Beg You to Trust Me by B. Celeste is now live!
When I decided to move across the country for college, I thought it’d be the perfect chance to reinvent myself.
But then one party changed the course of my entire freshman year.
And just when I think I’m about to drown in the foggy memories of my night spent partying at the football house, Daniel Bridges walks into my life.
Lindon University’s wide receiver.
A total flirt. And a total threat.
Because he can help take away the memories I do remember from that night.
What I don’t anticipate from the witty football player is the friendship we form as the months go on.
Or how easy it is to fall for him as he teaches me how to trust again…and so much more.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Reading this book was like walking through an emotional minefield. Skylar and Danny’s romance itself was a sweet slow burn with a hero who was so incredibly patient with the broken girl he wanted more than anything to let him in. But in the background is a messy tale of bullying, harassment, and sexual assault on a college campus. This book definitely has some triggers that readers need to be aware of, but Danny and Skylar’s story is a beautiful one to read.
The book opens with Skylar doing the walk of shame after a party at the football house. But she can’t remember who she was with because she was drugged and drunk. There are rumors going around campus about her, and Sky has zero support from her suitemates. Especially her bitchy roommate. The only person she can count on is her friend Olive, until Danny pushes his way into her life.
I loved how these two connected with one another. There were misconceived notions on both of their parts at first, but once they became friends, they just really clicked. There are some really heartbreaking moments where Danny tries to help Skylar work through what happened to her — like the scene where he is on his knees literally begging her to trust him! So well written!
There is a lot of growth for both characters, especially Skylar. I loved her story arc and how she ultimately reclaims her life after being victimized. When it came down to things that really matter, Danny stood up and did the right thing, despite what it did to his reputation as a member of the football team.
I would have loved to have seen a HEA for this couple instead of the happy-for-now ending that we got, and the book ends on a jaw-dropping tease for the next installment in this series.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
