The #1 New York Times and USA Today best-selling phenomenon
Some things are worth waiting for….
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at that fateful Halloween party five years ago - an event that forever changed her life. What she never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself.
Some things are worth experiencing....
Cameron Hamilton is six feet, three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make Avery want things she believed had been irrevocably stolen from her. Getting involved with him is dangerous. Yet ignoring the simmering tension that sparks between them - and brings out a side of her she never knew existed - is impossible.
Some things shouldn't be kept quiet....
But when Avery starts receiving threatening e-mails and phone calls, she's forced to face a past she wants to keep buried and acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. If the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface with one less scar? And will Cam be there to help her?
And some things are worth fighting for....

With more than 1600 audio books to hitchhike along with, I've realized only now that I started "reviewing"...boy I need to catch up!
This was such a good listen! We've all got something in our past that we regret, some aren't that serious but for everyone...there's always a "what if I had done this instead" playing in the back of our heads and you can't deny that. Now I've listened to many angsty type romances and sooooo many of them have me irritated by the main female character and how stupid she seems by not saying anything until its too late. With this, although there are moments of a little frutration, the author made sure to acknowledge the idiocy, which in some strange reason helped smooth over the moments. In the past I've had the books where I was so irritated in the repitition of her angst that I put the book down for a bit and just walked away...I mean ok, something bad happened, I totally understand - or I would just skip over half a chapter to get past the annoyance. BUT - with this story, it kept moving along...it didn't have me banging my head on how the dark past was holding her back over and over and over like some authors. I felt the frustation with here and not at her....that was a nice change. She has a past, he has a past, but they both are trying to get through it to find a happy place again. Kuddos! Now onto the next in this series yay!
This is a great love story about two college students. Both of them had bad high school experiences that made them who they are. Loved it!
I really liked the story as a book and I liked ot hear it too.
Though I doesn't like the way the speaker is lowering her voice when she speaks the part of the male figur - she sounds like a mafia boss.
This is a story without this typical hero a la 50 shades of grey and the million books copying it. Finally a male hero who can live well without spanking someone.
Plus: he is just a human beeing and not super-natural. What relief.
If you find Mr. Right, hold on tight.
And trust in him to help you through your darkest hours.
Love the book and the narration.
Avery's visit to Cam's home during Thanksgiving break.
I would like a narration of Trust in Me that is English also. They all have narration except that one.
Good romance with a relevant back story.... just wish there were more sex lol. Guess this is more of a YA book. Love this author's sense of humor. Love the Wicked series by this author, steamyer.
I loved how this book was so true to real life. In real life bad things happen to good people, and it takes those people a while to get over what happened, if they ever do. JLA didn't scurt around the bad parts, she put them into detail. I have read quite a few books where the main character gets really close to being sexually assaulted, and their knight in shining armor comes to save them. In real life not everyone has a knight, and people sadly get assaulted all of the time. Jennifer tells a good story of what it is like living with something like that happening to you. I love how real it felt.
When Avery finally comes clean with Cam about everything. (thank god!!)
I loved Cam so much. Cam was just so cute in how he chased Avery, and so sweet in the way he understood what happened to her. If only there were actual human males who were this swoon worthy in real life. *sigh* I always fall in love with JLA's male leads. She does such a good job in painting a good picture. One of my favorite things about Jennifer's writing is her detail. I get so frustrated when I am reading a book and I don't even know the main characters hair color. Her books are nothing like that. They always have so much detail that makes the story so vivid in your head.
Cam was my favorite, but Avery was the most memorable. She grew from everything that happened to her. She may have been a coward in the beginning, but she well than makes up for it at the end.
This book will go down as a favorite. (as if JLA could write anything that I wouldn't love) I did get so infuriated with Avery a lot. She had so many opportunities to tell Cam everything, and I was so anxious waiting for it. I hate for things to be dragged out like that, but it stayed true to reality. In a book, pretty pictures are painted for the readers, but we get the raw emotion in this one. I can imagine that something like that isn't easy to talk about or tell to others, so I'm glad she tortured us with suspense. It was well worth it.
second time i've listened to it. Cam has to be the sweetest book boyfriend ever. Narrator did a great job and added to the enjoyment. Worth a listen...
"Absolutely brilliant and faultless"
This is a truly fantastic new adult/ young adult romance novel. The dialogue and chemistry between the two main characters in particular was excellent. The language used by Avery and Cam in both conversation and thought was spot on - it felt like 19/20 year olds. In a lot of these types of books the writers are usually 'older' and fail to get the language down. It kept me hooked throughout. Great story and great pace. Just the right amount of tender moments and sex scenes. As perfect to a new adult romance as I've ever gotten. Well recommended.
