About the Book
Blake Carlton, the camera-shy son of Hollywood’s Darling, dodges the invasive limelight and scripted relationships that so often accompany fame. But when his mother’s popularity declines and she falls into a depression, he offers himself up as the next bachelor on a reality show, hoping to reignite interest in her career while creating a way for them to finally connect.
After her fiancé dumps her for her best friend, aspiring photographer Harlow Tucker is done with romance—until her beloved, disabled sister requests her aid to start a nonprofit. Harlow agrees to do whatever is needed to raise funds, even reluctantly costarring on a dating show with a notorious womanizer who distrusts anyone behind a lens.
As Blake and Harlow navigate the superficiality of a reality show, their preconceived notions of love are challenged. Deciding to trust each other feels like the ultimate risk, but taking that chance could lead to a love truly picture-perfect, worth both of their hearts.
In My Opinion
Susan Tuttle’s sophomore release does not disappoint. With an unwitting dating show contestant, a Hollywood stars son prone to headlines, and marvelous banter, Love Your, Truly is a story contemporary romance fans shouldn’t miss.
Harlow’s kind and generous heart is seen through the photographs she takes and her actions that follow. Blake longs for a different kind of relationship than the physical ones he’s used to and, while skeptical of her character at first, he’s drawn to Harlow.
If I could change one thing about this book (and for once, I’m not going to say I wanted more romance!), it would be more of a hashing out of the revelation Harlow shares with her sister. It would have been more well-rounded if Harlow and Mae’s mom and dad were included in that conversation. While the issue is evident through Harlow’s actions, it felt glossed over when the truth comes out.
But, alas, books can only be so many pages, and the events that lead up to a moving salvation experience makes this novel more than worth the read. Susan Tuttle is definitely one author I’m looking forward to reading more from.
