Like A little lie can change the course of everything. . . every other eighteen-year-old in love, Olivia has dreams of spending forever with the love of her life. Luke is all she’s ever wanted – until she overhears something she was never meant to. In a matter of seconds, Olivia’s heart is shattered. Olivia handles it the only way she knows how - she runs- leaving behind her family, friends and the boy she loves. 
Seeking comfort and an escape, Olivia finds it in resident bad boy Deacon. He’s everything Luke isn’t – and that’s fine with Olivia.

Now, seven years later, Olivia is older, wiser and headed back to Chicago looking forward to a fresh start and reconnecting with her best friend Pyper. What she doesn’t expect, is to come face to face with the boy she left behind and discover that even though she may have left, her feelings for him didn’t. 

Can Olivia put aside the pain in her heart and trust Luke? Will the ties to her past ever let her go, or will she continue to let her life be affected by pretty little lies?

When I first got Pretty Little Lies from Jennifer Miller, I instantly fell in love with the cover.  It’s absolutely gorgeous.  This is my first book from Jennifer and if they are as good as Pretty Little Lies, then I need to go Amazon shopping ASAP!

Olivia just recently got a divorce from her over powering and controlling husband, Deacon.  In order to start a new life, her best friend since high school, Pyper, has her come back home to Chicago and move in with her.  Pyper is an amazing character, I just adored her.  She is hilarious, spunky, and the best friend any one could have.  Olivia is very lucky to have someone like her by her side.  So once she gets settled in, Pyper and Olivia decide to join an online dating site, well, Pyper makes Olivia sign up. LOL.  I will tell you, it’s been a while since I have laughed out loud so much in a book.  This poor girl (Olivia), goes out on these bind dates from hell. LOL.  I was cracking up the whole time!  Then, Olivia runs into her high school sweetheart, Luke and all these feelings come back to her.   Is Olivia ready to go back and relive all those high school memories of her and Luke?  Can she forgive him for breaking her heart all those years ago? 


Pretty Little Lies was a hilarious, heart-warming, romantic read.  Jennifer really bought back some of my own memories when they were talking about first loves and high school sweethearts.  There is nothing better than reading a story that takes you back to a special time in your life and that’s exactly what Jennifer did for me, butterflies and all.  Oh, and I can’t forget about all the great “fashion tips” before every chapter!  Believe me, those will have you cracking up too! LOL Pretty Little Lies definitely has Owl Always Be Reading’s seal of approval, now go buy it!!
