Welcome to my Express Lane Reviews, where I review a book quickly – with 7 points or less – so you can get on your way!
Summary from Amazon:
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?
*so, I’m starting a new type of review on my blog called Express Lane Review. The idea is that these types of reviews are quick (think express lanes in grocery stores), and each review will have 7 (or less) points. Let me know if you like them, or if you have any advice. I’ll still be doing my regular reviews, as well. I just wanted to have some variety in my review structures*
Point One: Trust in Me is basically Wait for You in Cam’s (the hero’s) POV. These types of stories seem to be quite popular in the New Adult category lately. Hopeless and Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover, Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire, for examples. I loved Cam in Wait for You. He’s just such a nice guy, so I was excited to read this story from his perspective. I definitely fell more in love with him in Trust in Me.
Point Two: There wasn’t as much sexual tension in Trust in Me that I’m used to in other J. Lynn or Jennifer L. Armentrout books. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still tension, but it felt a bit weaker. Perhaps because this is the same story being retold in Cam’s POV?
Point Three: J. Lynn didn’t really add much more to the original story of Wait for You. I actually found myself skimming a bit, because I had already read many scenes from Avery’s perspective.
Point Four: I think you would need to read Wait for You first, to truly understand the story. New comers could read Trust in Me, and for the most part understand it, but I think it would be best to read Wait for You first.
Point Five: J. Lynn throws in a few hints at what’s going to happen in the next book in this series focusing on Cam’s sister, Teresa, and his best friend, Jase. Those small snippets has left me impatient for Be with Me which will be released in February 2014.
Point Six: Fans of Wait for You would enjoy Trust in Me, but I’m not sure if I would recommend this specific book to anyone who hasn’t read, and liked, Wait for You. Although I enjoyed Trust in Me, I don’t think it’s as good as Wait for You. I’m not sure if it’s because I already knew what the outcome would be, or if I just connected more with Avery’s side of the story than Cam’s.
