I’m tall, dark, handsome, rich as f*ck and I’m a devil in the sheets. Not to brag, but I’m a pretty great catch. I’m also trouble.

Then she walks back into my life. Last time I saw her she was just a girl. Now she’s a full grown woman with curves. Just one look and I go hard.

Eve (Between The Bookends)

This one was just OK for me. It had the bones to ba a really good story and I see the potential in this author. But this one was a bit all over the place for me. The hero starts out as one thing and then morphs into a completely different guy halfway through the book. The guy he becomes is actually the WAY more interesting persona and I wish he had been THAT guy through the entirety of the book.

My other issue was I just didn't feel a connection between Chase or Sophia. One, Sophia was a bit of a

I often take caution when I receive offers to review books from first time offers as I admit I love to read and like my comfort zone of knowing I am going to get my high…my escape within the pages of the fiction. Every once in a while though, I feel it’s a great opportunity to discover new works and to read a new author’s debut. I found the blub put out by Kara Sparks’s new book Trouble to be quite intriguing and I was hoping for a great e

>Book review – Trouble

>I am an independent reviewer. This is a standalone romance with an HEA. Chase left his hometown poor and returned a billionaire with a shady past. As he reacquaints himself with friends from his past, he sees the one love of his life, Sophia. Sophia owns a less than successful bakery and Chase decides to invest in it. There are the usual fun side characters and a dangerous ex-wife. I had a hard time imagining any scenario where Chase would marry that strange of a woman.

this book had a bit of everything, love, lust,betrayal, blackmail.
Sophia and Chase are a great couple who I really enjoyed reading about.
The author did a great job at keeping me enthralled with the characters and their story.
I volunteered for a arc of this book, and I loved it.

I just had to read this book when I read the blurb about it. I have to say that I enjoyed it and can't wait to see what else this author has in store.

I thought that things were going to good for Chase King and Sophie Gold. They both had crushes on each other when they were younger. Chase is best friends with Sophie's brother. I liked seeing these two hide their feelings for each other and just give in. I have to say that I was disappointed in Chase. He gave in to his ex and ruined Sophie. I don'

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. The story wasn't bad. I enjoyed it, in fact, but there was something about the characters that I could not get into. The relationship felt like it was only surface deep. I wanted to like the female lead, but I just couldn't/ I she annoyed me for some reason, which was the main reason I didn't thoroughly enjoy the story, but I enjoyed it enough to read on. I even enjoyed the male lead a bit, regardless of his big ass ego, but somethin ...more

Great book, Could not put down, read most of book in one night if I didn't have to work I think I would of stayed up to see what happens. Great Pace in story. So many different emotional stuff in this story. The only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5 is because of editing issues, where miss spelled words, wrong words, and words left out.

I loved this story about Chase and Sophia! It was sexy, funny, sad, intense and a whole host of other emotions. It was a great story that held you all the way up until the end. All through the story you can't help but hope that after 10 years and a lot of obsticles that Chase and Sophia finally get their HEA, and they do! This is a must read!

I am volunteering to leave a review for an ARC of this book
Trouble is Kara Sparks’ debut novel with a bad boy billionaire romance. I do love a good bad boy romance and felt that while this story plot was great and had well developed characters, I didn’t “feel” the chemistry between Sophia and Chase and felt it was almost forced somehow. However, you could tell despite all their hang-ups and outside interference, that they care for each other. This book did have all the makings for a great read though: suspense, lies, intrigue, secrets, and whole lot of ...more

Sophia just wants to be successful in her business, but after her ex racked up debt in her name, the bank is breathing down her neck. Chase left Aurora to try and make it in his own, ten years later he's a billionaire and coming home to try and get the girl he wanted all those years earlier. When they try to connect business and their pasts get in the way.

Chase and Sophie were both endearing, I thoroughly enjoyed the story, but I must admit the epilogue wasn't my favorite part.

This is a romantic tale that has been waiting to spark for over a decade; the intriguing plot, vivid scene descriptions, untold secrets, action, gripping suspense, camaraderie, humor, life-threatening incident, jealously, engaging dialogue, and toe-curling fiery romance keep you turning pages to find out what happens next. There is a heavenly happy ever after but all the truths and hurdles must be conquered first.

They have not seen each other for about ten years. Chase is now a billionaire and Sophia is struggling after a bad relationship to get her bakery going.

Then there is the fact that even though there is some crime drama it is not too much to take away form the romance between the two. Then there are Roxxie and Paris. They are great friends to Sophia and help her with not only her business but also her emotions dealing with Chase. There were some grammatical errors, ...more
