TRUST BY L. CHAPMAN


Megan Madden has lost her trust. Who knew a trip with a friend to shop for a wedding dress for her upcoming wedding would turn into Megan meeting Mark, the man to test her resolve, her belief in herself and make her love again. 

This book was not one of my favorites to be honest and it took a long time for me to work my way through it. I almost passed on even posting a review, but decided I would because in the end, many people WILL love this book and WILL be able to relate to the story of a pregnant woman finding love again after a bad breakup. It was not something I could relate to at all and maybe that is why I did not find it to be one I just LOVED when I read it. However, I would not discourage anyone from giving it a chance, as Mark is a definite sweet guy who will warm your heart and it was a good first effort from a debuting author. I thought some of the events that took place in the book happened way too quickly to be even remotely realistic, like him buying her a charm bracelet that chronicled their "relationship" a day after mettting her. Also, it had times where the repetitveness of Mark saying "Megan" in every sentence when he spoke to her seemed too formal for a conversaton between two people beginning a relationship and it could have used better editing but again, for a debut novel it was not terrible by any means. I think over the course of her writing career L. Chapman will do great as an author and I will continue to read and recommend her books, as just because one is not MY favorite, someone else may love it and just because this one did not speak to me does not mean in the future one of hers will not. I gave this book 3.5 stars. <3 Kellie
