His lips told me he knew me.
His hands touched like we were old lovers.
His eyes held secrets of a past I'd never known.
I was lost, you see.
Lost as the flowers that grew in the meadow.
The devil told me he knew me.
But lies had a way of unraveling, even if we didn't want them to.
The devil had a trick, for his love was full of acid. Acid that burned at every touch, every linger, and I let it scorch me to my core.
A devil made you sin. And my devil was the worst.
But now that devil wanted my last kiss, and it wasn't one I was willing to give.
He could take the acid and leave the burn behind.
I was keeping my heart even if I died trying.

My Review

Buried in Lies by Author T. L. Smith is a dark romance novel.

“Your eyes are buried in lies, did you know that?”

You know how sometimes you just crave a certain type of novel?  I love dark romance, and I needed a fix. From the moment I opened this novel and began reading, an air of mystery settled in around me.  I was completely enveloped in the strange and intoxicating setting created by Author T. L. Smith.

“Be careful, Jaya. Those who play in the dark carry handfuls of acid ready to eat away at your heart.”

Syler was trouble with a capital R. U. N. But good grief if if I didn’t want to see Jaya get trapped in his gravitational pull and give into him. Jaya was his drug of choice.  One glance, one hit, and he was desperate for the next before the current ended.

“He was like my poison chalice. Because I knew drinking from him one day would kill me. Yet, I still didn’t run. Instead I drank heavily from that chalice. What a fool I was.”

The suspense in this novel kept me right on the edge of going crazy.  I wanted to scream!  I needed help breathing. I wanted answers.  I wanted change.  I wanted redemption. But, as screwed up and insane as this story was, there was a line of sweet that ran through it, at times permeating what it touched. This line made me slightly hopeful for healing and true love.

“I didn’t just love her. She and I fell into the pages of that book and got lost in the words.”

Book endings.  Sometimes they falter. Sometimes they make me feel like I wish for an alternate choice of finality.  Not this one.  At the last pages of this novel, I felt whole.  All the freaks were in their place, and the world could keep on turning. It was fantastic!

“You loving me will destroy us both…”
