My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Thanks to Netgalley for this free Ebook!
Lang and his mother move into a small cottage at the back of retired rockstar Ben Nevada’s East Hampton home. So when Nevada asks Lang to show Hugette (a family friend) around the area, it comes as a bit of a shock.
But that’s not the only surprise for Lang, he inevitably begins to fall for Hugette, despite the fact that he is gay and even has a boyfriend….
Fist of all, this book is slow. Slow in the sense that nothing actually happens until just after halfway in the book when things speed up slightly. The second half of this book is the only thing stopping me from giving this book only one or two stars. If you expect “Hello,” I Lied to be full to the brim of self-discovery then you’d be wrong. Sure, Lang discovers more about his sexuality in the last half of the book but this wasn’t an inspirational coming-of-age story. I found “Hello,” I Lied to be incredibly bland.
The best thing about this book was undoubtedly Hugette. I expected her to be this bratty poor little rich girl but instead she was a witty and outright funny character.
If you say my name Yougette, you get nothing!
For sure, M.E. Kerr has the ability to create comedic and likeable characters.
In conclusion, if you want a book that pulls you in and keeps you on your toes, sadly this book isn’t for you. “Hello,” I Lied is not a bad book , instead it’s just very disappointing and did not live up to my expectations.
