I thought I had it all figured out...
And then he showed up.
Growing up in a small town, I had one singular goal — get the heck out. After high school graduation, I never planned on coming back.
But, sometimes life can throw some serious curveballs, and when I’m fired from my job, I go to the one safe place I can think of — my family’s inn.
And that’s where I meet him.
Aiden Fisher is a British artist who has taken up residence across the hallway. He’s wicked hot, a huge flirt and has one of the sexiest accents I’ve ever heard.
Suddenly the idea of this small town doesn’t sound so horrible.
But can I trust a man I just met... with my heart?

As Aiden and Millie’s mutual attraction sparks into something more, I found myself immediately invested in the unspoken, yet significant, connection between them.
I’ve been anxious to get my hands on Millie’s story ever since The Choices I’ve Made. She was enchanting, vibrant, and funny and I was wholly intrigued by the seemingly fearless fashionista who had left small-town life behind. J.L. Berg definitely didn’t disappoint, serving up one seriously sassy and incredibly lovable heroine. Over the course of this story, J.L. Berg carefully unraveled Millie, exposing the woman beneath the designer labels and letting readers see every flaw and vulnerability that made Millie so surprisingly relatable.
Aiden was unexpected, to say the least. He was charismatic and polished with a mysterious edge that ensured I was completely captivated. As the story progressed and Aiden opened himself up to Millie, I found myself falling hard and fast for the damaged hero with a big secret. J.L. Berg allowed the pieces of Aiden’s past to fall into place with expert precision, thoughtfully revealing the depth of this character with each passing page. Every bit the artist, Aiden experienced things with an intensity that demanded to be felt by the reader.
Aiden and Millie’s story is a whirlwind romance, and it was paced to be enjoyed as such.

Berg brilliantly depicts life By the Bay, her effortless prose and colorful imagery instantly transported me right back to Ocracoke. Brimming with sparkling dialogue, sizzling tension, and heartfelt emotion, The Lies I’ve Told is another can’t-miss-romance from J.L. Berg!
Loved this story!
WOW!!! That’s the first word I can think of! Why I’ve never read anything by J.L. Berg before is beyond me! This story was so, so perfect. I loved every word that was written.
The Lies I’ve Told is a stand-alone in A By the Bay series. It tells the story of Aiden and Millie. It shows how two crushed and hurting souls find themselves in each other.
My heart hurt for Aiden. I wanted to love and cuddle him yet scream and smack him! His fears and struggles were so justified. He just needed to take that chance, with Millie.
After reading, I found out that a few side characters already had their own novel. I will defiantly be catching up and reading those.
