For the next eleven days all Amelia Adler wants is a nice relaxing vacation on the beach. All she’ll do is drink pineapple margaritas and read sexy steamy romance novels. She doesn’t want to think about the stress of her daily life nor the fact that she doesn’t know what to do with her life.

OMG!!! I loved this book

I loved all the characters, and Amelia and Craig were so cute. And I laughed and smiled throughout the whole story.



For once there is a book not filled with the drama of keeping the couple apart, and the bullshit of the girl's emotional issues standing in between them. Amelia did have an interesting past but she's a strong person because of that.

At first I was kind of reluctant to read this book because I like a lot of drama in my stories, because let's face it, that's

Oh my gosh!! I need more of this book! That was one cliffhanger, but the book was soooo good. I love Craig, he made me all:



And then there's Cory. Come on, there has to be a story about him.



For once there is a heroine that didn't piss me off. I like that Amelia is still strong even after all happened to her. She's still cute and sassy. I love all the other characters and I hope that after this there will be a story on Ben and Pen.

CANT WAIT FOR MORE!!

Sweet and Cute Read

I've been kind of in a mood lately because everything I was reading was kind of the same. I was reading about girls hooding up with the bad boy and how they can't stand to be with out each other and the drama that they have to come over and then the book ends. That's great and all but it was getting kind of boring, predictable really. Until I found Love of Truth.

I was laughing and yes, I was wait for that drama that Craig and Amelia would have to overcome. There were so many

Laugh out loud, AWESOME!!!

I don't know if I love this book because I'm Asian and Amelia is half Asian, but you don't see many stories written about Asian people, and yes, I read Crazy Rich Asians and this book is sooo much better.

I laughed, I teared, I awwed, and I was curious. It was an overall good book from a new author. I can't wait for the next one.

A MUST READ!!! A VERY FUN AND LIGHT READ

I had such a blast reading this book. The characters are so realistic I felt like I knew people like them in real life. The author did such a great job developing characters and paving the path for the series. I really hope there will be books for Ben and Cory.

Cons: The story did take a bit to get into, but the setting descriptions won't leave you bored. There were some grammatical errors, but I saw the note that a new edition that will be released. I thi

A LAUGH OUT LOUD, FUN READ

This book made me homesick for the Oregon coast. The author did such a great job with all the details and surroundings that Oregon has to offer. Down to Stumptown coffee. Miss that stuff. I might be partial to this book because of the setting but I can't say that I didn't enjoy the story.

I loved all the characters. I really really really want a story about Cory in the near future. I think that might be good funny read. I fell in love with the main characters right away

This book was so ... I have no idea what to say about it. It was funny, then cute, and then the ending came out of no where.

I saw a lot of the reviews saying that the book was bad because the author changed the ending and made it a cliffhanger. I don't like hangers myself, and I saw on her Facebook that it's not coming out until winter, but I think it's going to be an exciting one. I'm mean come on how did you not see it coming.

I loved this book. I connected with Amelia right away and I loved that Craig was someone that she needed. I liked that the author set it up so that they had time to get to know each other and then fall in love. They didn't just jump into bed with each other right away like most of the books. I loved the chemistry that she set up between them. I can't believe that this was her first book. I think that the author did a great job. I can't wait for more.

Bravo to the author!

Such a great read. I was so sad how the book ended, but I look forward to more. I hope Oliver will release the next one soon. This book had me laughing and then sad because I can relate with the situations and then curious at the ending. It is not a predictable read, that's for sure. I want to know what will come next so badly.

I just have to get this off my chest first: I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

Amelia is a very realistic character. She's smart, independent, and all around the girl next door. I don't usually fall for the heroine of the story, but I have such a girl crush on her. I think she's the girl that we all secretly want to be. And the way the story is written, you would want for her and Craig to work out. I like Craig, but I love Cory more, and I'll leave it as that. I also want to know what's going on with Ben and P

I don't usually write reviews, but I had to say something about this book. I had such a fun time reading this story. It is not something you're expecting too. From the cover I thought it was going to be a dark, mysterious, kind of love story, but it's the complete opposite. It's light and playful, with some adventure and so gosh darn funny!! The heroine is kick ass strong but very cute! And the hero had me licking my lips. I've read other erotica that left me hot and squirmy, as did this one, b ...more

I received an ARC from this new author in exchange for an honest review.
I'd give it 4.5 out of 5 stars if that was available, but I felt it was closer to a 5 than a 4.....

Catching some sun, having adventures, cooking good food, lounging with a good book, playing with her sidekick Larry (the dog), and enjoying catching up with friends--that's all Amelia Adler has planned for her beach side vacation. That is until she locks eyes with her gorgeous neighbor Craig Patrice. Love of Truth by CT Oliver

I read this book two times since I downloaded the first version last month and I've been reading it slowly the second time to savor everything. The characters are downright funny and real. The dialogue is one of my favorite thing about this book. This book is just RAW with emotions and REAL! The couple is so sweet and the sex scenes are sweet and slowly gets very steamy - that's what makes it realistic. The couple doesn't jump into bed right away, they slowly build chemistry through their attrac ...more

I LOVED this book! There was humor and some emotional aspect and then a different ending then what you'd expect. I didn't really liked the cliffhanger, but I'm excited that there's more to come. I loved Craig. He's gentle and caring. And for once there isn't a female character that I hated. I loved this book and recommended it to all my friends. Loved it!

What the H?!

When I initially looked at this book, I didn't realize it would be a trilogy.

This book is your typical romance for about 98% of it. But than things get weird-and kind of scary-at the very end.

I'm just shocked. This was an unexpected turn of events in a novel I've read. I like it.

Amelia and Craig are sickly cute together. Gosh, it's like an overload of love and affection. Their nice little vacation romance extends into the city and finally they talk about forever. It's not to shocking

After finishing C.T. Oliver’s Love of Truth, I believe I stared at my Kindle for a solid ten minutes wondering what the heck just happened. What I thought was a nice sweet romance novel quickly and unexpectedly morphed into a thriller with a teaser ending that promises more excitement in the follow-up sequel. Oliver devotes a good portion of the book developing the romance between protagonists, Amelia and Craig, delving into their backstories so that readers can better understand the two charact ...more

Wow, what a lovely read. Such a tender and touching (and seriously smexy) love story, but the dark undertones of Amelia and Craig's past have a way of reaching up, like an undertow that snags you from a sweet wave and threatens to pull you down into the dark. A fun ride, with some emotional heft, seriously sweet lovin' and a twisty denouement that made me anxious for some follow up! Great job on your debut novel, C.T.! I particularly enjoyed the side characters (there's quite a cast), and could ...more

I got this book for free from Amazon and I may be being judgemental but usually when a free is not normally as good a read as a paid one. well I was quite wrong and not afraid to say it!!

this has to be one of the best books I have read this year, the dynamic between the characters was fantastic, some real lol moments in this book. I didn't realise this wasn't a stand alone book and was disappoint when I was left hanging at the end. Can't wait for the second book to come

I have mixed feelings about this book. It was the perfect summer read, fun, sexy and with likeable characters. But on the other hand, it was full of clichés and lacked of drama or interesting plot from the 50% until the final chapters.

I'm not a huge fan of books where everthing is perfect during the whole time but then at 95% everything comes crashing down. It makes me feel like the end is rushed and not very developed.

I liked the intro, but found things that didn't make sense for me in this book. While reading, many times I questioned if I was reading the same book that had an avg rating of 4.27 ....

To me, the way they met was believable ... The supporting characters were fun and interesting. How quickly they made their "connection" to me was questionable. Then, they continued to thank each other. And the dialogue was not realistic to me at all. I felt like the story shifted from one extreme to another - it e

What is it and books and cliffhangers! I just don't understand it. The book is told from both point of views and of course I love Craig's more, "okay, when I talk to her, I'm also going to have to talk to that dog about common courtesy, a.k.a No Co**-Block!" He's also a sweetheart, and caring, "hey, I know we haven't met, my name is Craig. I don't think you should drive if you're feeling frantic, and it looks like you don't want to let him go, so why don't I drive you?" He's also a playful guy, ...more
