Product Description

A New Adult novel from USA Today bestselling author Erin McCarthy

When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.

Tyler has told Rory that he’s not good enough for her. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t seem to stay away from her, and even when Rory knows she should push him away, something about him makes it nearly impossible for her to resist—even though her heart is at stake…

Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost…

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you'd think. 30 Nov 2013
By Jen @ Reading Lark VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
This may sound harsh, but I really wasn't expecting this to be a particularly good read. I don't know what it was that gave me that impression really, as the cover and copy are pretty good... Still, I was surprised by how involving I found this story. It was a quick read, and I found it quite hard to put down.

Perhaps one reason why I wasn't expecting to find True gripping was that it seems like the same plot as many other New Adult reads... Virginal college undergraduate meets a older, hot, bad boy and sparks start to fly. They then face many challenges as their worlds collide. I can see why this kind of story is written, and it does appeal, but there are only so many of the same kind of thing I can read before I start looking for something a little fresher.

What made the difference to me in True was that Rory was a shy virgin, but she also constantly surprised me, in the choices she made and how they differed from what I expected her to do. She is bluntly honest, and doesn't sit about worrying away about if things are her fault when something goes wrong. She doesn't let her bad boy, Tyler, get away with being an idiot and blowing her off. She calls him out on his poor choices, and it was so refreshing to read a female character who avoids creating drama when she hears things she doesn't like. She is deeply logical, and generally is able to express herself in a mature way to bring her point across. I also enjoyed how she was cracked open emotionally through the story; she moves from being quite reserved and emotionally unavailable to being aware of how important connecting with people is, in many ways.

I did find some aspects of the book to be the tiniest bit cheesy though...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be YA 7 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Erin McCarthy's mature adult books. I like her writing style. However, this book is a tad too immature for me. I have read YA and NA books but they are not my book of choice. This is listed as NA (New Adult) but apart from drug references, there is nothing to stop it appealing to YA (Young Adults) as there are no real sex scenes to speak of.

Rory Macintosh is a 20 year old virgin who has led quite a sheltered life since her mother died when Rory was 8. When she is at College she shares a dorm with two girls Kylie and Jessica who are very confident and party girls. They bring out a different side to Rory and she starts feeling more accepted and less of a loner. Kylie and Jessica often hook up with two guys called Nathan and Tyler. Jessica sleeps with Tyler but they are just 'f buddys'! Once they find out Rory is still a virgin they enlist the help of tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job...unbeknownst to Rory.

As usual with these books the tattooed bad boy turns out to be not such a bad boy (although I could have done without him being a smoker!). Tyler is interested in Rory but feels he's not good enough for her. He comes from the 'wrong side of the tracks' and his mother is a junkie and he is struggling to take care of his two brothers with the help of his older brother Riley.

I thought Rory being interested in a guy her best friend had slept with was a bit off. Also, when she does find out by eavesdropping on Kylie and Jessica's conversation that they had paid Tyler $100 to take her virginity (which he had still not taken at that point!), she didn't get angry enough in my opinion although that is supposedly because in the short space of time she had known Tyler she realised he wasn't the type of guy to do that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection! 13 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
God this book was like a breath of fresh air. It was exactly what I want a book to be. It was just perfect.

The characters were brilliant! There was no unnecessary drama or stupid decisions. They were so level headed. Rory I want to hug. She thought everything through, never jumped to silly conclusions and was not afraid to go after what she wanted when all was said and done. She stuck to her guns, was never whiny and was over all the most sensible character I've ever come across. I loved her because of that. Tyler I also loved. His situation broke my heart I just wanted to hug him and protect him from all the bad things in his life. He was so sweet and protective of Rory. He just wanted to do the right thing even if he ended up getting hurt. He wanted the best for Rory. Their relationship was so sweet and heart-warming, but at the same time heart-breaking.
Rory's friends I loved as well. Even though they were like polar-opposites to Rory in the sense that they were party animals and she wasn't they were still great friends to her. They were so loyal and thought that they were doing the right thing by helping their friend out with her "situation". One tiny thing that slightly bugged me though was when Rory found out that her friends payed Tyler to sleep with her. She never even confronted her friends over it. I would have been a little bit more upset over that but I could still understand Rory's logic behind not telling them. She didn't want to start into a big fight with her friends because she didn't want to lose them but I still think she should have said something.

There is so much more to this story than just Rory trying to lose her virginity. It is as much Tyler's story as it is hers.
