Carter
My best friend died
tonight and her baby girl might be taken away from me, too, if I don’t find
Lily’s father before she’s ripped out of my life and given to another family.
Unfortunately, I
know who he is. He’s my best friend’s ex, and I hate him in memory and on
sight.
I love this baby,
but I don’t love him. Even if he does whatever it takes to make me trust him,
and it seems he’s determined to do exactly that.
There’s just so
little of my heart left, and I can’t—won’t—reserve any of it for that bastard,
Lachlan Hayes.
Locke
A pro-football
prodigy, success was laid out in golden dollar signs—until an injury so
cringe-worthy it went viral laid me out for good.
Since then, I’ve
discovered booze and sex, and I get both whenever I want.
Until a girl shows
up at my literal doorstep, telling me about a baby I never knew I had.
As she looks at me
with tears her eyes, I have a sick feeling my world is about to spin out again.
I’m in deep sh*t,
because in no life plan did I think I’d raise a daughter, and I sure as hell
didn’t think I’d fall in love with the woman that comes with her.

FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!

Brace yourself for an ugly cry that’s completely worth it. Trusting you ripped my heart out before putting it back together better than before. The emotions are real and powerful in this book! I was glued to the pages desperate too see Carter and Locke get the happiness they more than deserved after all they’ve both gone through. Their story may not be the easiest but it’s definitely one of the most beautiful. 
Two people who’ve lost more than anyone ever should and a precious baby girl loved so fiercely they’d sacrifice anything for her. While the losses tore my heart to shreds the love that grew from them is so absolutely beautiful it makes every tear worth it. Both Carter and Locke grow exponentially throughout this book as they unravel more and more about each other and learn more about themselves. 
What starts as devastating begins to grow into a breathtaking love that can stand through anything life throws at them. Ketley Allison delivers a powerfully emotional romance that will stick with you long after you’ve finished reading in Trusting You.

Excerpt
CARTER
“I’d better go,” I say.
“Yeah.” Locke waves us off. “Go. But make sure to come back,
okay?”
I offer him a small, deflated smile as I push the stroller
through the doorway. “I’m not going to abscond with your baby.”
“I don’t just mean the baby.”
The door’s almost shut, but I catch a glimpse of his face as
he says it, and in those brief seconds, I detect nothing but irritation.
It makes no sense, his words coupled with his expression,
but I’m coming to understand that about Locke. The conflict and layers and
constant upkeep it takes for him to keep pretending everything in his life is
okay.
I lift the stroller the way I saw Locke do it—surprised by
the lightness—and descend the staircase sideways. Lily smacks at my face and
tries to palm my nose. I blow a raspberry at her, but I’m thinking about the
man I left behind, and how I’m coming to learn that sometimes, it’s not
kindness I crave.
Seeing Locke angry is upsetting. But understanding its
impact unearths a sexual lust coiled beneath my bones. 
I’m used to emotional charge. Usually in the rollercoaster
form of grief, thinking everything will to be all right, like when the
treatment’s working and Paige has more energy, before the crash of devastation
when told there’s nothing more that can be done.
But this ride with Locke…the leap from
anger to happiness to sweetness, then back to anger, in such a short amount of
time, has me wanting to lift my dress and deal with the overdrive in an
entirely different way. I want to straddle him, to massage and kiss and tame
him.
I shudder as I drop Lily’s wheels to the ground.
Maybe…
I can keep looking forward to dinner.
