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
WHAT DID I THINK: 3 out of 5 Stars
This can be read as a standalone, but some of it will better relate if you to read Taking Chances before you read this book.
This may have some spoilers if you have not read Taking Chances.
Taking Chances was one very interesting book/read for me. On one hand I loved it since it completely shocked me. I read it the first week it came out so I did not see one review. I avoided GR like a plague that week. I also “hated” TAKING CHANCES since it took away my favorite character.
My rating really has to do with the fact that I just did not like the heroine, Kennedy or “Moon” at all. She was just … there. I was disappointed. I wanted the best for Liam and to me (and this is my opinion) Kennedy was not the best.
I was also disappointed in the development of the characters. I just needed a little more. The story was not engaging. It felt like a repeat of many other romances I have read over and over involving one night stands. Same story, just different names. The same games were played with the same feelings retold. It was nothing new.
Kennedy and her twin, Kira, are moved to California after there has been a threat to their family. I did not care for Kennedy, but Kira was worse. A spoiled brat does not even describe that girl’s behavior. The behaviors of both of these characters were exhausting at times. I don’t even know why Liam wanted the heroine. I wish it was spelled out in the beginning because I did not see it or feel it. He had one night with her a year ago in Vegas. What was so amazing about her??? I did not get it. There was nothing unique about the story and the characters.

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.
