**5-STAR Review & Giveaway** BLACK LIES by Alessandra Torre @readalessandra



Brant: Became a tech billionaire by his twentieth birthday. Has been in a relationship with me for 3 years. Has proposed 4 times. Been rejected 4 times.

Lee: Cuts grass when he’s not banging housewives. Good with his hands, his mouth, and his cock. Has been pursued relentlessly by me for almost 2 years, whether he knows it or not.

I love 2 men. I want 2 men. If you think you’ve heard this story before, trust me – you haven’t 




I have no words.  Seriously, this book left me speechless.  The tag line, "If you think you’ve heard this story before, trust me – you haven’t", is so true.  I cannot think of one story like this or another story that I have read that was this powerful.  I am just going to say this book was fucking amazing (sorry Amazon)!  Really, there are no other words to say what I feel about this book.  I emailed Alessandra (I have stalker tendencies after reading amazing books) and could barely put into words all the feelings, emotions and things I wanted to say. Alessandra Torre is unreal.  She writes these creative, engaging, addictive stories that give us characters so different than what we usually read that you can't help but burn dinner or ignore everything else around you while you are lost in this world she creates.  I fucking love her and have read (I think) all of her books and Black Lies?  It is the best book she has ever written (that is saying something because last year she wrote my favorite book of 2013, Sex, Love, Repeat) and right now, the best book I have read in 2014!  Black Lies is simply a MUST READ book.  

Since this book had such a profound effect on me I will not talk about the story.  This is a book you really need to go in with an open mind and trust Alessandra to deliver a roller coaster of emotions and feelings (she knows what she is doing).  Black Lies is a different book than anything I have ever read and it needs to be started completely unspoiled, so don't go reading spoilers!  Alessandra Torre took this fantastic story and uncovered bits and pieces at perfect times, really sucking you in and having you discover things at just the right time.  Her pacing and telling of the story was brilliant.  The characters were fascinating, I craved getting to know more about Brant and Lee but the way I loved Lana's character was so surprising too.  I was at the edge of my seat reading this book and at one point at my daughter's dance class I gasped out loud and then had a tear run down my cheek (yeah, it was that good) when another mother wanted to know what I was reading and she bought the book right there on her phone to start reading it just based on my reaction to one scene and my inability to talk about what I just read without babbling on and on like a crazy person (I have issues, I know this).  

Black Lies.  I have no words to describe how well written, deeply emotional and crazy good this was, so I won't keep trying.  Just trust me.  You want to read this book, like today.  Black Lies is something that you are going to LOVE and wish you had read sooner.  Don't let this jewel sit too long in your Kindle, get lost in Lana's story and then email me so we can talk about it (I am DYING to talk about this book!!)  If you have never read a book from Alessandra Torre, you are in for a TREAT, but be warned you will want to gobble up her backlist after Black Lies!  If you have been a fan of Alessandra Torre (like me) then you are going to be BLOWN AWAY with her creative genius and awesome story telling.  Ok, enter the giveaway and then go 1-click Black Lies right now, you will not regret it.  Black Lies, I'm calling it now is my best book of 2014!
