Before The Lies
If I had known from the beginning what he would do to me, would I have changed anything?
No matter what had happened with him I never would have been led down the path that brought me to my soul mate.
For that I could never be sorry.
I just wish I'd had time to make my time count.
I wish I'd been able to see her grow.
I wish I could have said goodbye, to have felt his touch one last time.
The other man in my life took that away from me but I would never change a thing.
Although he was my undoing he was also my saviour, I just wish I could have been his.
This is my part of the story.
Before The Lies is a prequel to Elaine May's successful Truth series, although it can also be read as a standalone novel. Readers should be aware of its uncompromising storyline as it depicts the harsh reailty of Rosa's story.

Before The Lies
This is a captivating read. It keeps you interested, and moves quickly. When the story begins we get a bit of back story on Isla and her father, who were part of a family that they were not related to by blood. Isla losses her mother as a newborn and then at 12 loses her father, grandfather. her aunt and uncle; and is then taken by her remaining uncle and a cousin. Isla gets shipped off to a boarding school until she turns 18. She is then brought back, and held captive by her uncle John and cousin Jack in the basement of the family estate, where she becomes an unwilling sex slave. After 3 long years she is taken from the basement and moved into a suite at the family’s hotel and made to go to work as her Jack's personal assistant at the family’s business. Once out of the basement she runs into her other cousin, Joshua, who she loved a great deal as a small girl.
When she was younger, Isla and Joshua loved each other very much. It was believed by all, that they would someday have a love that would last forever. Joshua doesn't realize she is Isla he is quite drawn to her. As the story unfolds Joshua tries to save Isla and the family business from his uncle John and Jack.
This book is a dark romance, but the details of Isla’s treatment are insinuated and not given in graphic detail. I loved the idea that Joshua and Isla were destined to be together since they were children. That touched the romantic in me.
This book does end as a cliffhanger, but that’s ok. I’m anxiously waiting for the next book to come out.
Elaine May is my Author name. I live in the South West of England with my two beautiful daughters and yummy hubby. I love reading dark and twisted tales that mess with your head. I love to travel and spending time with my family. My dream is for people to like what i've written and hopefully get to go to a book signing event as an author.
