Review:The Lie by Karina Halle

Their love led to a lie
Their truth led to the end

Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident and his job from his subsequent downward spiral, he's finally moving forward, getting a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and a new life in the city. Slowly, but surely, he's pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him.

Until he sees her.

Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much she thought she'd die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she's in London, she's ready to start again.

Until she sees him.

Because some loves are too dangerous to ever indulge.
And some loves are far too powerful to ignore.
Their love just might be the life and the death of them.


“We’re going to fucking burn this world to the ground. And there’s no better way to go than in flames with him.” 

Step by step i fell in love with this story.Because a story like this one helps us realize that in life we can lose everything we love,but somehow we get a second chance ,a chance that might be the best thing that could happen to us.
This is not the first time when i've read about Brigs McGregor,but i admit that i wanted to know what happened with him and his family.In Lachlan's story,even if i didn't read much about Brigs,there were a few times when i hoped that maybe i'll get the chance to learn more about him,but somehow my wish came true and here i am writing about Brigs!

“We are forever surrounded by ashes. But we are fire. And fire rises.” 

Everything starts with a lie or at least that's what everyone thinks.My opinion?Everything starts with the truth,because the truth about what was happening with Brigs is what changed everything,what made that night turn into a complete disaster.Brigs McGregor is starting to live again ,day by day with the memory of what happened with Miranda and Hamish,blaming himself for something that he couldn't stop,but what he  never thought that would happen again was to see Natasha Trudeau,the one who was involved in all that happened.Somehow,they have to move on and live their lifes,but what if that isn't simple at all?What if the ghosts from the past will destroy everything?

Lie or no lie,what happened after it was the beginning of an wonderful story.

"This was never about the destination, Brigs. 
This was just about spending time with you."

Once i started reading i couldn't stop myself.I wanted to know more and i was curious to learn about what happened in the past ,and if everything will turn out like i hoped it will.Well,the story was beautiful and there were a lot of painfull scenes,but every chapter was full of surprises .

Brigs McGregor-i'm not sure how to describe him..A haunted man who was trying to move on with his life,even if he was blaming himself for what happened to his wife and child.I liked Brigs -he was funny,charming and handsome.A man who deserved to be happy...I admit that i hated the moments when he was trying to act like he didn't deserve anything,even if i knew why .
But the real torture begins when he and Natasha Trudeau met again after four years..Well,it wasn't exactly torture..But,yeah...

“You’d think that memories of love would feel just like the real thing, but these memories never feel anything like love. Love is good. Love is kind. Patient. Pure. So they say. Our love was a mistake from the start. A beautiful, life-rendering mistake.”

Natasha Trudeau -an amazing character full of life,but a little naive and blind.But still,i liked her.She was funny,smart and beautiful,but like Brigs,she was blaming herself for a lot of things and i kind of made me want to shake some sens in them both..Hard.

Like in all the books,there is always a bad person who wants to keep everyone apart,in this case it was Natasha's best friend,Melissa.And i hated that girl with all my heart,because i knew from the beginning that something was going to happen because of her.Despite that,i loved reading again about Lachlan,Kayla,Jessica and Donald.
I loved reading those chapters when they were together.They were perfect together and somehow they managed to see through the pain,something that i liked very much.
From the beginning until the end i was fascinated and it was fun reading about how Brigs and Natasha acted when they were near each other.
Painful memories.Guilt.But despite everything,it was a story about true love.About second chances.
