This is a paranormal book but unlike other paranormal stories you aren't going to find vampires or shape shifters instead earthen healers and protectors and talking animals are what makes this book unique. Alex Conner receives her gifts from her grandmother and mother. She is a earthen healer and a rare and powerful one at that. Her life has not been easy and she has a lot of past hurt, abandonment and abuse issues that she has to deal with. She helps run a party business which she loves and is

I really am stunned that this is Parker Sinclair’s debut novel. She is a fantastic writer who pulls you in right from the start. I am usually not a fast reader, but I just couldn't put this book down. I started one afternoon and was finished by the next.

Alex Connor is an event planner who likes the night life and has a great group of coworkers/friends that she spends most of her time with. Besides being tall and beautiful, she's educated, successful, and quick witted with an overactive imaginati

Trust is the first book in the Alex Conner Chronicles. It is an Urban Fantasy based on a girl, Alex Conner. She is an Earthen Protector/Healer. She is the strongest of her people in many generations. With such strong power also comes people on the evil side wanting her power.
When Alex was a child, she was in foster care and her foster father, Steven, was one of the Evil ones. He abused her and she used her power to deal with him, sending him to an alternate dimension. The problem with that, is

This book felt like a trip...... Dunno what cookie's the Author had been munching on.... There were talking animals who became humans... or trees im not sure, the flashbacks then dreams within the flashbacks and dreams in the present.... It was another inception moment for me.....

There was no story until the last few pages, up to then it was Alex a extremely powerful earth healer and protector.... Although im still not sure what her actual powers are other than changing her appearance when she

I just finished Trust, the first book in the Alex Conner Chronicles by Parker Sinclair. I loved the premise of this story, it is very much a paranormal story that has a unique plot line. There are no shape shifters or a lot of mystical creatures. This is the story of a young girl who has special powers that she tries hard to hide from the people in her life. The story is told with a mix of flashbacks and present time events that all together tell the story of how Alex got to where she is now and ...more

This is a different spin on the paranormal world, instead of vampires and witches, this is about Earth magic. It is a totally different world that is under explored, I hope this changes with the likes of Parker Sinclair writing stories for us. This kind of story leads us to another realm where we get to meet Gaia the Earth Goddess and her loyal disciples. It is also the place where we can delve inside ourselves and find out who really are and what we mean to the world around us.

Being an adult in my late 20's, I enjoy reading teen fiction because of its popularity towards the supernatural and really thought this book was unique because it takes the magical elements that attract youthful imaginations and applies them to the more complicated, yet exciting life of young adulthood. It contains all elements of intrigue for an adventerous 20-something female reader: love, magic, sex, success, two highly attractive men interested in the same highly attractive woman, indecision ...more

If you like paranormal/urban fantasy books, Trust, written by Parker Sinclair, is a story that pulls you in and doesn't let go until the very last page. Alex Conner, is a strong female lead who you cannot get enough of. She is witty, sexy, strong, and mysterious. I am adding Parker Sinclair to my favorite list of authors, in line with Kellye Armstrong, Jeanine Frost, Karen Chance, Kaylana Price, and Kim Harrison. The only question I have is when will book 2 be released? ...more

Trust- Parker Sinclair

4-star review

Trust by Parker Sinclair is the first book in the Alex Conner Chronicles. This book has a really interesting and creative storyline that captured me from the start. It's a unique paranormal read as Alex is an Earthen Protector and Healer unlike the usual vampire, witch, etc. paranormal reads. This book is action-packed, dark, haunting, powerful and completely unexpected. I was kept on my toes from the very beginning until the very end.

Trust by Parker Sinclair is the first book in her Alex Conner Chronicles and it was a great run for the opener of a new series. Alex - Alexis to those in her former life - has had her trust broken so many times by those that she love that she feels like she can't trust anyone anymore. The urban fantasy angle of this book gave the dark and dangerous a new feel to it, I really connected with Alex and her attempting to reconnect with those around her. The world that Sinclair created for this series ...more

The first thing that drew me to this book was definitely the amazing cover. I've read quite a few paranormal books...But this one was a real surprise.... I love how Parker used the magic in Alex, not like any other paranormal book I've seen. The way the magic is connected to the earth was really interesting and something completely new.

I also love the fact that the MC is a bit older and already settled in the normal world. What also really intrigued me about this book was the journal entries tha

First let me state, I received an Advance Reader Copy, (ARC), but this in no way influences my review. I always leave an honest review.

OMG!!! This story is awesome. awesome. Alex is such a mess, but yet she's so strong. I laughed, & I cried through this story. So much going on, & I understand the feeling of not being able to trust. Your emotions, your views, love, friendship, all of it. This story will show you how this strong, beautiful woman learns to trust & love. I recommend this read. 5 Thu

Interesting new take on the fantasy front. Alex has an interesting life too. Started off a bit rough but shes getting her footing until the dreams/flashbacks start breaking into her everyday life. There's also the situation with Justin and Ryan. Can't wait to learn more about Ryan.
I liked the way this author wrote. It wasn't all doom and gloom all the time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

The right blend of 50 Shades meets fantasy...this book is a winner with its strong leading lady in Alex and her adventures in romance, mysticism, and self-discovery. The book reads easy and quickly pulls you into plot and character development. Looking forward to book 2!!

I'm going to start with saying that the cover of this book is absolutely gorgeous and partly the reason I was drawn to this book.

We travel with Alexis through her journal entries starting when she was young. The story goes from present and sometimes flashbacks, then the journal entries. I'm not a big fan of reading a story that takes me back to the main characters childhood quite as m
Trust (Alex Conner Chronicles #1) by Parker Sinclair is a unique take on urban fantasy.

I love it when authors step outside of the norm and take a chance. Like most overused genre's , urban fantasy has its own set of tropes and cliché's. This book isn't completely void of that, but it does rework the normal UF world setting and, the supernaturals. Shifter and vampires are not in this world. Instead we have earthen healers, talking animals and protectors. Now the hierarchy matches that or other U

Trust is the first book in The Alex Conner Chronicles. In this story you get to know Alex, about her past and how that past is affecting her present life. The way this book is written, it feels like you are kind of reading two books in one. The past (both distant and recent) are conveyed through journal entries, these pieces seem like they could have been written as a separate book, but you get the major points of her past that are important to the current story. The main part of the story line ...more

I’ve been reading a few authors for the first time recently. This has been both beneficial and a P.I.T.A. as I have a VERY long TBR list and now I am finding more authors and books to add to that list. Parker Sinclair is definitely one of those authors. And surprisingly for me so is this book series. I will admit that I am not a huge fan of ‘cliffhanger’ books. I’m a HEA kinda girl and those are the books I gravitate towards. But

Trust By Parker Sinclair is a great read that truly kept me on the edge of my seat. The good versus evil plot line was fascinating. Her take on the ways of Magic are refreshingly new.
I love Paranormal everything, and Paranormal Romance tops my Charts. Alex’s future depends on her making the right choices. But, she really has no data to work from. Parker Sinclair has created a wonderful world, populated by wonderful people. She has really delved into the darker psyche that resides in all of us

This was my first Parker Sinclair book to read, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The blurb sounded really interesting, so I figured it was a good bet.

Alex has secrets that she's been hiding. One is that she has power. Another is that she bound her foster father away when he was hurting her.

Ryan has even more secrets. He's there to watch over Alex, but she doesn't know what he is.

It's a really interesting premise. While there are a lot of stories that involve Earth magic, this isn't a version

This story was one that kept you reading to find out the answers to several questions. The main character has special powers, but you have no idea what they are because she was told to never tell her secret. Of course, you eventually learn the powers, but it is a buildup in each chapter. I love the theme of the story and the fact that besides the special powers many individuals could relate to the child. There are many instances where the grandparents step in to help out or take care of their gr ...more
