#BookReview: Cold Hard Truth by Anne Greenwood Brown






Synopsis:  Emmie O’Brien is a former good girl now on the fringe. She spent a crazy year involved with Nick, her mom’s drug dealer; after her arrest she was lucky to go back to her old life. But she’s haunted by the choices she made—first, to be with Nick, and then later, to testify against him. Max Shepherd is a senior varsity hockey player with serious anger issues. His grief over the death of his girlfriend causes him to see injustice wherever he looks. When they meet in community service, Max is drawn to Emmie’s calm energy, but Emmie knows better than to get too close to anyone. When friends of Nick show up seeking revenge, Emmie is forced to come to terms with her past, while Max has to control his protective instincts. They must trust one another, especially when Emmie’s situation takes a dangerous turn.

Rating: ★★
My Review: This is an older ARC that I happened to find in my stack of books. And I have to say that this wasn't what I was hoping it was going to be.  I really didnt care about the characters or the story at all.  And well it really just didnt stick with me either. 








"Brimming with passion and suspense…with a gripping plot from the beginning, Brown’s enticing novel reads from both Max’s and Emmie’s perspectives as they both slowly reveal their pasts." —Booklist


"Brown creates balance between the thriller aspects of Nick's revenge and the romance between the teens, which keeps the narrative engaging." —School Library Journal
