The third book in the bestselling Wicked Bay series from L A Cotton
To the outside world, seventeen-year-old Kyle Stone has it all. A future playing the sport he loves, money and status, and his forever girl by his side. But Kyle's good at pretending; hiding what he doesn't want others to see. Because Kyle has secrets, the kind that can change everything.
Pretty, popular, and dating one of Wicked Bay High's rising football stars, Laurie Davison is living the life most girls only dream about. But behind closed doors, she feels like a fake. Keeping up appearances is exhausting, and the one person she should be able to turn to is the person pushing her away.
They say love conquers all, but lies destroy. And when the truth comes out, hearts don't only get hurt.
They get ruined.
*Wicked Lies can be read as a standalone but will be better enjoyed when read in series order
A Tense & Surprising 4.5 star Read. I Loved It!!! 💖
Well I can honestly say I've been hooked by this series & I was definitely looking forward Kyle's story. I wasn't so sure about Laurie, I had concerns she was going to cheat 😳 I should've known that this Author wouldn't have let such a great guy fall for a horrible person!! 😉
Kyle is funny, he's always ready to crack a joke to lighten everyone's mood. He loves 3 things deeply ... His family, Laurie & Football!!! Something has happened, since we were last in Wicked Bay, that has Kyle terrified that two of those three things may be in jeopardy if he can't put an end to what's going on. And all because he told one stupid, stupid lie to Laurie!!! 🙁
Laurie still feels uncomfortable that Jared & she had shared some texts after her fight with Kyle sometime before. On her part they were 100% innocent & stopped the second she realised that Jared hoped for more than friendship, she just can't seem to tell Kyle. A distance has crept between them, he's hiding something from her & she's terrified what it could be. She catches glimpses of something in eyes sometimes, but he won't open up. Committing to going to the same College seems to scary right now. She's worried she'll come second to Football & then all of the fame he'll garner. The trouble is she isn't interested in Berkeley & Pre-Law like her parents want either!!
With them both trying to protect the other from what are relatively small but uncomfortable untruths & secrets, Kyle & Laurie's relationship is put on the line!!! Both of their families are also put through some tests too, especially the Stone-Prince's!!!
I loved this book, it was tense & uncomfortable reading at times but in a good way 👍 I was shocked, at times, by Kyle's attitude but I'm so glad he tamed the beast!! We got to learn so much more about Laurie, I really felt for her!!
Do yourself a favour & 1 click this baby, It's SO worth it!!! An easy 4.5 star's ⭐
