Book Review – Truth Hurts by Rebecca Reid

Which is more dangerous, a secret or a lie?

Poppy has a secret.

It was a whirlwind romance. And when Drew, caught up in the moment, suggests that he and Poppy don’t tell each other anything about their past lives, that they live only for the here and now, for the future they are building together, Poppy jumps at the chance for a fresh start.

But it doesn’t take long for Poppy to see that this is a two-way deal. Drew is hiding something from her. And Poppy suddenly has no idea who the man she has married really is, what he is hiding from her or what he might be capable of.

Drew says he has nothing to hide. Drew is lying.

I hadn’t heard of this book or author until a couple of weeks ago, but promising secrets, lies and romance I was in!

26 year old nanny, Poppy, finds herself sacked after standing up to her awful employers while accompanying them on holiday to Ibiza. With nowhere to go and no money things are looking grim, until she bumps into rich, charming and handsome Drew Spencer. Despite the age gap, an intense romance quickly starts. Within weeks, Drew proposes and not believing her luck, Poppy accepts. But there’s a condition – neither will ask about the others past…

Seriously, this had all the ingredients of a cracking page turner. It was steamy and intense, the chemistry and tension between Poppy and Drew was electric. I loved the premise – I mean it’s obvious there’s a few big, juicy secrets lurking in both of their pasts, but I couldn’t have guessed what it would be

And there’s also a creepy house – and boy do I love a creepy house! Thursday House sounds spectacular but the eerie vibes were pulsing from the page. Rebecca Reid does an amazing job of bringing it to life with her descriptions … I can still see the hallway in my mind

Truth Hurts was exactly what I wanted it to be. Gripping, twisty and intense – full of dark secrets and deep obsession. This was an excellent read and an author I’ll definitely be looking out for in the future
