SYNOPSIS: The Silk Sisters -- longtime friends Janelle, Sandra and Vicki -- have turned their business savvy into a top-tier event agency. And in the wealthy enclave of Wintersage, Massachusetts, there's an abundance of lavish parties, society drama and longing hearts to keep them busy. Premier event planner Janelle Howerton swore off dating after college. Now her father wants her to make nice with an influential donor to his congressional campaign. After all, it's just one date…..

REVIEW: Southern born, Rosalyn Greer, and Irish-American born, Patrick Monahan, had fallen in lust five years before. She was not willing to commit and he was not willing to beg; even though lust had turned to true feelings. Fast forward five years later and they meet at a business meeting as client and Public Relationships Director. Patrick decides he had let her go once, but he would not let her go again.
TRUST FALL is the story of a young woman, who is unsure of her personal self, and the man who loves her. Rosalyn has a doting mother and ride or die friends. She is business savvy and she knows it. Her personal confidence, however, is nonexistent. To her - her hurt does not matter. Patrick grew up in a loving family with parents and grandparents. He is somewhat spoiled and used to getting what he wants. This time he wants Roz. Insecurity is a heck of a thing to have to fight though. It is an uphill battle but he is determined.

TRUST FALL takes place mostly in New York City, Manhattan in fact. Ms Frierson brings the busy borough, the busy seasons, and Roz’s busy life into sharp contrast with the peace that Patrick brings to her (if Roz would only pay attention). She also takes the reader on a trip to beautiful Ireland to visit Patrick’s grandparents.

Rosalyn’s best friend, Lois, friend and business partner, Hoa along with Patrick's good friend and business partner, Mohinder, have their own hilarious stories to tell without overshadowing the main characters. A strange set of circumstances brings additional people along with drama into Rosalyn’s life. She comes face to face with the main reason for her trust and low self-esteem issues.

In
TRUST FALL, Frierson does a great job of portraying a woman who comes into her own because of the love of a good man. There is not a lot of sex for sex sake and the book moves at a decent pace. I found myself rooting for Rosalyn and Patrick all the way. It is a real love conquers all romance.
