Pretty Little Lies by Jennifer Miller | Review

A little lie can change the course of everything. . .

Like every other eighteen-year-old in love, Olivia has dreams of spending forever with the love of her life. Luke is all she’s ever wanted – until she overhears something she was never meant to. In a matter of seconds, Olivia’s heart is shattered. Olivia handles it the only way she knows how - she runs- leaving behind her family, friends and the boy she loves.

Seeking comfort and an escape, Olivia finds it in resident bad boy Deacon. He’s everything Luke isn’t – and that’s fine with Olivia.

Now, seven years later, Olivia is older, wiser and headed back to Chicago looking forward to a fresh start and reconnecting with her best friend Pyper. What she doesn’t expect, is to come face to face with the boy she left behind and discover that even though she may have left, her feelings for him didn’t.

Can Olivia put aside the pain in her heart and trust Luke? Will the ties to her past ever let her go, or will she continue to let her life be affected by pretty little lies?


I have been looking forward to this one for a while. I looove second chances and hope and all that jazz. It just makes my heart happy.

I really enjoyed this book, though it could be a bit predictable at times. It took me a wee bit to get fully invested...maybe about page 50 or so? After that I was in it completely though. And once Luke was back in the picture I was totally hanging on every chapter waiting to see what would happen!

Let's start with Pyper. I really loved her and the relationship she had with Olivia. Such a fun and perfect bet friend. I totally want a Pyper in my life. She made me smile and just brought such a great dynamic. Really she made me like Olivia more.

If you are a fan of awesome book boys like I am, you will loooove Luke. He's very swoon worthy. He's got the perfect amount of confidence balanced with the perfect about of sweet. He's really awesome and I know you guys are going to love him too!

While reading, I was kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. There was an air of suspense...not scary suspense...but there's a scene where Olivia says she is kind of waiting for the bad to happen. That she was afraid for some reason and I felt like that a lot.

All in all I so loved this and cannot wait for book two. I need it like yesterday people!!! This book made me laugh out loud and swoon and I am so glad I got to read it and give it my honest review!
