Eighteen-year-old Savanah Parry just moved three thousand miles across state to escape. The memories…the whispers…the pain.
Chastity Falls Academy is supposed to be her fresh start; her salvation. And when Ana meets mysterious Jackson, she begins to think it is. She hasn’t smiled in almost sixteen months; not since the night her life changed forever, and despite her guilt…her loyalty, Ana can’t deny that Jackson is breathing life back into her. With Jackson by her side, Ana wants to believe she can heal and move on. But she isn’t the only one living a lie, and the small private Academy has secrets of its own. All is not what it seems, and Ana is about to find herself in a tangled web of lies; fighting for survival, again.
Loyalties will be tested, lies will be told. Welcome to Chastity Falls.
I was given an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. I must admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Loyalty and Lies, as I knew it was very different from Cotton’s other books which I read and loved.
Where as the Love’s Spark books were quite fluffy and didn’t have so much mystery and angst, Loyalty and Lies has all of that.
The cast of characters are all strong and well rounded. Most were very likeable, but there were a couple (Anyone with the surname Donohue in particular) who were so well written, I wanted to jump into the pages and slap them.
Ana has an air of mystery around her and her decision to move across the country, which when revealed, is heartbreaking. Thankfully, Jackson Piece is on hand to help her move through it. Kind of…
Between him and Ana’s roommate Elena, Ana begins to accept her past and builds upon her inner strength. It’s just a shame that Chasity Falls itself has other ideas.
If you read this book and don’t scream in frustration at the end, you are, in my opinion, a bit odd. Put it this way. I CANNOT wait for book two in what is shaping up to be another fantastic series from L. A. Cotton.
