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?
“This story has all the usual McAdams elements: It’s funny, sexy and twisty - not to mention the scenes are wickedly hot... And, remember, McAdams loves to throw major curveballs, so plan accordingly.” -- RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.

"No one was ever worth the chase. But you? You will be worth it every time. I will always chase you, Kennedy."
Getting Trusting Liam on my Kindle just after midnight on Tuesday was something I and many other Taking Chances and Forgiving Lies fans have been absolutely over the moon about since we knew this project was coming to be. Of course the second Liam arrived I started reading and as much as I wanted to finish this book in one sitting, life and pesky little first graders have a way of putting a stop to late night reading marathons.
Anyway, I have now finished Trusting Liam. Read my favorite parts more than once and basically have fallen head over heals in love with Chase Grayson's son. As one Molly McAdams Support Group member put it, I feel like I'm cheating on Chase with Liam. If you didn't get to read my post about my obsession with Chase Grayson (May 27, 2015), I will tell you he has been my obsession since I accidentally read Stealing Harper, not knowing I should have read Taking Chances first. And yes, I had a love/hate relationship with Molly through the whole Chase, Harper and Brandon debacle.
Reading about Chase's look alike son Liam and his story with Kash and Rachel's daughter Kennedy was more than I ever could have imagined. I literally had no words through out reading Trusting Liam because I was having ridiculous feels for both Liam and Chase.
Liam Taylor (which I'm not going to lie totally hurt my heart) has an incredible, steamy, passionate one night stand in Las Vegas with Kennedy Ryan, who actually happens to be Kash and Rachel's daughter (series collide...get it? God I love that). After that one night, Kennedy sneaks out before Liam wakes up and they don't see each other again...until....
Kennedy and her twin sister Kira are sent to California since, men that Kash and Uncle Mason have put in prison are making threats against Kash's family, especially his daughters. A very unhappy Kennedy and Kira fly out to California with their Uncle Mason and are left in the care of their mom's brother Eli.
Now here it comes...Uncle Eli is the boss of the very hot, very sexy, tatted up, iced blue eyed Liam Taylor (still killing me). Liam following in the foot steps of his late father is a man who has yet to be tied down to one woman, preferring the company of many women and definitely of the hit it and quit it mentality. That is until his night with Kennedy. The girl he can't get out of his head.
Obviously not being familiar with the situation, Eli asks for Liam's help getting the girls acquainted with California. He even asks Liam to see if Brandon can use the girl's help at the gym he owns. Liam does all of this not knowing who Eli's nieces actually are. Imagine his shock when he sees Kennedy at his father's (not really) juice bar and realizes it's his Moon from that night in Vegas. Yes, he calls her Moon and it's the sweetest thing ever (you'll find out why when you read). Every time Liam said, "Good night, Moon." I swooned. Okay, so I swooned over Liam through like 99.9% of the book. He is just that swoon worthy.
Unfortunately, Kennedy isn't that excited to find Liam after a year and spends a lot of time avoiding any attempt that Liam makes at getting together. Even while trying to tell Liam how wrong they are for each other, the two share some steaming hot kissing scenes that will make you wish you were Kennedy.
Here's the thing about Kennedy. The girl doesn't believe in love or forever, which is weird considering Kash and Rachel are still very much in love and have worked through a ton of crazy hurdles in their life together. Every once in a while Kennedy will allude to why she can't ever be in love again and why she doesn't believe in marriage. She also has some serious issues about being in control and you'll find out about that too.
Just when Liam breaks down Kennedy's defenses and they finally get together...Bam! You find out what Kennedy's been hiding and why she tried to push Liam away the whole time.
I love the way Molly brings these stories and families together. When memories of Chase came up I swear I could not stop the tears. When Liam tells Kennedy the story of one of his tattoos, I literally couldn't breath. Every once in a while yesterday my kids were like, why are you crying? How on earth do I explain Chase Grayson to them?
Anyway, Brian is definitely one of my absolute favorite characters in this story. I love that he calls Liam "Little Chachi". I love when he makes references to Liam and Chase's similarities and I love the wisdom he imparts on this younger generation. He was a good friend to Chase and now he's looking out for his son.
Here's what killed me. I get it that Brandon raised Liam, I really do, but I hated that he called him dad. I was gutted that he referenced Chase by his first name when he told stories about him. And maybe it's because I am anti-Harper, but I blamed her for that. She should have given Liam his father's last name.
I have to say, I liked Brandon more than I thought I would have. He was good to Liam. Once again, their talks hurt my heart because it brought back so much of Chase and Harper's story. The one thing I disagree most with is when Harper told Brandon she loved Chase, but was in love with him. I'm sorry but I think you'd want to lose your virginity to the person you were in love with.
With that being said, I loved Trusting Liam. Molly did such an amazing job weaving this story together. While it told the story of beloved characters from her other works, Molly made this Liam and Kennedy's story. Of course I left out a bunch of stuff because I want you to read this amazing book. If you haven't already, definitely go and one click Trusting Liam. I'm actually sad that I finished it because I adore Liam and Kennedy.
A five lip smack review for Trusting Liam. Kudos to Molly McAdams for continuing to do what she does best. Writing great, thought provoking stories with characters that feel insanely real and stay with you long after the story is over.
than a name. I’m not sure if the author did this intentionally or not.
It's strange how every time I came across that word my mind drifted
back to Taking Chances and Chase Grayson.
Emotional because of the heartbreaking, ugly tears, that was shed at the death of Chase. It all came back like a roaring river just saturating my mind and heart. Even after three years, I still feel it.
As teary eyed as I was it felt good to go back and now forward.
Deliriously happy, of course.
Being able to see what a wonderful and sexy man Chase's son Liam Taylor grew up to be warmed my heart; I needed that as a way of closure.
Déjà vu moments as I got to spend time with Harper, Brandon and Bree.
Now, about this story, Trusting Liam.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, only sometimes it can come
back and bite you in the ass when you least expect it.
When Liam Taylor is asked to show new transplants to California
Kennedy and Kira Ryan around,
to introduce them to his friends, he has no idea
whom he will be dealing with.
The one who got away, the one who still haunts his dreams and he
intends to make her his.
Kennedy isn't about to let anyone take control from her again.
Heartbroken over a failed relationship she promised herself to never, ever fall in love again.
I had my theories about the relationship but when it was revealed, I was like holy crapola! I wasn't expecting that.
Wait for it, wait for it, there it is!
I love when the author catches me off guard, when she surprises me with
a totally different scenario and this is a winner.
I liked both Kennedy and her twin Kira, each a different personality
yet so alike.
Hmmm, if I were younger piercings would definitely be on my body.
I can visualize how Kennedy looks with her sleeve of tats on her arms,
a big turn on for Liam.
Liam, gorgeous, spitting image of his biological father, blonde,
blue eyed and tatted up. Sweet as sugar and his nickname for
Kennedy, tickled me pink!
“Goodnight Moon” had me sighing with utter joy.
Swoon, I fell for him hard and fast!
You will not be disappointed when the two connect as it
Is HOT and consuming.
<b>Whether or not Kennedy was ready, or wanted it, I was getting ready to chase the girl who was already consuming my mind.</b>
Mixed in with the cat and mouse game played by Kennedy is
A little suspense, which is why she ended up in California.
When the past collides with the future, I cursed the author
wondering if my heart would once again be shattered.
I couldn’t believe what was happening.
Taking a deep breath I can say, I’m deliriously happy.
HEA and no cliffhanger.

Maybe a re-read of TC & SH might have made this even more emotional than it already was.
I loved their Vegas meeting, their one night of extreme pleasure and passion, and I loved that it was the girl to disappear.
Their re-union , one year later, Uh Oh
Loved the whole interwoven story line between Taking Chances and Forgiving Lies, it was so beautifully done.
Just love 'Uncle Mason' his reaction to Liam when the girls moved to California, he did make me chuckle.
Liam most definitely grew up to be one handsome devil, just like his papa. I love his relationship with Brandon, after everything that Brandon and Harper, had dealt with, they sure did an amazing job with Liam. He may have been a carbon copy of Chase, but he was not as such a manwhore, as I remember Chase being, before he finally let Harper in.
I was really excited to be getting Liam's story, after TC & SH and you most certainly didn't disappoint.
Chase's memory was always at the forefront of Liam while he was growing up, and that was absolutely.
Then we have Kash & Rachel's wild and very sexy daughters, Kira and Kennedy. Just loved how they both turned out.
Although they did not want to move across the Country, they actually got on with it, even against their own beliefs.
Kennedy knew who Liam was but was in denial, their first meeting at the Gym was fab, shocked maybe an understatement.
They were so made for each other, they just 'got' each other. I loved his little nicknames, but especially 'moon' such a personal reason, just made that a bit more special.
When Kennedy's past, came crashing into her present - Oh my! I thought Liam handled it brilliantly, Rhys (Kennedy's past) actually turned out to be OK, but even after the explanation, I was thinking NO WAY! Go back to where you came from, Leave them alone...
Tough times for both Kennedy and Liam, while she figured things out, and I'm glad she found a friend in Brian, I admit I had forgotten about him, but he came back in full technicolour.
I loved Kash and Rachel showing up, unannounced and loved it when Liam caught on about the Sour Patch Candy, and of course loved how Kash instantly disliked Liam, then finding Rhys with Kira - would loved pictures to have gone with that part.
Ahh, the epilogue, I had moisture going on! so so lovely, Chase gets to be remembered such a lovely ending.
I feel hearts all over the world are going to be full f love, sunshine and happiness after reading this love story.
Two very strong, independent characters who both know what they want, even if its smashing them head on.
High praise to Molly for the way the books became interwoven, so very cleverly done.
