Lacey may have escaped a cult with the aid of firefighter Hunter, but moving on is another story. As they’re drawn back together on their college campus, will Hunter be able to help Lacey recover—and find the courage to act on their unspoken feelings?
Twenty-year-old Lacey Simon jumped from a building on fire to escape the cult her stepdad was leading, so college should be oh-so easy. Except Lacey can’t seem to move on. Not only does she receive threatening letters, she’s also failing her classes. Fun times. Only Hunter, the firefighter who saved her from the fire and who’s been there for her ever since, reminds her that her stepdad no longer dictates her future. He tutors her in English, and he makes her laugh, blush, and helps her be more daring. But why does it feel like he’s only doing this to redeem himself from mistakes of his past?
Twenty-one-year-old Hunter Harrington used to think that he was invincible until a frat party turned tragic and he discovered a dead body in the pool. Ever since that day, he’s been doing his best to keep his grades up and help others. Yep, he even joined the volunteer firefighters’ college program. When he’s accused of plagiarism, he’s forced to spend more time with Lacey. Not that he minds. He’d love to get even closer. But he has secrets of his own that could destroy their relationship before it even starts. And can he really keep her safe?
Can they trust themselves and each other enough to no longer be afraid to love and…to stay alive? Discover Lacey and Hunter’s story in Trust Me, Trust Me Not, the third stand-alone book in the Gavert City series.

Trust Me, Trust Me Not is the third book in the Gavert City series. Although it is a standalone, it’s best to read this series in order. Trust Me, Trust Me Not is Lacey’s story. Lacey is dealing with her trauma of surviving the cult and learning to live again. But just because the cult is disbanded, doesn’t mean the threats are finished. This story was action-packed with Lacey and Hunter both fighting their demons while trying to develop a relationship. I enjoyed this book and love that Lacey is a fighter. The climax was insane and I didn’t want to stop listening. And while I took me a while to get into Trust Me, Trust Me Not I truly enjoyed it. I love the suspense and did not see the ultimate threat coming. Elodie Nowodazkij is a fantastic writer and I’m glad I found her and this series.
I received this audiobook for free from Audiobooks Unleashed. This is my honest and voluntary review.
