One Tiny Lie

Pages: 336
Publication Date: January 14, 2014

In Ten Tiny Breaths we met Kacey and her sister, Livie. Their history is enough to bring anyone to their knees, but Livie has always remained strong for her older sister, Kacey.  Now Livie is off to Princeton and she is still trying to live her life as if her sister's life depended on it.  Very reserved, very together, and very resistant to change. Kacey knows this isn't healthy for Livie, and Dr. Strayner knows this isn't healthy for Livie, but unfortunately Livie is scared to death to start her life.

When Livie's roommate, Reagan, drags her to a party Livie starts to loosen up a bit.  She catches the eye of not one, but two men.  Connor, the respectable one and his best friend, Ashton, the bad boy. Between the pressures of college life, including her fun-loving and the attentions of two boys Livie is feeling pulled in several directions.  Will she be able to be a successful college student with all of the pressure she feels?  And which guy will she end up with?  The good boy or the bad boy?

As much as I enjoyed Ten Tiny Breaths, I enjoyed One Tiny Lie even more.  I liked Livie in the first book and I loved her in the second.  The whole setup of the book kind of reminded me of A Beautiful Distaster - a college student with both a "good boy" and "bad boy" love interests.  Obviously there are differences, but even the intense love story is similar.  I loved how Dr. Strayner made an appearance in the second book, too.  His influence provides that parental support that the sisters wouldn't have otherwise. It is good that she has some sort of accountability in the form of the doctor.   I also loved the complexity to Ashton, from his girlfriend to his mother and his relationship with his father,  he was an interesting character that I wanted to know more about.  Connor, on the other hand did not really interest me.  Maybe I have a "bad boy" streak in me, too.

Bottom line, even though One Tiny Lie is the second in a series it is not necessary to read the first one to get the full impact from the second story.  There is enough of a back story given and Livie's story is fascinating enough to hold your interest and make you fly through the pages.    If you are looking for a good read, One Tiny Lie is a great choice!
