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?
Being a big fan of Molly McAdams I was looking forward to reading Trusting Liam (Taking Chances #2). It was going to be a crossover from two of her series that I had read and loved.
Due to a past heartache Kennedy Ryan’s walls are up, she doesn’t believe in love anymore and has rules when it comes to relationships. When Kennedy and her sister Kira unexpectedly have to move to California the last person she expected to meet was Liam the guy who she spent one night with a year ago. Someone who she has never forgotten and made her break her rules.
“I was stubborn, independent and loved control, but Liam had me giving up all control to him within in minutes in Vegas”
When Liam Taylor is asked by his boss to entertain his nieces the last person he expects to see is Kennedy the girl he met a year. Even though they only share one night together, Liam has never forgotten that night or that girl. Now he is not going to let her go again.
“Whether or not Kennedy was ready or wanted it, I was getting ready to chase the girl who was already consuming my mind”
The storyline was about second chances, trust, making choices, leaving your past behind, and secrets. I like Kennedy and Liam together you, could feel the connection that they had. I like watching Kennedy slowly let her walls down, and with the help of a persistent Liam start to believe in love again.
“I’m terrified of the way he makes me feel just by being near him”
As always with a book from Molly it's not all plain sailing for Kennedy & Ryan. Molly likes to throw in some twists & turns to keep up guessing. There was a feeling of history repeating itself once a secret was revealed, but thankfully it didn't end in a way that Molly is going to start receiving a new batch of hate mail. ;) There was a sweet epilogue that left a smile on my face so job done!!
“I am perfectly capable of loving someone, I’ve just never wanted to love anyone one until I met you”
Liam Taylor and Kennedy Ryan are children from characters from the Taking Chance series and Forgiving Lies, and I like how Molly brings it all together. I loved catching with the now older characters from both series. I will say it took a little bit of time for me to get my head around the fact that they are now my age!! Lol
Overall, I like Trusting Liam; it was heartfelt story that also made me laugh. I like Molly’s writing style and how she always emotionally draws you into the story and the characters I will say and don’t’ hate me, but I don’t see Charlie as Chase let alone Liam so I had to keep pushing that image out of my head. However, that being said, it didn’t take away my enjoyment of the book as we all have different images in our minds of what characters look like.
Trusting Liam can be read as I standalone, but I do think if you can read both series before hand. Just to get the background, meet the parents, and to understand the reason behind Molly’s dedication. FYI… I was always #Team Brandon ;)
If you liked the Taking Chance and the Forgiving Lies series then, this one is worth a read.
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 grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. 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.
