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.
Warning: This book contains steamy sex scenes and amusing banter.
She took a deep breath before saying, “Donovan. I’m just going to face the elephant in the room. When we met this morning I obviously had no idea who you were and if I had I wouldn’t have spoken to you the way that I did. Okay?”
Donovan was a little surprised but managed to hold back a laugh. “And what way was that?” His voice held that same sensual tone that it had in the drugstore.
Okay, so wow, his voice really turned her on. She felt slightly embarrassed, but what the hell he had flirted too. “Well, I was a bit flirtatious.”
He raised a brow and grinned. “A bit?”
“Cut me some slack, you were just as bad. Admit it.” Could that knowing grin of his get any bigger? She wasn’t sure why, but he was charming the hell out of her.
“As an officer of the court, I’m taking the fifth,” he said jokingly before adding, “I think this is a conversation we should pursue further once we’ve completed our business.” He paused a brief moment and looked at her intently. “And I would like to pursue it.”
The low timber of his voice caused her skin to tingle, and she felt her face flush in reaction. The idea certainly had merits she thought as she studied the hard plains of his face. God he was hot and he was making her hotter. She exhaled trying to calm herself before saying, “Do you think we can do that? Wouldn’t it be a conflict?”
He gave her a slight smile and there seemed to be a sparkle in those blue eyes as he said, “Yeah I think we can do that, but we have business to settle first.”
She nodded in agreement, hoping the meeting went smoothly and they could get back to the more interesting conversation. Wasn’t that a professional thought?
4.5 Star Review ~*~
Trust Me by Anna Wells was a fun story to read and held just enough of all the right story elements to make me keep reading and I had trouble putting it down.
Donovan and Alaina are meeting under unusual circumstances that just might blow up in their faces later. I loved the tension between both characters due to chemistry as well as circumstances. There was a lot going on as they face off on different sides of an issues, only to come together to save Alaina's life in the end.
This is the first book I've read by Anna Wells, but it will not be the last. She creates scenarios and characters that are realistic and make you feel like you are right in the thick of things with them. Trust Me will draw you in and when you finish will spit you out wanting more.
