Jessica Alcazar
I love when an author writes a short story about a past couple in a series. It makes it more real to me. Yes, I know, it's still fiction, but it just makes that world seem more credible to me, and I just really enjoy it :)

We started the series Night Calls with Felix and Poppy. And now they're back :) It's short, but it's sweet and a lot of growth happens. And appropriately enough, trust. These two had incredible chemistry from day one and it still continues to be so and J.C. Valentine has a way

Ahhh Poppy and Felix. I loved seeing into their future!! This novella is jam packed with hot sex scenes and angst filled misunderstandings. I wanted to junk punch a certain somebody a couple of times!! A must read, for sure!!

I've read all of JC valentine's books and each one keeps getting better and better! Keep them coming and I'll keep reading!

Novella , provided by the author for an honest review!

Honestly, Ms Valentine once again does not dissapoint . "Trust" is a wonderful continuation of Poppy'sand Felix's story from her book Stranded, which I loved.
I am so glad she returned to their story I feel like I haves greater sense of closure and completion to their story their story line and I loved the way she did it !

3.5-4 Star Novella

You first meet Poppy and Felix in J.C. Valentines first book in the series Stranded (Night Calls #1) and see glimpses of them throughout the other books in the series. When reading Surrender to Love (Night Calls #3) you find out that Poppy believes Felix is cheating on her, so I couldn’t wait to read Trust to find out what was going on.

Received an ARR in exchange for an honest review.

We first meet Felix and Poppy during Stranded which was a fantastic Novella that showcased great chemistry between these two characters. In Trust, we see the remains of insecurity that linger from Poppy's last relationship. As Felix starts to behave oddly, everything within Poppy wants to trust in their love, to trust him. But some wounds never heal and the feeling of history repeating itself is just too strong to deny.

This is a nice little story to carry on this great series! I really like Felix and Poppy and was glad to read more about them, but maybe it was a little too short to feel deeply this time around. I was very proud of Poppy for standing her ground and walking out on Felix. His reasoning for the things that went on made sense, I suppose, but I just wasn't 100% sold on him this time and I think if the novella went a little beyond the make-up scene, I would have gotten there... Because I do love him ...more

I have been a complete fan of this series ever since I had read the first one not so long ago. I really do think that this author is bringing a breath of fresh air into the writing world because of their ability to write great stories that include many amazing details. All of the characters they create are done to an extreme level that you are not left wanting for more from them. The only thing you are left wanting more from is books from the author!

Not normally a fan of novellas because of the rushed story and lack of real grasping characters, I have to say this novella lacked absolutely nothing. If anything, it had just the right amount of suspense, intrigue and sex to make it a highly recommended must read from me!
I was seized from the first scene and couldn’t put it down until I was finished.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for a review.

This novella picks up around a year after "Stranded" ended and we see where Felix and Poppy are. Felix has been acting differently lately causing Poppy to doubt their relationship. She was screwed over by her ex so she automatically jumps to conclusions when she finds out he's been lying about working late. As the novella continues, we see the characters struggle to stay together. This series is so good at grabbing your emotions and I be

Trust... A heart wrenching Novella guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end! If one is already a Felix and Poppy fan then sharing Poppy's pain with wanting to believe and trust in Felix's love, devotion and commitment is inevitable! It is hard to hold on to Trust when everything is pointing towards lies and deception... even Felix's long time friends are having a difficult time with Felix's behavior. Should Poppy trust in Felix's love for her? Will Felix be able to p ...more

This is the second book in this series I have had the pleasure of reading. I now know that I will have to finish them all. I love J.C. Valentine's writing. Felix and Poppy are in a serious relationship. Poppy has a few trust issues and when Felix starts behaving differently all sorts of warning bells go off. I had a suspicion as to what Felix was up to and its so sweet when he finally comes clean. I loved this story and would highly recommend this amazing series to everyone. ...more

Omission can be as bad as deception and this is a hard lesson Felix learns. Poppy knows something is off with Felix but chooses to believe his explanation because she doesn't want to believe otherwise. This book is well written, their story will captivate and hold your attention till the very last page. I can't wait for the next book in this series. ...more

Felix and Poppy seem to have a great relationship, or so Poppy thought so until Felix starts lying to her about where he is or where he's going. She starts being suspicious of him and thinks he's cheating on her. She won't tolerate the cheating because her ex-husband was a cheater. So she's wondering what's up with Felix and him disappearing on her.

I'm sure this could be read as a stand-alone, but I really recommend reading it as part of the whole series. I love Poppy and I love Felix. I've been enjoying them since their first story Stranded, and have really enjoyed them as peripheral character in other full-length books in this series. I care about both of them, and I think that is why I have been a little disappointed in the two shorter stories they were given. Basically, I always want more.

I went into this blind to the fact that there is an actual book out about this couple. Usually with novella's you start reading them and you have no idea what's really going on because you haven't read the book that started it all. I didn't get that with this book at all. I think for me, reading this first, makes me want to go back more so and read how this couple came to be. So I do believe that's what I'm going to do next.

Trust begins or should I say is the continuation where Stranded has left us. Wherein Felix and Poppy continue on with their relationship. Their loving, funny, and trust issued relationship. As the title goes, their relationship is having a "Trust" test. I can't say I blame Poppy for having some ins

Continuing the story of Felix and Poppy, the first couple in the Night Call series. It was nice to go back to them and find out the rest of the story in this novella. Poppy was still having some trust issues because of her previous relationship and the fact that Felix is acting strange and lying to her. Poppy does not want to go through being cheated on again.

Felix is trying to keep a secret from Poppy and everyone. He knows its causing problems, but he refuses

This is a continuation of Poppy and Felix’s story which was left open at the end of the previous Night Calls book, Surrender to Love. This installment grips the reader with lots of different emotions and secrets being withheld. Thankfully none of those secrets is of a negative nature, and you have an idea of what is about to happen, but can’t be sure until it is revealed. Poppy and Felix are one of my favourite book couples and the steam factor between them d

Having never read the rest of this series this short novella launched straight into the story. Felix and Poppy are in a relationship and the sex is hot, but all of a sudden Felix starts going to work early and coming home late. Then Poppy discovers that he is not where he says he is. I had my suspicions of what was coming next but was surprised by what was actually going on. This is a short and sweet little novella and I would be tempted to read the rest of the

Can she trust him to love her and not cheat? Felix is keeping a secret. He is on a mission and it is ok because the end justifies the means.

Ok i'll admit this was the first J C Valentine book i've read and jumping into a novella that's part way through a series could have been very confusing.

But it wasn't. It was a great little story, that gave enough hints of their backstory that you didn't feel you were missing out. I very much enjoyed the authors writing style and will definitely pick something up of theirs again.

The twist in the tale I didn't really get, it didn't seem plausable, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the no

Felix, Felix, Felix … when will you learn. Poppy and Felix seem really happy then Felix's behavior starts to change. For Poppy this is a major red flag since her ex-husband cheated on her. As she tries to deal with her doubts, her worst fears appear to be realized. How will Felix fix his mistake?

I love all the characters in the Night Calls series and the fact that they pop up in each other's stories so you get to keep tabs on the entire group. I believe Bo is the un-sung hero in Trust!
