Trials Review

Rock Bottom #2
Author: Sarah Biermann
Genre: New Adult
Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets

"They think Jeremy murdered her."

Drugs pushed them away...will murder bring them together?

Since losing the rock star love of her life, Harvard Law student Dylan Ackhart is doing the best she can to move on. Now in her third and final year, she's doing well in school and just landed her dream internship in Boston's District Attorney's office. She keeps away from the news so she doesn't hear about Jeremy Mason- about his frequent parties, new women, and apparent drug use.

But when the body of a young girl is found in his home, suddenly Dylan and Jeremy are thrust together in the most difficult and awkward of circumstances. Dylan is forced to choose between the only man she ever loved and the only dream she ever wanted. Will she leave everything behind and be with Jeremy? Or will Jeremy find himself in more trouble than she can help him out of?

I rated Trials with FIVE LEAVES! This is the second book in the Rock Bottom Series. The first book is Tracks and I loved that one as well but this one really did it for me. Tracks was sort of left in a cliffhanger, so I was very excited to start this book and see where the story was headed. Dylan finally is on the right track to have everything she has dreamed of. She is in her third year at Harvard Law School and is in line for one of the best internships there is. This is why she let Jeremy go in the first place. They both had to fix themselves and she needed to focus on school so she could get this internship. It has been 10 months since Jeremy finally walked out of her life. She is trying to move on with a new guy and she is trying to forget Jeremy Mason. When Dylan turns on the news and finds out that Jeremy is a suspect in a murder investigation, she knows things aren't good. The investigation brings Jeremy and Dylan back into each others lives and they both have to decide if this is what is best for them or if they should move on forever. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read this series and find out for yourself what happens with Dylan and Jeremy. I promise you won't be disappointed!!

Overcome with emotion, I walk around him, keeping my arms around his waist. I stop when I’m standing in front of him. I look up at him, his hands covering his face, until he drops them to his side. He looks down at me, his eyes deliciously exposed. I understand that this moment is another trial for me- one I’m about to fail.
I stand on my toes and kiss him passionately. I release his waist and place my hands in his hair. He tastes better than I could ever have remembered and when we connect, my entire body tingles. It’s like he is breathing life back into me.
He’s still for a moment, shocked into rigidness. As my mouth begins to move against his, he starts to move his lips in synchronization. He wraps his arms delicately around me, but we’ve been apart too long for gentle. I push my mouth harder into his and wrap my fingers tighter in his hair.
His breathing increases and his mouth moves faster with mine. He grabs the back of my shirt roughly, flipping me around and slamming me back against the wall. I moan and wrap my legs around him. He drops his hands to hold me under my ass.
“Damn you, Dylan,” he says, growling the words in between kisses. “Damn you for making me love you so much. I need you. I need you now. I’ve never needed anything more in my life than I need you right now.” His voice breaks.
I understand now, in a way, his addiction. I understand having the pull to something you know is probably bad for you. You know it will probably end horribly. But it makes you feel so good that how can you deny it? I guess that makes me an addict, too. Maybe not of drugs, but to something that has the potential to be just as damaging to me and those around me.
The difference between Jeremy and I is that while he’s beating his addiction, I’m succumbing to mine.
