WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
He’s annoyingly gorgeous, provocative, and fast becoming her best friend. But he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end…
It wasn’t nicking an expensive watch or diamond bracelet that landed streetwise Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It was a darn sweater. A judge decides that she has to return to her terminally ill mother, that god-awful dragon, who dumped her in an orphanage more than twelve years ago. Worse, for the coming six weeks, she has to do charity work on a strange aunt’s vineyards in France.
Yeah, right. Jona is determined to sneak off at the first chance she gets. But then she meets Julian, the dragon’s caretaker. Playful, understanding, and sinfully sexy, he’s everything she ever dreamed of—but she’d be damned if she let him know and break through her stonewall of protection. And then he awakens her mother from the dead with a simple touch . . .
When the first week in her new home is over, Jona is asking herself two things. One, how could it happen that she ended up in Julian’s arms after only three days? And two, how the hell do you keep an angel earthbound?
“Julian is one of those boys you can’t resist, no matter how hard you try, he always gets to you.”
“Laughter, tears, amazement, and the need to slap a smartass 17 year old girl for being rude to a dying woman who abandoned her when she was five propel LOVING YOUR LIES to its ‘ah’ ending.”
“Jona is a type of character I personally look up to, she’s feisty sarcastic and overall a strong character. I love the fact she shows no fear, and doesn’t let people get to her. I finished this book twice now and it only took me a few hours both go’s. If you are romanticist (like me, obviously) and you are not into reading books, I promise you this book will change your opinion, forever.”
“Piper Shelly paints with words. This talented Austrian author’s writing is spectacular. As if with brushstrokes, her words, her sentences illustrate the characters, their action, and surroundings in my head so vividly I feel like I’m watching a film or examining a magnificent piece of artwork…. Jona is a complex character. She is clever, funny, rebellious, fair, strong, eager, but most of all, she is hurt. She has serious trust issues and isn’t willing to get close to anyone.”
“I Love this book! This story was brilliantly executed, with a handsome angel, falling for a troubled almost 18 year old girl. This story swept me away, and I love Julian. I had dreams about this story when I went to bed. It stayed with me and gave me chills too…I really liked Julian, he is one hot angel. He really has found a place in my heart. I had to pick up another book to read, for a tour as soon as I was done, but I didn’t want too, lol, felt like a book hangover, just didn’t want to move on from this remarkable story.”
