“Love cannot be defined by age or time, but by the way that person makes you feel. He made me feel completely vulnerable, but vulnerability I have learned is a gift, one that I will gladly accept from Madison Raine.”
Madison had irrevocably changed me. He opened me up to feel things I had never felt, and he never judged me for my past. In the short amount of time I had known him, I had fallen in love with him and everything he encompassed. He showed me how to live, how to enjoy life, but best of all, he showed me how to love. They say bad things happen to good people, well that saying rang truer to me now than ever before. Madison is gone. He is off at school in Arizona, and I just couldn’t bring myself to leave with him. That was my first mistake.
See the thing about trouble is, it will always find you. Trouble found me the night he left, and that night forever changed me. Now I am fighting my way back, alone.
Leaving Kayla was one of the hardest things I had ever had to do. To say I regret my decision to leave her behind, would be an understatement. My world shifted when I met her and I would forever be changed. Everything felt different now that I was away, everything with her at least. Something was wrong, I could feel it. I needed to go to her to find out what this feeling was, but would she trust me enough to tell me, and could I trust her to forgive me.
“When life, love and heart breaking circumstances stand to pull apart a bond so strong, what do you do without trust?”
My Thoughts <3:
I really think I have to take a few deep breaths! 1….2…3… Ok, I think I’m ready. I sat down to read This Trust of Mine about 11pm or so… I finished like by 1am. Then I thought to myself, I’ll write my review tomorrow… NOT LIKELY! I couldn’t turn my brain off! It was a freakin’ rollercoaster ride and I loved it! I am almost at a loss for words.
If you haven’t read This Love of Mine (Raine #1,) you need to start there. Kayla and Madison have a relationship that has been tested, but in my opinion is meant to be. Madison’s makes choices that effect both of them. He leaves to follow his dreams when Kayla needs him the most.
Throughout this entire book, you learn about Madison and Kayla. What makes their hearts beat, hearts break, and how important family/relationships are to them. Not to mention you are totally left with a MAJOR cliffhanger at the end… but I had a hunch that was what was going to happen….I’m not spoil it for ya 😉
In Raine #2, We learn a lot about both sides of Grandparents. I will say that currently, I am in the situation that Madison is faced (which I will not give away either.) I think that is the main reason I couldn’t stop thinking about this book last night. It was very real for me, and I know will be real for others. You will be able to put yourself in his shoes… cry, remember who you love, make you think twice about how you spend your time with other, and how to put others first.
Kayla continues to be the strong willed young lady that she was in Raine #1. Madison is still the hot, sexy, baseball player, with a country accent, killer voice, and loves Madison through and through.
If you haven’t met Kayla & Madison, you are totally missing out on a one of a kind love. This story will have you begging for more, praying for every character, feeling like you are going to suffocate from all the pain, love, friendships, mourning, and the fact that you will hold your breath because you have to know what is going to happen next.
Since it’s over a month till July, I better not hold me breath 😉 but I can PROMISE you, I’m going to be first in line to have it in my hand, and finding out the destiny of Kayla and Madison! So if you ❤ a little thing called love in the form of a rollercoster… the Raine Series is for you!
Amanda Bennett, you never cease to amaze me! I am always waiting ever so unpatiently for your next book… you truly are an amazing author with an amazing <3!~

My feet left the ground with the strength of his arms pulling me up and into him. My arms instinctively wrapped tightly around his neck with the strength of a thousand men. I breathed in his scent and my lips grazed the base of his heated neck. He was here. He was actually here in front of me and he was touching me with those unbelievable hands. My eyes fluttered shut as his grip on my waist tightened enough for me to feel his excitement against my belly. I let a small knowing smile creep across my face with the knowledge that I still affected him so. When I could finally find the words to speak, beat me to the punch, as always. ~Kayla
