I must say that even after receiving a complimentary copy via Netgalley, I was still hesitant to read Black Lies. I read reviews that were not all bad or all good, but only left me seriously debating rather or not I should read this novel. So after going back and forth about rather or not to read this story by Alessandra Torre, I found myself in a conundrum of sorts and eventually decided to just do it. I read the darn book!
Cautiously, I tapped on the tittle in my Kindle app and proceeded and I was wowed. I loved the story of Lana and Brant and Lee. I mean wow with all that was going on… I mean I could not imagine being in a relationship, a love affair of this kind.
Lana loved Brant. He was smart, charming, funny, rich, slightly awkward, and a kinkster to boot. She loved Lee. He had that edge and that “je ne sais quoi” quality that made him dangerous yet addictive. She loved these men fiercely and the both loved her back in their own special way. However, with all of the ups and downs and being tossed upside down, this story was all about one woman loving one man unconditionally.
I digress, Alessandra Torre did an excellent job at weaving this complex tale of these star crossed lovers. The story was a complicated tale, but one that was well worth the mystery and the unraveling of one secret after another. This is one that I am sure to not forget and one that I will surely suggest to others to read it for themselves before believing the hype of a negative review.
I absolutely enjoyed reading this novel and would recommend that you Run and Read, Black Lies by Alessandra Torre, because you will not be disappointed. Job well done Ms. Torre…job well done!!!
