#BookReview: That’s a Lie by Victoria Klahr #CLPBlogTours

That's a Lie CoverI received a review copy

Summary:

Seth is back. 

When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. I tried. Boy, did I try! But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more… 

Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that’s been growing since Seth came back. 

Do I even deserve to be loved? 

“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.” 

I came back for Josie. 

I knew I’d have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend. I can’t pretend I don’t want more. 

I’m willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved. It’s a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me. 

So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.

Review:

Josie and Seth are back with a steamy sequel to That’s A Promise. Now we get to hear more about the past from Seth’s point of view, which adds a completely different perspective to the story line.

Even though I read the first book in this series a few months ago, when I started the sequel I didn’t feel like I had forgotten anything at all. It picked up almost right where it left off. Seth is back from his trip and all he wants is Josie. He knows about with Blake did and soon enough finds out the rest of the story from Josie. He comes clean about being completely in love with her, and she also admits her love for him. However, Blake isn’t giving up easily. He wants to make Josie’s life a living hell after what she did to him.

I definitely liked having both Josie’s and Seth’s point of views. However, I felt like there wasn’t as much plot in this story as much as the first. I thought there were too many steamy scenes and not enough other events happening. Seth’s point of view seemed to just say how much he loved her and was attracted to her..but that was it. It just fell a little short for me. The ending was exactly what I thought was going to happen..but I look forward to what may happen next for these two.

3.5 stars
