The Giving Trilogy by L.M. Carr • FMR REVIEW

                       Giving In to you 

(The Giving Trilogy #1) 
by L.M. Carr 


Second grade teacher, Mia Delaney, isn’t looking for love. In fact, she isn’t looking for anything at all because life hasn’t been fair. Everything—the idea of love, her hopes and dreams—was ripped away in a single night.
Arrogant yet sexy Adam Lawson makes the move to a small town in an attempt to escape life in the city. Here he hopes to provide a fresh start for those he loves and protects with a vow to never let anyone get close enough to hurt them again. 

A chance encounter with Miss Delaney begins a relentless pursuit that has Adam breaking his own rules when he makes an offer she simply can’t refuse. Despite her internal struggles, Mia knows there’s no denying the attraction between them. 
But when acquaintances become friends and friends become enemies, Adam’s need to protect those around him becomes even more crucial. Will the tangled web of lies and betrayal combined with past insecurities become too much for them to handle?


Review by: Erin 

Speechless. This book had left me speechless. These characters are very well developed and addictive. Adam with his brooding and his nice little compartments. Mia is still struggling with her past, but has a whole lot of love to give. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. There is a lot of drama to keep you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails and chewing your lip. The story takes several twists and turns, keeping you on your toes. I can safely say that I am invested in the outcome of this story and am off to read the next book so I can see what happens.

Review by: Flavia 

Okay first of all, I didn't know what to do with this story.

I liked the storyline of this book, it was filled with so much drama and angst and romance and really hot sex!

Adam is this Tall, Dark Handsome hard-working father, raising his two kids all by himself. But also seems like a deeply troubled man. When he meets Mia its like he has this struggle of going after what he wants but also about just leaving her alone

Mia has been through so much heart ache and drama that she is just fine on her own with her beloved Brady and her sweet little students.

But they couldn't deny the chemistry between them and the attraction. But there was so much more to this story.
Adam is clearly hiding something and with Mia's past relationships issue of doubt can she trust him wholeheartedly or will he break her heart.

Mia I just don't know if I liked her character. She annoyed me a bit. Once their relationship started, I felt like for someone who had trust issues she just made a lot of allowances for him. And she just accepted whatever he told her.

But when you eventually learn the Big Secret you will not believe it.

So like I said Drama/Sex/Suspense and so much angst you will not want to put it down. And that ending. Holy Smoke

I am excited to see where this is going... So on to the next Book!

Review by: Erin

This story left me heartbroken. Everything was going along great, then BAM! My god, I did not see that coming. By the end I hated Adam. Looking back, there were one or two clues that I missed that might have prepared me for the way this installment would end.  It was like a car wreck that you can't look away from. The story is chock full of drama, with a very addictive storyline. The more I read, the more I craved those scenes. I kept waiting for Mia to knock the shit out of Gina. The emotional level of this story is off the charts. I am off to read book 3 now. I can't wait to see how their story ends. I will be staying up all night to find out!

Giving All to You 

(The Giving Trilogy Book 3)

by L.M. Carr 


To save Mia Delaney, the absolute love of his life, Adam Lawson made the extremely difficult choice to leave, taking his two beautiful children with him.
Shattered and alone, Mia was left to mend her broken heart and deal with the consequences of loving Adam.
Now he’s back and unwilling to let anyone or anything deter him from what he wants most — to have Mia and his family together as they should be.
But just as Mia begins to trust him, a deep and painful secret is revealed. How can one night, one careless decision, change so much?
Will it be too much for them to endure? Will this revelation be the final blow to crush each of their dreams?


Review by: Erin 

Well, it was a long road and took a while, but Adam is finally back in my good graces. It happened at about 3am. It was worth every minute of lost sleep. These two characters have made their mark on my heart. Their story is so emotional it will take its toll on you. The story is so detailed and descriptive that you will feel as if you are in the same room with them. I felt every emotion as it happened. I cried, I laughed, I yelled a few times. The ending was even better than I had hoped for. A definite must read, especially if you are like me and like long series for the same characters.

L.M. Carr, author of The Giving Trilogy, is a wife, a mom, an educator, a reader and a writer who lives in central Connecticut with her family and two dogs. When she's not sitting at her computer writing, she loves to read or spend time with family and friends.

The idea for the trilogy formed in the summer of 2013 and wouldn't leave her alone, until she picked up a pen and jotted the thoughts down. Before long, words flowed as the story began to unravel.

L.M. Carr is a lover of "Happily Ever Afters" because the world is filled with enough sadness. Reading is an escape in which anything is possible. But like in reality, stories sometimes take you on a journey through Hell before you can reach Heaven.

Follow along as we begin this journey together.
