“Eve Harris has always had a point to prove: where you come from doesn’t matter, it’s what you aim for that counts. She has it all planned; find the perfect teaching job, live with her best friend, Cherry, and never get dragged back into the destructive world of her youth.
The last thing she expects is to bump into millionaire heir Cameron Wallis on her last day on campus. Nor is she expecting to discover that when she gives him a chance to win her over he’s nothing like the playboy the newspapers paint him to be.
Will Eve be able to let go of her judgements and embrace a spontaneous affair with Cam that isn’t part of her plan? Or will the constraints from both their families prevent Cam and Eve from discovering The Truth About Love?
The Truth About Love Vol.I is the first instalment in four interweaving stories about finding love when you least expect it. This novella does end on a cliffhanger which will be continued.”
*This book was sent to me as an Advanced Reader’s Copy from the publisher. It came out on January 24th, 2017. All opinions stated are my own.*
This book was surprising and not surprising at the same time for me.
As someone who is just now getting into the New Adult genre, I had some idea of what to expect going into this book. With the New Adult books that I have read in the past, they were all NA Fantasy and not romance like this book was.
I am glad that I gave this genre a try though.
I could connect a lot with our main character of Eve. She reminded me a lot of myself. She is in college in this book and I’m currently in college myself so I really knew exactly what she was going through in the book. Spending more time on our studies than looking for a romance. Cherry also had some of the same qualities as myself. Trying to find the right guy for our best friend. Knowing exactly what she wants to do in life. Both of these characters were just so relatable.
As far as the romance, I will be completely honest and say that I wasn’t a huge fan of it. I felt a little forced in my opinion. It was a little insta-lovey in my opinion and that is one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to contemporary books like this. Just wasn’t for me.
Getting into the plot, I was just too rushed for me. I think that this all had to do the length of this book. It was very info-dumpy (another one of my pet peeves). I also found the character of Cameron a little creepy. It was almost like he stalking Eve and that made uncomfortable. But I can see exactly where the author is going to take the plot in the next few volumes in this series. The cliff-hanger at the end made me intrigued to know what was going to happen next.
Overall, this book was just okay in my opinion. It does make me want to read more of this genre in the future. It was a good start for me to get into the genre. I will continue on with the series due to the fact that it ended on a cliff-hanger. I’m so interested to see where it goes from here.
