Product description

Product Description

Tanner Collins is the embodiment of perfection—tall, dark, sinfully sexy—and completely out of Juliana Shea's league. Knowing she'd never survive a repeat of her last disastrous relationship, she parks Tanner firmly in the friend zone. But man, he's hard to resist.

Juliana is exactly what Tanner wants, and he's determined to win her over with his kindness and humor… But one night—a night he can't even remember—threatens to take it all away.

With the flick of a "send" button, their hope for a future together is shattered. But Tanner isn't the type to give up on what he wants—and he wants Juliana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked! 9 May 2017
By Naughty Smut Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I can’t tell you how much I loved this book. From the very beginning you are hooked and don’t want to put this book down. This is a sweet contemporary romance with an amazing plot. Juliana is a girl who has a huge heart even though she has been repeated hurt in the past. She is guarded and only has let down her walls for her best friend Devon. Tanner is a walking wet dream but has charm and charisma to go with his good looks. He is a true gentleman and even in rough water never wavers on his feeling for Jules and stands behind the fact that he said he would wait forever! There were a few twists that I honestly didn’t see coming and then there were other parts of the book where you feel the true gut wrenching pain of Jules and Tanner. Lexi Lawton did an amazing job with this book and it is a must read!
4.0 out of 5 stars How much do you trust the one your with? 9 May 2017

Trusting Tanner is a story about love and trust and the complications of relationships. It's about how the past can linger and hurt us long after its over and how one small question of trust can spiral out of control and leave us questioning everything. It's about giving to much attention to outside influences rather than trusting our instincts when it comes to our relationships.

Julianna has been hurt in the past, she's gone through life alone for the most part, and her last serious boyfriend hurt her in many ways, but mostly by cheating on her. Because of this history, she's sort of sworn off men(boys) and decided to focus on school. When her best friend, Devon's frat brother takes a liking to her - Julianna fights hard against it - not wanting to get hurt again, but Tanner isn't going away easily.

Tanner liked what he saw the first time he glimpsed Julianna. He was determined to win her over, starting with friendship. I liked that he pushed himself towards her from the start but also tried to move at her pace a little. Tanner didn't understand fully why Julianna was so put off by a relationship - but he did understand to win her over, he'd have to be careful and slow. I liked Tanner for the most part, but I didn't fully understand his issues with trusting in Julianna's friendship with Devon.

As their friendship grew, so did their feelings and eventually there was no denying there was more than friendship between them. Julianna and Tanner went through a lot in this book, mostly struggles with having faith and trusting in each other. At times their trust issues frustrtated me because it was clear how they felt about each other, but I also understood where those issues stemmed from. Their growth from strangers to friends to more moved at a steady pace and was realistic and pulled me into the story.

What Tanner and Julianna never expected was for obstacles to get in between them, for there to be someone out to hurt them both. When a final event happens to tear them apart it was easy to see how lost and hurt both Tanner and Julianna were; how they struggled to be apart, but also that there was so much to work through before they could be back together. The lack of complete trust between them does more harm to their relationship as it allowed for them to take info from outside sources to deepend the damage of one night.

Trusting Tanner delivered a story of two people finding something right with one another, finding their other half, but also being fool enough to not trust their instincts. Tanner and Julianna had to fight for each other, they had to give in to trust, believe in each other and believe in their feelings. I really enjoyed watching as this played out, because it wasn't an easy road for them, not from teh start. Julianna's trust issues were fully relatable and believable, she sold her heartbreak and the impossibility of losing Tanner while wanting nothing more than him by her side.

Being the first book in the series, Trusting Tanner also introduced us to Tanner's brothers, who were a fun addition to the story. Not only is their love and familial bond with their brother enjoyable but they added a little bit extra to the story; Drama at times, and humor at others. The most important thing to see was their closeness as a family and how they would do anything for each other.

Although my college years are long gone, I remember those years with all the life questions and decisions that had to be made and the drama… Trusting Tanner is the first book in the new ‘the Collins Brothers Series’ by Lexi Lawton. It’s the story of Juliana and Tanner, who meet at college and gradually fall in love. I like their story.

“Do I have to?” “Do you have to what?” Slowly, she turned on her stool and faced him. Her big brown eyes were unreadable, but they were breathtaking. Damn, he never knew eyes could be so sexy. “Call you Jules? Maybe I want to call you Juliana.” “Why?”

Juliana is back for a new year at college. Last year has been difficult; she felt lonely and her boyfriend turned out to be a total douche bag. This year, she’s looking for peaceful and quiet, but the moment she meets her new roommate Rebecca, Juliana knows that will be difficult. Like Juliana, Tanner is a bit done with the party-hardy campus lifestyle. Yes, he likes the occasional party, but to focus more on his studies he rents an apartment of-campus. Despite his more serious attitude, Tanner is a popular guy with lots of friends and girls who want him. When Juliana and Tanner get teamed-up in one of their classes, it’s inevitable they start to have feelings for each other.

“My treat.” She glanced up to find Tanner standing next to her, smiling. Where the hell did he come from? Her heart raced, and she licked her lips. “You really didn’t have to do that.” “I know. I wanted to.”

After her last relationship ended with a lot of drama, Juliana has sworn off guys. She just wants to do her thing and spend some time with her best friend Devon. The moment she sees Tanner, she’s drawn to him, but she also sees he’s Mr. Popular with written potential heartbreak all over him. So when they’re paired up at one of their classes, Juliana firmly plants Tanner in the friendzone. Tanner is a persistent guy who knows what he wants and who he wants, in this case the beautiful, sweet Juliana. Because of her experience with guys he knows he really has to win her over, but Tanner knows she’s worth it. After some dancing around each other and some drama they have a shot at something real.

Trusting Tanner is a typical college love story with all the usual characters; the sweet heroine, the popular hero, the heroine’s male best friend (is he into the heroine or not?) and the skanky villain. In my country, we don’t have the campus lifestyle, so sometimes I like to read about all the college drama that you get with so many young people living together away from their parents. I understand Juliana’s issues with guys, but sometimes I wanted to shake some sense into her; Not Every Guy is your Ex, sweetie! And Tanner? I really like that despite his popularity, he isn’t the usual college manwhore.

“I. Love. You.” He punctuated each word with a kiss to her neck until he found her lips once more. Juliana gently scraped her fingernails along his nape, and he shivered. “I love you,” she whispered.

I like Juliana and Tanner. I give Trusting Tanner 4 stars.

Juliana Shea has no desire for a relationship: her heart was broken over six months ago when she found her then boyfriend cheating on her. With only one friend - Devon - she is content to focus on her studies. However, her plans for the semester are thrown into disarray with her new roommate and Tanner Collins. Like Juliana, Tanner is a pre-med student so is in most of Juliana's classes. He's attracted to her and wants a relationship with her. Juliana struggles to keep Tanner as a friend only while he works to convince her that giving a relationship a try is the right move to make.

I enjoyed reading this first book in the series. Tanner comes across as a little too perfect and I was never quite clear why he wanted a relationship with Juliana, beyond the physical attraction he had to her. His dogged pursuit in face of her repeated friend-zoning never reaches the level of creepy and he has a number of admirable traits. I did, however, find Juliana's back and forth regarding entering a relationship or not frustrating. It seemed as if the same arguments were repeated over and over and Tanner's patience in face of this was impressive.

There were other aspects I found frustrating. I didn't love the double standard employed by Juliana: it was fine for her to question Tanner's sincerity whenever he was around attractive women, but he couldn't question her friendship with Devon. I found it strange that Juliana had no friends beyond Devon and wouldn't know her roommate before moving in - as a junior, Juliana should have had her choice of roommate or at least a single. Instead, it seemed that the roommate was added merely for drama's sake. Juliana is wary of losing those she is close to so has few friends but it was not clear to me why she gave Tanner a chance - except that she found him attractive.

Despite this, I did enjoy reading <i>Trusting Tanner</i>. In the end, Tanner and Juliana are college kids and this is a cute college romance.

NB: I was given a copy through Netgalley and have voluntarily reviewed it.
