BOOK REVIEW...True by Erin McCarthy
Rory Macintosh is a smart, socially award college student who like in the synopsis is still a virgin at 20 years old.
Tyler, is the popular playboy who leads a troubled life but is trying to turn himself around. He meets Rory after being hired to take her virginity but finds himself for once wanting to have an actual relationship with someone instead of an one night stand.
I really liked how in depth McCarthy goes in the growth development in both Rory and Tyler's characters. They really are each other's "ying to their yang" or in other words "are each other's missing puzzle pieces"= the perfect couple. <3
I know that Rory was often insecure but I liked how she was very headstrong in her ambitions. Tyler, on the other hand, was confident on the outside but also insecure about himself in the inside. He gave off this tough playboy kind of persona but once he meets Rory she brings out his vulnerability and we see a new side to him as well as Rory.
My only complaint about "True" would be the ending. For me it was okay but I feel as if there could have been more. Then again, it looks like McCarthy is going to make this into a series so perhaps we will see or feel more fulfilled as we read on into the sequels? Only time will tell my lovelies!!
