In the instant international sensation Just One Night, sensible Kasie Fitzgerald unleashed her passions—and found herself—through an explosive affair. In Just One Lie, we meet Kasie’s wild and tortured sister, whose impulsivity and lack of self-control has set off a chain of events that changes her family forever.
Melody Fitzgerald is the opposite of the “perfect” daughter. The lead singer of an indie rock band, she is impulsive and creative, with a rebellious streak that both defines her and becomes her greatest enemy. Her lover, the enticing and unpredictable Ash, shares her free spirit and penchant for trouble. On the face of it, he seems to be her perfect match.
So why is she so drawn to her soft spoken, reliable drummer, Brad Witmer? How can a man who wears polo shirts and reads the financial section of the paper be of any interest to her at all? And why on earth does someone like that appear to be so captivated by her?
Before she knows it, Melody finds herself on a path of self-discovery, passion, and affairs of the heart. But will a dark secret from her past derail it all? Or will its exposure be the very thing that unburdens her heart and allows her to seek a future with the one man who loves her completely?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Just One Lie,” is the second in the “Just One Night” series by Kyra Davis. This book is about pain, the kind we inflict on ourselves and the kind that is thrown upon those who can’t stand up for themselves. What people do to cope can lead to self-destruction or triumph, this book is a little of both.
In “Just one night the book was hot, sexy and intense, this book has those moments but it’s a departure from the life Kasie lead compared to that of her sister Melody. Kasie grew up thinking her sister was dead from a drug overdose. She will learn the lies her parents feed her and how those lies were meant to control her as she grew up. Melody, who changed her name to Mercy, fought her demons to live a new life after hers was literary taken away.
This book is dark as we learn about addiction not only physical but how mentally addicted we can be to another, whether they are good for us or not. As Mercy becomes stronger we watch her change her life and fights not to let the demons back in.
I like this book, it kept me turning the pages quickly. I wanted Mercy to succeed the more I read about her past, I wanted Brad to be the man she needed and for her to have the family she deserved. I couldn’t help wishing she could get back at the parents who unbelievable horrible to her, only to find she doesn’t need that and that’s how she wins “the right kind of love”.
I give this book 4 stars
