I received an eARC from Intermix via Netgalley. Thank you.
Sometimes, I think, it’s too much to ask for a new adult book with ‘outside the box’ story. They are all the same, two problematic young adults and their equally problematic life. One saves the other and vice versa. Or some cases, the other one saves the other half. And of course the palpable attraction towards each other and their bordering erotic romantic scenes. While they are entertaining you’ll get sick of it if you’re chewing the same food. But I’m optimistic that’s why I still keep on reading these books, maybe someone will punch the wall of mediocrity.
Now, Truth suffers the same treatment. There’s this girl wanted to explore things, and her friends decided to hook her up with a guy they paid so he can get rid of her ‘virgin’ status. But the plan backfire (in a good way I think,) because they fell for each other. It must be romantic for someone but in this case, I was unsurprisingly displeased.
Other times, I take full responsibility, sometimes I’m in a funked mood and it affects my reading but it definitely the book this time. It’s not horrible but it came too predictable. I saw things coming from miles away. I kind of guessed what would happen and lo and behold I got them accurately. That’s annoying for me, I mean I don’t want to read something I have read before, if that’s the case I should’ve just re-read a book with the same theme that I actually liked. This will saved me from these intolerable infuriating feelings. But one of my—I don’t know if my good one or not—trait is being hopeful. I hoped…until the last page.
Now, this book is not all that bad there’s this redeeming points that I think people will like. I, on the hand, am not part of the group. No matter how much I think through it the negatives outweigh the miniscule positives this book possesses. Yep, there are good things this book has that will entertain readers. Yep, entertained for a while and then we completely forgot who and what the book represents.
