Before the Lie
REVIEWED BY JILL
4.5 stars for - Before The Lie - the first book in the Confession Duet by KD Robichaux. This is the sweet story of two polar opposites falling in love at first sight. I read this book cover to cover in one sitting and positively enjoyed every second of it. The only thing I hated was the dreaded cliff hanger ending, but since I went in knowing this was a duet I can and will keep my complaining to a minimum.
Vivian (Vi) Brown was never part of the "in crowd" being quiet and shy she chose to avoid conflict instead of engage it. Growing up she participated in all the activities like dance and sports, but never really found her niche until years later when as a freshman in high school she learned about indoor rock climbing. Vi quickly excelled at climbing and it became something she did everyday for hours at a time. Four years down the road a few months before her graduation two guys walked in to Rock On - the rock wall facility where she is a member - and she is asked to show them the ropes. Vi has an instant attraction to one of these guys, but being the shy awkward person that she is she knows that it won't go anywhere. What Vi didn't realize though is that what she lacks in the confidence department Corbin more than makes up for with his determination...
Corbin Lowe is a twenty-year-old Army specialist from California where he grew up living with his mom until he started running with the wrong crowd and had to go to the Army to get out of trouble. Corbin turned his whole life around and became a stand up guy and leader to other soldiers even moving up in the ranks. The day he and one of his cadets walked into Rock On he was instantly attracted to Vi, but she looked so young and innocent he needed to be sure exactly what he was getting into first. The minute Corbin found out Vi was eighteen he knew that she was his future and he set about making that a reality.
This was a sweet telling of how Vi and Corbin fell in love with lots of laughter and a bit of spice. From the epilogue to the final word I was anxiously awaiting what would happen next. I have a sneaking suspicion book two is going to be even better :)
KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom, who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a Senior Editor for Hot Tree Editing. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her very own real life romance.
