Alice Cramer is tired of being pitied for her family’s transgressions, so she resolves to break out of the gutter and into the spotlight. As long as her local congressman can forget about their checkered past and help her secure a federal grant to open Harmony Falls Little Theatre, she’ll be the brightest star in town. But when Alice stands up in church and stops the congressman’s wedding, she dives headfirst into fresh scandal.
Why is Harmony Fall’s golden boy, Justin Mitchell, speeding down the interstate sans a new wife but with the local drama queen he’s been trying his whole life to avoid? Alice Cramer may have saved him the hassle of an arranged marriage to a woman he didn’t love, but she’s also put a business transaction big enough to save an entire town in jeopardy - not to mention his reputation.
Soon Alice and Justin are dredging up and indulging in an attraction that threatens all their dreams and aspirations. But what if life together is the dream that matters most?

Anna’s Review

It took me a while to like the Alice and Justin characters and maybe it was the fault of the plot itself.  I had trouble accepting the idea of an arranged marriage in the 21st century and I found the idea of Alice being from a “bad” family a little tired.  It just wasn’t working for me.  So I really struggled with the first part of this book.

However, Justin’s transformation pulled me in and saved the story.  He comes to realize after Alice crashes his Wedding that his life has been going in the wrong direction and quickly starts making changes.   I was still frustrated with Alice’s character, I felt she really never believed she was “good enough” and was too bogged down in what the town thought of her.  Despite these flaws, Justin and Alice romance was charming and I was glad to see to them both realize that life is so much simpler when you let yourself be happy.

If you’re looking for a sweet romance about the one who got away, check out Crashing the Congressman’s Wedding.

Sizzling Excerpt from Trust Me

Donovan leaned forward and placed one hand on the doorjamb.  He was so close she could feel his breath as he spoke, his voice low and husky, “Alaina I want to see you again when we're back in San Diego, and I think you want to see me.  Am I right?”
Alaina wanted to sound cool and aloof when she answered him, but it was impossible to pull off when he was standing so close. 
Instead her voice sounded breathless, “Look Donovan, maybe under normal circumstances I’d consider it, but I don't think it would be a good idea for us to see each other again.” There she had said it, now he would turn around and leave.
Donovan didn't turn around.  He leaned closer, slowly, giving her plenty of time to stop him from touching her.   She didn't move a muscle, making no attempt to prevent the kiss she knew was going to happen.  When his lips first touched hers they were gentle, but gradually both of them became more aggressive and their kiss intensified as their tongues dueled, their bodies pressed closer.  He put his hands in her hair, pulling her head back with a gentle tug, probing deeper, more intensely with his tongue. Alaina felt herself losing control; she felt the moisture building between her legs, completely forgetting their surroundings.  She was aware of nothing but Donovan.  One hand began to move slowly up her waist towards her breasts while his other hand pressed her more closely against him.  Her nipples hardened at the touch of his hand through the soft fabric of her blouse.  She moaned against his mouth, feeling the unmistakable heat of his erection pressed against her heated mound. Her body clenched in response as he rubbed against her.  Instead of being shocked, she pressed herself even closer to him. Suddenly Donovan pulled himself away from her, breathing heavily staring at her with intense eyes.  Alaina was confused at his abrupt ending of their embrace until she realized that they were both breathing heavily and that they were still standing in the hall. 
“Open the door Alaina we need to go inside.”
She hesitated unsure that this was a move she wanted to make.
“Now,” he said.  His voice was hard and uncompromising.
She fumbled in her purse for her key card.  Once she found it she somehow managed to put the key in the slot and open the door.
He firmly guided her into the room and over to the Queen size bed.  Before she knew what was happening she was in his arms again.  She felt like he was some bad addiction and that she couldn’t get enough of him.  Their tongues were dueling and she was desperately trying to get close to him.  She wanted to feel that hard cock rub against her again.  He must have been slowly unbuttoning her blouse because she suddenly became aware of it sliding off her shoulders. 
He admired the black lacey bra before pulling the straps down and unhooking the back.  Her breasts were freed and she stood before him topless feeling exhilarated by his gaze. 
“Beautiful,” he said as his mouth found her nipple.  He swirled his tongue tasting her, savoring her soft skin, “Should I try the other one to see if it’s just as sweet as this one?” He asked before moving his mouth to the other nipple. 
God it felt so good, she thought. She felt like she might come just from his sucking on her nipples alone.  His hands kneaded and massaged her breasts while he continued to suck.  Then his hands reached down to her slacks and unzipped them.  He tugged them down her legs and she stepped out of them. He gently pushed her down onto the bed until she was lying down.  She was nude except for her panties.  He leaned down, placing his hand between the juncture of her thigh rubbing her slit through the tiny bit of black silk.
“You’re so wet for me.  All that anger and you’re still creaming for me.”
He reached under the silk panty and found her clit and rubbed gently. She moaned unable to contain herself as she felt waves of pleasure flow through her body.  “Does that feel good?”
“God yes,” she managed to answer.  She wanted him like she had never wanted anyone.  She really needed to feel him insider her.
He slid one finger inside her hot pussy stroking in and out. “Oh yeah that feels good too.  You’re so tight and slick.”  He added another finger moving in and out slowly.  His other hand moved to her swollen nub rubbing, circling, teasing.
She thrust her hips forward.  God she needed more.
He chuckled softly at her eagerness. “Do you want to come sweetheart?’
“Yes!  I need to come.”
He continued to rub with his thumb while she thrust her hips against his fingers.  She felt her pussy clench around his fingers and her clit begin to throb as the orgasm hit her.  She could hear herself panting, but she was totally focused on Donovan.  His eyes had never left her face as he had watched her come.  The intimacy took her breath away.
