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?

"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
I have not read the other books in this series but I wasn’t confused at all but I do plan to read the others. I really liked this book. Kennedy and her twin Kira move from Florida to California because of some threat to them from when their uncle and father worked undercover as gang members. They could never have guessed how this move would change everything so much. One year ago while in Las Vegas with some friends Kennedy meet a man spent the night with him so continued to think about him for months. Kennedy has convinced herself that she doesn’t believe in love or happily ever afters because of something so went through when she was barely 18. This move has brought her face to face with the man from a year ago. Liam can’t believe he might get a second chance with the woman he calls Moon. He won’t let this chance slip away from him and plans to fight for Kennedy for as long as it takes. Kira doesn’t want to move and be away from her boyfriend Zane. No one in the family really likes Zane and thinks this move will be good for Kira. Kira cries and cries about Zane. Their relationship is more complicated than anyone knows. Is Kira really in love with him or is just with him so she won’t be alone. Will Kira get over being away from Zane? Will Kennedy give Liam a chance? Will Liam be able to break down Kennedy’s wall and get her to love again if she gives him a chance? This book was great. It was wonderfully written and the characters pull you in. I felt really bad for Liam as Kennedy just kept fighting him. Every once in a while she would forget to fight and they would have a wonderful time and then she would remember and put all the walls back up. I understood why Kennedy was doing it. She was so afraid to get hurt again. She once thought she had found the love of her life and then was hurt when he just left with no real reason or giving her a chance to try to change his mind. The girls’ parents have a great marriage and they both want what their parents have and that affects the way they handle their relationships. The twist was fantastic and made the book so much better. I hope there will be more books in this series in the future. This is the first book I have read my Molly but I will be reading more by her in the future.
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.
