We all at one point or another in our lives felt like we didn’t totally belong where we were living or in the life we were living. This is how Maddie Grey feels having a life many people dream of. She spends her days in the Big Apple, emptiness filling her and the pages of her BlogSpot: Maddie as hell. If at least she could pretend her career was going the way she always planned it would; maybe it could help her feel a little more at her place, instead of wishing she was back in Australia.
To make matters worse, her new boss, Elena Bartell is a strong, powerful, driven and quite a scary leader. While many find themselves scared by Elena’s personality, it has a different effect on Maddie, pushing her curiosity to the maximum, creating a various range of weird, funny and different situations they both find themselves in.
I had a pleasant time reading The Brutal Truth by Lee Winter. Being familiar with a few of her previous writings, I can only be happy that her amazing writing style is still present in this book. The ease with which the author portrays the life of a magazine or a newspaper environment and its surroundings always make me feel as if I am standing next to them in the room.
Lee Winters is one of the few writers I look forward to reading because her books usually contain strong leading woman and their hard to please personalities, making them almost unapproachable and challenging me as a reader to see past the hard exterior we are allowed to see at first. The more I read books with this trope, the more I notice Winter’s talent in writing in this universe.
The characters are all working well together into making this story as good as it is. There isn’t much more to say about the writing because as usual, the story flows perfectly and it’s keeping the readers captivated all book long.
I was waiting for the right moment to read this book and I am happy I finally got the chance to read and review it. I recommend this book to everyone, it is a crowd pleaser and it won’t deceive.
I am looking forward to reading more of her work.
