Lawyer Alaina Simmons never imagined that she would be defending her deceased father against accusations of terrorism when she agreed to protect his legacy, a group of documents he’d placed in an archival repository. FBI Lawyer Donovan Prentice insists that her father and the organization he worked for were terrorists and that crucial evidence is in the documents Alaina has sworn to protect. Now she is forced to combat the FBI and her compelling attraction to Donovan Prentice while unaware that she is also Donovan’s suspect.
Special Agent Donovan Prentice is working undercover posing as a lawyer in an attempt to gain access to the evidence he needs to convict a group of terrorists as well as determine if Alaina Simmons is working with them. Things become complicated as Donovan becomes more intent on getting his suspect in bed than putting her in jail.
When the bullets start to fly and the lies begin to unravel Alaina and Donovan begin to explore their intensely sexual relationship, but the couple will have to learn to trust each other both in and out of bed before the terrorists’ game of intrigue can end.
Warning: This book contains steamy sex scenes and amusing banter.

Reviewed by Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite When Alaina Simmons promised her father she would look after some important documents from his activist organization known as OAS, she had no idea that she’d have to tango with the FBI to keep these documents save. Trust Me tells the story of Alaina’s desperate fight to prove her father was not a terrorist. Undercover FBI agent, Donovan Prentice, is posing as a lawyer to gain access to the documents. Donovan thinks there is evidence of terrorism hidden in those papers and it is up to him to convince Alaina to hand them over. Anna Wells makes it clear from their first early morning drugstore meeting that they’ll be doing battle in and out of the courtroom. The sparks fly immediately and after their first meeting you just know that all that simmering sexual tension has to boil over…eventually. Anna Wells’ story has all of the elements to make it great; fast paced witty banter, gunfire, sexual tension, and a mystery. Even though Donovan thinks Alaina may also be a suspect, he is unable to fight his attraction to her, nor hers to him, and the inner struggle adds needed depth to the story. Although I really liked Donovan, at times he came across as sleazy so I struggled with loving him and loathing him. And the sex? Well, that was as hot as I knew it would be and I love that Alaina tried to convince herself it was just sex when she found out he was lying. I mean, I understand lying to yourself, and it being his job is no excuse, but even Elise didn’t believe her and I found the interaction particularly hilarious. Trust Me is a funny erotic tale that touches on some important privacy and civil rights issues that are more than a little relevant in the United States today. Anna Wells has proven herself to be a solid story teller, capable of weaving love, sex, humor, and intrigue into one great tale.

I don't like to rehash the storylines during a review, so I'll skip all that. The overall plot was a good one, but the character development for Alaina and Donovan fell flat IMO. The first few chapters were entertaining, watching the dance between Alaina and Donovan. Even their first encounter at the DC hotel was pretty damn hot. After that it got a bit weird. What would you do if the person you got hot and heavy with across the country was sitting outside your house when you get home from said trip? No matter how hot the guy is, I'd be damned weirded out if he's sitting on my porch when I return home. What happened outside her house is the catalyst for her having to stay at a safe house, with Donovan as protection (cause who didn't see that coming?) Although it was kept legit by having a female agent also staying there, Alaina and Donovan still found ways to bump uglies (although the scenes were hot). So after the safe house, Alaina's back at home but then figures out while talking to her BFF that at one point Donovan wasn't sure if she was a suspect in her father's organization. Of course that prompts the breakup scene, although Donovan was all creepy by totally ignoring the fact Alaina wanted nothing more to do with him, since he lied to her (all part of the job, ma'am). One last traumatizing event occurs that has Alaina calling on Donovan for help and pretty much sets the stage for the resolution. Not a bad read overall, I'd like to see a story about Alaina's BFF Elise.

I received a copy from the author for my honest review, so here it is. This is a great story, it is a love story with a little suspense and intrigue in it. Alaina Simmons is a lawyer trying to keep FBI lawyer Donovan Prentice from getting her father Tom Simmons paperwork that he has left in her care. Alaina doesn't think her father is a terrorist but Donovan ha other evidence to prove it. On the day she is to meet FBI Prentice, she is running late for work and has a killer headache and she stops at the local drugstore for aspirin and literally runs into Mr Hottie and the attraction is instant. When the time comes for Agent Prentice's appointment he is 15 minutes late and turns out he is Mr Hottie from the drugstore. She tries to fight the subpoena and they go to court. Can Alaina learn to trust Donovan? Will Donovan trust her enough to tell her how he feels? There are a lot of twist and turns to this story and you will not be disappointed. I finished this in less than a day. This is a first for me by Anna Wells and I loved it. looking forward to reading more from her.

Truly suspenseful ... twists and turns to keep you guessing never knowing till the end who the bad one was. Amazingly written.. FBI Donovan Prentice is hot yet coy'd.. determined and passionate about his job.. then there's Alaina Simmons the lawyer.. sexy passionate and at times unable to see or know the secrets her family holds .. these two get together and kaboom. Truly a great read.

What could be worse than bumping into a drop dead gorgeous man while buying meds for a hangover and acting like a hormonal schoolgirl, when in reality, you are a poised attorney late for an important meeting? You guessed it-finding out that drop dead gorgeous man is the attorney you have a meeting with, he works for the FBI and he is investigating your late father’s possible involvement with terrorist activities. Trust me by Anna Wells is a fairly quick read with a perfect blend of character tension, attraction, flirtation and friction! When Alaina discovers her late father is suspected of subversive activities and Alaina holds the power to release important documents the FBI needs, Donovan Prentice is NOT a welcome adversary and the sparks are flying! When Alaina’s life is threatened, she must learn to trust Donovan, even after he has been less than honest and total evasive with her about his investigation. When he comes on to her with all his charm, can she trust he is being honest or is it a ploy to get on her good side? A touch of intrigue, some mystery and lots of great dialogue and romantic tension, all fill the pages of Anna Wells’ take on contemporary romance. Ms Wells writes with fluid grace, a quick wit and heats the romance to boiling with ease, leaving just enough inner conflict going on in her main characters to leave me smiling, knowing these two are right for each other! The pace is smooth, with just the right ups and downs in the emotional battle between love and law! I was provided a review copy as part of the Trust Me Virtual Tour.

Trust Me was a wonderful read! I had a hard time putting it down. Alaina was raised by her step-father and mother when she graduated college her real father showed only to die two years later. Alaina was a lawyer he left her in charge of some papers unfortunately that linked her and him to bombings, the FBI became involved. Donovan was the agent working the case. He had to find out if Alaina knew was an accomplice or innocent. Alaina and Donovan had instant attraction, sparks were flying. I immediately liked Donovan even though he was cocky, he was funny, protective, passionate,charming, sexy, attentive, helpful, caring, supportive, he was just an all around good guy. Alaina, bless her heart, had a heart of gold, but was so trusting she was almost naive really. This was a great read that I thought I had all figured out but once I got to end I wrong, took a twist I didn't see. I definitely recommend this book. I was given an ARC copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review, All opinions in this review are my own.

Trust Me is an exciting, fast paced story of mystery, suspense, and undeniable attraction. Alaina loves her job as a lawyer, but after her father dies she is faced with proving that her father was not involved with terrorists, and protecting his legacy. When she meets the FBI lawyer, Donovan Prentice, she is automatically attracted to him. He is tall, blue eyed, and just plain gorgeous. He sparks a longing inside of her that is primal and hard to deny. Donovan Prentice has to prove that Alaina is not involved in terrorist activities, like her father was. When he finally meets her in person he never thought that she would be so beautiful. From the moment she runs into him in the drugstore he found her tempting and incredibly alluring. Can he prove her innocence? Both Alaina and Donovan are fierce in their beliefs and convictions. Neither one of them want to back down from what they believe in, even if one of them is wrong. Alaina knew her father and there is no way he would willing be involved with terrorists. Donovan finds it harder each passing moment to resist his attraction to Alaina. Alaina and Donovan race to find out who is behind these terrorist activities and bring them to justice, without getting killed themselves. This story will have you turning the pages with your heartbeat quickening as our heroes get closer to the answers that they crave. An exhilarating read that will have you frustrated and aroused at the same time! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Anna Wells pens "Trust Me" in a well written, smooth flowing plot filled with romance and suspense. Between her strong characters that have great chemistry between them and the steamy sex scenes, I was captivated and found it hard to put the book down. A must read for all romance fans. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.  I did not receive any additional compensation for my opinion of the reading material provided. Two lawyers deeply attracted to each other, a father’s secret documents, and the rule of government versus one’s personal privacy are all key elements in Anna Well’s Trust Me.   Well developed characters, scintillating dialogue, and plenty of chemistry kept me turning the pages to discover what was going to happen next.  I enjoyed the mystery and found the timing of Ms. Well’s topic apropos. Young and attractive, Alaina Simmons is kept busy with her career as an attorney.  While her real life and legal cases aren’t as exciting as the attorney’s on TV, Alaina is satisfied with what she does.  It just doesn’t leave her much time for a personal life.  Meeting an attractive man by “accident” at the drugstore is a surprise, discovering he’s her morning appointment and is the opposing counsel on a personal case …….not so much. Donovan Prentiss knows everything there is to know about Alaina Simmons.  He just didn’t’ realize she would be more beautiful, and intriguing, in person.  Unable to resist the temptation, Donovan flirts with Alaina during a “chance” meeting.  He just didn’t count on her ability to resist his charms or her determination to keep the FBI away from her father’s personal documents. The scenes between Alaina and Donovan are full of lively dialogue and plenty of emotional and physical chemistry.  While deeply attracted to each other, they are both determined to prove they are right in their opposing beliefs and Donovan has the added pressure of needing to prove Alaina is not a traitor to the country.  Ms. Wells does a good job developing them both as individual characters and developing their romance.  Though I will admit that there were times I wanted to smack Donovan upside the head for all of his “lies” or “omissions” and I also occasionally wanted to hit Alaina for denying they had a real relationship. Will Alaina be able to prove her father is innocent of what the FBI is accusing him off?  Will Donovan’s career and his devotion to his job ruin what could be the love of his life?  You’ll have to read Trust Me to find out.  I enjoyed it and I think you will too.

I fell in love with the cover of this book the moment I saw it and once I read the burp, I was hooked and had to read it. Then I discovered that Trust me was Anna Wells first novel and I can honestly say, A JOB WELL DONE, Anna!!! Alaina Simmons is a lawyer who is defending her late father against accusations of committing act of terrorism and she is running late for her appointment to meet the FBI Lawyer in charge of the case. On top of that, she needs to stop by the store to pick up something for the raging headache. She becomes so pre-occupied with getting the meds and the fact that she is late, she runs right smack into the most gorgeous man she has ever seen. He, right down to her core, instantly affects Alaina and she allows herself a few minutes of flirting but then she is off and running once again. As she is getting ready for her meeting with the FBI, Alaina starts having regrets for not getting Mr. Drugstore’s phone number. She doesn’t have long to think about it, because her 9:00 o’clock appointment has arrived. Enter, Mr. Donovan Prentice, AKA Mr. Drugstore himself. The bantering between these two delicious characters was oh so entertaining. The sexual tension was through the roof. One minute they were debating the merits of the case and the next they were fighting to keep their hands off each other. What Alaina doesn’t know, is that the meeting in the drugstore that morning wasn’t an accident, because Donovan is really an undercover agent and Alaina is a suspect in the FBI investigation with her father. He has been following her for weeks. I adored our heroine, Alaina, she was a sexy, strong, confidante and smart women. I also enjoyed the fact that both Alaina and Donovan acted on their desire for each other, while knowledge that they were on opposite teams when it came to their legal case. They were able to separate the two. Personally, I feel the angst between Donovan and Alaina was at a minimum, which is refreshing to read. The pool scene between Donovan and Alaina was simple, SIZZLING!!!! However, what would happen once Alaina finds out who Donovan really is and what his real purpose was? Or what if Donovan discovers that Alaina isn’t as innocent as she appears. Was her father the criminal mastermind behind terroristic attack on US soil? And to top everything, someone is trying to kill Alaina. Just when you think, you have it figure out, Ms. Anna Wells pulls a fast one, and throws in another twist. As I have stated before, if you looking for a Smoking Hot, suspenseful romance, then TRUST ME by Anna Wells is the perfect book for you.
