Blog Tour and Review: Lies Unspoken by Lisa De Jong

Meet Lila & Blake in this unexpected love story!


RELEASE DATE: December 14th, 2014


Without warning, his lips crash into mine. At first I fight it, pushing hard against his chest, but he tastes like whiskey. Woodsy and smoky like a campfire, matching the intensity of his kiss. He melts away my anger with his mouth, leaving days’ worth of unrealized sexual tension in its wake.
He tastes.
I lean into him.
He sucks.
My knees go weak.
He isn’t something I wanted. Not three weeks ago. Not even three minutes ago. But as his hands slide up my back, coming up to circle my neck, I’m drowning in want. He tilts my head back to allow himself better access. My tongue tangles with his. Never in a million years did I envision this … how much pleasure I would feel from a simple touch. I guess sometimes we have to have our desires at our fingertips to realize their true depth.
When his lips leave mine, his hands stay. We went from one extreme to another so quickly … I’m not sure what will happen when he pushes the brakes. His face is close, like he wants to kiss me again, but his hands fall away from me instead.
One step back.
Another step.
“Let me—”
Another step. His back hits my bedroom wall.
“Do that again.”
As he exits the room, I’m left wondering what the heck just happened. That kiss took all the cells in my brain and tangled them. I never imagined this, and I hate to admit it but I liked it.



I tried hard not to fall for the bad guy.

My new roommate, Blake, is a jerk—an unemployed artist with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t stand him unless his hands are on me. He makes me desperate for him, and everything he makes me feel.

And then there’s my new boss, Pierce--successful, charming, and extremely good-looking. He goes after what he wants, but what does he see in me?

I try to stay away, but I end up in the arms of exactly who I was hiding from. And when I find out what’s being hidden from me, my heart twists in ways it never should.

I thought I knew him.
I didn't.
The way he kissed me.
The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin.
I thought it meant something, but as it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.


Lies Unspoken is the first book in the new Flawed Love series by Lisa De Jong. It's about a young woman named Lila who is trying to run away from her past. She's wanting to start new in Chicago. She stays in her friend's apartment, and thinks she will be living there by herself until she can find a place of her own. However, her friend failed to mention that she would have a roommate – her brother Blake.

Blake has a bad attitude and Lila instantly hates him (even though he is totally hot). They really clash in the beginning. The sexual tension is off the charts though. But, Blake is broody and distant, and refuses to be in a relationship. Then, Lila starts a new job and her wealthy & handsome boss takes an interest in her. She doesn't know that her new boss, Pierce, and Blake has a connection – and they hate each other. There is something major they are both hiding and neither guy will tell her.

This book is amazing, I loved it. There is a love triangle, but only one man in her heart. Lila makes some bad choices along the way (though she isn't the only one), and she ultimately gets her heart broken. The author does an amazing job of making you feel all of these up and down emotions throughout the book.

I'm emotionally drained now. And if I was an emotional person, I would be a mess – surrounded by tissues. This book has a big, frustrating cliffhanger at the end. I didn't really read through the other reviews, so I wasn't prepared for it at all. I am just dying for the next book in this series. I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait.
