9781101623152_medium_TrueWhen Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.
Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…

Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost…


Erin McCarthy, author of the New Adult novel True, shares her top 5 Rom-Coms of all time and why they make the cut.


1. My Big Fat Greek Wedding because the romance feels genuine and the insane family familiar.


2. Mamma Mia!  Who doesn’t want to be Meryl Streep being wooed by three guys? Because I do. The secondary romances are also sweet and amusing.


3. The Proposal.  Ryan Reynolds = foxy. Sandra Bullock = awesome chick we feel like we’re friends with.  I’m in.


4. 50 First Dates.  I thought I would HATE this movie because of the horrible premise, but Drew and Adam just charmed me into forgetting the tragic amnesia angle.  Um, a guy who spends every day making you fall in love with him??  Sold.  Plus the cover of The Cure’s “Love Song” makes me feel 18 again.


5. There’s Something About Mary.  It’s a classic because it turned the whole genre on its ear and made us laugh in true LOL fashion.


6. And this is six, but Moonstruck.  Cher is amazing and Nicholas Cage so angsty and dramatic that you can’t help but fall for it.  “Snap out of it!” Awesome line.
