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?


~My Thoughts:

First of all, I would give this book 4.5 stars if I could because I liked it a bit more than Wait for You. 
Second, I never read a book that followed the same story but in a different point of view so this is is a first for me.
So, receiving this book for review from Edelweiss had me squealing a little bit. Okay, it had me squealing a lot. I was so glad that I got it, that I dove into it pretty much right away. And I regret nothing! 

Trust in Me gives us a chance to get inside of Cam's head. *swoons*. I loved to read about what he was thinking and trust me, it was a whole lot. Cam is a lot to handle even when I was just reading about him. But anyway... with reading Wait for You not too long ago the story was still fresh in my head but still there were some things that even when it was the same scenes as in Wait for You, I didn't expect. I was surprised by some of Cam's reactions and thoughts to both Avery and other things. I definitely saw a new side of him. He's even more amazing than I initially thought. At first with Wait for You when he kept asking Avery out I thought it was more playfulness on his side but I've learned that soon the playfulness, although not totally has faded away, he was more serious about her than I thought. We not only learn more about himself and what he really thoughts about everything going down with every but we also see a lot more about Jase and Ollie. I would lie if maybe learning more about Cam's friends wasn't a little bit favorite aspects of this book. It made me so excited for the upcoming books that will feature them. 
Also... Teresa and Jase? SUPER CUTE! 

The scenes that were new in this book were my favorites because I kept learning new things about Cam, his world, his friend, everything. Those were probably the things that kept me going. Though I must admit that I book like this that's being retold isn't my favorite in the whole wide world of books but it was nice to have been inside Cam's head. Were it any other less interesting (and hot) character than him or any other authors than Jennifer, I probably would've rated it less stars. But the thing with Jennifer is, she keeps you entertained, even with a book where the story is so familiar it was rocking. The woman just keeps going and going, writing awesome books, doesn't she? Gotta love her!


So in short, Trust in Me was a really great book. I loved being in Cam's head and seeing the whole story in his eyes. I was entertained the whole time and am now even more excited for the upcoming books in this series. I can't wait to find out more about these characters I know and love! Another awesome book by J. Lynn and I'm sure there's more to come.




Favorite Quotes:
Ollie had trashed our Xbox the weekend before, during a brutal showdown of Call of Duty.
Holy shit, Strawberry Shortcake just ran me over.
She swayed a little at the loss of support, and I almost reached for her again, but I valued my balls. One day I'd like to have a kid or some shit, and I had a feeling if I touched her again, that would not be in my future.
Avery was such a mystery to me; a paradox of innocence and allure—a mystery I was determined to solve.
