Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:

A hero for the rest of us?

Escaping the cheating fiancé and sheltered life her father has arranged for her, Claire Albritton wants nothing more than to take control of her life and learn to fight her own battles.

Kevin Fuller believes he must rescue damsels in distress and Claire is decidedly out of her element in small town South Carolina. When trouble inevitably finds Claire, Kevin's white knight protection and heroics are exactly what Claire doesn't want. But his kisses...that's another matter.

Darkfallen's thoughts:

Trust in Me was a sweet and quick read that I couldn't put down...

Claire as grown up in a life of privilege and wealth. That doesn't mean that she always gets what she wants. Coming from a place where women are all expected to act a certain way, marry a certain man, and have babies, Claire realises that's not the life she wants for herself. Especially after she finds out her dad set up her engagement to her fiance all for a business deal, and the fiance is cheating on her. Deciding enough is enough Claire decides it's time to make some decisions for herself and takes off to the small town of Grayson where she meets Kevin.

This story was cute and sweet. You drawn into their world and unable to stop until you reach the last page. I love the strength you see in Claire and the determination and fortitude you see with Kevin. Together the two of them are unstoppable. This is definitely one of those stories that will pull at your heart strings on more than on occasion. Especially the story behind Kevin. I just wanted to hug him to death because he so deserves it.

The only thing that I wish we would have had more of was the actual romance between these two. Don't get me wrong, the chemistry and sexual tension is there. It's just that they only ever go on one real date before they are practically completely in love and ready for forever. I just felt that was a tad unbelievable and the story would have felt more real had we had a little more. Which yes, would have led to a longer book, but with a couple like these two who wouldn't want more pages? lol

Overall this was a great romance. It was heart wrenching, sweet, and swoon worthy with just the right amount of drama.
