She ran from her past… right into his arms.

Marrin Braxton is scarred—physically and emotionally. As a result, she separates her college life from her personal life and makes a point not to trust anyone. Especially guys.

So when she secretly starts sleeping with her hot neighbor, Damian Wane, she makes it clear it’s just sex. Good, kinky sex.

And boy, is it kinky. In the b

This book starts off running and I was immediately hooked! Marrin and Damian have a casual no-strings relationship, and both are keeping dark secrets from the last well hidden. Damian, is super sexy with a super naughty mouth and controls Marrin in all the right ways in the bedroom! But ghosts from each other’s pasts can’t stay hidden forever and when they show up it’s not pretty. What these two go through together is tough and beautiful and will have you throwing your kindle across the room lol ...more

Raw. Gritty. Sexy. Dangerous. Angsty. Powerful... These are just a few words to describe this masterpiece of a book!

Earning Her Trust by Adore Ian (Braxton Arcade #1) is a book that I simply adore, a book that I will never, EVER, forget. This book completely blew me away. Everything about this novel was great: It was a sexy, passionate read, but full of angst and delicate of something so sensitive but told pretty damn well. For her first novel, Adore Ian did an exceptional job.

One thing that sc

An ARC of this book was kindly given by the author. I put a trigger warning at the end so that may be a spoiler otherwise this review is spoiler free.


I flew through this book . It is filled with smut and drama and i ate it up. I was familiar with the author’s blog (which i love) and her fanfics (again love) and specifically the first bit of fanfic that turned into this full blown amazing book.

Marrin Braxton was a good mc and her journey was interesting to follow. Same with Damien who was nothi

They share mutual friends. It was only supposed to be a no strings hook up....

Marrin’s life is complicated. She’s in school, has two jobs, and keeps her secrets. Only a few know the truth about her life and that’s how she likes it.

Damian comes from wealth, volunteers teaching self-defense in his spare time and likes his women without strings. He’s got his own skeletons he’s battling. Money doesn’t mean a life without struggle.

Two lost souls. Two people a little bit broken down by life, but battl

"She'd just walked out. Even had the audacity to tell me to lock the door on my way out. In less than nine hours, the same woman had walked away from me--twice. It was as if she'd declared war."

Never in my life have I finished a book so quickly... that is a lie. But let's say I can count on my fingers the times in which I have finished a book as quickly as I read Adore Ian's Earning Her Trust. It is a plot filled, steamy romance centered around two lovable and kick ass characters Marrin and Dami

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book, but I’m so pleasantly surprised to see where it went and to read the next one in the series. Marrin is a strong female character that has endured so much and survived. I love how you don’t know what happened right away. Damian is fantastic, total alpha but sweet and romantic. How they both work thru their trauma is so engaging. Plus, we’ll the steamy scenes are just daaaaaamn. 👍. My only thought was that there was a little too much expositio ...more

This book has several elements that I love in a good novel. It has interesting characters (Damien and Marrin) whose story continues to unfold, revealing all their secrets as it progresses. It is angsty, sexy, and yes humorous. The theme of trauma and abuse are looked at in an intriguing yet thoughtful way. My one pause was that this story had A LOT going on which seem to interferes with its flow a bit. Overall I enjoyed this book with its adrenaline rushing storyline and naughty interplay.

I cannot say enough good things about this book! Adore Ian’s writing style is so mature and easy to fall into, I read this book in just a few sittings. There was just the right amount of everything in this book; flirty fun, dynamic action scenes, EDUCATION, and some REALLY sexy scenes. 😉

I enthusiastically encourage you to pick up this book. It’s one that will stay with you!


**I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Adore Ian grew up in a mixed race family in Hawaii and has loved steamy romance novels ever since finding a Harper paperback discarded on the sidewalk when she was a kid. She’s a proud dyslexic, a loud intersectional feminist, and a lover of standard poodles. She lives with her manfriend on the east coast where she spends too much time bunny watching and not enough time writing. She believes the i ...more
