Trust Me By K E Osborn
Not at all what I expected
I started this book not sure what to expect. What I got was whole lot of things all wrapped up in a nice neat little package. So you start off with the sweet little romance that romance readers all swoon over, then it gets HOT with steamy love scenes that are not over the top, and well written. I was more than half way through the book with the thought that this was a nice easy read for the romantic at heart who liked their romance a little dirty. However then all changed as the book progressed and there was turmoil and intrigue and heart ache and loss. Enough so that the romance reader in me is not very happy, while the Suspense part of me is going “oh god what happens next”. I loved that K E Osborn was able to weave so much into a quick and easy read. There are to many novels that attempt this and the turns feel forced because there is not enough time spent on building a connection with the characters. That is not the case with this book, Osborn built great foundations for her characters and their building romance. Weaving in current relationships with past troubles all making the transition from standard romance to something far more complex easy. On a personal note – I am not much of a cliff hanger type of girl, I feel that more often then not they leave off in places that just drive me crazy. While knowing that this was going to leave off in some form of cliff hanger, I have to admit that it was a very well chosen spot, that did not give me an anxiety attack.
