Quiet, smart, and totally not my type.

To boost his reputation on campus.
I'm going to do it,
Only because I need him too.

Stella and Sawyers book was amazing. I fell in love with Stella almost immediately and related so much to her and how she handles her feelings and keeps everything inside. She only shows happiness to everyone around her. I loved how Sawyer seemed to notice anytime she was hiding her feelings or doing other self-preservation acts Stella had learned. I cannot wait to see more Stella and Saywer in future books and was so sad to see this story end!!

I think this may be my favorite of this series yet. I really felt connected to the characters in this book. I have followed along with the series from the start and watched it grow and develop.

Stella is the last single lady in the group. She is loud, out going and all around fun girl. She works at the paper and is well respected in the town. But she is lonely. Having grown up filling in for an absent father and a depressed mother she was easily faded into the back ground. She feels lonely at tim

I have been waiting a LONG time to read Stella and Sawyer's story. And I will start by saying that Ms. Coll has done it again - this book is AMAZING! I love this series so very much and every book adds more depth and detail to the characters I adore.

Stella and Sawyer are complete opposites. Where Stella is loud and outspoken, Sawyer is quiet and contained. Stella is a reporter while Sawyer is a professor working towards his tenure. They have known each other for a long time and hang out in the

I loved this book so much! I spent the whole morning reading the book. I just couldn’t put it down. I loved it so much that I hopped on to Amazon and purchase the first three books in the series and will be buying then next books in the series when they are released. This author is going on my must pre-order list. It was very well written and held my attention from beginning to end. It can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone but there will be some spoilers of the other books in the series. All ...more

I had a feeling I was going to have a tough time with this book. For all of Stella’s vivacious outgoing personality, she’s never been one of my favorite characters due to her tendency to purposely embarrass her friends. Then I hit the opening line and I was sure it was going to be a bumpy ride. Because that statement is so entirely a$$ backwards, I was ready to fight before I’d even really started the book. I ended up liking this story a lot better than I was expecting to. Sawyer is completely a ...more

Sexy and serious

Serious and a little sexy, this romance features a woman who has learned that she can’t trust her heart. It’s a story of two opposites coming together and making each other better in the process. The writing is solid (though a little repetitive), and while the overall tone is serious with some sweetness, there’s definitely still a sexy side to the story.

Trust in Me follows Stella, a woman who has been cheated on in every relationship she’s ever had. Having been burned so many tim

To everyone around her Stella appears happy and boisterous but her façade hides her insecurities and hurt. Sawyer is a professor who prefers to observe rather than be the life of the party and they couldn’t be more different.

Stella is attracted to him but she knows that she is not the type of woman he is looking for so friends is all they will ever be. She agrees to pretend they are dating to help his career but when the feelings between them become real will he be able to convince her that he

I will start by saying that I loved this book so much, I just couldn’t put it down ! I read the whole book in one go, forgetting food and sleep altogether.
Who needs sleep anyways ? I need answers !! So:

When you combine total opposites, a fake relationship and add attraction to the mix, you get an absolutely funny, charming, sexy and relatable story. It’s exactly what I wanted and what I needed in a book. The characters were EVERYTHING !! Especially Sawyer, with his whole "sexy professor" image

Trust in Me

This is a great book. It's a story of a woman and a man who both have issues from their past that affect them as adults. Lots of baggage to overcome to make the way into a relationship.

3.25 Stars. This is the first book I have read in this series. The author gives you enough background on the characters that you don’t feel lost by reading the series out-of-order.
Professor Sawyer Hudson is great boyfriend material. He is kind and has good morals. He is understanding and has a shyness about him, that is actually sexy. (He certainly isn’t shy in the bedroom.) On the other hand, Stella is her own worse enemy. She is so much into her head and her past to get high marks as a girlfri

Overall I liked this book. I will admit Sawyer and Stella didn't exactly work well together. Plus it bugged me that Sawyer handled things badly. He wouldn't even let her explain what actually happened. Thankfully in the end it all worked out and they got their happy ending. ...more

One in a series but also works as a standalone.
Stella is a great, spirited character. Sawyer is your quiet, shy guy who’s just <3
While their fake dating is a done trope, I thought it was fascinating and the characters have a lot of chemistry. I definitely enjoyed this story.
(Steamy, too, which while not my usual thing, I seem to be picking up lately...)

Books like this one are exactly why I have been sucked into the romance genre and I'm never coming out. Stella and Sawyer made my heart swoon in so many ways. This is the 4th book in the All I Want series by Lea Coll but it can easily be read as a standalone. Trust In Me was my first book I have read by Lea Coll and I want to lock myself away and read all the other books in this series.

Trust In Me has a bit of a fake dating trope which always leads to tons of fun. I think what really drew me int

Reviewed for She’s a Lip Biter Blog

Stella and Sawyer Hudson knew of each other in high school but now that he is a professor at the local collage they seem to bump into each other a lot. Shame he thought she was a loud mouth.

Stella is a fabulous character who is full of life and energy. She attacks things head on and shows how having a learning disability doesn’t mean you can’t do what you want to do. Unfortunately, as with most generous, kind hearted people, she has dated some big losers in her

Trust in Me by Lea Coll
“The quiet one and the loud one, 4 stars”

Stella is loud and boisterous. She’s often the life of the party. Stella always wears a smile but doesn’t really let people in. sure she has those close to her but they don’t know everything. Something about Sawyer makes her want to spill all her secrets. But he’s made it clear he doesn’t want someone like her.
Sawyer is still kind of shy and awkward. He didn’t mean what he said about Stella, she’s just kind of intimidating. She’s lo

A struggle to overcome and sweet success
Trust In Me (All I Want #4) by Lea Coll is a well written romance and introspective reflection from Stella’s perspective.
Stella is larger than life and lights up the room wherever she goes. She and Sawyer seem an unlikely pair, but as the story develops, it becomes clear they are really perfect for one another.
The plot of this book is engaging and dramatic, including both Stella and Sawyer. Although written almost entirely from Stella’s perspective, it wa

All I want, is for more of this series to hurry up and get here. I have loved this series since book 1 and now we are on book 4. Each book can be read as a stand alone. Contains previous couples in the book but they do not take over the story.

This book pertains to Sawyer, a shy, college, history professor and Stella, a journalist that wants to find true love, but just can't seem to get it right. They have known each other for years, but one evening of overhearing some not so nice things, has ca

Trust In Me is my first book by Lea Coll. I thought it was a cute and fun story. Stella and Sawyer are the cutest together. Stella has trust issues because of two previous relationships. She also doesn't think that she has a chance with Sawyer after overhearing what he thinks of her. Life has a way of working out and putting people in our lives that we never thought would be part of it before. The two key points that I took away from this story is being honest with those around you and to be you ...more

A quick , fun and enjoyable read. I really liked both the characters. Stella is loud and life of party where as Sawyer is shy and quiet. Though Stella portrays a very different exterior she is hiding more inside her. She has learning disabilities which she hides by being a class clown. Sawyer is a shy professor who is working towards a tenure . Both of them have known each other and have common friends. The story is engaging and captivating . I really enjoyed the plot and the characters. It was ...more
Marianela Aybar (Mari Loves Books Blog)
It's so hard to trust, especially when you have been hurt before. I can see why Stella is weary of being with Sawyer but a fake relationship always has some truth in it right? This was so fun to read and I was all in and feeling everything. I love that Sawyer is sort of the quiet one and the girl wasn't made to be that way. They balance each other out so well but takes them a while to admit that they actually do need each other in different ways.

Trust in Me (A Fake Relationship Romance) is the fourth book in the "All I Want" series. Stella and Sawyer are wonderful characters, as opposite as could be, and yet, there is something there but can they admit it to themselves? I loved this fake relationship romance story. The storyline is well written and emotional, with misunderstandings, issues from the past, and a sweet romance.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
