Stella Gordon’s life is a lie.
She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the key witness in a murder trial, Stella is under witness protection, living a life she doesn’t want. No one can know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, her hot, enigmatic neighbour. But against her better judgement, Stella finds herself falling under Chet’s spell …
A storm is brewing. Is Stella really safe in Thunder Basin? And will Chet be her shelter, or her downfall …?
I received a copy of Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick from Simon and Schuster in exchange for an honest review as part of the Dangerous Lies blog tour. This has in no way influenced my thoughts and feelings about the book.
I’m a massive fan of Becca Fitzpatrick’s books, I read the Hush, Hush series when it first came out in 2009 and I have been a fan ever since so when I read the synopsis of Dangerous Lies I just knew I was going to like it and I wasn’t wrong.
Dangerous Lies follows protagonist, Stella Gordan as she lives a life that she doesn’t want, not in the slightest. Stella has witness a murder and consequently she has been placed under witness protection. The thing is; she doesn’t want to be there and she doesn’t like to follow the rules.
Stella. It drove the point home. Chet didn’t know me. He didn;t even know my real name. He sat there looking fustrated and vulnerable, cutting himself open for a girl who didn’t exist.
I have a love hate relationship with Stella. She can act like a 5 year at times but then I understand why. Her life has been ripped apart, all because she saw a murder. She is living in a place where she thinks she doesn’t belong. She doesn’t know anything about where she is living, doesn’t know anyone and she can’t keep in touch with anyone from her pervious life. But has time goes on she realises that she might just belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska.
I actually like when books are set in what I like to call country America. It’s nice getting away from the city, away from all the chaos. I also love it since it’s different to a lot of other books I have read or even TV shows that I watch.
Chet…Chet…Chet. Move over Patch I have a new Becca Fitzpatrick book boyfriend. Okay no Patch you can stay. But gosh Chet, how can you know love him. Seriously. I just cannot explain. You have to read and find out.
“I can’t think of a day when you haven’t been in my thoughts. there are a hundrend other things i should be thinking about, but I think about you”
Becca Fitzpatrick is pretty good at making book boyfriends, especially ones that make your heart skip a beat.
Then we have Carmina who is the cranky ex-cop that I just could not like at all. She got on my nervous so much and no matter what happens she was just awful to Stella. She never took into account how hard this is for her – she thinks that she acting like a brat but she doesn’t realise why. Although I came to like her a bit at the end. It’s difficult to like people when they are mean for so long.
Dangerous Lies keeps you on the edge of your toes, you think it’s going in one direction and then it flips. It’s like when you watch NCIS and at the start you have no idea what is going on, who killed who? But as the episode goes on; you start to put everything together.
All the lies though – holy – I just didn’t know what was real and what was lie. But that is what made this book awesome.
The thing I like about Becca Fitzpatrick’s writing is that it is easy to read and it flows from one word to another. However, It’s not easy in the way that you feel like you are being talked down to but it’s written so that everyone can read it.
Overall I truly enjoyed Dangerous Lies it kept my brain on its toes and was a quick read. Stella is a difficult character that you come to love, while Chet sweeps you off your feet. If you are a Becca Fitzpatrick fan you are going to like this book and if you are not well you are still going to like it as well. There is so much more I can talk about but I going to leave it like this.
