YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR WORST.

“A twisted modern love story” (Parade), Tell Me Lies is a sexy, thrilling novel about that one person who still haunts you—the other one. The wrong one. The one you couldn’t let go of. The one you’ll never forget.

Lucy Albright is far from her Long Island upbringing when she arrives on the campus of her small California college and happy to be hundreds of miles from her mother—whom she’s never forgiven for an act of betrayal in her early teen years. Quickly grasping at her fresh start, Lucy embraces college life and all it has to offer. And then she meets Stephen DeMarco. Charming. Attractive. Complicated. Devastating.

Confident and cocksure, Stephen sees something in Lucy that no one else has, and she’s quickly seduced by this vision of herself, and the sense of possibility that his attention brings her. Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, if exposed, could ruin him, and his single-minded drive for success extends to winning, and keeping, Lucy’s heart.

Lucy knows there’s something about Stephen that isn’t to be trusted. Stephen knows Lucy can’t tear herself away. And their addicting entanglement will have consequences they never could have imagined.

Alternating between Lucy’s and Stephen’s voices, Tell Me Lies follows their connection through college and post-college life in New York City. “Readers will be enraptured” (Booklist) by the “unforgettable beauties in this very sexy story” (Kirkus Review). With the psychological insight and biting wit of Luckiest Girl Alive, and the yearning ambitions and desires of Sweetbitter, this keenly intelligent and supremely resonant novel chronicles the exhilaration and dilemmas of young adulthood and the difficulty of letting go—even when you know you should.

It’s ok

Stephen from the book is way crappier of a person than in the show. Definitely a sociopath. Lucy in the book is your typical damaged teenager and make decisions based off that. He totally love bombs every chick he is with and tricks them into believing he actually cares when in reality all he cares about is himself and his needs/wants. I think most people have dated a crappy person that might be hard to quit. That is basically the theme throughout the book and show. Luckily most of us grow up and learn from our mistakes.

Wanted a bit more

Lots of build up but not enough resolution. Great read though.

Disappointed

Wanted to love the book as much as I love the show. Thank goodness for rewrites! The book is awful, so much building for no real outcome. The male main character is a horrible person who never faces any true consequences. Lucy, the female lead, has the potential but she lets Stephen ruin her. Just awful. Stick to the tv series.
