Shane’s Truth – V.F. Mason

Falling in love was never part of the plan… 

Serena is the daughter of a mogul millionaire. 
New York Heiress. 
Lover of the finer things and spoiled since birth. 
But with dreams of becoming a designer slipping through her hands after a minor mishap. 
Her father ships her off to Texas, to make her appreciate, the lifestyle she takes for granted. Can she handle living in the south, to right her wrongs, to pursue her dreams? 

Living carelessly through life to dull my pain, I didn’t pay attention to my father’s threats. 
When he had issued an ultimatum after yet another stunt, I thought he was joking. 
Either work on the ranch in the middle of nowhere for the entire summer or lose any chance of making it as a fashion designer… 
I had no choice but to agree. 
Determined to follow my dreams, I traveled to Texas with one goal in mind: to prove my father wrong. 
However, with all my planning, I didn’t consider one thing. 

Leaving everything behind, I came here one year ago to find out the truth. 
But I never expected for it to destroy so many lives. 
Leaving in the aftermath, I struggled to find myself in this new world I had created… 
Until she showed up, bringing more added chaos with herself than it was humanly possible. 
Every part of me wanted to claim her, but succumbing to those desires was a big mistake. 
We didn’t belong with each other, and I couldn’t help but feel she was hiding something. 
But when did I listen to what was best?

I’d like to thank The Next Step PR for sending me an earc of this book it is very much appreciated! This was the first novel I have read from V.F. Mason and I was really intrigued by this novel! It was such brilliant writing I found it so easy to read and it was amazing.

I loved the building of the relationship we had between Shane and Serena’s relationship, and I did fall in love with both characters. I loved how it did start with friendship and then it went into more and how he felt possessive over her when it came to other people on the ranch. I liked how she changed from the spoilt girl that arrived at the ranch to someone who became caring and that it wasn’t all about her. Being at the ranch also helped her deal with her mother’s death, a big part of my favourite thing in the novel was the flashbacks of painting we had with her mum. I loved how fleshed about both characters were and that includes all side characters in the novel. Her character growth is shown even more when Serena finally accepts her dad’s partner.

I think it was great with Shane dealing with his past and his anger, he also hated lying at the beginning of the novel due to him being lied to in terms of his family. It was great when he finally dealt with his past but I also felt he had a slight over reaction when he learnt who Serena was and I was a little that’s very drama queen-y.

All the characters had character development and I honestly loved it, and I feel like it had a lot to do with the writing also. It was a fun, sexy flirty read and I loved it! I will definitely be coming back to read more books by this author!
