I don’t want you.
You mean nothing to me.
I never loved you.
I turned my words into swords.
And I cut her down. Shoved the blade in and watched her fall.
I said I’d never hurt her and I did.
Years later I’m faced with all the little lies, the untruths, the false realities, the damage I inflicted when all I wanted was to indulge in my obsession.
Lavender Waters is the princess in the tower. Even her name is the thing fairy tales are made of.
I used to be the one who saved her.
Over and over again.
But I don’t want to save her anymore.
I just want to pretend the lies are still the truth.
*Little Lies is a 105k standalone new adult romance.
For her first foray into new adult level romance, Hunting doesn’t hold back anything. The emotion, gah! I was crying almost immediately! So many emotions in this book. We’d gotten a glimpse into little Lavender’s life with some of the books in another series, but getting it from her point of view was so intense. And then there was Kodiak. Really we’d only seen him as a youngster too, same book as above, but he grew up into what seemed to be a total jerk. Sure, we knew he had issues as well, but it seemed like he wasn’t even giving Lavender a chance, and it wasn’t quite clear at first why he was acting the way he did, or at least to the extremes he was going too.
All of it fell into place as the story went along. It was so different having the characters from the Pucked series as parents and not the ones that were being all crazy and stuff, well, not more than you’d expect from parents really. But of course there was Lavender’s very sexual grandma, who obviously made sure that Lavender wasn’t shy about any of that, and so when Lavender was going to make Kodiak feel regret for what he’d done before she forgave him, that was just wow!
With all the kids from the families that we loved, there are so many different avenues Hunting could branch out to if she wants to keep these stories going. And I’ll look forward to reading every single one, because she is going to probably ruin me like she did with this one! I could barely put it down, didn’t want to do anything but read. I had a feeling about River pretty quickly. And it was proven correct. Of course because Randy Balls is my favorite of the Pucked guys, BJ would be my choice for the next story. His sleeping everywhere throughout this book was so funny. Love, love, loved this story, and all the feels it gave me!
