Badass Book Review: With This Lie by Kat Savage

 

“I just didn’t see you coming…”
There was so much I didn’t see coming while reading With This Lie. I was initially giving this book the side eye because of the premise (“she strictly dates married men”) but Kat Savage hit it out of the park with her sophomore novel.

Kat wrote characters that were truly products of what life had thrown at them and I think we can all relate to that on some level.
