Title: From Lies (New Beginnings #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Ann Anderson (Less Than Three Press)
Publication Date: December 2, 2015
Rafe is on the cusp of legally being an adult, which will finally allow him to pull himself and his sisters free of their mother’s clutches. Unfortunately, freedom also entails breaking the law by way of starting his own business under a fake name, and playing a role he fears he’ll never escape.
When Rafe meets with one of his primary buyers, he is made an offer too good to refuse—and refuses it, not willing to take an offer that would hurt people relying on him and the goods he provides. The lost opportunity and the constant despair of the role he must play compels him to confess all to a beautiful, compassionate stranger at a ball.
But the man he is so helplessly drawn to is instead captivated by Rafe’s sister, and Rafe wonders if he’ll always live his life trapped and watching everything he wants slip away…
So as much as I liked where this author was going with this story I was left feeling a little confused and like this story felt a little rushed to me.
Rafe has lied and manipulated people for most of his life to take care of his family and protect them from his mothers claws. He feels like he hurt people so once he sees his sister married he plans on leaving even though he has fallen for a man.
So I was left confused on what Rafe really had done so wrong when I felt like he was trying to protect his sisters and like everything went so fast with this story that honestly my head was spinning trying to figure out what was happening and trying to keep up with everything that was going on.
So I am sad to say this Novella was just not for me…
