TWELVE TRUTHS AND A LIE BY Christina Lee Book Review

B L U R B:
Aurora Jones has it all—a job she loves as a child and family therapist, supportive friends, and a decent place to live. What she doesn’t have is much luck when it comes to dating men. And not only are her choices terrible, she also hasn’t been boyfriend free since she was a teenager. So she places herself on a sabbatical of sorts. No dating for twelve months.

Cameron Miller has had a crappy year. His girlfriend fell for his best friend and to ease the pain, he drowns his troubles in more booze and women than he can count. When his buddies finally slap some sense into him and urge him to focus on his new position as a special education teacher in an urban school district, he decides to get his act together. 

Away from the prying eyes of their mutual friends, Cameron and Aurora agree to hang out once a week in their newly dubbed Chastity Club. Number of members? Two. It’s a chance to find solace, companionship, and something neither anticipated – a burgeoning attraction. But when Cameron invites Aurora to be his fake date at the reunion his ex-girlfriend and best friend will be attending, their passion ignites. What happens in Chastity Club stays in Chastity Club, right? Until they discover that a year of self-truths might actually lead them to true lo

R E V I E W:
This was my first book I've read by Christina Lee, and what a pleasant surprise it was. The characters drew me in. The idea behind the "Chastity Club" was adorable and fun, something new, so the book hooked me pretty fast. I loved the banter and the genuine pull between the two main characters. And what I thought was really pretty amazing about this book was that in the character's time apart, the both worked with children who faced struggles in their lives for whatever reason. Their lives intersected through their characters. I absolutely LOVED the compassion they both had for these children, how they fought for them and cared for them. I thought that was such an awesome way to develop these characters further and really get a feel for the kind of people they were. 

The characters spent time getting to know one another, they fell slowly but they fell hard, and it was a beautiful thing to be a part of. This book, while following the romance genre pattern pretty straight down the line, it felt different, unique, and I really thoroughly enjoyed it. 

Mother, wife, reader, dreamer. Christina lives in the Midwest with her husband and son--her two favorite guys. 

She's addicted to lip gloss and salted caramel everything. She believes in true love and kissing, so writing romance novels has become a dream job. 

She writes Adult, New Adult, and LGBTQ romance. More coming soon!
