Rory is shy. One night when her friends are hooking up she’s left alone in the room with her crush. She thinks he’s just like her, shy and misunderstood. Except he’s not and he doesn’t understand the word no. When Tyler saves her Rory sees him in a whole new light. Soon Rory begins to run into Tyler everywhere and their relationship begins to change. Too bad the reality of Tyler’s life becomes complicated which may end their relationship.
I liked True a lot. The whole story was totally a wild ride and scary emotions. True definitely drew me in to the characters world and I enjoyed every minute of it. I thought this would be the typical boy from the wrong side of the tracks and the pretty pampered virgin, they fall in love, they don’t understand each other and break up, and then bam they get back together. Now while that is kind of what happened I liked the take on this traditional story.
Tyler is working and going to school so he can support his family. He sells his mothers drugs so she won’t OD and he loves his family to death. He doesn’t think he’s good enough for Rory, after he finds out she’s a virgin and her friends try to make a deal with him to go out with her he’s definitely interested in getting to know her.
Rory is shy and still a virgin. Nobody has ever wanted to go out with her or asked her on a date. Even the day she was attacked the guy didn’t want her. Rory is smart and works hard and tries to have a social life but she expects she’ll die a virgin. When Tyler starts taking interest she thinks it’s a dream come true, that a really attractive guy actually likes her. While they come from different worlds I liked how Rory understood and never judged Tyler and his family. Rory was a cute sweet character and I enjoyed watching her grow as a character from a shy girl to someone who stood up for herself and took what she wanted.
All in all I enjoyed True. I am a sucker for strong girls who become stronger throughout the book. I thought the storyline was exciting and different even though it was bad boy meets good girl. Erin McCarthy did a great job with this story and I am so excited to read more of this series.
I liked Rory pretty much right away. After the death of her mother when she was a child, her life changed. It's just been she and her dad. And well...Rory's been a bit sheltered. She's not naive though. She's never dated and didn't have many friends. When she got to college, she made friends with Kylie and Jessica. They've helped to open her up and encourage her to take some chances and enjoy college life. One of those chances comes in the form of Tyler Mann. He's rough, tough, and hot as hell. Also, the type of guy Rory thought would ever be interested in her. But interested and curious, he is.
Tyler was just plain sexy. He gives off a bad boy vibe and he's earned it. But, Tyler is also just a guy trying to figure life out. His home life has always been bad and he has two younger brothers that rely on him. So, Tyler struggles to make things work. He goes to school and works. When he meets Rory, he's curious to know more about her. Sure, he's seen her around campus and at parties, but she's quiet and honestly intimidates him a little. When he gets his chance, I think he was surprised to find out that he really wanted more of Rory, but he didn't feel like he was worth it. They come from different worlds, but they really did have a great connection. I felt like they really saw each other.
Of course, there was plenty of great sexual tension and steamy moments between Rory and Tyler. I appreciated the build up too. They didn't jump into sex. They really did fall in love. There was more depth to their relationship than just a physical connection. And I was so glad that they didn't give up on each other.
Overall, I really enjoyed getting to know Rory and Tyler. I was pulling for this couple to make it work despite the family pressures they had. And yes, the way they were brought together was less than ideal, but it quickly turned into something more for both of them. I loved watching it develop. The supporting characters were all great too. I loved Tyler's brothers and I liked that Rory became attached to them too. I was excited about picking up SWEET, because I wanted to know more about Tyler's brother Riley. If you're a fan of NA's, pick this one up.

~Because I was standing there, and for the first time, really, I felt like I was of worth, of value, to someone. I was comforting him and that made me feel important. That I had something to give.-Loc 1316
