From the moment Andrew Wise and McKenzie Evans first met, they tried to fight the magnetism that pulled them together. No matter how hard they struggled with their feelings, their love was a force so strong that neither of them could deny it.

The news of Olivia Hamilton’s pregnancy, and the understanding that Drew is the father, led McKenzie to flee with the hope of rectif

The third book in the trilogy is the perfect wrap up to McKenzie and Drew's story. We get to see where Drew comes from, and we get a better understanding of the truly messed up home he grew up in. Mickie once again proved she has a heart of gold - and that she's loyal, nearly to a fault.
Baby Mamma (aka:Olivia) is back with a vengeance and trying to worm her way into Drew's family. She's only a supporting character, but she still likes to cause trouble and st

Can I just say that absolutely loved the dual point of views from Mickie and Drew. It was just what we needed to feel all of the emotions. Author Jeanne McDonald did an amazing job at knowing what chapters we needed to see through Mickie’s eyes and what chapter we needed to view through Drew’s.

This story pulled so many emotions from me as devoured it in one sitting. One minute I was in stitches laughing, the next I was sniffling at something Mickie and Drew where going through. Jeanne knows exa

This is the third and final book for McKenzie (Mickie) and Andrew (Drew). And what a sweet, loving and awesome ending. Some spoils to the story may follow! There was a bit of everything in this book; humor within the first few pages of the story, eventual tears, frustration, hurt and LOTS of Anger!!! Oh yeah, and the resounding SLAP that will heard and felt for a long time!!

I will say, I did not want to start this book, since I knew it was the end for all these characters. I will

The conclusion to The Truth in Lies series did not disappoint! This story picks up where book 2: The Certainty of Deception, left off with Drew and Mackenzie on the plane flying to Gavin & Morgan's wedding. Mackenzie makes the huge decision to face her best friend Olivia who is pregnant and claims the baby is Drew's; along with facing Drew's father who is unpleasant.

Wonderful conclusion with a twist I didn't see coming! The love that Drew and Mack have for each other is a special type of lo

What a sweet, sweet way to end (begin) Drew and McKenzie’s story.

First of all, this is my favorite cover of the three. I like how the sun is shining in the background as a symbol of, hey, we made to daylight! WOOHOO! Secondly, the way McKenzie handled herself throughout this entire series but mostly here, in the third installment, makes my heart happy. This girl is a strong, loves you with all her heart, despite you faults, kind of girl and I admire that. Third? Drew is simply put, awesome, and

I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review by author Jeanne McDonald. This is book 3 of The Truth in Lies Saga by the author.

Andrew and McKenzie are gearing up for his brothers wedding but Olivia is making things more difficult for them and she keeps throwing her being pregnant by Drew in their faces. Drew and his father have never really gotten along since he was little but now his father is causing more animosity for Drew and McKenzie is caught in the middle. Things come to a surpri

The finale to the Truth in Lies saga was well worth the wait!!
I hate that Drew & Mckenzie's story is over but at the same time I'm thrilled that certain people's true nature came to light for everyone.
Drew and Mickie's story has been one of my favorites, their relationship has been hard fought for and in the end worth every second of fighting to get where they are.
Mickie was the last to realize just how destructive Oliva's treatment of her was but thankfully she eventually saw the her for th

I'm completely torn with this one. Not torn because of it's content or it's quality but because it's the end of McKenzie & Drew's tale. As with the other installments in the series, Truth is beautifully written and the author has once again captured the reader's heart with her words. Not only is this a tale of love but also friendships, good and bad, and how those friendships can make us better even if some of those "friends" intent is not for the better. If you haven't been reading this ser ...more

**I received this book as an ARC for an honest review from my blog Two Feisty Angels and a Devil***
This is the third book in the series. You need to read the other two books in the series.
I loved this story. Bitchy best friend who won’t let go of the man that you love. Yeah that is her. Drew and Mack are trying to get the HEA. But Olivia just won’t go away. Then with Drew’s father also looking down on them, it makes things harder. But Mack and Drew push through. I loved the scenes with Drew and

Once again, Ms. McDonald wraps us up in the perfect tale. Mickie and Drew are finally together, though attempting to keep it under wraps until after Gavin and Morgan's wedding. Nice try, guys. It doesn't quite work out, but let's face it, we all want to see them sucking face in front of Olivia while giving her the middle finger.

Family drama among the Wise clan is at an all time high, but rather than getting sucked in, we see Drew rise above it all. Mickie is his ever present silent rock, his anc

This has truly been a brilliant series and I have loved reading this story. McKenzie and Drew’s relationship has had so many ups and downs, I wasn’t quite sure how there story was going to end. I was really excited to read it and I was so excited to find out what was going to happen next. I hated Olivia. I tried to like her but she was also so maliputive and the way she treated McKenzie was awful and she is exactly the same in this book. Lots of twists and turns and there was one moment that I n ...more

I loved the first two books of this series and the third, The Truth Be Told did not disappoint in any way! Perfect ending to a great series. We see more of Drew's family and in the process, learn more about him, there is a super twist that I totally didn't see coming, which is unusual because most books you read, you aren't really surprised.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series!

Ahhhhhh the whole book was perfection!!!! I loved how everything came together. There was no wondering at the end what happened to who and how. It told of what happened to every character in the book. I was sad to finish it but was a wonderful story line beginning to end!!! Great job Jeanne!!!! I love ALL your books!!!!

The ending to this Saga was ABSOLUTELY PURE Perfection. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the explosion to happen with Whore-livia, I couldn't wait for it to happen and when it did..... I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. McKenzie is such an amazing character, I just love every piece of her. Amazing job Jeanne!

Did not disappoint. I loved the way things worked out for them and Nate as well. I didn't expect that. Mickie was a bit annoying by letting Liv walk all over her. I just wanted her to stick up for herself a bit more. but hey I get it.

I absolutely loved this series and this is the perfect ending!!! I read the first two books not realizing that there was a third book not out yet. I hate waiting BUT this was so worth the wait! If you loved the first two books you will not be disappointed with this one!!

Destined To Be Together - Finally Together

Book 3 - We get to finally meet Drew's sister, Andi, who we've either heard about or Drew's spoken to on the phone. I wanted to see how she interacted with both Drew and Gavin who are close and also have a friendship rather than being just brothers. Andi is also very much part of the friendship and close to both but is obviously a little closer to Drew. I'm so glad that she gets with Jared who deserves to be with someone who can return his feelings. We s

I really haven't been as engrossed in a series as I have like this one for a good while. Nothing more to say than I loved the characters, especially granny! The story line kept me interested and I really just couldn't put all three books down.
