"Trust In Me" Reviews
Tristan is easy to like and so because you're sucked in right away, you're invested in him by the time he starts to remember his summer, thee summer, when he learned about love and loss. This is a misunderstanding that is unfortunate but not the kind where it feels trite. It's understandable how the two men lost each other because they weren't men when it happened. Both were young, Jamie the golden-boy, the football god, and Tristan the nerd who's tongue-tied over him. Their love has a slow sexy build and lots of delicious foreplay before you see love explode all over the place. And years later when you see Tristan's hostility and hear Jamie's reticence, you get it. They've both been carrying around regrets; Tristan for what he didn't do and Jamie for what he didn't say. It's a mess but when they finally do trust each other, you know it will work out. And not only is the new faith spoken, but also shown in the reversal of their roles. It's sexy and sweet and should not be missed.
3.5 star reviwe by The Blogger Girls.
I enjoyed this sweet story about lost love, reuniting and reigniting that love. I really enjoy stories that recount first times when they are well done. The flashback early on that shows us Tristan’s first time with Jamie back when they were teens was really sweet and sexy. Unfortunately, a giant misunderstanding sends them on completely different paths that don’t cross again until some 10 years later.
This was a quick read, but it covers quite a bit of ground. Jamie still has to deal with some of the very issues that sent him running in the first place, and the two of them must get past the hurt that festered for that long as well. You really get a sense of the challenges Jamie was facing at that young age with college choices, pleasing his family and trying to please himself.
The characters are both very likable and they fit well together. They face a few more hurdles once they decide they won’t let each other slip away again, but they work through each of them together to make things work.
If you’re looking for a somewhat light, sexy and heartwarming at times, afternoon read, be sure to give this one a try.
Sweet romance about teenage love lost and found 10 years later. What troubled me is that the 2 characters are 10 years older but they are behaving a bit like when they were teenagers. There is an immaturity in the characters that does not fit their current age and life: they are supposed to be responsible adults, professional with big workload and lots of responsibilities. I expected a different behaviour.
So it's been well documented that I've got a long list of things that will make me put a book down no matter what and an even longer list of things that will usually turn me off unless a story is really damned well written. First person stories are usually in the latter category. Trust In Me is one of the rare books that made me look past my usual dislike for first person writing. The pacing was excellent, the characters were very likable and there was just enough drama to keep me interested but not so much that it dipped into the dreaded realm of melodrama (one of those things that's in the first category).
I wish perhaps that this story had been a little longer because I do feel like we arrive at a resolution very quickly, but other than that a solidly enjoyable book all around.
I adored Tristan. I read another review that said he just sucks you in and that's a perfect description. The entire story flows really well. Tristan and Jamie are separated by a misunderstanding after only a night together. The flashback was just the perfect length, the misunderstanding was, well.. understandable and the reunion had just enough angst without being overdone. This will definitely be one of those I reread.
I can't really decide if this was cute or unbearably cheesy. But I was in the mood for an easy HEA and this fit the bill.
