#BlogTour! #Review – Trust Me by Gemma Metcalfe (@gemmakmetcalfe) @NeverlandBT @HQDigitalUK



One phone call. Two lives. Their darkest secrets.

Lana needs to sell a holiday, fast. Stuck in Tenerife, in a dead end job, she never expected a response quite like Liam’s. Thousands of miles away a phone rings. Liam never intended to pick up, he’s too busy choosing the quickest way to die. But at least someone should know the truth before he goes, even if that someone is a stranger.
As time runs out both are drawn to the other, expressing thoughts they never thought they would share.

What does TWG think?

I am STILL trying to get my head around this storyline itself, and the fact that it is also the authors debut novel! For a debut, I was rather surprised to see that ‘Trust Me’ had the type of storyline that will leave its mark, as well as making itself known in your mind for a very long time. It certainly was a memorable read!

Lana is in a job with no future (in her eyes), yet she still has to do her job and sell holidays. In the process of doing so, Lana reaches out to a stranger (Liam) whose mind is on everything BUT a holiday. Basically, Liam wants to kill himself and Lana is the only person that can either talk him out of it, or be the one to listen to his final thoughts…

Can you see why I am STILL trying to get my head around this novel? Not in a bad way btw! The storyline is quite complex and severely intense that my mind had to work a little bit harder to keep up with everything that was going on. ‘Trust Me’ brings to light a topic that is unfortunately more ‘popular’ than a lot of us realise; suicide. Hats off to the author for writing about such a tangled, emotional and misunderstood topic, whilst keeping the subject as realistic as possible. In my opinion, it takes a lot of guts and determination to pinpoint a bold subject and run with it, especially in your very first book. I must admit that I was impressed by the way Metcalfe approached the overall concept.

There were, unfortunately, some parts of the novel that I found tricky to gel with and dissect, but because of the strong premise overall, it didn’t bother me too much.

‘Trust Me’ is definitely the novel that will require your full attention, and nothing BUT your full attention. It will know that you’re not focused, trust me! The twisty, rollercoaster ride of a storyline will take you on a journey that you have never embarked on before. A journey which will leave you speechless, catching flies and unable to remove yourself from its tangled web of intensity. Trust me, you’re going to remember this one..

  1. I have this to read. Was intrigued as I worked in a call centre years ago & had to deal with some distressing calls way out of my job role of giving out telephone numbers. Fab review x


  2. I have retweeted promotional posts for this book many times, so I though I should actually read one of the reviews it has attracted.

    It is definitely heading for my own list now, thanks to the honest and even-handed way you discussed your thoughts after reading.

    A good review to have as part of a blog tour, that’s for sure 🙂
