If Ben wants to find love with Micah, he'll have to own up to the truth of who he is.

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 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.

Full Excerpt

I'm not gay. I'm not gay. I'm not gay.

I know you're thinking that's a weird chant for a straight guy to have as his mantra. But I figure maybe if I think it over and over again, it'll actually be true. I mean, I don't look gay or anything. I'm six feet three inches tall, muscular, and have broad shoulders. That's not small or girly. And I'm athletic. I played varsity sports all through high school, intramurals in college, and I still play in a men's baseball league. I have a deep, strong voice. No lisp in sight. Plus, women like me. I always have a girlfriend. Always.

So I'm not gay, right? There must be some other logical explanation for why I'm standing in the bathroom with my hard dick in my hand fantasizing about the new guy at work. For the third time today. And it isn't…


I am head over heels for the Home series and have been since I first read it nearly two years ago. I've also stated in the past that is near impossible to pick a favorite of the series, but there is one that I love marginally better than all the rest. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to Just What the Truth Is, my very favorite book in Cardeno C's Home series. Why do I love this book so much? Well, let me tell you. I'll start with the characters. If I've said it once, I've said it a billion times. Cardeno C is a master of characterization, and this story proves that. ... And the plot is engrossing. Ben's journey from momma's boy to his own man is something to behold. It is a bumpy, hard, and ugly road, but the outcome is beautiful. ... So, yes, I absolutely, hands down love Ben and Micah's story. It's emotional and lovely. In such a character-driven series, these characters are perfect. I love the story and absolutely love this series. If you haven't read any of the books in this series, don't worry. This series is written so that each story is a standalone and can be read in any order. My advice? Read them all. You won't regret it. And start wherever you want, but definitely read this book. I highly, highly recommend Just What the Truth Is by Cardeno C.

It's lovely and thoughtful, and it still rains fluffy kittens from the sky of sweetness like the rest of the collection.

A great story with characters that I genuinely grew to love and with the kind of Happily-Ever-After I love.
