Brooke Anderson never pictured herself as a divorcee at twenty-eight. But when she mentions getting a post-nup to her husband Garrett after one deliciously sex-filled year, he promptly serves her with divorce papers. Admittedly, she could’ve told him about how her father left her and her mother homeless when she was young, and how she’s never been wired to trust anyone. Especially those closest to her. Now, all she wants to do is avoid anywhere he might be so she won’t have to face him again.
But she’s not the only one who can’t seem to trust.
Garrett Call grew up with parents who married for money and wants no part of a life that puts material possessions above love. He reinvented himself in college, complete with a new last name so he couldn’t be tied to his family’s lucrative business. He never even told Brooke the truth. Admittedly, he could’ve handled the issue of a post-nup better with his ex-wife. Maybe he didn’t count on how much he was going to miss having her in his life.
When their best friends’ wedding forces the exes to see each other again, a dangerous man from Garrett’s world threatens Brooke’s life. And they realize the only way to save themselves is to finally learn to trust each other.
⭐⭐⭐ / 5
Trust me is a story about the breakup of a marriage due to lack of communication and serious trust issues. Both Brooke and Garrett have their own reasons for their individual attitudes towards money, however neither of them feel comfortable sharing those reasons with their partner. This sadly leads to two people who are still very much in love with each other getting a very fast divorce.
I personally thought the storyline of this book moved rather quick, from their initial argument resulting in the finalisation of a divorce within 10 days, something that seemed incredibly hasty. The storyline however quickly focuses on the upcoming wedding of their friends. Brooke and Garrets trust issues are put to the test when danger circles around them, and they have to make the ultimate decision, trust each other or face the looming danger alone.
This story was an enjoyable read, full of heat and suspense. There was so much happening throughout this book, It could easily have been a bigger book, which in turn may have allowed the story to expand further. With an interesting storyline and likeable characters, this is certainly a book for those who love a sexy quick read!.
