Truth is an amazingly emotional read. Besides spoilers, what is a part of the book that stands out to you as being one of ‘those moments’. Tell us why it grips you, and please give us a little excerpt.
I have lots of favorite scenes in this book. One of them is when Stephan is musing to himself as to why Brianna is so special to him. I’ve had some reviewers over the past two years since the first Finding Anna book came out not understand what Stephan sees in her. They don’t understand how he could possibly love her given how many issues she has.
Sometimes, we tend to forget that with extreme wealth or fame comes a price to be paid. All we see on the outside is that the person can do and have anything they want because money is no object. It’s true that physical needs can be met easily, but what about the emotional ones?
How can one really be sure the person they are in a relationship with loves them for who they are and not what they can give them?
Glancing down at Brianna where she lay with her head on my shoulder, I was reminded again of how different she was from the other women I’d met. It had nothing to do with what she’d been through and everything to do with who she was. I’d thought Tami had been different.
When I’d first met her, she hadn’t acted as if my wealth mattered to her. In the end, however, she began to show her true desires. She wanted to move in with me, have me put a ring on her finger, and a limitless credit card in her hand.
Brianna didn’t care about any of those things. She wasn’t fake. She didn’t pretend. I could be myself with her, even if sometimes I had to keep in mind how fragile she was.
When we talked about my day, she was genuinely interested. If I told her about a family struggling, there were tears in her eyes—her heart went out to them. She cared about people, even though being around them scared her.
Closing my eyes, I relaxed and enjoyed the feel of her in my arms. She accepted me for me, not because of who I was. To me, that was invaluable.
For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring.There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer?As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known.
