PDF KINDLE Forsaking Truth

Forsaking TruthTwo of my favorite themes friends to lovers and straight to gay Luke is a McCullough but he was also the shining star until his nee went out with all his dreams Now back home he is bitter and resentful and is taking it out on the McCulloughs It was easier to lash out that accept defeat Luke s cousin comes home from college with a best friend named tristan who also will best friend named Tristan who also will the new employee to the logging company Lydia Michaels YOU DID ITTristan and Luke I ve been waiting for their story ever since I read my first McCullough Mountain book I m speechless right now It was everything I wanted to read and I had my concerns I ll admit as I wasn t sure if Lydia could write an MM romance like I was hoping my expectations were extremely high I m ashamed I had doubts these are Lydia s McCullough men and she did right by them I feel that it s so much than just an MM romance So much Thank you thank you thank you What an amazing giftPS my awesome friend JLC has posted one of the best reviews I ve ever readGO READ ITPersonally I m going to re read the series while I wait for the next book I m hoping I ll get to now Sheilagh better and maybe I ll change how I feel about herI gave Luke the benefit of the doubt through this book series I guess because I felt his shame for me it was so real I could almost taste it He hated who he was and that he loved a man That this series evokes such passionate opinions in my opinion shows what a truly gifted story teller Lydia Michaels is I m so thankful that JLC introduced us me and my reading friends to LM books JLC should get a commission LOLOLOL Although this is book 5 in the McCullough Mountain series Forsaking Truth can be read as a stand alone without any confusion That said as someone who has read it as a stand alone I plan to add the previous books in the series to my reading list as the McCulloughs are a rather entertaining and delightful family and I would like to read each of the siblings story In this installment in the series we are treated to Luke s story and his I had my doubts going treated to Luke s story and his I had my doubts going this book Both Luke and Tristan had aggravated me in previous books Luke s interaction or lack of with his family made me angry and Tristan s mixed signals where Sheilagh was concerned had me seething But I should have nown Lydia Michaels would have me loving these men by the time their story ended She s done that to me before Always managing to pull me in giving me a closer look at characters and leaving them completely redeemed in my eyes She is a master We ve been given glimpses of Luke and Tristan s story throughout the series I loved that this story went back to the beginning of their relationship rather than just picking up where the last book left off For one thing I loved that return to the early years and being reminded of each of the siblings stories I also loved that in going back to the beginning I really understood Lu The first 90% of the book was spent going over the past 7 years repeating what we ve already come to now from previous books in the series Because of that I was never able to fully connect with the character s story and actually believe their love was true When we finally get to the last 10% and learn what happened after the event s that took place in the previous book Faking It the story is rushed through until the end 2 12 star read for me. When he can’t get Tristan out of his head he doubles his efforts to fight the inevitable Stolen glances lead to heated encounters followed by punishing regret but Luke’s inability to face the truth of who he really is may cost him the only happiness he’s ever no. .
