Perfect Lie by Teresa Mummert Blog Tour

Title: Perfect Lie
Author: Teresa Mummert
Blog Tour: December 18th-30th
Release Date: December 17th, 2013

Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes all rational thought.

That's why Brock and I never had a chance. I had to start my life over. College was my
chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but
one person saw through my facade.

The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I still hadn't healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.

A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.

"I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.

So I'm trying very hard to write a spoiler review and the only words coming to my mind after readin that book are HOLY FUCKING SHIT. Holy shit holy shit. It's on repeat in my head. Okay. Deep breath. Calm Dee. Okay let me try again. So the beginning of this book is almost a riddle. I couldn't figure out what was going on. I was like Delilah, Lie, was givin us one tiny little piece of the puzzle, just to take it away. Then we have Abel. He's a conundrum himself. The way these two banter, the sass, I love it. It had me smiling. But then I would turn around and be pissed at Abel for what he was doing with Trish. I wanted to scream at him. He would get her ton open up, then bam... She's retreating and you're left wondering about her story all over again because her walls are back up. This book is like a treasure hunt. A big riddle. And let me tell you this. When you get that last piece if the puzzle at the end ... Glass will shatter, windows will break, you won't believe what just happened. That wasn't a curve ball, that was a freaking volleyball in the World Series. Total left field. Can not believe what happened. Can not believe it. I'm so stunned. And I freaking love it. I love that I wasn't anything like what I expected. I love that it isn't anything like what I've read before. Teresa has done a super job of keeping me on my toes guessing and not being remotely close to what is truly happening in the story. I was so shocked, I went back and read the last few chapters again. STUNNED!! I just. No words. Well done Teresa. I know some people may have an issue with the situation that impacted Lie, the scenario that scarred her so deeply, but I don't think as a reader you should let that impact your take on the book. So i stress, when you read this, look past the situation and focus on the story. I just am still so shocked. I won't lie.. I have a ton of questions.. How could he do that with Trish?? Why did he hold back his feelings? How could she deal with him and Trish?? Why didn't she ever stand up to Trish?? How does he know? Did he know her story? 

 I give this book 5 hearts.
