The Truth About Lies (The Truth Duet, #1) 


Truth: From over a thousand miles away, I watched on the screen of my phone as two men murdered my wife. And I was helpless to save her.

Consumed by hate and rage, I spent four years running from my memories.

Until a shattered woman gave me a reason to stop.

Cora lived in a nightmare, but through sheer force of will, she’d turned it into something beautiful. She had a smile that could pierce the darkest soul. And with one glance, she shredded mine.

Lie: I was only there for a fresh start.

Lie: I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Lie: There was nothing I could do to save her, either.

But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.


I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Wow! Having only read one book by Aly Martinez, The Fall Up, I have only really just dipped my toe into her fictional worlds so I was ready to jump in and feel more of what she could create for her readers. After reading The Truth About Us, her first book in her Truth Duet series, I was filled with a myriad of emotions and wanted to let them marinate a little before I shared my thoughts with all of you. This story is full of a mystery, suspense, and building passion and Aly drops you right into the thick of things and leaves you discover all the hidden crevices in the hero and heroine’s mind while their tale unfolds. I felt like I was drowning in emotions of desire, deception, and powerful love and yet I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!

Penn is surrounded by darker mystery than the ink covering his body with a soul that has been shattered by the loss of his wife and a mission that he plans on completing. That is until the equally broken Cora enters his sights and his heart and desires overrule his mind. I loved peeling away every layer of this dark prince to see the broken man that lies beneath who has more surprises up his sleeve than any reader’s heart could ever handle.

Cora has layers and layers of secrets that we get to unearth by bits and pieces in The Truth About Us. She comes across as a ruffled and fragile bird at first but you soon realize that she may be battle weary but she has a spine of steel with a heart that has not been hardened by the cruel life she has lead and the burdens she has had to carry. I don’t think I have ever met a heroine that has come from a life so desolate and ruled by despair and still see her hold her head up high in a ragged prized possession silk robe covered in blood and filth like she is wearing the finest garb and there to save everyone around her. She is most definitely not a damsel in distress but a woman who paves her own way and waits for no one to save her.

Aly Martinez delivers a pulse pounding, soul searching, unforgettable beginning to the Truth Duet that is sure to leave you a different person than when the story began. I highly recommend The Truth About Lies for a dark world that still cannot snuff out the brightest light and love. Penn and Cora will sear your heart and your imagination with just the beginning of their heartbreaking tale and leave you hanging by bloody fingertips on the edge of precipice waiting for their story to continue!

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
