Summary (from Goodreads):
Lexi White finds herself at a crossroads. After putting everything on hold to care for her ailing father, it’s finally time for her to start living her life again. An exciting new job holds the promise of a fresh start, until she comes face to face with someone from her past who has always stopped her dead in her tracks, and who evidently still has the power to make her forget her own name. This time around, Lexi’s a grown woman who refuses to back away from her dreams, even if it requires working with her old high school crush. Side by side. Every day. Will he end up being her downfall or exactly what she needs?
Vincent doesn’t even remember Lexi from high school, but he begins to take notice when the fiery young woman is hired as his new assistant. Quickly, Lexi turns his world upside down and becomes an invaluable addition not only to his team, but to his life. Having learned a few hard lessons about trust in the past, Vincent is reluctant to let down his guard, especially when it appears that someone is out to sabotage his family’s advertising agency. Professionally, they are dynamite together, but when sparks fly between them personally, will Vincent let lies and jealousy ruin everything between them, or will he finally learn not only how to love, but ultimately trust…in advertising?
Victoria Michaels once again delivers a can’t-put-it-down novel loaded with engaging characters, cheeky dialogue, and powerful emotions. Trust in Advertising is a cleverly woven tale about two people getting to know each other and ultimately themselves.
Okay, so I love reading chick lit. I love books with dreamy boys in it, you know, the rich-suave-hot-tempered-pretty-boys lol who doesn’t? WHO??? So, anyway, this book has a dreamy boy and his name is Vincent Giovanni Drake. Oh my, I want my own Vincent Drake. I remember having a big crush on someone when I was in High School and… oh let’s not dwell on that, I have moved on lol
So, I basically love the story. It’s sweet and cute. I like sweet and cute lol but it’s a little predictable. But I like that there was a lot that happened before they got together. I love reading about their ups and downs. And reading from both protagonists point of view is really reassuring for me, as a reader. At least I know what Vincent was thinking while Lexi was scribbling notes as his assistant. I love reading the man’s perspective cos you know, guys think differently from us girls. At least I know the reason why he’s smiling like an idiot in one scene or why he’s mad.
I admire Alexandra White, for being so selfless and loving and caring and… oh she’s too much! I have to say, as a girl, she’s someone I want to be. I admire her dropping out of college to care for her sick dad, at least she dropped out for a purpose, not only because she’s an ass or something. I admire her smart-mouth and witty responses to Vincent and I admire her courage. She’s strong for facing problems such as the death of both her parents and stopping her life for ten years and meeting her high school crush again but this time as her boss. Well, at least she got to meet him again. This was like a second chance given to her, to start over and be someone that she had wanted herself to be, ten years ago. This is really inspiring. The message of the book is like, never give up on something or someone that you want especially if that something or someone is meant to be for you or with you. Agree? Yes, you should lol
I love the whole Drake clan and how they welcome Lexi to their family. They are so supportive of her and Vincent. And i like how they hate Jade, Vincent’s supermodel girlfriend who only eats veggies lol she is such a bitch (sorry for the language, but you’ll also hate her if you have read the book) Ugh. This book has made me think that supermodels are spreading their legs to every business man/opportunity that comes to them, in real life. I know, I know, that’s wrong but I can’t help it. Seems like Jade and her friends in the book does that every time. Uhhh, what else? Ohhh I love Hope!! She’s such a cute best friend. I know they only knew each other for five or six months but the girl’s a badass lol that’s why she captured Sean’s heart. And I love Madison!! Such an adorable little girl, it’s so funny when she asked Lexi and Vincent to read Beauty and the Beast to her as a bedtime story and she made them dance and kiss. Such a cute chapter lol
Oh there is so much to say but I think I should stop. This is getting to long but I hope I helped you convince to read this work. I know the writing is not that good but it’s okay, you’ll love the story. This book made me cry and blush, I love it! Ciao!
