Kate is a college student who creates a new fake online profile and calls herself Lexi. Her fake profile her is everything that she isn’t: a flirtatious and fun-loving party girl. Lexi strikes up a relationship with Oliver, the lead singer of a popular British rock band. Lexi and Oliver form a “real” relationship and connect online. Oliver has a tremendous amount of trust issues and emotional baggage. He finally feels like he connected with someone that emotionally gets him. Oliver goes on tour in the US and insists on meeting Lexi IRL (in real life). She never thought they would actually meet when they starting texting. Lexi’s carefully constructed web of lies starts to unravel when Oliver falls for the wrong Lexi. What???? I’m not going to spoil this book for you.
Did you ever watch that Catfish show on MTV? “Catfishing" is when someone creates a fake online profile in order to trick people into a romantic type of relationship. This angsty catfish-style love triangle was unputdownable. I’m not going to lie this story was a little predictable, but I really enjoyed it! When I Lied puts an emotional spin of the dangers of lying on and offline!
