[Review] One Tiny Lie - K.A. Tucker

Released: June 14th, 2013

Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters. She handled her parents' tragic death and Kacey's self-destructive phase like a full-grown adult. But underneath that facade, is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. "Make me proud," he had said. She promised she would and that was exactly what she did over the past seven years.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan to rock her classes, prepare herself for med school and get a good, respectable guy that she's going to someday marry. What isn't part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men's rowing team. He's an arrogant ass who makes Livie's usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn't want in a guy. Worse, he's best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fit Livie's criteria perfectly. So why can't she stop thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades and dreams she no longer thinks she can handle, plus her feelings for Ashton that just won't go away, she's forced to let go of her last promise to her father and find out who she truly is.

OH. MY. GOD!!!! I honestly think that this book was probably just the slightest bit better than the first one. I loved how complex the characters were in this book. The plot line was intriguing and the romance was plainly drop-dead-amazing. I think that it was titled One Tiny Lie because in a way, the main characters were somehow lying to themselves about who they are and who they want to be. But I don't know, that's just a thought. The book was so freaking hilarious but also comforting and deep, at the same time it was romantic and emotional. It was just the perfect mixture of everything I look for in a book. I was telling myself this while reading:

Livie Cleary is one of the most amazing women I've found in books. We see how grown up she really is after her parents' accident and how she has to be the responsible one. She's got this planned mindset and that her whole life has been set in a certain way since she was a kid. Then BAM! in comes the ambush from Kacey, Dr. Stayner and Ashton. She - who once had her life all planned in a pretty, little guidebook - is thrown by the contrast of what she expects and the reality of it.

And then there's Ashton. He's another interesting character with much more to him than what he lets people see. He's the average player who sleeps around a lot and is basically a cocky bastard 24/7. But when Livie realizes that he's mysterious and actually quiet, she becomes more concerned about him and what his life actually is. And ugh, honestly he's one of the crudest, hottest, cockiest and aerlkjwaestewr-est guys I've ever read about. But the complexity of his personality just draws us in. He's basically like this throughout almost the whole book:
