**Received ARC in exchange for an honest review**

"She's completely stunning, and she has absolutely no idea how amazingly beautiful she is."

Epic Lies is about Dax and Giselle who both have been lied to and hurt in their past. First of all I want to mention that I absolutely loved how they met because it was so different. Dax is not your typical rockstar and that is what I loved most about him. Because of his past he did have a thing against relationships but that didn't result him turning into a player. He was very mature, protective and fun. Just like Dax, Giselle had a distrust towards the opposite gender. When they first meet they both feel attracted to each other. They accidentally meet again a couple of times in other places and it was like they were meant to be. 

Normally I don't like flashbacks but they fit perfectly in this book. We get present and past POV from both characters. So we get to see what happened in their past. There is also a twist in this book that I really liked. What I most liked about this book was the maturity of both characters and how they didn't push the other away even if they were done wrong in their past. I enjoyed seeing how their relationship developed and how they got over their own issues.

Epic Lies is a fast paced story with great characters that were perfect for each other. It is a great addition to the Epic Fail series and I can't wait to read the next book. I also loved Giselle's best friend Mia because she was such a fun and crazy character. She needs her own story!

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.

Reading The Forever Family series is not required as these are all spin- off/standalone novels, but it may enhance your experience.
