These two people were lost and in emotional pain, in varying degrees, but were so drawn to each other from the first meeting when they bumped into each other....literally. From that first meeting I felt the crackle and zing in the air around them. It's the kind of chemistry between the main character that lets you know up front that when they come together your kindle will melt and it did.
With books in this genre I know one of the ear marks for me is finding the next book boyfriend. This book reminded me that what I also love, is finding female characters that I can identify with and who despite their current circumstances and struggles will triumph. I love fighters and Pearl is definitely that-a fighter. She burrowed under my skin in the prologue and by the epilogue Pearl was in my heart. Pearl is a woman at a crossroads who has made mistakes and is paying for them in many ways. One big mistake is her current crappy boyfriend that makes me cringe whenever he's in a scene. Pearl is seeking redemption from her mistakes and she desperately wants to mend her relationship with her father and earn his trust. You immediately get the sense that Pearl feels unworthy of love and with each page turn I waited for her to gain her footing and gather her strength, self confidence and punt her crappy boyfriend out of her life.
Roman Evans SIGH. Yup I was all about Roman. He wasn't perfect but he came pretty close. He's an artist who spends his spare time teaching kids Art at a Community Center. He's also a protective alpha male. Did I mention he has whiskey colored eyes? 🔥🔥Eek. Roman has his own issues that he needs to put to bed. He too has secrets like Pearl simmering below the surface. Roman and Pearl end up working together at the center. The Community Center becomes a backdrop to their growing attraction and eventual love. Pearl needs a man like Roman who knows how to treat a woman and love her from the inside out. Roman needs Pearl to heal and forgive. This isn't just about heating up the sheets alone, but it's about a couple who find that once in a lifetime love and deep soul connection. It's stories like this that make me happy to be a romance reader. This author knows her way around words. She wields those words to ensnare you in the story and bind you to the characters. Speaking of characters, there are some delicious side characters that I hope to see in upcoming books like Isaiah Lawson Roman's best friend. So I haven't told you what secrets lie beneath, and I won't because I want you to take the journey of discovery and immerse yourself in a good book with depth and yeah sexiness. Enjoy the ride.
His second impression is quite different though, being introduced to the woman who's working off her community service by assisting him run his art class at a community center. Community service that she incurred from a DUI conviction and if there's one thing on God's green earth that Roman simply can't stand, it's drunk drivers. He's got his reasons.
Picking up a generation after her Finding Home Series, Rachel Caid pits these two characters not only against each other, but each against themselves. Each finding their own reasons to sabotage any potential that their mutual attraction might have of flourishing.
In a story that is very much a standalone even though it has the occasional familiar face for fans of Rachel's earlier works, it builds on themes of pushing forward and making the best of things contrasted with the occasional necessity of looking back.
Filled with rich and intriguing characters and at least one that you'll quickly love to hate, Hidden By Lies lives up to it's title with secrets abounding and truth and lies woven so seamlessly it's hard to pick them apart.
An emotional journey told first person from dual perspectives this one had me second guessing things right up to the end and I couldn't put it down.
“It’s amazing you can even see me from the back of your high horse. You are the most prejudicial, arrogant, judgmental jerk I’ve ever met.”
Rome and Pearl are two peas in a pod, but also oil and water. Both are head-strong and determined. Both have a past that haunts them. These bring out their greatest strengths and their most noticeable weaknesses.
"I’m ready to shed my costume and live my life without letting insecurities and fear dictate my every decision." No real
At the very beginning of Hidden Lies, my heart connected with Pearl. She made bad choices, but was genuinely such a great chic. First meeting Roman, he came off as a bit of a jerk. But, he was also a strong-willed, alpha-male who liked to be in charge.
"...we all have to find the road that fits our feet.”
This was not an easy beginning to a smooth love affair. Heck no! It was a love-hate at its finest. But you know what that means, right?!? All of that pent up frustration had to come out somewhere and when it did, it was HOT!
Pearl and Roman together gave us snark, frustration, and even some good chuckles as they slowly grew on one another. My adoration for these two was ever present, but at about seventy percent, my thoughts went to an entirely different level. Their reverent acts toward one another put a spin on love that lifted my heart up and made it glow.
"Now that I’ve tasted her, now that I know how perfectly her body fits against mine, I want more." No real
Hidden Lies was an angst-driven and addictive love story that helped the past be extinguished by the flames of two people's passion. I LOVED Roman and Pearl and that they had to fight to gain the beauty of love; it made it that much sweeter. I am so excited to get more of this series.
"We’re together. We’re in this deep, and I don’t want out. I want you by my side for every celebration, failure, and everything in between, just like I’ll be at yours.”
