When a man has given up on himself—it sometimes takes a woman to show him how much he can have if he trusts in love.
Kristen Sawyer wanted nothing more than to forget everyone and everything after the death of her daughter. The last thing she every expected was to find the one man she'd never been able to have or forget—falling at her feet.
When Robert woke up and discovered that he'd passed out from his wounds at Kristen Sawyer's home, he knew he'd found the way to hold on—and to begin again. Now, all he had to do was eliminate the men trying to keep them apart, destroy the toxic drug in his system, and somehow make her want to trust in love.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence and non-consensual sex.

Is it a requirement to have a 10" disco stick to become a Navy SEAL? If so, I'm holding myself hostage somewhere so they can rescue me.
Robert "Tazz" McNeil is in big trouble. Presumed dead by most who knew him, he's since been part of the Sentinels, a secret government group working with a drug that creates harder, better, faster, stronger soldiers. But Robert is determined to destroy the drug and its formula so that it can't be replicated, which happens to make some powerful people a bit perturbed. Double crossed, shot and losing blood fast, Robert stumbles into the home of former friend Kristen Sawyer, the one woman he's always wanted but who he'd never touch. That changes fast as Kris nurses Robert back to health while they're snowed in together.
After losing her young daughter, Kristen won't allow herself to love enough to hurt again, but Robert will do whatever it takes to romance her and show her that they could be good together. Unfortunately, Robert has some seriously bad dudes after him and it's only a matter of time before they find him. Will the two of them ever have their chance for their HEA?
TRUSTING LOVE is the 4th book in the Love's Command Series, and while you can read it as a standalone, it's best read after book 3, Catch Me If You Can, since this book plays off of the same storyline and occurs immediately upon that book's ending.
This story felt very rushed through, making it riddled with mistakes, repetitive language and nonsensical paragraphs. The writing just didn't capture my attention whatsoever, as Robert and Kristen (whose last name magically changes from Sawyer to Reynolds…cool!) were both just so so characters who I would've preferred to hear about perhaps as a secondary storyline in someone else's story (maybe Dare and Kylie's). Which is a shame since Tazz was so intriguing in earlier books. The sex was erotic but once again there was just so much of it that it became total filler, and I began skimming the scenes instead of devouring them.
One thing I just can't get into with Ms. Jean's Love's Command books is that these characters all like to have sex at the most inappropriate times...like Robert and Kristen hooking up in like 10 feet of snow whilst being chased by the bad guys. Again, I'm all for suspending reality when reading erotic romance books, but...really? That's just plain loony. Take out the poor editing and totally gratuitous sex scenes and you're left with some decent action that should be the meat of this story but winds up as background noise to the sounds of the couple doing the no pants dance.
Bottom Line: Not too much I loved about TRUSTING LOVE, but if you're a fan of the series this will be a must read.
