From bestselling author Leddy Harper comes a sizzling romance about an aspiring young chef who may discover that the perfect recipe for love involves all accidental ingredients…

Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé’s restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she’s moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she’s in a relationship with her best friend’s superhot cousin. There’s just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they’re already “dating.”

Jason’s a recovering ladies’ man who shouldn’t be on the menu, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to Tatum’s quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can’t hurt. But as Tatum’s forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what’s real and what’s fake—including her feelings for Jason.

With too many tales spun, Tatum can only watch in horror as her collection of yarns begins to unravel, leaving everyone she cares about feeling betrayed. After so many lies, will it be too late to set the record straight? And more importantly, will she be able to convince Jason there’s truth in their love?

I haven't read Leddy Harper before, but The (Half) Truth sounded like quite the entertaining read! Although the book started with a sad and heartbreaking moment for Tatum, I was looking forward to seeing her grow her wings and find happiness once again.

What a character Tatum was! She would always get herself into awkward situations that would have you both cringing and laughing! She had a heart of gold though, but one little lie led her into a fair bit of trouble! I really enjoyed meeting Jason and see the spark back in his eyes after his move back to his home town. I could see that he had a connection with Tatum and they genuinely liked spending time together.

I liked that Tatum was close to Jason's family, and her best friend was actually Jason's cousin. Although Jason was a bit older than some of his cousins, he worked hard to show that he was not the same boy that he had been in high school.

I thought that this was a fun read and I was quite surprised as to how much I enjoyed it. I liked how Leddy Harper introduced the characters and created a world that was easy to be a part of. There were a few moments that had me scratching my head, but overall it was quite a fun read. 

Hehe... this one is a little fun, it made me swoon and smile!! 😜

“But that’s not why I’m coming over.”
“If it’s not for the sexual pleasure that I offer, what other reason is there?”
“You’ve had a craptastic day.” Somewhere, an angel sang.
“Good line, but you said you wanted to get what you’ve waited all day for.”
“Oh, you want the list? All right . . . to see your smile, look into your eyes, and for the love of God, I need to kiss you before I fucking go crazy. Your lips . . . damn. I’m convinced you lace your lipstick with crack or something.”

Bestselling author Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
