I made a choice. A single lie that changed everything. In that moment, my life stopped spinning out of control. Not because I found my way, but because I hit rock bottom. Hard. Now, I have a second chance. An opportunity to turn my life around and become the woman I’ve been too afraid to embrace. And I’m taking it. I never thought I would meet him. He challenges me, spurs my desire to show the world that one night will not define who I am.
When the most beautiful blue-eyed blonde I’d ever seen slammed into me, my world was transformed. But the universe played a cruel joke and the woman of my dreams is a constant reminder of my nightmares. I lost someone once. A moment, a single action stole half of who I am. To allow myself to give in to my deepest desires feels like a betrayal and yet I’m drawn to her. So I lie to the world and ignore my heart until it nearly breaks in two and I can’t take it anymore. Live in the past or fight for the future? I made a choice.
Hidden by Lies is an intriquing story that will pull you in from page one. Pearl will suck you in with her story, her need for a second chance, a chance to prove herself to not only herself, but her father and other people in her life.
Roman doesn't know at all what to excpect when he meets Pearl, he doesn't know her, but knowing what she did he makes a snap judgement at first based on his own past.
What I loved about this book, most of all, was that Rachel Caid took something that happens in everyday life and turned it into an emotional read. She delivered a powerful story that started with one event but affected many people. By doing this, she gave me, the reader, a heavy dose of reality but in a way that I wouldn't have expected.
Roman and Pearl do not have good first impressions of each other - mostly because they are blind to the reality of each person - more affected by how the past changes the way the look at the situation. But as they work together and really get to know each other - their animosity changes and they become a sort of friends which then also evolves.
Hidden By Lies is quite an emotional journey for these characters. There were many moments I wanted to dig into the pages and hug them, and other times I wanted to yell at them in one way or another. It was also angsty perfection.
