Our 5 Star Review
I received an ARC of Permanent Lies as a part of the release day blog tour.
This story reminds me of how far a person will go to be with the one that they love. Merrick Drake is a bartender at the very bar that he owns. His other passion is dirt bike racing. Merrick Drake lives in the apartment above his bar. Merrick was never interested in settling down, he was absolutely content with having a good night with a girl and moving on. No strings attached. He was not what one would call a womanizer...he treats the girls with respect, of course. Merrick felt that he had everything that he wanted out of life until the day he competed in a dark bike race. It was the day that changed his priorities and perceptions on life...it was the day that he met Amelia Driscoll.
At first Amelia was more of an annoyance. Merrick viewed Amelia as a spoiled rich girl with a new hobby. I mean come on...a girl racing dirt bikes? Her voice was nails on a chalk board to Merrick. Then, Merrick got the opportunity to really look at Amelia and that was all it took. At first it was her eyes..is aqua really an eye color?
Shaken by his instant attraction towards this mysterious girl, he had to clear his thoughts for the race that was about to begin. As always, Merrick was in the lead, but there was a component on his tail. The race was too close to call..The racer pulled up along side him and removed their helmet. What happened next completely surprised Merrick. It was Amelia that almost claimed his title. This alone sent Merrick need and want for Amelia into overdrive. Not only was Amelia beautiful, but she was a bad ass dirt bike racer. Merrick was determined to get to know her so he invited Amelia to his bar for the celebratory party in honor of his win.
After Merrick introduced Amelia to his friends he felt possessive, he felt that he needed to claim her. His friends comments about Amelia's appearance actually bothered him. After spending the night hanging out at the bar Merrick invited Amelia up to his place. They spent an amazing weekend together. Then Amelia was gone. Merrick tried relentlessly to contact Amelia after she departed to no avail and nothing...it was almost like that week they shared together never existed. Merrick was not accustomed to these new feelings and didn't know how to handle it especially since Amelia was not contacting him. Merrick felt that Amelia was avoiding him. How could he have such strong feelings for her, but the feeling wasn't mutual. Merrick couldn't cope with the idea of these feelings being one sided. However as the days, weeks, and months passed he knew that he needed to move on. Merrick tried to move on, but he couldn't bring himself to follow through, Amelia was not only haunting his dreams, but also interfering with pursuing a relationship with other women. Merrick was at a loss. He needed answers that he thought he would never receive.
Merrick's best friend persuaded him to meet a girl. She ended up being great. She was everything that he could hope for, but she was not Amelia. Then, as fate would have it their world collided once again, but what happened next was a chain reaction that would soon turn his life upside-down. How far one one go to be with the person they love? In this story you will find out just how much Merrick will sacrifice in order to be with the girl that stole his heart. Amelia has a complicated life that makes her unattainable, but Merrick will stop at nothing to make Amelia his once and for all.
