Lexi is just the sort of girl a dark and brooding rockstar like Oliver Walt would fall for. Beautiful. Wild. Fun. The only problem?
Lexi is a lie
Bookish Kate Green knew she needed to brush up on her social skills before her first year of college, so she created an online persona to chat and flirt. And who better to practice on than talented and tormented rock frontman Oliver Walt? After all, the lead singer of her favorite band would hardly notice one more adoring fan. Except…he does. And with a single private message, Kate’s world changes forever.
Then Oliver wants to meet in person. Kate knows she has to come clean, but things are never that easy, so instead she enlists the aid of her beautiful and calculating study partner…which turns out just the way you might expect. Now, with Gretchen refusing to stop being Lexi, the lies grow bigger by the hour—and so do the stakes. Kate’s heart and Oliver’s life.
Get a sneak peek at Michelle Kemper Brownlow's When I Lied (available April 17, 2016) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.
“You’re an honest person, Kate. You’re trustworthy, but you’re struggling with an untruth. Am I right?”
I nodded, and a tear left the corner of my eye. Oliver stepped forward and placed a warm hand on my cheek and wiped it away with his thumb.
“Kate, that’s just it. This is what I found so perplexing about yesterday. I expected to feel everything I felt for Lexi over the phone to be overwhelming when we finally met in person…like an amp turned all the way up. But I was getting some noise, like the ear-splitting feedback from a speaker. And that made it very difficult to read her in the way I’d hoped. You can’t be too careful in this industry. Some people are just too good at lying, and I needed to trust her completely. But the feeling I got yesterday…fell short.”
