|Brian suspect that his boyfriend is cheating and decided to put an end to their relationship when he and his partner are called at the scene of a crime in Masontown. When he arrives at the scene, he is stunned when one of the victims bears an uncanny resemblance to his boyfriend, James. As the similarities keep piling up, so do the bodies... and the evidence pointing to James as the killer.
He may not be the best boyfriend in the world, but when James begs Brian to believe he's no murderer, Brian gives a leap of faith. In fact, whoever did pull the trigger undoubtedly wants to finish what they started, and Brian is the only one James trusts to keep him safe. But how much is Brian willing to risk to protect a man he may not even know?
The story captured me from the first page. I confess that one scene in the beginning of the story almost brought me to tears. The author manages to convey the various emotions with words alone.
The characters are interesting. Strong but even with its flaws and vices. Despite the apparent strength they have, they are also vulnerable and insecure. The tension caused by the investigation and the conflict faced by Brian to believe in James enough to put his career on the line is transmitted through pages and influence the sex scenes, making them explosive. The story itself is very good but part of the suspense left a little to be desired. Some details have not had a greater concern and have damaged this part of history. A careful reader discovers the culprit since the beginning of the book and have confirmation in the middle of the story. I also had a problem believing that Brian, a homicide detective, was not so credulous and suspicious of such a person.
Trust Me is the sequence of Cover Me but nevertheless can be read separately. I advise you read before Cover Me if you have not read to familiarize yourself with Andrew and Nick, that appear in this book and had their story told earlier.
