"Lies my girlfriend told me" - julie anne peters
When Alix's charismatic girlfriend, Swanee, dies from sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is overcome with despair. As she searches Swanee's room for mementos of their relationship, she finds Swanee's cell phone, pinging with dozens of texts sent from a mysterious contact, L.T. The most recent text reads: "Please tell me what I did. Please, Swan. Te amo. I love you."
Shocked and betrayed, Alix learns that Swanee has been leading a double life--secretly dating a girl named Liana the entire time she's been with Alix. Alix texts Liana from Swanee's phone, pretending to be Swanee in order to gather information before finally meeting face-to-face to break the news.
Brought together by Swanee's lies, Alix and Liana become closer than they'd thought possible. But Alix is still hiding the truth from Liana. Alix knows what it feels like to be lied to--but will coming clean to Liana mean losing her, too?
WHY AM I WAITING ON IT?
I'm not normally into gay/lesbian novels but I thought that this was more on emotional level and could be interesting. I know there are a lot of people out there with weird fantasies and I really think that's fine. But "Lies that My Girlfriend Told Me" really looks like an interesting read and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
