SYNOPSIS

It’s Wait for You as you’ve never seen it. Trust in Me lets you in on Cam’s side of the #1 New York Times Bestselling story.

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?

There are no words for how freaking much I love this story. Do you realize how hard it is to write a review when all you really need to say is “Cam…”. Yes, Cam is enough reason for anyone to read Trust in Me and I highly recommend that you do!

Trust in Me is Wait for You told from Cam’s perspective. I read Wait for You first and I highly recommend reading it before Trust in You. Even though it is the same story (with additional scenes + Cam’s thoughts), unless you understand what’s going on in Avery’s head, she probably comes across as really strange.

I fell in love with Wait for You. I read the entire book in one sitting and was so sad when it was over, so getting to revisit the story in Trust in Me was such a treat! I loved reading it just as much as I loved reading Wait for Me. Knowing what happens didn’t take away any of the fun for me. I actually had trouble putting the book down at all and was really excited to get to my favorite parts and read them through Cam’s eyes.

One of the things that shocked me most was how vulnerable Cam really was. And maybe that’s a bit of an over statement, but he always seemed so confident. I wasn’t expecting to see him discouraged by Avery’s rejection so early on or to see his hesitation when he did something crazy (like inviting himself over for breakfast at an ungodly hour).

On top of all that, it was so obvious that he really liked Avery in Wait for You, but I didn’t understand how completely smitten he was until I read Trust in Me. It made me go from loving Avery and Cam together, to completely loving Cam on his own.

Since I wasn’t ready for Wait for You to be over, I was really happy that I got to relive the story with Trust in Me. Cam and Avery are such a great couple, and we just get to know Cam so much better in Trust in Me. It really   is an all around fantastic story. The only thing that makes me sad is there is no other perspective to tell the story from! I loved essentially being able to re-read but having it still feel kind of new.
