"Lucy Albright is far from her Long Island upbringing when she arrives on the campus of her small California college, and happy to be hundreds of miles from her mother, whom she's never forgiven for an act of betrayal in her early teen years. Quickly grasping at her fresh start, Lucy embraces college life and all it has to offer--new friends, wild parties, stimulating classes. And then she meets Stephen DeMarco. Charming. Attractive. Complicated. Devastating. Confident and cocksure, Stephen sees something in Lucy that no one else has, and she's quickly seduced by this vision of herself, and the sense of possibility that his attention brings her. Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, if exposed, could ruin him, and his single-minded drive for success extends to winning, and keeping, Lucy's heart. Alternating between Lucy's and Stephen's voices, Tell Me Lies follows their connection through college and post-college life in New York City. Deep down, Lucy knows she has to acknowledge the truth about Stephen. But before she can free herself from this addicting entanglement, she must confront and heal her relationship with her mother--or risk losing herself in a delusion about what it truly means to love."--

Honestly reading this book mostly made me nauseous with anxiety. Narrated in alternating chapters, Tell Me Lies tells the story of how Lucy meets Stephen, and precedes to spend the next 7 years hung up on a dude who comes across as a total sociopath. Sadly most of us have a Stephen in our past - playing with our hearts and common sense, which makes it all the more uncomfortable to read. You want to scream at Lucy through most of the novel, whose infatuation with Stephen dismantles so much of her own promise and potential.
