Release Blitz ~ #REVIEW ~ All the Pretty Lies by Melissa Toppen

Title: All the Pretty Lies
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Fake Relationship/High School Romance
Release Date: February 12, 2021


All words that describe my relationship with Callum Hanson.
It didn’t start out that way.
We used to be friends.
That is until high school, when Callum decided he was too cool to be seen with his less than popular next-door neighbor.
So, imagine my surprise when out of the blue, after nearly four years of pretending like I don’t exist, he offers to swoop in and save the day by promising to help me catch the eye of the boy I’ve been pining after for nearly two years.
The only catch…
I have to lie. To everyone.
Pretending to be his girlfriend turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would. I was surprised by how well I fit into his world, and how well he fit into mine.
Before long though, the lines between fake and real started to blur. I began to see Callum as more than just Norwood High’s star football player and manwhore extraordinaire. And the more time I spent with him, the more I wanted it all to be real.
But that’s the problem with telling lies. No matter how pretty they sound, at the end of the day they’re still lies.
I just wish someone would explain that to my heart.

*All the Pretty Lies is a complete standalone romance.

I chose this book solely from the blurb. I have been really into bully romances so I thought this one would be a good choice even though I wouldn’t call it so much a bully romance. It did peak my interest very early in.
P is in her senior year of school and home life isn’t the best life but luckily she has her two best friends to get her through everything. She’s lived a life where she thought she was invincible to everyone at school. Little did she know she was untouchable. After spending two long years crushing hard on someone, she is talked into the “perfect” plan to get him. One short week and undeniable attraction changes all those feelings she had.
Callum is the football god, he’s attractive, fit and of course popular. After ending things with his girlfriend and an unpleasant conversation with his neighbour/ex-best friend, he starts to look at her differently ( again). He noticed P crushing hard on his teammate and comes up with a plan that benefits them both. He didn’t expect to fall for P again but how could he not. She was beautiful, funny and didn’t put up with his crap. The week was suppose to get the attention of others and it did but when that week was coming to an end he needed more time. After strong feelings and doing what he does best, run away, he ends their arrangement.
Watching these two become friends again and follow their feelings is definitely a page turner! I highly recommend 'All the Pretty Lies'.
