Interesting. It is not what I was speccing, but I liked it. It is different.

I am glad I read this series. Very little happens in each book, and yet it evolves. The developvent goes slowly and in a monotonous way, but this is a good thing. In fact, that sameness, that repetitiveness is what diferenciates it from other books. It gives the series its own personality, you come to expect the routine and it is gratifying.

I can't deny either that I am conflicted morally about the things that go on

When I saw that this book was finally coming out in July, I was super excited!! I have been waiting for this book for a year. As soon as I begun to read it I was pulled right back into the complex world of Brianna and Stephan. Their story is such a bitter sweet one, that has me behaving as if I know these two people in real life! I am so emotionally invested in their story, that I laugh when they do, and cry when they cry!

Recommends it for: Fans of BDSM romantica, and the Master/Slave dynamics in particular.


I could be...rejected for every single subsequent title I request on NetGalley this year...And I Would. Not. Care...Why? Because I read Truth early and nothing, absolutely nothing else matters! Finding Anna is the most crack-a-licious, absorbing, and addictive BDSM romantica series that I'm currently following. I was shouting when I got approved and immediately texting my fellow Stephan/Brianna fan-girlfriends screenshots of my email...That's how bad I wanted it, because

5 Stars and Spoiler Free!

Okay, I waited F.O.R.E.V.E.R for Truth… like years! Well, it felt like years. But oh Sherri did not disappoint!

I was told that there was going to be a cliffy and when I heard that I was thinking to myself, do I really want to put myself through that? Umm…. FUCK YES!

So with that said, let’s get the disclaimer out of the way, yes there’s a cliffy. I was okay with it though. I know, crazy right? Look, I’ll be the first person to tell

When I found out this was available from NetGalley and I could finally solve the cliffhanger, I requested it immediately. And had to wait a week to be approved. This is my review.

Obviously don’t read this if you haven’t read Slave and Need. I tried carefully to avoid any Spoilers but I would still recommend caution if you haven’t read Truth just yet.


I know it probably doesn’t seem like it right now but you really should be celebrating. Do you realize what Brianna just did? Take a moment

Love the progression of Brianna and Stephan's Journey
I have devoured this series. From the moment I read the first page in 'Slave', I haven't been able to quit reading. Stephan and Brianna are quickly becoming one of my favorite couples.

The plot thickens in this book, with Brianna's dad coming out of the woodwork, seemingly determined to reclaim the daughter he threw away. Maybe he thinks he can get more for her the second time around??? A little late for paternal concern if you ask me!

The only reason that this book was a 4 vs. 5 star read for me
So, Need ended on a major cliffhanger. Just like Slave did.
It got resolved a little too quickly for my tastes, but somehow it was still believable.

I considered 4 stars, like the previous two, but Truth just wasn't on the same level for me.

Regardless, I still enjoyed it a lot and will conclude the series with Trust

It ended on a cliffhanger again, but this time I was prepared.

I have so many feels after finishing this book! Oh, Stephan! Just when Brianna starts to recover from her traumatic time with Ian Pierce, so many obstacles get put in your way. This third book in the series starts right where Need ended - but to say more would be a spoiler. This series just gets better and better. I can't wait for the next - final - installment.

Another 10 perfect stars from me!!!!!

Stephan...*sigh*, he's the most adorable-patient-loveable male character in books, and I adored him so f***ing much, can't get enough of him!

This book is deeply madly consuming! And I think I'm going to need my "SANITY" while waiting the 4th installment! Damn!

This is not a typical BDSM story.

I'm not sure how many books there are going to be in this series but these cliffhangers are starting to kill me.

I just want a HEA for Stephan and Brianna. So much tragedy and heartbreak, let them find the love and happiness they both deserve.

The book starts off from the last cliffhanger and starts the ball rolling for how things proceed.

Right away Brianna goes back into herself but with the love and

I was waiting for the third book in this series for what felt like forever! I fell in love with Slave and Need ( the first two books in the series) and I devoured Anna and Stephan's Story. My heart was breaking for Anna in books one and two for all she had been through and all that she lost. Those books touched me so much that I carried Anna's story in my head for months after reading the books.

Truth continues Anna's journey and is just as amazing as Need and Slave.

Warning: Don't read unless you read book 1 and 2. Also very mild spoilers without tags.

Since I joined Goodreads after reading book 1 and 2 there’s no review of them yet, but let me say this. I actually liked the first book and the second one was okay as well, although I had some mixed feelings there.

Now here’s book 3 and I don’t know what happened but I struggled a lot with this one.

My biggest issue was definitely the portrayal of Brianna. While I understand where her demeanor comes from, I

First I have to give a huge THANK YOU to The Writer's Coffee Shop for sending me an ARC copy of Truth and for allowing me to be on this EPIC blog tour for Truth. I have to start this review off by saying this series is off the hook! I have never ever wanted to read a book and then re-read it again until the next book came out. This is how this series is.

Originally read July 1-2, 2013

It has been quite a journey for Brianna. After Stephan had rescued her from sex slavery and helping her heal, it is in this book that you truly see Brianna’s progress. She had transitioned from being helpless to making decisions on her own. If you’ve read Slave and Need, you know her past had truly broken this young girl physically and mentally. While my heart broke for her then, it is now empowered and cheering her on to finally live her life.

Once again the queen of cliff hangers sucked me in and left me in tears. Sherri wrote a masterpiece with this one. Just when you think Brianna and Stephan are going to have their happy ever after, reality and outside forces strike and set them back again. Brianna is getting her strength back, she is facing life and issues with a new sense of strength that Stephan has trying to help her find.

They finally were able to share their feelings with each other and realize what they can give in this

Exceptional, Enthralling, thought- provoking, soul gripping and shockingly intense! Truth by Sherri Hayes is another ACE and I was one of the lucky ones who got an ARC.

WOW! What a story. I’ve always had mixed feelings every time I re- visit this complicated world, yet I can seem to help myself. In this storyline Hayes has woven, things aren’t simply just BLACK OR WHITE, I’d say there are

Because nobody protected my emotions from this book!

I'm going to start w/ALL the Negative:
1. Found this on the last page
Look for final installment in Stephan and Brianna's story coming 2014.
2. Seriously wait until 93% to plant the waterwork scene then fade to black.
3. Why am I cradling my reader like a child?
4. Why???
5. Why????

No spoilers here because nobody gave me any. Yeah, I'm that spiteful.

Truth picks up right where Need left off, yup, at that cliffy that had me gasping for air. Well, at the end of Need I was addicted to the Finding Anna series, well I passed that level and now I'm a slave to my Kindle.

Waited really long for this book, so very happy to finally get my paws on it, but I feel kind of let down…

The main reason why I _loved_ this book was Stephan. I don’t think anybody would have been better for Brianna than he has been. He is only human and made a few small mistakes, like forcing issues when she wasn’t ready (the wax, watching Logan & Lily). Got to give him props for his amazing self-restraint! He is really a gentleman Dom.. my fav kind of man. Loved the way he always knew what
The previous book ended with Brianna's father knocking at her door and her opening it. This one continues on from that point.

Brianna has come so far with Stephan helping her get over the trauma of being a sex slave to a sadistic master only to have her father show up and want to bring her home with him. But. Is he the one who sold her to the sex trafficker in the first place. And why does he want her to return home with him? Will the "Truth" be known?

The author has a unique writing style that takes me a few pages to get into, but after a few pages, I can’t stop reading.
Truth starts exactly were Need left off. I don’t want to say much about the cliffy in Need in case anyone who has not read it. However, I loved that we start exactly where we left off. I was worried that the author was going to do a “3 months later.”
In Truth, we see how Brianna has progressed since Stephan saved her from Ian, her capturer, 3 months before. Brianna and Stephan

What is the truth? Can Anna handle the Truth? In the third book in Finding Anna series, Anna's father, John, shows up to claim his daughter. This is the father who sold her to the sadist Ian. Suddenly, he waltzes in and wants to take his daughter back? He wants to protect her now? I don't think so. Stephan feels exactly the same.

There are some interesting questions posed in this story. Exactly what happened for Ian to take possession of Anna? Is the reader to believe John's side of the story? Or

I waited on pins and needles for this book. A whole year of wondering what was going to happen with Brianna's father in that doorway. I started reading as soon as it downloaded to my kindle and I finished less than 48 hours later.

First let me say that Hayes's writing is excellent and the story and characters are wonderful. I love this series.

However, this installment of the story felt slower. I wanted Brianna's character to progress more, at least beyond her and Stephan's relationship. I
