Unspeakable Truths by Alice Montalvo-Tribue
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*** I Love Story Time was gifted an ARC in exchange for an honest review ***
I understand now that the story hadn’t been completely written. Tyler was a beautiful and tragic chapter in my book, but Luca…Luca was the Happily Ever After.
When I first started Unspeakable Truths, I had a hard time getting into the storyline. I'm not sure if it was because it alternates between past and present or if I just wasn't connecting with the characters. However, as the story went on, I really did enjoy it. There wasn't a lot of Tyler's character in the story, so I was not able to connect with him; therefore I really didn't connect with the pain that Everly was dealing with when it came to her struggles with moving forward after his death. However, I was able to connect with Luca, and to be honest, he was a big part of why I liked this story so much! I really liked his character! I felt bad for him when I found out the truth about why he always treated Everly the way he did. I really wish that he wouldn't have given up so easily when it came to her in the beginning. But I do understand that it's not always the right "time" for two people to be together. I loved that Luca always pushed Everly to move forward. I believe that Luca truly helped Everly find the person she was meant to be. Their relationship was sweet, but also very hot! Luca was the alpha male Everly never knew she needed. The things that Luca would say had me wanting to listen to him...
“Good, I’m going to fuck the shit out of you. I’m not going to be gentle, and I’m not going to be slow, and if you’re lucky I’ll let you come. Then and only then will we talk about what happens next. Say okay Luca.”
Yup! I'm pretty sure I said.. Okay Luca, at the same time Everly did!! Lol. I also loved the playful side of Luca. He loved to joke and would always make me laugh...
“Oh. My. God,” I whisper as Luca silently laughs. “This isn’t funny,” I hiss, smacking him on his bare shoulder. “We just got caught by my mom having sex.”
“We weren’t having sex babe, I was playing with your pussy. There’s a difference.”
I busted up at that part because that response was so Luca. So literal! I loved it! In the end, I really did enjoy this story. The only reason that I didn't rate this story a 5 star is because I'm not a fan of alternating past/present storylines and I didn't cry. Other than those two things, I really enjoyed Unspeakable Truths and I would definitely recommend it to a fellow reader!
