Some Lies Are Worth Telling… (Blurred Lies by Elle Ellerton)

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

From the moment I read the blurb I knew that this was going to be my kind of book. I am a big lover of New Adult, there is just something about the innocence during the beginning of adult hood and discovering love…sigh! Elle Ellerton wrote Blurred Lies from Natalie’s point of view and did a phenomenal job of showcasing Natalie’s feelings and emotions. She drags us into Natalie’s anxious, scary, new reality of life without her parents after their accident. As readers we get to experience her highs and lows, confusion, past hurts, and see her love for Ryan grow. Ryan and Natalie together are smokin’ hot whether it is in the shower, back of a truck, or a bed, they know how to heat things up!

“I’ve waited so long for you,” he says, and I feel the same way. I don’t really understand what that means, but have no time to ponder it.”

Natalie has just lost her parents and her life has been uprooted to go and live with her brother and his best friend. She is anxiety ridden, lacks confidence, and is a total introvert. She spends her time writing memos and such for money and talking to a male friend in a chat room. I loved seeing Natalie blossom into her own person during the story. She became more confident about who she was and she began to shine. There would be no way that Ryan wouldn’t be able to see this beauty and not fall in love. She made such an awe inspiring transformation in the face of the grief over her parents where stronger people might have crumbled. She began to build a new life that overshadowed her former life and made her a more self assured, beautiful woman.

“I want to make everything special for you. I don’t want to rush. I want to take my time and savor every single moment. But, God help me, Natalie, I want to be inside you so damn bad right now it actually hurts.”

Ryan Landon is quite the enigma throughout Blurred Lies. He is sexy, sweet, guarded and everything a young woman like Natalie needs and wants. I fell for Ryan right away knowing he had a troubled past and the care he shows towards Natalie along with that ripped body, who could resist? I have this feeling that the mystery of Ryan will be unveiled more in Blurred Truth and we will see what makes this handsome guy tick.

“The words are always there on the tip of my tongue, begging to be said. When he’s kissing me I want to whisper it, and when he’s inside me I want to scream it.”

Elle Ellerton brings us a love story that has been developing over many years, surprises, and lots of passion. I highly recommend for lovers of New Adult. Ryan and Natalie will rock your emotional foundation and make your heart melt. Join me next week and hear my thoughts Blurred Truth which is Ryan’s side of the story. I am sure it is just as titillating and sweet as Blurred Lies.
