The Only Epikia

Haggard. Twisted. Awkward. Weird? Bubbly. Hungry. Sleepy. I am a 20 year old something Registered Nurse, but ‘something’ by heart. I don’t know that ‘something’ yet, I’m still soul-searching, you know? I'm a master of none, I march to the beat of a different drummer and have the ability to laugh at most any situation.

One Tiny Lie - K.A. Tucker 4.5 stars

Just when I thought I told myself I'll refrain myself from reading these kind of new adult books, you know, with broken hero/heroine past and present and read some feel good or funny themes, yet, I found myself reading this kind, again...and after finishing it, I haven't regretted it. I actually have a lot of half-finished books lately that I put on hold as of the moment because of that theme and, I don't know, I kinda got tired of it...but, I will eventually get back on it when I'm in the mood to read it. I just hope that I haven't forgotten the previous happenings in that book so I will not scratch my head and ask myself, why???

Now. Wow. This is pretty intense. I loved how [a:K.A. Tucker|4866520|K.A. Tucker|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1351111292p2/4866520.jpg] makes her character--the perfectly flawed one that you can't help but be sort of attached to it. I can pretty relate with the heroine, Livie, with all that awkward, blushing ferociously and sweating like a pig on uncomfortable situations and yep, attractive-uber-hot guys and embarrass myself on how I handle it not very well...and yes, the things that you made up in your head because you think they would be proud if you go on that path. I appreciate that the author made that part be sort of vague in the end...although I would have loved to know what was really her final decision. Trial and error, eh? And then there's the hero, Ashton. Gods, the fuckin' tension is so palpable between Livie and him and I can't help but cheer them on...knowing my opinion about "cheating". Well, there's that phrase about exception to the rule and all that shite, and there are a lot of technicalities with their situations...so, yeah, that's why I am not uncomfortable on reading this unlike. And yep, I loved his character, too. All in all, this is a good read...but, I think in term of dramatics and all that crap, the first one was a lot emotional and heavier than this...and maybe I should be thankful for that because I don't really need this kind of drama as of the moment? Um. Dunno. But, unlike the first book, this actually made me shed a tear. Maybe, I'm a little "unemotional" when I read the first book...and if I probably read the first one now, I might probably cry just like what I did here. Hah.

Looking forward for the next book. :)
