Nadene's Satin Sheets Review of Trust Me by Anna Wells


BLURB:  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.

NADENE'S REVIEW:  When I first read the blurb for Trust Me I was very eager to read this title as it sounded like something I would enjoy.  Well I am glad I got the chance to do so as it met my expectations and more.  It had just the right mix of romance, mystery and suspense.  The love scenes were definitely off the charts, so hot and sizzling.  I love the fact that it was not just mindless sex but that there was an actual plot that readers can follow.

This was an exciting read which had my attention from the very first line. It flowed from beginning to end and had just the right pace. Not too slow and not too fast.

I loved how the characters were portrayed. My favourite was Donovan who is an alpha male but who is not afraid to show his gentle side. He and Alaina were quite good together. The attraction between these two was evident from their first encounter. The sparks literally flew. They both flirted shamelessly with each other. For Donovan the attraction for him was difficult as it could mean jeopardizing his job and months of undercover work, however he could not stay away.  I loved the interaction between these two and the way their relationship blossomed in spite of the odds.  At first I had questioned Donovan's motives in light of the fact that he was tasked with finding out if Alaina was also involved in the terrorist activities. After awhile it became clear that his feelings were quite genuine.

I liked how the story as it relates to terrorist activities was dealt with. It had me guessing as to whom the real mastermind was. Ms. Wells did not make it easy to figure out who the villain was as she kept adding new twists. 

This is a great debut story and is definitely a must read for persons who are looking for a sizzling, steamy and suspenseful romance.  Looking forward to more from this author.
