After the loss of her parents, Allison Scott spent the past year of her life being emotionally disconnected, and afraid of the loss that comes from loving someone.
Allison is finally ready to find the person she used to be when she embarks on her getaway vacation to Miami. In Miami, she meets Damien Wales—a man who will stop at nothing to make Allison his—in every way possible.
Being heavily pursued by Damien, forces Allison to decide whether or not to open herself up again. Her attraction to him is undeniable, and she finds herself being brought back to life by the mere presence of him. But does she truly know enough about Damien to let herself be open for that kind of pain again?
Damien's tragic past has left him a cold and distant person. However, the moment he sees Allison, he's inexplicably drawn to her. She brings out a side in him that he thought was lost forever.
Damien’s dark past starts to collide with the present in a way he never thought possible. He's now forced to do everything he can to keep Allison in his life as she learns about his past.
Will both Damien and Allison be able to put aside their pasts and learn to trust each other?
Once in the lobby, I head outside to the beach, and a clean, salty scent greets me and wraps around me. After removing my flip-flops, I squish the sand in between my toes. The scenery brings happy memories, and I welcome them as I remember when my family used to head to the beach for long weekend getaways. It’s good to think about the memories and not feel like I am being swallowed up by the sadness that normally accompanies the thought of my parents.
Making my way down the shoreline, I enjoy the peaceful feeling of having no expectations. It’s just the crashing waves, my camera, and me. In the distance, I see some dolphins tormenting a seagull. They seem to be playing a keep-away game. I prepare my camera and adjust the settings. It’s a professional digital camera with a wide-angle zoom lens that my parents had bought as my birthday present after I finished my first year of college.
I begin taking shots from different angles as I try to capture contrasting lights from the sky. There’s something magical about taking an image that will help me remember all the smells, feelings, and thoughts I had in that exact moment of time. It’s like freezing a piece of history that can never happen in the same way again.
As I start walking, I think back to my apartment, which is covered with pictures I’ve taken, memories I have made, and moments I will cherish.
“Ow!” Oh my gosh! I got so captivated in the moment that I almost ran someone over in the process. My eyes automatically shut from the impact. I decide not to open them as I take stock of how hard this guy’s body feels. Crap, my shoulder hurts from hitting him.
“Shit.” The voice is deep, raw, and powerful.
Now is when I have to face this total stranger and admit that I made a total idiot of myself because I was distracted. Um, yeah, I totally rock. He did not sound pleased either. Well, who would be when some crazy person rams into you out of the blue? It’s time to face that inevitable moment when I wish I could just fast forward, so I don’t physically have to live through it.
“I’m so sorry. I was gazing out to the ocean, and I didn’t see you.” When I look up into the eyes of the stranger, I am immediately frozen into place from the deep blue gazing back at me. They are the purest blue pair of eyes I have ever seen. Thank goodness I got that last sentence out. Right now, my brain has completely stopped working, and I am not even sure I can process anything of sound mind.
Mr. Blue Eyes has black hair flopping in that sexy way. My fingers want to run through it as I pull his mouth down to mine. His lips look to be firm yet soft. His angular jaw is something I could spend hours—
Holy shit! I shake my head to stop my train of thought as I turn ten shades of red. Did he just ask me something? “Um, sorry, what did you say again?” Oh, kill me now.
“I said, do you always go to such extremes to get attention from guys you’re interested in talking to?” His eyes are dancing with excitement.
Just then, I realize that he hasn’t let go of my upper shoulders from when he reached out to grab me. My skin is on fire at the spots where he’s touching me. I’m confused by my reaction, and it causes me to completely miss what he said…again. “What?”
“Are you seriously asking me to repeat myself for a third time?” He’s says jokingly.
Oh, that smile. Would it be weird to start fanning myself? “Um, no…I mean, um…”

I really enjoyed reading Trust Me by Kristin Mayer. It is an amazing book with a very interesting story line that had my attention right from the beginning.
We follow the story of Allison Scott, a young woman who has had a really rough year emotionally dealing with loss and heartaches. A tragedy happened in her past that turned her life upside down. It took her a long time to deal with the loss and to be able to go on. Allison is now ready to take that step of moving forward in her life so she goes on a vacation to Florida.
While on vacation, Allison is on the beach taking some pictures and that is when she accidentally runs into Damien. She notices how handsome he is and her heart goes pitter patter. She was speech less and didn’t know what to say so Damien helped ease her nervousness and strikes up a conversation with her. She had an awesome evening with him just talking. Ever since that day, there has been a spark between them even though they just met.
This is the beginning of Allison and Damien’s journey. They will go through a lot with each other as their feelings continue to grow. Will those feelings lead into a serious relationship?
Trust Me is book 1 in the Trust Series and Kristin Mayer has done a fabulous job writing it. I am really looking forward to reading the sequel when it is released. It is a must read so I definitely recommend it to my friends to check it out.
I give this awesome book 5 Dandy's!!
Kristin Mayer is a wife, a proud mother, and a full-time Analyst and Import Manager. Since an early age, she has always enjoyed reading and writing. While visiting her father one weekend, he suggested that she should take up writing again. With family and a career, she didn’t give it a lot of thought, until a story entered her mind and wouldn’t leave. It just kept forming and developing over a couple of months.
At the beginning of 2013, she decided to sit down and write it all down, but she kept it to herself. One sentence developed into two, and before she knew it, she had the makings of a novel.
Kristin tries to live life to the fullest during every moment. She loves to travel and meet new people. She holds a degree in International Business and uses it daily in her job. Kristin now adds “author” on her list of jobs, and feels very blessed and thankful.
