Review: Trust with a Chaser by Annabeth Albert (Rainbow Cove #1)


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review.

Annabeth Albert's got a brand spanking new series called Rainbow Cove set in the eponymous fictional small town in the state of Oregon. She kicks things off with a May-December romance between the nearly forty-year-old chief of police and a twenty-eight-year-old aspiring restaurateur in Trust with a Chaser. Being in law enforcement is all Nash Flint knows, having followed in his late father's footsteps. In a town as small as Rainbow Cove, Nash knows which families he needs to keep an eye on and at the top of that list is the Hanks clan. There isn't any love lost between the Flints and Hanks either, one looking at the other with distaste, distrust, and most probably, even disgust. With the return of Mason Hanks, he recognizes how much trouble he was going to be...just not the kind of trouble that the rest of his family has been known for. Nope, what's got Nash wanting to both get a little closer and stay away is the fact that he's more drawn to Mason than he's ever been with any other man. But nothing can come from his attraction, not with Mason being openly gay and Nash desperate to keep his sexuality firmly secret.

While both Nash and Mason may have taken note of one another when Nash shows up at the local tavern that Mason and his two closest friends have bought and now co-own, what with it being a decade since Mason left for college, theirs turned out to be more of a slow burn romance, something that I think worked out well for their story. The animosity between Nash and Mason's father and siblings adds to the complications that this particular couple is forced to deal with as the book progresses. With more than a decade between them, family members  on both sides who make it clear that they do not approve of the two men even being around one another, and Nash being in the closet? It may look like a disaster in the making, but there's something about Nash and Mason that had me eagerly anticipating when they both put their respective guards down and take a chance on GETTING together and then working their way, step by tenuous step, to BEING together. These two have to battle through A LOT but they so made the journey to their happy ending worth it all. Trust with a Chaser is a five-star series starter! ♥
