Caleb & Paige’s dynamic was what kept me glued to this story! I love a good suspense filled crime family book and Trust was that and more. Paige nearly escaped death when she was a young teenager and since then has felt like someone was always after her. The plot of this story is complex, filled with questions and intrigue about the whole incident. It has obviously impacted her life severely, but there are many mysteries looming. Caleb knows something is going on with her and begins to insert himself into her life. The two aren’t quite sure of one another, or the people around them but they begin to develop a bond that is undeniable. Warning, you will be cursing Casey Diam for the cliffhanger she leaves you on but, have no fear, the second book awaits!

Our Favorite Quotes

I kissed and sucked the skin on his shoulder, needing to do something with my mouth. My body took everything he was giving with so much greed that I couldn’t decide whether to loosen or tighten my legs around his hips. But, as I loosened them, it changed the way he thrust into me, and my body was delighted in the pure ecstasy of his longer, deeper strokes.

Even though I needed him, I didn’t want to. I wanted to despise him for the connections he had to those men. For all the cruel things he probably did for them. But I couldn’t. Not after the moments I’d shared with him, and I hated him for that. I hated him for putting me in this position because I felt weak. I had already become used to his presence in my life and the comforting heat radiating off his body, lulling me to sleep at night.
He was making me concede.

“Don’t tempt me with your sweet nothings unless you don’t plan to leave this bed again. You want to know why?”
I bit the grin on my lip as I asked, “Why is that?”
“Because I want to make sure I fuck you thoroughly.” He sucked on my neck. “Paige, you should be thoroughly fucked. Always. And by me. Only me.”

From The Publisher


Nearly five years ago, my mom, dad, and sisters had been assassinated.
I should have died that night.
I still questioned my mental state because I had no proof they had been after me. But, since then, I’d been trying to outrun my past and the men responsible for what had happened that night.
Until I met him—Caleb Connor.
Caleb became my safety net, and I found I couldn’t pull away from him. Couldn’t run away from him. And, if sanity hadn’t been lost on me, I would have recognized he was the last person I should have let into my life.
The last person I should have trusted.

My life had been anything but normal until Paige. She was supposed to be an opportunity, my father’s next target.
I should have stayed away. It should’ve been that simple. But it wasn’t.
Paige was my main ingredient to changing everything, and in order to do that, I needed to get inside her head. It wasn’t easy, but when it happened, a line was crossed we’d never known existed.
Now, Paige had to confront her past and everything that tormented her at night because a look into the past was the only solution to everything we’d been afraid of questioning.

Who am I, and who is she?

About Casey Diam:

Some years ago, Casey rediscovered her passion for writing and hasn’t stopped writing since. She writes sexy, funny, sweet, and emotional stories that are a bit more in depth, but so much fun to read.

I read. I create. I get in trouble. That is me in a nutshell. I live in a snarky, artistic, eclectic world where BDSM and Dark Erotica are high on my reading list. I yearn for a really raw, gritty book where the lead guy/girl is more like a villain and I am left completely mindf*cked. The more the usual lines of morality are blurred, the better. I am an Alice in Wonderland Freak, an Edgar Allan Poe lover and an ocean addicted mermaid. I like originality when it comes to my books. The dirtier, the better. I am here to Discover, Share and Obsess. Join me, will you?
