Would I Lie to You?: A Novelby Trisha R. Thomas
Synopses & Reviews
Spirited, successful Venus Johnston is back--in the long-awaited sequel to Nappily Ever After.
Venus feels history repeating itself, and she's not loving it. She ended a relationship with Clint because he couldn't commit, cut off her long, processed hair, and started on a new path with a new boyfriend. But she's been with Airic for more than two years, and they still haven't set a wedding date. When a temporary project takes her to Los Angeles, Venus welcomes the opportunity to spend some time with her family in California and to see if a little absence makes Airic's heart grow fonder. But in L.A., savvy, ambitious Venus runs head-on into a new complication--the equally savvy and ambitious Jake Parsons, a former rap star turned clothing designer. Jake's as suave as he is successful, and ten years her junior. Venus's job is to create a marketing campaign for his urban wear. Jake's job, it seems, is to distract her from her long-distance romance with Airic.
When Venus's mother is diagnosed with breast cancer, her entire world seems to crumble. Everything she thought would make her happy--her new look, her successful career, her fiance--can't fix the sadness and emptiness she feels. But before she throws in the towel, she's offered one more chance, a chance for change, for growth, and maybe even for a new love. Will she take it? Or give in to the notion that her life will always be close but no cigar? Moving, romantic and inspiring, Would I Lie to You? is one woman's happy, lighthearted story of giving in instead of giving up.
