“The human heart isn’t meant to be caged to someone who doesn’t feed it.”
Such an emotional and heartfelt story, I adored and appreciated how torn these two characters were and was just rooting for them to get their happy ending.
Sexy Scottish professor Brigs McGregor is literally drowning in a sea of guilt, after the death of his wife and young son in a tragic car accident, he is left feeling remorse that he was in love with another woman at the moment of their demise.
“With us, the truth didn’t just hurt. It killed.”
American intern Natasha Trudeau always knew their love was doomed, but just when she saw the light at the end of the tunnel, everything came crashing down and she plummeted into despair that took a long time for her to claw out from.
Fate brings them back together once again, when Brigs accepts a teaching position at Kings College, London, the very university that Natasha has returned to after her breakdown.
Love isn’t always black and white and Brigs and Natasha’s journey is a tough one, but their bond is so genuine and true that you only want the best for these characters and that is the sign of a good writer, when you really feel what they are going through and praying for everything to work out for the good.
Natasha was the star of this book for me, she was so relate-able and endearing, and I felt so much empathy for her situation and I thought she was very classy with the way she handled herself and Brig’s feelings.
“This was never about the destination, Brigs.
This was just about spending time with you.”
Brigs was gorgeous inside and out, his turmoil was so real and I loved how he was so alpha without being overtly so, he was so perfect for this book.
There were some beautiful quotes, I loved the writing and am certain that I will remember this book for a long time.
The Lie is a standalone second chance romance told in dual POV, past and present.
