I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I found this to be an easy read, not because it lacked substance but because I couldn’t put it down. I finished this book in a 24 hour period due to the fact there was never a dull moment that would give me a chance to put the story down other than to sleep.
As described by the summary on Amazon:
Lawyer Alaina Simmons never imagined that she would be defending her deceased father against accusations of terrorism when she agreed to protect his legacy, a group of documents he’d placed in an archival repository. FBI Lawyer Donovan Prentice insists that her father and the organization he worked for were terrorists and that crucial evidence is in the documents Alaina has sworn to protect. Now she is forced to combat the FBI and her compelling attraction to Donovan Prentice while unaware that she is also Donovan’s suspect.
Special Agent Donovan Prentice is working undercover posing as a lawyer in an attempt to gain access to the evidence he needs to convict a group of terrorists as well as determine if Alaina Simmons is working with them. Things become complicated as Donovan becomes more intent on getting his suspect in bed than putting her in jail.
When the bullets start to fly and the lies begin to unravel Alaina and Donovan begin to explore their intensely sexual relationship, but the couple will have to learn to trust each other both in and out of bed before the terrorists’ game of intrigue can end.
Now for my personal feelings on this book. If you are looking for romance and hot sex scenes then you will be satisfied with this book. I love romance and sex as well as the other readers, BUT I also want a plot, a serious story and I want the hot scenes to have meaning. I am not at all interested in a book just because it has page after page of sex with no substance. Trust Me, gave me a story plot that had me trying to solve the mystery regarding her father from the beginning. What I found most refreshing, I didn’t have the mystery solved chapters before the solution was revealed. I adore that in a book. When I can sit back and say “wow I didn’t see that coming” then to me it is a five heart book. Anna Wells has the talent of giving just enough hints to keep us guessing, yet not enough information to solve the mystery on our own.
The flow is easy to follow, you can tell the author did her research. Once again a sign of a five heart book when I don’t have to stop in the middle of the story to try to figure out what they wanted me to “see”. The characters are adorable, yet real. I laughed at the banter between the characters, I adored the “extras” in the story. They were important to the plot but didn’t over shadow the main characters. There wasn’t an abundance of unnecessary angst, what was troubling them was believable and both characters came across as strong-willed and not a victim of each other or of the circumstances they found themselves in.
I highly recommend this book and am very thankful that the author asked me to read and review. Once again I feel like I came out on the winning side of this arrangement. I will certainly be interested in reading more of Anna Wells books in the future.
