B's World of Enchanted Books

One Tiny Lie - K.A. Tucker I received a free ARC copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. Thank you!How can I describe this book without falling apart? Without crying like I did most of this book? I just can't. Okay, first things first. This book is the sequel to Ten Tiny Breaths and it starts a few years after the events of that book. But this time, it's time to follow Livie. She starts her therapy with doctor Stayner (sort of) in the first chapter and then it jumps to the fall, when she arrives at Princeton and after a wild night with her new roommate Reagan and her sister, she wakes up in her room with a brand new tattoo on her back, almost naked with a naked guy in the room. She doesn't remember a thing from the night before. The guy turns out to be Ashton. A hot guy who clearly has some issues of his own and doesn't want her to be with him for reasons she doesn't know. Then she meets Connor, a hot Irish guy who is also Ashton's best friend. Connor obviouly would be the best choice, but why does she keep thinking about Ashton? It doesn't take long before Livie finds out that college life isn't what she'd planned it to be. Can she let go of her last promise to her father and with that the only identity she knows? You all know the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover."? Yeah, don't judge a book by its blurb, either. Just don't. Not with these books. They're waaaay better then you'd expect. The writing is so good, it's as if I'm reading the script of a movie or a TV-serie. It's really vivid and realistic, especially the conversations. The timing in this book is great. When you needs some drama, you get drama. When you need romance and/or passion, you get that. When you need some humor, there it is! Perfectly timed every single time. That's some great writing, I tells ya. Even though this book is about Livie, we see all the characters from the first book again. Of course we see Kacey again. She's still awesome and still together with Trent. They are so cute together now! Happy and in love. I loved that. I also love the bond Kacey and Livie have as sisters. Makes me want to have a sister all over again. Of course, Storm and Mia are still there. And Dan, Ben and Cain. But there are some new characters too. Reagan, Livies roommate. She's awesome. Kacey and Reagan together are hilarious. There's Ty and Grant, friends of Ashton and Connor. (More about those two later.) Livie volunteers in a children's hospital (I think) and meets two boys. Derek and Eric, two brothers, twins from 5 or 6, who both have cancer. Their story is so sad too, but not too sad. Can't spoil to much, but it's not a sad ending for them. And they're awesome. Doctor Stayner is still here. His methods of therapy seem odd, but in the end, he's a genius. I love him and I want him as my doctor too. Then there's Connor. Irish, hot, nice, funny and a gentleman. Yeah, he seems perfect doesn't he? I love me an Irish hottie. Gimme! Last but not least, Ashton. He's got some major issues and I'm not telling you guys anything about that, but it's really really bad. Horrible. Just broke my heart. But I really love him. I would choose him over Connor any day. This book made by heart break, crumble and shatter into a million pieces over and over and over again, but in the end, I was sitting here in my couch with a smile on my face. And my heart was healed. It was one hell of a ride, this book, but it was worth it. Sooo worth it.
