From Lies to Promises by Faith S Lynn

Title: From Lies to Promises
Author: Faith S. Lynn
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: 

With a past buried and left behind, Katrina changes her last name on a search for a normal life. But what is normal, really?
Three years, two amazing friends, and a new future, she thinks she has finally secured it. That was until Ryder. With him she was able to forget her fears completely, to feel more normal than she ever has.
But when her past comes crashing into her present, will he think her past is all lies, and abandon her like everyone else that she thought loved her did. Or will his promises bring her above the dark that surrounds her life.

First let me say... debut novel?  SERIOUSLY?  This lady writes as if she's either been doing it for years or really has lived through some tough situations in her life. Faith S. Lynn has now made her way to the top of our list for reading everything she comes out with. 

"...I'm so far gone I can't even end this disaster of a life..."  

How do you come back from that?  How do you build a life from a statement that is so devastating that you want to end your own life?  Well follow Kat's story and you will see how that can really happen. From the three that make up the puzzle (Kat, Skeigh, and Lexi) to the little sister that steals your heart, you will see that this isn't only a story about a broke heart. It's about a broken soul. 

Ryder... daaaaaaammmmmmnnnn. 
Just Ryder...  That's all you need to know right now. Panty dropping, smooth talking, green-eyed Ryder. Yum :)

He has all the right things to say and says them at all the right times. He helps Kat open up to him and builds those walls that have come crashing down. But instead of building them up between the two of them, he helps her build them around her true family... 

"...I don't want you to hide yourself from me, Katrina. I want to see you. All of you..."   
(I mean.... swoooooonnn...).

If you haven't read this one, add it to your list now!  Right NOW!  Strong men are always a plus; but this one is a double whammy with a strong woman and strong friends that really know what the word family means. Skeletons in the closet really don't mean anything when you have true family beside you. Follow this strong woman as she finds herself again and along the way mets some amazing characters that somehow end up part of that family. 

5 stars and looking forward to many, many more from Faith!

Wonder If Skeigh and Lexi will get to tell their story next?


Excerpt #1:

“That’s what I am doing now, is getting to know you. Should I not want to be a part of your life? Are you a serial killer or something?” He jokes. “Ah, she does smile.”

I don’t even know that I am smiling until he says something, which only causes me to smile bigger. “What are you talking about, I smile all the time.”

“Yea, but that one was real.” He doesn’t say anything more, just starts digging into his food. I don’t press him on what he means because I know. The question is, how does he?

Excerpt #2:

Before Ryder has a chance to react, I take his face in my hands and pull him down for a kiss. For a second he is still, then he kisses me back. This kiss isn’t like the first one, there is no holding back for either of us. I am giving myself over to be hurt, I know this. What’s the saying? Go big or go home. That’s what I intend to do. I ease my hands away from his face and around his neck. His elbow still supporting his weight, his other hand has made it to my hip. He grips it and pulls me closer to him, our bodies lined together perfectly. When his teeth graze my bottom lip in a soft nip, I can’t contain the moan that leaves me. Hearing it, Ryder deepens the kiss.

We come back to reality when the movie starts. Ryder pulls back, my body begging for more, and he has that damned grin on his face. “That makes me very happy.” I smile on the inside, I want to make him happy. To be the reason that smile takes residence on his handsome face.

I am a New Adult author. From Lies to Promises is my debut novel! I am wife to the best husband of the freaking universe and mother to 3 majorly awesome kids! Reading, Xbox, cooking and WINE just barely scrape the surface of who I am. Everyone who knows me will say I am a nerd... and I would agree. Want to know a secret? I am a super hero. True story!

I have an obsession with anything people consider odd and I think learning is the bees knees. I have an Associates degree in Business Management and was an accountant for 7 years. I know, boooring! But I like having a problem and seeing a solution.

Maybe, just maybe, this is why I enjoy writing so much!
