Synopsis:

The man I fell in love with is a f*cking liar…
I don’t have much time to reveal all the details, but I will say this: The “Woman disappears after wedding” and “Woman flees before honeymoon” headlines are lying.
I’m not missing.
I didn’t run away after my wedding.
I would’ve never run away right before our scheduled honeymoon.
My husband has taken me.
No, correction: He’s kidnapped me because he claims that “it’s what’s best”. That I’m a mere pawn in his twisted game of chess.
Despite the fact that my heart is still tethered to his, or the fact that he’s still the most gorgeous and beautiful man I’ve ever met in my life (he can still make me wet with a single sentence), I have to focus on getting away from him.
I have to accept that he’s no longer the man I fell in love with.
He’s the king of lies


After the opening of King of Lies, all I could think was, “Oh, wow.” I was so curious about how Meredith ended up in the situation she was in with her husband holding her captive. As the story went on and revelations started coming, the more hooked I became to the story. It was truly fascinating. This romance isn’t something I’m used to reading from Whitney G. It’s her addictive romantic writing style, but it was also slightly erotic and all sorts of twisty thriller-ish. I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next installment, Queen of Lies.

  1. Wow, what a synopsis. The story sounds like it might be kind of over-the-top (and I don’t mean that in a negative way). I’ve only read one by Whitney G. and it was a kind of new adult college romance and this one sounds far from that! 🙂

    1. Hmm…It’s free right now, so I would say give it a try. It might be a little more than you like in some ways, but you might like it. Worth trying for sure!

  2. Ooh, the synopsis has piqued my interest! I haven’t read that many books by Whitney G. but I’m looking forward to reading more of her! This one sounds like a read that I’ll probably enjoy 🙂 Great review!
