#ReleaseBlitz #FreeInKindleUnlimited ~~ The Truth About Tomorrow by B. Celeste
Genre: Taboo Forbidden Romance/Age Gap
Charlie Tucker lost both parents to drugs. Then bounced from one bad foster home situation to another. Until River and Everett adopt her. They gave her solace, a home, and unconditional love. Yet the past haunts her. The fear shows up in horrific night terrors and the anger at the most unfortunate times. Music, Ollie, her adoptive parents – these are her loves.
Oliver James has lead a charmed life. Successful in every conventional way but something undefinable is just out of his reach. He loves his sister, his best friend, and his adoptive niece. The 15 year age difference between Charlie and Everett is irrelevant when they are together.
The chemistry between them was ALWAYS there. When Charlie goes to live with Ollie in Chicago for school everything shifts in ways that neither saw coming. Cheese and crackers! The angst level was YAY high. I’d never read a book by B. Celeste but let me tell you that I was so into The Truth About Tomorrow! I could not put it down.
Lines are crossed in their relationship. I don’t think it’s a spoiler when I say that there is sex involved. It was hot but then I felt kinda dirty because it’s somewhat taboo and the big age difference between them. By that same token, I saw this coming – there is no way this wasn’t going to happen. Then the revelations, the shock, the pain and the expected fallout.
At this part of the book is where the writing shines in my humble opinion. My heart in my throat….I read line after line. Alternatively crying and smiling with my emotions all over the place. I relished it all to the last word.

freeze as I caress the marred flesh. They’re rougher than the rest of her hand,
but part of her nonetheless.
Neither of us says a thing or moves an inch. We just remain touching, staring,
being there in one another’s company.
