Beautiful Lies; Beautiful Belles #2 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Alta Hensley and Stasia Black

Review Rating:



Beautiful Lies is sinfully hot, dark and twisted, and so good!

Sully certainly picked his belle with perfection because Portia has emotional strength to withstand everything the Order throws at her while Sully is just counting down the days for it all to end. He has contempt for the men, the society, everything about it, but at the end of the day it is the only way he will inherit his family business. So while both of them have the tenacity to go the distance, they don’t exactly begin as partners and work together.

Beautiful Lies is sinfully dirty and Sully and Portia are explosive together. Both of them agree that if they are going to be locked in a room together why not make use of the downtime they have together, it doesn’t necessarily mean they get along, it just means they have great chemistry. They are both so stubborn, this book has moments of great levity. Portia is especially funny in her inner mullings, while Sully is just vocal at calling people out.

Will their tenacity help them make it through or will they take it out on each other before the end of their 109 days?

While reading the first book helped me understand the overall Order just a touch more and Sully’s relationship with his “brother’s”, it is not necessary to read the first book, Beautiful Lies reads as a complete standalone.


Twenty Beautiful Lies stand before me.
I can feel one’s hatred from across the ballroom.
She loathes me and all that I stand for… that’s why she will be my choice, my belle of the ball.

Born into a secret society that strangles the life out of me, I have no choice but to face my demons head on.
Inheritance isn’t about money or land, it’s much more twisted than that…
A sinful birthright.
A dark heritage.
A secret tradition only the most powerful and wealthy are aware of.
The Order of the Silver Ghost.

I will choose her because her disdain is more than I deserve.
The price I will pay for my cruel legacy.

*This is a standalone novel in the Breaking Belles series with a happily ever after and no cliffhangers.
