I give this book 4.90 stars.
Two truths and a lie. 'This book was fabulous. I loved it so much I finished it in a day. I have become obsessed with Trudy Stiles book and love her incredible writing, stories, and love of music that she incorporates into her books. You will not fall in love with this book. (ok three truths. Whatever.)
Trudy Stiles took two beautifully damaged characters and brought them together in a truly epic way. This story follows Daxton Anderson, Epic Fails drummer when his life is saved by a sweet girl named Giselle who lets him sit in her car during a storm. As Trudy Stiles expertly tells their stories from the past and the present, the reader slowly gets to understand each character as they try to understand the undeniable connection they share.
Daxton is every girls dream guy. He is sweet and sexy as all hell. I loved that he was so caring throughout this entire book. I mean that man knows how to treat women. He was always sincere and said what was on his mind. He didn't play games. He got straight to the point and went after what he wanted. I loved that desire for acceptance was so strong that he didn't let it get in the way of his relationship with Giselle. Giselle was also a great character. She had been through a lot and had been hurt and lied to many time to count. Despite all that, she was willing to see where things with Dax would go, she never hesitated. Although I did get just a tad bit annoyed with her for running away from hardships and her initial drive to ignore her true feelings.
I was so engrossed in this story I finished it in one day. That has not happened in a very long time for me. This book kept me interested from the very beginning and I did not want it to end. I wanted more of their story because that last time had me screaming, "this cannot be it." It flowed real easy, I was able to keep up with what was going on. I loved the structure of each chapter and how you got to see Dax and Giselle's past and big moments in their lives that seriously impacted them.
I loved this book. If you want a quick and great romance, I highly recommend this book. You do not have to read the other books in the series to keep up. Trudy does a great job introducing you to the other members in the band. I will say some people may feel this is too insta-lovey for them but I did not get that vibe once-so-ever once you grasp the depth of Dax and Giselle's relationship.
Epic Lies is a romance novel about two characters who have been deeply hurt by lies in their past. Lies told by their loved ones. Lies from the very people who they thought they could trust. Whether outright lies or lies by omission, the result is the same. It becomes very hard to trust and give love freely. This lack of trust becomes a major obstacle to future relationships for Dax and Giselle. Can they possibly learn to trust each other? Will they open their hearts to love once again?
Stiles has a very interesting style of writing in Epic Lies. By chapter, she alternates Dax and Giselle’s first person points of view, while also alternating between writing chapters in the past and present. Fate is a huge theme in Epic Lies. Throughout this story, I noticed coincidences, possible connections between Dax and Giselle which kept me guessing and gave Epic Lies the feel of a mystery. By using this style of writing, Stiles reveals events in their pasts – what shaped Dax and Giselle as individuals – while also allowing readers the pleasure of enjoying their budding romance in the present.
Since the beginning of her writing career, I’ve read each novel written by Trudy Stiles. Each story is completely unique, and she doesn’t shy away from difficult topics. In Epic Lies this topic is rape. I’m sharing this with readers because I know rape can be an emotional trigger. There are parts of this story that were painfully hard for me to read, but I also found a large measure of joy, happiness and satisfaction from reading Epic Lies. Epic Lies is dramatic, and I can promise it will take you on a non-stop roller coaster ride of emotions!
Although the Epic Fail series is a spinoff of Stiles' Forever Family series, Epic Lies can be read as a standalone novel. It’s also not necessary to read Epic Sins, the first novel in the Epic Fail series, prior to reading Epic Lies. If you have never read a novel by Trudy Stiles, I highly recommend that you give one of her two standalone novels – Epic Sins or Epic Lies – a try! Dax and Giselle’s story was a pleasure to read, and I’m excited to give this novel a 4.5 star rating!

I've been a huge Trudy Stiles fan since I found her way back at Dear Emily. All of her books always bring out so many different emotions, her characters are...Read more
