Aurora James and Cameron Miller are both on breaks from the opposite sex. Both are on a hiatus for very different reasons. Their reasons are valid and helping them to become better and stronger people. They are learning to live within their own skins and embrace their happiness. They are both lonely and form a solid friendship that leads them down the same path. A path that is right for them both.
Aurora is a perpetual relationship type of girl. She chooses to men that aren't really relationship material. They need her more than she needs them. They need fixing and she is a fixer. Her career as a youth social worker doesn't help matters. Her friends have challenged her to be relationship free for one year and find herself. After another disastrous relationship she is finally coming to terms with herself. She is learning to live alone outside of a relationship. She is learning she has needs of her own. She is also learning what she wants out of life and that it is okay to be alone.
Cameron Miller is a special ed teacher working with students that have anger issues and cannot function successfully in a large classroom environment. Because his job is specialized and the public school system is struggling with funding, his position is always the first to be dropped. He has had several teaching jobs throughout his career. While struggling to hang onto a job, his fiance cheats on him with his best friend. The betrayal sent him into a tizzy. He started drinking too much and womanizing became a way to exist. His friends finally intervened and challenged him to turn his life around for a year.
Cameron and Aurora have the same mutual friends. Their tightly knit group are the threads that keep them on their goals. Their careers often intersect and they have the same kind of mutual interests. Loneliness is hard at times and being alone is even harder. They decide form a chastity club to help each other out with the loneliness by offering companionship.
Together they form a tight friendship and find they have more in common than their goals, careers, and past disastrous relationships. What they have is what real relationships should be based on. It takes Twelve Truths And A Lie for Cameron and Aurora to finally find the right direction in their lives.
Christina Lee delivered a superb story that rang true in every sense of the word. I highly recommend this book.
Oh what this book did to my heart!
Christina Lee is a new author to me, and after reading the blurb for Twelve Truths and A Lie I jumped at the chance to read and review it. And I am so glad I did! I love a good friends-to-lovers story and this one sounded like it was going to be right up my alley. And it was…but it is so much more than just a story of friends-to-lovers.
Aurora and Cameron are pretty amazing characters. They’ve each gone through some trying times the past year and when they meet neither one is looking for a relationship. And even though there’s an undeniable attraction between them, they settle into a friendship that brings them both some needed comfort. I really loved the slow build with these 2. I loved the fact that Ms. Lee let their relationship progress at such a natural pace- they took the time to really get to know each other, to get to know things beyond the surface. Seeing their friendship grow into a deep and strong love was really quite wonderful.
I think my favorite part of the book, and what really endeared it to me and caused multiple tears, didn’t actually have anything to do with Aurora and Cameron’s personal relationship, it was their professional relationship that pulled me into this story. After reading Ms. Lee’s bio I realized why this had such a profound effect on me- she truly brought to life the struggles and harsh reality of what it’s like to be a teacher and a social worker, to be one of those compassionate people who work with the children that sadly society kind of shoves to the side. It made me so thankful for the real life Auroras and Camerons of the world…people who are out there fighting for these kids on a daily basis. I wish I was that strong of a person.
Twelve Truths and A Lie is such a moving, romantic, heartfelt book that really pulled at my heartstrings. It’s one of those books that kind of sneaks up on you, but once it grabs you it won’t let go. The best word I can think of for Cameron and Aurora’s love story is hopeful…it left me with such a feeling of hope, it wrapped around me like a warm blanket.
