Book Review: Trust Me?

For a short time, you can purchase both Trust Me? and Love Me? for 99 cents each!

You know it's going to be one of those days when you get rear-ended on your way to work.  In the real world, whoever hit you is probably some high-horsed lady who was texting on her phone but still gets up in your face and demands that you were somehow to blame for the mess.  But for Jeni, the person who hits her car is someone just a little more apologetic...and good looking.  And yes, he's rich, too.

Trust Me? is a story about a couple's journey to be a stable part of one another's lives.  But it's not a novel for teens filled with a high school romance of hand-holding.  Young-uns, you should wait a few years before reading.  Or if you go ahead and read anyway, just make sure that you don't tell your mom that I am the one that brought this book to your attention!

One thing that really irritates me about most recent romance/erotic novels is that both the guy and the girl are made out of money.  Sure, it's a great fantasy, but really it just pisses me off.  Isn't it enough for the young, handsome man of everyone's dreams being loaded?  "I didn't have to work a day in my life if I really didn't want to, but I just love my job so much."  I'll tell you where you can stick it, lead female character!

That's why I find it refreshing that Jeni works in an auto repair job.  Sure, her friends own it, it's a stable job and she doesn't mind what she does.  But it's realistic.  And I need that with at least one character in a book.

Instead of going for shock value in the passages fit for only 18 and over, the romance illustrated is more a story of a couple falling head over heels for one another, longing to spend every moment with the other.  It reminded me a bit of when my relationship was new with my husband and how I would wait anxiously for him to drive down and visit me at school, just for a chance to snuggle up against him and turn my brain off.

I'm glad that I was able to discover KE Osborne's books before the end of the year.  I've got the sequel, Love Me? ready to read next!

I'm going to warn you - the end of the book had me pretty mad.  If you haven't read it, you're lucky that the second book is already available for you to dive right into after finishing this one.  You aren't going to want to leave it at the end of this one.  It's basically cruel!
