She thought she left the cult behind. He thought he’d always protect her. They were oh so wrong.
Twenty-year-old Lacey Simon jumped from a building on fire to escape the cult her stepdad was leading, so college should be oh so easy. Except Lacey can’t seem to move on. Not only does she receive threatening letters, she’s also failing her classes. Fun times. Only Hunter, the firefighter who saved her from the fire and who’s been there for her ever since, reminds her that her stepdad no longer dictates her future. He tutors her in English, and he makes her laugh, blush and help her be more daring. But why does it feel like he’s only doing this to redeem himself from mistakes of his past?
Twenty-one-year-old Hunter Harrington used to think he was invincible until a frat party turned tragic and he discovered a dead body in the pool. Ever since that day, he’s been doing his best to keep his grades up and help others. Yep, he even joined the volunteer firefighters’ college program. When he’s accused of plagiarism, he’s forced to spend more time with Lacey. Not that he minds. He’d love to get even closer. But he has secrets of his own that could destroy their relationship before it even starts. And can he really keep her safe?
Can they trust themselves and each other enough to no longer be afraid to love and…to stay alive?
Discover Lacey & Hunter's story in TRUST ME, TRUST ME NOT, the third standalone book in the Gavert City series.
"I am in awe of Elodie's way of creating this creepy, yet touching, story of two amazing but broken characters." -Amazon reviewer
"I love any book that has a gripping, well-paced plot. Bonus if the author somehow gets me to care about the characters, and takes me along for a ride through their arches of development. “Trust Me, Trust Me Not” fulfilled both of those criteria. From the beginning, I was captured by just plain good action, complexity (someone just got out of a cult? Someone important might be dead? Someone else died mysteriously? There was a fire?), suspense, and underlying tension. I found Lacey and Hunter’s post-traumatic presentations and guilt-prone sensitivities to be believable, and almost endearing. So good!" -Amazon reviewer.
"The book is definitely a page turner, and a compelling story." -Goodreads Reviewer
