A long time ago...
I was young and naive. I thought I could save the world. I thought that protecting those around me from hurt and pain was what I was born to do. She made me feel that way. Ava Links, the little girl who was too fucking stubborn for her own good. The little girl who absorbed the hurt and pain of everyone around her and tried to bring sunshine to them all. The little girl who didn’t give a damn if people picked on her about wearing a crown and tutu every day. A little girl who somehow looked at me, expecting—no, damn near demanding—I protect her.
I saw the pain she hid, and as I grew older, I understood that pain. The pain of being so much to so many that there is really never a “you”.
I took control of my life...
I had to get away from everyone who pulled at me in order to claim myself. When I became the man I was destined to be, I began to live. Then, one drunken night, Ava Links, no longer a little girl, said the right damn thing to me, and everything changed. After seven years of fucking her while home on leave with no expectations, now my life is out of control…
One bad dream, one I love you, one night of pushing her the hell out of my life, one drummer stealing her heart, and one explosion took everything away.
Lies are told. Lies are unraveling. Lies are going to destroy. These are my truths
This book was absolutely amazing, from start to finish I was sucked in and literally could not put it down, the only reason I did not finish reading it in one sitting was because I had to get up for work the next morning, otherwise I would have read it all at once.
The story and the writing in this book is very fast paced and will keep you hooked and feeling like you are right there with Ava and Luke as they go through the struggles of life.
Luke and Ava, whether they are together or apart, have taken a little piece of my heart and run away with it, these two have hurt and been through so much, the story was so well written that I forgot how little time had passed from the ending of book one to where book two picked up. Book one ended with Ava having her babies early when she learned of T (her boyfriend) passing and that Luke had been in an accident while on a mission ( he is in the army). While both Luke and Ava struggle to put their lives back together, Luke learns something about Ava and her babies that sends his world spinning again. Luke sets out to right the spinning of his world, and at the same time tries to help Ava bring her world back on its axis as well. Luke and Ava are so stubborn, each in their own way, and I spent half the book holding my breath hoping that Luke will be able to knock down all the walls that Ave has put up around her and the babies.
I am not ready at all for this series to be over, my heart has been torn apart (in a good way) with Ava and Luke’s story, through book one and two (27 Lies is Luke’s story and is book two in the series, book one is a must ready before book two), both of these books will be added to the shelf of my must reads, and Luke and Ava will forever hold a special place in my heart.
I would give 27 LIES: LUKES STORY 5/5 stars, if there were more stars to give I would this book is very deserving of more than 5stars. – Reviewed by Kendra Needs
