RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - Trust by Avery Woods
Trust - Avery Woods

Why does society treat you as an outcast when you're single? Is it not bad enough that I have my two best friends pressuring me to date every chance they get. It's probably because I still haven't told them the reason I've avoided dating: The fact that I am HIV positive. It's this dirty little secret I've been keeping to myself for the last two years. I've tried telling my friends and family numerous times, but something always gets in my way. At least that's what I tell myself. Don't worry, I'm ninety percent sure you can find my picture under the word cynical in the dictionary.

Since my ex-boyfriend basically called me a walking disease, I've lost a bit of my self confidence you could say. I mean, how am I suppose to tell my friends and family? I guess writing a letter to my parents won't cut it.

More importantly, how is Travis, the new guy I like going to take the news? He is perfect, and I am far from it. I have to trust him, but trusting someone is easier said than done.

If dealing with HIV wasn't enough, the bombshell my mom decided to invoke on my sister and I sure takes the cake. At least that's what I thought, until I attended Lauren's birthday party. Who knew that would be a night I would never forget.

Who would have thought ripping off a band aid would be the most painful route to take?

Good Suspense
Trust by Design - Stacey Joy Netzel,Stacy D. Holmes

Trust By Design by Stacey Joy Netzel is a fabulous romantic suspense.  Ms. Netzel has provided us with a book that is well-written and filled with outstanding characters.  Gina kisses a stranger on a dare.  Dean chases Gina when she kisses him and leaves the bar, but she's gone.  He's surprised when she arrives at his home as his new interior decorator.  Their story is loaded with suspense, action, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Trust By Design and look forward to my next book by Stacey Joy Netzel.  Trust By Design is book 2 of the Colorado Trust Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

This one had the makings of a really adorable story...older MCs, second chances, babies!!!! So much potential...
Earning His Trust - Alicia Nordwell

Evin is a single dad raising his son on his own...this wasn't the plan but you know what they say...life is what happens when we're busy making other plans. 

 

When Evin finds himself at the local emergency room following an accident in the kitchen while baking the last thing he expects to encounter is the man who he once thought he'd spend his life with. A man whose just as surprised to see Evin sitting in the patients chair much less see him sitting there with a small child in tow. But when opportunity knocks...Ben's willing to answer the door.

 

Ben thought that ending things between him and Evin was the right thing to do after college their lives were heading in different directions he was sure it was the best solution for them both. What he didn't realize was that years later he'd still love Evin and want him in his life even if it was only as friends. 

 

Ben quickly realizes that while he may want more what Evin truly needs is a friend and he's determined to step up and be that friend and if luck's on his side maybe he could win back Evin's trust and they'd get that happily ever after that he'd so carelessly thrown away.

 

I really liked that Ben was willing to be patient and to prove to Evin that a second chance was something that they both deserved and that Ben also recognized that Evin had some other issues that he needed to resolve before they could be together. 

 

In general this was a sweet story but unfortunately it seemed to keep getting lost in the day to day details to the point that at times it just really distracted from the developing romance for me. I think if there had been a little more focus on Ben and Evin rebuilding their relationship had been added it would have gone a long way towards helping me to become more invested in Ben and Evin being reunited. 

 

Mickey Hamm was the narrator for this story giving me 'a new to me author and narrator' to discover and while 'Earning His Trust' didn't work as well for me as I'd hoped it would I was comfortable with the author's writing style and am definitely think that there's potential for the future with this author and I definitely look forward to seeing what Mickey Hamm brings to the audio book format in future. I enjoyed the narration on this book and the narrator definitely added to this story in a positive manner for me. 

 

'Earning His Trust' appears to be the Mickey Hamm's first audio book and he definitely ticked off my 'what I look for in a narrator' list and I'll be keeping this narrator on my 'watchlist'. 

 

*************************

An audio book of 'Earning His Trust' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Typical Crusie
Trust Me on This - Jennifer Crusie

This was a fun ride - the overall (and very much in your face) topic was "risk something".

All four characters who formed the two couples in the book were bumbling along in their lives and with a little shove changed their live to the better.

 

I immensely enjoyed the humour - a trademark of this author.

 

I loved the main character though she was not perfect, she was interesting and a lot of fun.

 

But my favourite was Aunt Victoria. She was just incredibly cool. I am not 100% sure I love the way the love story played out with her - throwing away her career at this point felt truly stupid to my feminist heart - I would have enjoyed reading an ending where the guy gives up his career to support his woman for once, but that was asking too much obviously...
