True North (True #1) by Liora Blake ~T's Review~


This was the best surprise read of my year so far!! Also, if I am not mistaken, this is Liora Blake’s first book. Well, if this is what she does with a first book I can't wait to see where she goes from here. I loved it. The flow of the story and the writing is the kind I enjoy getting lost in. Even when I did put it down, all I could do was think about it ‘til I could pick it up again.

Small town girl and widow, Kate Mosely is in California to promote her latest book. She doesn’t really want to be there, but decides she that will just take it as it comes and try to enjoy the ride. Kate is a down to earth, smart, put together kind of a gal. So when an entourage of guys and a vaguely familiar celeb enters the green room of the talk show she’s been scheduled for, Kate isn’t fazed. What harm is a little flirt when she will be heading back home to Montana and will never see any of these people again?

The thing is, there seemed to be a connection while sharing the couch of this late night talk show. Did the vaguely familiar rapper just blush? Did she feel something sizzle between them? No way. Right?

For whatever reason, True North spoke to me. I am still smiling over the rapper and the writer. I loved the grown up, yet sexy feel to this read. The journey of self discovery and the unwavering love of a tabloid laden guy with nothing left to prove.

It’s moving, spellbinding and at times laugh-out-loud funny. I can’t wait to read what come next in the series!

5 STARS!


What happens when a bad-boy celebrity rocker meets a small-town bestselling novelist? Find out in this first book in the sizzling new True series by Liora Blake!

While most novelists would consider jetting off to Hollywood for a TV interview rather exciting, small-town Montana writer Kate Mosely finds it all a bit exhausting. After losing her husband in a car accident where she was behind the wheel, Kate has finally found her bearings in the world again, rebuilding a simple but stable life. And even if that means a lot of lonely nights watching old movies and quiet days writing obituaries for her hometown newspaper, Kate’s not sure she’s ready for her life to change—again.

Until she shares the stage—and a whole heap of carnal gazes—with rock star Trevor “Trax” Jenkins. Despite his intimidating on-stage bravado, underneath it Kate discovers a man with a Rilke poem tattooed on his arm, an appreciation for cronuts, and a snarky wit that matches her own.

As she and Trevor explore their heated chemistry, the scarred parts of Kate’s heart begin to heal, making room for a love so passionate it makes her want long-forgotten things equal parts naughty, heart-swelling, and joyful. But when a searing exposé in a trashy gossip magazine sends Kate running, will it threaten their chances at forever?
