A sweet, light read. Perfect for a breather between two longer more complex books. Trust in Me is book two in the Montgomery Brothers series.

Jason Montgomery is having difficulties keeping his secretaries. Ever since his brother Lucas and his wife Emma got together, every woman thinks they will be the next Mrs. Montgomery (because Emma used to work for them, too). Jason has a very important expansion plan to complete and he doesn't have time for fending off unwanted advances. His solution: find a secretary who is married but can travel easily. This is a difficult requirement to fill, but William Montgomery (Jason, Lucas, and Mac's father) has it all under control. Of course, Jason never considered that he would be the one lusting after his unavailable assistant. Maggie Barret tries to stay under radar, and has been doing a good job of it for three years now. A traumatic experience with her previous employer has driven Maggie to be quiet and hide away from the world. Imagine her surprise when the very man who saved her, William Montgomery, calls her into his office. She isn't in trouble or at least not in a way she did anything wrong. No, Mr. Montgomery wants her to be Jason's assistant for his three week trip and help with his expansion. Maggie is against the idea from the start and would rather stay in her low-level, stress free job, but William needs her help. Maggie is fully qualified and although not actually married, everyone (but William) believes her married (a little extra security). Despite her fear of being put in a situation like her past, Maggie knows she owes it to William to do whatever he needs, so she accepts the position under duress. Maggie never dreamed that she would actually want the advances of her boss, not after what happened to her. Initially, Jason and Maggie clash, but once on the road and immersed in their work, they seem to click perfectly. Their relationship becomes even more comfortable after spending time talking and sharing the sights of their various locations. The chemistry between them becomes overwhelming, and crossing the line from business to personal becomes more than tempting. Jason hates that he feels this way towards a married woman. He would never be the cause of a failed marriage and feels terrible guilt at his wicked thoughts and need for Maggie. Maggie never expected Jason to be the kind of guy she would want, but he is. The problem, he doesn't seem to want to get close, and she is supposedly married. Their comfortable business trip becomes tense and uncomfortable. It's not until they arrive home after three weeks that things come to a head. A whirlwind of actions take place when Maggie's past is revealed and the fact that she is in fact single. Can Jason change a lifelong habit of putting work first to give Maggie the time a woman deserves, and will Maggie be able to set aside her past to trust Jason and their future? Only time and work will tell, but when Maggie's past waltzes in to the Montgomery offices, it may just be too much for the new couple to handle.

Jason was great. Thoughtful, intelligent, handsome, and with morals. He wasn't without his minor flaws, but did his best to get past them to achieve his goals and claim what he wanted. Maggie was sweet. It was terrifying reading what happened to her and I cant imagine having to live through that. She learned to be confident in herself and live life the way it deserves, though. William Montgomery was his usual meddling self, but sweet. It's endearing that he wants so much for his boys. I think I will definitely read book three, eventually. They are very short, and PG-13. I wouldn't mind a bit of sizzle instead of the intimate scenes immediately fading to black. Still, great brain breather. <3
