While listening to this audiobook, I can not help myself hearing Trouble by Taylor Swift. Cause that song is the soundtrack of this book. Although in this book, have a HFN ending, the journey to that perfect ending is long ans sweet.

I remember Miss Fine's book. I have a fond memory of the first book. Perfect kind of Trouble is a modern take on Oliver Twist. The moral of the story is money is not everything. Having the person who loves you and accepts you for who you are, that is the true happine

This is the book that I picked to read sitting on the beach during my summer vacation and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed this fun, romantic read. I have had a chance to read two books by Chelsea Fine and have really liked both of them. I am becoming quite the Chelsea Fine fan.

After having so much fun while reading The Best Kind of Broken, I knew I had to read next book in Finding Fate series. Especially, because I found Darren intriguing and incredibly sexy. So it was no brainer I would give Chelsea Fine’s

Such a cute story.
This book entertained me from the first page on.

I actually really liked Daren and Kayla. Their characters were different. I loved how bitchy Kayla was!

I loved the idea of the bracelets and that both protagonists were trapped/chained together. Every step they made ... Everything they did... They needed to do it together. It was just hilarious!!

Sometimes I laughed and smiled! But then there were moments where I couldn't stand both of them! They exaggerated too much. And sometime

Oh Chelsea Fine, how I love you! This is yet another fun, romantic read with fabulous characters and a lot of heart. I was hooked from start to finish.

In the first book of this series, Best Kind of Broken, we met Daren and Kayla, and got a very interesting glimpse of the two of them together. Definitely enough to have me eagerly awaiting their full story, and I can happily say that I was not disappointed!

Daren Ackwood and Kayla Turner are indeed the Perfect Kind of Trouble. <3
I love how Chelsea takes this series so seriously and gives each story and character tremendous depth and heart. Her writing is captivating and effortless while she pulls emotions from the reader without being overwhelming. Bravo to the second book in the series! Can't wait for Jenna and Jack. :)

Thanks Quinn for not only making me start this series, but hounding on me to keep going with it! I have a serious habit of readin

okay not gonna lie I got into maybe 3 chapters into it and DNF and debated whether or not I should continue or even add this to my shelf but the premise that two people would have to be handcuffed to each other to get a letter from her deceased father seems a little far fetched lol ill pass on this story

*4.5/5 Stars*

Perfect Kind of Trouble was the perfect kind of book to put a smile on my face.  It was exactly what I needed!  It was heart-warming, smile inducing and when the last page closed, I had this happy feeling floating around me.  There’s a reason I love this author’s writing and that’s because in my eyes she always creates female leads who are like-able and that will have you rooting for them, males who are drool worthy, broken and definitely hard to forget, and a fun, entertaining stor

This journey took me a bit longer, because I'm on vacation. With this book my eyes opened a bit more, not everyone has a good home or great and loving parents. I must say Kayla hasn't had the most luck with her mom. Both Kayla and Daren have problems with their parents. In Kayla's situation it's a bit different because her mom lied about her father and she believed it. What other choice did she have? None! I find it admiring and am proud of the people they've become, with the shitty parents they ...more

I had hoped that this would be better than the first one in the series, but unfortunately it was just as bad. I think it’s possibly just that I don’t like this author’s writing style, but I really didn’t enjoy this book.

The main characters in this book were quite alike. They were both broke, and both angry. I couldn’t quite believe just how awful Kayla was at times, and Darren was pretty full of himself.

The whole idea of the pair of them being handcuffed together was cliché at best, and general

Best Kind of Broken was my first book by Chelsea Fine and I really liked it! I’ve been looking forward to Daren’s story and was so excited when I finally got a copy. The beginning of this book reminded me of Truly Madly Yours by Rachel Gibson, which isn’t a bad thing because it’s probably my favoritest book ever (I’ve read it about 7 times). Kayla has returned back home to her father’s funeral. A father who hasn’t spoken to Kayla in years and who Kayla wasn’t even aware was s

I enjoyed this book more than Book 1. This one features Daren who we met in the first book.

Daren didn't have great parents himself so when he worked for James Turner he found 'the old man' as he called him taking him under his wing but since losing his on again/off again girlfriend through a car accident he partly blames himself for, Daren hadn't spent much time with James in the last year and then James died. At the funeral Daren sees James' estranged daughter Kayla. They each have pre conceiv

I started Perfect Kind of Trouble this afternoon and read it in one setting. It was unputdownable. And now I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes, smiling.

When Kayla Turners father dies, her life cannot possibly get any worse. Estranged from him for years, she only attends the funeral on the off chance that he possibly left her something in his will. He was incredibly wealthy and Kayla has been living in poverty for years with her ailing mother. Broke, homeless and out of options, Kayla is desperate for a new start.

What do funerals, wills and handcuffs have in common? For Kayla and Daren, they are the difference between an inheritance and going home just a little more broken, a little more alone with a lot less understanding of the man who is playing with them from beyond the grave.
When Kayla returned to the small town her estranged father lived in, she has one goal, get through the funeral, get through the reading of the will and get on home, if her car will make it. Daren Ackwood plays the little rich ki

The publisher has very kindly sent me a review copy even though I've already read this last year. Just before I started blogging too! I've decided to reread it now and share my thoughts :) The second time around was just as fun as the first. The whole reason I picked up this book in the first place was because the premise intrigued me. I mean handcuffing two people together to go on a treasure hunt? I'm in~

5 out of 5 Stars for a wonderful sequel to the Finding Fate series!

*** ARC provided in exchange for an honest review ***

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 l

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Chelsea Fine has done it again and I am an emotional wreck after this one...
This story touched me on so many levels and it even had me texting my dad and letting him know that I loved him...
I know that is probably weird...but believe this book and you will find yourself doing the same...
Perfect Kind of Trouble picks up somewhat during/after Best Kind of Broken. But instead of following Pixie and Levi, we travel along with Daren and Kayla.

"Perfect Kind of Trouble" was an amazing and beautifully written second installment in the Finding Fate series, and I absolutely fell in love with it from the very beginning. I was completely addicted throughout, and couldn't get enough of Kayla and Daren's story. Kayla and Daren were phenomenal characters, and I couldn't help but fall in love with them. Their personalities were wonderful and complemented each other well. They made a perfect couple and I was so thrilled with the way their story ...more

A really cute, sometimes maybe a little cheesy, romantic story about two lost souls brought together by the death of the h's, Kayla's, father, who also was a father-like figure to the H, Daren. In his will, the father states that in order to find their inheritance, the H/h must follow clues he has left while handcuffed together (yes, cheesy).

What absolutely makes this book are the H and h. They are beautiful people, both inside and out. Both broke, down on their luck with huge abandonment issues

This was such a cute and easy read. I loved the storyline and the characters. It was slow going at times but I still really enjoyed it. I will definitely continue this series. Looking forward to Jenna and Jack's story.
This was sweet! It was fresh, multi-layered, and romantically adorable.

I was not a huge fan of book one in the series, but since I owned it, I decided to give book two a chance. I was actually happy to see it followed different characters. Chapter one caught my attention right away, and I knew I was going to enjoy this more than I did the first one.

I enjoyed the scavenger hunt and how it related to a positive memory of Kayla and her father.
I liked Daren and his sarcastic ways. I liked how both characters had total different views of each other compared to who they

Perfect Kind of Trouble is the second book in the Finding Fate series by Chelsea Fine. You can read these books as stand alone novels, or as a series. (I highly recommend reading them as a series, but there won't be any huge spoilers if you choose not to.) You can read my review for the first book, Best Kind of Broken here.

Perfect Kind of Trouble follows Daren and Kayla on their journey to find the messages, and in the end, the truth that Kayla's dad (and Daren's pseudo-dad) left them after hi
