Isn’t that supposed to be important to most people? But like I said small portion of the story The second snag I had was in regards to Jessica one of Rory’s friends and Tyler’s relationship in the beginning I won’t elaborate too much but it just grated on me I was uickly emailing Jenny as soon as it came up which was somewhere at the 4% mark and fortunately she assured me this did not have a major impact on the story Thanks Jenny I really love your “hand holding” you should’ve seen our emails about Iced Dani O'Malley #1 I guess at 4% I should’ve been a little patient lol I was really happy to find out at the end of this story there’s a companion novel centering on Rory’s friend Jessica There's no title yet but it's supposed to be out November of this year I was totally happy to get a little glimpse of Rory and Tyler in the future with the excerpt I read In the end True was than just a romance between the “awkward girl” and the “popular hot guy” This was a story about finding a true connection and love in the midst real and messy lives You can read this review and at The Readers Den

Smart doctor smart while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back Oh the angst And such shallow characters This was a meh read for me 15 2 stars There’s a new genre in town and it’s called New Adult Now New Adult is supposed to encompass the coming of age stories stories about college aged kids and the like It’s supposedly for readers who have graduated from the traditional young adult fare and who are looking for a little bit Perhaps they are looking for all those “firsts” when someone goes away to college experiencing freedom for the first timeIt’s been a long time since I was that age and perhaps that’s why this book did not appeal to me However I must say that I enjoyed other books in this genre like Easy Pushing the Limits and Sea of Tranuility So what made me dislike this book? Here it is Exhibit A“Oh My God I sucked in my breath I couldn’t help it My roommates had paid Tyler to have sex with me For whatever creepy misguided reason And he had been willing to take it”Are kids really THAT shallow? A small unscientific poll of a college aged male my son confirmed that yes this could be in the realm of possibility in his group of friends But really? What kind of friends do something like this? Has virginity become a condition that “needs to be taken care of?”Also what is it about tattoos and piercings? Why does the “good” girl always go for the “bad” boy who is inevitably covered in tattoos and piercings? NOTE I am not saying that tattoos and piercings are wrong or bad it’s the stereotype of bad boy covered in tattoos and piercings that I have a problem with You can have clean cut non tattooed non pierced jerks tooLooking through my notes on the book I noticed a lot of “meh” moments punctuated by “meh I don’t get it” and “meh too angsty” I know that a lot of people loved this book I am not one of them Your results may varySo there you have it – True by Erin McCarthy – my recommendation would be to Read With Caution Thank you to NetGalley and Berkley for a review copy of this bookReview posted on Badass Book Reviews
