About this ebook

I am a liar.

I lie to protect myself.

I lie because I’m terrified.

I lie to keep a secret that would destroy everything in my life if everyone knew.

Holly is the new girl at school and my unwilling lab partner. She hates me because I’m one of the popular guys—one of the bullies who terrorize the unfortunate and the unpopular. For me, it’s who I’ve had to become to keep anyone from getting too close—close enough to see right through me.

When Holly finds out my secret, I have to do whatever it takes to keep her quiet—even if it means telling the most damaging lie of all—the one I tell myself.

I could not stop reading this book. High school can be daunting, all by itself. You never truly know what is going on in another's life. For Holly Ross, life presented challenges that resulted in a cross country, and cross climate relocation. For Nathan, Holly may present as another obstacle to be navigated, or will his truth be the one that binds them all. This is an exploration of all that motivates the young as they navigate the waters to reach adulthood along with a smattering of education.

This was a great 5 star read. Holly is a new student and she of course quickly learns who is in the cliques. When she meets Nathan, there is something about him that pulls her in, but he’s one of the popular guys. Nathan has a big secret that Holly eventually learns unexpectedly but she agrees to keep it to herself. A plan is put in place that ends up turning into a bigger thing than they expected. What would happen if Nathan’s secret were to get out? Overall I really enjoyed this book. It bring

About the author

Amy Argent is an avid reader and writer of contemporary romance. Amy can honestly say she writes day and night —clinical trial documents as a medical writer by day and contemporary romance as a novelist by night . . . and possibly into the wee hours of the morning. She has a PhD in Genetics that she agonized entirely too much over, but it did result in a fascinating day job—the details of which tend to creep into her fiction.

Amy can be found in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband, two teenagers, and two hedgehogs, where she’s most likely planning her next departure from reality —destination: Dragon Con, the closest Renaissance Faire, or the nearest book.

Amy has always been fascinated by the many ways people cope with the human condition. Her stories explore the emotional journey we take when adversity drastically changes life’s course, but being an eternal optimist, she’s found her niche in soulful stories with silver linings. In truth, they can always be found if one is willing to look for them.
