In BETRAYED, the second installment of the Trust series, Sophia, Ethan and Alistair will face and revisit their past dark deeds.
Each one of them will need to overcome their guilt, fear and pain and learn to see themselves through forgiving eyes.
Or succumb to their misery.
Alistair Connor MacCraig, a powerful banker, and Ethan Ashford, a steel tycoon, are both in love with Sophia Leibowitz, the ravishing owner of Leibowitz Oil.
Sophia fells for Alistair's seduction. She is determined to have a relationship with him but a dark and terrible secret lurks beneath the surface she presents to the world. When she regains her memories, shame and fear will take control of her. Will she be able to find peace within herself?
Alistair is in love with Sophia but he has difficulties overcoming his guilty over his daughter's death and his sexual preferences. Certain that he doesn't deserve to be loved, he would do everything to push Sophia away, despite his love for her. Will he be able to find redemption?
Ethan, no less haunted by his secrets and lies, lives in an alternate reality because the loss of Sophia is too unbearable to face. He would do everything to have Sophia back in his arms.

I enjoyed this book but it wasn´t fabulous. Like the first book I had some problems at times. I have had a hard time pin point exactly what it was, but after talking to my sister about it, it finally came to me. There are to many details and t he reading pace is slow at times. Even though I had some problems at times with this book I did like it. It has a lot of dilemmas that the characters has to deal with. They are all deeply troubled by their pasts, even more so in this book, or at least it is more evident in this book than in the first.

The characters are really complex and deep in different ways and they are all heavily burden with secrets. I like both Sophia and Alistair but I just can't find in my heart to like Ethan, even though we get to know him a lot better in this book. His past has without doubt helped form him in to the person he is but... nope I just can't feel any sympathy for him. 

This book is worth reading, I really do think so. It is well written and the author has done her research. She definitely got something here but I would have like a little more action and less details. But if you like a lot of details and soul searching then this is going to be the perfect book for you!
