Overall Opinion: This was a little less than "just ok" for me. I didn't feel the connection between the characters, and I didn't really connect to the characters themselves either. I hate when a mc intentionally keeps a secret from the other, especially when it could impact someone else (like the H's daughter) -- and the h does that here. It didn't help me like her at all, and I just became frustrated with the dramatics that it causes. The love was pretty instalove IMO (which I'm also

This book is a clean romance. Its too vanilla. There is a plot but it does not have so many complex layers on it. There are some drugs abuse issue on heroine's past. There are a lot of steamy sex scenes. But what really stole my attention is the meet cute between Lennon and Noah. And I do agree that Noah is suppose to be sweet, swoony name for a hero. But instead we have a little dark, sexy, brooding hero.

Noah is a single father. He was burned once with his ex lover in the past. He swore off ro

The Truth About Lennon
K.L. Grayson

Running away from the scandal, gossips, glitz and glamour and endless BS in her life, Lennon Barrick St. James was happy to go to Texas and lay low for a while. She thought it would be temporary until love came crashing down on her, literally (she buldozed Noah on their first meet).

Noah Cunningham, a single parent has serious relationship issues because of his former lover. But Lennon broke down any walls that he built and she also managed to snag his

I don’t normally read romance books when one of the main characters is a single parent. But I’m kind of glad I gave this book a chance.
I really liked Lennon, she was sweet and nice. I didn’t care much for Noah, honestly.
This is such a sweet story. It takes off in the very beginning and moves at a very quick pace. I enjoyed these characters immensely!

Noah can pretty much be summed up in one word, WOW. Not kidding this guy is amazing. Too sexy for words, hard working, single dad and as sweet as the day is long. Dear lord he's my kryptonite!

Lennon is a tad more complex. She's leaving her charmed (or not so charmed) life behind to avoid hindering her Dads campaign but also to gain some clarity. She needs the separ

I was amazed by how fast this book took over my thoughts and feelings, and I didn’t realize just how much I really loved it until I reached the end. This story is everything a reader hopes for and has all the feel-goods included when the uptown girl crashes into small town Texas hunk. And it’s sure to put a smile on your face.

The book blurb gives readers a perfect glimpse of what's behind the cover. I’ll not spoil the rest of your fun.

Second chances at love really do happen. But things don’t a

This is a fun, lighthearted, humorous love story between opposites with just enough emotional turmoil and angst to keep you interested.

Lennon Barrick-St. James has left her life as a New York socialite to get away from bad press and to decompress in small town, Heaven Texas. She runs into Noah Cunningham as soon as she comes into town and their "meet cute" is not so cute nor are his initial reaction to her. He's the King of mixed signals. There is a lot of push and pull until he finally admits

This was a sweet and steamy single dad romance. There is quite a bit of instalove between our hero and heroine, but they have great chemistry which made for some very sexy times. Noah was an incredible father, who always put his daughter's happiness and well being above anyone elses. As we learn about his past, it becomes clear why he is so resistant to relationships and opening up his heart again. He does overreact and make some poor decisions, but he truly believes it is for the best.

I really loved this book and couldn't put it down. Lennon Barrick-St. James made headlines in NY and embarrassed her VP running dad. Now she flees to a small town in Texas called Heaven and it is here where she finds her heaven and also, Noah Cunningham. After almost mowing him down while he was on his motorcycle, lying that she was his fiancee to see him in the hospital and coming to care for him in his injured state she learns he is also her new neighbor.

This is a sweet, fun, small town Texas meets socialite New York read, as Lennon has left the city in order to keep her head down and let a media storm blow over. She is used to being watched, but isn’t used to having mistakes plastered across the news, nor is her politician father happy with her choices. A small town seems like the perfect place to hide until someone else steps into the media’s attention. She was planning to avoid men and keep her head down, and wasn’t expecting to run into (nea ...more

Don't you love when your first read by a new to you author is a fabulous read? This is of course a huge kudos to Grayson as my genres of choice range from mafia to dark!

How could I not love this story? Lennon is such a strong heroine and Noah complement her in every way! I absolutely love how they meet! Who in tarnation does THAT??!!! LOL! From that moment I knew this couple would give me "feels" I rarely admit to...at least publicly!

I highly recommend this story. It's definitely a "must finish

When I'm in the mood for a lighter book with lots of romance, KL Grayson is a go to for me. So I wasn't surprised that that's what I got with The Truth About Lennon.

Lennon is escaping a difficult situation at home, and finds herself in Heaven, Texas, where she meets- after a little mishap- Noah Cunningham. Noah is trying to raise his daughter, and doesn't have the time or energy to invest in any sort of relationship. But sometimes those are the best kinds.

Noah and Lennon are great for each oth

KL is one of my favorite authors so it wasn't a surprise that she made me fall in love with her characters yet again. She writes the most relatable and lovable book boyfriends and heroines.

The relationship between Noah and Nova was my favorite part! They captured my heart from the minute they were introduced.

If you are looking for your next book boyfriend, look no further. Noah is it! Hot, hot, hot!!!

KL, you have a gift! I look forward to every piece of work you put out into the book universe

I was fortunate enough to receive an early copy of this book and I can very easily say it is one of the best I have read in recent months.

A great contemporary romance story that made me laugh and cry and stay up till 3am to finish.

Beautifully written, easy to read and hard to put down.

With a strong heroine, a swoons hero and great supporting characters, KL has knocked it out of the park with this one!

Big City Socialite meets small town mechanic.
Lennon is taking some much needed time away and laying low from the drama in her high profile life. She escapes to Heaven, Texas where she accidentally runs brooding, sexy Noah Cunningham off the road. Lennon feels horrible and goes out of her way to try to make things up to Noah. There's an instant attraction from the beginning but Noah's walls are up high from being burned from a previous relationship and left to raise his daughter alone. He's bound

So Sweet!

Lennon St. James and Noah Cunningham meet in a pretty unconventional way. I love a story that can make me laugh and swoon right from the start.

Lennon has been handed a bad deal. I love her spunkiness, sass and resilience. She’s fighting for her place in the world.

Noah doesn’t trust especially not women. He is moody and grumpy and downright mean at times but very sexy. His best quality is his devotion to his daughter, Nova. She is a cutie.

Charlotte is the best friend every woman needs

I've read KL from book one. I fell in love with her writing immediately! I have to say this is her best book to date! I'm in love with Lennon and Noah! Noah is everything and I mean everything we want in a man! He is going to be your next BBF!!

Lennon and Noah meet by accident and try out the friends deal. The both realize that friends won't do. They have chemistry that we all want to see in our own relationships.

I am in love with this book! And I hope we get a little more of them and a boo wit

Despite the almost insta-love and the quick feelings this book is probably one of the sweetest romances I have read in a long time. I've had many disappointments in this genre recently and was about to give up on it altogether until I found this.

Lennon is simply adorable. She is kind hearted, a bit naive, but ultimately sweet. Noah is equally as kind and a protective single dad of a lovely daughter. Noah is a regular mechanic while Lennon is holding back the truth of who she is and who her very

Omg! This was my first book by this author and it was so beautifully written. I was hooked from the beginning . I immediately fell in love with Lennon, Noah and Nova. Actually all the characters were amazing. Lennon hides a little secret from Noah about who she really is. Will it ruin their relationship or is their relationship strong enough to endure it and move on? Beautiful, steamy, amazing characters, wonderful story line.

The Truth About Lennon is a beautiful love story with a bit of angst. Secrets revealed splashdown on the narrative creating a mix of vibes. Character's are compelling and loveable, except for Lennon's mom. I adored Noah's daughter Nova and Noah's determination to put his daughter first and foremost above himself and others. The writing style is engaging.

I pretty sure I have yet to read a KL Grayson book I have not loved. Her writing in this book was so good. The feels you get from the way her characters interact, the chemistry that is dripping from each page, and the love story that you will read is outright AMAZING.

I loved everything about this book. Beginning , Middle and End! It was perfect and will probably end up on the top of my must read list of 2017! It is that great.
