One Twisted Lie (One Lie Book 3) by Addison Beck

Two people raised to hate each other are thrown together through mutual friends. One Twisted Lie forced them to become friends and change everything they have ever known.

From the blurb:

Someone needs to remind me I can’t sleep with my mortal enemy.

Ever since I was little, Carter Everett has been public enemy number one, and it’s not hard to see why.
His parents own the only competing tech company that even stands a chance of threatening the legacy my family has built. And beyond that, everything about him irritates me, from his stupid thick glasses to his snotty attitude. Sometimes, I swear I could just strangle—

Yeah, I hate the guy.

So, when a hate-fueled passionate kiss occurs between us, I’m more than shocked. I’m prepared to erase it from my mind and my tongue, no matter what the cost.

What should have been a one-off kiss leads to more when my father asks me to get close to Carter for reasons he refuses to tell me.

Everything is going according to plan until I start to realize that maybe Carter isn’t that bad. His stupid thick glasses are kind of hot, he’s highly intelligent, he’s—

Crap, I’m screwed, aren’t I?

One Twisted Lie is a fast-paced, steamy, enemies-to-lovers romance with a little bit of angst, a lot of vulnerability, some prying friends, and a HEA that’ll melt your heart.

Molly's Review:

No words can describe how moving and powerful a story Addison Beck has weaved in this story of two men raised to hate each other, yet despite that, they are the perfect match. We've seen Oz and Carter in previous installments, and I was curious if it was just tension or something more. It turns out to be so much more. 

Out of a lie, they drop the hate and become close. Thanks to that lie, they see each other for who they really are, the good, the bad, and the ugly. 

This is a true emotional rollercoaster in the best way possible and shows us despite being brought up one way, you can rise above and be a better person. 

The friendships this group builds throughout their college years are ones that will make them strive to be better in the future.  

If you're on the fence about this book, please give it a go and see how brilliantly this tale is weaved by this author.
