Title: The Lie that Binds us
Series: Broken Truths Hall #1
Author: Isabella Phoenix
Release date: 17 August 2021


Aaron showed me what it was to feel protected, loved, and cherished. Then, he destroyed me without so much as a goodbye.

He left me alone, to pick up the pieces of my shattered heart. Years went by and I fooled myself into thinking I had moved on, content with a secure job and the new man in my life.

Unfortunately, something that was truly broken cannot be fixed without leaving deep scars. Those old wounds rip wide open when Aaron storms back into my life. He wants to rehash the past and stir up long buried feelings. But I can’t give in to the fire of passion I’ve carried for him all these years.

There’s too much at stake.

When Aaron vanished, he left me with a secret. One I will protect at all cost. What do I have to lose if the truth comes out?

The Lie that Binds us is the first book in the Broken Truths series and tells the story of Ella and Aaron.

The Lie that Binds us is the first book I’ve read by Isabella Phoenix, so I didn’t know what to expect. I read the synopsis and the story sounded really interesting. I was also under the impression that The Lie that Binds us was going to be a standalone, so I was really surprised when it ended with a cliffhanger. I really enjoyed reading The Lie that Binds us, the book was fast paced and I really wanted to know how to story was going to end. 

As I mentioned above, I didn’t know what to expect from this book. The synopsis is a bit vague if you compare it to the book itself. It makes you wonder what’s going to happen to Ella and Aaron. I really liked getting to know Ella and seeing her change towards the end of the book. And Aaron… I immediately liked him. He’s so good for Ella even if he shows it in a special way.

The Lie that Binds us was such a good book and I’m really looking forward to the next book, The Truth which Finds us! I want to end my review with a note that this book talks about an attempted rape (there’s no trigger warning at the beginning of the end of the book). So please be aware of this before you start reading The Lie that Binds us. But if you are able to read about such a topic, then I really recommend this book if you’re looking for an ‘interesting’ Romance read!

About the author

Isabella lives near London in the UK with her husband, two children and two furbabies. She fell in love with reading at a young age, always getting lost in a book. In fact, she loved it so much, that her husband suggested that she write one of her own, and so she did.

Isabella loves all the cheesy Netflix series, as well as all the Disney films. Just don't get her to watch a scary film, because she will make it a hundred times worse, being terrified of things going bump in the night.

When she isn't busy writing, she can be found spending time and exploring new places with her family.
