Trusting Ryan

Tara Taylor Quinn is a hit or miss author for me. I’ve read some that were amazing and others that were so-so, and a few that I thought that the books were written by a different author. So, I took reading Trusting Ryan with trepidation.

Here’s the blurb:

A dedicated cop in the Special Victims Bureau, Ryan Mercedes has a trusted friend in lawyer-advocate Audrey Lincoln. Her compassion is the perfect counterpoint to his hard-driving fight for justice. And this good relationship only gets better the night they cross the line from friends to lovers.

But they're up against seemingly insurmountable obstacles that could divide them for good. Worse— now she and Ryan are on opposite sides of a controversial case. Can they trust enough to resolve their differences and find their way back to each other?

Let me make myself clear on something: I have no problem with age differences between women and men. In this case the heroine was older then the hero. My problem was the “maturity” of the hero. Mind you, he is very mature for his age, but it’s not believable. And that’s one of my complaints about the story, and the other is the heroine’s mother…what a manipulating witch, she needed to be kicked to the curb, but that’s just my opinion.

Otherwise it was an enjoyable read. I spent an afternoon with the book, and didn’t want to throw it against the wall…well, that’s something.
