From the New York Times bestselling author of Taking Chances, From Ashes, and Stealing Harper, comes the new unforgettable adult romance Molly McAdams’ fans have been waiting for—the sizzling story of a young woman who must place her trust in the one man who can break through her defenses.
A night they will always remember…a connection neither can deny…a secret that could destroy it all…
When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.
Liam Taylor has been asked to help socialize his boss’s nieces. But what he thinks sounds more like a babysitting job ends up leading him to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning—a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.
But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?
"Trying not to wake him, I slowly slid out from under his arm and off the bed to search for my clothes. Once I was dressed, I told myself to just leave, but I couldn’t help it—I turned to look at him in the light. I needed to be sure I hadn’t made him up.
The images from last night tore through my mind again when I saw the large, tattooed arm resting where my body had just been. The muscles were well defined even relaxed, and the face had a boyish charm now that he was asleep. Such a difference from the predatory stare and knowing smirk I kept seeing in my mind. Before I could stop myself, I gently ran my fingers through his dirty-blond hair that, now in the sunlight, I could see had a red tint to it. And I knew if he opened them, those arctic blue eyes would once again captivate me.
But I couldn’t risk that.
I’d already stayed too long; I’d already made a mistake with him. Drunken one-night stands weren’t my thing. Drunken one-night stands with strangers in Vegas were even worse.
Straightening, I turned and walked quietly from the room."-- Molly McAdams, Trusting Liam
As I was writing my review for my blog post, I went to Amazon to get the book links. Turns out, I forgot a very important detail. When I first saw that this book was a combination of 2 of Molly McAdam's books, I knew I wanted to read it immediately. However, by the time I actually read the story, I had totally forgotten that little tidbit of information.
Since I forgot about the combination, I read the story like it was a stand alone. If you haven't read the others, you will not be missing anything in this wonderful book. I absolutely enjoyed it from beginning to end and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good romance novel. Just be warned, once you start reading a book by this talented author, you will want to read more of her books. Her writing can quickly become an addiction, as they are an automatic one click for me.
This book evoked just as much emotion as I expected. I laughed and I cried right along with the characters. I felt like I was right there participating rather then watching it from the outside. I even cried for Kira, Kennedy's twin sister. She and her long-term boyfriend Zane had to be separated because of the circumstances. Even though their relationship was a secondary plot, my heart just went out to her. Molly writes in such a way that you can't help but experience the emotions.
This book is written in alternating POV and has no cliffhanger.
