Trust In Me Bethany Lopez (Friends & Lovers #3)-- February 28th, 2013
Roni’s dreams of becoming a contemporary dancer were smashed under the brutal rage of her ex-husband's fists. Getting divorced and starting over at the age of twenty-two was never her plan, but maybe in Texas, she'll find her path. When the town's local player, Rich, opens a Rec Center, she sees a way to rekindle her dancing dreams...and maybe have a little fun with her sexy new boss.
Rich never expected to fulfill his dreams in the town he planned to leave behind, but that's just what he's doing. His reputation as a noncommittal ladies' man might make it challenging to earn respect in the business world, but he's willing to prove that he's serious. In fact, when it comes to pursuing Roni, he's more than willing. But she's taking a page out of his book, not wanting to risk another relationship. Can he convince her that his playboy days are over and that she can trust him with her heart? Goodreads

WITH HER SECRET BACKGROUND AND STREET SMARTS, LUCIA GARZA HAD FEW QUALMS ABOUT TAKING THE DEVIL'S DEAL...
money Lucia and her new partner received to open their detective agency
had come with strings: any assignment delivered via red envelope had to
be top priority. No sweat. No one could make Lucia do something she
didn't believe in--right?
Wrong. Lucia soon learned that every
choice she made meant life or death for innocent people. No one could be
trusted, not even the ex-cop she'd hired--and fallen for. In fact, Ben
might be her fatal weakness, if the powers warring to control the future
used him to control Lucia....
****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
The strings that came with accepting the start up money for
a private investigative firm with Jazz are starting to tighten around the two
of them. The women don't know who they can trust, people are attacking them
from everywhere and now Ben has been released from jail. Devil's Due starts
where Devil's Bargain ended, the women are trying to figure out what is going
on with the agency. This book is from Lucia’s point of view, Ben has been
released from jail and Lucia does not trust him, but she wants him. Lucia is a
strong silent woman, she is supposed to be a bad ass with all these secrets but
she just came across as cold and emotionless. Jazz was again impetuous and wanted
to rush head long into every situation. This book was fast paced, had a lot of
mystery and new love interest for one of the women. You get to see most of the
characters from the first book in this one and a few new ones were added. I
didn't really like it; I had a hard time connecting to the characters. The
story was an interesting concept mixing science and statistics with psychic
visions. There are probably people who will like this book, I just did not.
