Trust Me Not by Ankita Verma Datta is a very engaging political thriller revolving around Corporate star Reeva Rai who works in a PR Agency and meets billionaire Kunaal Kabi and both gets attracted to each other.

Trust Me Not is a very engaging and an interesting political thriller which is having elements of drama, romance, suspense, politics, corruption and thrill. The story is very interesting written in a simple and a crisp manner with a lucid narration. I loved author's writing style. There are quite a lot of point of views in the story but I liked it. Initially, the story moves a bit slow, but then it picks up pace which is is full of suspense and I was not able to keep it down. All the events in the story are written in a detailed manner and can be visualised very well. It is full of many twists and turns as if it is a roller coaster ride, full of surprises. 

The characterisation is very well developed and strong. There are quite a lot of characters and they all have their own dark secrets and each character holds some importance in the story. I really loved the characters of Reeva and Kunaal. I really liked how the author has used the issue of politics and corruption which is the basic truth that is taking place in today's world. The length of the chapters were quite long but very intriguing and the book kept me at the edge of my seat. The way the emotions are penned down in the book is marvellous. The author has justified the title very well. It is a page turner.

Overall, I really loved the story and enjoyed reading it a lot. It is filled with so many interesting elements such as of drama, revenge, friendship, love, love triangle and suspense. I am awaiting more to read by the author. I would highly recommend this book to all the thriller lovers.
