Review for Perfect Lie by Teresa Mummert

Title: Perfect Lie
Author: Teresa Mummert
Blog Tour: December 18th-30th
Release Date: December 17th, 2013

Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes
all rational thought.

That's why Brock and I never had a chance.  I had to start my life over. College was my
chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but
one person saw through my facade.

The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I
still hadn't healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel
struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he
revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.

A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force
me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.

"It feels like life ended when things went sideways."

"I don't want to fix you, Bird. I want you to fix me."

I don't even know where to start with this dark and twisty book!!  Lie(Delilah) has lived a hard life and is desperately trying to move away from it and start another new life.  She finds friends that don't mean anything to her and ones that don't care to know about her past.  Lie likes it that way, or so she thinks.  Then she meets Abel, a guy with his own problems and demons to tend with.  He is determined to break down her walls and get her to "feel" again.  Lie doesn't want the complications those emotions would bring to her life.  

"For the first time in a long while, I cared about something. I wanted to make you smile."

Lie and Abel both do messed up, crazy stuff to get pissed at each other! Abel does it to get her to realize she does have feelings for him and Lie does it to try and block out those feelings!  These two beat each other up emotionally and tried to leave permanent scars on each other's hearts!!! F'D up, if you ask me!!  

But the end….GOD the ending…such a mind f**k!!!  I never saw it coming and I am still reeling from the depth and slap in the face that it was for me.  It was totally out of left and right field!!  My mind is still trying to wrap itself around what happened and try to decipher any parts in the book that I might have missed that would have given me hints!!  What a great read!!

"You think if you keep saying it, I'll suddenly stop caring?  It doesn't work that way, Kettle.  Trust me-I'm fucking torturing myself here, and I can't stop.  I'm falling for you.  If it were that easy, I would have walked away by now."

"I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.
