She arrives into her friend's apartment that she was renting while her friend is away in Europe. One problem - her friend's brother, Blake, is also living there. Sparks fly and she knows that he's temptation in a bottle. Once you start drinking, you won't be able to stop until you're drunk and passed out on the floor. She blocks him at every turn, fighting with him and he fights back. He's this tortured artist who has his own pain and fights actively against any girl who wants more than just sex. Together, they are like oil and water. But you know, some things just want to be mixed.
Lila works in a bar until she finally decides to takes up on that strange businessman's offer. After all, he's one of the top people in the area of expertise that she wants to get into. And if Pierce Stanley wants her to apply, why not? She goes there, applies and finds out that he wants to interview her personally. This CEO of this company wants to interview her? And she's instantly hired. But she has this feeling that he wants more than what he's saying.
So she's stuck between a guy who promises to light her up with sex and a guy who wants to take her as a date to a party for the rich. Hot & Brooding, Reliable & Charming. Which one to pick?
Man I loved this book. But god, Blake drove me nuts. He's in, out, in, out and I'm not talking about sex. He's very on, off. Black, white. He gives Lila and me whiplash. I'm rooting for him, but at the same time, I hate this guy. I feel bad for Lila because he keeps changing the rules on her. I'm already anticipating the second book because gosh, I want to see how this turns out since this book ended on a cliffhanger. I hope Lila turns the table on him and sets him straight.
Pierce Stanley doesn't even need to be involved in the second book. He brings nothing to the table that he makes me yawn. It's far more interesting watching what's going between Lila and Blake. The safe choice is ALWAYS boring. I never go for the safe choice. Yes Pierce is the safe choice.
I had to take a couple days to collect my thoughts.
Here are the characters (in order of appearance) at play in Lies Unspoken:
Lila Fields..typical college graduate, dumped girlfriend, pretty, naive, young, sweet, fun loving, ready to take on the adult world...and boy does she.
Derek......Baseball jock, college sweetheart
Pierce.....Mysterious stranger, rich, sweet, alpha, hot
Blake......Mysterious bad boy, infuriating, hot, tortured soul, artist
Lila's story tugs at my heart..for different reasons. We meet Lila before she takes on the grown up world, after suffering a devastating blow. Her life is about to change in ways she never thought she would ever have to face. The future was planned out perfectly ...until someone changed their mind.
We first meet Lila when she is suffering a great loss and the set up is written so well my heart hurt for her. It's just the beginning of her story but I think as women we all know what she was feeling, we could feel it with her. Lila then starts her unexpected but expected journey. While on her way to the big city , devastated she is being forced into a life she didn't expect, a wrench or path is thrown in front of her. The author does a great job at capturing this scene , I just want to nudge the hell out of Lila at this moment...wake up woman HELLLLLLLO!!! What is right next to you? This is only chapter one and we have already met Derek and Pierce. Right here at this point I knew I was in for a heck of a ride with this story ,what I wasn't prepared for was the colossal roll a coaster ride this story would take me on.
O.K. I know there are some of you out there that don't like love triangles but I love them especially because they usually lead to angst, and this story is no exception...Angst with a capital A. I love me some angst. Angst for the hot, sexy, I really want to be with you and your best for me but I'm not quite sure . Angst for the hot, sexy, tortured soul that will only torture her soul. Lila has equally hot moments with both but just isn't ready to accept one of them. Yes there is a sort of love triangle but not the typical so don't let the thought of the three lined creature keep you away from this story.
There were at least two different times I could have thrown my Kindle, O.K. there were probably more but you get the picture. I get why Lila is ready to go down with the ship per say, it feels so right and so sooooo hot. A connection. That said, she is in total denial as well. There is no repressing or denying the heat she feels with another and she knows it but when she is away she pushes that out of her mind. Convinces herself its not as strong, maybe it isn't and I as a reader wanted it to be? There will certainly be readers out there thinking I'm crazy. That right there is the beauty of reading, each reader interprets the story differently and in cases such as these creates the inevitable teams. #teampierce #teamblake #teamderek
Not sure how each guy will be received by the reader but I do know I was #angryamy at the end of the book. I mean really she makes one mistake ...caused by you and what the heck???? Please tell me this is a BIG AWAKENING for Lila??
"I think every girl hopes she'll get her chance to tame a bad boy, to bring a soulless creature out of the darkness, but Blake isn't my salvation. There's not a part of him that's mine...there never was"
"Google should cover the background check if you'd like me to wait out here"
"They say the awful things that happen to us in our lifetime only make us stronger. I think they just harden us until we can't feel anymore"
"Don't become someone you aren't just to be with him"
Lisa De Jong switches up genre's for this book and she transitions seamlessly. She can write HOT and ANGST and a grown up story. She is able to capture the moments in an adult frame of mind and go with them. The conflict between "right" and "wrong" , for lack of better words or words that give anything away. So happy this author did this story right and has the second one ready to go for us this February 2015 just enough time to debate the boys with all your book friends.
