Title: One Tiny Lie

Author: K.A. Tucker

“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 live up to this standard 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 someday marry. Her plan definitely does not include Jell-O shots; a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say “no” to; or Ashton, the arrogant—and extremely attractive—captain of the men’s rowing team who makes Livie’s usually nonexistent temper flare. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fit 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 she’s ever known.

My Review:
"Go forth and make thy mistakes."
This is actually my nth time rereading this book. Whenever I feel like I'm in a book slump, it's usually a toss up between this book and another that get me out of it.
"I want you to make your choices with your eyes wide open rather than on autopilot."
I feel a serious connection with this book. Not necessarily the background where the main character comes from but the thought process. Livie's aspirations and her personality are a lot like mine that it's really scary. It's like K.A. Tucker set up a camp ground in my head and stayed there dissecting my thoughts. Livie is me and I think that's why I am completely in love with this book.
"It's a mishmash of misfits and yet... it's family. It's home."
Onto a different topic... Holy Shucks gorgeous men all over this book. (That's also a good reason to read K.A Tucker books. There will never be some no eye candy in any of here books). But also these men aren't just eye candy, they have a huge role in the overall story and their relationship with the main characters is endearing to say the least. And that's the case with Ashton. (To Livie: I would so climb that tree, too).
"You're my forever girl."
Even though I've reread this story many times, nothing is lost. I still feel those same emotions when I first read it and that, my friend, is a rarity. This book (and series) is a must read, everything is in here.
"Help me forget for a while."
