This story is about hurt, anger, trust and love. Kiera is the leading lady and has had more hurt in her life then she can take. She relies heavily on her cousin Scotty. He is her rock making sure she gets by day to day feeling safe. Scotty tries to encourage Kiera to enjoy life again but she still feels guilt over her past. Is she forever broken?

Liam hot male, MMA fighter who buries himself in fighting and meaningless sex. He has a painful past. Can he continue living like this way? He makes a lot of money using his anger in his fights. He is driven by the terrible events in his life. Is he forever broken?

Kiera and Liam meet through Scotty. It’s awkward at first as Kiera is not comfortable around strangers, especially guys. She notices Liam is hot.
Liam is drawn to the mysterious shy girl who hides most of the time in baggy tops. Eventually though slow, they build a friendship but Liam wants more, but he has to gain her trust.

Kiera begins to trust Liam and they embark on a relationship but it isn’t simple by any means as they are both haunted by their pasts and Liam harbours a secret from Kiera that ultimately could tear them apart.
There is angst and tears between the pair and surprisingly enough, although Liam is a fighter, he is sensitive at times. There are sex scenes as they embark on a relationship and they do develop strong feelings for each other.

This is a series which doesn’t finish on a cliff-hanger as such but you are left wondering where the story will take you next. The author deals with a delicate issue that affects many people sensitively. I, for one, hope Kiera and Liam manage to get past their issues and get the happiness they deserve as the series progresses.

As a lover of dark reads, I couldn’t wait to read Trust. It’s a crude, harsh read and what anyone who likes this kind of genre would expect when they one-click. However, it is advisable to read the blurb beforehand as it covers extremely delicate subjects such as abduction, rape, torture and slavery. But what I liked about this story were the really tender moments between the two protagonists. Even though the circumstances they’re both in are more than dire, and the things our hero, yes, I do say our hero because he’ll become yours, has to do, won’t stop you from connecting to these two lovely characters, She is the perfect heroine, and I really hope that he will be her knight in shining armour because these guys or going to have to go through thick and thin before she accepts the person he really is.

Gwen is happy. She has loving parents, a good-looking boyfriend she’s not one hundred percent sure of, she loves high school and participating as a cheerleader. Life couldn’t be more hunky-dory for this carefree young lady with no worries in the world. However, one seemingly insignificant decision will change her very existence forever. There will be moments when she’s on the verge of breaking down, there will be moments so stressful for the reader that you’ll have to come up for breath, moments of utter sadness, and moments of elation.

Lance is absoeffinglutely gorgeous! To say he’s sexy would be an understatement. Goodness me, he’s amazing! This man has a huge problem with a capital P though! Whether he can solve it remains to be seen in a fast moving story full of angst, hatred and a good dose of vengeance.

The ringleader for want of a better word, is influential, deceiving and despicable. Who is this man that has no heart and treats his subordinates and his own son in such a way that you’d take pleasure in strangling him with your own hands? Nevertheless, he trusts the wrong person and the only way you’re going to find out what happens is by reading the book!

The storyline is a well organised one. All the characters are so vividly described that you’re either going to love them or loath them. The sex scenes are explicitly described and I must say that the author is an expert because she really did have me glued to the book! A big plus in this dark standalone novel with a difference is without a doubt, the HEA! The only tinsy-winsy issue I had with this book was the punctuation. This book is marvellous and if it had been edited correctly, you would have made one reader ecstatically happy! Notwithstanding, I enjoyed it immensely and wouldn’t think twice about reading more by this author. Bravo Ms. Tower!
