Victoria Klahr will be on tour April 20-27 with her novel That's a Lie Seth is back. When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. I tried. Boy, did I try! But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more… Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that’s been growing since Seth came back. Do I even deserve to be loved?
“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.” I came back for Josie. I knew I’d have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend. I can’t pretend I don’t want more. I’m willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved. It’s a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me. So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.

I was hoping that they would get together in the first book, as Josie had feelings for him, but had convinced herself that he didn't feel anything towards her. He didn't help matters by always keeping her at arms length. She attempted to move on from her feelings, but that ended in disaster with Blake Porter.
Josie is dealing with a lot of guilt over everything that happened before Seth left for two years. Also, everything that happened six years ago, and then with Blake have left their mark... she doesn't want to destroy the friendship with Seth completely. She wants him, but is afraid of what will happen.
I so loved this book. I so loved Seth in this book!! Josie has been broken in the most horrible away, and he has always been there to protect her. He's helped her get back to a new reality, and gone through self-defence classes with her to prevent it from happening again. The last thing he sees her as is a victim, and she's determined not to be a victim again.
Not wanting to push her too quickly, he bides his time with her. He knows she's vulnerable from what she's gone through since he left, but he knows her like no one else, and only wants to be with her.
Absolutely loved Seth!!!! Did I say that I'm in love with him???
