BLOG TOUR: A Man to Trust by Cheryl Yeko

Thanks to Book Trailer Showcase for hosting this review tour. I thoroughly enjoyed it, so happy reading -- here's my review :-)



Angela’s survived an abusive marriage, but she tries to keep that to herself, making the lead detective in her husband’s death suspicious. Despite distrust on both sides, Angela and Jake find themselves undeniably attracted to each other, especially after being thrust together for her protection when she’s targeted by an unknown enemy. Can they learn to trust each other in time to stay alive?

Title:  A Man to Trust
Series:  N/A
Book #: N/A

Right off, the bottom line is I loved this story. The dynamics between everyone involved in the case, the family dynamics between Jake and his brother (and their kids), and the friendship dynamics between Angela and her best friend were so natural and multilayered. The case itself has depth and stays active throughout the plot.

The characters themselves were all very compelling. Other than the villain(s), there is no one that I did not like, in fact I generally only wanted more. Angela’s dark past with her late husband makes her so endearing. I cried for her as I read about the things she remembered and as she found goodness in her life. Jake is so noble and protective, it’s hard not to fall for him. I stayed completely invested in their outcome, but I was absolutely bound to Angela and wanted to scream at the injustice when things took a turn for worse.

I must confess that I only skimmed the villain’s POV sections, because I generally hate those, but they’re short and few and add to the complexity of the situation. The most important part of any story is its plausibility. This one is totally believable at every turn which is one of the things that keeps you riveted from the first page to the very last.

In Conclusion:

Overall, A Man to Trust is an emotional rollercoaster ride with a great balance of action, heat, and just plain tenderness. I doubt any romantic suspense fan will be disappointed!
