*****REVIEW***** THE LIE by Karina Halle



Their love led to a lie
Their truth led to the end

Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident and his job from his subsequent downward spiral, he’s finally moving forward, getting a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and a new life in the city. Slowly, but surely, he’s pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him.

Until he sees her.

Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much she thought she’d die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she’s in London, she’s ready to start again.

Until she sees him.

Because some loves are too dangerous to ever indulge.
And some loves are far too powerful to ignore.
Their love just might be the life and the death of them.

Brigs McGregor is a professor from Edinburgh, Scotland. He is in an unhappy marriage when he meets his soulmate Natasha Trudeau. They share an instant connection & develop a friendship. Just as Brigs is thinking to take steps to try at having something more with Natasha, tragedy strikes & Brigs loses his wife & child in an accident. He is a broken man just trying to survive now. He is left in pieces, totally demolished by guilt & shame. He breaks things off with Natasha & tells her they were a huge mistake.

Four years later Brigs is trying to piece his life back together. Tired of punishing himself he is finally ready to move forward with his life. He takes a new job teaching at King’s College in London, England. He is trying to move on when he see’s Natasha one day at the University. His whole world is turned upside down, by a woman he thought was now just a ghost to him. Someone he never forgot, but could never have.

Natasha is stunned to see Brigs again too. She has moved back to London to go back to school & start over. She has suffered a broken heart the past four years after Brigs McGregor destroyed her. She has tried to move on, but her memories of Brigs continue to haunt her. All her emotions are still raw concerning Brigs & she truly never thought she’d see him again. They shared something so rare & special that neither had ever experienced before with anyone else. Their feelings were so intense they felt lost in one another.

They talk & still feel as drawn to each other as before. They both wonder if it’s fate. If they were meant to cross paths again. They begin to spend time together & things between them are just as magical & electric as before. Being together again, they both felt was something that could never happen. As they navigate & explore this new relationship Brigs is just as addicted to Natasha as he once was, & Natasha feels like all her hopes & dreams are coming true. They both realize what they have is something worth fighting for & they don’t want to let each other go ever again!

-I only want her.

-I’ve always only wanted her.

They are just as in love as when they first met. These two are truly soulmates who found each other at the wrong time in life but were given a second chance at love. This story is somewhat controversial but very real. The hurt is devastating at times, but the love is beautiful! As usual, Karina writes some deliciously hot scenes & gives us a story full of emotion. I also like how this book goes back and forth from the past to present, & I adored Professor Brigs McGregor!!! 😀
