Luna and the Lieby Published 12 Dec 2018
|Luna and the Lie.pdf|
The problem with secrets is that they’re too easy to keep collecting.
Luna Allen has done some things she would rather no one ever know about. She also knows that, if she could go back in time, she wouldn’t change a single thing.
With three sisters she loves, a job she (mostly) adores, and a family built up of friends she’s made over the years, Luna figures everything has worked out the way it was supposed to.
But when one of those secrets involves the man who signs her paycheck, she can’t find it in her to regret it. Despite the fact that he’s not the friendliest man in the world. Or the most patient.
Sometimes there are things you’re better off keeping to yourself.
Luna and the Lie Reviews
I bought it as soon as it released. I read it in two days while hiding from my family. I have NO REGRETS!
Loved it. Every single minute.
I love Mariana Zapata, but I don't love everything she writes. Luna and the Lie was such a slow start. I don't mind slow starts, but the main characters literally didn't even become friends until 60% into the book. 60% INTO A 600 PAGE BOOK!!! Are you friggin kidding me? Then, the characters kept having the same conversations not once, not twice, but THREE times!!! Why did I had to read several conversations over and over again????
The positives and what saved this to be a three for me was the last 30% of the book or so. There was a decent dose of angst and the storyline picked up a lot. I just wish Zapata's books were all as magical as TWOWAM and Lingus.
Reminder time: Goodreads is where readers go to share their opinions in a safe space. So if I get a bunch of comments about how you love this book and I'm wrong, I'm just going to delete your comments (and possibly you) and keep on living my life.
I'll be honest here and just say that if I didn't know what to expect from Mariana Zapata's books... if I didn't know that she could bring all the feels with her slow burn... I would have probably dropped this book before I got to all the good parts. :| But bring it she did. But I feel like perhaps this book could have used better editing... maybe?
I don't know what happened but while a lot of sentences are a bit long-winded (albeit flow pretty well), some were just silly and some plainly didn't make sense structurally. I am talking predominantly in the first 30% of the book.
But I got all the feels and unique characters, so hey... :)
IT'S LIVE, PEOPLE.
omg I can't believe new MZ is imminnnnneeennnnttttttt.
There is just something about that cover. I cannot look away.
"Life was a gift—sometimes one you wanted to return, and other times one you’d want to keep forever, but it was still a gift."
Luna and the Lie is a masterpiece. A slow burn romance featuring a spunky heroine and a tattooed alpha male. Luna Allen, a car painter, has done everything she can to raise her three sisters by giving them love and a safe place to live. Working hard to escape the demons of her past, Luna has found solace in a mechanic shop where she paints cars. Her boss Rip is gruff and a man of few words and yet, he is quite protective of little Luna. When Luna finds herself in a disastrous web of trouble, Rip is quick to lend her a helping hand.
“I swear to God, you’re a fucking puzzle I thought was all in the box, but every damn day I find a piece or two hidden all over the place.”Told in multiple POV, Luna and the Lie is another Zapata five star read. A beautiful slow burn romance full of complex characters, a complex plot, and light action. The unique dynamics between Luna and Rip kept me glued to the pages and I absorbed each and every moment shared between them like it was a precious piece of perfection. Every single Zapata book is long and yet, when it is over, I always find myself desperate for more!
"Me and Rip. I’d take it. I’d take it every day of the year, forever.”Overall, Luna and the Lie would appeal to romance readers who enjoy a strong heroine and a tattooed alpha male whose friendship blossoms into a passionate romance! Luna is probably my favorite Zapata heroine to date and Rip and Luna together are EPIC! If you haven't read a Mariana Zapata book, I highly recommend checking her out. She is a brilliant storyteller who creates the most brilliant characters living and breathing in a flawed (and yet) beautiful world!
