TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – LOVE YOU, TRULY by SUSAN L. TUTTLE

 

THE BLURB

Blake Carlton, the camera-shy son of Hollywood’s Darling, dodges the invasive limelight and scripted relationships that so often accompany fame. But when his mother’s popularity declines and she falls into a depression, he offers himself up as the next bachelor on a reality show, hoping to reignite interest in her career while creating a way for them to finally connect.
After her fiancé dumps her for her best friend, aspiring photographer Harlow Tucker is done with romance—until her beloved, disabled sister requests her aid to start a nonprofit. Harlow agrees to do whatever is needed to raise funds, even reluctantly costarring on a dating show with a notorious womanizer who distrusts anyone behind a lens.
As Blake and Harlow navigate the superficiality of a reality show, their preconceived notions of love are challenged. Deciding to trust each other feels like the ultimate risk, but taking that chance could lead to a love truly picture-perfect, worth both of their hearts.

 

THE AUTHOR

 

Susan L. Tuttle was born and raised in the Mitten State where she met and married her best friend. A homeschooling mom of three, somewhere along the way she blinked and those three littles aren’t so little anymore. Now she balances their teenage years with directing the women’s ministry at her church and writing new stories. She fully believes that God is the biggest romancer in the world and that he loves each one of us lavishly even in all our imperfections—a belief tried and tested by her own misses at perfection. Never having met a cookie she didn’t like, most days you’ll find her enjoying one for a treat between chauffeuring her kiddos around, attempting housework, contemplating exercise, or coaxing her current characters to talk.

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW

So many things I loved about this story I hardly know where to begin!!!

Ms. Tuttle takes the reader inside the not-so-real world of reality TV. Blake and Harlow are about as opposite as two people can be. The kind of opposite that gets under the other’s skin.

Both dealing—or not dealing, as the case may be—with deep-seated issues. And in a particular twist for this reader, those particular issues are ones too familiar to this reader. Both feeling unappreciated and the need to prove their worth to those closest to them.

I appreciated the honesty in how Ms. Tuttle portrayed both Blake and Harlow juggling their teeter-tottering emotions against the ever growing mutual attraction. Her writing drew me into the story, brought it alive with each page. I wasn’t just reading characters, I was meeting people, making friends. (and enemies!)

I adore scenes in which a character comes face to face with God, the unasked questions answered, the unheard voice suddenly “heard.” And when [NAME] faced [HIS/HER] encounter, the truth in the moments gave me chills. [HIS/HER] life changed in the depth of [HIS/HER] most private moments, and most familiar and favorite surroundings. Just like God will do with any one of us when we’re seeking—or resisting Him.
