LaShanta Charles earns her literary stripes with her first novel, Lovely Lies. She takes the reader on an unfamiliar journey with two characters, Makynzee (who is not the smartest girl in the world when it comes to love and relationships) and Khalil, her estranged lover who appears to be her knight and shining armor until the truth hits the fan and all hell begins to break loose.
This story is well-paced and well written. It’ll have you tapping your foot, beating your leg, and shaking your head. It’s a jaw-dropping, tantalizing, and motivating story that any reader can easily sink his/her teeth into.
The dialogue was entertaining and straight to the point which keeps the story moving right along. I loved how LaShanta ends the story in a way that is least expected. This ending is one that will take you by surprise. Get your hands on a copy. I know you will love it. Rating: 5 stars
