The Act of Trusting by Lexi Bissen is now live!
There was a sadness in her clear, gray eyes that I could see she tried to hide. A fight with her inner demons she didn’t want to show anyone…
Life was going well for me. I was on the right track: captain of the soccer team, grades were passing, and I had the respect of my team. Girls threw themselves at me. It was every twenty-year-old’s dream.
Then I saw her…
One look at her, and it all changed. Something about her drew me in. A sense of protectiveness to guard this small, sad girl. In her eyes, I could see the fight she had within herself…and I wanted to be there for her. To protect her and be someone to lean on while she fought whatever it was. Nothing else seemed to matter but the dark-haired, beautiful girl I couldn’t stay away from.
I wasn’t the same girl I was four years ago. My life was stolen from me one night and I’d never have the chance to get old me back. Now I was just existing, not living. I went through the motions of my everyday routine, staying quiet and keeping to myself. Trusting and letting people in was a constant struggle.
Until he showed up…
I’d never seen someone like him before. Not once had I described a guy as beautiful, but that’s what he was. He struck something in me, and I didn’t know how to handle that. I was chasing nightmares no one knew about. Ones I kept to myself for a reason. Could I let this new person into my life that I had kept closed off from many for far too long? What if I let my guard down and he ended up destroying me?
And that became my greatest fear…
Blaire has a difficult past which has her preferring to stand on the sidelines rather than being the center of attention. College is her way of distancing herself from all she has endured but she never expected to draw the attention of Camden, an athlete who could have any woman he wanted.
Camden is not your typical athlete, and he is exactly what Blaire needs in her life as he is patient and understanding as she learns to trust not only him but herself as well. This is the start of a new series, and I am looking to more stories set in this locale.

When Lexi isn’t writing, you can find her binging the latest Netflix show, laughing at her own jokes, or sipping iced coffee while spending way too much money at the bookstore.
