Author: Beverley Kendall
Series: Trapped #0.5
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: May 6th 2014

Looking back, I should have seen it coming.

Paige didn’t like that I went so far away to university. But it was going to only be for two years. She'd join me after she did her two years at community college. I thought we could swing that no problem. We were solid.

But she hated the distance. She hated not seeing me every day. She complained that I didn’t come home enough. She hated that for months on end, texting and phone calls were our only form of communication. It wasn’t enough.

She'd ask about the girls on campus. She’d gotten it into her head that girls were always making a play for me. I laughed and told her, even if that were true, I’d never cheat on her. She didn't seem completely reassured by that.

The bottom line is, Paige thought she was losing me. She wanted me home with her. But I could never imagine the level she'd sink to—the trap she’d set to make that happen.

And like an idiot I walked right into it.

And it’s a mistake I'm going to have to pay for the rest of my life.

This is the first book that I have read of Beverly's and I really enjoyed it. It is a short novella which gave me insight into what happened between the two main characters: Paige and Mitch. 

The Trap shows us what happened between two people, who make a mistake that are deep in love. I liked seeing how both characters deal with the situation and what decisions they make in regards to their future. When further details spill out, it makes it harder for the both of them. It is slightly heartbreaking, but I'm proud of the girl that Paige is. She steps up and takes responsibility while Mitch wallows in guilt and denial. Mitch's doubts turned him into a jerk and he was quick to run away I think he needed a serious ass whooping!!

Beverly has developed some characters that are easy to relate to and I am keen to see what happens between them now. The Trap was a great introduction to the Trapped series and I was flicking the pages eager to see how things would turn out. The first chapter of Trapped was in the back and it left me gasping to see what happens next!

  1. I thought it said 'The Tramp' at first, which would've totally caught my interest too. LOL.

  2. I'm in love with the NA contemporary genre at the moment, and I'm always on the look out for books for my TBR (so I know to get them audio when it comes out) and this looks like a great addition :)
