Ink & Lies
by S.L. Jennings
Release Day: February 9th, 2016

Synopsis

From International Best Selling Romance Novelist, Hope Hughes, comes a gripping, heartfelt tale of two lovers, fighting for the freedom to…

No. Scratch that. Too cheesy.

…two people, torn apart by the tumultuous tides of life, only to discover refuge in…

WTF? What does that even mean? DELETE.

…two people, confused as shit as to where they should be and who they should love and none of this means a damn thing because it’s all lies!

Lies.

I’m not Hope Hughes. I’m not some fierce woman romance machine. Hell, I’m not even a woman.

I’m a liar.

And while I refuse to believe my own BS, deceit masked in heartfelt phrases of love and devotion, I want to make her believe them. Because maybe—just maybe—if she can find the soul within my words, she’ll also be able to find the truth scribbled on my heart.

You see, I once lived for the perfect plot twist.

I just never expected to actually live it.

This is my story. Well, maybe her story. I just wish I could make it our story.

The one I’m still writing.

Review

Overall I really enjoyed Ink & Lies. This story actually had me laughing out loud. For me, the humor made this book. It was a story within a story and I loved how Jennings used the satire of a stereotypical romance novel to interweave the real romance between the two main characters.
I liked how the real characters mimicked ones we’ve read about in novels – some we’ve loved and some we’ve hated. Jennings does a good job of bringing us characters that have lots of personality. My only wish would have been more back story for the two main characters August Rhys Calloway and Fiona. I think with more back story I would’ve understood their thoughts and rationales on love and relationships. It’s not that their actions were unjustified, rather it didn’t always make sense when the two had a decade of knowing each other.
That being said, Ink & Lies was an enjoyable read. It was fresh, different and a great take on romance and the romance novel. Definitely Jennings best write yet and worth the time to read it.

AFRAID TO FLY by S.L. Jennings Review

Another great read to get our hands on…

AFRAID TO FLY by S.L. Jennings. Check out my review.

 

Afraid to Fly (Fearless, #2)Afraid to Fly by S.L. Jennings

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Afraid To Fly was my first S.L. Jennings book ever and I loved it. Won’t be my last.
While the subject matter and the main character, Dominic’s back story is quite a heavy subject matter, Jennings does a really good job of keeping us afloat without diluting the intensity of the story. Her variety of character personalities is one way she is able to do this. They are sincere character traits that we all can relate to on some level. I love that Dominic wasn’t an all out alpha or a total wuss. He was a man’s man but he was respectful and had a heart that would make yours melt. Also the inter-character relationships are viable and perfectly ordinary that you get sucked into their every moment together– laughing, crying, and everything in between. She also breaks up some really heavy moments with humour that fits the scene and the characters. It’s humour that you would totally cross into your own everyday life. there were countless times throughout the story that I thought to myself– yep, #truth or #thatsohappenstothebestofus
I also really enjoyed how Jennings tied in Dominic’s career with his back story.
If you’ve never read an S.L. Jennings book, you might want to change that status. I’m glad I did. I will absolutely read another one of her books. Her stories are well thought out, great timeline and she gives us enough back story to answer any questions but doesn’t bombard us with it that you feel like your stuck in the past. Her characters are well layered giving us multidimensional and relatable characters that aren’t crazy over the top or overly cliche.
If you want a story that gives you a mix of emotions and tugs at your heart strings with just enough angst that you just might toss your kindle but won’t dare because you need to know what happens next, then AFRAID TO FLY is one such story to get your hands on. S.L. Jennings is definitely an author that has been added to my “Definitely Read” authors.

D4/5
