A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romance from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn.
Brains and a badass attitude. That’s all troublemaker Leah Camacho took with her when she left Catfish Creek. She’d promised herself she’d never go back, but when the invite to her tenth high school reunion arrived along with the chance to show everyone who doubted her what a success she’s made of herself, she couldn’t resist. However, when she discovers a 15-carat, stolen diamond in her rental car’s glove box, there’s only one man she can turn to for help—the same sexy, stubborn domineering man who’d smashed her heart all those years ago.
Sheriff Drew Jackson knew a long time ago that Leah Camacho was nothing but trouble and has sworn to never get caught up in her again—no matter how damn sexy she is or how badly he’d failed to forget her. But, when the woman who test drove his heart right into a concrete wall rolls into Catfish Creek with some serious bad guys on her tail, it’s up to him to keep her safe—even if that means guarding her hot bod 24/7 without giving into temptation or losing his mind.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review
This is a first time read for me with this author so I was excited to see her spin on this humorous second chance romance. Trouble is the second book in a series written by compilation of authors about a group of bad boys and girls that come back to their small home town in Texas for their high school reunion. Sexy times, some angst, and a whole lot of hilarity ensues as they all traverse down the road to relive their glory days of high school. The series should be read in order, but I have started with Trouble, I do not feel like I was missing any information but I want to go back and read the first book just to make sure.
The story is centered around trouble maker Leah Camacho who seems to bring trouble along where ever she goes, and her summer fling turned sheriff Drew Jackson. These two could not be more different from water and fire, but man do they create magic when they are together and for some reason they can not get enough of each other. When Leah returns to their small town in Texas for the High School reunion for once she brings trouble that she was not planning on. Between the paid muscle and FBI breathing down her neck, the last thing she needs is Drew weaseling his way back into her life. Drew and Leah are thrown together in a hilarious comedy or errors to ends up being the answer to both of their prayers.
Flynn turns the enemies to lovers trope on its head with this one. Leah and Drew say they hate each other, but they really love each other. Even we know that is what is going on but they are too busy trying to cover their feelings with witty banter and snarky comments that they are unable to see what is even in front of them. Although this is obviously a love story, Flynn gives us a humorous and at times action packed story full of character and heart that is like nothing we have read recently. Leah has a sass to her like none other, but its all to cover her soft and gentle side that apparently no one but Drew is able to uncover. Drew is the by the book boy who does what is best for everyone else but himself, however Leah is always there to make sure he is looking out for what is best for him and call him out on his crap. Flynn creates these lovable characters that jump of the pages right into our hearts. We are along for the ride with these two and I for one would not have it any other way
This is a quick humorous read that is great for the sitting by the pool or on the beach! I would definitely recommend that you add this to you summer TBR list.
Until next time,
