Trust in Me (Montgomery Brothers Book 2) by Samantha Chase

All work and no play…
…would make Jason Montgomery a very happy man. Ever since his brother had married a woman who worked for their company, Jason has been walking around fending off the unwanted advances of all of the single women in his employ. Now, with a make or break business expansion in the works, the last thing he needs is a hands-on assistant who wants to get her hands on him!

For three years Maggie Barrett has happily hid in the shadows of Montgomery’s. After dealing with her own unwanted advances from her previous employer, staying under the radar was working just fine for her. But now she’s thrown into the spotlight as Jason’s assistant because he believes her to be a safe choice because she’s married.

The only problem?

She’s not.
Working in close proximity wasn’t supposed to be an issue. The lines of their relationship were clearly defined. But when a mutual respect turns into a mutual attraction how will Maggie explain that the only thing holding Jason back was just a little white lie?

"Trust in Me" is book number two in Samantha Chase's The Montgomery Brothers series.  This one focuses on middle brother Jason and quest to keep his personal life and his professional life separate.  A task that is complicated simply because his younger brother Lucas (from book one's "Wait for Me") recently married his assistant.  Now it seems that all of the single ladies that come to work for Montgomery's are looking at Jason as potential husband material.

I loved the opening of this book where Jason is trying to describe his criteria for a new assistant.  We never see the other women chasing him but he summarizes it in this scene and it leaves you with a vivid enough picture of what the poor guy's been going through.

His father, the lovable matchmaker who did wonders for Lucas and Emma, offers Jason the solution in the form of the very capable Maggie.  The do not hit it off in the beginning but once they start spending some time together, the attraction that they feel for one another offers up some interesting situations.

There's great dialogue and even greater attraction between these two that builds as the story goes and all in all it made for a great read.  I loved the family interaction and for only .99 cents on Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Smashwords, you can't go wrong.

Looking forward to seeing where the third brother Mac is going to find his true love!
