Life for Charlotte (Charlie) Harris couldn’t be any better at this moment in time. She has her dream job, she has the extremely wealthy knight in shining armour and she has the best friends a girl could ever ask for. On paper, the beautiful world unfolding at her feet almost appears too good to be true for a working class girl from Manchester right?
But what happens when you gloss over the statistics and realise that the happy bubble you have been living in for the past fifteen months has all been a twisted, torturous path of lies? What if you realised that the person you loved wasn’t who they claimed to be any longer?
With the once sacred and happy memories now turned into hatred and despair, Charlie must now follow her instincts to either forget her past and move on or force the hand that holds the cards to her life to reshuffle the deck before it leads onto the twisted future that lies in store.
What will she choose?
Can she forgive and forget for the only man her heart has ever loved?
Broken Truth by Beth Ashworth
Review by Jennifer Ballam
I loved this, and I mean loved this. The secret that Callum was keeping, for me anyway, was an obvious one but still the way that Charlie was feeling and the progression of the story from that point on was truly amazing!!
The story is told all from Charlie's perspective and therefore the story progression and the revelations all happen at the pace that she discovers things. You can guess aspects of the story although one of the aspects I was not expecting, I would love to tell you who this revelation concerns but that would really ruin part of the story and contain a huge spoiler, all I will say is that character gets mentioned a lot (I'm a tease I know, you'll never guess!!). The heartbreak and love that she feels towards Callum are really well written and the sex scenes between the pair. . . well have a fan at the ready!
The supporting characters in Charlie's friends all play an integral part of the story and I loved them all, especially Xavier! I loved the closing chapters and the epilogue although I have to admit to wishing that the reconciliation had taken part over a few more chapters. After all the heartbreak I couldn't help feeling that Charlie took him back way too easily, I'd have made him sweat!!
This book is well worth a read and I doubt very much if you'll regret one-clicking!!
Beth Ashworth was born in Manchester in 1990, but shortly moved to the modest city of Coventry where she was raised and still resides now.
As a vivid reader from a very early age, Beth has always been keen to put her words onto paper. As a child she was always found with either a book in her hand, a pen and notepad or a computer games controller.
Starting off by initially writing alternate endings to her favourite Jacqueline Wilson books from around the age of ten, Beth has continued to grow and love her passion for books.
Eventually, after many unfinished books and short stories, she finally decided to follow her passion and write books that she hopes people will love.
When she isn't reading or writing, Beth loves to spend time with her husband and friends
