Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life – literally – he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam’s not ready to give up. He can’t get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head. Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery's life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?
It is no secret that I loved Wait for Me, thus I couldn’t wait to read the same story from Cam’s point of view. I couldn’t imagine this story getting any better, but it did!
Since I wrote a full review for Wait for Me, I won’t go into the same details, but rather, let me tell you what I loved about Trust in Me. Cam’s mind is a much comfortable place to be. Don’t get me wrong, I understand Avery’s angst, self-doubt, and mistrust, but by contrast, Cam is just the opposite (opposites attract, right). While reading the first book and thought that Cam must have the patience of a saint, and indeed he does! Cam’s a guy. What do I mean by that? Well, he has a one-track mind (you get my meaning).
In Trust in Me we get to see the whole study (minus Avery’s angst as I mentioned before), plus what goes on with Cam when the two are not together. It also gives the reader a chance to get better acquainted with Cam’s friends, Oliver and Jase, as well as with Cam’s family, especially his sister. I also like that he’s not afraid to talk about feelings and confronts his rage to try to keep it under control.
As always, the fabulous Jennifer Armentrout cannot help but to write an amazing story. I love her writing style, it’s straightforward and beautiful at the same time. I really hope you give this story a try because it’s wonderful!
