Broken Truth Blog Tour
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.)
“I know you’re watching me, Baby.” The groggy sound of his voice startled her somewhat.
Composing herself, Charlie smiled. “No, I’m not.”
He grinned sleepily before brilliant blue eyes opened and met her stare. “I think you are,” he murmured.
Her heart began to flutter repeatedly as their eyes continued to stare at one another. It was always like this between them, this playful yet sizzling chemistry that Charlie hoped they would never lose. “So what are you going to do about it then?” she challenged with a smirk.
Raising his eyebrows slightly, he gave her a look that practically melted her insides to a puddle of goo. Licking her lips seductively, Charlie continued tracing her fingers across his stomach, enjoying the feel of his skin blazing beneath her touch.
“Are you teasing me, Baby?” he asked with a hint of amusement. Lifting both of his arms to rest behind his head, Charlie watched as he tensed the muscles in his abdomen, defining the already ridged muscles further.
She knew he was playing dirty, but she also knew that she could play dirtier. It was definitely time for her to up her game she decided as she removed her hand from his body and placed it on her left thigh. Very gently, she ran her fingertips from the top of her leg to the bottom. His eyes widened as he watched her fingers pursue an unrelenting path over her soft skin until she stopped at the juncture of her thighs.

I received an ARC copy of this novella for my honest spoiler free review.
Broken Truth was a captivating read. We begin with Charlotte (Charlie), she has an internship at a boutique but to make end meet she buses tables. She loves the fashion industry and does what she has to in hopes of getting hired full time. One night while working at the bar she meets Callum Ellis. She was so smitten by him that she couldn’t wait on the table. He also saw a connection for he waited outside for her until she finished her shift. Sparks fly and fast forward a little over a year and these two are still together.
Is this your typical love story no, but it was more realistic than most. Relationships are not predictable. They have bumps in the road and this story was full of those bumps. People tend to interfere with the lives of others and how you handle the meddlers will determine if you will overcome the hardship.
Charlie and Callum live together but don’t spend every night together. In a situation where your boyfriend is only home for the weekends you would think it would lead to many questions, right? But you love him so much you wouldn’t think to question his loyalty. I will say that I was frustrated with Charlie’s blasé attitude towards Callum’s lack of presence.
Charlie is a smart, sexy independent woman. The friendship she has with Xavier, Lucy and Amelia was awesome. I loved that they were there for her through both the good and HORRIBLE times. I especially loved how protective they got with her when her life went to hell. And then we have Callum…poor Callum. First of all this man is sexy, smart and owns his own company. I love that he did not give up of the love of his life.
And I think I’ve said too much already so I will stop there. This book was pretty damn good and the hot sex scenes didn’t hurt it at all. In the end this story all came together and Ashwood wrote it well. This was a very good debut novel. I would definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to see what else Ashwood writes.
