When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.
Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…
Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost....
When I did a Goodreads review for this title I put down 'Not bad, but it didn't wow me.' Then I sat down tonight to write this review - 3 weeks later - and I hate to admit that I really can't remember anything about it. I checked my notes and discovered I had written that Tyler is a typical example of appearances being deceptive, but I can't remember why, I don't have a clue.
I remember thinking as I was reading that it would be a good title for contemporary fans as a quick summer read, but I absolutely can't remember any details about the story at all. Even the blurb doesn't bring back any specifics. I feel very sad about this, and I did consider fluffing my way through a review, but no. I have to just admit that I read it, enjoyed it a bit at the time, and now I can't remember why.
So I'm really sorry Ms McCarthy, but True just didn't stick with me. If you liked it, let me know, maybe you can jog my memory a bit.
