See what our review team is saying about Throne of Lies


Nothing like scandal and reality to sucker punch a budding relationship! Jolie and Tripp are brought together through their fathers, who are business partners. When the two meet again there is an instant connection. First loves are usually unforgettable, but unfortunately for Jolie and Tripp, not in a good way. This was a great way to kick off their story. You can't help but be on Jolie and Tripp's side of this story. Sometimes adults just suck, and that lesson is learned the hard way. I can't wait for Legacy of Lies!!


Whoa! Mind effing blown. This one, a page turner from start to finish. And that ending! The story grips you from the very beginning. Jolie, innocent, sweet, is just captivating. She's easy to love. A bit...gullible maybe but, completely adorable. Tripp/Remington, what a mouthful, was just *sigh* swoon worthy. I devoured this prequel bit by bit. I was easily engrossed in the story, it felt a bit like Romeo and Juliet at one point, and shocked by the ending. I've made a few guesses that I hope will be proved in Legacy of Lies. All in all, Tara Leigh spun one hell of a start to what is turning out to be one incredible duet.


Crazy, Emotional read.

This is a short novella and the beginning of how Tripp and Jolie came to be. We see how they met and why. Both of them from a wealthy class focusing on one an another but while in the background, problems were occurring.. you wanted to know more..I couldn't stop pacing back and forth at work, and the way it ends.. has you like nooo no not yet...but it's not over yet, its only the beginning.


What a great beginning! I love this introduction to Tripp and Jolie. This showed how these two meet and got to know each other. It clues you in to some of the family stress that is happening. From just this short prequel I know I am going to really enjoyed the next book.


Oh Lawd I'm so in love with this little prequel. Tripp and Jolie are captivating. Throne of Lies is enthralling and I was so taken with it. The story, the plot, and how it was written are just amazing. Tripp and Jolie meet due to her having been invited to be a Debutante. Tripp, her fathers business partners son, agrees to be her escort. And when they meet it's an instant connection. Neither wanting to be there, but both fulfilling their expectations. Their love is real, its raw and its deep. So when their worlds shatter, the emotions are felt in the deepest parts of the soul. I cant wait to read the rest of Tripp and Jolie's journey!


WOWZA! What an incredible start to a great love story. Remington "Tripp" Montgomery is young, handsome, rich, and comes from a powerful family. Jolie Chapman is equally young, beautiful, rich and also comes from a powerful family. Sparks fly when they meet and you're quickly taken on an action packed adventure until the explosion at the end. I can't wait to read more!


Class all of their lives. Even though their fathers are business partners, they have only been around each other in passing. All that changed when Tripp has to escort her to the debutante ball. From their meeting at the Bachelor Brunch sparks fly that neither of them can understand.

Just when everything in their privilege life is beyond their fairy tale romance it comes crashing down with lies, and betrayal.

A wonderful beginning to an extraordinary read.


Throne of Lies is the Prequel to Legacy of Lies by Tara Leigh and it was the perfect introduction to Tripp and Jolie. Tripp and Jolie are both from very wealthy families, their fathers are business partners and Tripp is Jolie escort to the Debutante Ball. These two hit it off straight away and the connection along with the chemistry is a page turner. For a short prequel is really does pack a punch and oh wow that ending was so perfect I dove right into Legacy of Lies. It was a gripping intriguing prequel to awaken those taste buds...........


This is my first read by Tara Leigh and it was amazing. Throne of lies is the prequel to Legacy of lies, which introduces us to Jolie and Tripp. I couldn't put this book down, can't wait to see what the next story has for us.


Throne Of Lies was AMAZING!!! It was perfect for Tripp and Jolie’s beginning. I loved it so much. I am so thankful that I had the next book because I would have had a hard time waiting!! That cover🔥🔥🔥🔥


Wow. Just... Wow.

I swear, the feeling of reading this prequel is like the discovery of new love until you’re suddenly punched in the face by reality. Tripp and Jolie were almost too sweet for my liking, almost unrealistic in their instant love for each other. It’s a fast paced romance, a fairytale if you will. So at the risk of spouting POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD, I thought the ending was an amazing stab that just balanced the whole whirlwind (for lack of a better word) romance. It just made me want to dive in to the main story immediately. I’d definitely read this again.


Prepare yourselves peeps to be sucked into Throne of Lies. Tara Leigh starts of this series with a short and quick read that will leave you desperate for more. Thankfully the wait between books is only days apart. Young, elite and living the life straight out of a fairytale. I fell in love with these two very quickly. Tara paints a pretty picture just to pull the rug out and I’m loving everything about it.



I was called a prodigal son. A scion of Midas. I believed it. Why wouldn’t I? Everything my father touched turned to gold. The proof was all around me. Luxury cars. Elite schools. A billion-dollar business. Even my girlfriend, a Park Avenue Princess. I reigned from a throne of lies. My fall from grace . . . wasn’t graceful at all. The Prequel to Legacy of Lies
