Set in the equine world in Queensland, Australia, Rihanna Mason is a vet, and along with her father, is specialising in the research of this fatal and predominantly equine-based virus that has crossed species and killed two vets (four have died to date, I asked Uncle Google!). Unfortunately for them, the Syndicate is semi-successful in attempts to kidnap the vets for their virology work.
Brayden James is part of a select group of exceptional talents who work for a clandestine Government agency, and he’s been tasked with protecting Rhianna. What he wasn’t expecting was the instant connection between them. He’s gorgeous, alpha and occasionally moonlights as a guitarist and vocalist for his friends’ band, Steel, and it is in this capacity that Rhianna first sees him and experiences the most intense attraction that she has ever felt for a man.
He and the rest of his team are all perfectly trained and super athletic people, and along with Jazz, Rhianna’s best friend, round out the story as a great group of secondary characters. Brayden and his team, however, share an extreme secret, one that Brayden wants to share with the woman that he has now fallen in love with, but it could endanger and possibly expose all of them. At the same time as protecting the vets, they also need to expose the bio-terrorist syndicate, and use the vets knowledge of the virus to prevent a potential outbreak, or method of containment.
Finding Trust is the first in The Centre Games series, and is a hot and sexy action romance with an HEA. I also really enjoy books where scenes are set on my side of the world and appreciate reading the colloquial language that I am use to! I am definitely going for the next in the series!
The story involves a strong willed young woman who is a veterinarian and has been working on a researching a cure for a virus, she meets a guy she thinks is a rock star but turns out to also be a spy with a very unusual secret who has been assigned to protect her from a group of extremists that want to get their hands on the virus for nefarious reasons.
It did take me awhile to get into this story but I stuck with it and I very glad I did. Despite taking time to hook me, once it did the story moved a fast pace and I loved where the story took me. I also found myself wondering about other characters in the story and now I am looking forward to reading more so I delve more into the other characters and see what else is in store for our couple from this book.
I would give this book 4 stars, only because it took a while for me to get into the story and there were times I had to stop to look up some of the words since they are different from what I am used to. I hope I am able to learn more.
The characters this particular story followed were Rihanna and Brayden. This was a a great read as the characters issues, apart from the enhancement, were issues everyone can relate to. Being hurt, trust and opening up to someone new.
I absolutely loved Rihanna, she was not overly girly, in need of rescuing, she was a woman caught up in an unknown issue. She was willing to be involved in solving the issues she was facing. She was strong and capable, and intelligent.
Brayden is a genetically enhanced human, rockstar, bodyguard type sent to protect Rihanna because of something she's working on. He was absolutely endearing and OMG loveable. Brayden was not backwards about being forward or about discussing his feelings for Rihanna. Loved that a macho man showed his tender side.
I can't wait to read book 2
