Cassandra's Reviews of Trust Me by Sophie Holloway ~ BLOG TOUR ~

I can't get enough.
Enough of her beautiful body, her passion, and the way I feel when she's in my arms.
Eva has become the most precious thing in my world and I'll do whatever it takes to protect her. Her enemies are ruthless, but so am I.
I am not a man to be toyed with, especially when it comes to this woman. My woman.
I will find her, protect her, and make damned sure she knows that she's all that matters.
No one can tear us apart, not as long as she trusts me.

Lessons in Seduction is a three part series that follows Jack and Eva’s romance. Overall, I gave this series 4 stars. This is one of those little sister falls for her older brother’s friend romances, which I always like. As with all of these types of stories, both Jack and Eva have felt an attraction to each other for years, but acting on that attraction seemed wrong to them. Eva is the innocent young woman looking to bring out her inner-vixen, while Jack is the experienced man who avoids commitment at all costs. In some ways, these characters came across as cliché, but this did not take away from my enjoyment of this series. Jack and Eva were fun characters, and I liked their story. There is some suspense and a mystery that keeps this story moving at a fast pace for the most part. The first two books, I had trouble putting down, but I did not feel quite as engaged by the third book, even though it was still well written.  I also felt frustrated with Eva’s lack of caution considering the danger she was in. Still, I recommend checking this series out.

Teach Me is book one in the Lessons in Seduction series and it set the stage for this story. This book started out with Jack showing his playboy ways, while proving he had a soft spot for Eva. When Jack met Eva for brunch, he was shocked when she asked him to teach her the ways of seduction, and he wasn’t sure he could agree at first, no matter how much he wanted to. There was a lot of chemistry between these two, and some hot encounters. I loved how Jack was unable to keep his mind off Eva after agreeing to her terms. There was not much in the way of suspense in this first installment until the very end when a cliffhanger set the stage for book 2 and the mystery to come. I gave this first installment 4 stars.

Take Me is book 2 in the Lessons in Seduction series, and, in my opinion, it is the best in the series. This book had just the right combination of steamy sex, sweet romance, and suspense to make me love it. I really enjoyed how Jack and Eva began to build on their relationship even more as both realized that they had much more than just great sex between them. In this book, they finally learned that Eva was in danger, which brought out Jack’s protective instincts and drove him closer to Eva. This book was definitely a 5 star read.

Trust Me is the third and final installment in the Lessons in Seduction series. I started off having an issue with this story because I felt Eve got out of her predicament at the end of book 2 too easily. This bothered me more when I learned more about Eva’s enemy later in the book. Still, this book brought Jack and Eva even closer together as they admitted their feelings. There were still many obstacles for them to deal with and some unexpected twists near the end. While I still felt this was a good story, it was slower than the other two books. Overall, this was a satisfying conclusion to this series and I gave it 4 stars.

I received copies of these books in exchange for honest reviews.
