Blog tour Truth (Finding Anna #3) by Sherri Hayes
The third installment of the Finding Anna Series.
For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring. There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.
Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer? As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on, and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known.
I love this series because those books speak about love communication and trust and respect. I love the way the author describes the relationship between the main characters and their love.The author show that an abused woman can have a relationship and she can learn to love again with the right man and with his help.Yes, they have an unconventional relationship ( BDSM) but if they are happy that way I think that is the right relationship for them.
I love Stephan because he is so patient and loving with Brianna.He is always calm with her and knows what she needs.I love Brianna because she is strong and loving and wonderful and she fight with her fears.
In this book we learn more about Brianna's father John and how she ended with Ian.Stephan wants that John to stay away from Brianna because she is afraid of him and she doesn't want him to be around her.
Brianna is more confortable with Stephan in this book and now she knows that he will not hurt her and will take care of her and he will protect her.She have two friends Lily and Jade and both understand her.She is more comfortable with people around her.
Stephan helped Brianna to face her past and to understand that she is beautiful and strong and she deserves to be happy.
From my point of view I think that Stephan and Brianna have an ideal relationship because both are happy and content with their life.
Thank you Jenny and Sherry for this arc.
Welcome back to my blog Sherri!!!!
When you are writing the two different points of view, which character flows more naturally? Which one "talks" to you more. Since Stephan is the Dominate, does he take over in the writing too?
Most of the time, Stephan is easier to write. In talking with my beta, though, she pointed out that part of that may be because Stephan is, as a character, much more talkative. He’s confident, outgoing, and has no problem communicating what he wants and needs.
Brianna, on the other hand, is shy, quiet, and has a difficult time explaining herself sometimes. That is an issue when I’m on a deadline and I need to her to tell me what she’s thinking and feeling. Occasionally, she surprises me and puts it all out there, but all too often, I’m having to drag it out of her in little bits.
There have been times, however, when it’s the complete opposite. Brianna knows what she feels and what she wants, whereas Stephan is dragging his feet. They have both caused me to want to pull my hair out from time to time.
