Today is my stop on the blog tour for "Trust in You" by Julia Firlotte and my first ever tour for Rachel over at Rachel's Random Resources :D
About the book
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.

A first love summer romance full of intrigue, lust and lies.
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.
This is the first book in the Falling for You series and ends with a 'happy for now' conclusion.
Ella Peterson is doing what she can to make ends meet and keep the family afloat. Coming from England to Kansas she has huge changes ahead. Trying her hand at selling food/produce from the farm is what brings her into contact with the older and attractive Adam. Ella is very naive with the opposite sex and relationships, Adam is very experienced in that and more. When Ella makes some bad choices to try and keep her family above board she gets caught up with some very dangerous people.
So the book is a bit of a mixed bag, mild echos of 50 shades, she is attracted to this older experienced guy, she is very innocent and gets herself into some daunting situations. You have the whole danger aspect from getting mixed up with some bad guys, being so inexperienced so flits from one situation to another, danger just around the corner. Then she would do something to show inner strength, guts, ballsy, I went back and forth on my thoughts of her pretty much the whole book!
Ella is one of those characters, well for me, I flip flopped on how I felt, sometimes I really liked her because she is so sweet, untainted, innocent then I would be frustrated at what she would do or say or be a bit remiss and end up in hot water. The author carves a good cast of characters, some really seedy, bad, dangerous, predatory - others kind, loyal, family orientated, selfless.
There is enough romance, lusty infatuation to keep the romantic readers in bliss but there was also the danger, thriller aspect of good guys vs bad guys and I really enjoyed reading these. Pacey, shocking, thriller so if you like your romance to have a bit more edge and drama you will love this. I am looking forward to book two to see what is coming next.
