Truth & Temptation (Summer Love Book 3) - Riley Edgewood

Thanks to Riley Edgewood for providing me with this ARC.

This novel started out wonderfully. There were a couple of surprises in the first few chapters, which I thought was interesting because most of the time those come later on in the book. The story slowed down a little bit in the middle, but it did not bore me. Far from it, actually, and it picked right back up in the last few chapters.

Teagan struggles with a few different problems, mostly stemming from the fact that her mother practically dumped her on her grandparents door the day she was born. In Truth and Temptation, we watch Teagan try to overcome the feeling of being worthless, because that's what she has been told her whole life. She doesn't feel like she deserves to be loved. She lies to the people closest to her. When Alec walks into her life, we witness a significant change in her.

I would've liked to have seen more about Teagan's father in this story, at least know who he was or his reaction to Teagan. I believe there is a novella concerning him though.

Also, this story can be read as a standalone, however, I was a tad bit disappointed when I found out things from the other books which I have not read yet. Which is why I need to read them in order, and that was my fault. Still, there wasn't any major spoilers, but if you feel the way that I do about reading a series, you might want to grab books one and two before reading this one.
