Trust In You – Julia Firlotte

Today I have the honour of sharing an extract from Trust In You by Julia Firlotte. Many thanks to Julia for allowing me to share this piece of the book, and to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in the blog tour.


From the moment she met him, Ella Peterson had questions. As always, though, she’s too shy to ask.

Older and sexy as hell, mysterious Adam Brook soon sweeps sheltered Ella off her feet; but is he as perfect as he appears to be, or is there more to him than he’s telling her?

Ella’s world has already turned upside down after moving from England to rural Kansas. She and her sisters were hoping for a more secure future, but instead find that life can be tough when jobs are scarce and the stakes often higher than anticipated.

When events spiral out of Ella’s control, she learns the person she needs to rely on most is herself and her instincts on who to trust in the future.

It’s just that her instincts are screaming at her to trust Adam; it’s what he tells her that makes that a problem.

I expect him to talk but he doesn’t, instead he opens the glove box where the cupboard lighting reveals a handgun inside. I freeze at the sight of it. I know it’s almost standard to carry one here, but it’s not a sight I’m used to. Adam reaches inside and pulls out a leather pouch. I watch in horrified silence as he slides a curved blade out of it. Does he always carry that around in his truck?

He then pins my wrists on his thigh and uses the razor-sharp knife to slice the rope before discarding it. He turns my wrists over in his hands to look at them.

‘Put some ointment on them when you get in, ok?’ he says softly. Our eyes lock on each other’s and I stare back wide-eyed and silent. His expression is so many emotions all at once: regretful, angry, protective. I’m so confused. He runs his hand down the side of my cheek and my skin comes alive under his fingertips. I don’t know what to say or do and there’s a pause as he tries to find the right words.

‘That wasn’t really me; you remember I told you that, right?’ He speaks quietly, but I can tell he means it. What I can’t tell is whether I believe him, there was just so much I overheard which I don’t understand.
