Sometimes I'm in the mood to read a romantic book, a love story into which I can escape. So I picked up Truths and Roses, and was happy to discover it was just what I was looking for.
Professional football player Will Kincaid ends his career by busting his knee just as he crosses the line for a glorious win at the Superbowl. He returns to his hometown a hero, wondering what he is now going to do with his life. But when he bumps into Hannah Jacobs, the only girl who ever rejected him in high school, old feelings come alive as they learn to deal with old secrets, bad memories and the growing attraction between them.
This was a fun book that dealt with serious issues realistically, yet without too much drama. I enjoyed the plotline and the characters as they both grew and changed. Hannah was stuck in a quiet life with unfulfilled dreams and couldn't move beyond a tragic event in her past. Will's whole life had been football and it seems he couldn't get his father's approval otherwise. He needed to come to terms with his strengths and weaknesses to determine where he was now headed in life.
Together Will and Hannah help each other, but must overcome their obstacles to be able to give the best of each other in their relationship. This is the message I really liked in this story. The romance builds well without silly bodice-ripping scenes or phrases telling me how gorgeous the characters are. Yes, there are some hot kissing scenes, but they are in good taste. And the sex scene isn't explicit.
I will definitely read another of Cooper's books when I'm in the mood for a good solid romance. Recommended to lovers of romance books.
Note: This book is rated S = some sexual content, not too explicit.
