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. It’s haunting in a way that gives this novel an emotional weight I never expected. The mystery of Ari’s past added a touch of suspense and plenty of intrigue, keeping me riveted and determined to uncover the truth. The secondary characters played a huge part in this book and I easily fell in love with each and every one of them. Liam’s close-knit group of friends was absolutely hilarious; they kept me laughing with their carefree attitudes and teasing banter. The easy camaraderie they shared and their unconditional support of one another spoke volumes for the kind of person Liam was and through these relationships Micalea Smeltzer was able to bring this character into sharp focus. The Lies That Define Us is truly a one of a kind journey that will break your heart and make it soar. You’ll fall to pieces and fall in love only to wind up wanting more.
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.
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! -
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.
