    Hard to get into, but worth the read.

    This was a hard book for me to get into, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. It is a fast-paced, thrill ride that picks up right where the last book ends. This book builds on the events of the previous book, with the same action and suspense I loved in it. Ellie and Miles are one team I would not want to go up against. My only issue with the book was having to fight to really get into it. I'm glad I didn't give up and finished it. It was well worth the read.

    Great YA read

    It was so fun to read about Eleanor and Miles back at it again! I highly recommend that you read these books in order starting with Chasing Truth. Eleanor is a reformed (sorta) con artist. Miles is her boyfriend who happens to be a teenage FBI agent. When trouble from her past comes knocking, Eleanor finds herself in the middle of something that will have Miles flipping his lid. Don't miss this great YA read that's filled with mystery, romance, and a whole lot of fun. I recommend it.

    Julie Cross upped her game and wrote one of my fav

    WARNING – Spoilers Ahead for Book 1 It’s been over 18 months since I read CHASING TRUTH by Julie Cross, yet the characters and story were still so vivid in my memory, I didn’t need any refreshers. HIDING LIES picks up where CHASING TRUTH left off, with life returning to relative normal, considering Ellie’s past and Mile’s future. With Miles returning to his military academy after spending the holidays with his family abroad, Ellie fills her time with her sister, Harper, Harper’s former Secret Service boyfriend, Aidan, and her classmates from Holden Academy. When Miles fails to meet her as planned after returning from overseas, and Miles’s CIA Agent father makes an unusual request of Ellie, she can’t help but worry about Miles. Things get more interesting when Ellie’s past confronts her in her present, setting up an opportunity to undo the damage from one of the biggest regrets in her short life. With one twist after another, this was the first page-turner I’ve read in a while. I’m a huge fan of Julie Cross, and HIDING LIES reminds me why. Plot The plot is flawless. Everything flows with important information is sprinkled throughout so when something unexpected happens, you realize the hints were there all along. This is a “stay up late and read until your eyes blur” kind of story. While some of it on the surface seems implausible for teens, the author always explains it in a believable fashion. And if if she didn’t, I wouldn’t care, because it’s just that good. The Characters I have so much love already for former con-girl, Ellie, straight-laced Miles, flakey Harper, and G-man Aidan, but in HIDING LIES, Ellie spends more time with Dominic, the moody secret love interest of Ellie’s tragic friend, Simon. Dominic and Ellie forge an almost friendship and I grew to love him in this book. A number of new characters are also introduced who add a lot to the story, and I also got to know and respect Justice just a little bit more. All the characters are deeply drawn and realistic. Top Five Things I Loved About HIDING LIES 1. Miles. He drove me nuts with his conflicted feelings, but he totally redeems himself in the best possible way. 2. Ellie. She’s changed by the events in the first book and is less confident, leading her to make choices I might not have expected before, but given everything she’s been through, they are completely within character. I loved seeing a more vulnerable side of her. 3. Surprises. There were so many unexpected twists, I couldn’t put this book down. 4. The ending. Well done and even more exciting and satisfying than the first book. 5. Teen angst. While different this time around, there is no less drama surrounding Ellie and Miles’ romance. Bottom Line Julie Cross upped her game and wrote one of my favorite young adult novels ever! Disclaimer I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    A great follow up to the first book!

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Eleanor Ames is back with another explosive adventure in Hiding Lies, and readers will be quickly drawn into the complex world that our heroine once again finds herself wrapped up in. Surprises, truths, and shocking revelations will all come to light as Eleanor comes to terms with just how far she's willing to go to save the ones she loves. Back in book one, Eleanor had collaborated with the FBI to try and put her con artist father in prison. Unbeknownst to her at the time, her parent's decided to switch places for the current con, and Eleanor was left watching her mother get dragged off to prison, and living with the notion that it was her who put her there. However, in Hiding Lies, she has a chance to redeem herself. It was her father the FBI truly wanted in the first place, and after she learns about the harsh terms of her mother's upcoming sentencing, Eleanor's ready to make a deal. She'll go undercover as their informant in her dad's newest con, if it means getting her mother clear and free in the process. When a blast from her past shows up in the form of her "cousin" Oscar, Eleanor finds her opening, but she may be vastly unprepared for the job ahead of her, as this con is unlike any her family's ever pulled off before, and it's got Oscar shaking in his boots. With the FBI on her side, Eleanor embarks on Holden Academy's academic trip to New York, which serves as the perfect ruse to get her to the city. Soon she's right back in the family business, helping her father con innocent people, although she definitely didn't plan on having Dominic working along side her, or Miles finding out what she's planning to pull off. Told in Julie's signature writing style, with twists and turns around every corner, Hiding Lies is a great follow up to the first book, and kept me engaged in the story right from page one. I enjoyed getting the extra glimpses into Eleanor's past, and the way her and Miles struggle to trust one another having been brought up the way they were. I've come to expect to be blown away by the ending of every Julie Cross novel, and I was most definitely not disappointed with this one. I thought I had a pretty good idea how everything was going to go down, but I was mind blown with the last plot twist, and just how well it all came together. One of my favorite parts of picking up any of her novels is the romance element, and readers will definitely not be disappointed on this front. No one can write a book boyfriend as well as this amazing lady can, and while Miles and Eleanor's relationship isn't as much of a focus in Hiding Lies as it was in the first one, I loved all the moments we did get between the two of them, and it only served to make an amazing book even better. Hiding Lies was exactly what I was hoping for and more, and I undoubtedly recommend this one to anyone who's a fan of Veronica Mars, Nancy Drew, or suspense/thriller type mysteries. I'll be looking forward to the next book in the series releasing, to find out if Eleanor's story can ever truly be wrapped up! I rated this one four out of five stars, and I only wish they were a little bit cleaner, as I wasn't a huge fan of how much language was contained in it throughout. All in all though it was a great story that I found myself truly drawn into, and I most definitely recommend! Thanks so much to Entangled Teen and NetGalley for providing me with an arc copy!

    Julie Cross delivers an intensely addicting story

    Julie Cross continues her Eleanor Ames series with Hiding Lies. A story of prior con artist Ellie Ames and her teen FBI boyfriend Miles Beckett. With Miles gone for a month long vacation with his government secret agent parents, Ellie stays home ready to start a new semester at Holden Prep but when she finds out that someone from her past is planning a scam that’s way in over their heads in NY, the same destination as her approaching school’s field trip, she decides to intervene using her talents to right some of the wrongs she’d done. Even with the help of her well-meaning friends, this operation is could go lethally wrong. As with the previous book in the series, Julie Cross delivers an intensely addicting story with a witty and independent heroine, a fiercely loyal hero, appealing secondary characters and a fast paced plot with so much action, suspense, twists and turns, I could not put down. The tale crackles both in its moments of intrigue and manipulation when Ellie tries to put all the pieces and players of the con into place as well as the growing relationship between Miles and Ellie. While Ellie practically throws caution to the wind jeopardizing her legitimate future as an Ivy-League student trying to help the FBI for the sake of the people she cares about, Miles’ role in this installment remains a bit of a mystery that was extremely enjoyable to guess at and untangle. Their characters continue to engage, Ellie with her snark and wit and Mile with his devotion and protectiveness. I enjoyed Dominic’s, one of Ellie’s classmates, more fleshed out role as well as the insight into Ellie’s background. Even if some loose ends were left which of course beg for another story and made it a bit less satisfying that the previous book, Hiding Lies is a fun, thrilling read with entertaining espionage and covert dealings. Hiding Lies is book #2 of the Eleanor Ames series by Julie Cross. It is standalone young adult mystery/thriller romance told by the heroine’s point of view with a happy ending.
