Raine Taylor has one goal – justice for her murdered sister. She knows Genie’s husband strangled her and left her in an alley – Peter had been threatening to kill his wife for years. The police said there was no proof Peter Northrup killed Genie. So it was up to Raine to make him pay.
When Detective Connor Donovan answers a call about a trespasser outside Northrup’s house, he finds a woman running down the street. When he tries to stop her, he’s left holding her hoodie as she strikes out like a ninja then vanishes like smoke.
Connor quickly realizes Raine is his mysterious trespasser. Now he has to figure out why she was outside Northrup’s house at three A.M. Raine isn’t his usual criminal – she’s a schoolteacher who coaches a tae-kwon-do team of under-privileged girls. And he’s wildly attracted to her.
Raine needs to stay away from Connor. She has a plan to deal with Northrup, and she can’t get involved with a cop. But like two magnets drawing together, she can’t resist him. Can Connor help her find justice for Genie? Or will her sister’s killer claim another victim before they can stop him?
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Raine is one of those people who’s strong and determined, but only because she has to be. She’d do anything to make things right and to protect those who needed it, even if it means putting herself in the line of fire.
Raine intrigues Conner; he wants to find out who she is and if all of his theories about her are correct. He’s a very determined man when he wants to be, and he doesn’t take no as an answer.
“Are you going to freak out if I kiss you?” he whispered.
His breath feathered over her skin, warm and fragrant with coffee and tiramisu, and she trembled. “Yes,” she breathed.
He cupped her face with his other hand. “Good. Because I’m already freaking out.” He leaned closer, and heat from his body licked at her skin like flames. “I want to kiss you, Raine.”
I loved the way the two characters were first introduced to each other. They just kind of “kicked” things off. Their chemistry was strong enough to keep me reading, but it’s the suspense that completely captured my attention.
Trust Me is a suspenseful story with the perfect blend of romance. The characters are entertaining, and with Raine you never know what will happen next.
“You’re making me crazy.”
She fumbled her hands to his waist, yanked his shirt out of his pants. “Only fair,” she managed to say. “Because when you touch me, I don’t remember my name.”
My Favorite Moment: Nothing like catching the woman you’re interested in, in a place she shouldn’t be. Sparks will fly! And trees will be abused!
