As a reader I greatly enjoy the way the author, Jennifer Ryan pens a story. The stories themselves are always packed full of heart racing suspense, sizzling romance and of course memorable characters. With that being written, “True to You,” was a novel that I just could not sink my nails into. I tried, oh believe me I did try! I just failed at attempt however for the most point I did like this book.
The writing of the overall story was excellent. I always enjoy the writing style of the author. The writing of the book was pristine, smooth and to the point. Basically, the writing was spot on as was the romance. The romance wasn’t as high profiled as I would liked but regardless of that minor detail I liked the attraction between Dawson and Cara.
Dawson, being the hero I think got a little more attention in this story then Cara, the heroine did. Dawson’s character was very centered and established. He was a man that was used to playing coy as an uncovered agent and he knew how to work the people that he was watching. Dawson was sexy, smart and clever. His character was well worth the time that the author had spent on his personality.
Cara on the other hand was not a trustworthy character. She was strong willed which I liked but she wasn’t someone who was going to spill her secrets to a stranger. Unusually, it was Cara who ended up stealing the story for me. I liked her Cara most of all as she didn’t depend on Dawson that much. Maybe, I should say she didn’t need him in her life but she wanted him to be part of it. This was a little different romance but I very much liked it.
I would give this book a thumbs up but I would also like to point out that this story isn’t an absolute favorite. It was just a good story to read on a cold Winter’s day.
A Montana Man risks everything for the woman he loves . . .
Undercover DEA Special Agent Dawson King spent five months in a Montana prison establishing a fake identity to take down a ruthless drug dealer and put him behind bars.

She’s irresistible . . . but is she also dangerous?
From the moment he enters her life, King makes Cara . . . nervous. The handsome drifter says he wants to get his life together . . . but there is something about him that doesn’t quite ring true. Cara wants to believe in him, yet she holds back despite the way he awakens dormant dreams and leaves her breathless with his sexy smile, steamy kisses, his every touch.
When the explosive truth comes out and she’s betrayed by the ones she loves, Cara must decide—can she trust her heart, or should she listen to her head?
