Roll Against Trust: A #GeekLove Ménage R... Roll Against Trust: A #GeekLove Ménage Romance (3d20) - Allyson Lindt

Roll Against Trust is an entertaining read by Allyson Lindt.  This is a fairly short book, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  This is a menage book though, so it may not be for everyone.  Tasha, Seth and Ryan's story is loaded with suspense, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Roll Against Trust and look forward to reading more from Allyson Lindt in the future.  Roll Against Trust is book 1 of the 3D20 Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Trust
The Trust: A Novel (Liam Taggart and Catherine Lockhart) - Ronald H. Balson


Being away from Ireland for 16 years had not eased the feelings a few of Liam Taggert's cousins had for him.

Liam had moved to Chicago from Ireland 16 years ago on bad terms, and now that his uncle had been murdered, he returned for the funeral.

What Liam returned to was his being chosen as the Trustee of his uncle's will and a task that was both dangerous for Liam as well as his family.  There were a lot of stipulations set in the last will and testament for distribution of the estate as well as hard feelings because Liam had been out of touch and was now in charge.

Liam now wished he hadn't answered that phone call not more than a week ago.  If he had ignored it, he may not be in the legal predicament he was put in by his uncle nor the danger it was causing the entire family both in Ireland and the United States.

Being Trustee carried a lot of responsibility as well as legalities family members didn't want to understand. The family also couldn't understand why Liam wouldn't break the rules and tell them the details of the last will and testament of Uncle Fergus.

To further complicate things, the Taggert family was getting threats and notes indicating payback time. No one was sure who was murdering members of the Taggert family, but forty years of hatred, vengeance, and fighting still ran deep among the Northern Ireland residents.

The Taggert family was an interesting lot, and the murders and family mystery were intriguing.

THE TRUST is beautifully written and so well written that you smoothly move along and become captured in the story line and the characters.

If you enjoy books set in Ireland, mysteries, murders, and family drama, you definitely do not want to miss reading THE TRUST.

I truly enjoyed the book and found it difficult to put down. ​ 5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.

Trust - Kylie Scott

Trust


I am not an avid reader of the Young Adult genre, but this book kept calling my name. To be honest, it had nothing to do with the author as my experience with her was limited, having only read one book written by her. The synopsis was the driving force behind my decision to read Trust by Kylie Scott.

This story differs from anything I have read before. Its unique storyline sucked me in and if it were not for my busy work schedule, I would have finished it sooner than I did. It tells the story of two high school students who were brought together because of a tragic event which would forever change their lives. Trust is a coming of age story that embraces the themes of friendship, love, drug addiction and fat shaming.

The title aptly fits the story as this was what Edie was forced to do when she found herself in the middle of a hostage situation involving a crazed drug addict. Placing her trust in a complete stranger was the last thing on her mind when she went to purchase snacks in the middle of the night dressed in nothing but her PJs and flip-flops. Her fear at that moment was palpable. She had no idea if she would get out alive. However, in the midst of all the chaos, she discovered she was not alone. There was a guy, a teenager like herself, who went above and beyond to secure her safety. The two found themselves bound to each other through shared memories of a night they would both prefer to forget.

The highlight of the story for me was the unlikely friendship that developed between John and Edie. They never expected to see each other again after that fateful night. However, Edie’s decision to change schools led to their paths crossing once again. Theirs was a friendship borne out of tragedy, but it would provide them with the healing they both needed. Despite the challenges faced, their friendship developed to the point where lines became blurred and so not only do they have to deal with painful memories, they have to figure out if their feelings for each other were real.

I admired Edie for her strength of character. She refused to be labelled a victim. Her body was on the plump side and she faced constant shaming as a result, but she did not allow the hateful remarks define her. She accepted herself the way she was, and no intention of changing to please others. In spite of this, there were moments when her insecurities would rear its head, especially around John. Not only is she a fighter, she is caring and funny.

I loved how John was with Edie. His need to protect her extended beyond that fateful night. John has his share of struggles, however, he always finds time for Edie whenever she needed him. They were protective of each other and they had each other’s back at all times. I loved that John saw beyond her plumpness and accepted all of her.

The secondary characters played their part in making this story shine. They provided enough laughter to balance out the pain, fears and angst.

I did have a few issues with the story, but it did not take away from my enjoyment.

I thought the situation with John and his brother could have been handled better. The whole scenario was rushed and lacking in details.

The story was told primarily from Edie’s POV. It would have been great to be privy to John’s inner thoughts and feelings. My knowledge of his struggles and feelings were gained from Edie’s perspective. I believe that having the story from John’s POV would have made the story that more realistic, especially as it relates to their romance. Edie’s feelings for John were obvious based on her inner dialogue, but it was difficult discerning how John’s true feelings.

I expected more information in regards to Edie’s feelings after the traumatic incident. I understood why she had trouble sleeping, but the other aspects did not ring true for someone who stared death in the face.

Recommendation/Conclusion
In spite of the issues, Trust is an enjoyable read and fans of the YA genre and Kylie Scott will fall in love with this book.

Sweet and Sexy
SEAL'd Trust (Brotherhood of SEAL'd Hearts) - Gabi Moore

This one was a bit different than what I've come to expect from this author, but it's just as good. Max and Kate's story does have a touch of darkness, but the story is lighter than Moore's usual fare. SEAL'd Trust is more about what comes after the darkness, after you break away from the bad and start a life with hope. Max and Kate don't start out as lovers and as the story progresses, we get to see a friendship develop - one that gradually becomes more. Max is certainly an alpha male. He's sexy and tough, but he also has a softer side that is quite lovable. Given Kate's recent past, she has some serious trust issues to work through and Max may be just the thing she needs, whether she realizes it or not. This couple is so good together and when they come together, it's off the charts steamy with a touch of sweetness thrown in. 

To sum it up, SEAL'd Trust is kind of an enemies to friends to lovers romance. It's sweet and sexy with a bit of humor. It's not just about romance, but about living life with hope and finding that special someone to spend that life with. With a good flow, great characters, and witty dialogue, this one is certainly a page turner and I loved every single word!

Trust in Me
Trust in Me - Samantha Chase

I liked this slightly better than the last one.
Maggie used to be an executive assistant, until she was sexually harassed and almost assaulted by her boss. William Montgomery happened to be there at that time and offered her a job. Fast forward 3 years later. William thinks it's time she got a promotion, started living, and stopped hiding. He also wanted to match her with his son, Jason. Jason, on the other hand, has been hit on by multiple women. (He blamed it on Emma and Lucas). Problem is, Maggie has pretended to be married for last 3 years to keep men away from her. What ensues next is friendship, than attraction.
It was sad that her ex-boss had so much power over her. It does get resolved, but I would have liked Maggie to have been more involved in it. (I think that those who have read the book will know (and agree) to what I refer to).
Jason, a workaholic, was able to be more balanced. I did think the ending was more rushed and I didn't appreciate how he handled the ex-boss situation. 
Clean romance. Kissing only.
