Lie to Me is based on the story and history of the 2 main characters, Harlow and Marcus. This book is written in a dual-first person point of view and turned out to be a very easy read. Throughout their journey they are faced with many obstacles and tested emotionally with every turn they make. Harlow and Marcus share such a strong connection that no matter how much Harlow tries to fight it, she’s drawn to Marcus by that driving force. This was the first book that I’ve read from this author and I can’t wait to see more from this series and her others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

3.75 stars: LIE TO ME is the first instalment in Chloe Cox’s contemporary, new adult Redemption series. The premise follows our couple Marcus and Hollow as Marcus attempts to re-connect with the woman from whom he walked away-five years earlier.Was this review helpful?

Lie to Me is a written narrative with much of the storyline focusing on the back history and events leading to the present day. The reader learns how and why Marcus and Hollow met; their family histories and exactly where and when everything changed. But I will add, that the elephant in the room-why Marcus left-is not revealed until the final pages of the book. Because of the style of story telling-there is limited one on one time and conversation, until the story focuses on the present day situation.
Chloe Cox builds a storyline using memories, flashbacks and personal musings as alternating chapters are told from first person POV between Hollow and Marcus. There is definitely a history between our leading couple and one that faced many obstacles including the death of Hollow’s parents and Marcus’s father. But we will learn that not everyone and everything is as they seem, especially when Marcus returns following a five year absence-and the why will follow two paths both leading back to Hollow and her younger brother Dill.
Lie to Me is a story about heartbreak and betrayal; lies and telling the truth; family and friends; forgiveness and love. But it is also a story about one man’s desire to protect the woman that he loves and in doing so discovers that he has caused more pain and heartbreak than he could have possibly imagined.
