Summary

I don’t want you.
You mean nothing to me.
I never loved you.
I turned my words into swords.
And I cut her down. Shoved the blade in and watched her fall.
I said I’d never hurt her and I did.
Years later I’m faced with all the little lies, the untruths, the false realities, the damage I inflicted when all I wanted was to indulge in my obsession.
Lavender Waters is the princess in the tower. Even her name is the thing fairy tales are made of.
I used to be the one who saved her.
Over and over again.
But I don’t want to save her anymore.
I just want to pretend the lies are still the truth.

Brilliant

brilliant narration and great story. This can be a standalone but I would recommend listening to the original series anyway!

What can I say except wow

I’ve known Lavender since she was a baby, seriously. This is a story about soul mates and true love. They’ve been together their whole lives. Yes, it’s been awkward. Yes, they’ve hated one another. When I say hated, down to the bottom on their souls love was always there. I love these characters and the twists in this story. A big fat 5 stars from me.

Wrong Narrators

The female narrator, Stella, felt all wrong for Lavender’s character. Lavender is 19 in the book, but Stella sounds like a 30 year old. She also has the strangest inflections, where she ends every sentence by raising her voice. It gets so obnoxious. Stella also was the voice of both Lainey (the hero’s mother) and Queenie (the heroine’s therapist) in previous audiobooks. So it’s odd for her to read Lavender in the same exact voice as these other characters (who also appear in this book). Teddy Hamilton kinda makes sense as Kodiak, as he can play younger. But, as a Californian myself, his fake surfer dude accent gets old real quick and doesn’t really work for Kodiak’s character.

Wow!! Just knew this book would blow me away!

Eagerly awaited for this to hit my library today and just knew once I started it I wouldn't be able to turn it off. Hunting, just has that gift of bringing you into these worlds and making you feel apart of them as if you are just watching from the sidelines waiting for the emotion and connections to unravel before you. Kodiak and Lavender were so tragically beautiful, and to see them evolve from children to young adults was magical. Hunting did warn her readers that this series (I say that because I'm hoping to see more books for the Pucked children) would be different but I still felt the huge connection to the Pucked series and the beloved characters.

a new favorite

omg this book was so unexpectedly amazing the authors go so indepth with the characters and story narration was perfect lavenders and Kodiaks love story is not your typical love story and they talk about co dependency which i can relate to and how unhealthy it truly is. such a great book

Worth the Wait ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We have been anticipating the story of Alex and Violet Waters only daughter and wow this did not disappoint. A great love story. The angst was good. Not as angsty as I thought it would be but perfect for this story. The epilogue was a bit of a head scratcher. It didn't really foretell too much or elude to the next book of the series. It actually confused a bit. Otherwise, this was a delightful journey, with some great steam in all the right places!! You can't help but to fall deeply for Lavendar and Kodiak, but most of us have been in love with them since they were born

All the feels

Loved the story line it gives all the feels. Every emotion pours through all the characters. Narration was great though I loved the male POV so wish there was more of his voice. Beautiful story and grab the tissues.

Beautiful. So freaking good.

Narration was excellent on both ends. Surprising but very touching storyline on trauma and mental health and how broadly it can impact. Lavender grew into a very strong heroine who stayed true to herself. Kodiak was trying at times as the hero, but we knew he came from good people so there had to be a reason for his temporary assholery. I loved that we got some time with them as a couple and it wasn’t just a quick HEA in the final pages. We got to see them grow and face real life challenges. Their connection was palpable from their beginning and I loved the idea that others could see that they were soulmates before they were even old enough to know what that meant. I also loved hearing about the Puck series parents and seeing how close they still are and that all their children were raised to be close to one another. What a freaking treat this book was. Thank you HH!

We're not in the Pucked world my friends.

If you're looking for the fun and laughs of the Pucked world, you won't find it here my friends- there's a reason why this is written under H. Hunting instead of Helena Hunting! Little Lies has the emotions and feels of Ms. Hunting's Clipped Wings series- while there are some light-hearted moments, this book has a much heavier feel to it. I loved the bond between Lavender and Kodiak. I loved how close they were as children, how they were always there for each other. I liked the flashbacks, getting to see what brought them together. Beware, I was tearing up at the prologue, I hated that their friendship was torn apart. It made me sad for both of them, that things conspired to tear them apart, and it made me angry how mean Kodiak could be to Lavender. It made me so happy when they finally broke down and really talked to each other. They had a soul deep connection and I knew it was only a matter of time until they worked their way back to each other. I like both Teddy Hamilton and Stella Bloom, but this one of those times I'm not sure they were the right voices for these characters. Not that they were bad by any means, and they didn't detract from the story, but for me they just didn't fit with how I imagined these characters sounding. Stella just sounded too old for Lavender. Instead of sounding like a 19yo, she sounded more like someone in her late 20s/30s. Normally Teddy would be a no-brainer for me, but in this case I think someone with a deeper, gruffer voice would have worked better for Kodiak. Teddy is so great when it comes to portraying the vulnerability in a character, and I did like his younger Kodiak, but the adult Kodiak, to me, needed a rougher sounding voice, to really fit the character.
