~Book Review~ “This Much is True” by Tia Louise

My Review:

JR Dunne was jailed for a crime he didn’t commit.  He’s looking to clear his name and reclaim his life.  Hope Eternal Hill lost her new restaurant and is looking for a way to survive now that her dreams were crushed by the pandemic.  They are two strangers brought together by fate for a road trip that will tie them together forever.  Neither looking for love or romance.  But, they are drawn together by fate even as life tries to pull them apart.

This Much Is True had an expected plot.  It was a sweet romance set amongst the grit of a pandemic and JR’s troubles.  JR is broody, but has every right to be.  He’s an amazing father and just wants his son back in his life. And,  now he wants Hope as well!  Hope is a ray of sunshine.  She truly believes in the good of people and always looks for the silver lining.  She’s loving and loyal and determined and everything JR needs to help him move on from all that was stolen from him.

I also wanted to shout out JR’s brother Scout.  I adored him as a character.  A good friend and loyal brother, he’s charming and also has an amazing sense of humor.  He is definitely the  type of person you want on your side through both good and bad times and I can’t wait for his story!

This was my first “pandemic” romance and I think the author did a fabulous job of acknowledging the hardships and differences in our current reality without letting it dominate or ruin the romance between JR and Hope.  4.5 stars.


Title: This Much Is True

Author: Tia Louise

Genre: Single Dad/Opposites Attract Romance



A smart and sexy romance about a grumpy single dad on a mission of revenge, and the girl he can’t leave behind by USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise.


I blame the alcohol.

I lost my restaurant business, was forced to sell my dad’s cherished 1967 Chevy Impala, and I got a little drunk.

Now I’m waking up with the hottest, angriest guy I’ve ever seen, speeding down the highway like a bat out of hell.

Ice-blue eyes hit mine with stomach-clenching force… and he swerves onto the shoulder, ready to kick me out.

Needless to say, our romance doesn’t start out sweet.


Two years ago, I hugged my little boy goodbye and told him I’d be right back.

Next thing I knew, I was arrested and sent to prison for a crime I didn’t commit.

Until they let me out early…

Now I’m headed home to confront the man who put me away.

A lie put me behind bars, and I’m ready to find the truth.

I don’t have time for a sexy girl with pale blonde hair and bright blue eyes stowed away on the backseat of my new car.

My mission is to get my son back and clear my name.

Love is not on the agenda.

It never is, though, is it?

(THIS MUCH IS TRUE is a single-dad, opposites attract, STAND-ALONE romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)
