review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-01-21 12:14
Deadly Little Lies (Touch #2) by Laurie Faria Stolarz Review
Deadly Little Lies - Laurie Faria Stolarz

Goodreads Synopsis: Last fall, sixteen-year-old Camelia fell for Ben, a new boy at school who had a very mysterious gift – psychometry, the ability to sense the future through touch. But just as Camelia and Ben's romance began to heat up, he abruptly left town. Brokenhearted, Camelia has spent the last few months studying everything she can about psychometry and experiencing strange brushes with premonition. Camelia wonders if Ben's abilities have somehow been transferred to her.

Ben returns to school, but he remains aloof, and Camelia can't get close enough to share her secret with him. Camelia makes the painful decision to let him go and move on. Adam, the hot new guy at Knead, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn't. But when Camelia and Adam start dating, a surprising love triangle results. A chilling sequence of events uncovers secrets from Ben’s past – and Adam's. Someone is lying, and it's up to Camelia to figure out who – before it's too late.

 

 

Review:

 

This was basically like reading the first book all over again. She was yet again receiving threats, never mind that she was kidnapped before she again does not inform her parents or the police blah blah blah, there was no development in the story whatsoever! The dialogue is awful as it seems we get nowhere from the conversations between the characters, Camelia’s friends have their own family drama but all they ever want to talk about is her and Ben, so boring! Camelia also went back and forth between trusting Ben in the first book and then he saves her life for the second time so you think she’d fully trust him but no she still doubts him in this one, what more does she want??

 

The teachers at their school also just let bullying happen by looking the other way when students were pulling pranks on Ben and calling Wes names, what kind of school is that! I don’t believe that a school would just let this much destructive behaviour happen in real life. We were also introduced to a new character Adam. After only 3 dates, where all Camelia talked about was Ben, he said he loved her…hold up, what?! You can see how all this is really rushed in order to get to the conclusion of the story.

 

Everything wrong with the first book just carried over to this one, there was absolutely no character development, the story didn’t progress in any way, I can’t think of anything positive about it. I just can’t deal with this series, maybe it gets better maybe it doesn’t but either way I won’t be continuing with it.

My Review: Just as good as the first book!!

I really didn't see this ending happening at all. I was on the edge of my seat for this one! So many ways it could've went! ah!!

Not much else to say, same characters as first, same setting, same kinda plot :]

Overall, a great second book :]

Deadly Little Lies - Jeanne Adams Deadly Little Lies - Jeanne Adams The first two books by this author were really good but I've had problems with the last two and even this, the romance wasn't satisfying and there were times I thought of not finishing the book.

I couldn't see anything special in Carrie that would make Davros want her for almost a decade. She married a cheat and remained married to him.
Dav had bad family issues but somehow all the characters were one-dimensional to me. Dav was kind of a beta hero.

Read her first two books, which are much better.

Deadly Little Lies - Jeanne Adams This was a pretty good romantic suspense. I liked that the hero wasn't all uber-alpha (I can break things with my teeth and kill all the bad guys without breaking a sweat). Dav was a normal guy (although a billionaire) who did the best he could in the dangerous situation that he and Carrie found themselves in. They were both nice people. It could have been a little more exciting as far as the suspense, but it kept me reading. And I liked the secondary characters.3.5 stars.Reviewed in the September issue of Affaire de Coeur. http://affairedecoeur.com.

Deadly Little Lies (Touch, Book 2)
Deadly Little Lies - Laurie Faria Stolarz Ok..I ended up changing my review to two stars. The more I think about this book the more one thing really bothers me- The fact that Adam was getting Ben back by stealing Camelia away from him, but Ben is the one who didn't want anything to do with her when he got back to town in the first place. It just makes no sense because the identity of Adam was supposed to be surprising and suspenseful and it totally wasn't...because I had it figured out..and because Ben supposedly didn't want anything to with her anyways. So that's why the book was just "ok" for me. I think it was a bit of poor writing. It would have made tons more sense for them to have been a legit couple when Adam shows up..but they weren't so it wasn't even a huge thing to me. I am still into the story though and I want to see what happens next. Sometimes even predictable can be entertaining. :)
