This review took me a while to write. Not because it was a bad book, that is the furthest thing from the truth. It took me a while to write because I just didn't know where to even begin. If you have ever seen the movie Blue Crush, this is a little like that movie, where the maid of a swanky hotel starts a relationship with a guest. But, unlike the movie, this has so much more drama and suspense. More trust issues and apprehension than the movie. Courage To Trust has understanding, compassion and love. I loved the story of Scarlett and Rhett. I cried where I was supposed to, I got angry when I was supposed to, and got super happy or excited where I was supposed to.
Scarlett is a maid in a swanky hotel in Las Vegas. She doesn't have time to have any relationships with anyone. Her main goal is to make sure that her brother has everything that she never got. She also has a past that would scare anyone.
Rhett is a MMA fighter in town for 2 weeks for a tournament. When he sees Scarlett in his room, he knows that he needs to have her. He needs to get to know her.
But can her past stay in the past, or will it come back and haunt her?
The characters are really well developed and you can feel their personality when you are reading the book. There is enough mystery left to be solved that a second book will need to be written. I understand why Pavan did what she did with the characters. I understand why she left it as a cliffhanger. I sad at what she did, but I understand.
The story was gripping. I couldn't get enough of it. This is the first book that I have read by Pavan, and I can tell you that this isn't going to be the last.
The overall story itself was good, but the writing seemed all over the place. There is a lot going on and at times things did not flow well for me. The story was emotionally exhausting and full of drama. Just when they get through something, another bomb drops. It just seemed to go on forever. Scarlett has been through so much. She is protective of her brother and will sacrifice anything for him. She is a one night stand type of girl. When she meets Rhett( yeah, the names are corny but it works), the attraction is instant. She wants fun and he wants more. He wants her to trust him and give up her secrets but he keeps things from her. He does share some big things except the one thing that is making him crazy. After what he shared I can't imagine what else happened to him! In the end, Scarlett can't deal and decides this is not good for her. We have to stay tuned to find out how the get to their HEA.
This is the first work I've read of Pavan Kaur. The characters had depth. The foundation of the story was powerful. I only base my reviews on content and creativity. Through my journey of Courage to Trust, I stumbled across a lot of editing errors; as a reader, if you can get past that, this is quite an enjoyable read. I found myself truly invested in the story of Scarlett Parker and Rhett Johnson. The ending shattered me and left my heart bleeding; "either let me go, or...talk to me." Rhett is so gentle and sensitive with Scarlett; helping overcome her issues, but Rhett refuses to share his own demons that burden him. I'm hoping book two, Courage to Fight gives the duo a chance at their happily ever after.
Scarlett meets the UCF fighter Rhett who wants to break down all her emotional walls, with the support of her friends, Scarlett thinks it may be possible, and she start to think maybe she can get past the nightmares from her past, although the one thing she promised herself was that she wouldn’t lose herself again, with Rhett having a past of his own that he won’t tell her, she needs to make a choice for herself.
Scarlett and Rhett were great. Rhett thinks he has found the one and won't give up in her. Scarlett is only interested in one night. Rhett starts to win her over and finds ghosts/demons in her closet. Can they make it through? Can't wait to read the next one.
I enjoyed the romantic parts of the story: it was emotional, sweet, and profound.
This book is all about love and trust and importance of family and friends; it's about having someone by your side when the times get rough.
I loved it!
