Blind Trust - book review
Blind Trust was written by Peiri Ann. This post was organized by N K Author Services. I was given a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
Loving someone has never been so deadly. Valerie Harper has one assignment, one mission. Assassinate her mark and everyone he loves. But what happens when she finds that she loves him too? Her instructions are simple; do not fraternize with your target, observe at a distance, and never engage with the enemy. However, as things take an unexpected turn in Val's world, these simple instructions begin to change.
Refusing to be a puppet, Kyle Shultz walks away from his old life and settles into the college routine. But the life of a student is more difficult than he imagined. Making friends and attending parties are as foreign a concept as showing a target mercy.
The lines between the state of the job and the affairs of the heart are blurred as Valerie and Kyle’s worlds collide. With a maze of enemies and hit lists to navigate, will these two young adversaries proceed wide-eyed and alone into the fray? Or will they blindly trust the feelings they can no longer ignore?
I struggle with the relationship between Kyle and Val... because how do you really have a relationship where trust isn't a given? Even if you get over the initial hurdle (more like a high pole jump of a hurdle) of that you're both assassins and have been assigned to kill each other (which you swear you're not going to do... but you're an assassin and you know the best assassins lie really well).. how do you ever fully believe. Wouldn't you always have a little niggle of non-trust? Wouldn't you always wonder if they were doing what they said they were, or weren't? I just think there would always be that little underlying doubt.
But it's love. And as readers you're in their heads.. and you just KNOW they need to stop questioning. You just KNOW they should jump in with both feet. You just KNOW that even with the little bit of doubt... Kyle and Val need each other. Or... as the reader... you hope the love will win out over the job.
While I did feel like I was constantly focusing on Kyle and Val... I really did enjoy the suspense of the story. What was really going on? Who was sending Kyle and Val their jobs? Forget about trusting each other... as an assassin could you ever trust anyone???? I couldn't stop reading because I just HAD TO KNOW where Kyle and Val would end up... and if it would be together.
