Steamy New Adult Happy Ending

Trigger* Romance

Trigger Warning: This book deals with the emotional trauma the one goes through after rape.

Trust in Me by Jennifer L Armentrout is considered a "novella" in the Wait for You series, but length wise, is very much a novel. In Trust in Me, it's the same story as Wait for You, but this time from Cam's perspective.

A friend once asked me how I could read novels that are essentially the same story, just from a different characters perspective. She thought it would be boring. Seeing as I re-read lots of books that I love, this has never been a problem for me. I love Jennifer Armentrout's work, so frankly, I doubt this will ever be an issue when it comes to this. I loved Wait for You. I adored Cameron and Avery's story. Not going to lie, I am kinda crushing on Cameron, so reading a book from his POV is easy. Moments where Avery was wondering what Cam was thinking, we get a glimpse at. I enjoy these alternating POV's, because we get a whole new level to the story. While sometimes it could be repetitive, it wasn't hard to get lost in the story once again.

If anything, seeing Avery through Cam's eyes makes her even more likable. And how can you not fall for Cam after reading this book? Even when he is frustrated with Avery, his love for her is obvious, as well as his level of respect for her boundaries. I loved the moments where he is with his friends, and family, parts of the story we were not privy to in Avery's side of the story. We get glimpses of the upcoming story between Jase and Theresa, and get to know some of the side characters just a little better.

I will say it again. I love alternate POV's on the same story. You can't go wrong by reading Cam's story in this book.
