A Beautiful Lie by Tyler Robbins 5 stars out of 5

Okay so I finished this book in one night and wasn't expecting to cry like I did.  This book was so well written that it kept me from beginning to end.  Not a dull moment the entire time.  Trip and Jesse are my favorite new couple for the moment until I read the next book, but seriously their passion is unbelievable.  The one person my heart went out to was Jesse.  He has gone through so much and it just seems like he could never catch a break.  If it wasn't for his sister Joslyn keeping him going then who knows what might have happened to him.  Jesse is also a wonderful by practically raising his nephew with his sister because of his sister's health.  Then you have his best friend Eric who has always been there for him and they act more like brothers than best friends.  Their bond is very strong which is admirable considering not many friends would stick around and do as much as Eric did.  Out of the blue comes Trip who is Eric's brother and has been gone for five years.  He is a lost soul who comes back home to find out what he wants in life.  Little did he know he got way more than he ever thought possible.  Absolutely loved this book and each character, and I was surprised that I didn't find a character to hate.  The fact that the story takes place in Texas and not far from Houston is cool, especially when the weather is described throughout the book.  Since I was born and raised in Houston I have a real sense of pride when a story takes place in Texas.  Happy reading!!

Book Description

Jesse Reagan has had more than his share of tragedy, and he may have been dealt another blow when, once again, cancer threatens the sister who raised him. Faced with the possibility of being left behind, Jesse vows to care for her young son, though he’s not convinced he can.

When Trip Cantrell returns to town, he’s blindsided the instant he’s reunited with his kid brother’s lifelong friend, Jesse. His inability to find happiness in the years he’s been gone, suddenly makes sense. Love’s been waiting at home all along.

Life begins to look promising, except for the fact that neither have come out of the closet publicly, and that’s not even their biggest problem. Someone has a secret so shocking they may never find a way past it.

Will they be accepted in their small Texas town, or will secrets, lies, and the threat of tragedy destroy everything?
