I met my true love when I was twenty-seven. He was handsome, charming, witty, and irresistible. Jayden Monroe came along when I was struggling with indecision and made things simple, turned monochrome into vivid color, and forever altered my perspective on life.

I was not naive enough to believe in happily ever after, but with Jayden, it seemed possible . . . until I real

★★★★! Loving the White Liar (stand-alone). A candid look at loving a man with ADHD!

“You’re my best friend,” he said tearfully, “my lover, my strength, my reason for being, which I never thought was possible. I never thought there was anyone for me.” He was openly crying as I looked down at him.”

Loving the White Liar is Hilary A Monroe, Hil’s story how she came to be and had to cope with being in a relationship with man with ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperact

This is not my sob story; this is his success story.

Loving the White Liar is not your typical romance. It’s a story of a girl who’s looking for love and a man who never thought he would truly find it.

Hilary is ready to start her life, she’s ready for a change. A new job, a real relationship, and she’s on the right path to get there. She put her two weeks notice in at a dead end job and she’s ready to make a change. She meets a new and handsome neighbor named Jayden. Jayd

"You are it for me. You need to know that. I won't be the perfect man, ever. I won't even come close, but for you I'll fight hard to be. I have all this shit going on in my head twenty-four/seven. It never ends. It's incessant and can turn me into a ticking time bomb, and I won't let you be a casualty."

”He can be intense, hard to handle, but he’s worth it…”

[image error]

I’m a total sucker for the stories about heroes who fight conditions. Jayden Monroe is a hero that for me is placed right along with the likes of Colton from Puddle Jumping and Clayton Reed from Find You in the Dark. Kate Stewart’s writing was witty, super sexy and heartwarming. She presented the condition of ADHD with realism and our heroine with just the right amounts of snark and lovability.

I'm a big fan of Kate Stewart's and have thoroughly enjoyed any of her books that I've read. I knew going in that this one was different and again a departure from her other works...I truly don't think she has a 'norm' when it comes to writing and it's that complexity and versatility that I love. She blows me away every time.

Loving the White Liar is a poignant and passionate read that left me overflowing with emotions.

Loving the White Liar is not a cookie cutter romance. It's not an easy love story, filled with sunshine and rainbows. This is the story of a young woman falling in love with a man with ADHD. It doesn't seem to be much of an issue at first, but as things progress, Hilary comes to realize the extent of Jayden's ADHD. And it's not always pretty. Will their relationship be able to handle the ups and downs?

3.5 to 4 stars - echoing Sharon's review here.
Wish I could give half a star here.

I enjoyed this one - the second half was better for me.

With the internet, I feel that Hilary should have done more research on ADHD - it's out there with"one click" so the fact that she got very frustrated in the relationship sort of annoyed me.

A well written story but maybe the fact that it had so many 5 star reviews written before I started it blurred my vision a bit and I was expecting more.

Loved the epilogue.

Confessions...I read books...a lot of books, and sometimes I have the very bad habit of thinking every medical and mental illness I read about, I've got. After reading Loving the White Liar I think I've got ADHD.

- SOCIAL CUES - I sometimes say the wrong things in public
- HYPER FOCUS - I am addicted to reading too much that life goes on without me
- IMPULSE CONTROL - I have been known to buy things I don't need e.g. shoes and clothes

Man the FEELS in this book...


I really liked this one. Both characters were awesome. I really felt for both of them, though I will admit a lot of the time it felt like Hilary was the one always having to be the bigger person and forgive Jayden's hurtful words and actions. Of course I understood the ADHD aspect and was sympathetic to that, still, at times it felt like it was a catch-all for every bad action he took.

Overall though this was a really good book and I am glad I had a chance to read it
Loving the White Liar and It Ends with Us are two of the most emotionally draining books I've ever read and I think Stewart handled it respectfully and with compassion. I will be re-reading this often.

I'm glad I trusted my GR friends and read this one because Hilary and Jayden has such an exceptional journey that kept me up all night long.

Loving the White Liar is such a touching and moving read. Although the main focus is on the subject of ADHD and how it affect the relationship between the couple, it also a story that is full of humor, sense of family/friendship and learning the meaning of unconditional love.

When I'd gotten a message from Kate Stewart asking if I'd be interested in reading her newest novel, I did a little research. The blurb promised me a love story with a flawed hero and a heroine that wants to tell her story....not for sympathy, but for a chance to tell her happily ever after under the most trying of circumstances. She promised me angst and with that one word, I dove in immediately. One of the BEST book decisions I've made in a while.

What a beautiful story! I love when an author challenges you to think. This story will definitely challenge you to re-examine your thoughts on acceptance, understanding and loving.

On the surface this may seem like a simple romance - a nice little story about a girl who falls in love with a boy. who just happens to have ADHD - they learn to live and love together ... BUT the only thing simple about this book is how easy it was to love it ... Just like Jayden's ADHD, there is so much more u

This will be short and sweet.

I just added this one to my TBR just a couple of weeks ago. Reviews had been popping up on my feed and it sounded like something I'd enjoy reading, a story that would tug at my heart.

And it did. Hilary and Jayden's story was sweet, tender and inspiring.

Loving someone can be one of the easiest things you do. But when you fall in love with a man who has a disorder, one that you don't completely understand, that love will be challenged in a way you never

It's just like me to not be able to get into a book everyone else loved. So, I decided to dnf so that I can avoid rating it.:)

I have read a lot of self published stuff since I've been on goodreads, so I am used to reading books that aren't perfectly edited. I can read right over typos most of the time, but this book had a lot of awkward sentences ect, that I found to be distracting. Also, my pet peeves ended up getting the best of me.

If I need a good dramatic book, then I hit up one Kate Stewart reads because I know I’m going to get an epic tale. This will be an audio review of Loving the White Liar.

I love audio books. I love dramatic and emotional audio books even more because of all the feels I get. This is my first Kate Stewart audio book and she nailed it with the narrator. I usually go for the feminine voice, but Hilary is strong and feisty and she needed a little gruff. No, the narrator

This was not what I expected. AT ALL. And I love that. I love books that surprise me. Books that prove me wrong. Books that blows my mind away. Books get the pointe. Anyways, can I just say..

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a psychiatric disorder characterized by problems about paying attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behavior which is not appropriate for a person's age.

Naturally, his mood changes, his temper tantrums, the white lies he tells and his obsessive compulsive behavior (OCD) create situations hard to cope

It definitely is different from the other books I've read by her but it still has that touch that only Kate knows how to do.
