SLOWLY WE TRUST by Chelsea M. Cameron

April 2014


Audrey Valdez didn’t mean to fall for Will Anders. He isn’t her type. At all. But his goofy smile, Star Wars quotes and athletic body make it impossible. She's lived so long in the darkness and Will is like the sun. He makes her laugh more than she has in years and cares for her more than her own family.

But there are things about Audrey that Will doesn't know, things he can't know. She tries to push him away, but he just ends up getting closer to her, and to her secret. Is the risk of losing him forever worth the chance a being with the only person she's ever loved who has loved her back?

Slowly We Trust is the 3rd installment of the Fall and Rise Series. This time the story centers around Audrey Valdez  and Will Anders. As you may remember, Will is the twin of Lottie. So, if you follow the series, you will see and the other characters that follow throughout. It makes you feel like the gang is al back together (even though they never really left).

Will is a dorky, Star Wars loving, fun guy who is head over heals in love with Audrey. So in love with her, he tells her on New Year's Eve. At midnight. . Andrey liked their relationship before Will had to declare his feelings. She was not looking for anything serious. Audrey panics when Will declares his feelings and bolts. Like she literally runs out the door.  From that point on, she decides to push  Will 
away and keep her distance. This is extremely hard because they share all the same friends. Especially his sister. Lottie is put in the middle.  Poor Lottie doesn't want to lose her friend or hurt her brother. 

The chemistry that Will and Audrey share can not keep them apart for long. That fact and Will's persistence. Will tries to do whatever he can to keep fighting for Audrey. He will be her friend. He pretty much lets her walk all over him. Andrey can not keep away from Will no matter how hard she tries to be just friends with him. 
They are adorable together. In a weird way. 

The main reason Audrey wants to keep things with Will platonic has to do with a secret she is keeping. A big one. One that not many people outside her family know about. There is a lot of sneaky phone calls and visits made by Audrey to keep what she doesn't want anyone to find out about. She is afraid when people do find out, things will be different. 
There are some major twists and turns. Will is a great guy who is there every step of the way. He is a truly great book boyfriend.
