Everyone knew Alicia Harrison’s marriage to Ilya Stern wouldn’t last. They’d grown up on a remote stretch of Quarry Street, where there were two houses, two sets of siblings, and eventually, a tangled mess of betrayal, longing, and loss. Tragedy catapulted Allie and Ilya together, but divorce—even as neighbors—has been relatively uncomplicated.
Then Ilya’s brother, Nikolai, comes home for their grandmother’s last days. He’s the guy who teased and fought with Allie, infuriated her, then fled town without a good-bye. Now Niko makes her feel something else entirely—a rush of connection and pure desire that she’s been trying to quench since one secret kiss years ago. Niko’s not sticking around. She’s not going to leave. And after all that’s happened between their families, this can’t be anything more than brief pleasure and a bad idea.
But the lies we tell ourselves can’t compete with the truths our hearts refuse to let go…
Alicia Harrison grew up in the shadow of her sister. Jennilyn was everything that she wasn’t. Beautiful, outgoing and desired by Ilya Stern.
Ilya and Nikolai Stern were as wild as they were gorgeous. And they were also the reason that the sisters existed so very far apart.
Now many years and an unbearable tragedy later, she’s still buried under the weight of her guilt and her desire for a man that she can never have.
He shook his head, then pressed his face to the side of her neck. Holding her close. Breathing against her skin.
Nikolai Stern always dreamed of a life far away from Quarry Street. The minute he could escape, he was gone. From Antarctica to Israel, he ran to forget her face and the fact that she was now his brother’s wife.
But fate is as harsh as the Pennsylvania winter and sometimes going back is like never leaving at all.
“Sometimes you love someone who can’t give you what you want, so what can you do but love them enough to let them go?”
All the Lies We Tell is something totally different from Megan Hart. It’s more than just the story of two people – it’s the story of how tragedy can define the lives of so many people.
The cast of characters are as delicately intertwined as a spider’s web. They are both fragile and explosive in ways that will break your heart and heat your blood. It’s not what you would expect but it’s more than enough to keep you thoroughly obsessed until the very end.
