Raine Taylor has one goal – justice for her murdered sister. She knows Genie's husband strangled her and left her in an alley – Peter had been threatening to kill his wife for years. The police said there was no proof Peter Northrup killed Genie. So it was up to Raine to make him pay.
When Detective Connor Donovan answers a call about a trespasser outside Northrup's house, he finds a woman running down the street. When he tries to stop her, he's left holding her hoodie as she strikes out like a ninja then vanishes like smoke.
Connor quickly realizes Raine is his mysterious trespasser. Now he has to figure out why she was outside Northrup's house at three A.M. Raine isn't his usual criminal – she's a schoolteacher who coaches a tae-kwon-do team of under-privileged girls. And he's wildly attracted to her.
Raine needs to stay away from Connor. She has a plan to deal with Northrup, and she can't get involved with a cop. But like two magnets drawing together, she can't resist him. Can Connor help her find justice for Genie? Or will her sister's killer claim another victim before they can stop him?

Trust Me is a great addition to The Donovan Family series. This book focuses on police detective Connor Donovan and teacher Raine Taylor as they try to bring a murderer to justice. Romance, action, likable characters and great writing make this an excellent read. I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
My first impression of this story: WOW! The danger and suspense in this story (Book 4 in the Donovan series) literally blew me away, it was so constant and fast-paced. The romance between Connor, a Chicago Policeman, and Raine, a teacher and Tai Kwan Do instructor for troubled girls in bad neighborhoods, didn’t take a back seat in the suspenseful plot either, but kept pace with the intrigue. I’m not giving any spoilers here so I’ll just say if you like romantic suspense, you need to read this book! I’m going to read the rest of the Donovan series asap.
