Publisher's Summary

In this prequel to In Pursuit of Justice, Michael Lassiter, a theoretical design executive, is about to wage war on the corporate battlefield as she fights to maintain control of her company in the midst of divorce. She hires JT Sloan, an Internet security consultant, to protect her most important asset - her dreams and visions, which are suddenly vulnerable within the corporate computer system. Sloan, a brilliant cybersleuth who steadfastly avoids emotional commitments, shares a painful, secret past with her associate and friend, Jason McBride. Sarah Martin, a gentle practitioner of eastern medicine, searches for a way to heal a damaged soul.
These four very different individuals, each wounded by personal betrayal, find their lives becoming ever more inextricably bound as they struggle to trust, and to love, again.

Prequel to Justice series is excellent!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, It's an excellent book to read after Shield of Justice. But before the other Justice books Shield first introduces you to Rebecca Frye and Catherine And Watts and Sandy. Now A Matter of Trust introduces you to Sloan and Michael and Jason/Jasmine and Sarah. Then the next Justice book puts them altogether for one explosive novel but I am getting ahead of ahead of myself. A matter of Trust. Is a stand alone story of how J..T. Sloan computer whiz and Michael (a woman) a business genius get together and fall in love to the background of saving her company from a nasty virus and take over attempt from Michael estranged jerk of a husband that she is trying to divorce. The slow love story set again the fast pasted fight to keep her company is awesome and very heart warming but on top of that you have the love story of Jason/Jasmine and Sarah who is a wonderful love story as well and makes you want to know more about the couple even though this is primary a lesbian story their story is so funny an interesting it makes you want more about them. So yes I highly recommend this book to all my friends even a few of my straight friends.

What other book might you compare A Matter of Trust to and why?

I can't think of many off hand. Maybe a Third Story by Carole Taylor and that isn't even close. Or the more a Different Story but again that isn't right either. And I am mostly thinking about Jason, Anyway as the Love story between Michael and Sloan a lot of Radclyffe books are like it, Also a lot of Geri Hill stories like Highway to Hell or Coyote Sky Or Hunters Way, Stories were the two people just sort of fall in love while working on a joint project. But you could see the sparks fly between them from Hello, Radclyffe's Safe Harbor or when Dreams Tremble are both good examples but that isn't exactly right either, Just shut up read the book, you will love it. Sorry I can't think of a good example.

Which character – as performed by Betsy Zajko – was your favorite?

I loved the way she voiced Sloan and Michael. But her Jason / Jasmine was also awesome and made the story awful fun to listen too. She did a wonderful job with all the different voices it's hard to choose just one. .

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

God yes But I just don't have that kind of time so I had to just listen to it at night and in the morning. Boy was it a great story to wake up to and to go to bed listening to at night. It relaxed me while giving me a big happy smile at the same time. (Get your mind out of the gutter I said smile and I just meant a happy place) I truly enjoyed this story more than most of my books on Audible

Any additional comments?

Just give it a chace The computer parts are interesting on there own, the love stories are fantastic and the story is well written. The fact that it's a Radclyffe story is a plus, that it's a prequel to the Justice series is also a plus. And should be read after Shield and before the other Justice books. (Sorry I can't remember which one comes next, I think it's Shadow but I could be wrong, )

absolutely wonderful! !

Betsy Zajko was and is a spectacular narrator. She truly brought the story home. She makes you feel like your right in the room with the characters! I brought this book when it was first published. However, Betsy made me feel like I was reading (hearing ) for the first time. She truly brings the story to life. I will definitely follow her as a narrator for future books!

still waiting for it to get vaguely engaging

Any additional comments?

I stuck it for an hour and a half. Then I relented and eventually gave up at 3 hours 4mins and 14 secs with 4 hours or so to go. The story had not moved on AT ALL. That 3 hours plus was filled with character introductions - for 3 characters with a few other place holders and narrative movers thrown in. So roughly an hour for each main character - we should know them very well. Not so. All we get is vague generalized comments repeated in a slightly different way with no back history or insight. This is one I am returning.

never disappoint

Would you consider the audio edition of A Matter of Trust to be better than the print version?

never read the print version

What other book might you compare A Matter of Trust to, and why?

It comes close to the Honor series but this is only the first book in the series so who knows if it will get better or not. Both series has similar circumstances than bring each women together and in the end the same results

What about Betsy Zajko’s performance did you like?

I really liked her voice and her emotions between the two women. Great performance!!!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was smiling a lot so although there were times when I really felt it for JT fighting her demons and straining to stay away from a woman knows nothing about being with another woman.

Any additional comments?

i really do love Radclyffe's books, i find all of them to be quite ravishing an exciting.
