Cover Design: Cassy Roop @ Pink Ink Designs

Release Date: December 14, 2017

Living modestly in a quiet suburb with her grandmother, Caterina Ryan vows to have no connection with her former life in the spotlight. The door to her past has been locked and the key thrown away. When a home renovation project brings the irresistibly charming and gorgeous Mateo Cruz into her life, she finds herself drawn back to a dark place. A place where dreams were shattered and hearts betrayed. Encouraged to accept a “once in a lifetime” opportunity in the music industry, Mateo seeks to make a name for himself while remaining true to the woman he loves. Their shared love of music brings them closer than ever, but will the temptations of fame and fortune threaten to tear them apart?

Love, Lyrics & Lies is full. Full of love. With a great family (however small) and an amazing friend, love flows. And then there's the gorgeous guy from the truck... It's full of lyrics. Some heartfelt. Others are profound. But what takes the cake is the amount of life changing lies!
So many lies. Too many to wade through. Love is beautiful. Cracks in the new relationship were bound to happen. It's just that the lies...ripped open and gaping chest wound of hurt.

Hurt and in pain aren't generally a promoter for a forgiving situation. Lines are crossed. Tempers flair. In the end, it will all come out!!!
Cat will need to figure out just what she is willing to sacrifice and exactly what she will fight for.

3.5 Stars
Books with hot magicians there really is nothing I like better and throw in a promising storyline and I’m happy unfortunately for me parts of the story fell flat. 

Caterina has moved home to look after her Gram who’s been diagnosed with Dementia. This part of the story was written sensitively and in my experience was very true to life. Cat and Mateo meet when her gram tries to set her up with one of her builders. 
Cat is haunted by her past dealings in the music industry. I would have liked more to be made of this aspect of the story there wasn’t enough detail. 
Mateo’s character seemed to be split in two parts, the strong guy Cat meets and the idiot he turns into when offered his chance in the limelight. The situations he puts himself in, I just couldn’t believe he could be that naive he frustrated me beyond belief. Then there was the situation with her dad it was resolved too quickly for me again light on the detail.
