Review: Love You, Truly by Susan L. Tuttle


Love You, TrulyThis story was great! I was so impressed with the way the author handled the difficult situations that these characters found themselves in. She adeptly placed Harlow into this reality show situation, where she did not want to be, through Harlow’s desire to help her sister in any way she could.

And Blake ended up being such a complicated character. I liked him so much, and was impressed with his growth throughout the story. I was also impressed with the way the author was able to handle the reality that Blake was not a believer, while Harlow was. And although Harlow knew she shouldn’t fall for Blake, it was something she had trouble not doing. The glaring differences between Harlow’s life and Blake’s life, whether because of their beliefs or due to the way they were raised, made for an interesting match. Both Blake and Harlow carried burdens related to guilt that weighed them down and caused problems in their lives. This was something they both had to learn to recognize and let go of.

I felt the heartache on both sides throughout this story, and it was as if I was experiencing the struggles, as well as the happy times, with these two. I had such fun reading this book and enjoyed it from start to finish.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Love You, TrulyBlake Carlton, the camera-shy son of Hollywood’s Darling, dodges the invasive limelight and scripted relationships that so often accompany fame. But when his mother’s popularity declines and she falls into a depression, he offers himself up as the next bachelor on a reality show, hoping to reignite interest in her career while creating a way for them to finally connect.

After her fiancé dumps her for her best friend, aspiring photographer Harlow Tucker is done with romance—until her beloved, disabled sister requests her aid to start a nonprofit. Harlow agrees to do whatever is needed to raise funds, even reluctantly costarring on a dating show with a notorious womanizer who distrusts anyone behind a lens.

As Blake and Harlow navigate the superficiality of a reality show, their preconceived notions of love are challenged. Deciding to trust each other feels like the ultimate risk, but taking that chance could lead to a love truly picture-perfect, worth both of their hearts.
