Trust (Dark Romance) [NOOK Book]

Overview

Gwen

 

When I close my eyes, begging my mind to block out the horrors going on around me, forcing myself to ignore the aches in virtually every inch of my abused body, I can still hear the cheers of the audience as I'm lifted into the air by the other cheerleaders.  For those few brief moments, I remember toppling from the top of the pyramid and I feel like I'm flying, I'm free, and nothing can hurt ...

Overview

Gwen

 

When I close my eyes, begging my mind to block out the horrors going on around me, forcing myself to ignore the aches in virtually every inch of my abused body, I can still hear the cheers of the audience as I'm lifted into the air by the other cheerleaders.  For those few brief moments, I remember toppling from the top of the pyramid and I feel like I'm flying, I'm free, and nothing can hurt me.

But, I was wrong…

How long would it take before they stopped missing me; stopped looking; before I was forgotten about completely? A month? Six months? A year? I’m no longer a person. I’m a commodity.

Lance


I have a plan, years in the making. It’s perfect – foolproof. All I need is to keep myself focused on the big picture – my ultimate goal. But then she arrived…

She tests my patience and my will. She angers and frustrates me, making the darkness within scream to be released. I want to ignore her, but I can’t. I need to let her go, but can’t seem to allow her to be sent away.

Damn her, she’s going to ruin everything…

    ¿You¿ve been taken.¿  Trust was actually a good read. I had my

    “You’ve been taken.” 

    Trust was actually a good read. I had my doubts but with a synopsis like that I just had to take a chance on it. So glad I did! 

    The story:
    Gwen Anderson had it all: Good looks, a loving family and star lacrosse boyfriend, as well as a bright future. That is, until she was abducted and made a slave.

    “I’m no longer a person. I’m a commodity. Gwen Anderson is dead and slave number 342 has taken her place.” 

    Now in a world where humanity is at a loss and your best hope is to either: 1) endure the physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse 2) be sold 3) AND/or end up dead

    Will Gwen be able to escape and make it out alive while not putting her life and those she loves' lives at jeopardy? Or break and face the same the same dismal fate as many before her? 

    “The only way you get out of here is when you’re sold. Of if you’re dead. The only choice have is how easy or hard life can be for you while here.” 

    Now enter: Lance Winters: “The Boss’s son” and next in line to his father's underground business. Deadly handsome and secretive by nature, he has a past and an agenda of his own. But when Gwen steps into the picture, his resolve is shot to hell. 

    Gone is the cold, indifferent shell of a man he once was and now an overprotective, remorseful, 'Savior Lance' has taken place. 

    How will Lance must figure out how to execute his plans while saving the girl he loves? Will his and Gwen’s forbidden romance be able to withstand the true terrors and repercussions they’re about to unleash? 

    And Gwen. Will she be able to save the other slaves? 

    “He pulled me into his arms and I welcomed his embrace. But even as he held me I couldn’t help but think about the girls downstairs. Those girls didn’t have anyone to fight for them. I had to do something, I just had no idea what it was.” 

    What about Lance's dad and the rest of the individuals involved in kidnapping and trafficking women for profit? Will she and Lance be able to stop the real monsters behind this heinous crime organization? And will they ever life a normal life once again? Read and you will find out!

    “I took your life from you.”
    I shook my head. He may have been part of the organization that had taken me, but he hadn’t.
    “No. You saved me.” 

    My thoughts: So over all, I really liked this read. It did need to pick up on the pacing at times and used a little more action on it but all and all it was good. My biggest criticisms though stem from the instant attraction that they have and the ending. I hate insta-love relationships and chemistry that is not expanded on. I just wasn’t 100% sold on “Gweance.” More like, 75% maybe. I mean, I couldn’t find an exact connection between them other than Lance was drawn to her innocence and purity to which he had lost long ago; and Gwen liking him because he was handsome and nice to her.

    As for the ending: it could have been edited out because it was random and unnecessary. Everything was good and then that little “update” at the end popped up and I was like, “okay, that was nice. But was totally unneeded.”

    All and all though, a decent exposure to the world of human trafficking and of what happens when you develop Stockholm syndrome and fall in love with your captor. Okay well, the Stockholm syndrome comment was a bit harsh on Lance, but as he had put it in the story, he’s guilty by “association”!

    Trust me guys, this one is one heck of a sensual and gritty read! You will be kept constantly wondering who will make it out alive and who will not? As well as, what will be the outlook for Gwen and Lance IF they do escape?

    Great job Ms. Terry Towers!

    This is a very disturbing book. I stopped reading about 1/4 of the way through. It's violent, terrifying, and upsetting. One character, a young woman is murdered, and the scene where her throat is slit is very graphic. It's a misnomer to classify this as an erotic romance. Please don't waste your time and money on this one.
