original Blog Post Truth took almost seven years to tell The fifth installment of the McCullough Mountain Series, this is the story of Luke McCullough and Tristan Hughes The best friends who were reallypartners and lovers The lovers who hid from all for fear of condemnation.
Luke is an angry man He is angry for having lost his chance of becoming the athlete he lived for He is angry that his siblings were seemingly getting the chances he thinks he should have had but never will When he meets Tristan, he gets even angrier at having to face himself in the mirror, unwilling to accept who and what he really was Tristan had always known he was gay but his best friend and lover turned on him when they were caught by his father It did not take long before he realized that he was losing everyone As soon as he could, he got out and 5 Heartbreaking Stars Source eARC for Honest Review Courtesy of Author and Secret Cravings Publishing FINALLY Throughout the whole series there has been a build up with Luke and Tristan and here we finally get to see behind their very beautiful and trying relationship As well as this book has two of my favorite themes friends to lovers and straight to gay Luke is a McCullough but he was also the shining star until his knee went out with all his dreams Now back home, he is bitter and resentful and is taking it out on the McCulloughs It was easier to lash out that accept defeat Luke s cousin comes home from college with a best friend named Tristan who also will be the new employee to the logging company.
Although this is book 5 in the McCullough Mountain series, Forsaking Truth can be read as a stand alone without any confusion That said, as someone who has read it as a stand alone, I plan to add the previous books in the series to my reading list as the McCulloughs are a rather entertaining and delightful family and I would like to read each of the siblings story In this installment in the series, we are treated to Luke s story and his adjustment to major life changes Destined to be a professional athlete, Luke suffered an injury during his junior year in college that rendered his career path and dream an impossibility As such, it is no surprise that Luke is a sullen and withdrawn man, even with those closest to him his family This is what makes his rea Forsaking Truth made my heart ache and the tears run down my face It was both beautifully written and heartbreaking Forsaking Truth is an ugly look at the injustice and fear faced by those that find love outside the mainstream of societal norm Even those that are in the relationship can face punishing regret and fear of being outed Love is a private thing, yet a joy you want to share, something that not everyone will find How heartbreaking to find love when it shames you and you need to hide it.
Forsaking Truth hits so close to home My best friend in high school was unashamedly, flamingly out there I loved him to pieces and still do Years later we are still friends though now separated by the span of our country I remember being there, holding him as he cried or recovered from being beaten up just for being
The first 90% of the book was spent going over the past 7 years repeating what we ve already come to know from previous books in the series Because of that I was never able to fully connect with the character s story and actually believe their love was true When we finally get to the last 10% and learn what happened after the event s that took place in the previous book Faking It, the story is rushed through until the end 2 1 2 star read for me.
Lydia Michaels YOU DID IT Tristan and Luke.
I ve been waiting for their story ever since I read my first McCullough Mountain book.
I m speechless right now It was everything I wanted to read andI had my concerns, I ll admit as I wasn t sure if Lydia could write an M M romance like I was hoping.
my expectations were extremely high I m ashamed I had doubts, these are Lydia s McCullough men and she did right by them I feel that it s so muchthan just an M M romance So much .
Thank you, thank you, thank you What an amazing gift.
