Newt is Declan's best friend. He has always been there for him and always cleans up Declan's mess. Newt is used to the fact that all the girls fall for Declan and that he can collect the ones who haven't been chosen by him. Newt's father bought a big piece of land in Peppermint Vale and is determined to built a ski-resort. Not everyone is happy about this and some people are trying everything in their power to sabotage the construction site. Newt has never had any problems being second best, but when he meets Jazz he can't help but wishing that she would choose him instead of Declan.
Jazz is the local physician's assistant at Peppermint Vale's hospital. She lives a quiet life and doesn't do anything out of the ordinary. She once found love, but ever since she was traded in for a younger model she's keeping men away from her heart. When Declan ends up in her hospital, suddenly a lot of good looking men are visiting Peppermint Vale. Jazz isn't used to all this attention and decides to live a little. It wasn't intentional to get involved with those who are sabotaging the construction site, but she was pulled in before she knew what was happening. With so many secrets and possible lovers will Jazz be able the make the right choices?
Declan and Newt are totally different. This is why they probably are such a good match. Declan consists of nothing but self confidence. He's even arrogant at times. He takes what he wants whenever he wants it. Declan is irresponsible and expects Newt to clean up his mess. Even though these are all character traits I don't usually like in people, I still liked Declan. He isn't as tough on the inside as he pretends to be on the outside. He's loyal to his family and he'll do anything for Newt. Newt is a good guy and a true friend. When I was reading about him I thought about Newt as someone who's always stuck in the friend zone. Even though he's charming, girls look at Declan first. He's smart and passionate in what he does and I liked him straight away. They're an interesting duo to read about and I couldn't wait to find out more about them.
Jazz is a feisty redhead. She doesn't take any crap from Declan and I loved that about her. She'll put people in their place when they get on her bad side, which is an admirable quality. I did think of her as a bit naïve though. She lets herself get pulled into joining a sabotage group when she doesn't want to be involved. She also makes some choices I wouldn't expect from someone her age. This only made her more real for me, we all have flaws and nobody is perfect. I was fascinated by her and anxious to discover where the story would take her.
Love & Lies is a fast-paced and intriguing book about politics and all the people who are dealing with them on a daily basis. The love and lies will always come out when there are paparazzi on every corner and that made the story a entertaining read. I have also read the first book in the series and I liked it a lot that Elleby Harper writes about the same things, only from a different point of view. This made me fly through the pages, since I instantly recognized the situations. This doesn't mean the series has to be read in chronological order though. I loved to read about the political games and to learn more about what goes on behind closed doors. The best kind of love starts with friendship and this angle made the story believable. Elleby Harper has written a realistic story that took me back to the glitter and glamour of 1985. I'm curious about the other books in this series.
