Trust Me by Margaret Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
**** 4.5 Cranky Stars ****
Although this is book four in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone.
This story centers on Connor Donovan and similar to the rest of his family, he’s involved in law enforcement.A detective, Connor usually doesn’t take the type of phone call about people trespassing. It’s below his jurisdiction, but that fateful call is going to change his life.
Arriving at the scene, he encounters a woman running and when he engages her, all he’s left with is an item of clothing and a bruised chest from the kick she delivers before vanishing. Not one to be deterred, Connor is determined to uncover the mysterious woman.
Raine Taylor is a martial arts sensei, training underprivileged girls. Her goal, however, is to find the evidence to prove her brother-in-law murdered her sister. This may take her to the edge and over legal channels. The last thing she wants is to get involved with a cop.
If you like romantic suspense, this was a great story with twists and turns along the way. The tension between the two leads was palpable.
Raine is a force to be reckoned with and sometimes, I found her trying. She’s still likable and heroic though.
Connor’s relationship with his family was fantastic. They support each other and they’re the type of family we all want.
I can’t wait to read more from this author and am about to pick up earlier works in the series. I’m a big fan now of the Donovan family.
With thanks to Shy vs. The Writer.
