“Knock knock!”“Um… Who’s there?”
Yeah. That was me, on my last date. Before you feel sorry for me you should know that I was the one telling the jokes. Jokes as in plural, because I didn’t stop with just one. Of course not.
Hi, I’m Chloe Scott. The most awkward single girl in the city.But I’m going to get it together. I am.
I’m going to learn how to date like a grown up.I’m going to have an orgasm not given to myself. I’m going to fall in love and live happily ever after.
Right after I get out of this interrogation room.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
OMG! How is it possible to laugh so much with one book? Ms. Aston has done it again for me, creating relatable and likable characters that are still weird and awkward as hell but who you can’t help but love.
Chloe is an elementary school teacher. She rocks at her job, the under tens love her and she is a fantastic teacher. Unfortunately for her, grownups are not really her thing. Adults make her uncomfortable, and men? Pfff, men make her almost catatonic… and her anxiety shows in incredibly lame jokes and inappropriate conversation topics.
So it’s safe to say her dating life is a complete disaster. When the worst date ever ends with her in an interrogation room, she never suspected she’d get to meet her good friend Sophie’s brother. Her FBI agent brother. The one they’ve been trying to set her up with. Of course, now her friends can never know she already met him or they won’t let her live that awful date down.
Boyd can’t believe the sweet girl he can’t stop thinking about is her little sister’s friend, the one she’s been pushing at him that he hadn’t gotten to meet yet. But then he gets to see her in action… and boy, is she a mess around guys. How can he get to know her without triggering her social anxiety? Good thing Boyd is a resourceful guy, and patient. And sweet. And OMG he was just perfect. I want to go Penny-and-Boyding with him so hard. I’m thinking Boyd is my “best book boyfriend of the month” I just loved him that much.
At first, I thought Chloe’s anxiety issues and her way to process things by thinking and overthinking them would drive me crazy. Fortunately, her mind worked in such a quirky way that I found myself smiling instead of wanting to punch her in the face.
Boyd and Chloe’s chemistry was fantastic, we get to see all the previous couples and the whole book was hilarious. Ms. Aston is turning into one of my favorite new authors and I can’t wait to read what will come next.
Trust will definitely be better read in the suggested order, as it contains mild spoilers to the previous couple’s stories, but can absolutely be enjoyed as a standalone. I loved it.
Rating: 4.5 “Perfect like Mary Poppins” Stars

I need to remember to be careful with this girl. She’s so… unsure of herself. She seems self-reliant, yet there’s this undercurrent of doubt that I don’t yet understand.
She walks across the studio and pulls a denim jacket from a small closet and shrugs into it, then picks up her bag and slings it over her shoulder. “Are you ready?”
I nod and follow her out, watching as she locks the door then tugs on it to make sure it’s locked. We take the elevator down in silence then hit the sidewalk outside before she asks if we’re walking or driving.
“Driving,” I tell her, nodding to the parking spot I got in front of her building. I unlock the car and open the passenger door for her before walking around and getting behind the wheel.
“This is nice,” she says, glancing around the interior of my Range Rover. “This is more James Bond than FBI though,” she says, with a little wrinkle of her nose, her forehead creasing in concern.
“Are you disappointed?”
She shrugs. “It is a nice car,” she says as she buckles herself in and crosses her legs, resting her hands on her knees. “But I don’t think it’s government-issued.”
I laugh. “It’s not. Does that disappoint you?” I ask, starting the car and merging into traffic.
“I guess it’s okay.” Another shrug.
I take a right onto the Schuylkill and ask if she’s learned any new knock-knock jokes since I last saw her.
She turns her head and gives me a look. “Funny.”
“I’m genuinely curious,” I say. “You were killing it the other night.”
“No. But speaking of killing, did you know that at any given time, there are between twenty and fifty serial killers in the United States? Did you know that?” She turns in her seat to look at me, her eyes wide with interest.
“That’s quite the transition, from knock-knock jokes to serial killers,” I comment while turning on the ramp to the I-676.
“Oh, yeah. Sorry.” She shakes her head. “I just thought it would be fewer.”
“Like ten. I thought it would be ten. Maybe fifteen.”
“Onewould think.” I nod. Not really. Who thinks about this shit?
