    One thought on “Fighting the Truth”

    1. Fighting the Truth is a LGBT story of two best friends who quickly find themselves drawn to one another. By far the strongest aspect of the book is how detailed the growing passion between the two boys is. Not for the weak of heart, the story details every facet of their raunchy love fest. But the lust isn't the only factor aching to appeal here, there is also a bit of mystery thrown in to hook would be readers. Nathan, gun-ho in coming out and making his relationship with Isaac public, is const [...]

    2. I really liked this novel. It follows the story of Nathan and Isaac, who have been best friends since they were young. They eventually become more than just friends, but Isaac doesn’t share the same view as Nathan and wants to keep their relationship low key; only allowing a couple of friends to know about them. I found this to be quite an intriguing read. I like how the plot is written; from future to past, allowing the developed characters to slowly gain some history. There are a few really [...]

    3. It didn't take me long to find myself hooked right into Fighting the truth, and though I didn't really know what to expect at first, I am definitely glad that I gave it a chance. The main things that stood out to me is the pure dynamic traits of the characters and the vivid writing style that is used to express them.The author does a great job of giving just enough detail (without going over the top) so that it's easy to visualize the characters probably just how the author intended them to be i [...]

    4. The premise of this book sounded interesting to me, but the story itself was disappointing, it looks too much like soap opera stuff. I was curious as to why Nathan was leaving Isaac, but when the reason was revealed, I found it not believable. The actions of the main characters, especially Nathan, seemed totally illogical to me and as a result, I didn't like either. The more pages I read, the more I thought both Isaac and Nathan were too weak and spineless and at times even plain dumb. I also di [...]

    5. Few books pass the test of time, however this one comes through with flying colors. Tara Leigh takes you on a heartfelt journey through the lives of Nathan and Isaac. This is the kind of book that will reach out and touch you when you least expect it. I feel the story carried very well and kept my full attention all the way through without any pauses. I only wish the book was longer so I didn't have to see it end. I am recommending this book to all my like minded friends.

    6. One of the worst books I've ever read. Overwrought, emotionally immature, unbelievable characterization, and overall simple. It's about as groundbreaking as a Lifetime movie, and about as entertaining as one as well.

    7. Unfortunately, I somehow managed to abstain from closing the book after the first 15 pages. Should have listened to my first instinct, but alas, I got to the end. One star is too much for this book. No stars is appropriate.I get the idea behind the story but it was terribly, terribly executed.The plot got dragged on way too long, and with some highly unbelievable and unrealistic "twists and turns". And the main charactersI think it's the first time ever I've disliked both main characters in a bo [...]
