I absolutely could not wait for Tell Me Pretty Lies to come out especially since Charleigh Rose was an author I just started reading from last year. And it was an insta-love for this author. I have to admit that this was a bit tough for me to get into this because of the genre/trope, alone. High school bully romances aren’t something I naturally gravitate towards especially since last year there was one that kind of warded me off of them for a while. So the cards were already stacking up against this, but I still wanted to try no matter what.
Even though it was tough for me to get into this, the more you get through the book, more of the truth is coming out. And you start to get a better understanding of why Thayer is being the way he is. However, to me, it was almost unforgivable the way he was treating Shayne. But, I’m personally not into the I hate you, but I love you thing. It kind of drives me nuts!
Overall, I think I just needed a bit more history of their relationship before things ended between them. That’s where a lot of the mystery lies of what happened that day and even by the end, there’s still a ton we don’t know. This seems like is part of a series because the major story arc was open to be continued. And Charleigh drops hints of what may be coming next.
It was an OK read to me, but I’m still invested in this series.
