WARNING THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT RAPE!! Once I realized I had bought a book about a rape victim I re turned it to Amazon. Rape has no business in Romance novels. There is nothing romantic about rape!!
I don’t know where these authors get the names of their books but sometimes they just don’t make sense. Marcus and Eleanor fell in love eight years before then suddenly she disappeared, leaving him with only a note of goodbye. Then she returns with her 7 year old daughter, from when she had been raped eight years ago. Marcus, with his inner thoughts, tells himself how much he hates her, how he wanted revenge, one minute he’s being a jerk to her and the next he’s telling her how much he wants her, how he has to have her in his bed before she leaves London again, how he can never trust her again, and so on. So, my question is: why is this book called To Trust a Rogue? It had nothing to do with trusting him and everything to do with trusting her. Just curious.
Overall, this was a decent book but it was very repetitive. I mean, I can see an author wanting to say same thing more than once but why it has to be said the same exact way three or four times is beyond me.
And if you’re looking for a strong female lead you need to look elsewhere. When the rapist went to Eleanor and told her to leave, or else, she packed up Marcia and left London AGAIN. I think it would have been better for her to have gone to Marcus and told him This is what he said, what should we do about him? In eight years she never got even a little bit braver until her daughter Marcia told her she was tired of her mother be afraid of everything.
The best thing about this book was when she met Marcus in her aunt’s garden and told him the reason why she’d left eight years before, instead of that information being dragged out until the end of the book. And it was nice how really, really bad he felt for hating her all those years, only to find out that what he thought was wrong, wrong, wrong. And it was really nice what Marcus did to the rapist.
Another thing that was soooo wrong was when, on three occasions, someone said something about “ending” someone. Really? How 21st century is that stupid phrase.
There was sex in this book but if you don’t want to read it just forget the epilogue, because that’s all there is to that.
As to the narration: Tim Campbell is one of my favorite narrators, whether he’s reading a paranormal, a contemporary or an historical. All the men’s voices are different, the women are good and he reads with great emotions.
