**** 4 Sweet Untrusting Stars ****

ARC provided by Grand Central Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second book in the series "Second Chances" but it is not a cliff-hanger.  I feel that the book had a hard time starting off but once it got started - it flew by and I was anticipating the next move.

In my honest opinion, Daniel, was the star of this book.  He made the story interesting and kept me wanting to know what psycho thing he was going to do next.

There is not much I can say about Trusting You, that I haven't said before about any of the books written by LP Dover. They are all phenomenal. Trusting You is a well written story that you won't want to put down, there is just so much excitement through out the book that you are kept in a trance from the beginning to the end. I think Trusting You will most likely be my fave out of this series, it's spicy and oh so HOT!! I would love to claim Brett for my self but LP Dover has already said dibs ...more

The more L.P. Dover books I read, the more I want more!

Melissa was a girl I could identify with. She was down to earth and feisty. I loved the line near the end when Daniel says how she turned the hose on him and the woman who he had taken to bed with him when Melissa caught him cheating. I nearly cheered out loud!

And I enjoyed watching her find her second chance at love. Brett was sweet, and though the falling in love seemed too fast, I think these two were meant for each other. The rocky mome

I had been looking forward to this book since the author announced that there was going to be another book in the series! I knew that it wasn't going to be about the main characters that were in the first book, but that this book was actually going to be about a character that made an appearance in the first book! I actually forgot where this character came in, but as soon as it was mentioned in this book I remembered! I wasn't too sure on the plot of this book at the beginning, but as it progre ...more

Trusting You by LP Dover

Rating 5*****

This book was provided as an ARC for honest literary review.

I have very high expectations when I open the cover of book from this author. Each of her novels I have read posses vivid imagery, intricate plots and characters that stay with me as a reader. This is one of her best so far.
I immediately identified with Melissa. Once you come out of a broken relationship later in life, the baggage comes with you. Learning to trust again is about the hardest thing
Not having read the first book, I wasn't sure if I should start this one before I read the other. The blurb on this book excited me, so I jumped on it. Damn, I'm glad I did! I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything, as it can be read as a stand alone. The characters from the first book make appearances, but they are more background characters.

This author can seriously write some steamy moments that literally affect your breathing. I loved Melissa and Brent and was happy to see them get a

What. A. Book. I can’t help but fall even more in love with books that are written by L.P. Dover. She continues to grow with each book that she publishes and I am looking forward to see where she continues to go.
Trusting You is a really great book in the Second Chances series. It is a stand-alone (the first book in the series doesn’t have to be read to understand or read this one) novel, but I did enjoy glimpses of characters from the first book in the series, Love’s Second Chance.
So, there is

One of Leslie's best books yet, Melissa I loved how feisty she was, "okay, fine. I'll go, but it's not a blind date. I'm going for you and you only since you asked me to. I'll meet your friend and that's it. I don't want any expectations you hear me?" Brett s*** that man is just a total beefcake! "he was breathtaking. Dressed in a simple button down shirt, he also wore a pair of dark denim jeans that slightly hung off his hips, showing off his muscular thighs; the same thighs I dug my nails into ...more

Breathing in his scent, I sighed and collapsed into his arms. "I trust you."

-I received an arc copy of this book for an honest review.-

WOW. Yes I am a HUGE fan of L.P. Dover, her Forever Fae series is genius. This is the first book of hers I read that wasn't paranormal and it was brilliant.

Okay so Melissa Ashford has been through hell with her ex husband, that cheated on her. *insert sad face here* But Melissa is a strong woman and she picked up her life and moved on.

Melissa Ashford has just left her jerky cheating husband and moved into her own place. She is finally on her own and happy for a change. She is a high school teacher by day and a chick who bounces from bars and one night stands at night. This life is not making her happy either. There has to be a happy middle.
Her friend wants to set her up with her husband's coworker. Little do they know, she already slept with him and ran away in the middle of the night.

Now Melissa is back and face to

I received the ARC of this book in return for my honest opinion. In the beginning, I wasn't so sure I'd enjoy this book, and then it grabbed me and carried me along! Melissa is a divorcee, whose cheating ex-husband wants her back - and he will go to extremes to do so. Brett is an architect who works for Mel's best friend's husband. She initially met Brett in a bar and had a one night stand. When her bestie Korinne talks her into meeting this great guy she believes is Mel's perfect match, she is ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Melissa is a 28yr old who has been hurt in the past and holds her heart in a steel box afraid of men and the heartbreak they can bring. Brett is a man who was out and celebrating his new job when their paths first crossed and now cannot get Melissa out of his head. Fate seems to have its own plan with these two involving Melissas along with Bretts worst thought nightmares. The "adult scenes" (this is NOT a book for those under 18) are HOT AND HEAVY with so much

I loved this book it was sexy, hot and had just enough drama in it without being angsty! I loved Brett he was so hot, sexy, loving and very protective of Melissa! Melissa was a hurt divorcee and her ex husband was a complete jerk who would stop at nothing to try and get back into Melissa's good graces! It really was just a sweet and loving romance between two people who had ...more

LP Dover didn't disappoint, Congrats!!! What an amazingly written story, I was hooked from the first page.
What if the life you once lived wasn't what it seemed? Do one night stands really turn into anything more?
Melissa was married, has a job she loves, financially stable, great friends and family. She has it all pretty much until one night she has a one night stand and that's all it was.. Until few months later their paths cross and become serious.

No surprise here.. I loved this book..
Wow, Melissa & Brett were magnificent. From beginning to end these two were on a sizzling hot ride.
The attraction and chemistry between then was divine.
Daniel the ex. What a despicable human being. With his get richer scheme he did not care who he hurt.
Trust a key component to any relationship. Melissa doesn't trust easy not after what Daniel did. But she must learn trust Brett.
Just go grab it. You won't be able to put it down..

A little mystery with my romance please, absolutely! This second installment in the Second Chance series was great. Loved Melissa and Brett. Their trust in each other was incredible. As it was nice to have Gallen and Korrine make appearances, it was the introduction of Mason and Claire that got me excited. I hope to see more of them.
This book had a great mix of mystery and whole lot of romance.

This book was just ok for me. Melissa has a crazy ex who wants her back for reasons unknown to her. Brett is an architect. They meet, start a relationship, the ex comes back, kidnaps her, you can guess the rest.

The book was ok, but pretty predictable.
