Georgia is embarking on a new dream for her life. She’s left her long-time boyfriend, Kyle, back in DC as he turns into a workaholic that ignores her and found a beautiful house on the beach in North Carolina. As she dives into renovating, her best friends, Drew and Silas, come to assist. Drew brings her new boy toy, Gavin, and his best friend, Tristan. Tristan is a surprise for Georgia, he sparks something in her she didn’t know she was missing. Now, this story borders on cheating but in the end, I don’t think it really counts because Kyle is a jerk. Tristan has never had a long-term girlfriend, his mother left when he was a boy and this left a huge mark on his life and relationships. Tristan is shocked at what he feels for Georgia, now can he convince her to follow her feelings? Will Georgia be willing to accept that Tristan can settle down? Drew and Silas are amazing best friends and we get to experience their love lives while Georgia is trying to figure out her own life. This story had me up, down and all tied up in knots but I loved every minute.

So, I have to admit that I'm not always a huge fan of the love triangle. It's a really fine line between well done and, well, icky, and it takes a really engaging story and well-written characters to make it work for me. Happily, Adriane Leigh has done a great job with all of these things to give us her latest, SWEET ALIBI. I went into this book knowing that it had some taboo, triangly stuff, but I've read and loved Adriane's books before, so was really excited to see what she'd do here. First off, let me just tell you that I am in love with Tristan Howell. It would have been easy to keep him a one-dimensional sort of guy, the other guy, to make her heroine, Georgia, a girl that 'just couldn't help herself.' Nope. What Adriane has done is taken two characters, ones with baggage and flaws, and allowed them to have the experience of building their own story, regardless of what's come before. Is it messy? Sometimes. Does it cross lines? Definitely. Did the book edge into the 'no how, no way' area? Well, Georgia and Tristan definitely did things differently than I'd like to think that I would, but it was their story to tell, and I could not have loved it more. I really like that the book is broken into two parts, and is told from both Tristan's and Georgia's point of view. Adriane does a wonderful job of developing their story, both individually, and as a couple. As I was reading, I remember thinking, 'Dang, this book is long!', but I'm not sure that it could have been any shorter and been as enjoyable or as complete. It was impossible not to become completely immersed and invested in the characters and their stories, and I didn't stop reading until I hit the last page. The cast of supporting characters, from the d-bag Kyle, to Georgia's and Tristan's best friends Drew, Gavin, and Silas (oh, my gosh, I LOVE Silas! Every girl needs a Silas, I'm telling you...), help make SWEET ALIBI the enjoyable and unputdownable read that it is. I applaud Adriane for combining her THE MORNING AFTER/LIGHT IN THE MORNING duet, and adding bonus material, because this book is now one big wonderful book. If you're looking for a read to pick you up, draw you in, and not let you out of its amazing hold until you reach THE END, SWEET ALIBI is the one for you. Go ahead and add it to your TBR, but don't wait too long to dive in, because it is going to be one of your favorite reads lately, I guarantee.
