    • I am pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The H was fantastic. He was so possessive, extremely protective, and utterly obsessed with the h. The sex scenes in this book are SUPER HOT!!! I even liked the h and for the first time in a really long time there was no slutty best friend. Her friends were normal people just like her. I can't wait to continue this series and, hopefully if the author keeps creating such amazing H's, read future books by her.


    • This book was great. It is almost 3 in the morning and I am just now finishing. I couldn’t put it down. This book absolutely had me hooked from page one. This does remind me of Fifty Shades of Grey but not in a copy cat kind of way. This is the book I have been searching for on all those lists that say “If you liked Fifty Shades you should read these.” I have not found a book as good as Fifty Shades until now.Laurel is a girl about to graduate college. Yes just like Ava but so different. L [...]


    • I struggled to get into this book, the found parts of it predictable and was able to guess quite a bit, and then of course it ended on a bloody cliffhanger! You know how much I hate cliffhangers, but Book two is on my kindle so fear not.With all of the above I shouldn't have enjoyed this book, but I did. Laurel, wow, what can you say, she's had a truly crappy time of things hasn't she, and I admit to being concerned at the way she let's Garrett control her, how quickly he drew her in, but I don' [...]


    • Loved the book very similar to fifty shades of grey. Laurel, very smart and beautiful graduating from MIT and was offered a job in Florida. Garrett Andrews, Hr interview laurel and gave her an offer from Mr. Waters that she couldn't confuse. Laurel was able to get her cousin grace a job too and became roommates. She was glad to have family around to confined. Laurel had bad experience with chase and was afraid of dating. She also had fainting spells. They story goes to kinesiology studying bio m [...]


    • I really wanted to give this book a higher rating; but I just couldn't. After everything Laurel had been through I had trouble understanding why she would instantly trust a guy like Garret who was super controlling and used terminology which made him seem like a stalker/control freak. The whole book just seemed a little too 50 Shades of Grey for me to really enjoy it. Another problem I had with the book was the issues revolving around the low blood sugar levels. As a type 1 diabetic myself, I ju [...]


    • I loved this story so much. The characters are intense but you just fall in love with them. It had a roller coaster of emotions where you were happy for what was happening with the characters,but then you were sad for them, then happy again. Just when I thought I had it figured out it would twist and change and that just made me love it more. Did I mention the sexy, melt my panties, hot as hell, Garrett Andrews. He is a little mysterious and I can't wait to find out more about him in this series [...]


    • I received an ARC in return for an honest review. My review is my own and is in no way swayed because I received a copy to review. I have reviewed as though I have purchased the content and whether I would be satisfied or not.I really wasn't expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did, I thought it was going to be a pleasant read, the synopsis suggested enough to keep me entertained but it went further that just entertainment, I really did sink into Garrett and Laurel's story.I liked Laurel, s [...]

BE WARNED the ending is a major cliff hanger ! A major WTH moment for me !!!! I want to stalk the author and beg her , yes beg her , on my knees ,puppy eyes included to tell me what happens, my other option would be to go all Kathy Bates (Stephen King's Misery) on herGarret ,so much I can say but  he's what I like to call a 'ge [...]

    • Learning to Trust by Cynthia P. O'NeillRating 5*****This book was provided from the author in exchange for honest literary review. Laurel is just graduating from MIT with honors when her whole world is turned upside down. A new job offer and a sexy Garret Andrews have her reeling, but in a good way. Garrett is hell bent on showing her that love and relationships don't hurt you, but make life better. That is if Laurel can escape the demon from her past and put it behind her. Garrett is pulled to [...]


    • Learning to Trust by Cynthia O'neilFor an honest review. When I first started reading the book I thought of FSOG with the domineering alpha males and the young intern, I found myself drawn to the characters and their story. I enjoyed reading about both of their struggles with learning to trust themselves and each other. Laurel Hart, battling emotional demons and health issues, wants nothing more than to finish her finals, her senior project, graduate from MIT and move as far away from this place [...]


    • Learning to Trust is a love story and it has some sweet parts but holy hell this one is HOT! I loved this story so much. The characters are intense but you just fall in love with them. It had a roller coaster of emotions where you were happy for what was happening with the characters, but then you were sad for them, then happy again. Just when I thought I had it figured out it would twist and change and that just made me love it more. Did I mention the sexy, melt my panties, hot as hell, Garrett [...]


    • OMG! OMG! OMG! I thought Christian Grey was intense, but this Garrett Andrews, WOW, he takes the cake! He is similar in some instances to Christian, but not in the scene department. The sexual scenes are super hot, but in a non-trashy way, which I appreciate. You can feel the desire and love pouring off the pages between the characters. I love how the author has Laurel, a very tortured soul, go from naive and unsure of things, to being in touch with her feminine side and discovering she's a litt [...]


    • 5 starsArc review.All I have to say is wow. What a great book. It has a story, it has a plot and well it has sex. What more can you ask for. I like that it is written in laurel POV, and that she has a story to tell. She is a strong independent woman, and she has a head on her shoulders. And omg Garrett, he is my new book boyfriend. He's damaged, but goes after what he wants. I truly enjoyed the storyline and can't wait to read the next installment. This book should be on everyone's tbr list. I d [...]


    • This is sort of an awkward book, with minor grammatical and editing issues. Many reviews referred to FSOG, but while there's a lot of controlling behavior, I'm not sure I'd characterize this as BDSM. The believability factor is pretty low, the pacing is all wrong and little uncomfortable. I'm a big fan of bossy, controlling alpha men, but the lead male character verged on being a little creepy, especially considering the lead female character was fighting off a stalker ex-boyfriend. On the plus [...]


    • Wowat was hot!!!! I've read books like Fifty Shades and The Crossfire Series and have been disappointed that I've been unable to find any that come close to that, but this not only met those, but surpassed them! Garrett Andrews is described as one smokin' hot alpha male and he already has me under his spell as one of my favorite book boyfriends. Laurel is amazing, too. I like that she starts to get in touch with her feminine wiles and becomes a stronger person throughout the course of the book. [...]


    • There's no other words to describe other than AMAZING!!! I read some of the negative reviews and was reluctant to read this one, but I don't understand what all the complaints are about. This is a fictional book, it doesn't have to reflect real life. That's why I like to read these books, to escape reality and go to a world where anything is possible and the male can either be sweet or overly dominant, depending on my mood. I totally agree that this book is the next "Fifty Shades"! I love Garret [...]


    • This was a steamy read. I had a hard time putting it down. I love Laurel. She is a great character with lots of Depth. The romance was great. I was so caught up in this story. Garrett was a little too controlling but the story worked. the sexy romance combined with the hear felt drama made for an irresistible read. If you love 50 shades then you will be hooked here too. But don't get me wrong this is no 50 shades. It is a great read with great characters. A well written book that I definitely re [...]


    • I purchased this after a re-release of the series event. As I started reading I quit worrying about event because I was so caught up in the story. I loved the way that the main male character had to gain her trust, but was the first one to betray that trust. Deep down she really trusts him because in a moment of life or death she turns to him. This book was wonderful for beginners in the bedroom and was working up to more when the book ended. Now I have to have the next one to read this weekend. [...]


    • I LOVED LOVED THIS BOOK !!!! THE STORY WAS AMAZING AND THE BOOK WAS WONDERFUL WRITTEN!!!! SO MUCH INTENSITY AND EMOTIONS ARE RUNNING WITH THIS STORY !!!!NOW IT NO FIFTHY SHADES OF GREY TO ME BUT IT WAS A GOODREAD !!1 WHAT I DID NOT LIKE IS THE ENDING THAT WAS ABSOLUELTY A CLIFFHANGER FOR ME SO IM HOPING THE NEXT BOOK IS OUT !!!!!! CYNTHIA P O NEIL YOU ROCK FOR BRINGING US SUCH A DRAMATIC STORY THAT IS ONE FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS!!!!


    • 2.5 starsCliffhanger Argh! It has a freaking Cliffhanger ending. This book has a beginning and a middle but not a flipping ending. It ends right in the middle of the most interesting part of the book. I really, really despise when books do that! Additionally, I think this book went over board on the hero. I think she was going for alpha/possessive (like Christian Gray), but it comes off as a bit freaky and unnatural There was much eye rolling in the course of reading this book.


    • No, don't end!At the very start of this book, I couldn't put it down. It reminds me a little bit of Fifty Shades of Grey! This is a definite read



    • As a first attempt for this author I feel it is a good start and look forward to seeing what she comes up with for the 2nd book.






    • Sorry, but this was just 50 Shade of Gray re-hashed. The writing was better, but there was no reason to care about these two. Laurel is such a naive idiot for someone graduating from MIT.
