Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: February 21, 2013
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Ashley wants to smash everything in her once-perfect life.

Charlotte wants to walk in Ashley's seemingly charmed shoes.
Colt wants to turn Smalltown USA on its ear--with Ashley at his side.
Jordan wants to follow his heart... but Ashley is the one sacrifice he never expected to make.

Ashley Lockett has always followed the rules. She's always done the right thing, played it safe, gone to church. And then her ideal life is shattered when her dad dies suddenly.

Fueled by anger and grief, she vows to do everything opposite of how she lived before. She rejects safety, rules, faith,

and then she meets Jordan.

Jordan has big dreams, he's had a crush on Ashley for years, and he's a great kisser. But he's also safe.

Enter Colt. He is not safe, and he's more than willing to help Ashley fulfill her vow.


My Review:
The Truth About Letting Go is the sequel to The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore, however you don't need to read them in order as each book stands alone. This story takes place in the same location as the first, and I love how the creek is still an important area even though we have new characters. I would definitely go there to escape too. Ashley is very real and believable as a character. She is grieving over the loss of her father, and she is angry. So, she tries to escape his memory and her feelings by becoming the opposite of who she was when her father was alive. Jordan wants to take care of her. He is such a sweetheart, and I loved him from the start. Colt is, of course, the bad boy. I normally like the bad boys the most, and in the beginning I liked Colt too, but he quickly lost my favor. Jordan and Colt are like the angel and devil on her shoulder, and right now she wants to listen to the devil because he helps her mask the pain. I really like how the story touches on God and faith, and it does so without being preachy. With such a big loss like this, everyone questions their faith. No matter what you believe, everyone wonders why. Ashley's thoughts, and feelings, and even how she reacts to and copes with such a loss feels very real. The Truth About Letting Go is told beautifully. Once I picked up the book, I wasn't able to put it back down until I was finished. It simply wouldn't let me. I'm impressed by this author. Everything I've read by Leigh Talbert Moore brings me right into the worlds she creates.
