    The Holden Brothers series was fantastic and this short story....perfection! Love is raw, emotional and sometimes awkward but Lake and JP had years of friendship leading up to their moment. A great end to the series!

This stand-alone quick read is an ancillary story that intersects with the Holden family and is technically part of The Holden Brothers series. It highlights the kindness and welcoming nature of the loving family. Jude Holden plays a pivotal role and the Holden brothers make an appearance near the end. It offers a peak at Damon and Jae's wedding. Jude Platon Ives, twenty-four, wasn't prepared to lose his mother to a brain tumor. When she passes, the level-headed electrician is lost and left with nobody in the world to turn to except Lake. JP doesn't make friends easily, but she had been his best friend since the first day of kindergarten. Their friendship is solid, and he needs her support when he discovers that his beloved mother kept secrets from him. JP had accepted that she had a reason to keep his father's identity a secret, but when he finds money he hadn't known his mother had and he can't trace her history prior to her pregnancy with him in Maine, his world spins. He finds a clue on one of the financial statements. A name - his name, Jude. His namesake. Jude Hudson must have been important to his mother. Whether his father or just someone significant in his mother's life, he knows he needs to go to Houston for answers. Lake Duggan, about twenty-four, made a work excuse to avoid accompanying JP to Houston. She works at the Gilded Lily, a boutique for women that specializes in lingerie and toys. Teagan Young, the owner and her boss, is a romantic that would happily give Lake as much time as she needs to join JP in his quest for answers. Lake and JP have shared an apartment since she realized college wasn't for her around four years ago. But the normally carefree Lake has been crushing on JP since forever and is afraid of messing up their friendship with emotions running so high. Hanging out with JP all day in Houston and shacking up in a hotel room together is more intimate than normal and too risky. JP shows no romantic interest, so she has held back, hoping one day he will return her feelings. But the guilt weighs her down when she remembers how JP helped her through her own mother's death ten years earlier. When she hears JP's pain over the phone, she knows she has to go to him. JP and Lake's journey is a sweet story about the very best of friends finding the courage to admit to their feelings for one another while in the midst of a personal crisis. JP loses his mother, finds himself orphaned and alone, loses his job when his employer goes out of business, and discovers that his mother had kept life-altering secrets from him - all in a very short period of time. With everything spinning out of control, Lake is there for him as always. Their twenty years of friendship transform natually into something more, but not without a few hiccups. Jude Holden provides the answers JP needs, but in doing so takes the young JP under his wing. Though they live in Maine, JP and Lake are welcomed into the fold with open arms. The family and the couple have a brief but sweet HEA. JP and Lake's story is a quick read that is easily finished in an evening. There is a lot of story in this small package. It is nicely written. The plot is fairly complex given the length. The characters are well-defined. It is written in first person. The POV alternates between JP and Lake. I rate this book 4.5. stars.

However, now I feel like I really NEED (okay… WANT) to read the first three. This story is about JP and Lake. They’re in their early 20’s, and have been best friends since kindergarten.

It’s one #spoiler This was my first read from this author, and I will definitely be going back for more! ‘Chasing The Truth’ is the fourth book in The Holden Brothers series, but having read it as a standalone, I don’t feel I missed anything. However, now I feel like I really NEED (okay… WANT) to read the first three. This story is about JP and Lake. They’re in their early 20’s, and have been best friends since kindergarten. They are the closest of friends, and know each other so incredibly well. It’s one of those comfortable relationships where either one doesn’t have to say something in particular, or give a certain look… they just ‘know’ and understand the other. The thing is though, they both harbour deeper feelings for each other, but haven’t wanted to act on them for two main reasons… firstly, they haven’t wanted to risk their friendship falling apart if they overstep, AND they’re both worried the other may not reciprocate the other’s feelings. It’s funny sometimes, how you can be so naïve or ignorant (not in a bad way) about how someone truly feels when you supposedly know them so well. Anyway, this pair are there for each other in times of tragedy and deep hurt. Once JP discovers some secrets from his past, he feels hurt, betrayed and confused. Lake is there for him and takes the biggest leap of faith, to show her true feelings. Whilst the moment is everything she hoped for and more, JP’s delayed reaction in the morning is heart-breaking for her. She is hurt and leaves, with neither of them making contact for a little while. Whilst JP finally admits how he feels about her, he needs to make it up to her, and hope that he hasn’t messed things up for good. They both see the potential of their relationship, but are a bit stubborn. It adds to the enjoyment of the story. Thank goodness he makes that bold, but totally necessary move. This leads to the rapid development of a beautifully loving relationship that warmed my heart. I couldn’t help smiling. I just wish the book hadn’t ended so quickly, and that there was more to their story. I would certainly be interested in seeing where they’re at down the track. I’d definitely recommend this one! I give it four and a half stars. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Chase the truth results in some unexpected outcomes Chasing the Truth is the fourth book in The Holden Brothers series and is the story of Jude Platon and Lake Duggan. While this is technically a Holden Brothers book it is a bit different from the others. At twenty-four Jude Platon loses his loving mother, Melissa Ives, to a brain tumor.

She is the only relative that he is aware of so he is untethered in the world. That is except for his best friend Lake Duggan. As Jude is going through his mothers papers he discovers some things about her past that he needs to piece together to know more about what her story is and therefore his own. One thing he finds is the name Jude Holden with some financial records and sets out to find out who he is and what his connection was to his mother, after all it appears he was named after him. His journey takes him to Houston, Texas where he does find some answers. But as his world is spinning around him, with long buried secrets coming to light, it is Lake who helps keep him together when she flies out to be with him. It becomes apparent that Lake and Jude have a special and close relationship but one that has not crossed the friendship line. Maybe it is time to take a leap for each of them?

    Chasing the Truth is book 4 in the Holden Brothers series even though our male lead is not actually a Holden brother, there is some character overlap.

When JP’s mother dies he goes on a quest to find the father he never knew. When things don’t go as planned Lake rushes to be by his side and their relationship takes a turn in a way both want but we’re too afraid to admit. Then things get worse because J.P. panics. This was a quick read and the story has a nice progression without dragging. It is not as steamy or graphic as most M.S. Parker stories I have read but I didn’t mind, it actually was nice to get a better feel for the characters relationship outside of sex.

His best friend Lake, who he shares an apartment with remained at home until she heard the sadness in JP’s voice that night. Lake has been in love with him for years but has never dared to put her heart on the line, treasuring their friendship first and foremost. This is a well written, short story about what happens when you take a chance, what happens when plans go awry and what happens when you finally own the truth. An excellent ending to what has been a superb series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    This is a short story but still it was nice to have a little insight into JP's life. If you already read about the Holden brothers and how generous Jude is, it will be no surprise to you how JP was received and added to the family. It's also nice to read that he is not alone, that he has Lake who loves him and is willing to forgive his stupid behavior and to see the chemistry they have and how well they click together.

    This is a continuation of the Holden family story, only JP isn't a Holden. He's someone who owes everything to Jude Holden. A man who helps him discover his past and urges him to embrace his future. Lake has been his best friend since they were kids. Too bad he doesn't know that she's had a crush on him forever. Super short story that explains his part in the whole Holden family saga. Good, quick read. This is a continuation of the Holden family story, only JP isn't a Holden.

    Lake and JP have been together since attending kindergarten. Both of them love each other but neither says anything because they don’t want to lose their friendship. However, after JP’s mother passed away, everything changes. Shorter than the other books in the series and a bit different, but no less enjoyable. I like M. S. Parker’s style. It is refreshing and quick to read. Without any doubt an author to follow.

    What a great short story into the life of JP outside of his showing up thinking that Jude Holden was his father. What makes this short story really great was the friends to lovers aspect, Lake and JP have know each other since kindergarten and they both have had an attraction to one another but have never had the guts to act it, that is till one night when JP life is shaping up to have some secrets and Lake comes to his rescue and just acts. Great short read

    I loved this short story of JP and Lake. The story allows us to see what happens to JP and how his came into the Holden's life’s. It is extremely well written and it is fantastic to see some of the characters from the other stories. It is sweet and charming and is definitely a beautiful addition to the series. We get a little more insight on the Holden's and their lives. It is a must read!!!!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Brilliant A lovely finale to an amazing set of books. Loved the storyline and the characters and their connections with each other. Loved JP and Lake and their story. So pleased they had the perfect relationship with the Holden family and that they had their HEA. Brilliant finale.

    Short, raw, emotional roller coaster of a read. JP and Lake have been friends for years. When JPs mom dies he finds something that sends him chasing the truth, Lake and JP friends to lovers will leave you wanting more.
