Broken Truth by Beth Ashworth- Book Tour and Review



Broken Truth Blog Tour

Beth Ashworth




Synopsis:

Life for Charlotte (Charlie) Harris couldn’t be any better at this moment in time. She has her dream job, she has the extremely wealthy knight in shining armour and she has the best friends a girl could ever ask for. On paper, the beautiful world unfolding at her feet almost appears too good to be true for a working class girl from Manchester right?


But what happens when you gloss over the statistics and realise that the happy bubble you have been living in for the past fifteen months has all been a twisted, torturous path of lies? What if you realised that the person you loved wasn’t who they claimed to be any longer? 

With the once sacred and happy memories now turned into hatred and despair, Charlie must now follow her instincts to either forget her past and move on or force the hand that holds the cards to her life to reshuffle the deck before it leads onto the twisted future that lies in store. 

What will she choose? 

Can she forgive and forget for the only man her heart has ever loved?

(Please note that this book contains strong language and graphic scenes of a sexual nature which are intended for a more mature audience.)


My Review:
Broken TruthBroken Truth by Beth Ashworth
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Charlotte (Charlie) is dating Callum, a man she is desperately in love with and who, when he is around, claims to be very much in love with her. The problem is that he is a high-powered business man, and she only gets to see him on the weekends. He works out of his city office during the week and then they spend most of the weekend having hot sweaty sex.

Charlie has gotten to a point in her life where she is working towards a career she loves, and is dating the man of her dreams. Except she finds herself feeling lonely and having a hard time living in a relationship that only provides her with companionship two days a week, and even then Callum has been getting called away to do work during their very limited time together. She starts to struggle with the idea that she doesn't want to live without Callum, but the relationship he can offer her is leaving her miserable lately.

It was hard to watch Charlie know that something was really wrong while not even wanting to really think about it too hard for fear of what that could mean. I think most of us probably sniffed out what the deal was on some level, but I think the direction the story took after the turning point was not totally expected. It was nice seeing Charlie's friends support her so strongly, but sometimes I felt like they were a little over-the-top and definitely not always demonstrating good judgement. The chemistry between Charlie and Callum was definitely intense, but I wish we could have gotten a little deeper look at some of the other aspects of their relationship. I was satisfied by the ending, and overall this book kept me engaged from beginning to end.

Excerpt:

“I know you’re watching me, Baby.” The groggy sound of his voice startled her somewhat.
Composing herself, Charlie smiled. “No, I’m not.”

He grinned sleepily before brilliant blue eyes opened and met her stare. “I think you are,” he murmured.
Her heart began to flutter repeatedly as their eyes continued to stare at one another. It was always like this between them, this playful yet sizzling chemistry that Charlie hoped they would never lose.  “So what are you going to do about it then?” she challenged with a smirk.

Raising his eyebrows slightly, he gave her a look that practically melted her insides to a puddle of goo. Licking her lips seductively, Charlie continued tracing her fingers across his stomach, enjoying the feel of his skin blazing beneath her touch.
“Are you teasing me, Baby?” he asked with a hint of amusement. Lifting both of his arms to rest behind his head, Charlie watched as he tensed the muscles in his abdomen, defining the already ridged muscles further.

She knew he was playing dirty, but she also knew that she could play dirtier. It was definitely time for her to up her game she decided as she removed her hand from his body and placed it on her left thigh. Very gently, she ran her fingertips from the top of her leg to the bottom. His eyes widened as he watched her fingers pursue an unrelenting path over her soft skin until she stopped at the juncture of her thighs.
