Detective Maxine Walker is on the run from the law for a murder she didn’t commit and needs to make a decision on her next move. She’s helping out a friend in her gift shop, hoping no one will figure out who she is, and who should walk in but Lucas, who knows her real identity and easily sees through her disguise. While she’s thinking about his offer to have a beer, some of the people looking for her come into the show, and the firefight starts.

Lucas McAllister is out to find who killed his partner and Maxine is at the top of his list of suspects. Now that he’s caught up with her, his doubts in her taking his partner’s life increases and he decides that he wants to help her clear her name instead. When he ends up on the run with Maxine from the villains looking for her, the sparks fly between them, and they both try to resist their attraction.

Trust Me is the first book in The Lassiter Group series and is action-packed from the beginning until the end. I was drawn in from the start and loved every moment of the banter between Lucas and Maxine, because they are perfect for each other. The villain really turned out to be more than one person, and it took me by surprise when I found out who it was.

Now as for Max, she is a cocky, independent pistol packing babe who depends on no one if she can avoid it, and I applaud her courage to finish whatever she started. She did spend a little too much time worrying about situations beyond her control, which didn’t help her in some decisions she made.

Lucas, working for the Lassiter Group after serving in the military, really needed to get a life away from work and the stress he was experiencing from it. Then Maxine came into his life and has him on a ride he never wanted to get off. He won me over with his protective tendencies toward her and that gave him big points in my opinion.

Ms. Somers has many books published but this is my first time reading one of them and I am fascinated by her in-depth detailed research into the police force. I will be adding this book to my list of rereads and encourage others to give this story a try.

This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.
