was hiding from. And when I find out what’s being hidden from me, my heart twists in ways it never should.
I thought I knew him.
The way he kissed me.
The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin.
I thought it meant something, but as it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.
Wow… I’m still speechless after reading Lies Unspoken. Lisa, you have done it again! You made me fall for these characters, FEEL what they were going through as if it were me going through it, and BAM. The ending of Lies Unspoken gutted me.
“I thought about everything I’d lost and everything I’d never have. I’d trusted my heart to him, and he left it in a million pieces. I said goodbye to my happily ever after.”
Lila is heartbroken. After planning her whole wedding to her fiancé, he leaves her with little explanation. Instead of staying in the small town they were both raised in, Lila decides she needs a change. She wants to start over. Lila makes the decision to move to Chicago. Never in a million years did she think she would break all over again.
“I’d always assumed that time bound two people together. I was naïve. I’ve learned that people can fall out of love just as quickly as they fall into it.”
Then there’s Blake. Goddddddd…. He’s just YUMMY…. All bad boy, sexy, and an asshole, which sometimes even makes him sexier. Anyways, there’s something Blake is hiding, almost as if he’s experienced heartache too, but he’s so closed off, so no one really knows what his deal is.
“His warm breath tickles my ear, sending a trail of shivers down my back. I want to scream for him to leave me alone, but my boy is thinking something entirely different.”
While on the flight to start her new life, Lila meets, charming Pierce. Pierce is the guy who holds the key to Lila’s future in design. But are Pierce’s intentions good? Or is he offering a possible job because he’s interested in Lila?
Lila wasn’t looking for love in Chicago. She just wanted to get away from her old life. She never thought about being with someone else, after all her fiancé was her first, and only. But Blake made her feel things. It was a huge surprise when she walked into her best friend’s house, which was supposed to be Lila’s for a couple of months, to only find out Blake now lives there too. Blake is Lila’s best friend’s brother. There was nothing she could do since she couldn’t exactly afford her own apartment.
“That’s the thing about us – nothing is certain.”
From the moment she saw Blake she was attracted. He was a mystery that she wanted to figure out. He was frustratingly sexy, which only pissed her off more.
Let me tell you, Blake and Lila’s story is one you don’t want to miss. It’s a story of love, loss, heartbreak and learning to move on. Both Blake and Lila have things they’re hiding from each other. They were never supposed to fall for each other. But you can’t control who you love, and sometimes love isn’t enough.
“To understand pain and hurt, you have to have loved first. Who hurt him so badly that he won’t let himself go through it again?”
Lisa you outdid yourself with this book! I loved EVERY. SINGLE SECOND. Of this book. It sucked me in like no other book. I couldn’t put it down. I felt every emotion. From happiness, to flustered, to sadness, to downright broken. At times I wanted to crawl in the book and make both Blake and Lila see what they have right in front of them. You portrayed a love story between two people so thoroughly. I felt the love, and with love, I also felt their pain.
I love love loved this book. If you love a good romance that will tug at your heartstrings, read Lies Unspoken. I give it a bold 5 stars.
You already have me as a forever fan, Lisa. I can’t wait to read more about Lila’s story!!
“I don’t understand,” I finally say, my voice shaky.
His hands still cupping my face, he walks me back until I’m against the wall. His gaze is powerful, paralyzing me. No one’s ever looked at me like that. Not Derek, not anyone. “I want to fuck you so good that you’ll be begging me to fuck you again. Then tomorrow, I’ll do it all over so you don’t forget how good my cock feels buried inside of you.”
He slides his fingers down around the base of my neck, then down my arms, letting his thumbs brush against my breasts. “The way your body curves into mine, the way you shudder under my touch; I feel it, Lila. You want this. I know I want this.”
If I could orgasm from words alone, I’d be clenching around every single syllable that just fell from his lips. He grips my hips pulling me into him. So big. I’m like an alcoholic that’s been given a sip; there’s no going back.
