May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. Just weeks after moving from Wisconsin to Manhattan, she receives the world's worst marriage proposal, stabs her boyfriend with a shrimp fork in a very public venue, and accidentally becomes notorious. And that’s before she gets mugged.
At her wit's end, May washes up at a Packers bar in Greenwich Village, where she meets a surly, unhelpful guy who hates her shoes and calls her ex a douche.
His name is Ben. He used to be a chef. Now he's a rooftop beekeeper with anger management issues. She wouldn't even like him, but he reminds her of home … and he knows where to find all the best food in the Village.
She makes him laugh. He buys her tacos and cowboy boots. The longer they’re stuck together, the better May and Ben get along … and the harder they fall. TRULY is a quirky, modern New York love story unlike any you've read before.


****I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review****
I loved this book, Truly I did ;)
May is alone in the big bad city after embarrassing herself in front of the whole world.
She is craving home and comfort.
Ben is an angry broody character. He obviously has social issues.
However after there meeting May discovers that he reminds her of home and you can't really judge a book by its cover.
And of course he makes her lost and unappreciated heart sing ;)
Both of these characters where brilliant, even with there multitude of demons.
Their journey from strangers to more, was a treat and even though these stories can get old (romance) and you feel like you have read the same tale over and to over, this one seemed fresh, yay!
I loved Ben, he was exactly what May needed! I could feel the chemistry bouncing right off the page and nothing seemed contrived.
It has been a while since I have done a review and I am just so glad that Truly by Ruthie Knox was my first to get be back into it. She has given me that thirst to read again and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series......maybe Allie's story?

New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox writes contemporary romance that’s sexy, witty, and angsty—sometimes all three at once. Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-based romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella—both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award.
Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life. Ruthie also writes New Adult romance as Robin York. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia. She’d love to hear from you, so visit her website and drop her a line.
