Thursday Climax: Trust in Me by Bethany Lopez review

Trust in Me
Title: Trust in Me
Series: Friends & Lovers Trilogy, Book 3
Author: Bethany Lopez
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Description: Roni’s dreams of becoming a contemporary dancer were smashed under the brutal rage of her ex-husband's fists. Getting divorced and starting over at the age of twenty-two was never her plan, but maybe in Texas, she'll find her path. When the town's local player, Rich, opens a Rec Center, she sees a way to rekindle her dancing dreams...and maybe have a little fun with her sexy new boss.

Rich never expected to fulfill his dreams in the town he planned to leave behind, but that's just what he's doing. His reputation as a noncommittal ladies' man might make it challenging to earn respect in the business world, but he's willing to prove that he's serious. In fact, when it comes to pursuing Roni, he's more than willing. But she's taking a page out of his book, not wanting to risk another relationship. Can he convince her that his playboy days are over and that she can trust him with her heart?

Review: I will start by saying that I have not read the first two books in this series. I was approached by the author to see if I was interested in reviewing this book, and I honestly didn't even think to ask if I needed to read the first two books before reading this one. That said, you will be happy to know that you do not have to read them in order. It is entirely possible that you learn some information about the characters in the previous books in this one, but I think that it won't be enough to ruin any of them.

This is a very quick read seeing as I finished it in about three hours. It jumps right into the action and gives you something to think about throughout. The main female character, Roni, starts off the story by being beaten by her husband. She has called her twin brother to come rescue her and she escapes with minimal injuries. Her soon-to-be ex-husband is not so lucky, but once the main part of the story gets going, you will find that whatever happened to her husband is the last thing on your mind. Instead you will be going back and forth between what is going through Roni's mind/heart and what is going through Rich's. Rich is the main mail character who has been longing to be with Roni for quite some time. Of course he is shocked to learn about her history from his time in college yet he is still willing to be there for her. You will find yourself wanting to keep reading to discover where their relationship will go, how Roni manages to rebuild herself, and have a few exciting moments to enjoy as well. It was very entertaining.
