Alexander Noble doesn’t give a damn about anything or anyone. The heir to an unimaginable fortune, he’s never had to do a day’s work in his life, and devotes himself to pleasure and partying.
When opposites attract…
From their very first meeting, Nina knows Alex is bad news, and vows to stay away from him. But as their paths continue to cross, she can’t help being drawn to him – especially when he makes no secret of his interest in her.
Can they resist the pull?
For the first time ever, Nina is on the brink of following her heart. But can she believe Alex when he tells her to trust him? Or is he just another beautiful liar?
Book Review ~ ‘Beautiful Liar’ by Tara Bond ~ 5 Stars!
‘Beautiful Liar’ is not your typical ‘New Adult’ read. It’s dark, gritty and, dear God do the characters have to work for it. ‘Beautiful Liar’ made an explosive read!
Nina was a great heroine for our story. She is fiercely independent, hard working, and very rarely, if ever, takes time out for herself. Between paying money she doesn’t have to get her mother through rehab, and taking it upon herself to ensure that her younger sister doesn’t stay in foster care, she has enough worries. I think all readers will agree that the last thing she needs at that time is Alexander Noble waltzing into her life.
What I loved so much about ‘Beautiful Liar’ was how multi-dimensional the characters were. Normally, I fall in love with the hero of the story straight away, no hesitation, but with ‘Beautiful Liar’, Alexander had to work for my affection alongside Nina, making it all the more rewarding when he decides to fight his inner demons instead of drinking and partying alongside them.
There is a real emotional punch to this story, and it was both exciting and heart wrenching to see what these two people had to go through in their life, but it made for one hell of a story, and was written in such a beautiful way that any future books by Tara Bond will be on my definite must-read list.
