And I thought Kelly's cowboys were naughty they have NOTHING on Chase, "that?" He cringed again as his co** branded her lush, wiggling a**. "Don't take it personally, sweetheart but that happens every morning." I mean he's also quite proud of his parts, "he glimpsed down at his erection. "Hell no, not when it comes to that." He looked back at her, unable to hold back the pride he held for his manhood. "Believe me, there's nothing down there that I need to be ashamed of. I've been told it's just ...more

~I received an ARC from Book Enthusiast Promotions in exchange for an honest review~

This was such a quick, cute read about things not always happening the way you want them to, but the result is even better than you can imagine.

The story revolves around Jessina Landi, who is riding the trolley in Vegas and comes across the very handsome and wealthy Chase Lennox. Of course they both have matching suitcases and they accidentally get them switched. But then some jokester decides to have a little fu

I’ve realized the theme for these books are “Let’s fall in love in two weeks” lol. This book started off good, then chapter 2 beginning confused me but quickly got unconfused. If you read this, chapter 2 is 6 months later. I felt like this book could’ve been better. “Well how does a book you gave 5 stars could be better? 🙁” it was something about the execution of the book. It felt like some thoughts weren’t well thought out, or that Kelly simply didn’t feel like explaining too much, but a little ...more

A review of Favorite places, A trouble maker novel by Kelly Gendron.

I read A LOT of romance novels and they can all be a bit the same so it was
refreshing to find a book with such an unusual premise. As the beginning of the
story is a little confusing I have had to explain it, this may act as a spoiler

Chase, AKA Mr. Hot Lips: Sexy, womanizing, arrogant, millionaire playboy. He definitely does not do relationships, no way, let alone marriage.

Jessina, AKA Little Miss Wholesome: Beautiful, quirky, sassy, funny, stubborn, and not afraid to stand up to Chase. I really liked Jessina! She says what she wants and is sarcastic—my favorite kind of heroine!

Jessina wasn’t about to be hushed by any man. “Stop it!” Her hand shot out at him. “And back up! Remember this, Mr. Lennox?” She circled h

Ms. Gendron has another winner in the Troublemaker series. I love how she interwove some of the story of Broken Fences at the end of this story. It shows how they fit together. The antics of Jessina and Chase are funny to read about. They try so hard to fight the attraction and to see who will cave first to the other they don't even realize they are falling in love. It is understandable the reluctance they have for both have been hurt by those they loved in the past and have trust issues. When y ...more

Jessina Landi doesn’t get close to anyone—literally. She needs a three-foot comfort zone thanks to issues in her past. So why doesn’t she mind bumping into Chase Lennox on the trolley? It doesn’t matter, because Chase’s luggage is stolen along with Jessina’ wallet, and Jessina’s aunt’s ashes are dumped all over the parking lot. Six months later, Jessina finds millionaire Chase to let him know someone played a joke on them with the stolen items. They’re married. And Jess needs an annulment.

Kelly Gendron’s Troublemaker series is quickly becoming the series that I sit and anticipate new releases for. I love the men in her world. The women in her books are never the wishy washy back down to an alpha male type. They stand on their own two feet and make the men fight for them.

I loved Favorite Places just as much as I loved Broken Fences.

Let me start out by saying these are definitely stand alones BUT it is fun to know who the characters with smaller parts are when their names come up.

4 stars

This is the first time I have read anything from Kelly gendron, and I must say I truly enjoyed the book. The characters were believable, the places and setting were descriptive enough to be able to place yourself there. Kelly did a great job in writing descriptive, erotic scenes. The sx scenes were very detailed and fulfilling. In addition, I liked that there was a dialogue to the story and it wasn't all about sex. She made her female character, jess, strong and able to hold her
2.5 rounded to 3 stars.

You know, it's funny that I don't mind reading cliche anything at all as long as it's well written. This story is chock full of NA romance cliches. You have the hottest man on earth who is also (shock of shocks) a manwhorish millionaire (although he does seem to be somewhat reformed). You also have the h who just can't resist him even though he could be a serious jerk with intimacy issues. There's an inconvenient accidental marriage, then a pretend relationship, and a (vie

This is the first time I have experienced a book by Kelly Gendron and it definitely wont be the last.

The two main characters Chase and Jessina were lovable and engaged the reader, even when they annoyed you.

Chase is an arrogant, cocky, sexy and extremely wealthy business man.
Jessina is a strong, beautiful woman, who is having trouble with her ex and trying to fix her life.

The two meet on a short trolley ride from the airport and while there are sparks of attraction, things take a turn when Chase

Bumping into Jessina on the trolley bus 6 months ago cost Chase dearly. He lost the deal of his life, as well as his suitcase and ID. Now she turns up on his doorstep, saying they are MARRIED!! She wants an annulment. Chase needs to close this deal, once and for all. Jessina needs money, for what, she isn't saying. So a deal is struck, and the game is afoot!.

Favorite Places by Kelly Gendron is the second book in her TroubleMaker series. The star of the tale...A piece of luggage that happens to have a long lost twin. No, not really, but it does pretty much all begin with the luggage!

Jessina bumps into Chase, quite literally, on the trolley from the airport. They both have the same luggage and there's a massive mix up. So massive that they find out six months later that they are actually married and need to get their "Marriage" annulled.

Jessina Landi is the cousin of Dusty Owens form Broken Fences is returning home from Aunt Lulu’s funeral when she bumps into Chase Lenox literally. He is an attractive man with a sculpted body (I said bumped into literally) and an intoxicating smell. Jessina is a good looking woman but she has been betrayed by a man she thought she loved and is in no way interested in men at this point in her life. Destiny has other plans.

Favorite Places is book 2 in Kelly Gendron's Trouble Marker series. I have read book 1 but each book is a complete story on its own.

The premise of this book is not particularly original but I was quickly sucked into the story and I finished it in one afternoon. At first I didn't like our hero Chase - he is a bit full of himself. But it didn't take long to fall in love with him and ultimately I like that he isn't perfect. Jes

Favorite Places is book two in the TroubleMaker series. Book one is called Broken Fences. I have not read book one. Favorite Places can be read as a standalone. I have been told that minor characters pop up in both books. I did feel that some names pop up and I didn't know who they were so I think reading book one would have been helpful.

I recommend this book.

This book includes drama, passion, betrayal, and heartache.

Jessina and Chase shared a trolley ride months ago. Now she is at his office to let him know that somehow they are married. Her wallet, his missing luggage, and someone's idea of a joke. She breaks the news and he wants her so he comes up with a way to use the marriage to keep her for a little while.

This is the first story I read by Kelly Gendron and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story begins on a trolley ride and Jessica although having impure thoughts of the sexy guy next to her she certainly didn't think she'd end up married to him. I loved the concept of this story and the writer brings you in and doesn't let go. Chase is a sexy as hell, perfect package and did I say sexy as hell guy just trying to close a business deal, when things go bad to worse they have to band together and stay mar ...more

This is book 2 in a series. I haven't read book one yet but will be soon. For the most part, I didn't feel like I was missing much as I read, although there were a couple characters that I felt were probably carry-overs from the first book.

I loved Jessina and Chase's story. Watching the relationship develop and the sparks fly made this book great. The start of their relationship was different, that's what caught my attention in the first place. Someone using your stolen identity to marry someone

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

I loved this story: for the heat between the characters; for the reasons that they both behaved as they did; for the "troublemaker" that brought them together and kept reappearing. The leads were strong willed, strongly affected by their past, and both highly principled. But sometimes love demands that principles be reassessed. The heat between them is great, and beautifully described as it escalates. This series is going

Charming, romantic, not too angsty with a believable and simple, yet imaginative story line.

This was wonderfully written, one of those story's that just make you go mmmm. The female lead - Jessina was antagonistic, strong and feisty and the male lead was equally gorgeous, controlling and humorous - Chase.

I could easily read this again. It would have been really nice had the story been a bit longer, but seriously not comp
