3 Heart Review by Ashley
This installment of the Finding the Truth series starts with a bit of an overlap of the first book. Of the pulse pounding events that had me on edge. I enjoyed that A.B. Medley gave me the aftermath of all that went down from another point of view, Tate and Lucy's.
My goodness Lucy. All the suffering and pain and secrets she was living with made my chest ache with the heaviness of it all. That was until she found some solace in Tate. Too bad he was closed off and wouldn't consider all they could've been. Except he couldn't get Lucy out of his head or heart.
It was kinda fun watching the change in them both. Seeing them open up to the possibility of a life with more. A chance at a future they never thought they could have. If only their past would let them go.
While I did find parts to be predictable, Lucy's and Tate's quasi friends to lovers romance was a good balance between steamy and suspenseful. There were moments that made me mad and others that made me melt. And that ending had me ready to see what is next for this group.
