Blog Tour: Trusting Liam (Taking Chances #2) by Molly McAdams


trustingliamSynopsis: From the New York Times bestselling author of Taking Chances, From Ashes, and Stealing Harper, comes the new unforgettable adult romance Molly McAdams’ fans have been waiting for—the sizzling story of a young woman who must place her trust in the one man who can break through her defenses.

A night they will always remember…a connection neither can deny…a secret that could destroy it all…

When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.

Liam Taylor has been asked to help socialize his boss’s nieces. But what he thinks sounds more like a babysitting job ends up leading him to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning—a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.

But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?

Excerpt: "Trying not to wake him, I slowly slid out from under his arm and off the bed to search for my clothes. Once I was dressed, I told myself to just leave, but I couldn’t help it—I turned to look at him in the light. I needed to be sure I hadn’t made him up. The images from last night tore through my mind again when I saw the large, tattooed arm resting where my body had just been. The muscles were well defined even relaxed, and the face had a boyish charm now that he was asleep. Such a difference from the predatory stare and knowing smirk I kept seeing in my mind. Before I could stop myself, I gently ran my fingers through his dirty-blond hair that, now in the sunlight, I could see had a red tint to it. And I knew if he opened them, those arctic blue eyes would once again captivate me. But I couldn’t risk that. I’d already stayed too long; I’d already made a mistake with him. Drunken one-night stands weren’t my thing. Drunken one-night stands with strangers in Vegas were even worse. Straightening, I turned and walked quietly from the room."-- Molly McAdams, Trusting Liam

My Review

Thanks to previous experience, Kennedy Ryan cannot trust men. She doesn't believe in love and she can't bring herself to bring down her defenses. That is until she unexpectedly finds herself in Liam Taylor's life - the man she had a one night stand with a year earlier and couldn't forget for months after.

Liam Taylor thought of Moon for months after waking up disappointed that she wasn't beside him. When his boss asks him for a favor at first he is hesitant. Then he meets his boss' niece who is surprisingly Moon, the girl who left him a year earlier in a hotel room. Moon, as he affectionately refers to Kennedy as, has him jumping hurdles and facing one obstacle after the next and just when he thinks he's knocked a brick out of her wall, she builds it back up. Determined to be with her, Liam goes out of his way to show Kennedy that she CAN trust him and that she can be herself - no defenses and brick walls needed. 

Trusting Liam is wonderfully written, but from Author Molly McAdams readers should not expect anything less. McAdams leads her readers through a journey of emotional discovery as she breaks down walls between characters, has Kennedy going against her stance on love, and throws in some suspense as well regarding the reason Kennedy and her twin sister is in California.

I fell in love with Liam myself. Total book boyfriend right there! He didn't give up, but also respected Kennedy while persuing her. He made her see that he was there waiting in the wings but also that he was given her space so that she could see the connection between them. 

The setting is perfect for summer, the characters both main and secondary are all interesting and had me wanting to know more of their stories, and the plot was great. I loved the fact that they had met before and fate threw them together again. I also really liked the fact that Liam called Kennedy Moon and swooned over the line "You'll always be Moon to me." I also liked the fact that both Kennedy and Liam's dads were these hardcore macho men - a man who owns a gym and was a  fighter and a detective. 

My favorite part though is probably their first date when everything that could go wrong does... But that made it so great. Plus these two will haves great story to share with some grandkids someday ;)

I enjoyed this book so much I had to tell everyone about it. I think Trusting Liam would make a great beach read for this summer and I am recommending it to friends, family, and of course you lovely readers! 

5 FANTASTIC STARS for Molly McAdams and Trusting Liam! 

About the Author


Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
