WLK synopsis
People pleaser Ben Forman has been in the closet so long he has almost convinced himself he is straight, but his denial train gets derailed when hotshot lawyer Micah Trains walks into his life. Micah is brilliant, funny, driven...and he assumes Ben is gay and starts dating him. Finding himself truly happy for the first time, Ben doesn't have the willpower to resist Micah's affection.
When his relationship with Micah heats up, Ben realizes he has a problem: His parents won't tolerate a gay son, and self-confident Micah isn't the type to hide. If Ben wants to maintain his hold on his happiness, he'll have to decide what's important and own up to the truth of who he is. The trouble is figuring out just what that truth is.

Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever- after sunset.
Cardeno's Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, "You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day."

My  Just What the Truth Is Review . . .

This was my first CC story that I had wished I had previously listened or read book 1, Home Again within this series.  I think it would have made the story even better having a back story of Ben's interactions with his bother Noah and his old friend Carter and their family dynamics.  Even though I didn't have that I still adored the book.

The way it's written as if Ben is talking to the listener/reader totally makes the story in the audio version.  You know from the first line that it's going to be good and are intrigued to see how Ben coming out is going to unfold.

As we listen from Ben's POV we get to see his great and very bad choices on this new transition in life.  For Ben he has been conditioned to believe a certain way, especially when his brother Noah came out.  His parents did not handle this news well, which caused Ben to overcompensate and be miserable as he had to hide a piece of himself.

Ben was able to hide that part of himself until Micah Trains walked into his office as a fellow partner of the firm.  He tries to talk himself into being straight but he can't when it comes to Micah.  But you know its going to be a bumpy ride when Ben doesn't tell Micah the truth, but how could he when he won't admit the truth to himself.

As Ben comes more to terms with his truth he falls more and more for Micah, but also has more conflict with himself and his parent's beliefs.  Once Ben gets his head out his ass and gives in to his truth, the story morphs into an adorably sweet yet still spicy love story. Adored it!!

This was such a sweet coming out story and Micah and Ben are adorable together.  The story deals with some tougher situations about why Ben is in the closet and his internal struggle but the journey was a bumpy one but worth it in the end for these two.

4 Follow your inner truth thumbs up!
