Truly by Ruthie Knox (as serialized in WattPad)
Truly wonderful, Truly spectacular, Truly there is a naked beekeeper, Truly you will really, really love this.
Truly is a full length novel serialized in WattPad and can be read for free for a limited time. I loved May and Ben. I loved how in the short amount of time they were together in New York, they connected and had fun and got to know each other. And it was all written so well that as a reader you go "Oh yes, it can definitely happen". They were both screwed up but not in the so angsty way that you read in some books. They're flawed but they also know this, acknowledged it and as the story progresses, come to terms with it and moved forward from there. There is definitely humor and fun in this story. There are moments of truth delivered in that matter of fact way that is befitting the characters personality. Ruthie Knox gives me two ordinary people, with ordinary lives, with typical regular people problems and packages this into one extraordinary story.
May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. Just weeks after moving from Wisconsin to Manhattan, she receives the world's worst marriage proposal, stabs her boyfriend with a shrimp fork in a very public venue, and accidentally becomes notorious. And that’s before she gets mugged.
At her wit's end, May washes up at a Packers bar in Greenwich Village, where she meets a surly, unhelpful guy who hates her shoes and calls her ex a douche.
His name is Ben. He used to be a chef. Now he's a rooftop beekeeper with anger management issues. She wouldn't even like him, but he reminds her of home … and he knows where to find all the best food in the Village.
She makes him laugh. He buys her tacos and cowboy boots. The longer they’re stuck together, the better May and Ben get along … and the harder they fall. TRULY is a quirky, modern New York love story unlike any you've read before.
