My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Is It a Lie Stars!!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill

Every once in a while a book comes along that is unlike any that you've ever read. I'm here to tell you that Before the Lie by KD Robichaux IS that book! This is the story of Vi and Corbin, their meeting and how they fall in love. What's so different about this story you ask? Well, Vi is a beautiful but very shy girl that doesn't really "fit in" with the popular kids in school and because of that, she's kind of turned into herself and spends all her extra time at the rock climbing gym where she's a superstar! For once in her life, her tall, almost too thin body is exactly what's needed to excel at this particular sport. Once day Corbin shows up at the gym for a belaying lesson with one of his soldiers under his command and he spots Vi.

Oh and yes Corbin is a hot, sexy and tough Army Specialist that unbeknownst to Vi has some very dark needs when it comes to being with a woman and once he sees our Heroine for the first time it's almost like lightening has struck for both of them....

Talk about creating so much heat with these oh so physical words, I was literally fanning myself. I love it when an author has the ability to bring the reader into the story so much that we lose ourselves in all their words. Ms. Robichaux is a MASTER at doing this. Her character development and storyline are so intense and detail oriented that before I knew what was happening I'd made it through half the book without stopping. To me that's the sign of a book that will stand the test of time and call my name to be read over and over again....but I digress...

Once Corbin makes his intentions clear with Vi, I experienced the joy of watching her come out of her shell and believe that she's everything that a man, she thought was out of her league, can want and desire. In all fairness to Vi, this does cause her some trepidation because she doesn't understand the feelings she has for him, but she knows that she wants to spend time with him. The fact that Corbin is willing to take it slow with her, just made me fall in love with him over and over again. He's got it all, tattooed, alpha, commanding and goes after what he wants in all aspects of his life!

This book moves at just the right pace for these two and I never felt like it was rushed. As the story progresses, we learn so much about both our H/h and while they're truly falling in love, I'm thinking he's going to tell her what he likes in the bedroom, not to scare her away, but to let her know exactly what their life will be like. But first, they have to take that ultimate first step. Remember, Vi is a sweet and innocent young lady that's never had this type of attention from a man let alone an alpha like Corbin. I was so nervous for Vi! I mean think about your first time...was it everything you wanted it to be or was it all rushed and nerve racking...well not for these two and I LOVED this scene so much...

Oh be still my heart!!! I wanted my first time to be this awesome, but alas no so much LOL! Once Vi and Corbin take this step, it's inevitable they're in it forever. His love for her is not anything he ever expected to find. He's a kid that grew up on the rough side and he feels blessed to have her in his life....
"It feels so good being a man who Vi deserves, a fierce yet affectionate protector for my doting and faithful lover, that I haven't minded putting that part of me aside. Keeping her is worth more than fulfilling my darker needs."
One would think this is the beginning of their happily ever after right? Well, don't let the author's words fool you... the title of this book is Before the Lie. What is the lie exactly? And why is it so important? As I got to what is the most crucial part of this story, my mouth was left hanging open and I literally said NOOOOOOO. It can't end like this!!! I for one will be first in line to buy the conclusion of Vi and Corbin's story!!!
