  1. 1. One Tiny Lie onlineTo download now please click the link below.http://amzn.to/11ideGSOverviewLivie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling herparents tragic death and Kaceys self-destructive phase with strength andmaturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last wordsher father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised shewould...and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, withevery word, with every action.
  2. 2. 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, respectableguy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-Oshots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, thegorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant asswho makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’twant in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happensto fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longerthinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’sforced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity thatshe knows.ReviewsThis book starts with Livie and her sister Kacey from book 1 discussing Kaceysgrowing concern with Livies perfect persona - she is living her life how she thinksher parents wanted her to live, not how she feels she should live. Kacey puts herin touch with Dr Stayner who in his unconventional ways, puts her on the road tofind herself.Once she arrives at Princeton, with the help of her sister and new roomie, she getsdrunk on jello shots and meets Ashton, big time man whore and captain of therowing team. After a night of uncharacteristic fun, things get a lot complicated andso the book really gets going.I really didnt like Ashton much at first, he was an a-hole big time but god did Ifancy him - I really wanted to unravel his secrets and lick him at the same time.As for Livie, she was a perfect book heroine with no annoying traits whatsoeverand you really felt for her as she struggled with her feelings for Ashton whilstquestioning her life choices so far.K.A Tucker writes so emotionally, it draws you into the story and I didnt oncewant to put it down.
  3. 3. After the tragic death of their parents, Kacey and Livie were forced to grow upfast. In Ten Tiny Breaths, we saw Kacey struggle with the trauma of losing herparents. For years, Kacey bottled up her emotions and behaved badly, and it allcame crashing down. Through Kacey’s point-of-view, it appears Livie dealt withher parents’ death extremely well, much better than her sister.However, everything is not as it seems.One Tiny Lie takes place a few years after Ten Tiny Breaths. Livie is on her way toPrinceton for college, fulfilling her father’s dream of attending his alma mater. Shehas maintained a spotless academic record and has never gone through anyteenage rebellions. Concerned that Livie hasn’t really dealt with their parents’deaths, Kacey recommends that she chat with Dr. Stayner, Kacey’s therapist.Dr. Stayner is not your typical “lay-down-on-the-white-couch-and-let’s-talk”therapist. His tactics and methodologies are anything but conventional. In fact,they border on crazy. The summer before college, he subjects Livie to a summerfull of dares and tasks to complete, and she excels at all of them. For as long asshe can remember, Livie has wanted to be a pediatric oncologist, but these weeklychats with Dr. Stayner make Livie question what she really wants for her future.Her whole life has been building to this one goal of becoming a doctor, but is thiswhat she really wants?Kacey takes Livie to her first college party to initiate her into college life. WhatLivie doesn’t know until later is that this is part of Dr. Stayner’s therapy plan.Essentially, Dr. Stayner gives Livie a prescription for tequila and debauchery.Craziness ensues in the form of stolen Jell-O shots. Livie meets Ashton, the hot-shot captain of the Princeton rowing team and said Jell-O shot thief. After a nightof drunken make-out sessions, Livie and Ashton are drawn to each other. Theproblem is that Ashton is not available and has a sort of playboy reputation oncampus. Livie eventually moves on with Connor in hopes of forgetting aboutAshton.What I loved about Ashton and Livie was their chemistry. There are very few bookcouples that give me this feeling. I couldn’t get enough of them and I just wanted
  4. 4. them to just BE TOGETHER. Every time they were together there were sparks andfeel-good fizzies. I just wanted to scream, “Just do it already!” When a scene withthem ended, I couldn’t wait until I had more Livie and Ashton time. The romancebetween the two of them had them forbidden aspect that I loved. Ashton was in adaddy-arranged relationship with a girl, but he wasn’t in love with her. And Liviewas in a relationship with Connor, the safe guy. There was a (sort-of) love-trianglein it, so if that sort of thing bothers you you should probably stay clear of it.Aside from the romantic aspect of their relationship, I loved seeing them work outtheir problems with each other and with themselves. As Livie struggles to find heridentity in something other than being a doctor, Ashton is there to sweetly supporther. The things Ashton does for Livie are extremely selfless and show exactly howhe feels about her.Ashton and Livie are one of the most passionate and unforgettable couples in abook that I have read this year. I will rereading One Tiny Lie again and again andagain.Favorite Quotes:“The only thing I regret is that it ever ended. And I’m the one who’s jealous.Insanely so.”“1.) I’m brilliant2.) I’m charming3.) I’m hung like a thoroughbred4.) I’ve stopped all philandering5.) I’m highly skilled, as you’ve learned the other night.P.S. Stop staring at my hands. I know what you want me to do with them.”
  5. 5. “I feel as though I’ve entered some strange twilight zone where everything I knowhas been turned upside down.”Livie Cleary, Kacey’s little sister from Ten Tiny Breaths., is now all grown up inOne Tiny Lie.. With a flawless academic career, she is now attending PrincetonUniversity--her ultimate goal being medical school. Livie may be level headed,responsible, cautious, calm, and trustworthy, but she’s never actually lived herlife. Livie has always been the strong and stable sister. She’s been there for Kaceythrough thick and thin after Kacey lost her way after their parent’s died in aterrible car accident. This is why Kacey has decided to step in and help her littlesister, who has built this life that oozes perfection. Kacey has enlisted Dr. Stayner,her therapist, to help break through Livie’s shell and find out what’s underneathbefore she completely loses herself in a life that may not be meant for her. Kaceyand Dr. Stayner think it’s time for Livie to spread her wings, make mistakes, bespontaneous… live HER life, not the life she thinks would make her father proud.“You are one of the kindest souls I’ve ever met, Livie. You respond to humanheartache so acutely. It’s like you absorb other’s pain. Despite your extremeshyness, you will do just about anything not to fail. It’s time to find out who youreally are.”Her first night at Princeton, Livie goes to a college toga party with Kacey andReagan, Livie’s very wild and outgoing new roommate. Kacey’s mission: get Liviedrunk, make sure she has fun, and ‘liberate Livie’s libido.’ As the Jell-O shotscontinue to go down, Livie starts to loosen up and have a good time. Just as shedrops another one in her mouth, a super sexy guy not only steals her shot, butsteals her first kiss. And then Livie punches him. It was lust at first punch.The next morning, after a long night of partying, Livie wakes up hung over, in onlyher panties, tattooed, with no memory of the night before, and… with a verynaked Ashton Henley, aka the Jell-O thief, in her dorm room. And, unfortunately,the awkward encounter is not the last she sees of Ashton. From this moment on,Livie’s whole life begins to unravel as she spirals down a rabbit hole of deception,betrayal, confusion, cheating, bad grades, love, and heartache.Oh, Ashton – such a tortured hero. He’s known for being captain of the PrincetonHeavyweight rowing team, sexiest man on campus, arrogant, and being a bit of a
  6. 6. man whore. Not so surprisingly, I fell in lust with him from the moment he stoleLivie’s Jell-O shot. But… he has a girlfriend… and he cheats on her. Wait. Don’tjudge until you meet Ashton. I’m not condoning the cheating. However, I quicklygot over my reservations once I got to know him. Ashton has some deep, darkissues that shape who he is as a person. His secrets are gut-wrenching and theyforce him to be someone that he never chose to be. He’s hurting and just wants toforget it all.When Livie finds out Ashton cheats on his girl with her and other girls, she’sstunned and hurt, so she goes to great lengths to avoid Ashton. There is no wayshe wants to be associated with someone like that. Though it’s hard to avoidAshton when he’s everywhere, charming his way into her life while also continuingto push her away. The more she’s around him, the more she’s drawn to him. Shecan’t stop thinking about him. But Ashton is not the kind of guy her parent’s wouldapprove of. So Livie starts dating Connor, Ashton’s best friend. He’s respectable,kind, and safe. Her parents would like him so that makes him perfect for Livieexcept… she doesn’t have the same kind of emotional, intense chemistry withConnor that she has with Ashton. Connor is not the guy that makes her stomachflutter and her toes curl when he kisses her."Because youre not a one-night girl, Irish." Leaning in to place a kiss on myjawline, he whispers, "Youre my forever girl."To say the situation between Connor, Ashton, and Livie is complicated is quite theunderstatement. Livie has this huge heart and feels obligated to stay with Connor.She’s torn between following along her life plan and following her heart. Yet themore she gets to know the true Ashton, the harder she falls for him. What’s a girlto do? Stay with the guy who is safe or the bad boy she feels connected to? Livieis so confused. Especially since Ashton and Livie obviously belong together, but hewould push and pull Livie in two different directions. He wants her. He wants hernot. There were moments my heart didn’t know if it could take any more rejectionfrom Ashton. But then he would leave a sweet note or open up to Livie. Thesethings would make me shiver and tingle in a good way. What it boils down to – Iwanted nothing more than for these two to find a way to be together.All of the secondary characters are fun and charismatic. I love seeing the rolesreverse between Livie and Kacey. This time, Kacey plays a large role in helping
  7. 7. Livie find herself. It was good to see Kacey and Trent happy and settled in theirlives. They’ve both come so far since their story in Ten Tiny Breaths. Then there isLivie’s roommate, Reagan. She’s so spunky and fun-loving and such a great friendto Livie. Part of me wishes she was getting her own book. And then there was thequirky Dr. Stayner – such an interesting character who plays an essential role inthis story. His unusual therapy methods contributed to helping Livie discover herinner self.One Tiny Lie is a compelling story that manages to evoke a gamut of emotionsfrom me. I felt like my heart strings were being stretched so thin at times that Ikept wondering if these two will ever figure things out before they broke. This isone of those stories where I think the reader is going to either love or hate it. Anystory that involves cheating is not an easy read. You will be frustrated with Livieand Ashton’s mistakes. They make a ton of mistakes that hurt people in theprocess. There were times when I wanted to scream and hug them at the sametime. I was an emotional wreck, I tell you. And my anxiety was on the fritz. Butthere is a lesson to learn here that I think most young adults must experience. Lifeis messy and it’s all part of living and learning. When you entwine all the greathumor, sadness, happiness, wonderful characters, emotional turmoil, drama, andromance – you have a remarkable story that I fell madly in love with.I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book from Netgalley and Iwould like to thank them and my lucky stars because this book refueled mypassion for reading the NA/YA genre I have fallen in love with! I LOVED the firstbook Ten Tiny Breaths and fell hard for Kacey and Trent in that installment. Youcame to know Livie as the younger, sweet, shy sister who knew what she thoughtshe wanted and how to quietly get it.This story begins with Kacey bringing her to college with intentions of getting herdrunk and possibly laid.. What are big sisters for? She has a jello shot filled nightof fun, tattoos and meets the school whoremonger Ashton and the story begins..This author has a true gift of telling a story in way that draws you in and makesyou care about everyone and everything that is happening. Brilliant!I recommend this book to anyone that likes a good, full hearted, warm, funnystory. Any sister that threatens the manhood of a young man she has just met is
  8. 8. my kinda girl! Livie held her own with her story and I hold it as high or slightlyhigher than the first story..LOVED IT..carry on and read it already.This is the story of Livie.Livie is Kaceys Sister from (Ten Tiny Breaths BookOne).This is Livies story.Her story is so very different from Kaceys..While you seesome comparisons you really cannot compare them if that makes sense. Livie isthe one who knows what she wants.The sensible one.She has it mapped out andplanned out.She will NOT leave the plan.Until that fateful party where she meetsAshton and what a fine specimen he is Ashton has baggage lots of it. But K.ATucker makes it work and boy does it work. Thats all your getting no Spoilers.Lipsare sealed.K.A Tucker has once again wowed me.In One Tiny Lie you see Livie in a whole newlight.Not just as the kid sister but living her life,Making hermistake.Learning.Loving.I am in utter awe of K.A Tuckers ability to draw you intoa story.While Ten Tiny Breathes felt more dramatic One Tiny Lie felt like I could sitback relax a small bit with Livie and enjoy the college life.Kacey has it together inthis book and there was no need to worry about Livie.She was able to be thecarefree big sister giving her sisterly advice and perhaps pushing Livie out of hershell. Livie and Ashtons chemistry was sizzling.There was a part in the bookwhere Livie spits out her drink and I swear I laughed out loud and scared thedog.Guess who was back?My Favorite Doctor Stayner,Watch out because if K.ATucker let him he could totally steal the show.Sneaky Doctor that he is.I cannotand will not choose which book in this series I like better.I cannot.They are bothgreat and so different you cannot compare.K.A Tucker you have wowed me onceagain with your writing.Job Well done.I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.5 shiny starsI absolutely love the first book in this series and had my fingers crossed in hopethat the second book would be just as fantastic and as it turns out I had no needto worry as I loved it from the very first page.In book 2 we met Livie, Kaceys younger sister from Ten Tiny Breaths. Livie is thequieter more reserved Cleary sister this is until Dr Stayner rocks her world withthe conclusion that shes living her life the way her parents would of wanted her tonot how she wants to. This is how she lands herself a at collage toga party mixingJell-O shots and tongues with the gorgeous captain of the Rowing team AshtonHenley.
  9. 9. Ashton is completely broken and screwed up and living a total lie using women toforget and feel free, until the night the most beautiful girl hes ever seen isstanding in front of him asking him to kiss her because shes Irish.I loved the chemistry between Livie and Ashton and there were times when myheart hurt for both of them im just so glad they got their happy ending.The supporting characters were great especially Dr Stayner I could feel myselfgiggling with some of the things he said and tasks he had for Livie and in the endthey helped two broken soles find each other and fall in love.To download now please click the link below.http://amzn.to/11ideGS
