Delilah “Lie” had a connection so strong with Brock that nothing could sever it. What they shared consumed both of them, but it is what also caused their relationship to fall apart. When she moves away to start her life over, the past won’t let her go. She meets Abel and their relationship at times is a ticking time bomb, every time you start to think that Lie can let go of her past and open up to Abel she shuts down once again.
Lie has had a shit life to put it bluntly. She wasn’t wanted by her mother, who made sure she knew it. She was bullied in school so horribly that it broke my heart. She meets Brock and their friendship and eventual relationship brings her back to life but also breaks her in more ways than I will tell you. Brock was her protector, her first love and the one person who she thought would never hurt her. When she moves away, she reinvents herself but the past is never far behind. The people she thinks are her friends bully her just like everyone in high school did, well everyone except Abel. But even Abel can be such an asshole at times it makes you question why she still is attracted to him.
First let me say this. HOLY FREAKING SHIT WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ?!?! Ok now that is out of the way I will explain my little freak out. Perfect Lie is not at all what you believe. Is it a love story? Yes. Is it a New Adult book? Yes. Does it have hurt, pain, tragedy and angst? You damn well bet it does, but it also has so much more that I am at a loss for words on how to describe everything that is Perfect Lie. That loss for words is a good thing TRUST ME cause baby I so didn’t see what happens coming.
