I’m in love with my best friend.
Lie.
I’m in love with my enemy.
Truth.

But they’re the same.
They. Are. The. Same.
Lines in my world are blurry between fantasy and reality.
Truth and lies. Love and hate.

Copeland Justice is my enemy. My once best friend. The sadist in my heart plucking and pulling at every thread of who I am until I’m unraveled at his feet.
His mouth says he hates me. His eyes burn with animosity for me. His heart beats for someone else.

ARC provided for an unbiased review.

Penn McAlister and Copeland Justice grew up together as best friends. An incident pulled them apart and it had been eating them ever since. However, things were about to change whether they’re ready or not.

Before starting this book, I didn’t realize how young the characters were. There was a lot of drama, external and internal but I didn’t mind it because it added angst to the story.

When his hips begin to thrust wildly against me, I try not to lose my mind to the madness only he can create. He reaches between us to grip my dick, stroking in tandem with his thrusts.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

I loved both Cope and Penn together especially in the earlier part of the story. The palpable tension between them was both painful and hot. My favorite part was the “in denial experimentation” scenes. Amusingly arousing lol!

Cope acts tough and like he has it all together, but I know the boy deep inside him. The insecure boy who never felt loved by his father. The boy who hides behind smirks and tattoos and nonchalance. But that boy hurts.

I enjoyed the overall storyline and I liked the secondary issues with the parents. However, I felt there was not enough background story to explain certain actions by the characters. Also, the ending was quite abrupt.

Wicked Lies Boys Tell is a story of embracing one’s true self. It would appeal to readers looking for a New Adult M/M romance with heat and angst.

Final Verdict:

This review is also available on Goodreads.
