Sometimes when perfect falls apart, a little trouble fixes everything . . . 

Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father's protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she's forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla's seen his type before. But Daren isn't who he seems to be . . .

Struggling to make amends for his family's mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He's beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner's princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she's just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla's dad could have left them . . . was each other.

I fell madly in love with Pixie and Levi (and Chelsea Fine’s writing) in Best Kind of Broken, so when I saw book 2 in this amazing series on Netgalley? I was so excited to read it!  (Yet, somehow? I’d forgotten the feels from Pixie and Levi, and dragged my feet when it came to reading this book.)

Then yesterday? My sister left. I won’t see her for a full year, which sucks because she’s my best friend. My house was a mess from 3 weeks of hanging out with my sister and neglecting it.And I was suffering from book hangover. I needed something GREAT to read. Something I could sip on a glass of wine and get lost in. And I remembered I had Perfect Kind of Trouble sitting on my Kindle.

I picked the book up at 8pm (bedtime for my kiddo) and I didn’t put it down until I finished, somewhere around 1am. I was lost in this fantastic world that Chelsea Fine has created. From page one, I was hooked and knew I’d found exactly what I needed.

We met Daren and Kayla in the first book (and how I love the way these two books intertwine!! The timing is phenomenal!) and I was intrigued, but to see just how they work? Starting with Kayla’s dad’s funeral (and the handcuff proposal – which you just have to read about!) and working it’s way through their love story? This book had me from paragraph one and I couldn’t wait to watch it unfold.

Some books are good. Some books are great. And some books? They’re magical. Perfect Kind of Trouble is one of those magical books. I feel absolutely guilty for having left it on my Kindle for so long – but I think it was waiting for the right moment to grab me.
