Jacob and Isabelle's story, as with the rest of The Truth Series, will bring the feels to the surface. For years secrets and greed have been a constant issues for the Bryant family. With Jacob, those issues continue to become a memory as Jacob and Isabelle face more ghost from the past, in order to have a future together.
With Joshua and Isla we were given anchoring love story.
With Jackson and Kitty we were given an amazing story of lost-love-found.
With Jacob and Isabelle we are given the story of broken kindred spirits that need each other to heal the scars of their past.
Because of certain adult situations I would definitely recommend her books but to 18+up Because she writes such beautiful but deeply emotional books it may cause triggers, they have with me but they were each so equally amazing that I enjoyed them all and couldn't help but buy everyone that comes out!

Jacob, Isabelle and Katie….
This is their story.
Guys again, what can I say other than this. Jacob is utter perfection at the highest level. I was trapped within the story from the prologue, I couldn’t put it down.
Raw, gritty and at times highly confronting.
Heartbreaking, heartwarming and completely moving.
Written with such depth and detail you could every every emotion, every tear, every laugh.
It had everything I could’ve asked for and so much more.
Jacob….It was instant love. I fell completely for this man and his vulnerability and the need to help others even though he was suffering within himself.
Isabelle….A beautiful woman who’s strength shone through with every page turned.
But Katie….That beautiful little girl completely held my heart in her hands.
Put these three beautiful characters together….You have one hell of a read.
Guys please you need to read this. I can’t rate it highly enough. A must read.
Jacob Bryant is a doctor at the hospital. He wants to help people after going through some extremely traumatic events as a child which has left him with nightmares on a regular basis. He has never had a serious relationship before and focuses on his job and his family.
Isabelle is the mother of a 3 year old named Katie and has lived her whole life as a prisoner of Marco along with her mother. She is constantly physically and sexually abused but puts up with it until she realizes that Katie is sick and needs to go to the hospital. Isabelle risks everything to get Katie there but knows it's only a matter of time before Marco finds her.
As Jacob tries to find out what is wrong with Katie, he grows closer to Isabelle and knows that she is hiding all of her own pain. He knows he needs to protect her but what is the risk?
When Isabelle realizes Marco has found her what will she do and as she begins to learn the truth about her past will she let Jacob know the truth?
This was one of my favorite books of the series! Although it's funny as near the end everything just clicked and I was shocked how everything fell into place.
I loved Jacob and knew how important he was to the past story between Joshua and Isla Bryant. He has come a long way but still suffers from his memories of the past. I love how he is able to recognize Isabelle as an innocent victim and knows what it is like to go through something that scars your insides. Jacob knew he had to protect both Katie and Isabelle but he didn't know who was after them or why.
Isabelle was a strong character with what she was willing to do to protect her daughter. She had put up with so much for so long but knew that Katie really needed help. I felt so bad for her when she couldn't provide information on Katie's dad and I can't imagine how that felt. I understood how conflicted she felt when she learned about her past and how everything tied together but I felt so bad that she was taking on so much of the blame/guilt.
Katie was such a great little girl and I loved the honesty that came out of her mouth! She provided some laughter when the reader needed it the most!
I loved at the end when everything just clicked into place for me and seeing how everything was coming into place. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what's next!!
