Interesting Story

This was a very interesting story. Will probably have to read it again to get a better understanding of the time lines. Definitely missing Jakobi as the male narrator.

Truth is the Truth

This short by Alexandria House was a mysterious yet tantalizing tale of Claudette and Truth. They are both from the rough side of the tracks. Whereas Claudette is unable to escape, Truth becomes extremely successful and even more so under his father-in-law’s tutelage.

They met through a mutual friend - one that Claudette is dating and is friends with Truth and the sparks are immediate. Both know they are with the wrong people already. The issue is they realize they are perfect for each other.

Forced to walk away, the story picks up with Truth coming back in town, and this time he’s ready and coming for what should’ve been...his Claudette. This book bae is also coming for readers hearts because Truth is the TRUTH.

Where is the rest of it

I want to know more about these two. This was a cliff hanger. It really feels like there should be a whole lot more than what was there even though I know it was a short story.

Nice Urban Read

An urban rags to riches love story in a sense. I think it is a cute short story.

Trigger warning: domestic violence is mentioned, very short.

Short story

Great read!! Glad she got her happy ending. It's always the ones that people least expect that end up making it to the top!
