Sweet Little Lies -
Have you ever read a book where you want to shout to the world how great it is? Sweet Little Lies is one of those. Pru has a good heart and a kind soul. She looks after stray dogs, looks out for the homeless guy that lives outside of her apartment and lusts after the one guy that's all wrong for her.

She is a dreamer that's afraid to let her fantasies for herself become a reality. She feels deeply, gives herself abundantly and bruises easily emotionally. Perhaps that's what draws Finn who is responsible, caring and serious to the flighty, sometimes accident prone sweetheart. Their pairing makes for a great balance he's overly serious, she sees the bright side. They are kindred spirits in that when they give their hearts, it's fully. Can they convince each other and themselves that despite the odds, they are perfect for each other in all the ways that matter? The Heartbreaker Bay series is off to a wonderful start with Sweet Little Lies. It lived up to the heartbreaker status.
