Regaining Trust

Regaining Trust

This story isn’t about cheating it’s about making a mistake and taken accountability for your actions on both parts. It’s about learning to trust but also about how to communicate problems so that things like cheating and lonely ness can be avoided in the future.

What started as a heartbreaker ending up being one of my favorite ending ever. It was a truly wonderful story about how learning to trust again can change a relationship completely but in a good way. Highly recommended.

Regaining Trust

Regaining Trust – now available

Regaining Trust is now released out in the wild and available for purchase. Yes, I know. Release day was yesterday. But Nell, why didn’t you post something about it on your blog yesterday? you ask. To that I say that it’s a valid question and the answer is that I have and haven’t got a reason.

I was away from home (without my laptop) visiting my two-week old grandbaby for the first time, so I was busy cuddling and kissing and being enraptured by her. That being said, I could have scheduled a post like responsible author. But I didn’t. You’d think I’m an amateur, but it is what it is 🙂

Anyway. Regaining Trust is now available, so if you’re in the mood for an intensely emotional story about two people deeply in love, trying to repair what was broken, this is the book for you.

When workaholic Lawrence Weller walks in on the aftermath of his fiancé Frankie cheating on him, his world shatters. Frankie’s the love of his life, the only person he’s ever trusted, and the betrayal leaves him devastated.

Franklin Ennis makes a huge mistake that he regrets deeply before it’s even over. He pleads for a second chance, willing to do whatever it takes to save their relationship.

A love that deep doesn’t just stop, so Lawrence agrees to try. But mistakes don’t happen in a vacuum. Are they both willing to own up to their part? Will their love be enough to repair what was crushed? Can trust once broken be rebuilt?

Regaining Trust – excerpt

Today, it’s 22 days until the release of Regaining Trust, and I thought that I’d tease you a little with an excerpt. The sneak peak is from the first chapter, and the main conflict is in the blurb, so I there’s no need for a spoiler warning. I’m adding the blurb first though, if you’ve managed to miss it 🙂

Excerpt:

Frankie swallows several times before he speaks. “You’re home.”

I nod; my throat suddenly closing up and making it impossible for me to produce a sound.

His hands twitch, as though he wants to reach out and touch me. “I’m sorry,” he whispers.

I nod again.

“You have to believe me. I’m so, so sorry.” He chokes on the words.

I force my mouth to cooperate. “I believe you.”

His gaze meets mine, penetrates my very soul as he searches for answers. “But you’re angry.”

I avert my gaze. Am I angry? Heartbroken, devastated, yes. Is my trust betrayed? Yes. But angry? I don’t know. In the end, I settle for a shrug.

“Will you talk to me? Or at least listen when I talk?”

I scrub my palm over my face and hang my head. “I’m tired, Frankie.”

“Please, please, please.”

I straighten. “Not tonight. I have tomorrow off. We’ll talk tomorrow.”

“Okay.”

“Go to bed. I need a shower.”

“Will you join me? After?”

“No.”

He jerks as though I slapped him.

“I need some space,” I explain.

He curls up even more and swallows a whimper. “I understand. You take the bed, I’ll sleep on the couch.”

“You’re too tall for the couch.”

“I don’t care. I deserve to be uncomfortable.”

I don’t have the energy to argue so I nod and get up and walk into our bedroom without looking back at him. After my shower, I pull on an old T-shirt and soft sleep pants—more armor—but as I climb into bed, I remember Frankie curled into a tiny ball on our too-short couch, and I sigh.

I grab a blanket from the closet and one of his pillows from the bed and return to the den. He’s not sleeping but he doesn’t say anything when I enter, only follows my movements with his gaze as I approach.

“Head up,” I mumble and when he obeys, I slide the pillow underneath him, then spread the blanket over his curled-up frame.

To avoid looking at him, I don’t linger. As soon as I’m done, I turn and start walking away.

His broken voice stops me. “Why are you always so thoughtful? Even now?”

I want to walk away without answering his question, but I promised myself a long time ago to always communicate, to not be like my parents, so I can’t ignore him. It’s not who I am.

“I love you,” I say. “I don’t just stop loving you, no matter what.”

“You love me.” He sounds as though he hasn’t expected me to say it ever again.

I nod, back still turned to him. “But I don’t know if that’s enough. Sleep. We’ll talk tomorrow.”
