"A thrilling, sexy coming-of-age story exploring toxic love, ruthless ambition, and shocking betrayal, Tell Me Lies is about that one person who still haunts you--the other one. The wrong one. The one you couldn't let go of. The one you'll never forget. Lucy Albright is far from her Long Island upbringing when she arrives on the campus of her small California college, and happy to be hundreds of miles from her mother, whom she's never forgiven for an act of betrayal in her early teen years. Quickly grasping at her fresh start, Lucy embraces college life and all it has to offer--new friends, wild parties, stimulating classes. And then she meets Stephen DeMarco. Charming. Attractive. Complicated. Devastating. Confident and cocksure, Stephen sees something in Lucy that no one else has, and she's quickly seduced by this vision of herself, and the sense of possibility that his attention brings her. Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, if exposed, could ruin him, and his single-minded drive for success extends to winning, and keeping, Lucy's heart. Alternating between Lucy's and Stephen's voices, Tell Me Lies follows their connection through college and post-college life in New York City. Deep down, Lucy knows she has to acknowledge the truth about Stephen. But before she can free herself from this addicting entanglement, she must confront and heal her relationship with her mother--or risk losing herself in a delusion about what it truly means to love. With the psychological insight and biting wit of Luckiest Girl Alive, and the yearning ambitions and desires of Sweetbitter, this keenly intelligent and staggeringly resonant novel chronicles the exhilaration and dilemmas of young adulthood, and the difficulty of letting go, even when you know you should"--… (més)

Remember your sweet college friend who kept going back to her terrible man even though he was terrible every single time they got together? Relive that by reading this book.

Ugh! I hated both Lucy and Stephen but I guess that’s a sign of good writing, right? The ending was just too pat and didn’t fit with beginning of the book. ( )

Tell Me Lies by Carola Lovering is a romance novel I will never forget. This is the first book that hooked me into the romance genre. Lucy Albright is the full package. She is smart and ambitious, young and beautiful. She is in her freshman year in a small college in California. She comes from a loving, privileged home (in Cold Spring Harbor, NY). Lucy finds herself falling for Stephen DeMarco, a junior at her college. He is so boring. His hobbies include drinking beer, watching South Park, and calling everyone pathetic and moronic. More importantly, he does not treat Lucy well. He lies and cheats and derails her life, yet still doesn’t even have the decency to feel guilty about it. Lucy spends five years pining after Stephen. No matter how badly he treats her, she keeps coming back for more. Dig deeper and you will find that Lucy’s life isn’t as charmed as it appears. When she was fourteen, she suffered a trauma "the Unforgivable Thing" hat left her mistrusting and cynical. She has an impressionable, compulsive personality (her college years are marked by an eating disorder and a cocaine habit. ) Stephen knows exactly how to play it: he knows how to seduce, how to turn on the charm. A "love story" this is not, but lust it most certainly i; one that captures the acute angst, longing, and urges that mark an unhealthy, yet addictive attraction. The toxic lust is what draws the reader in and keeps them there.

I tried and tried to keep reading but the characters are so hard to like and the chapters keep going on and on I finally had to stop reading after reading 3/4 of the book. Lucy is so weak-minded ans Stephen is a consummate SOB who will use any woman to get what he wants. I rarely don't finish a book but this one is definitely a DNF. ( )

So, wow, this book, I could not stop thinking about it.

We’ve all had that one relationship that’s messed us up, that one person who has gotten under our skin, and that one relationship that seemed to end so suddenly and without reason. This book really got me to thinking about the way that people don’t really care about others’ feelings, that they do the things they do without rhyme or reason, and sometimes, it’s good to let people go.

People throw around the term toxic a lot when it comes to relationships and in this book, Stephen is the perfect example of a toxic man. When Lucy starts college, she isn’t sure of herself yet, but she seems determined to herself. After Stephen, however, she goes into a downward spiral: doing drugs, developing an eating disorder, and even turning down the program that made her go across the country to Baird.

I think I liked this book so much because it really made me reflect on the way that people change themselves for others. We want to fit a picture that someone has, and when we don’t, we destroy ourselves trying.

That’s why the ending of this book was so beautiful. Not for anything that Lucy said or did, but just because of the fact that she could walk away with her head held high. I know from experience what a challenge that can be considering everything she went through with Stephen.

This was just overall a very beautiful, thought provoking book. If you’ve ever been through a toxic relationship, you’ll find this book very relatable and impossible to put down.
