Trust in Me (Montgomery Borthers #2) by Samantha Chase

Trust in Me (Montgomery Brothers)


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 the second in the Montgomery brothers series. At first I wasn't sure about this book as it is another assistant falling for the brother story like the first one. Yes, it is different, but I just felt like I read an office romance already. Quickly I didn't care so much about that as I got to know the characters and really got into the story.

Jason is a workaholic. He is perfectly happy working long hours and not really having a life outside of work. Ever since his brother got engaged he has been having issues with his assistants. He keeps getting ladies that want to get married to a Montgomery brother too and he really just doesn't want to deal with that. When he needs an assistant to travel with him for a few weeks he insists on one that is married so it is not another lady just trying to get together with him. He has work to do, he doesn't have time to fend off the ladies.

Maggie had a traumatic experience at her last job when she worked as an assistant. Mr. Montgomery (Jason's father) saved her and gave her a job at his company. When Jason needs an assistant that is married, Mr. Montgomery asks Maggie to fill in. She is a great worker, she knows how to be an assistant, and everyone thinks she is married. Since the incident she has shut herself off from others not trusting them or letting anyone in. In order to not have to deal with guys or anything she pretends to be married. She has been just not doing much of anything for the past few years, but when Mr. Montgomery asks her to help out with Jason's project she feels like she has to. She is afraid to be around other people, but she is going to help out for Mr. Montgomery.

When Jason and Maggie start working together things are great. Maggie is professional and is a great assistant. Things are going great until they start falling for each other. Poor Jason. Here he is thinking that Maggie is married and he is having improper thoughts and wanting to do things he shouldn't with a married woman. It was cute and sweet and I loved the both. Sure there were moments when I wanted to yell at Maggie for not saying something, but in the end it all works out. Another great read.
