She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the star witness in a murder trial against a drug dealer, Stella is now in the Witness Protection Program. The small-town locals can never know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, the one boy who makes her want to reveal her true self. She knows that telling the truth will only bring violence to this safe haven.
Despite how hard Stella tries to stay under the radar, danger is fast approaching. Criminals have a way of getting rid of witnesses, and Stella may have made the one mistake that could lead the cold-blooded men hunting for her right to her doorstep.

As crazy bookworms yourselves, you know that we accumulate more books than we read. Because of this I will put myself on a 'book buying ban' from time to time...honestly, it usually ends up in complete failure. That is how Dangerous Lies came in my possession. I frequent the gym every day, but my gym is attached to a mall, so I just walk through the mall every day to get to said gym. They always have their hottest reads displayed and EVERY DAY I would walk by Dangerous Lies. It's cover beckoning me and it's enticing premise intriguing me But, I resisted and would walk away. This lasted a week! A week of pure torture! Finally, it was a gloomy, rainy Friday and while walking to the gym I plucked the book up and carried it with a smile to the cashier. Self control be damned!

With all this anticipation and temptation I had high expectations for Dangerous Lies. I was nervous that that week of pure torture wouldn't pay off. Well, that was a foolish thought! Dangerous Lies was everything I hoped it would be and so much more!

From the very beginning you're thrust right into the middle of Stella's life being turned upside down. Imagine being ripped away from everything you know and being uprooted to someplace new all alone. No friends, no family and scared for your life. Becca Fitzpatrick did a tremendous job at illustrating Stella's anger and isolation. It radiated off of the pages. You're immediately drawn to Stella and develop an almost protective-like relationship with her.

Her relationship with Carmina, her new guardian, a retired cop from the Midwest with a strong faith, begins turbulent. Stella taking out her anger on anyone around her. But, after some time and some strong rules of Carmina's, Stella begins to settle into the small Midwestern town and slowly develops a routine. Enter Chet, SWOON! Chet's character reminded me so much of Garrett Hedlund from Georgia Rule. This couldn't have just been me?!

He was charming and caring but a little sad behind the eyes. Chet comes with a background story that will leave you reaching for the tissues. Watching Chet's and Stella's friendship blossom was such a sweet treat. The funny insults and tender moments left you falling in love with them. 

Dangerous Lies comes with a lot of thrilling suspense. It is not your average YA novel. It packs a lot of punch and will leave you on the edge of your seat. I found myself wanting to savour the novel, taking my time, but that was impossible because I was flying through the pages utterly devouring it. Dying to know how this story ends!

I am so happy I broke my book buying ban for this one. Totally worth it!
