    1. The third five-star read in this wonderful series! This book was so intense I loved every sentence, every word. I had butterflies in my stomach all the way through to the HEA. I think Luke and Tristan had the most obstacles to overcome. But they were two more wonderful characters in this excellent series. I love Lydia Michaels for the wonderful men she writes about. Thank you so much!This series deserves to be read! To say that it's highly recommended does not nearly begin to cover it.

    2. The first 90% of the book was spent going over the past 7 years repeating what we've already come to know from previous books in the series. Because of that I was never able to fully connect with the character's story and actually believe their love was true. When we finally get to the last 10% and learn what happened after the event's that took place in the previous book Faking It, the story is rushed through until the end. 2 1/2 star read for me.

    3. Lydia Michaels YOU DID IT!Tristan and Luke I've been waiting for their story ever since I read my first McCullough Mountain book I'm speechless right now. It was everything I wanted to read (and more). I had my concerns, I'll admit as I wasn't sure if Lydia could write an M/M romance like I was hoping (my expectations were extremely high). I'm ashamed I had doubts, these are Lydia's McCullough men and she did right by them. I feel that it's so much more than just an M/M romance. So much more.Tha [...]

    4. 5 plus stars. This is my first ever MM romance, and I am blown away. I loved the heroes, and I loved their story. The author, once again, did an amazing job. I'm not one to re-read a book, but this one I will.

    5. I had my doubts going into this book. Both Luke and Tristan had aggravated me in previous books. Luke’s interaction (or lack of) with his family made me angry, and Tristan’s mixed signals where Sheilagh was concerned had me seething. But I should have known Lydia Michaels would have me loving these men by the time their story ended. She’s done that to me before. Always managing to pull me in, giving me a closer look at characters, and leaving them completely redeemed in my eyes. She is a [...]

    6. 5 Heartbreaking Stars!!!Source: eARC for Honest Review Courtesy of Author and Secret Cravings Publishing FINALLY! Throughout the whole series there has been a build up with Luke and Tristan and here we finally get to see behind their very beautiful and trying relationship. As well as this book has two of my favorite themes: friends to lovers and straight to gay. Luke is a McCullough but he was also the shining star until his knee went out with all his dreams. Now back home, he is bitter and rese [...]

    7. Original Blog Post: headouttheoven/20Forsaking Truth took almost seven years to tell. The fifth installment of the McCullough Mountain Series, this is the story of Luke McCullough and Tristan Hughes. The best friends who were reallypartners and lovers. The lovers who hid from all for fear of condemnation.Luke is an angry man. He is angry for having lost his chance of becoming the athlete he lived for. He is angry that his siblings were seemingly getting the chances he thinks he should have had b [...]

    8. Although this is book 5 in the McCullough Mountain series, Forsaking Truth can be read as a stand-alone without any confusion. That said, as someone who has read it as a stand-alone, I plan to add the previous books in the series to my reading list as the McCulloughs are a rather entertaining and delightful family and I would like to read each of the siblings’ story. In this installment in the series, we are treated to Luke’s story and his adjustment to major life changes. Destined to be a p [...]

    9. Forsaking Truth made my heart ache and the tears run down my face. It was both beautifully written and heartbreaking. Forsaking Truth is an ugly look at the injustice and fear faced by those that find love outside the mainstream of societal norm. Even those that are in the relationship can face punishing regret and fear of being outed. Love is a private thing, yet a joy you want to share, something that not everyone will find. How heartbreaking to find love when it shames you and you need to hid [...]

    10. This was my first Male/Male romance. I have never been interested in reading same sex romances, despite the fact that I am very liberal when it comes to same sex relationships. As a heterosexual female, I just didn’t think I would be able to identify with the characters. Boy was I wrong. I absolutely loved this book. It's my favorite out of the series so far. Both Tristen and Luke characters intrigued me whenever they were mentioned in books two and four of this series (the only books I’ve r [...]

    11. My feels are all discombobulated! First and foremost, this is a male/male relationship. I have only read a hand full of them but this one was just freaking epic. *sigh*It is slightly different than the others in the series as it spans a great deal of time. We see what was happening on this side of all those hidden scenes in the previous stories and how their relationship began from the first moment. This story was about being who you are and not being ashamed of it. It hit right into my cold hea [...]

    12. This was my favorite of the series so far. This is the story of Luke and Tristen. It starts right when they meet and incorporates all the past books. The stories are all happening together, not one after another. The angst is kept to a minimum and the sex is hot. What else can a reader ask for? This series is about how a "perfect" family is not all perfect but quite "normal" and they all accept it. Sometimes people within families have expectations for themselves that the rest of the family does [...]

    13. This Book to me really hit homeFrom the beginning I knew it would grab me and get my Full attention . With dealing with some of these issues in my own Family I could completly unite with these Characters. I have loved this series from the beginning,the McCullough's are such a fun and interesting Family and even though this book was a little darker than the usual series ,it was needed to show the hardships and struggles of being Gay in a Small Community . Thank You Lydia for hitting another Home [...]

    14. As with all the McCollough Mountain books, Forsaking Truth is not your typical love story. It is an in depth look at life and society. At the trials and joys that Gay men face today and this couple faced in particular. In my opinion Lydia Michaels is virtuoso of prose, addressing sensitive subjects with intelligence, emotion and empathy. Kudos Lydia, on another shining gem in your tiara!See my full review at wp/p38Iym-2mp

    16. Damn you, Lydia Michaels! Tristan & Luke's story is so painful to read. So much hatred for the things we Don't or won't understand. Having guy people in my family I understand the fight probably more so. It's an unfortunate fact of life. However, once again the McCullough Parents come through for all their children with undivided love and acceptance. So many current issues discussed in just this particular family.

    17. 4.5 StarsARC provided by author for an honest reviewI cannot get enough of this series.I fell in love with the McCullough family with book one, Sacred Waters. Lydia Michaels has created an Irish family you cannot help but want to be a part of, and more importantly, married into, lol.This large family has had its ups and downs over the years and its share of emotional turmoil. But Luke's story has its own unique circumstances and Michaels does a superb job at writing a heart-wrenching tale of two [...]

    18. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Luke McCullough and Tristan Hughes. They are such a great couple that keeps hurting each other. Luke moved home to Center County to recover from a football injury and because, let’s face it; he couldn’t cut it in college. Tristan moved to Center County with his best friend Ryan, Luke’s cousin. They all work for the logging company owned by the McCullough’s. Luke has always been straight, so why is he thinking about Tristan? [...]

    20. This installment of the McCullough series is all about Luke and Tristian . This installment is much more emotional then the others . Tristian walked into Luke's life and turned it upside down. They fell in love and had to hide their love for over six years . They fought their feelings and hid from everyone . Until the day came that they had to come to terms and realize that they belong together .This book was a very emotional book for me . I love Luke and Tristian and to see what they had to go [...]

    21. I really enjoy Lydia's writinge has taken the McCullough's and addressed so many taboo topics so eloquently and powerfully it's impressive and very much needed. I loved Luke & Tristan's story, I appreciate having insight into what was going on while their siblings were having their own personal dilemmas. Luke and Tristan's story made me have the feels throughout. If you want a book that makes you feel heightened emotions then pick this story up. I was crying throughout from anger, sadness, a [...]

    22. Forsaking truth is the first M/M book I’ve read and I really enjoyed it. It was so emotional and beautifully written. It really gave me a view into what some couples go through just to be happy. The first part of the book was a deeper look at things we saw in previous books in the series. I was so glad the author did that because it answered some questions I had been wondering about. Tristan and Luke’s story is definitely a must read!!! I loved it so much!!
