A smart and sexy romance about a grumpy single dad on a mission of revenge, and the girl he can’t leave behind by USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise.
I blame the alcohol.
I lost my restaurant business, was forced to sell my dad’s cherished 1967 Chevy Impala, and I got a little drunk.
Now I’m waking up with the hottest, angriest guy I’ve ever seen, speeding down the highway like a bat out of hell.
Ice-blue eyes hit mine with stomach-clenching force…
And he swerves onto the shoulder, ready to kick me out.
Needless to say, our romance doesn’t start out sweet.
Two years ago, I hugged my little boy goodbye and told him I’d be right back.
Next thing I knew, I was arrested and sent to prison for a crime I didn’t commit.
Until they let me out early…
Now I’m headed home to confront the man who put me away.
A lie put me behind bars, and I’m ready to find the truth.
I don’t have time for a sexy girl with pale blonde hair and bright blue eyes stowed away on the backseat of my new car.
My mission is to get my son back and clear my name.
Love is not on the agenda.
It never is, though, is it?
(THIS MUCH IS TRUE is a single-dad, opposites attract, stand-alone romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)
Wow, December keeps hitting us with so my good books. I’m feeling so overwhelmed and I haven’t been able to post reviews of all the books I’ve read already. Did every author decide to release something Good this December?
Anyway enough of my ranting, I enjoyed reading This much is true By Tia Louise. It was a very refreshing read. There three important things that made me like this book, the opposite attract trope, the pandemic backdrop and most importantly the fact that our hero is a single dad. I’m a complete sucker for single dad romance. I also liked the added mystery and revenge trope it made more interesting and intriguing.
Our hero JR is an ex-convict but he didn’t commit the crime he was convicted for. So for the most part of the book he was trying to find out who framed him so he can clear his name and be with his son. As soon as he is out he decides to go on a road trip with his brother back to their hometown to see his son and find out what happened. But fate was at work the whole time because the car he bought belonged to our hero Hope and she decided to take a nap in the backseat ( she was drunk by the way) so when JR drives the car she’s still in the backseat then she ends up going on the road trip with them.
That road trip was so much fun to read about. At first Jr tries to ignore their connection but he fails woefully. He also tried so hard to push hope away a couple of times but in the end they end up together.
I just adored hope, she was quirky, determined and so adorable. She was also down on her luck because the pandemic made her lose her restaurant. That part of the book made me so sad because I know it’s a reality for some people. I’m sure a lot of people lost their business or will lose their business because of the lockdown.
This book was a really nice read and I’m sure you all will enjoy reading it.
