‘The Truth Will Set You Free.’
What if it doesn’t? What if knowing the truth is worse than the lie and believing what you’ve always been told is the best thing for you?
What would you do if you discovered the lie? Would you question it, even if the answers will turn your world upside down?
I’ve lived my entire life believing one thing, and in a single moment it all changed. The people I trusted most betrayed me and sent me down a path I never expected to take with someone I never knew I needed.
The truth does not always set you free, sometimes it changes you forever.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given this book for an honest review by the author.
To say I am thrilled to be back in the world of this family is to be an understatement. I fell in hardcore love with the parents of the main girl, Riley, in this story. To see her grown up and learning about her past was an exciting prospect. The other main character, Caleb, was the son of another crazy couple’s story. I was super excited to see how he grew up. You want to know their back story, then read the parents’ stories!!
Riley grew up with the best dad every…or did she. She finds something that makes her question if Wes really does love her. She cannot believe she has been lied to her entire life. She demands her friend for life/current possible love interest help her get to the bottom of this new surprise in her life. Her demands lead them on a cross country chase for answers and makes her daydream about possible new outcomes to her life.
Caleb is seriously the sweetest, kindest person in the world. He loves Riley and will do anything for her including following her hairbrained scheme to travel across the USA to find an answer to her question. He is supportive and does everything to make her happy all the while keeping in touch with family back home. He is also worried about her crazy plan but the good boyfriend in him needs to keep her safe.
Riley was not my favorite character. I did not connect with her and felt Caleb deserved better than her a lot of the time in the novel. Caleb was always doing things to make everyone happy and this caused him the one things that made him happy….Riley. I don’t know if the fact I don’t read lot of NA novels is maybe why I didn’t connect with her.
I loved catching up with the families and can’t wait for Easton because he is a little shit started for sure.
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
This series is about the kiddos from Heather’s Broken Series. The series starts with Caleb and Riley. They were friends growing up but not so much now. Riley is trying to get through a breakup and things are just not going her way. She realizes Caleb is working for her dad at the gym and she finds out a family secret all the summer before she leaves for college.
Riley is on a mission to go on a road trip to figure things out for herself after she realizes things she believed were truth are not quite as they seemed. She enlists the help of Caleb to go with her on this summer road trip. Caleb was amazing though out this book he was so patient and put up with a lot from Riley. I’m afraid I may have left her on the side of the road sometimes. Although maybe not I would not want the wrath of Wes after me.
Most of the ride Riley has her rose colored glasses on and starts to dream about what kind of life she could have. Caleb is supportive but tries to keep her grounded. Caleb also keeps in touch with those at home that would be worried when they went missing. He is such a great protector Wes would be proud well maybe not that proud. Riley feels like she has been lied to by everyone and when they return realizes Caleb lied to her also. Now their relationship is on the rocks.
I absolutely loved Caleb but Riley could be a bit much at times. I liked the scenes between Wes and Riley at the gym. I am looking forward to seeing the other kiddos in this series. Feels like I’m going back home for a family reunion.
