BOOK REVIEW- A MATTER OF TRUST BY JILL BLAKE
Venture capitalist Vlad Snezhinsky excels at two things: making money and being a dad. Still struggling to get over a disastrous marriage, he has zero interest in starting a new relationship. That is, until he meets Klara Lazarev.
Klara doesn’t have time for romance. She’s too busy forging her own path in life: scrambling to finish her senior thesis, applying to grad school, writing innovative software in her spare time. Besides, she’s been burned before. She refuses to let it happen again—especially with a man who seems to have trouble remembering their first disastrous encounter.
But when a shocking murder throws their world—and their hearts—into chaos, discovering the truth becomes more than a matter of trust… AMAZON 3.5 STARS
I liked the story but it just didn't draw me in as much as I would have liked. I'm having a hard time putting my finger on exactly what was missing for me. Maybe it was, the spark between Vlad and Klara, I just wasn't feeling it all that strongly. Yes, when they had sex, that was easy to see how they related but at other times not so much. Her sister Anna caused more of a reaction in me. I wanted to smack her in the head for being so overbearing. Vlad's hopefully soon to be ex-wife got in her shots with her demands too. It's good story, with a few surprises. It's just that I was hoping for more depth I think.
I received an Advance Review Copy of this book and now I am giving my honest opinion of it.
