TELL ME PRETTY LIES by Charleigh Rose
Add to Goodreads:
Three things my mother acquired when she became engaged:
1. A brand new Tiffany’s ring.
2. A lavish home on Heartbreak Hill.
3. Three privileged stepsons.
The last thing I expected was to fall for one of them, least of all Thayer Ames.
Beautiful, brooding, and untouchable.
I knew it was a bad idea. He warned me himself.
But he was a thunderstorm, and I never could resist the rain.
It was perfect…
Until it wasn’t.
One night was all it took for our world to crumble around us, leaving only secrets and lies between us.
Now, I have to face him again, and the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.
Emotional roller coaster with a swoon-worthy romance and a side of mystery. Heartbreak Hill indeed! That’s where the pretty rich boys live and one not so rich girl with a broken heart. Shayne went from living in the mansion with those pretty boy stepbrothers, one of the forbidden variety, until tragedy strikes and one of the boys is lost forever. The cushy life explodes and Shayne is back in her old hometown until the unthinkable happens and she back in Heartbreak Hill, a place she thought she had left behind with her heart. But things are different without the love and protection of the rich boys and her former love is so cold. Mean kids reign at school until Shayne toughens up and takes control. And what’s up those Ames boys? So cold until they’re so HOT! Thayer is the ultimate black sheep, bad boy. So sexy with his broody self and hot body. Loved him even when he was mean! Shayne is a fantastic heroine as she comes into her own and finds her strength. Plus she doesn’t give up on her man. Thayer is meant to be hers and he knows it. But the mystery of what really happened to Danny hangs over their heads and Shayne’s brother, Grey is in the mix and not in a good way. The parents in story this are interesting and there’s not much parenting going on. All the Ames boys are swoon worthy especially the cute Holden. I loved his goofy side. I can’t wait for his story. And the tease of his involvement with Shayne’s bestie, Valen was killer. Valen is another terrific character in the story as she supports Shayne in the best way. Ride or die! This grabbed me from the beginning with moody, tense feel, the forbidden stepbrother romance, a murder mystery and the terrific secondary characters. The author did a fantastic job with this group of young characters and an emotional storyline that wasn’t angsty or overwrought. So worth the read and I can’t wait for more stories from Heartbreak Hill.
