Review for Trusting Trey by Katie Mettner

Merry Christmas! Okay, too soon? Maybe, but not for the release of Katie Mettner's new Christmas book, Trusting Trey. If you've read her Sugar Series you'll know the couple in this book. Trey and Allison Helton are friends with Sugar, and Trey is Sugar's 'legman'. They share some good times and poignant moments throughout the Sugar Series, but Trusting Trey is all about them. You'll meet them in the present, then the past, and eventually, the future. 


Trey Helton moved to Duluth to work as a prosthetist for the local hospital. Leaving behind a personal tragedy, he knew Duluth would be the place he could make a life and start to heal.

Allison Drakos was a college senior ready to graduate from the University of Minnesota Duluth. Going to school and working part-time filled her days, but Allison still found time to enjoy her last year with her sorority sisters, until the unthinkable happened.


Christmas Eve is a special day for Trey and Allison Helton. Not only is it the day they fell in love with each other, but also the day, six years ago, that they married. Their Christmas Eve routine has stayed the same for the last twelve years, but this year will be different.


Will next Christmas Eve give Trey and Allison a new reason to celebrate a life full of possibilities?

This novel is part of the Sugar Series but I can testify that you can truly read this as a standalone novel because I have not had the pleasure of reading any of the other books in the Sugar Series. I can assure you however I will be reading more in this series in the future because the novels are so well written, as all of Katie’s books are, and the characters are so interesting. In this novel Allison Drakos is a college student in her hometown of Duluth. She is a senior studying to be a librarian because she loves all types of books. I immediately identified with her in that I love to read as well and could spend all day in a library or a book store and be perfectly happy. As long as there is an endless supply of coffee of course. Allison doesn’t really date in college because she feels that the college boys are not that much more mature than they were in high school so she sticks to her studies. One afternoon while she is visiting the library she works at to work on her book blog she meets a handsome new doctor in town named Trey Helton. They immediately hit it off as she recommends some books for him to check out and they go to dinner. After dinner they make plans to see each other again as soon as possible. Fate takes a turn for the worse as, after Trey drops Allison off at her dorm, she is abducted by a man in a mask and ultimately taken back to a frat house as part of their hazing ritual. She is not sexually assaulted but she is forced to undergo humiliating torture before they finally let her go. She is taken back to her dorm and thinks it is all over until she is hit by a car! Feeling like she is surely going to die she does the only thing she can think of and that is to call Trey. Although they have only been on one date she knows in her heart he is the only man she needs at the moment. Trey comes to her rescue but when they arrive at the hospital it is clear that Allison is very lucky to be alive and, with the injuries to her back, she may never walk again. Because Allison’s parents live in a house with more than one story it would be difficult for her to live with them after she is released from the hospital so she accepts Trey’s offer to live with him. The two grow closer and closer by living together and Trey helping Allison adjust to her new life. Will Allison learn to trust that Trey loves her no matter if she is in a wheelchair or not? Will she be able to accept that she is still worthy of love even if her life has taken a different turn than she expected? Will Trey be able to convince Allison that his love is true and he wants to spend the rest of his life with her? Will they ever really know what happened that night of the wreck? Find out in this heartwarming story of trust, finding faith and true love. I read this book in one sitting it was that good. I couldn’t put it down. I really believe in soul mates and destiny since I feel that my husband and I are soul mates but even if you don’t you will after reading this book. This story will make you believe in love at first sight and true love like no other. I give this book 5 stars! This is a must read.

Katie lives with her soulmate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and married in April. Together they share their lives with their three children and two leopard geckos. After suffering an especially bad spill on the bunny hill in 1989, Katie became an amputee in 2011, giving her the much needed time to pen her first novel, Sugar's Dance. With the release of Sugar's story, Katie discovered the unfilled need for disabled heroes and heroines! Her stories are about empowering people with special circumstances to find the one person who will love them because of their abilities, not their inabilities. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.
