Truth, I hide.
Truth, you seek.
Truth, I confess.
Truth, you leave.
She never meant to let anyone in, least of all him. Now that she has, she is forever changed. Capri sees her life one way. Dull. She’s learned to dim and fade into the world around her. Until the day she agreed to more time with him.
Shrouding himself in a carefully constructed shield of humor and vibrant charm, Wes has effectively kept everyone out for most of his life. He’s successfully hidden the truth about who he really is, but then she agreed to more time with him.
Lines become crossed and reconstructed. Secrets are revealed, and infatuation is born. Will their connection be enough to paint themselves new, or will the truths of their lives be too stained to overcome.
Truth, love finds you.
Truth, love leads you.
Truth, love heals you.
Truth, love breaks you.
For college student Kensie, finding love hasn’t been easy. With a father she’s estranged from she finds it difficult to trust men, and with a past she’s ashamed of she is unable to trust herself. Kensie feels irrevocably stagnant with an unending desire to move. That is, until she meets August, and her life is set into motion.
After a tragic accident, August gave up on living. A captive to his guilt, he is unable to move on from his past. Then he finds a reason in Kensie. She awakes every dormant fiber of his being, but will she want him once she discovers he is everything she fears most?
Can Kensie let herself love August, or will the truth destroy her?
I tend to read A LOT of friends to lovers stories, and I’m not sure how I always end up with them, but since I do indeed read a lot of them I am always happy when I read one that engages me. Ms. Rose did a great job writing one of these stories that stuck out for me and I was never bored reading. I actually did laugh quite a bit.
Both main characters had their own set of problems, but I like how they were talked about and didn’t take the main focus away from the book. Again, Ms. Rose did such a great job sticking to her characters and their relationship, not other drama. I am going to first talk about Wes. What’s not to love, he has tattoos, he’s cute and has a great sense of humor! Every girl needs a guy that can make her laugh!! Then there’s Capri, she was equally as great with a bit of sass on top! I like how the two complemented each other and made each other better people!!!
