Micalea Smeltzer delivers a heartfelt and emotional journey of self-discovery, friendship, and love with The Lies That Define Us. Liam and Ari are an unlikely pair with an immediate chemistry that easily captivated me. From the start, I was addicted to their push and pull, Liam and Ari’s shared stubbornness lending itself to plenty of tension that inevitably built to steamy levels. Evident from their initial disregard for each other, the unexpected chemistry brewing seemed to unsettle them in a way that made me absolutely giddy to see how things would unfold. Ari and Liam were frustrating, entertaining, and undeniably genuine – taking my emotions on a rollercoaster ride as I experienced their journey alongside them. Well-written, thoughtful, and full of surprises, Micalea Smeltzer continues to wow me with The Lies That Define Us.

After meeting Liam in The Road That Leads To Us, I knew he was a character I had to unravel. Closed off to everything and everyone, Liam clearly held onto something painful that made him jaded. Micalea Smeltzer uses Ari to peel back the layers of this brooding character, unearthing a man with a kind soul and an incredibly generous heart. Ari’s personal journey affected me deeply. There is a darkness in her past that shows itself through small gestures, strange habits, and her timid overall demeanor. Micalea Smeltzer cultivated a character transformation in Ari that is absolutely stunning. When Ari and Liam’s worlds collide, they recognize a pain in one another that inspires an uneasy friendship. I absolutely adored watching that friendship expose something substantial and life altering, leaving both characters irrevocably changed.

Liam and Ari’s story is different from others Micalea Smeltzer has written.

This is different than what Micalea usually writes. Though there is a romance and a good feeling throughout, there is still a dark and mysterious undertone to it. I really enjoyed the first book in this series and that was where we met Liam. I was very intrigued about him and I couldn’t wait to find out more. He keeps his true self hidden from everyone-including his friends and hides away from his family. So I couldn’t wait to dive more into him. Though this story is not just about discovering Liam but also the heroine Ari (Ariella).
When we first meet Ari, she is hiding a major secret and keeping her past life hidden. Throughout the book, we get hints of her previous situation but we don’t fully discover what it it until later on. It was a total mystery and Micalea kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure Ari out. When Ari and Liam meet, you are able to see their dynamic and attraction. They are more alike then they thought even though they come from different backgrounds. It was great to see their changes throughout the book-both individually and together. They were amazing characters and I really loved them. Get ready for a heart-pounding ride. Micalea had me so hooked into this book-especially towards the end. I couldn’t read fast enough to see what happens next and how it will all end. It was just so good.

Overall, this was a fantastic read that pulls out all the stops. Micalea gets a reader invested in her story. This is a book you will be engrossed in and enjoy.

This is something a little different from Micalea. She doesn't go totally off the rails or anything, but it's definitely a darker read than her other work. But she tells this story beautifully and I was completely taken by these characters. There were so many times that I was angry with Liam, but as he revealed himself to us, I would fall in love with him again. And Ari was such a secret, but instead of giving up on her, you just kept wanting to know more. If you are a Micalea fan, you will want to read this one. And it may just become your new favorite.

This book was different compared to any other book Micalea has written. I enjoyed the mystery aspect, and even though I knew what was coming, it played out in a way that surprised me. When I first read about Liam in The Road That Leads To Us, I couldn't wait for his story to come out so I could find out more about him and the chip on his shoulder. There were a few parts where I questioned the believability, but overall I enjoyed this book and recommend it.

The Lies That Define Us was a great story, a darker and more suspenseful story by Micalea Smeltzer, but a really intriguing story that kept me hoked from the start to the end.

Liam and Ari are two characters who are both so complicated, and that is what makes them so imperfectly perfect.

While The Road That Leads To Us was much lighter and had an amazing pair, Liam and Ari too matched up to that bar and proved again that Micalea is a brilliantly talented author with a way with words.

Can't wait to read more in the Us series!

- Brownie points for that sexy cover! -

I Was Provided A ARC By The Author
(Possible Spoilers)

Liam Wade has distanced himself from his family over the last two years, he keeps his guard up and doesn't let many people get to close. He's be hurt and his trust shattered. On top of that he is the son of a famous rock star, having privacy is a challenge. With a passion for surfing, he's ready to make for himself in the surfing world, and a love for photography, Liam is happy enough to just do what he loves and keep everyone at a distance. That is until he said yes to helping a beautifully lost stranger. Ari has wormed her way into his thoughts and slowly started to break through his walls and see past his cold behavior.

Ariella "Ari" Geller is escaping a nightmare, running as far from a monster as she can. She is tried of being afraid and weak, but the monster she escaped from made her that way. With the clothes on her back and no money Ari has no idea where to go or what to do. When she meets, two generous people, Ollie and Talia, she couldn't be more grateful for all the help they give her. She suddenly finds herself with clothes, a job, and living in the home of a broken, angry guy. Liam Wade couldn't be more confusing to Ari. Even after all the help he gives her, Liam makes it clear with his attitude and his every attempt to push her away, that he doesn't want to know her. Ari didn't plan on staying in the same place for long, but meeting Liam Wade got in the way of that plan.

The Lies That Define Us was a great story, a darker and more suspenseful story than what I have read by Micalea Smeltzer, but still a intriguing story. Complicated and broken characters who have grown so much by the last page.
