These are my Happily Ever Novel Thoughts…
Let’s talk about this book for a moment. I want you know something very important about this book. I love Nazarea Andrew’s writing and this story helped me realize M/M romance stories are my favorite romance tropes. They’re passionate, tumultuous, needy, strong, weak, but never whiney. Yes, they may be insecure, but it isn’t because they think they’re ugly or fat. They are secure with themselves, their insecurities stem from caring too much, wanting too much, and not knowing 100% what they want.
These stories tend to be sweeter yet more explosive. This book is no exception. It’s beautifully written and the passion is palpable. There are times it’s down right hot.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, Gabe and Eli are a pair of magnets. They are so good together but so bad for each other. They love each other fiercely and have for most of the past decade but Gabe can’t stop lying and Eli can’t stop running.
I got frustrated a few times at each one and almost in the same instance I wanted to tell them everything will be okay. I felt like I was reading about my friends or family.
Don’t get caught in the middle, but enjoy the tug of war push and pull off Gabe and Eli looking for their Happily Ever After.
Gabriel Delvin is three things: a problem, a liar and irresistible. Elijah Beasley’s known that for years. He knew before they slept together, and he knew when he walked away from Gabe, unwilling to put up with more lies. The problem is he keeps going back.
Elijah Beasley is three things: a cop, a f*cking problem, and Gabe’s. Gabriel Delvin’s known that for as long as he can remember. It’s why they fell into bed together, and why Gabriel stayed in Green County, when all sense said to get out.
But as the underbelly of crime in Green County comes boiling to the surface, Gabe is forced to chose between the man he’s always loved and the family he can’t help but be loyal to.
Love has never been the problem, for these two.
It just might not be enough, this time…
SWEET UGLY LIES by Nazarea Andrews

Nazarea Andrews (N to almost everyone) is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. Which means she writes everything from zombies and dystopia to contemporary love stories.
When not writing, she can most often be found driving her kids to practice and burning dinner while she reads, or binge watching TV shows on Netflix. N loves chocolate, wine, and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids.
N is a self-professed geek and enjoys spending her spare time lost in her favorite fandoms and can often be found babbling about them on social media.
She lives in south Georgia with her husband, daughters, spoiled cat and overgrown dog. She is the author of World Without End series, Neverland Found, Edge of the Falls, and The University of Branton Series. Stop by her twitter (@NazareaAndrews) and tell her what fantastic book she should read next.
