After reading the synopsis, I was really looking forward to reading Before the Lie. I was hooked from the prologue alone and considering the rest of the book took place three years prior to that scene, I couldn’t wait to see how this story unfolded. The writing was really good. I liked the plot and the characters. I do wish though that there was more depth when it came to Corbin and Vi’s relationship compared to the amount of detail we received in other situations. At times it made me lose focus on the characters. I loved the way Corbin was with Vi and the way he took his time with her considering the difference in experience levels. I also admired the way he helped her build her confidence. This is a duet so Before the Lie was left on a cliffy and I honestly can’t believe that Vi said what she said at the end. It just didn’t seem like the type of person that she was throughout the book. It definitely left me frustrated with her. The pacing of the story was pretty good for the most part. It tended to be a bit slow in certain areas but other than that I thought the story was engaging.
KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom, who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a Senior Editor for Hot Tree Editing. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her very own real life romance.
