I'm new to the Fall and Rise series and although there were definitely aspects of the book I missed in the first two books, I was able to enjoy Slowly We Trust as a standalone.
Audrey and Will are friends, well sort of. They've been kinda dating, without dating and both really like each other. Audrey has has a pretty big secret which she think means she doesn't deserve kind, charming and geeky Will. I didn't totally get her reasoning here but I could understand why she kept this big secret and why she felt she couldn't be with him.
Will is that rare thing in NA fiction: a handsome caring and patient teenage guy. Seriously, Will has a LOT of patience when it comes to Audrey, because she inadvertently messes him around a lot! I'd have told her to shove it along time ago, but thankfully Will's far more dedicated and patient than I am.
The entire gang (group of friends) are all pretty involved in their relationship and I liked how they all supported each other. The only thing I would say here is sometimes I wasn't entirely sure how old they were supposed to be. Sometimes they seemed mid teens then they'd talk about sex and Uni and I'd realised they had finished high school. I think this is down to the dialogue which makes them seem a little immature at times. Now don't get me wrong I enjoyed the tone and the story, I just wasn't always sure of their setting/ages - BUT I think that perhaps this clearer if you start at book one instead of three?!
I really liked the culture references, and because I'm a big sci-fi/fantasy nerd I really appreciated the Star Wars and Harry Potter love.
I received a review copy
At the start of the book Audrey is weighed down by an incident in the past, she is so affected by it that she deals as if she doesn’t deserve to have friends let alone a relationship with Will. She creates all sorts of barriers that she believes are to protect herself and the people around her. Her ‘secret’ is so obvious right from the beginning and really of little consequence in the grand scheme of things. However, the way in which she has been treated by her parents; the lack of affection and support she has had to endure, have had a profound affect on the way she views how other people will react. In all honesty is was quite heart-breaking that Audrey felt this way. The reason I wanted to shake her was because she needed to see that no matter what the people around her would not treat her like her parents had. The dynamic of the group of friends is a support system, they have the ‘family’ air to their interactions, reflected in the way they accept each other without judgement.
No matter how Audrey tries to push Will away they are drawn together like magnets. For all their surface differences they are surprisingly alike when you have the insight of their inner monologues. The Harry Potter and Star Wars references dotted throughout the narrative add to the adore-a-geek fest this series possesses.
The tension within the plot comes not from Audrey’s secret itself but the way in which she sneaks around in order to try to hide it. Leading to much worse assumptions. The flow of the story is well-balanced, drawing you in and holding you with Audrey and Will til the very last page.
I loved seeing the other characters within the story and keeping up to date with the events in their lives. I hope we get a story set 10 years in the future in order for me to keep my connection with the characters :)
Although this novel wasn't as good as the previous two books, it was still good.
Will and Audrey are kinda together but Aid has this push him away pull him closer thing going on. She also has a secret which I had guessed early on and was not at all surprised when it was revealed.
I felt sorry for Will with the way that Audrey was treating him, but they constant will they, won't they got annoying.
We meet another character in the book, Eddie. Audrey had known him from her previous school and we have to feel sorry for him with what landed in his lap after Audrey's revelation. It may have taken him a few days, but he really acted like a decent chap and I hope he gets a HEA.

So anyways this was another great book to add to this series collection. Of course I new early on in the beginning when Audrey, finally gave into will, what her secret was kinda going to be. Once you start to realize and obviously know what her secret is you can understand and see why she pushes will away so much in the beginning. But Will is so perfect, he's the most caring person you could ever ask for and so sweet at wanting to please Audrey so much. Audrey is slightly quiet and its understanding how she has this big secret that's she's afraid to let anyone find out about/know. Her parents weren't exactly the best but not horribly bad, and what she went through and how she grew up makes sense with her secret. In the book Audrey talks about her aunt a little and how she feels closer to her. Knowing about her aunt Makes me actually love her a lot. she seems so nice, loving, and caring more than Audrey's own parents, you can really see why she would be closer to her than her own mother. I don't know what I would do if I was ever in her shoes, I think I would just cry. Again like the first two books I love the characters and how they are such a close group of friends/family. I don't think it would be as good without them they're to much of a big part of each story. I think Audrey and wills story was really good and of course I had the sniffles many times again like the fist two. I loved all the steaminess in the book which was a little wowzers at times "I had many blushing moments". Their love is so perfect for each other. I'm happy with how everything turns out in the end but a little sad that it's almost over with only one book left. I don't want it to be the end.
So again if asked I would defiant recommend this book it is really good.
Well...that excitement quickly turned to annoyance when I started this book and realised it was going all the way back to the beginning. I didn't need to re-live everything between these two from the time they met. And for a book that's only about 250 pages long, it took me over a week to read it. Mostly because if these two weren't having sex, they were internally doubting the relationship and, in Audrey's case, worrying about a secret being revealed. (BTW, as a reader, you can guess the secret really early on and after that the book really gets boring).
I'm really sad to give less than a stellar review, but if this book had been written more as a companion novella to Deeper We Fall and Faster We Burn (and kept to less than 150 pages), I would have loved the story. I think Audrey and Will really complement each other as characters, both have their nerdiness that really works together, both are involved students that value getting good grades and studying hard.
Also, as is the case with self-published books, there were some random and odd typos or word mistakes that popped up throughout. In some cases, entire words were missing thus completely changing the meaning of the sentence. I usually can ignore them, but since I wasn't really involved in this book I seemed to find them every time.
