“Clever and memorable… A fantastic first novel.”
– review ★★★★★

“This book becomes increasingly moreish, I warn you! Lawless has skillfully sowed the seeds of a gripping, highly readable plot; combine that with graceful, lucid prose and unexpected bursts of wry humour and you have one highly impressive debut novel.”
– Goodreads review ★★★★☆

“Little White Lies is beautifully written with a wonderfully evocative setting… a sexual minefield… All in all, an absorbing read.”
Sharon Sant, author of The Sky Song Trilogy and more ★★★★☆

“Wowwwww, this is long! But I loved it! I picked it up because it sounded like a NA book with a totally unique premise and it was! I loved the characters…  Also, loved the British words/humor/colloquies. Anyway, this story has happy moments and sad moments and very tense moments as you just sit there waiting for the train wreck to stop. But you can’t look away! So good!”
Goodreads review ★★★★☆

“I loved this book, finding it extremely gripping right from the start – I was desperate to find out how the situation ended up… The writing style is fantastic; compulsive and with lots of very pretty well-written phrases.” review ★★★★★

“This is a great read featuring an ensemble cast of believable and (I found) recognisable characters. A particular highlight is the author’s accurate references to student escapades – something many people will be able to relate to whilst finding themselves breathing a happy and nostalgic sigh. The writing is fantastic and often genuinely funny – definitely worth a look!”
– Jack Croxall, author of Tethers ★★★★★

“Loved this book! … Little White Lies is a wonderful novel about the joy of friendship and the overwhelming sadness when that long friendship is destroyed… When a writer can make you feel sorry for the antagaonist in the novel, he or she has great talent.” review ★★★★★

“This book gave me three very late nights as I just couldn’t stop reading it! … It’s written with such uncomplicated grace… The style, to me, also feels like you’re snooping in someone’s journal or a fly on the wall, so if like me you’re a nosy parker, it’ll pull you right in. It’s gripping, and never dull… The ending was one of the more perfect endings I’ve ever read.”
– review ★★★★☆

“A cleverly designed dual-year timeline structure… Far more than just a romance story and indeed more than the ‘slice of life’ story it purports to be, [Little White Lies] will strike a chord with anyone who lived through the ‘Noughties’ and bore anything to its ideals and experiences. Sparse, elegant prose and beautiful imagery capture the poignant highs and lows of the ‘best years of your life’, allowing the characters to keep secrets from the reader without alienating them. Lawless has a real knack for empathy.”
– Lily Fox, author of The Secrets of Science ★★★★★

“It was so much more than a love story though, more of a life story.”
– Goodreads review ★★★☆☆

“I was totally hooked…  I loved the 2nd and 3rd sections and really didn’t want this book to end.”
Bec’s Book Blog ★★★★★

“What I love most about this book is the reality of it… This book was packed with unique characters and lots of drama! Besides the content it was the authors enchanting prose that kept me hooked. It was so well written. From the first page I knew it was going to flow well. Definitely a great début.”
Book Nerds Anonymous ★★★★☆

“A great read without the usual predictability often found in female fiction. The sort of book you won’t want to put down!”
– review ★★★★★

“I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue… Great job, Ms. Lawless, and I look forward to reading your future books!”
Nevaeh’s New Adult Book Blog

“Brilliant insight into relationships of 20-somethings, it is nice to read a book about characters I can relate to, rather than the usual teen/30something chick-lit… Highly recommended!” review ★★★★★

“Intriguing! … I felt a connection with this book.”
– Tiffany Talks Books ★★★★☆

“Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. I laughed, I cried. The characters are believable, and whether you have been to university or not, you’ll empathise with the ups and downs, and the dramas and the joy in their 7 lives.” review ★★★★★

“This book is fun and simply unputtable down! Until right to the last page I had no idea how it will turn out… You are in for a treat!” review ★★★★★

“The core characters are believable with a clear difference in both the style of writing and the characterisation between their student and adult selves. Lawless… weave[s] a rich tapestry of events with detailed description of the world her characters inhabit. The story is fleshed out nicely with a couple of peripheral characters who are surprising in their originality and provide a bit of comic relief at times from the intense drama of the main characters.” review ★★★★★

“WOW! What a wonderful debut! I truly loved this story.”
Goodreads review ★★★★★

“I will certainly be recommending this book to friends… I was drawn into this story and wish I had taken longer to read it and savour the details, instead I rushed through it desperate to find out what happens.”
Goodreads review ★★★★★

“I thought it was wonderful… This book is not only about the happiness and sadness of friendship, but it is a wonderful character study of each person. I felt like I knew each person in the book… These are characters the reader will remember for a long time!”
