The Truth About Us
Series: Bryant Family #1
Author: R.C. Stephens
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 7, 2019


Griffin Campbell was the typical bad boy. My father warned me not to get too close. But he’s handsome as hell with eyes the color of the ocean, and he’s fiercely loyal and loves unconditionally. I couldn’t stay away when he was the only boy to ever claim my heart. I gave him all my firsts . . . and he left me behind.

Ten years later, he’s returned home offering answers as to why he left because he wants me back—only I’m not the broken-hearted teenager he once fell for. His pretty eyes and killer muscles aren’t enough to mend the hurt that rages inside me. 


Jolie Bryant was my best friend’s little sister. She’s sexy as hell, sweet as sin, and very forbidden—my favorite memory and my biggest regret.

I should stay away. I’m harboring secrets that will shatter her world.

The thing about secrets is that they always find a way to come out. I just hope that when mine do, she won’t turn away from me . . .

I want my second chance with the only girl I’ve ever loved, but it seems that fate has other plans.

I throw my head back, laughing and happy that playful Jojo is back. “I remember the first time we kissed,” I say, looking into her eyes. She swallows. Her earlier playfulness falls away and is replaced with a serious, heated stare. “I remember the first time we danced.” My finger caresses the bare skin of her shoulder, and her green eyes go from shining emerald to a dark forest green. 

“Griff,” she whispers a warning. 

“I want to kiss you so bad.” My voice is gruff and filled with a need that far outweighs any craving for gelato. I don’t wait for her answer because the way she watches me has me undone. 

My lips press to hers slowly, a soft caress, a begging for permission. Her fingers come up and rake through my hair, tugging me closer. My tongue peeks from my mouth, begging entrance to hers as she opens willingly. 

The kiss is slow and testing at first. I’m scared of pushing too hard and having her pull away. She says she doesn’t want more, but the chemistry between us beats alive and strong. Her taste sets my body on fire as a million memories come crashing through my mind. Electricity sparks inside me, making me feel alive for the first time in what feels like forever. And now, with a simple kiss, I have come undone. My lonely heart beats in time with hers. My thumb brushes over the pulse point in her neck, and it thumps wild like mine.

“Jolie,” I say her name like a prayer. 

“What are we doing?” she murmurs into my mouth. 

“What feels right,” I answer into hers. Primal instinct begs me to take her on this kitchen counter and make her mine. My fingers pull at her scalp and she moans into my mouth, and my hard-on pulses to her sweet noises. The kiss intensifies until we are both breathless and panting when suddenly, she pulls away from me, pressing her hands to my shoulders.

Griffin and Jolie have history, the kind that stings every time it wanders into their mind, or the other's name is mentioned in conversation. Growing up Jolie always had a thing for her brother's best friend Griffin, but being that he was older, and well off limits, she tried her best to keep her crush under-wraps. That is until her senior year of high school, by then the crush had festered into a full blown addiction, and she knew what they had was something worth holding onto, so she made her move... and the outcome was epic. That is until he walked away after without so much as a goodbye...

Ten years have passed, and she has only kept tabs on him through her brother and the occasional update from her mother, but when a death in the family brings them both home things are destined to get a little tense... and maybe even a little hot too!

The Truth About Us is an emotionally rich tale that'll have your emotions in shambles, and your feeling like it is in a vise. Nothing hurts quite the loss of real and true love, and Griffin and Jolie will prove that to you page after page, these two reeked havoc on my heart! Once they let go of the hurt and anger from the past, and started to fall for each other all over again my heart began to soar and my feelings began to reach a happier place. I loved watching the progression of their relationship, them start to work through the hurt, learn to forgive on another, and embrace all the sparks they had bouncing around between them... it was a beautiful thing to witness. If you are in the mood for a toe-curling and highly emotional literary escape look no further, because The Truth About Us has everything you crave... and more! Highly recommend!!
