Lies, lies, lies; everybody tells them....
Greyson Keller didn't intend to lie; it just came out that way. So when the object of that lie shows up on her doorstep, she is confused, shocked, and embarrassed.
Calvin Thompson is an Ivy Leaguer, attending University over an hour away, playing rugby and basically not giving a crap. So imagine his surprise when some guy named Greyson begins rumors online that they're dating -- the only logical solution is to drive an hour and confront him...
Be there when Greyson and Cal finally meet face-to-face because. Sparks. Will. Fly.
Yes, sparks fly. That's why this book is intended for those 17+ Foul language, and sexual content.
This college romance is super sweet and angst free. It’s also a quick read. With fewer than 200 pages, it was easy to enjoy Things Liars Say in one sitting.
I was pleasantly surprised by the transition from anger to friendship to romance. The progression feels natural and unhurried despite the novel’s short length. I loved the texting and emails between Grey and Cal. The fun banter helps to develop their friendship.
There are a few questionable elements that prevented me from rating this story higher. The main issue is that I couldn’t understand the need for Grey’s lie in the first place. It’s such a minor problem that could have been easily resolved without an elaborate lie. Despite her initial dishonesty, she’s completely genuine and kind towards Cal. He attracts women and is an athlete at an Ivy League school. Why is he so insecure where Grey is concerned?
Grey’s friend becomes rude and hurtful out of the blue. Then suddenly they’re besties again, and their argument is never addressed. Why dredge up conflict only to leave it unresolved? If this plot point was more developed it could have benefited the story.
Cal and Grey have fabulous chemistry, and it’s their friendship that really makes the book enjoyable. Overall, I was entertained by this new adult romance.
