Goodreads Summary: Beautiful Lies

What if your family was a lie?
What if your name was a lie?
What if your whole life was just a pack of Beautiful Lies?

If Ridley Jones had slept ten minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the lie she used to call her perfect life. Instead, she’s in the wrong place at the right time to unleash a chain of events that begins with a mysterious package on her doorstep. A package that informs her that her entire world is just an illusion. Forced to question everything she knows about herself, Ridley wanders into dark territory, where everyone is hiding something.

Sexy and fast-paced, Beautiful Lies is a true literary thriller featuring one of the freshest new voices in years. Lisa Unger takes us on a breathtaking ride in which every choice Ridley makes creates a whirlwind of consequences that are impossible to imagine.

Review: 5 Stars

WHOA! How the f%ck do you come back from learning your whole life was a lie. Who DO you trust? I was just as confused as Ridley, then slowly it started coming together. At one point I was screaming at her to see how it all connected, though it’s easy to see it from the outside. 

And to think she’ll never know the full story…that’s the scariest part. I understand their logic and reasoning behind all this, but as with all good meaning things, it always gets out of hand and infiltrated by crazy people. 

Totally recommend this book, worth the read, short book, but pulls you into the madness.


Goodreads Summary: They’re Watching

Patrick Davis is a man with troubles. First his Hollywood dreams crumble and then his storybook marriage hits a snag. Now, DVDs start being delivered to his house–DVDs which show that someone is watching him and his wife, that the two of them are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden in their house. Then the e-mails start, and someone offers to fix everything, to take the mess his life has become and make it all right. Patrick figures it’s the offer of a lifetime. 

But Patrick couldn’t be more wrong. With every step he falls deeper into a web of intrigue that threatens everything he values in this world. Before he knows it, he’s in and in deep–and his only escape is to outwit and outplay his unseen opponents at their own game.

Just from the prologue it seems like it ends horribly, but it has to have a twist… Or do we slowly watch him make more mistakes… Patrick seems to have made one wrong choice after another and his life is just falling apart and now this DVD and stalking crap… I wonder how it will all come to an end.

OMG I thought this would all be beneficial for him, but I was wrong…I would go crazy, how else do you not go crazy??? Seriously so twisted and f$cked up…HOW WILL THIS END????? I AM FREAKING OUT.
