ARC Review: Lie to You (Forbidden Trilogy #2) by J.C. Valentine

Lie to You (Forbidden Trilogy, #2)Lie to You by J.C. Valentine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Josephine makes a choice, but was it the right one?

When last we left Josephine, she just found out, she had been sleeping with twin brothers. Alike in looks, but very different in personality. Which is why she didn’t notice it wasn’t the same man she was with, really come one who would.

Josephine battled in the first book in her mind trying to rationalize her mystery man’s mood swings. Boy did she find out the answers to those questions in a major way. Ransom and Rebel do not have a bond, as you would expect most twins to have. These brothers seem to compete for everything.

Ransom seems the more gentleman type, romantic and loving. While Rebel is the hardcore I take what I want type of guy, rough around the edges. Josephine had a tough choice ahead of her and I have to say that in the beginning of this book I wasn’t sure I was happy with the direction J.C. Valentine was going in so I took a break from it. I jumped back in over this weekend feet first and I am so glad I did. I found out something about myself when I have a lot of stress going on in life don’t read a book because my mind was not into it.

The first book surprised me at every turn this second book was no exception. I love the character of Josephine at times she does make me want to smack her upside the head. However, as I have said before when a character has me reacting in such an emotional way it’s because the character is so well written. My heart broke for Josephine when her friendship with her best friend Annie started to unravel. I do not envy this girl's life at all.

Rebel is your typical hot alpha male bad boy. He exudes confidence and arrogance telling Josephine what he wants her to do rather than asking. Always taking what he wants without remorse, like Josephine I found myself both hating and loving Rebel. When he begins to let Josephine in their relationship seemed so easy and fun. Their sex scenes were scorching.

Ransom I am not so sure about, he seems like a stand up guy you think he has the best of intentions when it comes to Josephine but I don’t know I feel like there is something about him that isn’t right. He seems too perfect.

We will see in the conclusion, what the author has planned for these great characters. Falling for Him the third book in the trilogy will be out in August and I am so looking forward to reading it. The cliffhanger in this one had me screaming “No he didn’t!!” and No she didn’t!!”
