Book 1 ~ Compulsive ~

I’m a liar.

I know what you’re thinking. We’re all liars.

But, I’m not talking about the lie you tell your Aunt Helen when she gives you that crappy sweater for your birthday. Or, even the lie you tell yourself when you’re sleeping with someone for all the wrong reasons. I’m talking about bold-faced lies that spill from my lips as easy as the breath from my lungs. Lies that ruin people, lies that protect people, lies for the hell of it. I eat, sleep, and drink lies. I bathe in deceit. At one point in my life, I might not have recognized the truth if it bent me over and slapped me on the ass.

And sometimes, the chaos that is my life gets me in a whole hell of a lot of trouble.

I was a master at keeping it all locked up inside me…until I met Dr. Daniel Harrison.

Book 2 ~ Liar ~

When all you’ve known are lies, how do you face the truth?

My past was a bitch.

Now it’s come back to haunt me. After months apart, Daniel and I are finally trying to make our relationship work. But my lies run deeper than either of us imagined. Lies so terrible I imprisoned them in the darkest recesses of my mind. Just when my heart begins to come alive, the lies seep out of the shadows…revealing secrets with the power to crush me.

Despite both of our troubled pasts, I want her…more than I’ve ever wanted anyone or anything. I’m determined to fight for her–to fight for us–even if it means facing my own demons. I have to reach Gray before it’s too late…before the truth completely destroys her.

~ My Thoughts ~

Intriguing … that was my first thought when I saw the advertisement for this book.  Interesting was my second thought as I read the blurb.  I was correct on both … Compulsive and Liar were not only intriguing and interesting, they were well written, fast paced and filled with emotion.

Both Gray and Daniel were perfectly constructed characters.  They both are strong, weak, self-assured, self hating, hopeful,  and filled with emotion.   It was so easy to relate with these characters.  I bonded immediately with Gray and I fell head over heels in love with Daniel.

While I want to say this isn’t a love story, it is.  Along with that, is the emotional baggage of both characters.  She needs an escape from the demons that play with her mind. He needs to help her stop using those demons and face the reality of why she lives life the way she does.  Add in a fabulous cast of characters, who play such an important part in the storyline and you end up with a interesting, heart warming, heart breaking and loving story.

The lies and the truths.  The secrets held within.  The twists and turns, confusion, desperation and deceit intensify the storyline.  The warmth, comfort and love give you a sense of peacefulness.  The sadness of loss and the hopefulness of what may be intensifies the reading experience.  What happens when the doctor helps the patient?  What happens when the roles are reversed and the patient helps the doctor?

  A uniquely told  story of life, love, family and friends that intrigues and delights.
