Quiet Lies by R.L. Griffin



QL-Cover-GoodreadsI was broken before I met Sebastian Pryor, but he decimated me. I swept the ashes of myself into a pile that I kept safe for thirteen years. Believe me it wasn’t pretty, oh but people thought we were perfect. I hate myself most days. I hate that I feel for him as much as I loathe who I’ve become with him. This story is hard to hear. You know what the worst part is? You’ll see part of you in me. You’ll hate that. You won’t tell anyone.

My story is about cracks. A description or telling of how cracks in a marriage, a life, a personality, a heart and a mind begin and continue for years without anyone knowing. You don’t always see what causes the fissure, but you feel it. Can you remember who you were before all of this started, before your life became a jumble of deceit, longing and regret?

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a happily ever after.

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a fun time out from their life.

This book isn’t for anyone, but me.

This is my story. I won’t apologize for it.


“You ruined my fucking life. I hope you burn in the hell that you created for yourself,” I whisper. Then I lick the shell of his ear and he looks at me like he doesn’t know me. He doesn’t. He created me, but doesn’t know what he created at all.

This does not happen often, but I really can’t put into words the feelings and emotions that I had during and after I read Quiet Lies. It truly rendered me speechless because while we may not have Rebecca’s life there are quite a few of us that have been in relationships with someone that is like a chameleon. Parts of this book was like looking in a rearview mirror and I couldn’t stop staring.

I fell in love with R.L.’s writing during the By a Thread series, but Quiet Lies moved her into the “I will read whatever she writes simply because it’s by her” category!!! Quiet Lies is an amazing, twisted, realistic piece of brilliance!!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Quiet Lies in exchange for an honest review.

Author PhotoR.L. Griffin published her first book in 2004. After that she focused on practicing law. A few years ago she began writing the By A Thread series, which is out now. Her goal is to keep readers on their toes, whether it’s the plot twist or the book itself, her books are outside any box. There is a little bit of grit in most of her books and a ton of cussing. Most books are enjoyed better with a glass of wine, or whiskey, whatever your poison may be.
She lives in Atlanta with her husband, kid and dogs. She loves to travel and meet readers.
