Sometimes, trusting your instincts leads to happiness and love.
After coming out, life took a turn for the worst. I knew people would view me differently, of course I did, but… See, here’s the thing. How does a person cope when a few of their work colleagues play such a cruel trick that it leaves them wondering if they’ll ever trust anyone again? It happened to me, and trusting isn’t something I do easily now.
Until James comes along. He’s a work colleague too, but my issue is, I keep thinking he’s playing another trick. You know, reeling me in, making me think he’s a good bloke.
He’s asked me to go out with him and although I should maybe get to know him a bit better first, I’ve said I’ll go. I need to get back out there, live a little. And if I get hurt? Well, I’ll just have to deal with it. Again.
Trust is as short and sweet read. Trevor has been humiliated at work because of his sexuality. He is always on guard because of the bullying, so when a co-worker talks to him during lunch he automatically assumes that the guy is trying to humiliate him. James has had a crush on Trevor for a long time, but didn’t know how to approach the guy and ask him if he was gay or interested. He hates that Trevor has been so hurt, but tells him things will get better.
While I enjoyed the sweetness between the two guys, I got the impression that they were very young. They came across as older teens/young 20’s. But, it was still a sweet relationship that was in the early stages. I really enjoyed that the writer did not have them jump into bed immediately. They were getting to know each other – something young characters don’t often do. It was a cute M/M story that was a very quick read.
