Ms. Stiles this is that book that grabs you by the nose and doesn't let you go until you are at the end and then, you are wondering where all the time went and if you can start over again, without having read it the first time.. I absolutely loved this book!! It is romantic and passionate, with characters that are so real and you relate to them so well, that you have no issue falling in love with them. You will need tissues, because Ms. Stiles makes you FEEL! I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys reading about characters with chemistry and emotion. I can't wait to read whatever story she has coming up!

Favorite Quotes: My name floats from his mouth, and I'm hypnotized. I don't think I've ever heard my name spoken with such masculine softness, if that is even a thing? Something happened the day you saved my life... I knew something was about to change... I knew you changed my history. My existence. I've been fighting my feelings for a few weeks. I'm struggling with what you mean to me. I know we've only known each other for a short time, but I feel like I've known you my whole life. Yea, you've dated a lot of @holes and some real losers, but you always find the one redeeming thing in those people and build on it. Even if one of them collected Star Wars figurines well into his twenties. Your father scares me... He may seem nice and sweet to you, but I can't shake the feeling that he will kill me slowly and painfully if I ever hurt you. My Review: Kismet, serendipity, fate, karma, destiny, the stars in alignment, when it is meant to be it is meant to be... all cultures have some form of this ideology. And today, I am exceedingly pleased that Trudy Stiles follows this tenet as well. Epic Lies was my first official outing with Ms Stiles and I am putting myself in nomination to be her biggest fangirl and newest cheerleader. I immediately added her entire Goodreads listing to my TBR the second I finished reading as I clearly savored this book from beginning to end. Written in my favorite form of dual POV, the storyline weaved back in forth over a decade while chronicling the hidden and forgotten connections, missed opportunities, and coincidental links in the characters' histories. The writing was thoughtful, insightful, emotive, easy to follow, steamy, and engaging. The characters were well fleshed out, highly likable, smart, somewhat damaged, yet still sweet, fun, endearing and quirky. For some reason, I took great delight in the scenes depicting Giselle's less appealing trait of haphazard snobbishness. The story found a good balance of angst and happiness, as despite the undercurrent and reoccurring theme of misplaced trust and betrayals experienced the main characters as they make their way toward each other, the contentment, shelter, and respite they found in being together overshadowed all their prior misfortunes. Sigh, this old cougar just loves the sweet and steamy - more please!
