One Tiny Lie - K.A. Tucker I expected a lot, not just from the book, but more so on Livvie. I admired her character from [b:Ten Tiny Breaths|15990969|Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths, #1)|K.A. Tucker|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1368808763s/15990969.jpg|21747190]. Unfortunately, I was greatly disappointed. With the first book, Ten Tiny Breaths, Livvie's character was the opposite from Kacey (the sister) on being the conservative, more reasonable, conventional, and put-together. Like basing on what had happened, Kacey wouldn't have made it through were it not for her. I liked her disposition and proper judgement. To my utmost disappointment, none of those qualities of the previous Livvie was ever present on One Tiny Lie. I was anything but happy with the story, much to a swerve not only in the direction of story, but along with many failing criterion. But honestly this had potential, was it made thoroughly. For one, I don't agree with the idea of her being out-of-control when she's usually the type to be responsible and sensible. I mostly did not like her questioning stuffs that when in reality, practically speaking, the one choice is much safer than the other. That it came to a point that she has to deal with the repercussions of a drunken stupor and cheating haze. And that she knew the "bad-boy" is not to be messed with, and the "good-guy" is the greatest good she will ever get. I understand that she has to deal with the college environment all by your self when all her life she's with someone that more likely she has to look after too. I mean, she knew learned more than to get involve herself to somebody who's as complicated a life as she. But then she indulges on binges. Who knew. Other thing I did not like about the book was the constant reference on physical attributes and liking it so much that it gets to your insides and creates a reaction on the outside. Really? I would have let that pass when she is experienced, but no, she has to be another one of those naive school girls. Go figure. Admittedly, I really did expect a lot from her. I was not a big fan of the first book, but thought it would get better because Livvie. The thing about expecting too much, you'll be discouraged on way or another. xx
