    1. *An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review*Snagged it from Netgalley and was excited to dig into an Aussie novel. I don't remember when was the last time I read something by an Australian author. About a year ago, perhaps? I was extremely pumped for this story since the synopsis sounded awesome and come on! These are the type of stories I like when it comes to romance novels. "Todd." Paul touched his arm. Todd shook it away. "Bro, it was ten years ago. You've got to get over it.""Not [...]

    2. Original review posted here: yourentertainmentcorner.Initial ThoughtsUpon first reading, I didn’t realize The Lies We Tell is set in Australia. I’m looking at sentences, pulling out words that don’t belong, thinking “Something isn’t right here.” Yep, completely missed that I was reading an Australian author. Color me stupid. So with that initial mix-up, I was already turned off. However, I was intrigued by the premise of a girl who serves her time (though she doesn’t really go to j [...]

    3. I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewis book to me was 3.5 stars. it was a slow start for me and at first i didn't know if i was going to finish it or not. then finally it got enough plot for me to be interested and finish the book. its not a long book. it's like 125 pages or sois book is about a girl named Sia. She is a great artist. She has a studio and works really hard on her paintings. she even helps the elderly with a painting program so she can help them reco [...]

    4. Review Originally Posted at: Book FreakRating: 3.5 StarsWhat are you willing to do for your family?Sia would do anything for her family, especially for her father. At a tender age of sixteen, instead of enjoying her high school years, she ended up in jail. She took the fall for her father’s mistake. Suffered the consequences of his actions and the wrath of the boy she likes. For Todd Lansing Jr she was the reason he lost his father. It was the crime she allegedly did, that brought him to his d [...]

    5. ****************** This is 3.50 Rating**************Thank you to the Escape Publishing,Harlequin Australia and NetGalley for the free copy of book in exchange for an honest review.This is a writer that can write. I understand her normal genre is Science Fiction and Fantasy. This was her first try in the Romance genre. And though well-written grammatically, a couple of areas needed work. For me, the pacing was just a wee bit off. It feels like Todd Lansing, the love interest in this romance, is o [...]

    6. 3.5 starsThis is a quick read, but it’s got romance, some steamy scenes, and definitely emotion. The pace of the story is fairly fast, but works well with the length and the plot.Sia is a woman paying for the misdeeds of her father. She took the blame herself to save him. Unfortunately it also ruined her relationship with him and Todd, the boy she was crushing on. It has taken her a while, but she has recouped her reputation in the town, along with Todd’s mom and brother. At first I thought [...]

    7. At it’s core, The Lies We Tell is your run of the mill New Adult romance.It starts with some drama [Todd hates Sia because he believes she caused his father's death].There is inevitable chemistry [Todd flirts with Sia before he realizes who she is].The initial drama is resolved, thereby creating even more drama [the chemistry is too much to stand and Todd finally realizes it wasn't Sia's fault. Sexy times ensue].And there are of course the sub-plots of Sia’s abusive father and the mystery su [...]

    8. **** 3.5 STAR REVIEW****The Lies We Tell is a quick read by Author Elizabeth Dunk (on a side note, this is an “alter-ego” of a sci-fi writer by the name of Nicole Murphy). Be forewarned it is a short read, and the plot moves accordingly!Sia, our female lead, is a hardworking artist who supports her drunk father and his three other illegitimate children. I found myself incredibly frustrated with Sia, as throughout the book she seems to let her father (and others) walk all over her. I wanted t [...]

    9. It took me over a month to finish this title. The story takes place in Australia, in a suburban town. The characters are likable but not necessarily outstanding in any way. This is fiction for mature adults, no explosions or mob involvement, no rock stars or extravagant getaways. It's about two people marred by their pasts exploring the feelings they had for one another as teenagers. Yes it is formulaic but not without some pretty clever plot points.
