Sweet Little Lies
By: Michele Grant
Christina Brinsley has been burned by love, and that’s an understatement. Her third engagement blows up in the worst way just days before the wedding. As a result, she decides to dedicate herself to work and avoid relationships all together…until she meets Dr. Steven Williams. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Let me start by saying…I love a good romance. Sweet Little Lies was a great romance/chick-lit. I loved it. The main character of Christina Brinsley was real, raw, and familiar. I found myself simultaneously rooting for her and rolling my eyes at her in certain spots. But I knew her. Dr. Steven Williams? What can I say about this hero? I wasn’t prepared to fall in love with this character, but I did. He was the perfect man for Ms. Brinsley. He kept her on her toes AND gave her a dose of reality when she needed it. He loved her so completely, despite her flaws.
This is my first book by Ms. Grant, and I’m impressed. I’ll definitely be checking out her first novel, Heard it all Before. Ms. Grant took me on a journey with this book, exploring issues that are relevant to women and men in our community. Everybody knows a woman so jaded about relationships (with good reason) that she doesn’t see a good thing when it’s staring her in the face. We all know the ‘friend’ that you would never trust around your man. And we all know about expectations. This book had all of that and more. I didn’t want the story to end. In fact, I’m rooting for a sequel.
My rating: 4/5 Stars!
