BOOK REVIEW ❤ Just One Lie (Just One Night #2) by Kyra Davis

In the instant international sensation Just One Night, sensible Kasie Fitzgerald unleashed her passions—and found herself—through an explosive affair. In Just One Lie, we meet Kasie’s wild and tortured sister, whose impulsivity and lack of self-control has set off a chain of events that changes her family forever.

Melody Fitzgerald is the opposite of the “perfect” daughter. The lead singer of an indie rock band, she is impulsive and creative, with a rebellious streak that both defines her and becomes her greatest enemy. Her lover, the enticing and unpredictable Ash, shares her free spirit and penchant for trouble. On the face of it, he seems to be her perfect match.

So why is she so drawn to her soft spoken, reliable drummer, Brad Witmer? How can a man who wears polo shirts and reads the financial section of the paper be of any interest to her at all? And why on earth does someone like that appear to be so captivated by her?

Before she knows it, Melody finds herself on a path of self-discovery, passion, and affairs of the heart. But will a dark secret from her past derail it all? Or will its exposure be the very thing that unburdens her heart and allows her to seek a future with the one man who loves her completely?

Just One Lie is the second book in the Just One Night series and can be read as a standalone. This book delves into the world of Mercy Rae, born Melody Fitzgerald, the “deceased” sister of Kasie from Book 1, Just one Night. Just One Lie is a story of rebirth, self-discovery, and a second-chance at love. This story is touch and so beautifully written that the reader can’t help but feel for Mercy as she goes on this journey.

I loved the way that Kyra Davis told the story. We meet Mercy at a Y2K New Years’ celebration where she encounters her former lover Ash. The two reconnect and their relationship is less than perfect. We also met Brad, the new drummer in Mercy’s band. He is interested in Mercy but does not make a move until her relationship with Ash ends. Both of these men play a significant role in Mercy’s life and are key to her self-discovery and recovery.

To those readers that dislike cheating, there is no explicit cheating in this story. However, it is implied and confirmed.  I also loved the flashbacks that allow us to see how and why Melody became Mercy. Though that part of the story was hard to read, it was very emotional and key to characters' transformation.

There wasn't much I didn’t like in this story. Sometimes the timeline got a little confusing but it wasn’t glaring issue.

I would recommend this book to anyone that loves contemporary romances with very emotional scenes. You will need a few Kleenex to get through this book.  
I received as an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
