No More Lies, Alec Brock by Larissa Lopes
Available Tomorrow (July 14, 2020)
“Linda González finally has what she came to Los Angeles for: Alec Brock’s heart. But being the girlfriend of a famous pop star is not always easy. Especially when she’s being watched by someone other than his fans.
The only thing Linda knows about the impostor is that he played with her heart for over a year, and now he’s threatening to hurt her. Always one step ahead of the police, he seems to be nearer than she expected. Without knowing what he looks like, Linda can’t trust anyone.
Not even Alec.
When Linda uncovers a shocking secret Alec kept from her, she realizes everybody lies. If she wants to get to the bottom of this mess, she’d better start listening to her own heart instead of other opinions.
Is searching for the truth worth risking her relationship? Or is she afraid to face the impostor she might still be in love with now that she’s finally dating the guy he was supposed to be?”

This is the second book following Linda and Alec in their unique love story! Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to read the first book All My Love, Alec Brock and feel in love with the premise of the story right away, so naturally I jumped on the chance to read the next book in their journey.
“Dreams do come true.
I mean, they may not happen exactly the way you expect, but I guess that’s for the best. We don’t always know what’s food for us, but life does.”
No More Lies picks up right after the events of All My Love and delves into both Linda and Alec’s backstory more in depth and helps explains their feelings and how they handle the situation.
Life seems to be well with the couple given the circumstances, but like many things, it doesn’t last long because fans are jealous of Linda causing her insecurities to skyrocket and Linda is starting to feel like the Impostor Alec is back despite everyone’s reassurance. But could secretes cause Linda to spiral down the dark hole that was created by the imposter and is Alec and Linda’s relationship strong enough to handle it?
In this book, we really see the strength that Linda has and her ability to forgive those who have hurt those she loves. She’s been through so much over the past couple of years and continues to face new challenges as Alec’s girlfriend, yet she somehow finds it in her heart to let go of the anger when other’s can’t and even tries to help those who hurt her.
“I couldn’t tell when it happened or how it happened. But I was feeling stronger; I could see the light. And it wasn’t Alec’s this time, it was actually mine.”
There’s also a lot more moments showing how wonderful Alec (and his family) is. Everyone in the Brock family has been through so much from the beginning of the twin’s lives that has shaped this family who cares for each other through trying to out surprise each other, live on faith, and protect themselves from the life of being in the public eye. We get to see what happens in the household when the door is closed and those that they family call their friends and family. They care for Linda so deeply because she brings out the best of Alec and helps him when life seems to fall on his shoulders all at once.
Linda and Alec’s newly build relationship is put through the test several times throughout the book that make them realize how special they are to each other but also how much they have to lose if they can’t work through these things.
In this stunning second book, there is so much romance and drama that will have you hanging on to every word. And, there’s discovery after discovery that will have you guessing who was on the other side of the screen in the beginning (because I didn’t guess it until it was revealed).
