Basically, the story is gut wrenching read (at least for me). You have Jackson who has been living under his father's thumb for so long that he didn't know who he really was. Yet, when he was around Bliss, he seem to try to be a better person. That in itself made him truly afraid of Bliss, so he would say some really awful things and she would just take it. You have to understand her background, Bliss didn't grow up with a normal child. It started out normal, but then she lost her parents and ended up in foster care. So, she learn to stayed in the shadows and don't standout otherwise there was consequences. I know that all foster parents are not horrible people, because I know a few and they are great people. However, Bliss wasn't lucky. However, Jackson tried to encourage her to be more vocal and say what she wanted to say without judgement. Of course, they start to fall in love each other, but alas the road to true love always has speed bumps and detours.
First off, I love Bliss she's wonderful and I love how she learns to standup for herself. I did love how Jackson helped her get that way once he started to learn about her past. Now Jackson. Oh dear, where do I beginning. Honestly, he's a tough guy to love. He has this problem with sticking his foot in his mouth, a lot. He tries to be a good guy, but then he gets scared and he back tracks to his old habits. You know old habits are hard to break.
But the bottom line is I really did like this book. Tho it would have been easier for me if I just stuck my heart on the platter, but I did end up loving Bliss and Jackson together. Yes, they had a few issues to work on, but overall it was a good read. So, if love a story where you have an underdog heroine willing to stake her claim on superstar hero, you might enjoy True For You.
