Release Blitz with Review: The Truest Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #4) by Samantha Young

Posted on

She made him believe in the legend…

The Truest Thing, Book Four in the USA Today bestselling Hart’s Boardwalk Series by Samantha Young, is live!

Nine years ago, Emery Saunders moved to Hartwell to start her life over as a bookstore owner. Her inability to trust people made it hard for her to find a place in the small community until Jessica Lawson moved to town and befriended the shy beauty.

But there was one person in Hartwell who tried to befriend Emery long before Jessica arrived…

Jack Devlin has his secrets. One of them is that he fell hard for Emery the moment she appeared in Hartwell. Another is that his father blackmailed him into covering up a dark family tragedy. It forced Jack to sever his relationships to protect the people he cared about. Yet, staying away from Emery has not been easy throughout the years and he hasn’t always succeeded. When Jack’s mixed signals hurt Emery once again, she puts him out of her heart for good.

Until the Devlin family secret is finally revealed, freeing Jack from his father’s machinations. What Jack wants more than anything is to repair his relationships, starting with Emery.

However, Emery isn’t ready to forgive and Jack’s not ready to give up.

And when the town’s latest scandal ties Jack and Emery together, Jack is not above using their new reality to prove to Emery once and for all that their love is worthy of the legend of Hart’s Boardwalk.

“I’ve known from the moment I talked to Jack Devlin that his kiss would be the kind I’d waited for my entire life.” “You’re every contradiction under the sun…and I can’t stop thinking about you.”
The Truest Thing follows the epic love story of Jack and Emery. When Emery moved to Hartwell 9 years ago, she was looking for a fresh start and for the opportunity to make her dreams come true. The one thing she didn’t plan for was Jack. Not only is Jack a ladies man, but he’s a man filled with secrets. These secrets will force Jack to pay the ultimate price and give up any hope of winning Emery’s heart….For 9 years, Jack and Emery try to fight the feelings they feel towards each other. It always seems the moment they take a step forward, life makes them take leaps back. Will Jack ever be able to break free from the secrets that hold him hostage? Will Emery and Jack finally get their chance? There’s only one way to find out… The Truest Thing is the fourth book in the Hart’s Boardwalk Series and it sucks you in from the very first page. From the very first encounter of Jack & Emery, I just knew their story was going to be special and that it was going to take my emotions for a wild ride. And man did this book ever deliver! When we first meet up with our two main characters, the sparks are instant. They have a little slow-burn vibe going on, but you can tell these two are destined for more. As the years go by, it just never was the right time for Jack and Emery. Emery was so painfully shy and wasn’t at all prepared to handle a guy like Jack. And Jack, well he had a good heart and it was in the right place, but man, did he make some terrible decisions. He made me absolutely crazy!! Again, I knew he was doing what he thought was right, but that didn’t stop me from wanting to reach through my kindle and slap him! As you’ve might have guessed, Emery and Jack’s road to happily ever after was not an easy one at all. They had 9 years of mixed signals and scorching hot foreplay. I loved all the will they/won’t they moments. The push and pull between Jack and Emery was off the charts and it kept me coming back for more. Their struggles pulled at my heart and left me hanging on each and every word. The Truest Thing is a story of redemption and second chances. It’s a story of secrets and friendships. It’s a story of forgiveness and unforgettable love. It’s a story that will make you rage and consume you and hopefully, make you fall head over heels for all of the characters. The Truest Thing was a terrific read from beginning to end and I just enjoyed every single moment of Jack and Emery’s story. I think this book is a wonderful addition to the Hart’s Boardwalk series and I look forward to the next adventure this author has in store for us.
