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.
Kayla Turner is back in Copper Springs for her estranged dad’s funeral. This is where she meets handsome, cocky and Porsche driving Daren Ackwood.
Kayla sees and remembers Daren as a spoiled brat who is nothing but good looks and no brains, and Daren sees Kayla as a heartless trustfund baby, who didn’t care about her father’s terminal disease until the actual will-reading. But looks can be deceiving.
Especially when at said will-reading, Kayla’s father left them nothing but the option to handcuff themselves to each other in order to find a letter – whatever that letter may say…
I really loved Book #1 from the Finding Fate series (Best Kind of Broken), so I was really looking forward to reading Perfect Kind of Trouble. And as wary as I am with sequels to stories I really love, there was actually no need to be – because Perfect Kind of Trouble was indeed prefect and even better than Book #1.
The story starts off with a rather unusual plot that has Kayla and Daren embark into a rather hilarious scavenger hunt. Given that they don’t regard each other highly was not going to be an easy tasks, but sure worth the chase in the end.
As expected (I mean, of course it was expected, but that didn’t make me enjoy the story any less), they both start opening up to each other in the course of their quest, and the unavoidable feelings arise. But we also discover more about Kayla and Daren’s past, and how it has turned them into what they are now.
I cannot disclose too much about the storyline because it would very surely spoil a really nice read, but I can tell you that it’s very well worth discovering this book and the other works from this author. I will most certainly be eagerly awaiting the release of Book #3 in the series.
