I really enjoyed Loving the White Liar, it was unique and very realistic and although quite painful at times, it was a heartwarming story.
Hilary is living with her friend, working as a waitress. She is single and looking for Mr. Right. Realising that her life is going nowhere fast, she quits her job and vows to find her dream job. What she isn’t expecting is to find her dream man, right on her doorstep. She has experienced love once before and want’s it again, she is not happy to settle for anything less, so when she meets her sexy new neighbour at the communal swimming pool, she is happy when he asks her out on a date.
Jayden has been in relationships before, but never anything that has been lasting and he really isn’t expecting to find a woman who will put up with him forever. He suffers from ADHD and knows that he can be difficult to live with at times. This doesn’t stop him from pursuing Hilary though, and he proceeds to woo her – with the chemistry that they have it would be hard not to!
Their relationship is an up and down one, one minute Jay is the perfect boyfriend, and the next he is being hurtful and indifferent. Hilary is in too deep to just leave him though, and decides to fight for the true love that she has always wanted.
This story is about falling in love, and staying in love amidst the troubles of life. It’s about loving someone, flaws and all, and flaws that can’t be changed or that will ever go away.
“It’s so easy to love you, Jayden. Too easy.
It’s only hard when you won’t let me.”
It was a beautiful story, I loved Jayden when he was just being himself, he was such a romantic. it was painful to watch his outbursts but also heartbreaking because he just couldn’t help hurting the person he loved most. Hilary loved him so much, and although at first she didn’t really understand the true extent of his condition, she really stood up to the plate once she knew that life would always be difficult for them, and sought help in order to save their relationship.
“His poison could come at me in any form.
I would be its greatest contender.”
A great pair of characters, and a wonderfully informative story.
Loving the White Liar is a standalone, told in Hilary’s POV.
