USA Today Bestseller

"There is no doubt in my mind that this author nailed this genre! This book had it all. It was intriguing, romantic, suspenseful and not only that but this felt like more than a story, this book was like an adventure on pages and it was a journey I was on all the way!" - Totally Booked Blog

"I did not love A Beautiful Lie. Nope...I more than loved it! I fell so hard I hit something I didn't see coming. I hit something great. T.E. Sivec is able to exist on both ends of the spectrum and she does this flawlessly. " - Tough Critic Book Reviews

He saw her first, but his friend made the move.

She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.

They love, they crave, they lie.

Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other's joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.

When one of the friend's life is tragically cut short, it's up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth - no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.

Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.

What do you do when you find out your whole life has been a lie?

I liked the characters and wanted them to get together... But the rest meh... It was more than obvious that the author knows less than I do about photography...( I work part time in a photo studio as an assistant) the CIA ... NAVY SEALS and the Dominican Republic... In order for a book like this to work you need a strong narrative,,, this one bounces all over the place .. You have to go back and reread to figure out who is speaking many many times... Also since the CIA and the navy seals are portrayed as being naive and inept the plot might work much better as a comedy,,, the book is also about 50% too long... Why? Because it repeats itself over and over... .

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good story May 29 2014

This one has it all! Lots of action and angst, secrets and suspense, and a love story between a really likeable hero/heroine. I loved the twists and turns this story had and I thought it moved at a nice pace. If I had to criticize, one complaint would be that the switching POVs and the flashbacks were a bit jarring to the reader, but never in a way that was confusing. I will definitely be reading more from this author.

Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first book I have read by Tara Sivec.... This book had everything in it a girl could want in an awesome read... Romance.. action... apprehension...lies...betrayal... and of course guilt... throw some really hot loving into the mix and like me you will be in seventh heaven.. this book was wonderfully written..The author put her heart and soul into this book ... I felt as if I knew Parker and Garrett and I was with them every step of the way.. My Heart hit my boots many times.. I laughed I cried.. oh boy did I cry.. this is a book I will read again and again. I do not usually read suspense books..have to say this book blew me away.. this will not be the last book by Tara Sivec..
