 Escaping to Credence was supposed to be Becca’s shot at a new life, but some secrets refuse to stay hidden, and now that the truth is out, everything changes.


Everything.


The people she thought she could trust lied. The guy she thought cared about her kept her in the dark. And with no one to turn to, Becca finds it hard to unravel the truth. When she finally does, her past and present collide in a way no one saw coming.


The truth can hurt you … Some dares will destroy you.

EXCERPT

I pushed my way farther into the thick of
it, earning me a couple of hard glares from guys twice my size. Becca spun
again, facing the stage, and I moved behind her, leaving only a sliver of space
between us. It was perfect timing because
the song ended and the band went straight into something with less base. The
sea of faceless people swayed and bobbed their heads in time with the mellow
beat. Becca followed them, her shoulders swinging from side to side. Her black
sweater hung off one shoulder, revealing a khaki tank top underneath and milky
skin just begging to be touched. Without thinking, I slid my arms around her
waist and gathered her against me. Her body recoiled, and I felt Becca’s fight
instinct kick in, but I held firm, dipping my mouth to her ear. “It’s me,” I
whispered.

She relaxed into me and continued moving to
the music. I didn’t care that I looked all kinds of awkward because it was the
closest Becca had let me get since the night we’d been together. My fingers dug
into her hips at the memory, anchoring her to me, but she didn’t move. She didn’t
fight me off or give me hell; she just continued
to soak up the atmosphere. I didn’t want to push her or be a jerk, but I was a guy,
and she was here, pressed up against me, looking all kinds of hot.

Did she feel it too?

The pulse of electricity between us, the
spark?

Becca hadn’t been wrong when she’d accused
me of using her to forget about all the shit going on in my life, but it was
more than that with us. We both knew it, and deep down, I think that was why
she was so reluctant to give me a second chance.

We had a shot at something real.

Something messy and ugly and raw—and that
terrified her. Hell, it terrified me. Becca hadn’t grown up in a place like
Credence, but she’d ended up here for a reason. If she’d just let me in If she’d trust me with whatever it was she
was hiding, I could help. I could be
there for her. Maybe that made me a selfish bastard, dragging her into my
fucked-up life, but she made breathing easier. She made everything a little bit
easier, and I hadn’t expected—or even wanted—it to happen, but I needed her.
I needed her more than she would ever know, so if there was even a tiny chance she would let me back in, I would take it. Starting with right now.


 4TLOR Review ~ by Lou

 

What a brilliant conclusion to the Liar Liar duet. After book 1 ended on the most amazing cliffhanger, I have been eagerly awaiting the 2nd book. And LA Cotton didn’t let us down…

All of the questions we had at the end of book one, were answered during the course of Truth or Dare

I was concerned at the beginning that I wouldn’t remember what had happened in book 1, as it had been some time since I read it, but LA did a super job of giving us a recap, reminding us of events that happened, so before long it had all come back to me.

Yet again we have a story so full of twists and turns and some HUGE surprises along the way, meaning you simply won’t be able to put this book down until you have read cover to cover.

A real page turner, full of more lies, more drama, more angst and many more secrets.

Both Evan and Becca are hiding things throughout this story, with a story line jam packed full of events and excitement.

Becca is still suffering at the hands of Kendall, only the stakes in this game have just been upped!!

I loved the dual PoV in this book, getting chapters from both Becca and Evan. This really helped with the flow and understanding of the story and I enjoyed seeing things from Evans perspective too.

If you’ve read book one, there is no doubt you need to read book 2. And if you haven’t started this series then you need to. A brilliant mature YA story, full of all the high school drama you’d expect whilst delving a little deeper, a little darker, with plenty of romance and love thrown in too!!

4.5-5 STARS!!!
