BLURB

Joshua Dawson is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. That alone should be reason enough for me to keep my distance. Add in that he’s a well mannered, loyal and hardworking artist and I should be running in the other direction.

He’s damn near perfect, and I prefer my men hard to love and easy to leave. Josh’s only flaw is he wants forever, and for the first time I might want the same. But loving someone doesn’t mean you deserve them.

He’s all I want and everything I can’t have.

Canvas…the cover! Ooh my, it’s perfectly fitting to a story dedicated to Joshua Dawson and Elle Johnson whom we met on several occasions in previous workings and includes some other favourite characters, especially a glimpse of my book boyfriend Kyle McKenzie that had me swooning all over again. That being said, I so have a secret soft spot for Josh.

Sweet dependable Josh has been harbouring some feelings for Elle for some time, but they seem to rub each other up the wrong way when they’re in one another’s presence. Joshua met Elle via his best friend Janny who he had a brief fling with, but she’s now happily married to Kyle and he knows that it was never meant to be. Josh is a very talented artist and is busy getting his tattoo parlour business off the ground. Everything in his life seems to be falling into place except for the one thing or rather… the one girl he wants, Elle. Josh is a really good guy, but I detected some hidden depths within him and was intrigued to learn about his background considering the kind of gentle soul he is.

Elle Johnson. Wow, this young lady certainly thinks so little of herself! She has equally deep feelings for Josh but is afraid that she’s not worthy of him; like she doesn’t deserve some happiness. Elle sells herself short and I think that is why she’s previously just hooked up with guys. But josh is different. He sees her and that scares Elle. She does nothing but try to push him away. Elle is hard-working, beautiful and sassy and wants Josh despite of her inner turmoil.

Will these two finally give in to their feelings and decide to give it ago? I really hoped so because the abundance of chemistry and the deep connection they have enthralled me. And I most certainly couldn’t argue that they’d make a steamy duo if they were able to pull it off. Theirs is a story overflowing with suspense and the edge of your seat curveball thrown my way simply made me think nothing about it was cut and dry. I always wondered why Elle was lacking in self-confidence; however, I got to discover the reasons when the past catches up.

Yet again, I was treated to a well-written flawless story full of romance, mystery and the steaminess in it literally bowled me over. This book isn’t just about hot scenes though. It’s so much more, giving the reader a bigger insight into the lives of Josh and Elle. The dual narrative couldn’t have been better as I like to know what each and everyone is thinking and in this story, there’s never a dull moment. The angst in Canvas is as such that at times all I wanted to do was bang their heads together; nonetheless, I had endless faith in their creator. Would the author be able to make things right in my anticipation to find out what was in store for his protagonists? Mentioned earlier, we get a to meet up with characters from other books where Elle and josh appeared briefly. Canvas can be read a standalone as it gives us a whole lot more. Mr Chance is one of my favourite authors as he manages to entertain, captivate and one thing is for sure, his storytelling got me flipping the pages!

BLURB

I used to believe in true love.
Until he broke me.
Lesson learnt.
Where there’s love, there’s lies.

I used to believe I wasn’t what she needed.
Until I let her love in.
I’ve changed for her.
I want her to believe in me like I need to believe in myself.

Isaac James stayed out of my life for five years. He wasn’t to blame, after all, protecting me imprisoned him.
Now he’s back. The chemistry is still there, the tension is still there, the love is still there… the pain is still there.
Isaac James was my rock, my first love… my family.

Olivia McKenna has always been my weakness. I’d do anything to protect her, which I proved, despite it taking me to prison.
I’ve stayed away, trying to do the right thing. I thought I was still protecting her. But, I’m lost without her… even if I’m not sure I can be what she needs.
Olivia McKenna was my forever… for always.

** This book is set in the UK. First cousin relationships are tackled within this book; please be aware those relationships are legal within the UK. **

The cover!! The designer has done wonders and the cover for Twisted Truths is more than eye catching in every sense of the word. Beautiful cover for a beautiful book. I may be a little biased here about Twisted Truth because it contains some of the author’s older characters, from books I loved. You could read this as a standalone, Maria has been clever in the way she has written those back characters into her new story. But – you’d be doing yourself a disservice. To get the most out of this book, you need to go back to the beginning, back to Love Reflection and read that first series. Maria brings you full circle with Twisted Truth, and although you won’t necessarily miss anything by not reading those early books, I honestly think you’re reading pleasure might be a little diminished if you haven’t. Still – standalone it is, and a very good one at that. Twisted Truth will bring in new readers for this author, I have no doubt.

Twisted Truth has a tinge of YA at the beginning, and they are some of my favourite chapters. Maria Macdonald encapsulated the character of Olivia perfectly. You could read the difference in tone and attitude as you read through those early chapters. I loved it, you really get a sense of Olivia’s character right from the offset. The author then moves into NA once we leave those chapters behind.

This is the complete story of Isaac and Olivia – or Via – as Isaac calls her. Twisted Truth is intense, angsty, edge of seat at times and a little bit of naughty, (okay, there’s more than a little but it’s proportionate to the plot). There’s frustration aplenty in the story as well, and not just from the characters. I think the reader will feel it too, which is not a bad thing whatsoever. This is a book you can get lost in, the pace with which Twisted Truth moves is just enough to keep the reader turning those pages and craving more. Some sensitive subjects are tackled by Maria Macdonald, done with respect I have to mention.

Character wise, Via is not your typical romance lead. She has a very definite mind of her own and it shows through most of her actions. I liked her a lot. I did need a little warming up to the adult that she became but it didn’t take long. Isaac is your alpha male with only one woman on his mind. Some of his actions needed a good flipping slap across the face, again the story dictates his actions and they are understandable. Yip, Isaac is a hottie and those people that hoard ‘book boyfriends’ will most likely take Isaac under their wing. The chemistry and sensuality between the pair is off the charts. I loved how the author showed that very distinctly. Some scenes were steamy, phew! Supporting characters fit, and moved the plot along at times. Some I liked, some I didn’t, and that’s what they are there for.

I’m not plot spoiling, in fact I haven’t really mentioned plot at all. The blurb for Twisted Truth gives you enough and I don’t want to give anyone anything. I believe you need to dive into this book and let it run, let it take you where it may. If you haven’t read this author and this is your first book from Maria Macdonald – I absolutely envy you. You are getting a cracker. I would say this is up there with her best, if not on the top. Loved it, highly recommend it!
