Slowly We Trust Release Day Blitz & Review

Slowly We Trust - Fall and Rise #3
by Chelsea M. Cameron

What they say: 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?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I'm new to the Fall and Rise series and although there were definitely aspects of the book I missed in the first two books, I was able to enjoy Slowly We Trust as a standalone.

Audrey and Will are friends, well sort of. They've been kinda dating, without dating and both really like each other. Audrey has has a pretty big secret which she think means she doesn't deserve kind, charming and geeky Will. I didn't totally get her reasoning here but I could understand why she kept this big secret and why she felt she couldn't be with him.

Will is that rare thing in NA fiction: a handsome  caring and patient teenage guy. Seriously, Will has a LOT of patience when it comes to Audrey, because she inadvertently messes him around a lot! I'd have told her to shove it along time ago, but thankfully Will's far more dedicated and patient than I am.

The entire gang (group of friends) are all pretty involved in their relationship and I liked how they all supported each other. The only thing I would say here is sometimes I wasn't entirely sure how old they were supposed to be. Sometimes they seemed mid teens then they'd talk about sex and Uni and I'd realised they had finished high school. I think this is down to the dialogue which makes them seem a little immature at times. Now don't get me wrong I enjoyed the tone and the story, I just wasn't always sure of their setting/ages - BUT I think that perhaps this clearer if you start at book one instead of three?!

I really liked the culture references, and because I'm a big sci-fi/fantasy nerd I really appreciated the Star Wars and Harry Potter love.

3.5 Stars in my Sky!
