From USA Today Bestselling author, MJ Fields, comes a gripping story of love and lies.
27 Lies: Luke’s Story (The Truth About Love #2)
A long time ago...
I was young and naive. I thought I could save the world. I thought that protecting those around me from hurt and pain was what I was born to do. She made me feel that way. Ava Links, the little girl who was too fucking stubborn for her own good. The little girl who absorbed the hurt and pain of everyone around her and tried to bring sunshine to them all. The little girl who didn’t give a damn if people picked on her about wearing a crown and tutu every day. A little girl who somehow looked at me, expecting—no, damn near demanding—I protect her.
I saw the pain she hid, and as I grew older, I understood that pain. The pain of being so much to so many that there is really never a “you”.
I took control of my life...
I had to get away from everyone who pulled at me in order to claim myself. When I became the man I was destined to be, I began to live. Then, one drunken night, Ava Links, no longer a little girl, said the right damn thing to me, and everything changed. After seven years of fucking her while home on leave with no expectations, now my life is out of control…
One bad dream, one I love you, one night of pushing her the hell out of my life, one drummer stealing her heart, and one explosion took everything away.
Lies are told.
Lies are unraveling.
Lies are going to destroy.
These are my truths.
Luke Lane is a broken man. He lost the only girl to ever really love him and then he lost his career after a mission turned deadly.
He’s back home trying to put his life and his body back together again when he overhears a conversation that shakes him to the very core.
Now it’s up to him to discover the truth about the paternity of Ava’s son, Chance. Because if the hushed rumors are true, he has a brand new reason to live.
Do I love Ava Links?
Ava Links feels dead inside. After the loss of Thomas – her true love and the father of her children - she’s barely holding on. She stays isolated from the world in the Brooklyn loft that once held so much happiness and prays that her secret is never revealed.
When Luke uncovers the truth, he’s going to make sure that he’s there for his son. But Ava refuses him at every turn.
Will he ever be able to prove to her that even though love can tear you apart – it can also save your soul?
I believe that he loves them. I believe that he will always be there for them. I believe in him. I believe that, for some reason, Luke Lane will forever be part of my life. But I am no longer a naive little girl. I am a woman, a mother. I have lived more in the past year than some live in twenty. I have lost the first man who ever loved me and wanted me for me.
How do I even begin to describe all of the things that this book made me feel? I should start by saying that I am and will always be a devoted fan of Thomas Hardy. In my mind, Luke Lane didn’t even come close to him and I knew that reading 27 Lies was going to inflict the most exquisite kind of pain. I was absolutely right.
MJ Fields fashioned delicate knives from her words and then she aimed them right at my heart. Even though I wished for the impossible, I wouldn’t have missed reading this one of a kind love story.
And in the end, the hurt was temporarily soothed by sweet Piper and her messages for Ava. So here’s to sunshine and butterflies and to finally finding your forever…
Exclusive Excerpt -
I watch as Dad and Tessa pull away from the curb, the place where Thomas Hardy, the love of my life, smiled at me before he took his last breath. I was so sure it wasn’t his last, and I was as sure that him being on life support would eventually mean he would wake up and tell me he loved me again.
