Trust Me (Paris Nights Book 3) by Laura Florand 4 Stars!!
She’s nobody’s damsel in distress…
Top Parisian pastry chef Lina Farah is used to fighting for her success. But when a violent attack shatters her security, she needs a new tactic to battle her dragons. What better way to banish the monsters under her bed than by inviting a sexy SEAL to tangle the sheets?
He’s a professional dragon slayer…
Elite operative Jake Adams has never stayed in one place long enough to form a lasting relationship. Lina’s fire and beauty tempt him to give her the hot affair she craves. But her spirit and courage make him long for more. Can he convince a woman seeking forgetfulness to dream of ever after…with him?
Our heroine Lina is recovering from a terrorist attack which she foiled in the kitchen of her restaurant where she is an acclaimed pastry chef.
Our hero is an American on a black ops team working with the French to prevent such things from happening.
He fell in love with Lina when he witnessed her bravery and her deep caring for her friends oh and she is hot and fierce as well.
The wonderfulness of this book is all the little details like a flower opening that I don’t want to ruin. It is a quiet book that charts the coming to turns with a new reality, two career driven people falling and love, and emotionial healing.
There are moving and complex exploration of war, politics impact of each life, racism, sexism, gender relation all with a deft and gentle hand.
Lina just wants Jake for sex at first and he rightly resents it and I adore that start but I also adore how Lina knows mistakes can be corrected and we all can begin again.
A really lovely read!
PS Jake and his freckles are hella hot
I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it!
