Review by Wendy ♥ Picture Perfect Lie (Kings of Castle Beach #1) by Marquita Valentine

A Review by Wendy

3.5 Little Lies, Big Truth Stars
* * * 1/2
Spoiler Free
Oh, how a name from birth can blueprint behavior and actions. Knight King was his name and it seems it was also how he was wired... the Knight part. 
Knight sees a young woman with a fussy baby in the airport waiting for a flight just like him. She is beautiful and caring, trying to calm her little one down.... But there is something that looks a miss...

Campbell doesn't know how she is going to get by, but she is determined to... one way or another. She has made some mistakes...but the little sweet one in her arms wasn't one of them. Campbell is stuck at the airport with all of the other passengers due to the ice storm hitting the area. She out of funds, has no family that will accept her and her baby and is feeling all of these emotions. 

She must have had them transmitted to her daughter Hazel, because she just won't stop fussing...until He shows up... Just like a Knight in White Armor...
Knight and Campbell strike up a conversation and the next thing they know, they are sharing their time, meals and hidden secrets with each other. Knight is about to go off on another military mission and the idea of Campbell lost and caring for little Hazel alone out there is too much for him to take. He decides the only way she can handle it all is to take advantage of his not being around his home and go to Castle Beach as his wife. He isn't planning on being back anytime soon, outside of some serious family emergency, so she would be free and clear to raise Hazel safely away from her issues. 
This way Campbell can get on her feet, figure things out like she had hoped... no harm. no foul...

Perfect...After first saying no... Campbell realizes doing as Knight offered is the only way...and his family takes her on board as Knight's wife with his daughter. Knight and Campbell start a long distance friendship via Skype and Facetime...Where they get to know each other little by little...
Campbell and Hazel are safe and sound and both of them figure things are ok as he is away....

But then there is a serious family trauma and Knight must return home... and this is where all the "picture perfect lies" come home to roost...

This is one of those reads that happen fast...has enough sweetness to enjoy and hope for more of the series to come.
