Characters: Dennie Banks, Alec Prentice
Challenge: 100+, Whisper Stories

Dennie Banks is an investigative reporter chasing down the biggest story of her career. Alec Prentice is a government agent working undercover to catch an elusive grifter. When they meet by accident, it’s a case of mistaken identities at first sight. What they don’t mistake is the instant attraction they have for each other, an attraction they’ll do everything in their power to resist—because Dennie thinks that Alec is running interference for her interview subject, and Alec suspects that Dennie is linked to his swindler. As the confusion grows, so do their feelings for each other, and what begins as a romantic comedy of errors may just end in the love affair of a lifetime.
Trust Me on This is a short, funny read. Dennie and Alec are both using each other for the purpose of their jobs. Dennie, a reporter, needs him for an interview and Alec, an investigator, needs her to catch a con man.

This one was pretty fast-paced. The secondary characters provided a nice comedic outlet. They were all likeable, but there wasn’t enough to form any kind of relationship with them. Of those secondary characters, I did however enjoy Alec’s aunt Victoria.

Trust Me on This is a nice light-hearted read for a day of lounging around.
