Review: 27 Lies: Luke's story by M.J. Fields

27 Lies: Luke's story 27 Lies: Luke's story by M.J. Fields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Release Date: October 16, 2016

I really liked this book. I certainly appreciated getting Luke's POV. As cold and unfeeling as he seemed in book 1, I loved getting his true perspective. He was incredibly deep as well as stubborn, honorable, protective and determined.

If you haven't read 27 Truths, STOP READING!! The rest of this review covers it.

I really wanted to love this book. I did. It almost got 5 stars. I loved how the author illustrated Ava's grief. Her loss was very realistic. Thomas was dead and she was still trying to come to terms with it. Like a lot of new mothers, she was running herself ragged trying to do it all. So yeah. She sometimes forgot to eat or bathe. Been there. Done that. And for a lawyer, she didn't use a whole lot of reason or logic. Her grief made her even more irrational and a tad crazy. All realistic. And I loved how her familly tried to be there for her. I loved how freaking awesomely Luke stepped up. Although Ava was set to become Mrs. Thomas Hardy, now that he's dead, she's got to figure out a life for herself and her twins without him. I loved all of this.

So why not 5 stars? I didn't like how T was almost demonized in this book. Not cool. Also the end was way too rushed for me. There was so much build up to Ava and Luke's second chance, yet when it came, it fell flat. It happened way too quickly and I failed to connect with it. I kept flipping through the pages, hoping and searching for more, and there wasn't any more. So that's why.

Once again, MJ Fields created a story about love and loss, hope and despair, and grabbing that second chance at love and at life.
