While out of town, Eric and Rebecca meet in a bar and find themselves seared by their one night of being together. Afterward back home, they both regret that they kept their conversation general and never knew each other’s name.

Rebecca buries herself in work to forget that one night long ago and she focuses on her family and friends to try not to think about him. The only pressing problem is she now has a stalker, who is determined to drive her to an emotional breakdown. She is forced to call the police when the stalker leaves a nasty present for her and Eric is brought in to work on the case.

Eric Stiles works for the police department in a special unit, dealing with serial killers, and his brother Charlie calls him to keep an eye on a good friend. This friend turns out to be Rebecca Gailen and both of them are shocked to see one another again. When he realizes that she might be his brother’s girlfriend, Eric does his best to stay away from her, to keep from hurting Charlie.

Talk about a suspenseful thrilling book! Serenity Lost is just that and more! I truly enjoyed reading the first book in the Trust Me series, especially since I am left hanging in regards to whom the villain is and why they are so obsessed with Rebecca. There were times when I was cringing at the state in which the victims are left and cheering Rebecca on for her courage in not breaking down from the evil that stalked her.

There are a few times, during the story, when you think the police have gotten one person for the murders and then you find out they are pawns being used by the true villain. Ms. Romine really did a great job at storytelling, and she had me entranced until the end. Lo and behold, I am left hanging until the next book comes out! Read and enjoy!
