All it took was one cup of coffee

Dallas McNeil was hooked on Candi Jennings, the waitress from his second job as security at an off-strip club in Las Vegas But he thought that she deserved a better man than him with his PTSD he suffered from being in the Marines. Candy thought that he deserved a woman who did not have such complicated baggage as she did. She was just satisfied with making his coffee just the way he liked it. Everyone who worked with them knew they had the hots for each other. Ev

Dallas and Candi

Love the story of a abuse woman finding the strength to get out of the marriage and start life over again with someone who is strong and understanding deserving of a good woman and know how to treat her. Looking forward to reading more from Ms. Banks. She's worth reading.

Audio Review:
Dallas (Trust & Honor, Book 1) is novella so it's short and sweet. Seeping through the narrative is oddles of suspense. With a nectarous epilogue that gave Candi and Dallas their hea.

Narrator Lacy Laurel has a sweet yet sultry intonation and vividly expressive. A entertaining listen

Dallas and Candi

I downloaded this book thinking I haven't read it,however as soon I started I realized that that I have read it. I looked for my review and couldn't find it,so I reread the whole thing.
Anyway,it was nice spending time with Dallas and Candi,again. I hope Tanner will have his own story.
As for Lamont,I hope that he gets some good loving in the prison.

Tiktok made me do it! And im not sorry! I really enjoyed this book. I fell in love with the characters and i was sad when it ended. The ONLY reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because it was short. I wanted more. Dallas is a tough, rough, growly alpha and i loved how possessive and protective he was with Candi. Im excited to read more from this author ❤

So meeting the right person to love and who loves you back can soften your heart and give you the motivation you need to make a change in your life. Love is not suppose to hurt and Candi realized that and change her scenery, then she found true love and is living her best life. I love your stories keep writing them.

Short but good

An amazing storyline that was pulled together with ease. Candi was a troubled person that was trying to put her troubles behind her. Dallas had his own dark past but knew she was his future.

Wow, this one really had you thinking about all of the everyday issues that happen to often. Dallas is the example of a true hero. Candi was strong for the way she responded and took control of her life. Overall a cute love story by a great author.

Quick Read

Fast pace, a little action, lot of love and great chemistry! Dallas and Candi are both troubled for different reasons. The cell for each other at first site; each one giving the other much needed love and support.

Dallas, the first in the Trust & Honor series is stand alone story about Dallas and Candi. The length of the book was in between a short story and what I would call a full length novel, so the characters seemed to jump right into the relationship. I'd recommend this book to people who like romantic suspense.

I listened to the Audible version and this was a quick, interesting listen. Lacy Laurel did a great job with her performance.
