Four reasons I loved REST & TRUST:
1. Sadie! She’s a complex heroine. She’s an almost 25 year old woman who works in the geek world. She’s smart and by smart I mean – during her high school and university days she graduated the top of her class. Unfortunately, this Fanetti woman has a heartbreaking past. Her past tore me up. It made me want to hug my kids and wrap them in bubblewrap. Even though Sadie’s brokenness made me want to tuck her in my pocket and protect her… she was strong.
2. Sherlock! He’s a grade-A geek. While he’s a bad boy biker don’t let appearances fool you because he has the heart of gold. The loyalty he has for his club and for the people in his life was honorable. A lot of guys would have seen Sadie in her “fizzy” state (lack of control) and walked away from her. But not Sherlock he became what she needed – actually he was already what she need; someone she could trust to be there for her no matter what. Plus, Sherlock is a Horde and those men seemed attract women who are multifaceted. ”You can trust me, Sadie. Believe in us.”
3. Gordon! I love this secondary character. He’s like a father figure to Sadie. He brought me to tears because of the love and support he gave Sadie. Especially in her darkest hours.
4. Family is where it’s at. The Horde family is complex and yet it’s simple too. How all these bikers are connected together to form a complex family tree and yet it’s really simple why this family dynamic works so well together. The support and respect they have for one another creates an unbreakable bond between the brotherhood. OMG – all the Horde children were so adorable. I wanted to be there in the room with Sadie playing with all the kids and tying their shoelaces when they came undone.
Four is my favorite number and while there are more things I loved about this book I’m going to let you discover them on your own. I did have another one of those moments when I started REST & TRUST where I knew I was going to love this one. I’m not sure how Ms. Fanetti keeps making me say, “This is my new favorite” but she’s done it again. I’m in love with this story. I love how the characters are flawed and how their story feels authentic. I could imagine this as someone’s love story in the real world. If you haven’t read anything by Ms. Fanetti you’re missing out.
Continuing story where secondary characters from the first book become the main focus in subsequent books.
Book 1 – Muse | Book 2 – Demon | Book 3 – Connor | Book 4 – Trick | Book 5 – Sherlock

How do you make each book better then the previous? You boggle my mind!
Not sure if I was supposed to be smiling like a lunatic while tears rolled down my face … I think that’s called insanity? But I love that you put me there.
I love that you made me cry AGAIN. I love that you write characters with heart and soul. I love that you can put me in a day long (or even week long) tailspin of aftershock (aka book hangover). And I adore that you can make me feel like my real life has been enriched from reading one of your books.
Trick (Knife & Flesh) will remain my fave Night Horde man (NO, fuck that, he’s my fave fictional man, period) but DAMN! Sherlock & Sadie were absolutely perfect. I’d be a complete liar if I didn’t admit to having a giant crush on Sherlock and maybe even Gordon, oh and quite possibly Sadie too.
The drama going on with the MC is crazy! (Why, Susan? Why?) But I’m so glad that you’re not afraid to cross lines or make political statements. The plot is so friggin’ THICK right now, I can hardly stand it!
This book …. THIS BOOK!!! I curse you for making me feel so anxious and sad and hurt. I applaud you for making me laugh and smile and love. I beg you to NEVER STOP making me feel this way!
Love always, Kim (crazy, devoted fan for life)
