What can I say about this book. There are not enough words to describe how truly amazing Lies and Lullabies was to me. I mean I can go and recite the whole alphabet on how truly fantastic this book was. Like I said, there are no enough words to fully describe this book. I was so excited for this book because I have been waiting for this book ever since I found out about. My other burst of excitement is that this book was written by Courtney Lane, who happens to be one of my favourite authors and who I always look forward to reading because she writes books that are simply mesmerizing and stretch the scope of writing.
Lies and Lullabies was a completely different story from what I usually read and that was what I loved about it. I mean I am so used to reading books with sex scenes throughout the book that I was pleasantly surprised that Lies and Lullabies delivered a book that lacked sex scenes but yet delivered an intriguing and captivating story. I am not going to try not to spoil the book for you because I want you to full experience this amazing book. Trust me this book will literally have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you guessing. What I loved more was the thriller aspect of the story. I was so totally engrossed. As always Courtney Lane always gives us a plot that has you thinking. I was pretty much shocked with the events of the book that they almost gave me 'What am I reading' look. Courtney Lane not only delivered on a unique story but she delivered a story that had depth and dark elements that truly made my heart pump so hard with excitement. I loved that Courtney Lane gave us a different approach to her story but yet still gave us a plot that I fell in love with.
Not only did Courtney Lane gives a mind blowing story but she gave us characters that were so addictive and dynamic. I usually say the characters make the book. Courtney Lane definitely delivered characters that truly were so magnetizing and so engrossing. I loved them Sugar was so interesting to me. I loved that she was strong and not a whiny characters. Although, there are times when I wanted to shake her to come to her sense and she did have some parts where I saw her vulnerable nature. Now Catch is another story, Never have I ever had a hero that loathed so much but just could not help falling in love with. He was dangerous. and a villain. His character was able to give me the biggest mindfuck. Everything about him was a mystery which added so much to the story.
Lies and Lullabies was truly an unforgettable and fantastic story that it has become one of my favourite books to read of 2016.
