Nine years to win her. Three years to love her. And one decision that destroyed it all.
April Duncan was raised with three clear truths: the family name is absolute, ambition and success rule over every emotion, and love always comes with strings attached. Image was everything in her carefully crafted world… until the mirror cracked.
Sean Taylor was April’s best friend, the one man who taught her it was okay to let her guard down and to rely on someone. She trusted him. She loved him. Which made his deception the darkest kind of cruelty.
Now, nearly a year later, she’s ready to leave her failed engagement in the past and get back her life and her estranged family, even if it means dating a man solely for his connections. She’ll never again choose love over loyalty.
Sean has spent his entire life breaking barriers, facing challenges, and never giving up. Until one impossible choice destroyed his future and left him no option but to flee from the woman who annihilated his heart.
Now he’s back in Bentwood and determined to make her hear the truth and rebuild the trust he shattered. But April has become a mere shell of the woman who claimed his heart long ago.
Winning her back is more than just seizing a victory, because if he fails… the girl he’s loved for a lifetime will disappear forever.
The Truth Between Us is the second book in the Bentwood series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but it is recommended that you begin with book one to get the full experience among this tight group of family and friends.
The second book in Tammy Gray’s Bentwood series, and it was just as attention-grabbing as the first!
This one has April as the main character, and I was completely hooked into her and her life!
I was enthralled and captivated by her story, her character. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster–I was convinced April was heading down the wrong path, she seemed destined to make the wrong choices! So much of her life had been about making everything picture-perfect in her life. Her parents demand perfection. But is this what she really wants for her life?
Ms. Gray skillfully wove life lessons, and much truth, into this story line. We need to let go of who we think others are demanding us to be, and look for the person God wants us to be.
Sean is such an amazing hero in this story. The love he offers April is truly a godly love.
But is she willing to take his love if it means losing her family?
One other thing I wanted to add….I was given an ecopy to read, from the author…and I was so honored as to have my name, along with part of the review I wrote, in this book (If you get the chance to read this book, be sure and look at the very first page ;)! I told my family that my name is now ‘in print’ even though I haven’t written a book. I count it such an honor to be given this privilege of reviewing books for authors, and giving back to them in a small way for the many blessings I’ve received over the years, especially from reading Christian fiction. I have found Tammy Gray to be a talented writer and look forward to more good reads from her!!

March 8th 2018
RITA Award-winning author Tammy L. Gray delivers an unforgettable new series following five struggling friends in search of the true meaning of family through secrets, betrayal and the unexpected influence of an outsider…
Tyler Mitchell grew up an orphan, taken in by his best friend’s family when he was only sixteen. Even though ten years have passed, and he’s been given everything he should ever want—a loving home, an adoring girlfriend, a successful career, and lifelong friendships—Tyler has always felt a foreigner in his own life.
When a surprising phone call reveals the death of his biological grandfather, Tyler’s seemingly perfect life starts to unravel. The people he loves most in world have kept from him the greatest secret of all—knowledge of his father’s family.
Now hunting for more information about his past, Tyler discovers nothing is quite as it seems. And the definition of family is far more complicated than choosing between blood and loyalty.
