"Liar" by Lia Fairchild

LIAR - New Romance Release
The second and final book in the Liar series is live.

When all you’ve known are lies, how do you face the truth?

My past was a bitch.

Now it’s come back to haunt me. After months apart, Daniel and I are finally trying to make our relationship work. But my lies run deeper than either of us imagined. Lies so terrible I imprisoned them in the darkest recesses of my mind. Just when my heart begins to come alive, the lies seep out of the shadows…revealing secrets with the power to crush me.

~ ~ ~

Despite both of our troubled pasts, I want her…more than I’ve ever wanted anyone or anything. I’m determined to fight for her—to fight for us—even if it means facing my own demons. I have to reach Gray before it’s too late…before the truth completely destroys her.

Her head turned in my direction and her eyebrows rose before she bent to pull bread out of the oven. This woman would be the end of me if she didn’t stay away from trouble.
“Gray? You know I have to ask. I need to know you’re not in danger.”
She set the bread pan on top of the stove, removed the potholder and walked toward me, eyes narrowed on mine. “I like it when you want to protect me, Daniel,” she said in a silky voice that made my skin blaze. She stopped when we were toe-to-toe. “Come to think of it, that’s when you seem to want to be the closest to me.” Her hand trailed up my arm to my neck. “Maybe I need a little danger in my life to keep you close.”
I reached up and took hold of her wrist and pulled her into me. “Tell me,” I said, commanding her attention. “If this is serious, I need to know.”
“You need to know? Tell me, Daniel. Why do you need to know? What exactly do you want?”
What I wanted to do was put my lips on that little smart mouth of hers and show her just what I wanted. Every part of my body ached to touch every part of hers, but I needed to be patient. I had her number, and I wouldn’t be goaded into sex…no matter how pleasant the thought. I refused to start something I wasn’t yet prepared to finish. First, I needed to make things right.
I grabbed her chin, tugging her face close to mine. “What I want is for you to be safe and happy.”
Her eyes fell to my lips. It took everything in me not to take them right then.
“And what I want…” Her chest rose profoundly, pressing against mine. “…is for you not to burn my damn dinner.”

My Review of Compulsive

" God, had i totally blown this chance by getting too comfortable with Daniel? Maybe I should have selected a different doctor, a stranger who wouldn't look at me with understanding, pity and dreamy midnight blue eyes. But, a different doctor, I was sure, would only cause me to close up further. if I was ever going to take a leap of faith, it was now or never. What I want is to be happy. What I want is to feel somewhat normal........"

Gray Sky Donovan. Damaged by childhood trauma and too confused to unravel the mess its made of her life. Her friend Nathan from AA is trying to be her friend. Maybe there is more. Maybe Gray can't handle a real relationship. 

Forced into therapy that she fights she finds herself in front of Dr. Daniel Harrison. Attracted to the handsome doctor, but he's trying to remain professional. Not if Gray has her way. Dr. Daniel has his own issues and by chance his family is brought into  Gray's life. Gray mothers a young neighbor girl, Alyssa. Alyssa befriends Daniel's sick niece. 

Forced together outside of the doctor's office and then willingly in his office can they fight what they feel?  There are morals and ethics at work here as well. Who will cross the line? Who will change where the line falls? Can tragedy bring them together or will it force them further apart? Where does Nathan fall into this situation?

Gray does want help deep down. Maybe Daniel can be her friend and help her unravel the tragedies of the past. A bittersweet story. I read this one from beginning to end with hardly a stopping point. I loved the characters. I look forward to more of this series. There are secrets and they're not all Gray's. You won't be able to get to the next book in this series fast enough. Trust me. 

"I'm talking about bold-faced lies that spill from my lips as easy as the breath from my lungs. Lies that ruin people, lies that protect people, lies for the hell of it. I eat, sleep, and drink lies. I bathe in deceit. At one point in my life, I might not have recognized the truth if it bent me over and slapped me on the ass....."
