He saw her first, but his friend made the move.

She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth.

They love, they crave, they lie.

Garrett McCarthy, Annabelle Parker, and Milo Roberts were as close as friends could get. They shared in each other's joy during graduations, promotions, and engagements. They consoled one another through heartache and loss.

When one of the friend's life is tragically cut short, it's up to the two left behind to pick up the pieces and find out the truth - no matter the cost. As they slowly start to uncover the nature of his deception, and the very powerful people behind it, they begin to question everyone and everything, even themselves.

Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality and sometimes destroy lives.

T.E. Sivec is the pen name for Tara Sivec. Under T.E. Sivec, she delves into a more serious genre that is her absolute favorite to read - romantic suspense.  She loves reading a book and feeling her heart speed up with anticipation and wanted to be able to give that feeling to her fans.
T.E. lives in Ohio with her husband and two children, living the dream of being a full-time writer.

Tara Sivec has proven to us that she is amazing at funny and snarky with her Chocolate Lover’s series and her debut into romantic suspense is no different.  A highly recommended must read! The quote below is a small part of the expert on the back of the book and it describes this story to perfection. 

“Everyone has secrets - some do it for love while others do it for power. Those secrets can change perceptions, alter reality, and sometimes destroy lives.”

What do you do when you wake up and realize that the life you knew was all a lie? How do you know who or what to believe?  What relationships do you trust? Which are real and which ones are lies? Are you telling the truth or are you also based off a lie? These are the questions Tara has you asking through out the whole book.  There is suspense, there is drama, there is a forbidden love triangle, and there are many secrets that are unraveled and revealed.  Secrets always have that special way of blowing up in your face and causing consequences or damage that sometimes cannot be mended.

“It’s a beautiful lie. It’s the perfect denial. Such a beautiful lie to believe in.”

Garrett, Parker,  and Milo are best friends.  They have loved each other since the day they met 8 years ago, but for two of those friends it is forbidden.  The problem is their lives are so full of lies and half truths that are coming undone in the wake of a tragedy.  Love is tested, chemistry is intense, and the relationships between these friends are forever changed.  I loved our main characters.  They  were strong, kicked ass, and they sacrificed themselves for each other.  The lack of communication between them  caused much insecurity, but when you have known someone for 8 years and every second of your life is so entwined with theirs that is bound to happen. The relationship between Garrett, Parker, and Milo is based off love, guilty, betrayal and fear.  I rooted for them and my heart broke for them each time a new twist was added or another secret unraveled causing them to question everything they knew.

“If you were mine, I would never be able to walk away from you.  If you were mine, I’d worship every inch of your body with my hands, lips, and tongue.  If you were mine,  I wouldn’t be able to stand in the same room as you without running my hands over your skin and tasting your lips. If you were mine…”

A Beautiful  Lie was just that a book wrapped up in drama, suspense, friendship, love and most importantly lies.  There were new twist and turns around every corner. When you think you have it figured out, guess again! Tara kept you engaged. Her characters were well developed and her story a page-turner.  I adored this book so much that I had to finish it in one setting, bed didn’t come to me until 4 in the  morning.  The last few chapters were intense and heartbreaking  and Tara mended us with her beautiful ending.
