Review originally posted at Sinfully.

4.5 stars

The story picks up right after the end of Connection. There was a tenuous happiness and start to the relationship both men had been fighting, but with the amount of issues Jeremy struggles with, there was no expectation that there would be smooth sailing. Jeremy and Evan navigate lots of ups and downs from the moment the book opens.

What should have been the start of a new chapter for Evan and Jeremy comes quickly crashing down as the men wake up and

I received an ARC from the author.

All too often when I read a romance I’ll finish the story and sit back thinking ‘yeah! Nice! But what happened next?’ Because that’s the thing with romances, isn’t it? You read two hundred pages of two men trying to overcome all their issues so they can be together, get to spend twenty pages with them while they declare their undying love for each other and then the story ends and you’ll just have to believe the happy ever after really happened. And while this i

Ohhhh……. I really love this author, and “Trust” is the perfect end to the perfect series.
Jeremy stole my heart – I couldn’t stop it, I’m always been a sucker for complex and struggling characters.
At the end of “Connection” we left Evan and Jeremy “together”, but it was obvious to everyone that it wasn’t going to be easy. In “Husband”, the 4th book in the Equal Series, Jeremy comes across as a very strong and confident sort of person, but it’s a façade which he hides behind, he has fears and inse

4.5 stars

rust picks up right where Connection left off. Jeremy and Evan are in bed together. Evan is blissfully happy, but Jeremy? He’s still suffering from his insecurities, and when Evan runs his fingers along his scars, he completely freaks out. He leaps out of bed, telling Evan, “Don’t fucking touch me!” Breaking Evan’s heart, Jeremy declares their night together a mistake and even tells him that they can’t be friends, and maybe they never even were. Naturally, Evan is

Brigham Vaughn has a way with heartbreak! In Trust we truly are taking a ride on the relationship roller coaster.

First off, Connection is book 1 and you need to read that before Trust because Trust begins where Connection ends... The next morning. It's important you know that.

That said... So, Evan and Jeremy... these boys! They are extremely frustrating. I wanted to beat them over the head so many times when I was reading this. Other times I wanted to hug them and tell them to take a deep breath

This story picks up right after Connection ended. Evan and Jeremy have finally (finally) got enough of their shit together and soon they will be off dancing into the sunset with nary a care in the world.

What? You don’t believe me?

Yeah, that was probably a bit too much to expect.

So, if you’ve read the blurb (or have even a passing experience with sequels) you’d have guessed that book two brings with it a whole bag of problems for Evan and Jeremy. Which really shouldn’t surprise anyone since they

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

I’m going to sort of guess that anyone reading this will have read Connections. If you haven’t, I would recommend that you read that before reading Trust—Trust directly follows Connections and I wouldn’t say it’s a stand-alone novel. (It’s not a great horror to have to read Connections if you haven’t already :-) ).

I have been reading a lot of my one of my favorite genres lately, Regency romances. What, you might ask, does that

This is the sequel to Connection, where Evan and Jeremy first meet. That story ended on a very tenuous happily for now, more of a happy for this minute. As we start Trust, we see that assuming those HFNs turn out great isn’t always the case. In this continuation, we begin with Jeremy being the world’s biggest jerk. I honestly think that this scene would have worked better as part of the previous book, or that the books were combined, because for me enough time had passed between the two books fo ...more

I have been following Jeremy's story from the beginning. I first knew of him while enjoying a little May-December romance novella that was supposed to stand alone by the name of Equals. Here we are six books later and maybe just maybe Jeremy will be able to get a happily ever after.

I was a beta for this book.

I fell in love with Evan first, Jeremy took me a while, but in the end my love for both these characters is deep and strong. This is the story of how they overcame their obstacles to learn how to trust each other and themselves, and to forge the connection we all hope to find in life.
Evan has lived a life without love, without connection to others, he’s not sure how to change that, but he wants to try with Jeremy. Jeremy once had connections that he wasn’t ready for, b

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I have two confessions to make: the first being that I haven't yet read the first book in this series, Connections, where the two main characters, Evan and Jeremy, begin their relationship. However, I will be putting it on my Kindle imminently as I so want to see how they came together in the first place.I feel that this book can be read as a standalone, as I enjoyed the story immensely, even without the benefit of k

2016 has been great for m/m romance so far...I've just read two AMAZING top shelf-keeper books in the same week!

And to the author - the wait was TOTALLY worth it! Evan and Jeremy's story was beautiful, emotional, REAL, and lovely. I'm so glad that it wasn't rushed together and pushed in 1 book, and that the author really wanted to make sure we got the best story from her. And we completely did!

This picks up RIGHT where book 1 ends, so you definitely have to read that one first at minimum...but I

I fell in love with Evan when Russ & Stephen met him in Partners and that love only deepened when he became one half of the feature couple of the author's spin-off duology Evan and Jeremy. I will be honest and admit I had my doubts about Jeremy when he was introduced as Stephen's ex, generally exes cause strife wherever they go, but not this ex. Jeremy really begins to heal in Trust but it doesn't come easy and Evan finds it harder to let go of Jeremy and move on when the man pushes him away. I ...more

I just devoured this book. The first book left us thinking Evan and Jeremy were together. This one gave the aftermath of the HFN ending of the first book. It was rocky and sweet at the same time watching the two of them work through their problems and become a solid couple. I liked how Jeremy's problems aren't just easily solved and he has to work at them and how he isn't always right. These two are such a sweet couple and I can see me re-reading this series again soon. ...more

This is part 2 of Evan and Jeremy's story and is a very satisfying conclusion! Each of these men has their own damage to bring to this relationship. Somehow, through a lot of love and a fair measure of anguish, their relationship heals not only them, but contributes to their friends' lives in positive ways. I very much enjoy reading Ms. Vaughn's work. ...more

I absolutely LOVED TRUST! LOVED it! It surprised me at every turn and I truly felt apart of Jeremy and Evan ' s struggle for their HEA. Beautifully written with all our favorite past characters playing their part to help this couple come together. TRUST was nothing like I excepted and everything I wanted it to be! Fantastic! ...more

Loved it. The second part of connections. It had trust, struggles, love, friendship and so much more. So glad it was two books it would have lost so much if it was fitted into one.
