Before The Lies 
If I had known from the beginning what he would do to me, would I have changed anything?
No matter what had happened with him I never would have been led down the path that brought me to my soul mate.
For that I could never be sorry.
I just wish I’d had time to make my time count.
I wish I’d been able to see her grow.
I wish I could have said goodbye, to have felt his touch one last time.
The other man in my life took that away from me but I would never change a thing.
Although he was my undoing he was also my saviour, I just wish I could have been his.
This is my part of the story.
Before The Lies is a prequel to Elaine May’s successful Truth series, although it can also be read as a standalone novel. Readers should be aware of its uncompromising storyline as it depicts the harsh reailty of Rosa’s story.

My Review:

3/5 Stars

The Truth Series

A suspenseful, romantic, twisted book that will make you happy it was remastered into one collection.  There was a serious cliff-hanger at the end of book one.  Book two takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.  There is also a bonus novella that was super sweet.

Before the Lies

This is a prequel novel to The Truth Series.  I can’t tell you a lot without spoiling things.  Read The Truth Series first (you don’t have to, but it reads better to leave the prequel to last).  This is a bit darker than The Truth Series, so be forewarned.

All in all, this series was suspenseful and romantic and has a sweet happily-ever-after with a great epilogue.
