I don’t want you.
You mean nothing to me.
I never loved you.
I turned my words into swords.
And I cut her down. Shoved the blade in and watched her fall.
I said I’d never hurt her, and I did.
Years later, I’m faced with all the little lies, the untruths, the false realities, the damage I inflicted, when all I wanted was to indulge my obsession.
Lavender Waters is the princess in the tower. Even her name is the thing fairy tales are made of. I used to be the one who saved her.
Over and over again. But I don’t want to save her anymore. I just want to pretend the lies are still the truth.
Heroine: Lavender Waters (Alex and Violet Waters’ youngest daughter, PUCKED and FOREVER PUCKED couple origin, Pucked Series, you get a glimpse of her as a child in A Secret for a Secret )
Hero: Kodiak (Kody) Bowman (Rook and Lainey Bowman’s son, A LIE FOR A LIE couple origin, All In Series )
REVIEW: This was some major angst I didn’t know I needed! When I read about Lavender in A Secret for a Secret, and saw how Queenie interacts with her through art therapy, I knew I wanted to know more about her. It was really amazing to get her story that showed how her anxiety and mental health played out throughout her young life, but also once she became an adult (when this book takes place). One of the things I really liked about this book is that both Lavender and Kodiak struggle with mental health, but they have such a strong support system around them. Their parents, siblings, and cousins have their backs and accept them for who they are. I also enjoyed the fact that they talk about toxic relationships, and that there is a difference between support from another person and using another person as a solution. Needless to say, both of these characters were amazing, although not right from the start–Kodiak had some growth to do and I really disliked him in the beginning. Luckily, the second half of the book gave me so much more than I was expecting. I was completely invested in them as a couple, their growth, and their happiness.
What might have been the cherry on top, is that we get guest appearances from Alex and Violet, as well as the other Pucked series and All In series characters as parents! Seeing all of their children is just so much fun after reading the books about the parents. I think it’s really neat to hear about how their children ended up and what paths they are pursuing. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Helena Hunting decides to explore some of the other children’s stories, because I think there is some great material there.
