Was there even a question of if you would see a review from me for The Lies We Tell? I had never read anything from this author before, but when this book was brought to my attention, there was no way I could pass it up! The blurb practically screams my name! 

A group of hot, rich guys known as The Four that rule the school (college) attempt to make Winter's life hell for reasons unbeknownst to her. They warn her, insult her, key her car, and follow her around wherever she goes, but it's not long before she discovers that not all of The Four have such strong animosity towards her. Some of them even seem to kind of like her. 

Caiden Cavendish isn't one of them. He hates every breath she takes, and he has his reasons. Winter doesn't understand his hatred any more than she understands her insane attraction to him. They have intense chemistry that's undeniable, and you know how the saying goes. There's a thin line between love and hate.  

Becca Steele did such a great job with The Four! Each member has such a distinct personality that you will have no problem distinguishing one from the other. You won't have any trouble falling in love with any of them either. 

Caiden may be a bit of an asshole, but he always has his loved ones well being in mind.  Underneath his hardened alpha male exterior lies a big soft heart. It makes you just want to kick him in the dick and then hug the fuck out of him! The fact that he's gorgeous and sculpted like a greek god doesn't hurt anything either. 

Weston is the youngest of the group and Caiden's younger brother. He's a tech genius that the guys couldn't live without. Their whole operation depends on his skill. He's the most welcoming to Winter in the beginning, and they form an adorable brother/sister relationship almost from the start. 

Cassius is like a big, hot, manwhore, teddy bear. He's the comic relief in the story for sure. Despite his slutty ways, he's by far the most endearing of the four. I loved the way he was with Winter throughout the story, and I can't wait to see the right woman tame his horny little ass. 

Zayde is the most mysterious of the group. He's the definition of a bad boy with his tattoos, motorcycle, and danger practically radiating off of him. He doesn't say much, but when he does, everyone pays attention. If you're anything like me, he will have you intrigued from the second he's introduced. 

The loyalty these men have for one another, and the bond they share is everything. They are the number one reason you need to read this book! Hands down! Sure, there is mystery, suspense, violence, and possibly murder, but these guys are THE BEST THING about this book. 

I can't conclude my review without saying a little something about Winter. I gushed over the guys, so it only seems right. Lol Winter is a character that I sympathized with right away. Losing your father in such a horrific and sudden way is bad enough, but knowing your mother (that basically abandoned you) probably had something to do with it is next level awful. She may have needed to be slapped in the head a couple of times, but overall, she's a tough cookie that is ready to go to the ends of the earth to get justice for her dad, and that makes her pretty fucking awesome in my book. 

In case you can't tell, The Lies We Tell by Becca Steele was a hit for me! If you're a bully romance or academy fan, there is no way you should pass this one up! The characters are amazing, and the story is intriguing and full of steam and action with a big cliffhanger cherry on top. Put it on your tbr asap!

Before I knew what I was doing, I’d thrown the mushrooms into the pan and was stepping right up to him, so close that I could feel the heat from his body as he glared down at me. “You might want to wash your hands. They’re looking a little pink, King Caiden.” 

He stepped even closer, his body pressing into mine, and I suddenly found it difficult to breathe. “King Caiden, huh? If I’m the king, then get on your knees and worship me.”

A shudder ran through me at his low, harsh rasp. I met his dark gaze, seeing the barely restrained fury clear in his eyes, and I steeled myself, welcoming the anger that surged within me, smothering the lust. “Fuck you,” I spat through clenched teeth. “If you’re insinuating that I can suck your dick, I’d rather choke to death on my own vomit than have that anywhere near my mouth.”
