Trust in Me by Skye Warren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Overall rating: 3.6
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. After reading Keep Me Safe, I was a little leary of this one.
It took me a while to get into this book, it seemed repetitious, Tyler was constantly apologizing and Mia was constantly getting beat just for the sake of being beat with no real cause or definition. Yes, I know the situation she was in. Yes I know this is Dark Erotica, it's pretty much all I read these days.I love dark erotica, but I also need the story to flow with some meaning.
Carlos saved Mia from the street, took her in, fed her, clothed her, made her his main "whore". But then he'd just go off and start beating her, or one of the other men would. And some of the beatings, it really didn't seem plausible that Mia could survive as long as she did after all that she went through. But I have to admit, during those scenes, I actually had to try and catch my breath. If Mia couldn't breathe, neither could I.
The book did pick up and hold my interest. Other characters were brought in that helped the story along, and made it an enjoyable ride to the finish.
The one thing that I felt was left unfinished was, what happened to, and with, Trunk?
This one was good enough that I will read Hear Me. Hopefully the trend will continue and I'll enjoy it even more than the last.
The price of the book, currently $3.99 USD, for 142 pages (Kindle edition), I felt was a little high seeing how Hear Me is $2.99 for 161 pages and Keep Me safe is currently $.99 for 95 pages.
