  • Secrets DO make AWESOME books!

    Crack open a bottle of wine and brace yourself for a volley of emotions! Set aside what you think you know, your preconceived notions, and the limits you think you have because this book is going to shake you up and make you reexamine everything! With the current book hangover I have after finishing Secrets Don’t Make Friends, I’ve decided this book should come with wine. I might as well be buzzed if I’m going to be this hungover! I couldn’t get away from this story even when I didn’t have time to read. I continued to revisit Dinah and Jeyne in my mind each and every time I walked away. At the end was a desperate sprint to finish because I could no longer stand not knowing what was to become of these two! Elementary school teacher Dinah seemingly has it all together. From her manicured nails to her well-off boyfriend, she appears to have it all -- as far as her roommate, Jeyne, is concerned at least. Jeyne’s working her way through her first year of residency planning to being a surgeon, and she doesn’t have time for the weekend parties her self-absorbed roommate allows to go on all night. Dinah thinks Jeyne is stuffy and prickly, and the two barely tolerate one another’s presence. Worse than the parties are the fact that Dinah puts up with the same behavior from her boyfriend that reminds her of her own mother, and she has no desire to watch someone else waste their life being knocked around and degraded. She hears the fights, and she has no intentions of getting involved. Appearances are deceiving, and that sentiment thickens the further you get into the book. The book I thought I would be reading is in no way the book I found between the pages of Secrets Don’t Make Friends, but what I found exceeded my expectations. Lyla will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This unlikely pair has more in common than what they ever believed, and it will take both of them to survive in the end. We often discover the world is not the black and white place we grow up believing it to be. In fact, the gray creeps in quite often, and these two young women are about to face the reality of life and death decisions. I’m finishing this review hours later still thinking about Jeyne, Dinah, and friendship. There’s nothing to be traded for friendships born of trust and the knowledge that the other will be there for you no matter what. I felt their angst, their worry, and their fear. I fell hard for Jeyne and Dinah, and I hung on tight holding my breath to see how their story would play out. Some authors stick closely to one genre and write it brilliantly; however, some authors have a gift for writing a wide variety of genres and doing so just as brilliantly without missing a beat. Lyla Payne is just that kind of author. Whether she’s writing under Lyla Payne or Trisha Leigh, you don’t want to miss ANY of her books!

  • Get ready to love this book!!

    I love reading Lyla's books. She always leaves you either wanting more, or she leaves you completely satisfied. This book does both! Not only was I satisfied, I needed more. So what happens when you have a boyfriend that is abusing you and one night your roommate walks in and sees it happening? Well, you do what any rational human would do... get rid of the evidence. We all have that one friend that would do anything to help out. In this case, they are not so much friends, as just roommates. But that starts to change. Police get involved and let the freak out begin! Lyla has done it again. She has written a book that I love. I really want to read what happens next. This book is great! You will not be disappointed in it at all. She makes the characters come alive on the pages. You feel as though you are right there with them. Get this book now!!

    Thanks for your feedback!
