Title: Before the Lie
Author: Kayla Greenwood-Robichaux
Oh what a beautiful story!
I loved the prequel – it’s really gripping and drags you straight in to the story. You’re then taken on a much gentler journey with the adorable Vivian and amazing Corbin.
They couldn’t be much more different if they tried. She is innocent, niave and introverted. He is quiet, calm and deadly. Her naturally submissive side is drawn to the quiet dominance that surrounds him and his unspoken ability to keep her safe and protected from this frightening world.
This is a beautiful story of falling in love, something we don’t all have the luxury of. Of comfortable nights out, time spent getting to know each other, the simple pleasure of holding hands while you walk. The things you forget are important when you’re older and your life is busy. This story really brought to the fore that love doesn’t have to be about lust, of course that’s a part, but it’s only a part and not the whole.
Corbin and Vi have both struggled with things to date and I liked how they seemed to soothe and compliment each other, despite the differences.
The characters are fun and relate able while still being engaging. The story is beautiful written and leaves you dying for the next book – for which I have to wait 😣
This is my first book by Kayla but it won’t be my last. I loved it!
It was love at first sight.
Not just for me, but for Corbin as well.
Our eyes locked across the room, and that was all she wrote.
But we didn’t rush things.
We wanted to do it right.
After all, we would spend the rest of our lives together.
The love of my life.
My soul mate.
He was the intense and fiercely protective soldier,
and I was his doting and faithful lover.
I found my happily ever after.
This was our story…
