Author: Ruthie Knox
Summary: May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. Just weeks after moving from Wisconsin to Manhattan, she receives the world’s worst marriage proposal, stabs her boyfriend with a shrimp fork in a very public venue, and accidentally becomes notorious. And that’s before she gets mugged.
At her wit’s end, May washes up at a Packers bar in Greenwich Village, where she meets a surly, unhelpful guy who hates her shoes and calls her ex a douche.
His name is Ben. He used to be a chef. Now he’s a rooftop beekeeper with anger management issues. She wouldn’t even like him, but he reminds her of home … and he knows where to find all the best food in the Village.
She makes him laugh. He buys her tacos and cowboy boots. The longer they’re stuck together, the better May and Ben get along … and the harder they fall. TRULY is a quirky, modern New York love story unlike any you’ve read before. – Goodreads
My Thoughts: This book was graciously provided to me through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book was so much more than a romance filled with lovable characters and cute moments, this book had heart! It oozed heart!!
I loved the journey that May goes on through this. It’s self discovery and learning to break past what others have told you and that you have told yourself. May is easy to fall in love with! It was easy to understand her struggles, she was relate-able!
Even Ben, though he seemed so rough and angry at the start as you learned more about his past and struggles he become so much more complex. He was that stereotypical alpha male with a chip on his shoulders with trust issues.
I cannot wait to read more from Ruthie. (Interesting tid-bit Robin York is her pen-name for her New Adult books, one of which I’ve read a loved Deeper.)
