I met my true love when I was twenty-seven. He was handsome, charming, witty, and irresistible. Jayden Monroe came along when I was struggling with indecision and made things simple, turned monochrome into vivid color, and forever altered my perspective on life.
I was not naive enough to believe in happily ever after, but with Jayden, it seemed possible . . . until I realized something wasn’t quite right.
You see, I met a man who would be anyone I needed him to be, and after I found out that fact, I knew it would be impossible to walk away. His disorder, however, would change everything I ever thought about love and what it truly meant to accept someone for who they are.
This is not my sob story; this is his success story.
Loving the White Liar was a cute, messy, and complicated love story between two strong people. It wasn’t your sappy, “all fits into one box”, and white-picket fences love story though. It wasn’t all hearts and roses and really depicted what relationships are like. Real relationships are worth trying to understand your partner and worth fighting for even when you don’t think there is another way. This…this is exactly what Jayden and Hilary’s love story is about.
Hilary and Jayden meet at the their apartment complex’s pool and completely hit off immediately. Hilary is completely swept off her feet by Jayden’s swooniness (not sure who wouldn’t be) and falls for him. But as they start to spend more time together, Jayden’s walls come down a bit and she is faced with being in a relationship with someone who suffers from ADHD.
The first thing I liked about this book was the banter between Hilary and Jayden-they had amazing chemistry with each other. Second thing I liked about this book was the hilarity and the voice of Hilary. She wasn’t your perfect heroine-she was still coming into her own and trying to find herself. I think a part of growing up was the love that Jayden gave her. He gave her the confidence she lacked and she thrived on it.
”This is not my sob story; this is his success story.”
Jayden on the other hand needed someone to love him unconditionally. He needed someone to fight for him and show him that he is worth it. I will admit that I think it would be hard for me at times to love him but then the other 90% of the time I don’t think I could keep my hands off of him. Plus, he literally saved a dog because it wasn’t being taken care of properly-enough said! I am a sucker for a guy who has his own set of issues and Jayden just fit the bill.
Like I said above, the chemistry between the characters were great. There was a lot of “real life” thrown into this book. It wasn’t a fairty tale love story which I think is what made the book so much better. Plus, this book was hella hot-I am not even kidding *fans self*.
I enjoyed this book and it got me out of a nine-day book slump. The only thing I wish we got was a small chapter in Jayden’s voice-even the epilogue.
