A Beautiful Lie (Playing with Fire Series) (Volume 1) - T.E. Sivec I liked this one, I just didn't love it. I really had to push myself to get through the first 40% of the book. The flashbacks (which happened right in the middle on conversations) gave me whiplash and I really got tired of hearing about Garrett's swelling dick. (Who knew I would EVER get tired of hearing about something like that, but I just wanted to scream, "I got it!!! He's a walking hard-on whenever Parker blinks!!") Once I got past the 40% mark the book and story picked up and it was much easier to read. I really didn't feel a lot of connection to the characters, but the story was suspenseful. I know I'm in the minority with my rating, but it's truly how I felt.
