Release Blitz & Review for Twelve Truths and A Lie by Christina Lee


COVER DESIGN: Natasha Snow

RELEASE DATE: 9-19-16






BLURB


Aurora Jones has it all—a job she loves as a child and family therapist, supportive friends, and a decent place to live. What she doesn’t have is much luck when it comes to dating men. And not only are her choices terrible, she also hasn’t been boyfriend free since she was a teenager. So she places herself on a sabbatical of sorts. No dating for twelve months.

Cameron Miller has had a crappy year. His girlfriend fell for his best friend and to ease the pain, he drowns his troubles in more booze and women than he can count. When his buddies finally slap some sense into him and urge him to focus on his new position as a special education teacher in an urban school district, he decides to get his act together.

Away from the prying eyes of their mutual friends, Cameron and Aurora agree to hang out once a week in their newly dubbed Chastity Club. Number of members? Two. It’s a chance to find solace, companionship, and something neither anticipated – a burgeoning attraction. But when Cameron invites Aurora to be his fake date at the reunion his ex-girlfriend and best friend will be attending, their passion ignites. What happens in Chastity Club stays in Chastity Club, right? Until they discover that a year of self-truths might actually lead them to true love.


Excerpt:


“Well,” I explained, after swallowing a bite, “depends how, um, sexually frustrated you’ve been and—”
“Extremely,” she said without hesitation, and I nearly choked on the cheese sliding down my throat. “I mean, Richard doesn’t even—”
She smashed her hand over her mouth, looking positively mortified. “Shit, never mind.”
“Who’s Richard?” I asked, thoroughly confused, wondering if I’d missed something in the conversation.
“Oh, God,” she said. “Can you forget I even said that?”
“Not a chance,” I replied, knowing it would bug the shit out of me all night if she didn’t fess up. “Don’t be embarrassed, we’ve talked about plenty of things already…”
As she took deep breaths, I tried to match up the name Richard to one of her old boyfriends she might’ve mentioned. Or was she more mortified that I’d brought up the idea of being sexually frustrated?
“Look, I wasn’t trying to embarrass you,” I said, attempting to dislodge her hand from her face. “Guys talk about jacking off all the time, I don’t know if girls do, but—”
“Of course we do,” she finally huffed out, her eyes bulging. “Richard is the name of my vibrator.”
Oh fucking Christ, what a visual. My dick immediately tented against my zipper. In that moment, I was so grateful the tablecloth was covering me. After I got over the initial shock and stimulation of her bringing up her vibrator, I focused in on the fact that she had named it in the first place. Richard.
I couldn’t hold back a snort and that caused a chain reaction in Aurora, who began giggling and then full-on laughing. Her face was so beet red that when we made eye contact and I said, “Richard. As in dick?” she howled even louder, causing the people in the booth behind her to turn around and stare.


Review: 5 STARS!!

This is the first book by Christina Lee that I have read and I really enjoyed it!! This book was about finding yourself & second chances.

Aurora is an all around fixer. She loves to fix people, it's like a need she has within herself. She is the type of person that has to have a relationship, she hasn't been on her own and when her friends challenge her to be alone for a year, I was happy that she agreed. Aurora needs to find herself outside of  man & relationship. Cameron was betrayed and his job was hurting, and he was kind of opposite of Aurora. Instead of needing to be in a relationship, he turned to an easy lifestyle of easy women. His friends also intervened and told him to pretty much be celibate for a year. Seriously, I loved these characters!!

Cameron & Aurora have a strong connection and the attraction is immediate, but they both are on a hiatus from the opposite sex so instead they put their attraction to the back burner and become friends. I absolutely loved that. A strong foundation is built on friendship. Christina Lee really did a great job writing out all of the emotions and ups and downs that these two characters went through throughout this book. The passion that these characters invoke in each other is spectacular. This book really was a great read and I am excited to see what Christina Lee comes out with next!!
