Publisher's Summary

I don’t want you.
You mean nothing to me.
I never loved you.
I turned my words into swords.
And I cut her down. Shoved the blade in and watched her fall.
I said I’d never hurt her and I did.
Years later I’m faced with all the little lies, the untruths, the false realities, the damage I inflicted when all I wanted was to indulge in my obsession.
Lavender Waters is the princess in the tower. Even her name is the thing fairy tales are made of.
I used to be the one who saved her.
Over and over again.
But I don’t want to save her anymore.
I just want to pretend the lies are still the truth.

Wow!! Just knew this book would blow me away!

Eagerly awaited for this to hit my library today and just knew once I started it I wouldn't be able to turn it off. Hunting, just has that gift of bringing you into these worlds and making you feel apart of them as if you are just watching from the sidelines waiting for the emotion and connections to unravel before you. Kodiak and Lavender were so tragically beautiful, and to see them evolve from children to young adults was magical. Hunting did warn her readers that this series (I say that because I'm hoping to see more books for the Pucked children) would be different but I still felt the huge connection to the Pucked series and the beloved characters.

omg this book was so unexpectedly amazing the authors go so indepth with the characters and story narration was perfect lavenders and Kodiaks love story is not your typical love story and they talk about co dependency which i can relate to and how unhealthy it truly is. such a great book

Wrong Narrators

The female narrator, Stella, felt all wrong for Lavender’s character. Lavender is 19 in the book, but Stella sounds like a 30 year old. She also has the strangest inflections, where she ends every sentence by raising her voice. It gets so obnoxious. Stella also was the voice of both Lainey (the hero’s mother) and Queenie (the heroine’s therapist) in previous audiobooks. So it’s odd for her to read Lavender in the same exact voice as these other characters (who also appear in this book). Teddy Hamilton kinda makes sense as Kodiak, as he can play younger. But, as a Californian myself, his fake surfer dude accent gets old real quick and doesn’t really work for Kodiak’s character.

Worth the Wait ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We have been anticipating the story of Alex and Violet Waters only daughter and wow this did not disappoint. A great love story. The angst was good. Not as angsty as I thought it would be but perfect for this story. The epilogue was a bit of a head scratcher. It didn't really foretell too much or elude to the next book of the series. It actually confused a bit. Otherwise, this was a delightful journey, with some great steam in all the right places!! You can't help but to fall deeply for Lavendar and Kodiak, but most of us have been in love with them since they were born

All the feels

Loved the story line it gives all the feels. Every emotion pours through all the characters. Narration was great though I loved the male POV so wish there was more of his voice. Beautiful story and grab the tissues.

Beautiful. So freaking good.

Narration was excellent on both ends. Surprising but very touching storyline on trauma and mental health and how broadly it can impact. Lavender grew into a very strong heroine who stayed true to herself. Kodiak was trying at times as the hero, but we knew he came from good people so there had to be a reason for his temporary assholery. I loved that we got some time with them as a couple and it wasn’t just a quick HEA in the final pages. We got to see them grow and face real life challenges. Their connection was palpable from their beginning and I loved the idea that others could see that they were soulmates before they were even old enough to know what that meant. I also loved hearing about the Puck series parents and seeing how close they still are and that all their children were raised to be close to one another. What a freaking treat this book was. Thank you HH!

Not my cup if tea

I couldn't finish it. Maybe I didn't read the description well enough or was expecting something else but I didn't like the story. It was well written and the narration was great but as someone who has had issues with anxiety in the past, I just wanted to slap Lavender. Plus I was expecting a sexy little escape but...crippling anxiety isn't sexy or interesting to me and that is all that goes on in the first half(at which point I gave up). Maybe it gets better but I just couldn't slog through any more angsty lame duck sadness.🤷‍♀️

An emotional story but I wanted a little more

If I could rate the first half separate from the second half, I would. The first half of the book felt extremely slow paced and minimally progressive. Aside from the very beginning when Lavender experienced some trauma, the following chapters were a lot of reflecting back on her anxiety, experiencing more anxiety, being a typical college student and dealing with her over protective family and friends. The constant hinting at some major fall out between Lav and Kodiak two years prior left me feeling like once whatever occurred was revealed, it'd be anti-climactic. The second half of the book, after Kodiak and Lavender were forced to share the same space and address their feelings helped pick up the story a bit. However, the situations that transpired between them, specifically in the bedroom, felt extremely far fetched for a character like the heroine. I didn't believe she'd behave that way and honestly seemed like the author threw some sexual adventure into the story just for a bit of shock factor. I wanted to like Kodiak so badly, but he was such a grump and so rude and dismissive to Lavender for the majority of the story. I didn't understand him or his choices at all. He obviously had some mental health issues just like the heroine, but they weren't addressed at the depth and detail that hers were. That made him just seem extremely standoffish and rude. I liked how the author executed the HEA for these two characters and did enjoy the last few chapters of the book. Overall, Little Lies just didn't live up to the hype I'd created in my mind. It wasn't as angsty as I'd anticipated and neither of the main characters blew me away. I know I'll be one of the only readers who didn't fall head over heels for this book. The writing was good, I just didn't enjoy the story as a whole. The narration by Stella and Teddy was phenomenal. Their execution of the characters was flawless.

Little Lies

I had a feeling this book would be right up my alley, but I didn't expect to love it quite this hard. I loved watching Lavender go from a scared introvert with anxiety issues to a strong young woman that can "slay her own dragons". It was so hard to see Kodiak push her away because of his flawed reasoning. Helena Hunting, writing as H. Hunting, outdid herself with this beautiful story.  This is one I will reread again and again.  As far as the narration goes, both Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton did a fantastic job of bringing this incredible story and their two characters to life. I was especially moved by the vulnerability and angst in Teddy Hamilton's performance as the younger Kodiak. It was beautifully done. If you haven't already make sure to give this book a chance.

An amazing story even more amazing in audio!

Little Lies is hands down one of my favorite books EVER, and the audio version is even more AMAZING! I had butterflies and chills listening to this story! Teddy and Stella knocked this story out of the park! They way they bring Kodiak and Lavender to life is amazing! There is so much angst and anxiety in this story, and it just broke my heart! The journey these two go through connects them in such a deep way, and even though this is a NA story, anyone of any age can connect with this story. You will not regret picking this story up -- it is absolutely incredible, will break your heart and then put it back together! Teddy and Stella bringing Helena's words to life just gave me all the feels!

What can I say except wow

I’ve known Lavender since she was a baby, seriously. This is a story about soul mates and true love. They’ve been together their whole lives. Yes, it’s been awkward. Yes, they’ve hated one another. When I say hated, down to the bottom on their souls love was always there. I love these characters and the twists in this story. A big fat 5 stars from me.
