Adam Oliver 𝘩𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 me. Loathed my very existence. He had every right to, but that didn’t make my life any easier the afternoon I had to rescue him on the side of the road.

But worse than rescuing a guy who hated me to his core was the lie I told my parents.

Because I’d just told them that my long-term boyfriend was finally back in town.

My long-term boyfriend who didn’t actually exist.

The one named Adam Oliver—the guy I’d crushed on all through high school.

So the real Adam had no idea that he and I were engaged in a years-long, committed, serious relationship.

And, somehow, some way, I needed to convince him to play along with my one little lie.


One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti was an angsty and slow burning fake relationship turned into something so much more. These two instantly captivated my attention and I devoured this phenomenal story in only a few short hours because it was nearly impossible to put down.

Hollis Vinke and Adam Oliver’s relationship set my heart on fire and burned so bright. I wanted these two to get together so bad because their chemistry was undeniably evident. Even if Adam wanted to deny his feelings in the beginning, there was no denying the connection they had. Their beautifully intense love-hate banter had me swooning and just helped to prove how perfect they were for each other. I absolutely loved everything about these two and I couldn’t help but fall head over heels in love with Adam, who is my newest crush…no wonder why Hollis had one on him for so freaking long!

Whitney Barbetti gave her readers an extraordinarily addictive slow burn romance that filled my heart full of hope, love and happily ever after moments! If you haven’t considered picking up this story, you totally should because it is completely worth the journey these characters take you on. There was a ton to love about this story and let’s just say those secondary characters added a lot to the storyline! I have my fingers crossed we will see more of these characters in other stories because the secondary characters in this book had me begging for more!


About Whitney Barbetti

Whitney Barbetti is really, truly awful at writing in the third person, so we’re just going to change this bio up a bit and write it as first person.

I am married with two boys. When I’m not changing diapers or cutting food into tiny bites, I escape to Starbucks for hours. My blood pressure actually drops the moment I walk in, hear the baristas call my name, and inhale the aroma of coffee beans. And I don’t even like coffee.

I love music and have a playlist for everything. Queen is my very favorite.

I like watching creepy shows when I am home alone but then I instantly regret them once my mind starts breeding irrational fears. I try to channel my fears into my books as a way to cope.

I have about 20 bacon things in my fridge.
