Love You, Truly | Book Review


Blake 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.

A romance that involves a dating show? I'd be all over Susan L. Tuttle’s Love You, Truly even if I hadn't already loved her debut, At First Glance

Harlow Tucker, on the other hand, is not a fan of dating shows—but her beloved sister is. When that sister signs her up for Call for Love, Harlow has no choice but to go. Of course, she has no intention of actually falling in love; she just wants to enjoy a bit of traveling. Yet, Call for Love’s celebrity star Blake Carlton manages to find a way past her defenses anyway.

Their love story is complicated, naturally, by other women competing for Blake’s heart and by Harlow’s faith and wariness to trust. Harlow did become a bit wearying, always saying “no” (just eat the ice cream!) and repeatedly comparing Blake to her cheating ex-boyfriend, but her interactions with Blake challenge her to embrace life differently. And of course, Blake does not remain unchanged through it all, too.

A sweet, fun romance with picturesque locations and great banter, Love You, Truly is a story that romance readers should not miss.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
