she do Tell a lie And that lie just keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger And do you know what happens to liars THEY GET CAUGHT So now you know the gist, right But there is so much to this tale Tatum is as awkward as can be, which makes for some laughs This girl says and does the wrong things at the very worst of times, but her heart is solid And the hero Jason reformed manwhore y all So my thoughts easy and enjoyable read likeable characters slow build romance, although the fling part started quickly low on angst the conflict was pretty tame no muss, no fuss I found it hard to buy into these characters actually loving each other because they shared virtually no screen time as a couple beyond their fling I barely felt the chemistry, which was necessary because fling Is it bad that I was interested in Jason s cousin, Kelsey, than the main characters themselves I wonder if she ll get a book She definitely drove this story, even if she was only supposed to be a sounding board and advice giver.Like I said, it was an easy read and I liked it Between Tatum s antics and Jason turning out to be a really great guy, this story took on a life of its own I recommend it to anyone looking for a book that will leave them with warm fuzzies.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr Pinterest flag 14 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 04, 2019 Jan rated it really liked it We

break up Both Tatum and Jason are in the same circles, Tatum is the best friend of Jason s cousin Kelsey and already a part of the family With a past reputation of being a playboy Tatum and Jason have been given orders by Kelsey to say away from each other Tatum is also getting over a break up I loved this slow burn romance, it was hot, funny, I loved the embarrassing moments and I also loved every

jerk and his nonsense comes in many shapes The relationship with Jason slowly evolves and they grow closer Tatum has a horrible habit of providing details that are relevant to their friendship, as far as her work situation goes Tatum really fizzles for a while and at one point I could have drop kicked her right out of the room Could she be that clueless Obviously she was.Jason evened out the story for me, and made up for Tatum s lack There are a lot of ups and downs and normal relationship bumps in the story and a couple not so normal but still the overall book was a good one Medium angst which

can say that I loved the sound of the synopsis and it was definitely something I would read, but after reading, this book actually fell a bit flat for me I just felt like nothing big happened to really fuel the plot and make it interesting and this meant that it stayed on one level It did start to have a few bigger scenes, but these didn t come in until nearer the end Overall, I did like the plot and the writing was brilliant I loved the romance aspect as well and it allowed a few seriously hot scenes between the two main characters, which were pretty hot The characters were also amazing and did make the book better Tatum was the main female character, and in this book she was dealing with a messy breakup and wasn t really sure what to do next She also had to work with her ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend, which must have been hard for Tatum I did feel for Tatum in this book because she did tell a little white lie, which then turned into a big lie and she was then stuck This did have a big impact on Tatum and she was sorry for what she did Jason was the main male character and love interest of Tatum Jason had also been through a messy breakup in this book and he was now in a new place with a new job and life I loved Jason in this book He was funny at times and I loved the way he was with Tatum He made her squirm, which was funny, and it was easy to see how much he cared about her Jason also felt betrayed by Tatum when it came to her secret, which I could understand, but he did learn a lot about himself in this book I loved that this book was written from both characters point of views I was hoping that it was going to be before I started reading, but then I wasn t sure after I read the synopsis I m really happy that it was written from both Tatum and Jason s point of views because it allowed for things to happen in the plot and it helped me connect and understand both characters I can also completely understand why this book is a standalone I would love to read on Tatum and Jason, but everything was wrapped up and all the questions raised were answered The ending was also left at the perfect place for Tatum and Jason and summed up their relationship I now can t wait to check out this author s other books and give them a read She s released quite a few books and they all sound like my kind of read, so I can t wait to check them out soon I also love the cover for this book a lot It matches the feel of the book and it would definitely draw me to the book if I didn t already know the author s name The cover image also suits the relationship between Tatum and Jason Big thank you to Leddy, Montlake Romance and Netgalley for an ARC of The Half Truth flag 1 likeLike see review Jan 28, 2019 Up All Night With Books rated it liked

perfect in that role She was the supportive best friend that Tatum needed and the cousin to put Jason straight There was also terrific support and teasing that only a family can get away with There

it This book is one I liked but did not love I enjoyed the interactions between Tatum and Jason but I think there was just too much going on around them, most of it pretty immature, which took away

fess up but rather than illustrate how desperate and vulnerable Tatum felt to keep spinning lie after lie, it came across as selfish and childish Not to mention manipulative and just obnoxious This is

    1. 4 stars.Not technically a rom com but there were some seriously funny moments in this I laughed several times, shoulder shakes and all.I also enjoyed this book immensely The story was pretty interesting but it finished in second place to the characters IMO It was good but they were better Tatum was a total goofball hence all the laughs She really does have good intentions but somehow she always seems to say or do the wrong thing and then everything just seems to snowball from there.Loved 4 stars [...]

    4. Thank you NetGalley for the ARC This was my first book by Leddy Harper, and I really enjoyed her writing style, the story was different than other fake relationship plots and I really liked that in the book Nothing happened as I expected Jason was my favorite character, and his family too They were all too funny Tatum was a good character, but a lot of her lies could have been avoided, and some parts just irritated me But the ending was cute If you like the no strings attached relations Thank yo [...]


    5. I enjoyed this oh Tatum what a web she weaved One little white lie and it gathered speed and grew legs Loved Jason he took a while to realise what he had and what he wanted but got there in the end There was humour, some angst and family drama.


    6. Thanks Netgalley I ve read this author before and her stuff is quite emotional omg that my biggest mistake was too much for me So I guess I wanted to connect with this one too But it didn t happen I ended up skipping thru some parts Both MC didn t do it for me.


    7. I love Leddy Harper, period, end of discussion I thought this book was a little different that her norm, I still loved it This is a character driven story that had me totally in love with Jason and wanting to bop Tatum right on the head a couple times Tatum is quirky as all get out and Jason was just the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to men in a story He wasn t too good to be true, he was real.Which made me love him all the Tatum is a chef and her fianc owns the restaura I love Le [...]
