The Truth About Him, M. O’Keefe
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Well, I loved book one but that cliffhanger…arghh….I hate those.
Anyway this book picks up straight in to that scene and there’s some real action, danger and complications arising from the events that follow. We get to know more of Dylan and Annie, more of the past events that have made them the reserved, complicated people they are. All the while I was wanting their romance to take a step forward, and each time it did it seemed there were even more barriers to complicate things. We see more of the other characters too who become entwined into the story in ways we never imagined. It’s one of those roller coaster romances where you veer from crisis to sort of settled and then back to crisis again. Annie and Dylan have some scorching, sensual, sex scenes and then just when you think its all going well for them the barriers are up from one or the other of them and its a step back again.
There’s so many surprises here. People from both their pasts come forward, the story gets ever more complicated, and just as I thought they’d finally decided to move forward together at the end of book one, it seems they’ve still so much to overcome both on a personal level and via things outside their control. I loved this, loved the way the story was told in snatches, the way we got to know more of the past, the events that shaped them. I want too to know more of Max now, of the wonderful mystery that is Joan, of what will happen to Tiffany and her little family. Future books I hope 🙂
A word about price – I have noticed recently kindle reads getting more expensive. This one ( on pre-sale) is just over £7 and the first £6.61, but I can see comments that it was over £8 when first released. That leads readers like myself to wait until prices drop, and surely when new books are chasing the bestsellers lists its a backward step? I’ve bought books that have dropped hugely in price just months after release and I now wait until all parts of a duo or trilogy are out before buying, often there’s a bargain priced bundle to be had! Most readers don’t have money to throw around, and high prices can adversely ( IMO) affect book sales. That’s my rant over 😉
Stars: Five – a cracking and satisfying finish
