Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Diane

Trudy Stiles his one of those wonderful authors that keeps me passionate about reading stories that I can escape into even if it's for a few hours. Wonderful storylines with great characters. I was looking forward for more in this series that include members of a rock group. It's so much more than that, this story goes above and beyond my already high expectations. This is a 5 star story for Epic Lies.

This is Dax's story, one of the Epic Fail member. He has some trust issues due to being lied and manipulated in the past. So he's not looking for long term commitment. Gisele has had a traumatic experience where she was left with some trust issues also. Then one night, fate intervenes and puts them in each other's paths. Together they will learn to trust again. This story goes back in forth in time, to different events in their lives. Fate has been intervening for quite a while in their behalf.

I would describe this story has being hopeful, engaging and addicting. Once I got into this story I had a difficult to pull myself out off. This is not an overly dramatic sad story. Although there are a few times where I was heartbroken but Gisele is a strong, fierce young woman who doesn't victimize herself. There were a few other sad moments, but I won't say more.
I truly enjoyed this brilliant, compelling story. This story has heart and soul. Trudy as a unique way to tell a story. She wants us to be intrigued until the very last page. What I also liked was that the story was not centred on Dax being a rock star but a person with real life issues.

It's beautifully written love story that was paced just right. The concept and the plot was well thought out. Very difficult to put down once I started reading it. I couldn't help but feel all their emotions and feelings through these characters.

This a standalone book told via dual POV with an HEA. I strongly recommend this book, trust me it will be worth your precious time and money. This is the second book in the stories but they safely be read as standalones. I can't wait for Epic Love.

Epic Sins (#1) – November 4, 2015

Garrett Armstrong, the lead guitarist of Epic Fail, womanizer and not so nice guy, leaves a trail of women in his wake. A recent one-night stand wreaks havoc, and turns his present completely upside down. He’s faced with a reality that he never expected. Never wanted.

Samantha Weston can’t escape the black cloud that follows her. She suffered an unspeakable loss as a teenager and has been climbing uphill ever since. As soon as her life starts to become manageable she’s slammed with another tragic event, forcing her to abandon the only thing in life that she cherishes.

A heartbreaking situation throws this unlikely pair together. They’re forced to face things that seem impossible. Can Sam get past the demons that haunt her? Can Garrett accept a fate he swore to avoid at all costs?

Can they conquer the sins that are poised to destroy them or will they become an Epic Fail?

Epic Sins is the first book of the Epic Fail series, a spinoff of The Forever Family series.
