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 realized something wasn’t quite right.
You see, I met a man who would be anyone I needed him to be, and after I found out that fact, I knew it would be impossible to walk away. His disorder, however, would change everything I ever thought about love and what it truly meant to accept someone for who they are.
This is not my sob story; this is his success story
Christy's 5 star review!
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. Jayden seems too good to be true at first, but the more she gets to know him, she realizes he’s a little different. Jayden has ADHD. He’s open about it, and there are times she doesn’t notice, that it’s no big deal. Then there are times that it’s a very big deal. But Hilary can’t help but fall hard for Jayden. She loves him so much, and he loves her equally. Even when he’s not easy to deal with, she knows he’s worth it.
“I told you loving me wasn’t easy, Hil.”
“It’s so easy to love you, Jayden. Too easy. It’s only hard when you won’t let me.”
Hilary loved Jayden completely. She saw past his disorder, past all of his flaws and saw him. She fell in love with this damaged man and knew she couldn't live without him. She wasn’t perfect when it came to him, but she tried to be patient, loving and understanding and I loved her for it. I don’t want you to read this review and see Jayden just as this damaged man with this disorder he’s trying to manage. It’s a big part of who he is, but it isn’t all that he is. He’s a truly great man. He loves Hilary so much and whenever he has an episode, he always tries to make amends for what he’s done. He is a fantastic leading man. I love that this story showed that people aren’t perfect. Relationships aren’t perfect. You’re allowed to feel how you feel. But when you truly love some one, you accept them and love them and all the bad times are still worth it in the end.
“I’ve accepted you as you are, but I’m still allowed to be angry when I feel it, and sad and disappointed and all of those things. But they don’t amount to shit in comparison to how good we have it. We are worth it.”
I love that Kate Stewart writes out of the box romance. It's easy to write a traditional love story with a happy ever after, but a real and raw story with imperfect characters and issues all round can't be simple. What’s important is that this book shows that love isn't always easy. Sometimes it's hard. Sometimes it's messy. Sometimes it's a fight, and that's okay. As long as you're willing to fight. And both of these characters were. I love this author’s writing style. And the ending was amazing! I truly loved this story and it’s one I highly recommend!
“It’s real, and it’s happiness, and it’s love.”
