Book Description

For the next eleven days all Amelia Adler wants is a nice relaxing vacation on the beach. All she’ll do is drink pineapple margaritas and read sexy steamy romance novels. She doesn’t want to think about the stress of her daily life nor the fact that she doesn’t know what to do with her life.

Craig Patrice just wants to spend his last spring break catching wave after waves during the day in the Pacific Ocean, and relax as much as he can at night. This is his last break before finishing law school and starting at a firm this upcoming summer. He has no desire for a fling or a girlfriend. All he wants is to buckle down and finish this year off right. That is until he gets a glimpse of his vacationing neighbor, and for the life of him, he can’t look away.

Though Craig and Amelia are somewhat reluctant for a relationship, they seem to find comfort in one another and can’t let go of each other. Finding romance on vacation is one thing, but can their relationship withstand the demand of real life and once their past catches up with them will believing in each other’s truth save their future.

Note: Contains adult content. Fourth edition has been re-edited to correct grammatical errors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet love story with a cliffhanger ending June 19, 2013
By GL fan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. It's about Amelia and Craig falling in love during their vacation. Both of the main characters are so interesting with their degree choices, adventure sports, best friends, marksmanship, etc. I also love the fact that Amelia is half Asian, just like little ol' me. The pace of the story is a bit slow and there is an overuse of the word 'baby', along with a few grammatical errors, but you really get to see the main characters fall in live with each other and become a couple. The last chapter is where there is a little suspense with a psycho ex and student. I wish there had been more of the last chapter, but I can wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new author and awesome book! June 14, 2013
By amy j
Format:Kindle Edition
ARC provided by first time author for honest review

Love of Truth is a story following a very independent caring young woman Amelia on her Spring break to a beach house off the coast of Oregon. Amelia is excited to have the peace and quiet to do as she pleases with her side kick Larry! Not only is Amelia independent she is feisty, adventurous, a great cook, and loves to why is she single? She has endured more heartache than most for a lifetime which leads her to being unable to trust therefore she has thrown herself into her studies where she is well protected by her work...until she meets the vacationing neighbors at the beach!

Craig is a hard working, former army special forces sniper, law school student, with a future laid out in front of him. Tired of the typical bimbos and users he pulls himself off the market and sticks with his plans for the future. A prior run in with cray cray also has a little bit to do with his solo path. Craig is eyeing Amelia across the way for the first time as he is explaining why he doesn't need a "relationship" when their eyes meet.

Craig and Amelia notice each other from the start and have more in common than most couples. Craig is not only drawn to her because of this but also adores how Amelia cares about others. There is a draw to each other neither have ever felt before but will Amelia let Craig in? Is Amelia worth it for Craig to "adjust" his future plans?

There are some sexy steamy scenes in this very sweet story which starts off and ends very strong but the middle starts to lag. Transitioning from the vacation to real life was stretched out more than what was needed, in my opinion..but since the characters are so likable the reader is not bored.

4.0 out of 5 stars Starts off slow and ends with a bang July 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After finishing C.T. Oliver's Love of Truth, I believe I stared at my Kindle for a solid ten minutes wondering what the heck just happened. What I thought was a nice sweet romance novel quickly and unexpectedly morphed into a thriller with a teaser ending that promises more excitement in the follow-up sequel. Oliver devotes a good portion of the book developing the romance between protagonists, Amelia and Craig, delving into their backstories so that readers can better understand the two characters. All of the seemingly random tidbits of information piece together to create clues that ultimately lead up to a shocking cliffhanger.
What I like about this book is its relative lack of drama - at least until the last few chapters. Yes, Amelia has certain insecurities, which make her hesitant about opening up to Craig, but for the most part, the mood is laidback and the romance is straightforward. The chemistry between Amelia and Craig is apparent from the start of the book and their transition into a couple is seamless, despite their admitted reluctance to become romantically entangled with another person after previous disastrous relationships. Their romance is a pleasant mix of sweet and (seriously) steamy and I enjoyed getting to know their characters thoroughly.
I have to take a moment to nitpick about a few issues I had with the book. Unless I missed something, the two protagonists' names aren't revealed until chapters four and six, respectively. The alternating perspectives are confusing when the changes aren't noted at the start of the chapter and other minor characters are introduced even before I became familiar with the two narrators.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Debut for a New Author June 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received an ARC from this new author in exchange for an honest review.

I'd give it 4.5 out of 5 stars if that was available, but I felt it was closer to a 5 than a 4.....

Catching some sun, having adventures, cooking good food, lounging with a good book, playing with her sidekick Larry (the dog), and enjoying catching up with friends--that's all Amelia Adler has planned for her beach side vacation. That is until she locks eyes with her gorgeous neighbor Craig Patrice. Love of Truth by CT Oliver follows two people who meet on vacation and have an instant connection, but can that connection last once they get back into the real world?

Amelia has been on her own a long time and has been burned by men in the past, so she is leery of trusting Craig and his compliments. Craig, also has had a bad relationship in the past, but realizes that this connection with Amelia is rare and wants to give the relationship his all. As they spend more and more time together on vacation, Amelia opens up and learns to trust Craig and his compliments. This is where I think Ms. Oliver did a great job, she slowly has Amelia adjusting to the alpha male personality that Craig has, but Amelia still keeps her independent nature. The connection between Amelia and Craig is palpable and oh-so-steamy!

Craig and Amelia aren't alone on this vacation, there is a strong cast of supporting characters that only enhance the story. Sometimes side characters get too much "page time" but with these, there's just enough. My only hope is that eventually some of the supporting characters get their own books!

During the first third of the book there are a few awkward paragraphs and "thoughts" coming from the men, that I really couldn't imagine any man thinking.
