 The Truth in Lies by Jeanne McDonald


Life is a sequence of choices. Some are deliberate, others are forced upon you. This was a lesson that McKenzie Evans knew all too well. After the miscarriage of her son, she made the hard decision to leave her absentee boyfriend and move in with her former college roommate, Olivia Hamilton. That’s when she was introduced to Andrew Wise, a brilliant attorney, working for his family’s law firm in Sarasota, Florida.

To McKenzie, Drew became her salvation. He had a way of understanding her when no one else could. The closer they became, the more McKenzie found herself falling in love with Drew. He was everything she ever dreamed of in a man, and for the first time in her life, she felt truly alive. There was only one problem. Drew was dating Olivia.

With the help of fate and circumstance, Drew and McKenzie journey down a path of unrequited love and denied feelings. In the end, they must make a choice between their hearts or their consciences. In this one decision they discover that there’s always a glimmer of truth to a lie, that there’s a fine line between love and friendship, and sometimes you have to risk everything to gain everything. 

We were asked to do an honest review for this book and I honestly LOVED it!!! If you don't know me or my reviews it is very hard to get a 5 out of me.... I'm very stingy with them... LOL...
So here goes with my review...
This book sucked me in from chapter one, more like from the prologue and had I had a hard time putting it down when I had to do thing. It is an awesome feeling when you feel a pool or a connection to a character.

McKenzie Evans' life is a series of events that make and break her... the book starts with one of the happiest moments of her life only to have it ripped from her a short time later when she miscarries her son.  From there she becomes a shell of a person and is left alone by her boyfriend who seems more content to travel for work rather than console her in her time of need. The decision to leave him is one of the hardest decisions she has ever made, or at least she thought it was. 
Moving in with her friend Olivia seemed like a good idea, that is until Olivia's boyfriend Drew became her rock that she could lean on. Between Drew and McKenzie there is a sizzle, that crackles off the pages. Falling in love with Drew wasn't planned but it happened effortlessly. As the time went on in their "friendship" there were stolen moments and hidden feelings but Olivia remained a constant reminder that McKenzie couldn't have Drew. Finally choosing their feelings for each other over what people thought made for another of the happiest times in McKenzie's life, that is until a bombshell is dropped and again the hardest decision has to be made. 

If you didn't already you need to read this book and get lost in McKenzie's life and story. It is a 100% must read in my book!!!
I can't wait for the next book in the series!!
Enter for your chance to win many great prizes!
