Pearl Abbott
I made a choice.
A single lie that changed everything.
In that moment, my life stopped spinning out of control. Not because I found my way, but because I hit rock bottom. Hard.
Now, I have a second chance. An opportunity to turn my life around and become the woman I’ve been too afraid to embrace. And I’m taking it.
I never thought I would meet him. He challenges me, spurs my desire to show the world that one night will not define who I am.

Roman Evans
When the most beautiful blue-eyed blonde I’d ever seen slammed into me, my world was transformed.
But the universe played a cruel joke and the woman of my dreams is a constant reminder of my nightmares.
I lost someone once. A moment, a single action stole half of who I am. To allow myself to give in to my deepest desires feels like a betrayal and yet I’m drawn to her.
So I lie to the world and ignore my heart until it nearly breaks in two and I can’t take it anymore.
Live in the past or fight for the future?
I made a choice.

My Review

​Hidden Lies by Author Rachel Caid is book one in the Hidden Hearts series. It is a hate-to-friends-to lovers story.

“It’s amazing you can even see me from the back of your high horse. You are the most prejudicial, arrogant, judgmental jerk I’ve ever met.”

Rome and Pearl are two peas in a pod, but also oil and water. Both are head-strong and determined. Both have a past that haunts them. These bring out their greatest strengths and their most noticeable weaknesses.

I’m ready to shed my costume and live my life without letting insecurities and fear dictate my every decision.

At the very beginning of Hidden Lies, my heart connected with Pearl. She made bad choices, but was genuinely such a great chic. First meeting Roman, he came off as a bit of a jerk. But, he was also a strong-willed, alpha-male who liked to be in charge.

“…we all have to find the road that fits our feet.”

This was not an easy beginning to a smooth love affair. Heck no! It was a love-hate at its finest. But you know what that means, right?!? All of that pent up frustration had to come out somewhere and when it did, it was HOT! Pearl and Roman together gave us snark, frustration, and even some good chuckles as they slowly grew on one another. My adoration for these two was ever present, but at about seventy percent, my thoughts went to an entirely different level. Their reverent acts toward one another put a spin on love that lifted my heart up and made it glow.

Now that I’ve tasted her, now that I know how perfectly her body fits against mine, I want more.

Hidden Lies was an angst-driven and addictive love story that helped the past be extinguished by the flames of two people’s passion. I LOVED Roman and Pearl and that they had to fight to gain the beauty of love; it made it that much sweeter. I am so excited to get more of this series.

“We’re together. We’re in this deep, and I don’t want out. I want you by my side for every celebration, failure, and everything in between, just like I’ll be at yours.”
