One Tiny Lie by K.A. Tucker Review

Livie Cleary has always been Miss Perfect—but she soon learns that perfection isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and finding out who she really is might mean making some mistakes along the way.
“Make me proud.” These were the last words Livie’s father ever spoke to her. In the seven years since her parents’ tragic death, Livie has done her best to live up to this standard through her every choice, word, and action, while looking after her sister with strength and maturity. But with college right around the corner, unexpected challenges will test her resilience—and her heart.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes; set herself up for medical school; and meet a good, respectable guy to someday marry. Her plan definitely does not include Jell-O shots; a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say “no” to; or Ashton, the arrogant—and extremely attractive—captain of the men’s rowing team who makes Livie’s usually nonexistent temper flare. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fit Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father, and, with it, the only identity she’s ever known.

My Thoughts:
4/5 Stars
K.A. has done it again....
Fantastic read packed with romance, mystery, and emotions.
Livie thinks she has her life all figured out. She gets good grades, keeps her thoughts in check, and is headed to pursue her dream career. However, when she gets to college and starts experiencing college life, her priorities and life goals change.
She meets Ashton, sexy athlete, with a playboy attitude and can't forget the night they share. Even though she is dating someone, she meet ups with Ashton and their connection grows deeper on an emotional/sexual level.
Together they let their guards down and learn to expose their inner most secrets.
This book was fantastic. I loved Livie in Ten Tiny Breaths and to see the vulnerable side in this book, made me love her even more. She learns to let go and express her true feelings. Her tough persona is put to the side as her softer, more emotional side is exposed.
Ashton was amazing. He is a book boyfriend in every way possible. He has a controlling, cocky attitude, but also a kind, compassionate personality. My heart hurt for him and what he went through. When Livie saw his scars, my mind raced with possibilities, but the truth was even more shocking.
The storyline is the college girl with a bad boy theme, but the Author took it to a whole new level. Emotions run high and a twisted kind of therapy is thrown in.
I highly recommend this book to all readers!
