We played our roles, told each other lies.
But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. We’re face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real.
We still have secrets—but so much is crystal clear:
The thrilling danger.
The raw, naked desire.
The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.
Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he can’t shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now it’s my turn, if only he will let me.
I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
After that massive cliffhanger in the first book, Everything I left Unsaid, I immediately went on to Netgalley to download The Truth About Him. There was so many other loose ends that I NEEDED answers to and thank the lucky stars because I don’t know how I would have went weeks without it!
While both books feature the POV of both Annie and Dylan, I felt like this was more Dylan’s story. There were many questions left unanswered about his past and why he is so emotionally closed off with everything. I was dying to know more about why he is the way he is and I wanted to know more about his accident and his past to create such “hatred” towards his father.
The Truth About Him started off right where Everything I left Unsaid left off, the alternating first person POV switches to Dylan. I appreciated this in a sense but I did miss Annie. Not to say that we don’t get many scenes from Annie’s POV because we do.
This romance has all the FEELS. I love that while knowing and loving each other helps them heal, it’s not what MAKES them heal. In a way, I didn’t feel the dark tone as much as I did with Everything I Left Unsaid, but it’s still dark. Watching these two overcome many obstacles to heal was heart warming. Dylan’s backstory is so heart breaking. I can now understand why he was so closed off and emotionally detached. He was let down so many times by those closest to him.
There were a still a few things left unresolved, though. Could this be because we are getting stories from other characters that will tie in? PLEASE, I sure hope so. Yet at the same, I didn’t feel the need to know how everything wraps up and what the resolution was to different things. Maybe it was intentional to leave us to fill in those blanks with what WE want.
All in all – I loved it. This series is one of my favorites read this year. As I said about the first book, it’s dark, sexy and thrilling! I highly recommend this series!
