REVIEW ➼ Tell Me Pretty Lies by Charleigh Rose


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, leaving only secrets and lies between us.
Now, I have to face him again, but the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.

Secrets never stay buried for long. Especially not in Sawyer Point.


This story took a while for me to get into it. When I started it I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, but around 25% into the story things started to pick up with the story for me. However, one thing throughout was I couldn’t connect to any of the characters. I don’t know what it was about them but I just wasn’t feeling it. That being said, the mystery of the story I did enjoy. It kept me going because I wanted to know what happened.

There is chemistry between Shayne and Thayer, you can’t deny that. It was the typical bully high school romance when it came to their relationship. There is the forbidden aspect to their relationship, which I enjoy. Overall, there wasn’t anything special about their relationship to me, but again, maybe it was the fact I couldn’t connect with the characters.

The mystery of what happened to Danny held my attention and kept me from stopping. At the rate it was going I had doubts there would be answers by the end of the book and this was going to continue into a second one. Answers are given as to what happened the night Danny died, however, more questions also come up.

Tell Me Pretty Lies is full of angst, steam, mystery and suspense.
