The Lies We Tell (The Four, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Lies We Tell by Becca Steele

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

Starting over after my father’s sudden death was bad enough, but the four boys who rule Alstone College, my new university, are determined to make my life even more difficult. One in particular. Caiden Cavendish. 

My nightmare. My shadow. My stepbrother. 

My dad’s death was an accident… Lie. 

My life isn’t in danger… Lie. 

The Four won’t bring mayhem to my life… Lie. 

I don’t want Caiden Cavendish… Lie. 




Eeny, meeny, miny, mo. 

The Four are coming for you, Snow.

The Lies We Tell

Steamy Bully romance with a dangerous twist!

Absolutely Fantastic book! It has the rich bullies, the nice girl, the intrigue, suspense and danger and to top it off a steamy romance. I loved every minute and could not put it down. I also can’t wait for more. “The Four” are the four richest and sexiest men on campus. Their families pretty much own the nearby town and do business all over the world as well and The Four are the top men on campus at Alstone college.

Winter Huntington has switched colleges before her sophomore year in order to spend time with the mother who left her at five years old. Her father died a year ago in a house explosion due to a gas leak, but Winter doesn’t believe it was an accident and is determined to get to the bottom of it. Prior to his death, Winter’s father had traveled to the town of Alstone a few times to see her mother and had started acting strangely immediately after.

Winter attends a party at the home of The Four after arriving at campus. Two of the Four happen to be her stepbrothers that she has never met. At the party all of the Four guys look at her with suspicion and hate, though she doesn’t know why. Especially the leader and hottest guy, her stepbrother Caiden Cavendish. Winter is attracted to Caiden from the start, but he shows nothing but contempt for her.

After having dinner with the her Mother, stepfather and two stepbrothers, Caiden and Weston, Winter sees that there is no love lost between her mother and stepbrothers. She finds that Weston doesn’t seem to have the animosity towards her that Caiden does. She also has a class with another member of The Four named Cassius and finds him to be much friendlier than Caiden and Zayde, who are still suspicious of her.

I don’t want to go too much into the plot, but it is interesting and combines the romance between Winter and Caiden with the intrigue surrounding her Mother and her Fathers death as well as Winter becoming fiends with the four guys. The romance is hot, the guys are terrific characters and there is a huge cliffhanger at the end.

I can’t wait to read the next book. I really want to read more about Zayde as well. He is described as extremely hot and one of the scariest guys Winter and her roommate have ever met. Winter says he has serial killer eyes. So that is just the kind of guy I am interested in reading about.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
