Kyle Stone has the world at his feet. He has everything he wants in life . . . money, popularity, friends, football and Laurie. He always has a joke to share and is the life of the party. He’s also got a secret that is tearing him apart and could change everything if it comes out.
Laurie Davison knows all about secrets. While she seems to have it all, including Kyle, she feels like she is simply going through the motions of life. Her parents are absent most of the time and when they are present continually push her to make decisions that make them happy and not her regarding who she dates and what college she attends. She loves Kyle, but she can also tell something is up with him. And those secrets are driving a wedge between them and causing her to trust her choices in following him to USC for college or going where her parents want.
Kyle’s struggling to keep it together and protect those he loves, but by pushing them away it’s causing heartbreak he can’t handle. When the truth finally comes up will it be enough to ruin Kyle Stone or will those that know and love him best rally around him as he’s done for them.
Wicked Lies had so many plot twists and turns it kept me enthralled and sucked me right back into highschool. The Stone-Princes have more family drama than you can imagine and Kyle is put through the ringer in this book! Kyle and Laurie are a sweet match, but their relationship is definitely put to the test by not only the outside world but by the secrets and worries they keep from one another.
Along with Kyle’s struggles, we also get Laurie’s backstory which really gives incredible depth to her character! There were a few scenes where she finally takes control of her life that made me want to stand up and cheer for her. It was fun to watch her really come into her own as a young woman rather than a teenage girl.
For fans of the series, the author also gives us plenty of Maverick and Lo while still keeping the main story focussed on Kyle and Laurie. Without giving things away, I have to say that I have a whole new respect for Mamma P – Rebecca Prince after this book. She totally rocks. I’m also looking forward to see how the newest addition to Wicked Bay High fares next school year.
Wicked Lies has plenty of heat, lots of angst, unbelievable drama and a crazy look into young adult life in Wicked Bay. 5 stars
