R E V I E W ➠ The Truth About Us by R.C. Stephens



Griffin Campbell was the typical bad boy. My father warned me not to get too close. But he’s handsome as hell with eyes the color of the ocean, and he’s fiercely loyal and loves unconditionally. I couldn’t stay away when he was the only boy to ever claim my heart. I gave him all my firsts . . . and he left me behind.
Ten years later, he’s returned home offering answers as to why he left because he wants me back—only I’m not the broken-hearted teenager he once fell for. His pretty eyes and killer muscles aren’t enough to mend the hurt that rages inside me. 

Jolie Bryant was my best friend’s little sister. She’s sexy as hell, sweet as sin, and very forbidden—my favorite memory and my biggest regret. 
I should stay away. I’m harboring secrets that will shatter her world. 
The thing about secrets is that they always find a way to come out. I just hope that when mine do, she won’t turn away from me . . . 
I want my second chance with the only girl I’ve ever loved, but it seems that fate has other plans.

RELEASE DATE: August 7, 2019

“…Tell me you want me to kiss you. Tell me you want my hands all over you.”

First timer here so NEW to me author and books! The blurb is what originally snagged m attention! I was forewarned by BookBestie Ames that this will be a tearjerker and BOY WAS IT!

This was a very unique story, with lots of twists and turns! Second-Chance Brothers/Best Friend Romance but it’s not really how it seems if that makes sense, hence the twists and turns. I can’t give out too much but will say that I was not ready nor expecting this to be the way it was.

Griffin is the MEGA SWOON WORTHY man, the most loving man who fights to get back what he longs for. Jolie is a woman that went through lot things that happened for her…unpredictable and you’ll see! They both have the most amazing chemistry, you can feel the air sizzling when they are around one another. Lot’s of obsolesces to overcome, lots of secrets to be revealed and most of all PAIN because love without it wouldn’t be worth it.

SO EMOTIONAL! I was a little here and there about the indiscisiveness of Jolie but understanding it kind of comes with what had happened previously. There is a lot of history between hero and heroine here so there are glimpses of PAST along with PRESENT of course. I was not prepared but SO HAPPY i got to read this, one of the beautiful painful ones!
