Such an emotional and heartfelt story, I adored and appreciated how torn these two characters were and was just rooting for them to get their happy ending.

Sexy Scottish professor Brigs McGregor is literally drowning in a sea of guilt, after the death of his wife and young son in a tragic car accident, he is left feeling remorse that he was in love with another woman at the moment of their demise.

American intern Natasha Trudeau always knew their love was doomed, but just when she saw the light at the end of the tunnel, everything came crashing down and she plummeted into despair that took a long time for her to claw out from.

Fate brings them back together once again, when Brigs accepts a teaching position at Kings College, London, the very university that Natasha has returned to after her breakdown.

Love isn't always black and white and Brigs and Natasha's journey is a tough one, but their bond is so genuine and true that you only want the best for these characters and that is the sign of a good writer, when you really feel what they are going through and praying for everything to work out for the good.

Natasha was the star of this book for me, she was so relate-able and endearing, and I felt so much empathy for her situation and I thought she was very classy with the way she handled herself and Brig's feelings.

Brigs was gorgeous inside and out, his turmoil was so real and I loved how he was so alpha without being overtly so, he was so perfect for this book.

There were some beautiful quotes, I loved the writing and am certain that I will remember this book for a long time.

The Lie is a standalone second chance romance told in dual POV, past and present.

Anyone who follows my reviews knows Karina Halle is one of my favorite authors; I have read all her books and will read anything she writes. However, this book made me more hesitant than any of her previous books. After reading the synopsis and knowing some of backstory from reading The Play, I had an eerie feeling the book would focus on a trope I usually shy away from reading. Due to my immense love of this author, I put aside my apprehension and dove into Brigs and Natasha’s world. What I found was a moving and beautiful story about forgiveness and a second chance at love.

“You are my salvation….You save me from the world. You save me from myself.”

The Prologue is haunting and drew me in immediately to Brig’s heartbreak. While he moves forward, it is evident Brigs is a shell of his former self. That is until until four years later when he once again sees Natasha, and the world stands still for both. I literally felt the tension these two share with one other; it is all consuming. There is so much pain and guilt but also intense love, and the tension is off the charts.

Second chance romances are a delicate balance of past and present. I prefer those books that focus on the here and now rather than the past. Halle does a tremendous effort with flashbacks throughout the story. It is never overwhelming or past driven. As painful as it was, it is important to learn about the events leading to their breakup. However, its a perfect balance of the two stories.

"We are forever surrounded by ashes. But we are fire. And fire rises."

I appreciate that both Brigs and Natasha are flawed. Both make mistakes in their relationship. However, it makes them human. It is easy to understand how quickly events can spiral out of control.

"She's slowly undoing me, thread by thread. I stare at her in near awe, this wondrous creature who wants to spend time with me. This rare and beautiful being who says I make her happy, maybe as happy as she makes me."

I realized after I wrote this review, how I started it the exact same way as I started my review for They Play. Word for word; that every time I finish a book by Karina, I am left in awe. How can each of her books be just as fantastic as the next? I don't know how she does it, but I hope she never stops!

The Lie is the newest edition to the McGregor boys. We first meet Brigs in The Play, introduced as Lachlan's brother. She gave just enough background that I knew as soon as the book was over, I had to have more of Brigs! So glad she was able to give him a story of his own. Once again though, this is a standalone, so knowledge of the previous books is not necessary at all. You wont miss anything, especially since characters from the first two books are not even mentioned in this one. And Lachlan and Kayla are background characters and Karina will tell you everything you need to know about them in this one.

Now, where to start? Brigs and Natasha's story is sad. It hurts and no one should have to experience the pain that these two went through. This story is about second chances. Getting to fix what was broken the first time. The prologue starts off in the past, where there is an incident so horrific, it sets the tone for the rest of the story. If the prologue doesn't gut you and suck you in where you can't stop then I don't know what to say. But don't worry, it's not all sad and tears. There is fun times to be had between the two. Not to mention, plenty of sexy times as well!
