Book Review: First Lie Wins by Ashley Elston

February’s selection for my Book B*tches is First Lie Wins by Ashley Elston. This book is all over Instagram (it’s a Reese book club novel) and I was couldn’t wait to dive in to see if the hype is real. Here’s a summary on Amazon: Evie Porter has everything a nice, Southern girl could want: […]
