Truth Be Told by Marie James
Lies ruin lives.
Ignacio Torres, the translator for Blackbridge Security, has told his fair share and then some.
He lied more than once to Tinley Holland when they were teens.
Told her he didn’t love her.
Told her he could live without her.
Told her what they shared didn’t mean a thing.
He’s lived with those lies, lived with the loss of her for over a decade.
What he didn’t expect was going home to help with a family matter only to discover Tinley has told the biggest lie of all.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
The team at Blackbridge Security is back and this time it is Ignacio in the hot seat! While Truth Be Told wasn't suspenseful like I expect from Marie James, it did pack quite an emotional punch. The opening alone was a dagger into my chest.
I admired Tinley. For her tender heart. For all she had endured. All she sacrificed and still went without to try and make a better life. And while she never got over the pain in her heart over what went down with Ignacio all those years ago, when she sees him again she was torn between guilt, anger and longing.
It was all Ignacio could do to try and break down her walls while not letting his own frustrations get the better of him. The one bright spot, the connection he was forming with Alex. It was also the root for all the things he tried to put into place to make up for all the hurt Tinley had gone through.
Oh man- my heart ached waiting for Tinley and Ignacio to get on the same page. The longing. The hurt. The anticipation. All of it coupled together with this underlying promise of more made Ignacio and Tinley's emotional second-chance the kind of read that I didn't want to put down.
About the Author
Let's see...where to begin...
I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.
I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)
We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.
I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.
If I'm not writing; I'm reading.
My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)
I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
