Book Review: Broken Truth by Beth Ashworth


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?
(Please note that this book contains strong language and graphic scenes of a sexual nature which are intended for a more mature audience.)

Our Review:
4 Stars

Overall I enjoyed this book. The beginning was slow for me but about half way thru it picks up and then I was not able to put it down.

Charlie lands a dream apprenticeship at an upscale boutique with low pay. In order to make ends meet she has another job as a waitress. While working a late shift at the bar she meets Callum and there is an instant attraction. She tries avoiding him throughout the night, but Callum has other plans.

About a year later they are still together and are maintaining a long distance relationship. Charlie only gets to see Callum on weekends and hardly ever speaks to him during the week. They tend to make the most of their weekends, and the steamy sex scenes are HOT!!!

Charlie seems content with this arrangement for a while. Eventually she notices some changes in Callum which starts problems in paradise. Everything takes a turn for the worst when Charlie decides to pay Callum a surprise visit.

I honestly thought that I knew Callum’s secret. The more I found out how wrong I was the more I was intrigued and had to know more. This is a really good book for a debut novel. I cannot wait to see Beth Ashworth future work.
