If you’re looking for a read with true-to-life characters who are broken, make mistakes, and have flaws, then Tammy L. Gray’s books need to be on your reading list. Until I Knew Myself, the first book in Gray’s new Bentwood series, is a great place to start.
In My Opinion
The Bentwood crew grew up together but life has fractured and severed several of the relationships that these five friends once held.
In Tyler Mitchell’s search for his family, he loses sight of what he’s always had—friends who protect and want the best for him, people who took him in after his mother passed away, and a woman who loves him. Yet, in his desperation to find his relatives, he just might destroy the best things in his life.
Until I Knew Myself is teeming with broken people who are struggling. Sure, some of them hide behind busyness or their careers, but each of these friends is hurting in their own way. And while Tyler and Jordan are the first to wrestle with their pasts, their disappointments, and their failures, there are plenty of unanswered questions in the lives of the others.
Tammy L. Gray writes real and raw emotions, characters who are flawed, make unwise choices, hurt those who love them, and have some growing up to do. But she also gives readers hope that on the other side of the search for self is resolution, satisfaction, and even joy.
With this fabulous start to the new series, I’m already looking forward to what’s next for this group of friends as they discover themselves and their potential.

About the Book
RITA Award-winning author Tammy L. Gray delivers an unforgettable new series following five struggling friends in search of the true meaning of family through secrets, betrayal and the unexpected influence of an outsider…
Tyler Mitchell grew up an orphan, taken in by his best friend’s family when he was only sixteen. Even though ten years have passed, and he’s been given everything he should ever want—a loving home, an adoring girlfriend, a successful career, and lifelong friendships—Tyler has always felt a foreigner in his own life.
When a surprising phone call reveals the death of his biological grandfather, Tyler’s seemingly perfect life starts to unravel. The people he loves most in the world have kept from him the greatest secret of all—knowledge of his father’s family.
Now hunting for more information about his past, Tyler discovers nothing is quite as it seems. And the definition of family is far more complicated than choosing between blood and loyalty.
