“Trust In Me” is the sequel to “Keep Me Safe”, and if you are into dubious consent, explicit brutality and sex, then this read is quite interesting. Mia is the conflicted heroine in this story, and even though she considers herself a ‘whore’, she has a conscious that will not allow other victims to be treated like she has been treated. Mia uses her womanly ways to keep others like her safe from her domineering sadistic owner.
Is Tyler the hero or the villain? Years ago Tyler left Mia to fend for herself, in a way in which no girl should have to, now he is back and willing to protect her; but can Mia trust him.
If I had to sum this book up, I would say that it was heartbreaking, painful, an emotional rollercoaster, and in the mist of that it had elements of romance and humor. Mia is a tortured soul, but throughout the story, they author has you rooting for Mia to take back her life.
The author plays with metaphors and imagery in a prominent way to express Mia’s abuse at the hands the men in her life. This story was literally hard to put down.
As a side note, I would read “Keep Me Safe”, because this is when Mia is first introduced briefly.
Can love be found between a whore and a knight in tarnished armor?
Mia longs for the daily torture to end, but one last task keeps her holding on. In a betrayal of the crime lord who pulled her from the gutter, she’ll free the shipment of human cargo, and if she’s lucky, die in the process. The alternative is unfathomable, even to a woman well-versed in erotic torture. But luck abandons her yet again when she meets the security expert in charge of the shipment and finds herself face to face with her childhood crush. The man she once begged for help. The man who failed her.
Tyler Martinez is an undercover FBI agent with one chance to right the wrongs of his past. Thrust deep into the seedy world of human trafficking, he must put aside his guilt over abandoning Mia all those years ago in order to save her now.
Someone’s pulling the strings in this sadistic play on trust, but Tyler and Mia may not live long enough to see the curtain fall. Trust in Me is a story of erotic pain and incipient romance, spiraling ever faster toward betrayal or redemption.
