From the New York Times bestselling author of Taking Chances, From Ashes, and Stealing Harper, comes the new unforgettable adult romance Molly McAdams’ fans have been waiting for—the sizzling story of a young woman who must place her trust in the one man who can break through her defenses.
A night they will always remember…a connection neither can deny…a secret that could destroy it all…
When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.
Liam Taylor has been asked to help socialize his boss’s nieces. But what he thinks sounds more like a babysitting job ends up leading him to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning—a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.
But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?
Excerpt: "Trying not to wake him, I slowly slid out from under his arm and off the bed to search for my clothes. Once I was dressed, I told myself to just leave, but I couldn’t help it—I turned to look at him in the light. I needed to be sure I hadn’t made him up. The images from last night tore through my mind again when I saw the large, tattooed arm resting where my body had just been. The muscles were well defined even relaxed, and the face had a boyish charm now that he was asleep. Such a difference from the predatory stare and knowing smirk I kept seeing in my mind. Before I could stop myself, I gently ran my fingers through his dirty-blond hair that, now in the sunlight, I could see had a red tint to it. And I knew if he opened them, those arctic blue eyes would once again captivate me. But I couldn’t risk that. I’d already stayed too long; I’d already made a mistake with him. Drunken one-night stands weren’t my thing. Drunken one-night stands with strangers in Vegas were even worse.
Straightening, I turned and walked quietly from the room."-- Molly McAdams, Trusting Liam
~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
I highly recommend that you pick up Taking Chances and Stealing Harper alongside Forgiving Lies, Deceiving Lies, and Changing Everything. It is very beneficial that you read these books because the story is built on things from these prior books and where this book will collide with both of those series.
This story is about the son from Taking Chances, Liam Taylor, and the daughter from Forgiving Lies, Kennedy Ryan. If you have read Taking Chances you will know that Liam is the biological son of Chase and Harper, but has been raised by Brandon as his father. I loved that we got to see so many characters from previous books and we read more of Brandon, who just melts my heart! Brandon plays a huge part in this book because he is an owner of gym that Kennedy and her sister will start to work.
Kennedy Ryan and her twin sister Kira had to move to California due to a threat from their dad's and uncle’s job. Kennedy is all for the new start in life, but her sister on the other hand is not looking forward to moving. Kennedy’s uncle Eli, who you met in Forgiving Lies was able to find the girls a job when they moved to California. When the girls start their work, Kennedy meets someone from her past who she thought she would never see again, Liam Taylor. Liam was supposed to be an one-night stand who she met in Las Vegas over a year ago. It would be fate for Liam that the girl he met a year ago would be working at his dad’s gym. Liam never thought he would be able to find the girl from Las Vegas and now he is determined to win her heart over. It’s very obvious that Liam and Kennedy have a connection, but Kennedy does not do love or relationships. Liam believes with time he might be able to change her mind. As Liam starts to fall for Kennedy, he makes it his mission to show her that real love exists. All Liam wants to do is show her, she is worthy of love and happiness. Just when Kennedy starts to open up to Liam, a person from her past throws everything off course.

Molly McAdams knows how to write beautifully well-written stories that will keep you captivated. She has an art to her writing that no matter what story it will consume you.

~*ABOUT THE AUTHOR*~
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
