Release Day Launch and Giveaway: One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker

~ Synopsis ~
Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents' tragic death and Kacey's self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would...and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

5 Star Review by Annie

“Life has a funny way of creating its own tests. It throws curve balls that make you do and think and feel things that are in direct conflict with what you had planned and don’t allow you operate in terms of black and white.”
One Tiny Lie was an intense read filled with raw emotion, hot sexual tension and the dreaded love triangle. If you loved Ten Tiny Breaths, which I did, you will absolutely fall in love with this book.
“Normal is boring.  Tequila, Livie. It makes wallflowers into butterflies.”
Ever since Livie was 9 years old, her dad and her had her picture perfect life all planned out. So when he was killed in a tragic accident Livie felt the need to honor him by following through with their plan. She has lived the life she thought her dad would want her to. She is now attending the college her dad attended, following the career path they chose together and is dating Connor, the boy her dad would approve of. All that changed in a split second, when her sister shoved a Jell-O shot in her hand and the hot guy shoved his tongue down her throat.  Does she really want that cookie cutter life that she planned for or does she want to live life the way she wants to? Does she take a gamble or does she stay with the safe bet?
Connor is the hot boy next door with the sexy Irish accent.  His goal in life is to be an attorney just like his father. He is best friends, team mates and roomies with Ashton, and witnesses his daily womanizing ways. Luckily for Connor he has found Livie, the girl of his dreams and doesn’t have to worry about all the row team groupies hanging around.
“Connor is perfect and easy. Ashton is far from perfect. I know now what Storm and Kacey mean when they call someone “sex on a stick.” That’s what Ashton is. He’s not a forever guy. Connor is a forever guy. “
Ashton is the captain of the row team and the big stud on campus. When women throw themselves at him he has no problem giving them what they want. Everything was going as planned until she walked into his life and flipped his life around and completely changed his way of thinking. The only problem standing in his way is his past and all the demons that haunt him daily. Can he get past the thing that is holding him back from living his life, that one tiny lie?
“Go forth and make thy mistakes.”
The main characters are full of inner turmoil, struggling how to break free and live life the way they want to. It is truly amazing to see them break free and start to figure out who they are.
This book has everything you need to make it a no breaks, non-stop sit thru read. You have the virginal honor student in the Ivy League college, the all-star sporty womanizing man hunk and the boy next door all involved in one epic love triangle. Could this get any better?
It contained many not so innocent parts that will have your stomach getting all gooey with impure thoughts. This is a fabulous book by a fabulous author. I would highly recommend this book.
