Product description

Product Description

I was broken before I met Sebastian Pryor, but he decimated me. I swept the ashes of myself into a pile that I kept safe for thirteen years. Believe me it wasn’t pretty, oh but people thought we were perfect. I hate myself most days. I hate that I feel for him as much as I loathe who I’ve become with him. This story is hard to hear. You know what the worst part is? You’ll see part of you in me. You’ll hate that. You won’t tell anyone.

My story is about cracks. A description or telling of how cracks in a marriage, a life, a personality, a heart and a mind begin and continue for years without anyone knowing. You don't always see what causes the fissure, but you feel it. Can you remember who you were before all of this started, before your life became a jumble of deceit, longing and regret?

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a happily ever after.

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a fun time out from their life.

This book isn’t for anyone, but me.

This is my story. I won’t apologize for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars He fixed it. He fixed her ! 17 June 2017

Snakes don't breed Caterpillars ! How could the Pryors be any different !
There's a happy-go-lucky Rebecca Simmons. She's swept off her feet by the handsome Charming Prince- Sebastaian Pryor. And she loses her glass slipper on her wedding day...never to get it back. She wanders bare feet in her marriage, the broken pieces making her bleed everyday !!
He's a monster , a Quiet sadistical Devil 
The Devil started out as an Angel Once...
He woos her, kisses up her, makes love to her. They're the picture perfect couple in public, yet in private , he dominates her, suffocates her, beats her, chokes her ,controls her & breaks her. 
And like a serial Adulterer he lies incessantly!!

"I love you—this one meant something to me. 
No one will ever love you like I do—this one keeps my feet planted where I am because I’m so broken now no one will love me. 
I’ll be faithful—I fell for this time and time again. 
I’m sorry—was the worst of all the lies he told, because it allowed me to have hope."

He slowly chips away her life
starting with her trust, her love, her friends, her family, her credit, her status and ultimately her sanity
she's stripped bare of everything , no one to turn to help to and nowhere to go.
Drowning. Helpless. Trapped 

"I’m stuck to the ground with the water rising all around me. It batters me and I fall despite my fight. It slaps me in the face and I spit it back out. It begins to cover my nose and I push to my tiptoes. It’s in my hair, I’m holding my breath. I’m drowning. Water is everywhere and there is nothing I can do to stop it."

Her son is the only reason she stays where she does, endures whatever horrific abuse she has to, and maintains a facade for.
What happens next is for me to know and you to find out !!!
It's a dark , dismal story. Pucks with your mind so bad , I'm still reeling from the after effects !
Rebecca is the ultimate victim with literally a bulls eye on her forehead for cheating boyfriends. So much so that it shatters her confidence level to smithereens. The typical blaming herself syndrome seeps in and lays foundation in her soul

“I assumed maybe that’s what I was made for. To be the girl that men cheat on. The girl whose body didn’t work right. To be the girl who gets what she deserves. I did everything for Sebastian so I thought maybe he wouldn’t cheat on me like you did, but I was so very wrong. I mean...that was the definition of wrong.”

Very twisted, mess-with-your-head read. Complex characters, very intense situations, some graphic details and all in all a perfect Dark book !!
By the end I'm screaming- Whyyyyyyy...why her 
As Bash says - Why Not?
5 WTF ! Are ya Kidding Me ! Stars

5.0 out of 5 stars RL Griffin ripped out my soul. 13 November 2015

*ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review*

I’m sitting here after just finishing Quiet Lies and I am baffled. I’m blown away and I really have no idea what to write for this review so I’m just going to wing it and be completely honest.

This is the second book I’ve read by RL Griffin, the first being Beyond a Thread. I loved that book but unfortunately haven’t gotten around to finishing the series or reading the rest of her books. I saw on facebook every now and again that RL was writing this story and I thought it looked interesting but really had no idea what it was about. She posted the blurb a week or so ago and my curiosity was peaked even more. So I commented on her post and RL being the amazing person that she is, sent me an ARC. I was very interested in this story so I started reading it right away but still had no idea what I was getting myself into. She would tell me to enjoy the ride and so on but I was like, meh, whatever. I’m sure it’s like every other romance book but with a RL twist. Well boy was I wrong and I’ll be the first to admit it. Never assume people. Never. Assume. There was a twist alright. Holy balls on a cracker. Now for my review that I hope I can write without giving too much away…

Quiet Lies…the title tells it all and the blurb, although interesting and pulls you in, it’s nothing compared to the story at hand. The first 10 chapters or so, I kept thinking how interesting this book was and so on. I was sucked in but life got in the way and I had to put the book down. A couple days later or so, I read and read and read, until my eyes grew heavy, I started seeing double and my heart hurt. I messaged RL a billion times, yelling at her, demanding answers that I knew she wouldn’t give but asked the questions anyway.

Once I got to around chapter 15 or so, the story changed. Something switched and I could even feel it inside of me. I NEEDED to finish this book. My husband would ask me over and over if I was okay and I just told him I was reading. I told him I was trying to figure this book out but couldn’t.

This book…so many feels. It’s one of those stories that grip you from the beginning. It rips out your heart. It leaves you with so many questions. How could this happen? Why did it happen? What would you do? And so on. I found that I would ask myself, what would I do if I were in this situation? How would I react? Would I be strong enough to deal or would I break?

Rebecca Pryor is my favorite female lead. Ever. Out of the books I have read over the years, something about her sticks with me and will stick with me forever. She’s real. She’s human. This story is about how she deals with everything that has been thrown at her. How strong she is. How strong she is not. RL wrote this book in a way that I could FEEL what Rebecca was going through. The detailed description of her anxiety took my breath every time. At the end of each chapter I found myself taking a deep breath so I could prepare myself for what the next chapter would hold.

Sebastian Pryor…I loved him. I hated him. I missed him. These words were said by Rebecca and I felt just the same. Something about him, although deranged and twisted, I was intrigued. RL wrote the actions of a sociopath in a way I’ll never forget. Sebastian will forever haunt my dreams.
And the end…I never saw it coming. It all made sense but I was never able to predict it.

RL Griffin captures you in this intense and bone chilling story about love, betrayal and everything evil. Once you think you figured something out, a twist is thrown in and everything changes.

This will be one of those stories that sticks with me. Forever. Thank you, RL, for taking me on this amazing journey. This book is hands down, my favorite of 2015.

I rate this story a million gut-wrenching stars.

This was an interesting book. At times it almost made me sick to my stomach but I kept reading-had some nightmares while reading it too. I had a difficult time liking Rebecca and at times feeling sorry for her. I then would feel like I was betraying women as a whole. Another reviewer said it gets better the more you read and I agree with that. I saw one of the twists coming but not the last one. I don't like when characters have no "gray" to them and Sebastian did not-just pure evil! A dark, dark story but the narrator warns of this at the beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed! FIVE STARS for Quiet Lies! 29 November 2015

I'm so pleased to meet a new author! I'd started about 7 books that didn't hold me. BUT this book, from the start, had me hooked and drawn into the story. (And WHAT a story!)

Things begin with Rebecca about to deliver a eulogy at her husband's funeral. Then, Rebecca shares her thoughts about her marriage to the controlling Sebastian. As I follow her story, I'm thinking she's married to a sociopath. The narrative moves forward, and back and forth, as we see Rebecca at different times in her 14 years of being under the thumb of Sebastian. Just an ordinary "marriage as hell" story? No! The twists, turns, and even the knots of the plot bring a new story to the reader. I was fascinated, and read the entire book in a day.

Not to be missed! FIVE STARS for Quiet Lies!

4.0 out of 5 stars A damn well written " page turner "" cant go to bed yet" read if you like a dark,twisted,defeating story with no HEA. 19 November 2015
By Well Read Nana 1/24 - Published on

3.5 star read, I will say without a doubt this author can tell quite a story ! The author's ability to take you on a journey that keeps you up far too late and turning the pages as fast as you can read to try to keep up with all these many twists and turns was impressive for me. The twists and the turns never stopped from the beginning until the very sad end. This story is sad, and its also disturbing and upsetting and there is No, and I mean NO HEA at all just so you are fairly warned. This book is a well told emotional distraught ride for the reader, it is certainly not your average" my husband is a cheating liar book " far from it ,this story is a dark read yet very unique . I will say it was a very dark read for me that is for sure. I would have never ordered such a read if I had known for sure how dark this book would end but I'm also not sorry that I read it because it was a damn good page turning story and I have to give credit where credit is do even if wasn't what I wanted to see happen in the end. Damn this author had some deep twists . The author really deserves a 4 star review from me but with that ending I just couldn't and not because it wasn't a great dark ending because it was , I just wanted a happy one but that is not what this book is about. If your looking for a well written twisted read with so many turns about a marriage made in absolute hell with a ending that leaves you sad, speechless ,defeated and thinking with all your might ******HUGE SPOILER ALERT LINE COMING ******* the famous line " the sins of the father , just wow !!!!!!.
