Blog Tours: Little Lies by H. Hunting


“H. Hunting pens a heartbreaking tale that leaves readers absolutely breathless from beginning to end. One of her best books yet!”
- Stacey Lynn, author

Little Lies, an all-new, angsty and emotional new adult romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting writing as H. Hunting is out now!

I don’t want you.
You mean nothing to me.
I never loved you.
I turned my words into swords.
And I cut her down.
Shoved the blade in and watched her fall.
I said I’d never hurt her, and I did.
Years later, I’m faced with all the little lies, the untruths, the false realities, the damage I inflicted, when all I wanted was to indulge my obsession.
Lavender Waters is the princess in the tower. Even her name is the thing fairy tales are made of.
I used to be the one who saved her.
Over and over again.
But I don’t want to save her anymore.
I just want to pretend the lies are still the truth.

        CHRISTY'S REVIEW: 


This book was so different than most Helena Hunting books, but in a good way. I loved the emotional and angsty story of Lavender Waters and Kodiak Bowman. If you've read the 'Pucked' series, Lavender is Alex and Violet's daughter, and Kodiak is Rook and Lainey's son from 'A Lie for a Lie'. Though having the parent's background is great and imo adds a lot to the book, this can most definitely be read as a stand alone.

Lavender and Kodiak used to be really close friends. In fact, Kodiak was her savior in a way. Lavender has dealt with intense anxiety and even some ptsd from a childhood trauma, and Kodiak was there for her. He was just a kid himself, but he got her in a way no one else did. When he moved away, everything changed for them.

I used to be the one to save her. Now I’m the reason she falls apart.

Lavender is now starting her sophomore year of college but this year she's not at the community college living at home. This year she's on campus and living with her older brother Maverick and her twin, River. She knew she might run into Kodiak, but she didn't expect him to be at her house all the time. Though maybe she should have, he is Mav's best friend. Things are not copacetic between the two of them. In fact, at times they're down right volatile. But then, things start to shift.

My favorite thing about this book was Lavender and what an amazing and incredibly strong heroine she was. Not only did she slay her own demons, she helped Kody with his in a way. I love that she didn't make things easy for him, that she made him work for it.
“I hope all the suffering was worth it. If you really want me, I guess you’re going to have to find a way to deserve me.”

I really liked Kodiak too, especially towards the end of the book and in the flashbacks. Honestly, it took me a while to really get his character and I think that was the only thing that put me in a bit of a disconnect with the story. Still, I loved both of these characters and the anxiety rep was fantastic.

Another great thing about this book was getting to meet so many of my favorite Helena Hunting characters kids all grown up. The possibilities for books in this world with this group are endless. I would love one about either of Lavender's brothers or BJ. I hope she continues to write them!

If you're looking for a love story that's a bit of a rocky road but will leave you fully satisfied, pick this one up. It's full of angst, emotion, family, friendship, and romance. I loved it!

  Blurb: How hard can it be? That was the question rolling around Larissa Mason’s mind just before she asked Hollis Hudson to be her fake boyfriend. It was only supposed to be for five minutes, after all. Granted, that was also before she felt his hand on the small of her back as he charmed the heck out of her family. She hadn’t heard his laugh yet either. And it was definitely before she saw the football god shirtless. Otherwise, she would’ve had an idea of just how hard some things could be. It turns out that pretending to be in love with a crazily handsome, somewhat enigmatic, and absolutely unforgettable tight end (that has an amazing tight end) is easy. Reminding herself that just because opposites attract doesn’t mean they’re forever is much harder. What they have isn’t love—it’s a relationship pact. Right?   

  About Adriana: USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author Adriana Locke lives and breathes books. After years of slightly obsessive relationships with the flawed bad boys created by other authors, Adriana has created her own. She resides in the Midwest with her husband, sons, and two dogs. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kids, drinking coffee, and cooking. You can find her outside if the weather's nice and there's always a piece of candy in her pocket.

Christy's Review: 5 stars

Choices. Everyone makes them. But mine would ruin us all.

I read Release by Aly Martinez earlier this year and it remains one of my top favorite books of 2020. When I heard we were getting Ramsey's sister's book, I couldn't wait. Nora's story did not disappoint. It was emotional in the best way, sweet and romantic. I loved this one!

Nora Stewart and her brother have had a hard life. Nora takes solace by the trees and creek in the summer, spending time away from her abusive dad. That is where she meets Camden. Nora is just 11 but finds a forever friend in him. The next summer when Cam shows up things are different. Nora's life is changed dramatically and that one cataclysmic event will change the course of her life forever in just a few years to come...

Nora and Cam only get summers together, as Cam lives a few hours away, but those summers mean everything to Nora and Cam both. This story spans many years and it is for sure a slow burn, but I didn't mind one bit. If you've read 'Release' you'll get to see some more of Ramsey and Thea's story, but if you haven't, you can definitely read this one as a stand alone. Martinez has a knack for writing these incredible heroes and Camden is one of her best yet.

Nothing makes me happier than a passionate romance that is friends to lovers and has all kinds of pining and where the couple truly doesn't want and never will want anyone else but each other. This was such a beautiful story of true love. Nora and Cam were meant for one another and no one else would do. Sigh. I just loved it so much!

If you're looking for a friends to lovers story with the swooniest hero and a heroine you can't help but love and root for, pick up Reclaim. Another 5 star favorite from Aly Martinez!
“You’re mine.” 
“I’ve always been yours,” I whispered. 
“Only yours.”

Excerpt

He wedged his large body beside me in the bed. On his side, he draped one arm across my middle, curling his other under his head. 

I watched him out of the corner of my eye, completely unsure if I was supposed to cuddle into him or what the hell we were doing. 

“This okay?” he asked. “You comfortable?” 

I was a lot of things. Confused. Lost. Overwhelmed by guilt.  

But because it was Camden, comfortable was one of those things too.  

As an answer, I rolled toward him and buried my face in his broad chest.  

His whole body sagged as he began stroking the back of my hair. “Nora. Nora. Nora.”  

In a way, Camden and I were strangers, but as his heart played in my ear, I felt two puzzle pieces clicking into place. A calm washed over me. The dark cloud of my betrayals still existed outside of Camden’s embrace; it just didn’t seem so ominous anymore. He knew all the dirty and broken parts of me and still came back, holding me as though he could keep me together.  

Sliding an arm around his back, I curled in close, shifting to tangle my legs with his. “I’m tired, Cam.”  

“I know,” he whispered, hugging me tight.  

“No, you don’t. Nobody understands. I’m a disease who infects everyone who gets close to me.” My breathing shuddered. “It hurts. Everything hurts.” 

“Do you remember our first summer together when a grasshopper got into the container where we held the extra worms? You screamed so loud when you opened that thing and it came flying out like a bat out of hell. It got on your shirt and then hung on for dear life. With all the racket you were making, the damn thing had to have been terrified, but he never jumped off. I had to peel it off your shirt, one leg at a time.”  

I gagged at the memory. “Thanks for reminding me of that. Awesome timing.”  

He chuckled and pressed his lips to the top of my head. “I’m the grasshopper clinging to your shirt, Nora.”  

Now, if that wasn’t some good old classic Camden Cole rambling, I had no idea what was. 

I tilted my head back, resting my chin on his pec, and peered up at him. “You do realize I have no idea what you’re talking about, right?” 

My cold, hollow chest filled with a warmth I hadn’t felt in years when he grinned down at me.  

“I genuinely thought you’d find your way back to me. A phone call. A visit. Anything. But as time passed and I got older, I realized I fell in love with a girl who had no idea how to be loved.” 

My stomach wrenched, and emotion made my vision swim. “Camden, I—”  

“No, just let me talk. Hear me out.” He tucked a stray hair behind my ear and let his thumb linger at my cheek, sweeping back and forth. “I know you love me, Nora. It’s flashed in your eyes every time you’ve seen me since we were kids. It’s like every light in the house suddenly comes on, but it terrifies you, so you spend the whole time we’re together running around, turning them all off, convincing yourself that you don’t deserve for people to love you back. But we still do it. Joe loves you. Thea loves you. Ramsey loves you. I’ll always love you.”
