Moment of Truth by Kasie West


“‘When did you two get together?’

‘We’re not together.’

‘That was a lot of flirting.’

‘Jackson’s like that with everyone.’

‘I wasn’t talking about Jackson’”

(West 157).
I was looking online, and I think that this book used to be called Hearts, Heroes, and Heath Hall!

Goodreads synopsis: At sixteen, Hadley Moore knows exactly who she is—a swimmer who will earn a scholarship to college. Totally worth all the hard work, even if her aching shoulders don’t agree. So when a guy dressed as Hollywood’s latest action hero, Heath Hall, crashes her swim meet, she isn’t amused. Instead, she’s determined to make sure he doesn’t bother her again. Only she’s not sure exactly who he is.

The swim meet isn’t the first event the imposter has interrupted, but a little digging turns up a surprising number of people who could be Heath Hall, including Hadley’s ex-boyfriend and her best friend’s crush. She soon finds herself getting caught up in the mysterious world of the fake Heath Hall.

As Hadley gets closer to uncovering the masked boy’s identity she also discovers some uncomfortable truths about herself—like she might resent the long shadow her late brother has cast over her family, that she isn’t as happy as she pretends to be with her life choices… and that she is falling for the last guy she ever thought she would like.

Rating: 5 STARS!!! 😍

Spoiler-free review: OH MY GOSH!!! This book was so cute!!! Some other books I’ve read by Kasie West are Love, Life, and the List, Maybe This Time and By Your Side, but this one was definitely my favorite! I just couldn’t stop smiling! 😄 I was looking for books to read on Libby, and when I read the synopsis of this one, I was a little bit confused but very intrigued! The whole idea of “someone dressed up as Heath Hall crashes Hadley’s swim meet” wasn’t like anything I’d ever come across a before, but after reading the first couple of chapters, I couldn’t stop turning the page! I love the dialogue in all of Kasie West’s books, and I feel she is so good at making realistic and interesting characters! I found Hadley to be such an admirable protagonist! She’s hardworking, funny, a wonderful friend, and very dedicated. Also, JACKSON!!! Oh my gosh, he made me laugh so much throughout the novel! (The synopsis doesn’t explain who his, but you will find out at the beginning of the book!) If you like coming-of-age novels with an absolutely ADORABLE romance sprinkled in, then this book is for you! I’m making it my mission to read all of Kasie West’s books! Also, all the covers of her novels are so pretty!

Anyways, this book has absolutely everything! Mystery, drama, a complex protagonist, romance, internal conflicts… the whole shebang! I HIGHLY recommend Moment of Truth and I promise (well not really but I’m like a good eighty-five percent sure!) that you won’t be disappointed! The plot was amazing and the ending was just MAGICAL! AHH! I LOVED IT! ❤️

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day and don’t ever forget how amazing you are! ❤️—Rishika
