They’re manipulators, liars, criminals, and I fell in love with them.I still love them. I love them more than I will ever love anything or anyone in my life. But I’ve reached my limit.
Aaaaand Pam Godwin just took things up a notch...or two. After leaving me desperate for more of Danni Angelo, Cole Hartman, and Trace Savoy with that cliffhanger of an ending in One is a Promise, my new favorite trio is back in Two is a Lie, the second novel in Godwin's Tangled Lies series. These books NEED to be read in order, and if you're assuming this is about a triad-type of relationship or that it's nothing more than another story about cheating, stop all those preconceived notions and trust me when I say that the series as a whole is not what you think it is. This author does not give her readers run-of-the-mill love stories, so suffice it to say, this one is different.
Remember, this review may have spoilers if you've never read the first book, so be warned! With Danni knowing the truth--or at least part of it--with the sudden return of Cole onto the land of the living, she's caught in between her feelings for him, which were still very much existent, and her feelings for Trace. But how do you choose between the man who continues to hold her heart and the man who brought it back to life? And just when Danni thinks that life couldn't be more confusing, secrets are revealed and the truth that was kept hidden unravels. For as much as she may love Cole and Trace, how can Danni choose between the two when she cannot trust either one?
Goodness, but how this sequel pulled me in two opposite directions, namely Cole and Trace. They were so different, yet I understood why Danni loved them as much as she did and why choosing only one seemed like such an impossible task. In the last couple of chapters though, when Cole's and Trace's secrets came to light, there could only be one choice for me, and that was Danni. After everything she had to go through, she should, at the very least, come out of it with her sanity intact, if not her heart. My sanity, though, is at risk because that ending? It. Was. EVIL! Argh! Now, the waiting game begins once again. Two and a half months! Five-plus stars for Two is a Lie. ♥
