    One thought on “Good Lies”

    1. 5 "Wild" StarsI just couldn't get enough of this book! What a debut. Different and emotional and so fun.Good Lies is the first book in a new series of standalones and I am hooked. Addison is the daughter of a world famous rock star with a ton of baggage. She's also got a few lies she's desperately trying to hide and after 4 years, those lies are finally starting to catch up with her. In a surprisingly emotional story, this laugher infused romance was everything I could have wanted and more. Addi [...]

    2. Well I’ll be damned! This story sucked me in and refused to let me go until I read the very last sentence! I can’t tell you how glad I am that I took a chance on this story because it really was that good. Addison and Warren’s story is going to make you not only fall in love with them, but also every side character.Having witnessed her own mother’s tragedy at the age of three, Addison has seen her fair share of heartbreak to rival any grown-up. Now in the care of her Rock Star father, Ad [...]

    3. Hero was an ass, who learned nothing from their time apart. I’m guessing he was concerned more about his hangovers and blue balls. But as I said he learned nothing.He admitted that when he married heroine he wanted her father’s money, and wanted revenge on him. So he DID use her. After that admission, he was head over heels in love with her doesn’t ring true. And it didn’t. I felt the monumental issue which was the reason for the MCs’ break up was dealt very callously and was swept und [...]

    4. 4 ★'s This is my first encounter with a Charlotte West book and since I was in the mood for a rock star romance, I decided to give it a try. I'm happy to report that I really liked the spin she put on the story. Addison (Addy) is the child Billy Wanks never knew he had. Orphaned at a young age after a traumatic experience, Addison is thrust into the rock star lifestyle. Billy knew at first glance that she was his child but in case there was any question, he knew for sure after her many visits [...]

    5. I didn't know the author's work and I was positively surprised. Hero was celibate for the three years of separation earned a star and was a positive point in history. Our heroine is very annoying. But overall it was a good story and I will follow the author's work.

    6. Addy and War sitting in a tree.This story was incredibly good. It was fun, interesting, and had the perfect amount of angst. There’s a forbidden, and secret relationship. Rocker dad, and a rocker lover. Told in the heroines POV. Which does make it a bit hard to connect to the hero of the story. None the less it’s still a good read. Rocker romance isn’t really my favorite because it can all start to feel the same, but this story felt fresh in many ways. Really enjoyable and I’m actually i [...]

    7. 3.5 - 3.75 starsThe best of the best about this book:The hero stayed celibate during 3-year separation.The hero was a rock star. A rock star who took wedding vows serious. Wow! Yep, I couldn’t believe it either.Amazing!!!Safe rock star romance! Loved it about this book!!!The story was a bit messy. Many unnecessary misunderstandings, the main question why the hero said those awful things many years ago that made her leave him? I didn’t get all my answers. But behind his as’holish façade wa [...]

    8. Hmmm this one is a tricky one to review. This book could've have been great for had it not been the heroine and her decision making processes. The h was very selfish and cowardly. Also the fact that the following books in this series all have manwhore heros who lead the heroines on with "open relationships." Not digging that at all. But otherwise, this was a solid book. Just the right amount of angst for a Friday afternoon.

    9. This is not your average rock star love story, and I mean that in the very best way. I was completely charmed by this story and impressed with how it was written in a way that made these "larger than life" characters relatable and endearing. Good Lies was by turns laugh-out-loud funny, heavy with emotion, and sinfully sexy - and it flowed seamlessly and naturally throughout the entire story. It held me completely captive - not wanting to put it down until the delightful, heart melting conclusion [...]

    11. THIS WAS. SO. GOOD!!!! Completely taken aback by how much I enjoyed the story, and how completely invested I was. I know this is set in a fictitious world, and the one I live in is so very different from Addy's - but I related to her so much. (Man, this millennial existential crisis-inducing stories are really getting to me nowadays.)If this is only a debut novel, I can't wait to read the rest of her stories. I feel like she's going to be one to look out for in the future.

    12. Addison Wanks has seen more heartache in her young formative years that most adults see in a lifetime, and that hindered her a bit.

    15. Link to my full review: readsandreviews/one-ofI really loved this book. Charlotte West knocked it out of the park with her debut. Addy is a fantastic heroine, a perfectly portrayed 22 year old trying to be independent, yet want to please her daddy. Warren is sexy and sweet. Loved his physical presence in the story, his mannerisms depicted so that he jumped off the page. Billy is the quintessential rocker, but a lovable, flawed Dad that gives this book his depth. There are fantastic secondary cha [...]

    16. 3.5 "cute and funny rock star romances are right up my alley even though this one has holes a Mack truck could drive through (view spoiler)[Seriously, are they even legally married? They had a spontaneous ceremony in a foreign country but did they have a license? She went through the whole legal name change process and has supposedly been using identification with her married name for three years yet no one caught wind of the marriage until the waiter decided to spill the tea?! (hide spoiler)]" [...]

    17. What a fantastic debut by Charlotte West and it sort of reminded me that I enjoy reading books about rock stars. Somewhere along the way, I stopped reading this trope and can’t really remember why.Addy is forced to face her past and all her secrets when she joins her father on tour and her husband. Yep. Husband. Addy’s infatuation with rock star Warren. But her infatuation not only led to a secret love affair but it also ended in a secret marriage. I loved the chemistry between Addy and Warr [...]

    19. ARC reviewed for an honest review and it was reviewed for My Timeout Book Blog by Melissa. Good Lies is a second chance, rocker romance. I loved the story of Addison and Warren, there was just many levels to it. But the romance between these two isn't the main story of this novel. This is also the story of a girl and her dad, who also happens to be a rock star. Addison has quickly become a favorite character of mine. She has gone though so many things in her short life. From losing her mother, b [...]

    20. 3 1/2 Stars.Not your typical rocker romance.Warren, I considered him a reserved alpha and Addison, she has somedy issues. Billy, her father has his idea and rules in place for her life and of course, she has her own but fears disappointing and not being needed by him Addison and Warren's relationship is not one-sided despite all the roadblocks Addison puts up. Plus it doesn't help that her rocker father and rocker husband don't get along. So, there is family drama, lies, omissions, and misunders [...]

    21. Rock star romances tick all the boxes for me, add in two generations of excellent characters and it's a sure fire winner. Addy has been making her way in the world on her own until her past comes back and bites her on the bum. The one big secret she is harbouring is going to send her rock god father Billy into a spin. Loved this fun story, can't wait to read more from this author.

    22. Loved it!!Really loved this book. So glad my book buddy Kathy suggested it. I just love a broody sexy alpha Rock Star, and "War" Warren Price is definitely that. Really got a kick out of Addison's dad Billy too. Cannot wait for Ash's story. This was my first read by this author and definitely won't be the last. Very fast paced storyline that I think everyone will enjoy so check it out!Thanks Jamie Nibarger Ellis

    23. I loved loved looooved this! It was perfect, it had EVERYTHING! EmotionsDrama Steam Tragedy Just effing fantastic! I loved War and Addy GAHHH!!!

    24. It was pretty great. Read this in one sitting ( very short).I love the tension between Addy and Warren.But the plot was too unbelievable. Also didnt like all the lies. The ending was rushed. Still, I can;t wait for the second book.

    25. I was pleasantly surprised by "Good Lies"! I couldn't put it down!! I really loved the story!! Let's hope that the second book is equally good or,why not,even better!!

    27. I was asked by the author for an honest review.5 starsComing from a devastating life, four year addison had nothing. Her mother overdosed right in front of her and she really didn't know her dad. She had a picture and no one believed it was her dad. Except for one cop, that had a heart of gold and went to the ends of the world for this girl. Addison didn't have much but as she grew up a rock stars daughter she learned she could have everything. This book has a lot of angles that you can look at [...]

    28. 4-4.5 stars. Addison Wanks may be the illegitimate daughter of famous rockstar Billy Wanks, but she avoids the direct spotlight as much as possible. She has some deep seated fears that include abandonment from the people she loves, and they are justified from her childhood experiences. So while she chooses to live her life in her own way, she also realizes there are consequences to her actions, but she's not quite ready to face those head-on yet. That would include Warren Price, the man she love [...]

    29. 3.5 Stars Good Lies is Charlotte West's debut and while I can't say she knocked it out of the park, she's definitely an author that I will read again. It was a good read, but not one that will stick with me forever. And I say that because I finished this book only 2 days ago and I don't remember exactly how the book ends and remember snippets of the book, so while I know I enjoyed the book while reading it, it obviously didn't leave any lasting impressions on me.I love a good rock'n'roll romance [...]
