USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Nicole Williams delivers a seductive summer romance worth swooning over. Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Stephanie Perkins.

Phoenix can't imagine anything worse than being shipped off to family summer camp. Her parents have been fighting for the past two years--do they seriously think being crammed in a cabin with Phoenix and her little brother, Harry, will make things better? 

On top of that, Phoenix is stuck training with Callum--the head counselor who is seriously cute but a complete know-it-all. His hot-cold attitude means he's impossible to figure out--and even harder to rely on. But despite her better judgment, Phoenix is attracted to Callum. And he's promising Phoenix a summer she'll never forget. Can she trust him? Or is this just another lie?

Trusting You and Other Lies was such a cute read!! It started with Phoenix and her family heading to the mountains to spend the Summer at a camp. She didn't want to go and resented her parents for making her go because things were a little strained between both her parents, and herself. She was still close with her younger brother and I liked seeing her protect him when she could.

Phoenix took on a councillor role at the camp, so she could earn some cash over the summer. She was unsure at first, made some mistakes and pushed herself when she needed to. But it was hard for her to get the approval from her leader, Callum. He was a gorgeous guy, who carried the world on his shoulders. He took his job seriously and if you made a mistake, you had to work back his trust.

Both Phoenix and Callum had a lot of trust issues, and they both struggled to let people in. Their stories were revealed along the way and I could see them both growing into stronger people. I liked seeing them work together and study together as their relationship strengthened.

I love the way that Nicole Williams wove this story! There was a lot of growth for all the characters: Phoenix, Callum and her parents. I liked that they all went into the Summer a little lost but were all stronger and better towards the end. Nicole Williams knows how to create a world that you can connect to and get lost in. I thoroughly enjoyed the narration by Jorjeana Marie as well, she switched into each character nicely and was pleasant to listen to. I'll be picking up more reads she narrates in the future, that's for sure!

Today I have the beginning of the opening chapter to share with you. It sets up how Phoenix is feeling about her summer. I hope you enjoy it!
