Review: Trust in Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“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 this 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. What will it take to 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?”

This is a New Adult novel.

I read Wait for You last week and I absolutely loved it. It was fun and full of fluffy but at the same time, it was an eye rolling romance. The plot was awesome and I loved the pace. I thought that Cam was such an interesting character and I was so excited to be able to read the same story from Wait for You but in Cam’s perspective. I didn’t really have any expectations so I can’t really say if Trust in Me is better than I thought I would be or if I’m disappointed.

Cam as a character is surprisingly wonderful. He’s not controlling, bossy, or even a little bit possessive. I looked long and hard for some sort of controlling or possessive trait but he had not a single one. He treated Avery like an adult, like she was his equal. He let her make her own decisions and never tried to change her mind when he didn’t agree with her. And because of that, Cam will forever be one of my favorite characters in literature. If more male characters were like him, the Young Adult and New Adult genres would be way more advanced. I wish I could tell every author in the world to look at the outstanding character that Jennifer L. Armentrout has created and learn something from her.

Reading the same story twice but from different perspectives is really interesting. It fun to see little things that would mean more to Cam than it did Avery and vice versa. I’m not sure who’s perspective I enjoyed reading from more because both characters are so vastly different. I could relate more to Avery but Cam has a really great way to seeing the world. Jennifer Armentrout nailed writing from both gender’s  perspectives.

At times I felt a tiny bit bored because the dialogue would be really repetitive. It’s unstandable because it is the same story but it was also a little annoying because I had just read Wait for You just days earlier. A few times I would speed read the dialogue because I knew what was being said. I should have given myself a bigger gap between each book.

I definitely think that Trust in Me could stand on its own. You don’t have to read Wait for You before Trust in Me.

Overall, I really enjoyed Trust in Me. It was extremely interesting to read from a guy’s perspective and Cam is such a great character. . It was fun and full of fluffy but at the same time, it was an eye rolling romance. The plot was awesome and I loved the pace. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone looking for a quick, fun NA read.

    Great Review. I love JLA writing. This is the only book in the Wait for You series that I haven’t read. I have loved them all. Glad you loved both books.
