‘Trusting Again’ is the fourth book in the Second Chance series by Peggy Bird. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.
Cynthia has been trying to forget the man that commissioned an expensive piece of jewelry from her. He is involved with someone else. Marius convinces her to go on a sailing trip just the two of them. Cynthia is shocked by not just what she finds in San Juan weeks later when Marius is off on a business trip. Do these two have what it takes to make it work?
Cynthia is an artist who works very hard. Her ex-boyfriend gave her such a hard time she is slow to get in a relationship again. She does not want to be hurt. Marius is a strong and sexy character. He know what he wants when he sees it. Cynthia is a puzzle to him because she keeps giving him an out when he does not want one.
The chemistry between Cynthia and Marius is off the charts. The sex scenes are hot and steamy. These two are very well matched in the bedroom. I loved that while they both want the same things Cynthia was more careful to jump in.
The only thing I would have changed was to make the story longer. These were two very realistic characters in a very realistic situation. Overall, I loved this story. While I have not read the other books in the series, I will be reading them shortly.
Imagine Cynthia Blaine’s surprise when she walks into the bar at the Heathman Hotel in Portland Oregon and sees the man she’s been trying to forget for weeks after he commissioned an expensive piece of her jewelry for “a friend’s birthday.” There was no point fantasizing about him. He was taken.
But over a cup of coffee, he convinces her to give this relationship a try. Marius woos her on a sailing trip through the San Juan Islands and their romance seems on solid grounds. But during his six-week business trip to Central America, Cynthia gets a shock. And when she goes to Portland to pour out her heart to her best friend, she has another shock - Marius, in Portland, not where he said he would be and with another woman.
It’ll take more than a good cup of coffee this time to get Cynthia and Marius to their happily-ever-after.
