Publisher's Summary

In this follow-up novel to the top-selling Ten Tiny Breaths, Livie Cleary faces a new set of challenges as she navigates freshman year at Princeton, wild parties, and the gorgeous rowing team captain who is everything she doesn’t want in a guy, or so she thinks....

"Make me proud." These were the last words Livie’s father ever spoke to her. In the seven years since her parents’ tragic death, Livie has done her best to keep this promise through her every choice, word, and action, while looking after her sister with strength and maturity. But with college right around the corner, unexpected challenges will test her resilience - and her heart.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy to marry someday. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots; a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say "no" to; and Ashton, the arrogant - and extremely attractive - captain of the men’s rowing team who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

    Story
    "One Tiny Lie"

    This book was great not as captivating as the first book. Didn't need an entire box of tissues this time. You will still be drawn in from the beginning. This story is set in college. I laughed and cried (a tiny bit) at times. I had a love / hate thing with Ashton. I felt bad for Conner but it just wasn't meant to be. You won't be disappointed with this book.

    Story
    "Loved it! Loved it! Loved It! Oh yeah, And I LOVED"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book evoked an array of emotions. Laughter, sadness, anger, confusion, empathy, angst, joy, love. What a great book. At first I really despised Ashton but eventually I feel totally in love with him. I felt sorry for Conner because he ended up getting the short end of the stick. It was great that the characters from the previous book Ten Tiny Breaths made an appearance in this book. This was a truly enjoyable listen!

    "Great!"

    This is the next book after Ten Tiny Breaths. Takes place in a completely different setting so it changes things up a bit with a college setting. Livy goes to Princeton and struggles with relationships between two different guys, the one she should be with and the one she wants to be with. It keeps you hanging on to see what is going to happen next. I thought this one was really good. Had some humor and of course some drama as the YA stories do. Hard to put down for sure. Worth the credit.

    "PERFECT FOLLOW UP TO 10 TINY BREATHS!"

    The first book was still the best but this was an excellent follow up and I loved the conclusion. The author did a wonderful job keeping you guessing right up until the end. This was an incredible story and more than worth the credit! I look forward to listening to more by this author and narrators that did a wonderful job telling this incredible story!

    "Not quite there!"
    Any additional comments?

    I am so sorry! I LOVED LOVED LOVED AND ENJOYED "Ten Tiny Breaths" so much that i even read it more than once. It was such a beautiful story, it was hard for me to let go.Given the success of TTB, I was looking forward for this book; Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations, in any way, not even close. The story was not compelling like its predecessor; it was boring actually. While the Author presented a strong, independent, smart Libby in TTB, i was flabbergasted to find a weak, insecure and cry-for-everything Libby, it was upsetting. I don't know how many times i rolled my eyes, amaze at the absurdity of the plot. I like the author, i just didn't like this book. This one wasn't a winner, but there is always a next time

    "Sadly This book was Not for me"
    Any additional comments?

    I Must say I love K. A. Tucker as an Author and this is the first book by her that i couldn't finish.. There is - most likely - nothing wrong with the book, It was just not for me. I couldn't get into the story. I have listened to lot's of books where the characters are young adults but just couldn't connect. I Just loved Elizabeth Louise interruption of Logan's voice, she's a wonderful narrator. :)

    "What a cliché story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story lacks the originality that I was hoping for: pretty girl fell for gorgeous broken boy, saved him from his misery, then they lived happily ever after. The story is every college freshmen girls’ fantasy, a good portion of the book is devoted to crazy party scenes, model-looking girls mingle with the most popular boys in an elite school. What’s crazier is her family and friends, who encouraged her to get wasted, make out with random guys, and not care too much about grades, all in the name of following her heart’s desire. The book shouldn't be called "one tiny lie", the main heroine basically cheated on her boyfriend the entire book. The book is so far from reality, I find it hard to enjoy the story.


    What could K. A. Tucker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If the author could stay a bit closer to reality, this might have been a better read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the heroine helps the little boys with cancer.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from One Tiny Lie?

    I would definitely cut the ending. I think this would be a more powerful story if the guy doesn't end up with the girl, which is closer to reality.

    Story
    "A Close Second..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    After reading "Ten Tiny Breaths", I was eager to pick up another audiobook by this author. I like this book, but it took me a little while to get into Livvy's character after her being a dormant character in the first book. The narrator used the same voice almost for both Livvy and Casey, which made it hard to distinguish...don't let that deter you, though. I'd still recommend this book to a friend.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the courtship between Livvy and Ashton. Connor seemed nice too, but..well, you'll see. Definitely liked the quick dialogue.

    The beginning seemed really forced and not very realistic. It seems like Livvy was pushed into being the stereotypical college freshman and that bothered me, but I guess it works with the rest of the story..I don't want to give anything away.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really like when Ashton and Livvy start admitting their feelings for one another.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but not as much as "Ten Tiny Breaths". I liked the story, but wasn't as compelled to pick it up every waking moment of my spare time.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad followup for "Ten Tiny Breaths" but could've been a tad more realistic, especially in the beginning. I do like where the plot goes, but it's more predictable. You should still check it out!

    "May appeal to a young teenage girl"

    Boring and predictable. The characters are such cliches. It make be appealing to a young audience but I was very disappointed.

    Story
    "Heart wrenchingly wonderful"

    I am a hopeless romantic and not easily convinced. I found true emotions and in depth feelings in the main characters who kept me interested in every little thought that was written for them. I wanted more in fact I was craving for more.

    What I came to realize about this author is that she develops these romantic stories but always has a card hidden upon her sleaves which is pulled out the appropriate moment and makes the story all the more interesting. Don't be fooled by the trilogies and series which are now a trend. Her stories are hard solid stand alone but connected with the characters which unfold in each book.

    I cried a lot in this one, but crying is clenching the soul and we need that. I fell in love with this author's writting and I went and bought all of her available books on here.

    The narrator is doing justice to the writting and is making the story all the more believable, as if you are watching a movie.

    Don't miss out on a great romance. You will not regret your money spent buying this.
