    This author’s writing style simply works for me. Whether it’s a holiday short or a full-length novel, I always fall for the characters and story. I really enjoyed Hard Truths, especially because it wasn’t what I’d expected when I first picked it up…it was better. The writing is solid with great dialogue, including a good dose of witty, sarcastic humor that left me chuckling regularly. The author’s ability to weave levity throughout kept things lighter even during the more serious scenes and really made the personalities of the characters vibrant and multi-dimensional. Hard Truths starts off with an interesting situation when Isaac is hit on by his sister’s new boyfriend at a family holiday gathering. I have to say this may be one of my favorite meet cutes I have ever read. It was different, quirky, and had me smiling over and over again, setting the tone for the bulk of this romance. Isaac and Logan were both well-flushed out, but considering the story is told only from Isaac’s point-of-view, his character development is much more substantial. I found his character really interesting and relatable. His concerns about fitting in, living up to expectations, and staying connected with friends and family all made sense, but the way the author filtered the interactions through those lenses and presented Isaac’s warped view of scenarios in and of itself was eye-opening and made this book especially memorable. As I mentioned earlier, when I began Hard Truths, I thought I was in store for a different sort of story than I got. From the start, the romance was almost cloyingly sweet; and while it’s always nice when there’s a natural, easy chemistry between characters, things went so smoothly for Isaac and Logan, I wondered where the story would lead. Although I knew there had to be more to it, I hadn’t quite expected the stern, introspective, and in many ways heartbreaking turns parts of the story took. That said, the book never lost its humor, charm, or the solid connection between the men, even when they faced adversity, and I loved how the characters developed and grew over the course of the book. I would definitely recommend Hard Truths to anyone who likes sweet romances with a little oomph to them. *eARC received via Netgalley. The author and publisher had no influence over this review*
