Review: "The Truth About Us" by TJ Hannah

TTAU Cover
Twenty-one-year-old Sophia Ross has lived under the pressure of her parents expectations since the tragic accident that shattered their once perfect family. Determined to start over where no one knows her, she answers a housing ad on Craigslist and takes a job at a little bar in a town she has never heard of. All Sophia's looking for is a place to escape, somewhere she can hide behind her lies and keep herself distracted.
She just didn’t expect to be distracted by Corbin Kasey.
Twenty-five-year-old Corbin Kasey is stuck in his hometown, his job, and his life, spending more time covering for his Dad’s problems than trying to fix his own. To take his mind off everything he has the wild Kayla, his stable roommates, and the calmness of swimming in Mills Lake. He always thought it was enough to keep him from drowning in himself, until he meets Sophia.
Neither of them are prepared for their lies to be stripped away by a single kiss. But for Corbin and Sophia, the truth has consequences.

Imagine a grief so life shattering that you can't cope, this is the life of Sophia. She feels pressured to live up to expectations that aren't what she wants in life. So when the going gets tough, Sophia just gets going. She's had enough of her parents, great expectations, and never feeling good enough. She'll make a life for herself elsewhere and open up to the great wide world.
Corbin was left behind. The sting of that and guilt of secrets he's kept has made him stay to keep an eye on his father.  He feels like he's in a dead end life and it doesn't show any sign of improving anytime soon. He'd love to run, but he doesn't believe in not taking care of responsibilities.
It doesn't take long for Sophia to catch Corbin's eye.  When she does the gloves are off, he's determined to get to know this woman. From first sight the attraction was there. They both fight it and make wrong turns, one right after another, before finally giving in to what everyone else already sees. They are perfect for each other. This isn't a story of opposites attract. This is two halves of a dysfunctional whole coming together.  Throughout the story they continually are supporting one another and opening up like they never have before. That's the start of true romance.
I read this book in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. The more you find out about Sophia and Corbin's tragedies the more addictive the story gets. I'm assuming there will be a sequel because there are still some unresolved issues at the end. This doesn't make it any less enjoyable. I actually found the ending uplifting. The flow and events are perfect in this book. The characters a flawed, lovable, comical, and some of the most genuine you'll ever read about.
This book is 5 STARS and more.
A story that reads this well and has so many lovable characters has to be a series.
