REVIEW

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and I couldn’t have been more pleased with this debut novel from Kimberly Rose.

“TRUTH” is something that far to many people skirt around………….

What if you came face to face with your truth when you had given up hope on ever finding it? Then what if your truth was closer than you had ever thought possible? Would you be willing to risk it all to finally feel the freedom that comes from finding your truth?

Kensie is an amazing female character that has faced a childhood that left her wondering what she did wrong. When she needed the support of her father the most, it was nowhere to be found and left her with huge trust issues. When she thought she found love, her boyfriend left her doubting her worth. When she found escape in meaningless encounters, she was left feeling like an empty shell. Somewhere along this road it became clear that she needed to remove all of these extremes and focus on herself. This since action caused a chain reaction that left her floating through life versus actually living it. The part that she never expected was to find her “TRUTH” in a mate that for unknown reasons to her had been forced to live the same shell of a existence.

We met August on a day that signified a huge change in his life and what better way to change than to met his “TRUTH”. Kensie is looking to throw fire to the wind and get a tattoo that will cause a reaction out of her father. Both characters are floored by their intense connection, but so afraid to do anything more than just daydream.

My August [chocolate brown eyes] and all…………….

TRUTH has a funny way of bringing things to the surface and these two characters find out they can’t escape one another without giving things a chance.

They both have so many reasons to run from one another, but they also have this undeniable connection that you feel from the moment she hears his voice. I would say it was all over the minute she looked into his eyes!! The package didn’t end on the outside and the things that he said left me speechless. It was as if they both became their destiny when the found their missing piece in each other.

I will not say their journey was without bumps along the way, but what was really amazing was how well they both rose to the occasion facing their own fear for the benefit of the other.

Favorite Quotes:

“It’s only going to be me, right?” “It’s only ever been you. I just didn’t know until I met you.”

“There was a beautiful dandelion swaying in the breeze on a lonely hill. One day, the wind came to the dandelion and told her he was going to carry her away from her lonely hill. The dandelion was scared at first, but the wind told her that he would take care of her and that she could trust him, that he would show her things she never thought possible.”

“When I met you, I felt alone and all out of hope, but you made me want to live again. You came and moved me in a new direction toward a life I’ve always wanted, but never thought I deserved.”
