The Truth About Lies (The Truth Duet, #1)


Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.

Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.

Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.

Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.

Lie: I was only there for a fresh start.

Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.

But that’s the thing about lies… you never know who to believe.

NICUnurse’s Review of The Truth About Lies by Aly Martinez

I absolutely loved Aly Martinez’s On The Ropes series, so when I was given the opportunity to read and review this book prior to release day, I jumped on it! And man am I SO glad I did! Now, before I go any further, let me warn you. This is book 1 of the Truth DUET, and there IS a cliffhanger. I personally HATE cliffhangers (I was warned before I read this book… I didn’t go in blind). If you are like me and hate them, wait until the 2nd book releases before proceeding! The Truth About US releases on Sept. 13th, so you won’t have to wait very long.

This book is just a little bit different from your standard contemporary romance story. Neither of the main characters are the typical cut and dried heroine/hero material. They are kind of a mix between true heroine/heroes and antiheroes. In their world, there is no black and white. It’s all made up of many different shades of gray. Cora is the house mom/guardian to an apartment complex of working girls. As in… corner working girls. She’s doing her best to keep them as safe as she can. And she’s hiding one (or more) secret(s) from a very, very dangerous man. Penn is out for revenge. He lost his wife in the most horrific way, and he’s out to destroy those responsible for her death. Their worlds collide, and lives are completely altered in the process.

NICUnurse’s Review: I am giving this one 5 stars! Yeah, I hate that it was a cliffhanger, but I knew I wouldn’t have to wait too terribly long for the conclusion. And trust me when I say, I am VERY much looking forward to seeing how Ms. Martinez works all of this out! She wrote this book in such a way that you fall in love with characters that aren’t your typical good guys. They live in varying shades of gray, but are inherently good. They’ve just endured things in their lives that cause them to make decisions that have no good outcomes… just less bad outcomes. Honestly, I actually had to wait a couple of days before I could even write this review. I had to take some time to process it all! Fans of contemporary romance with a bit of suspense thrown in will love this book! Grab your copy here today!

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
