SLOWLY WE TRUST by Chelsea M. Cameron (Excerpt/Giveaway)

We're excited to share an excerpt with you from Chelsea M. Cameron's SLOWLY WE TRUST, a new adult Contemporary book and part of the Fall and Rise series

Book #3
by Chelsea M. Cameron 
April 2014
Audrey Valdez didn’t mean to fall for Will Anders. He isn’t her type. At all. But his goofy smile, Star Wars quotes and athletic body make it impossible. She's lived so long in the darkness and Will is like the sun. He makes her laugh more than she has in years and cares for her more than her own family.

But there are things about Audrey that Will doesn't know, things he can't know. She tries to push him away, but he just ends up getting closer to her, and to her secret. Is the risk of losing him forever worth the chance a being with the only person she's ever loved who has loved her back?


“Are you just realizing this, or have you known all along that you didn’t want to be with me?” I would have to choose my words carefully, so I didn’t give him the wrong idea. Before he’d shared his feelings, I could pretend that this wasn’t anything serious. We were just going out and having fun and flirting and kissing. Nothing more. I thought I’d kept my distance enough that Will wouldn’t feel that way about me—that he couldn’t—but I’d underestimated Will Anders, and it wasn’t the first time.
“It’s not that I don’t want to be with you. I do. But I can’t . . . I can’t do the relationship thing.” That was the best way to put it so he would understand.
He looked down at his hands.
“Then what have we been doing up until now?” He turned his head and I had to look away from his eyes.
“We’d never declared that we were together, so I just thought we were . . . dating, for lack of a better term. You can date without it being serious.” Whenever anyone had asked if we were together, Will had sensed that I was uncomfortable with the topic and he’d changed the subject. If he did ask about it, I always put him off. I couldn’t do that anymore. It was time to define what we were, or what we were going to be.
“I know about dating, Aud. I’ve dated girls before. I’ve hooked up with girls before. But you’re . . . you. You’re different. I thought this was different. I was with another girl for almost two years and I didn’t feel this way, or share things with her like I do with you. I’m sorry if what I said scared you, but I wanted you to know I was committed to this, to making this work . . .” I stopped him from talking with a kiss. He and Lottie both had a tendency to ramble and I couldn’t listen to him trying to explain himself anymore.
So I kissed him, but he pushed me away.
“What was that? You say that you don’t want to be together, and then you kiss me. What is going on with you, Aud?” He plucked some confetti from my hair and I pushed his hand away.
“Nothing is going on with me, Will.” Of course, that was a lie.
