What a great story this turned out to be - packed with cheating, double dealing, suspense, humour, vengeance and a steamy romance in a very enjoyable, fast paced story!

Cass found her boyfriend cheating on her so is determined to find someone different to sleep with. She wants a 'bad boy' to counteract the vanilla, good girl image her ex portrayed her as being. However, she chooses the bar where DEA agent Luke Calder has gone after discovering he’s the target of a drug lord. He wasn’

Hang onto your seat reading this one. It's everything it promises and more. Lies, betrayal, suspense, revenge and a good amount of steam thrown in.

Cass meets Luke one night when she walked into a bar alone, looking for some as she called it "hot, bad boy" after catching her fiancé in bed with a coworker. He told her she was boring. She's out to prove him wrong. There she meets Luke, nicely dressed who represents everything she hates, because she just walked out on the nicely dressed guy... so sh

Christina Elle is a new to me author. In Walked Trouble is the second book in her Under Covers series and is a standalone read. This book has captured my attention and has made me a huge fan.

In Walked Trouble picks up after the events of On Her Six, the first book in the series. It opens with a funny meet cute of the lead characters, Luke Calder and Cassandra Stone. The laugh out loud moments continue throughout the book, but don’t be fooled, the story does get serious and very deadly.

Great read! IN WALKED TROUBLE by Christina Elle really kept my attention right from the first scene. From that point on I was hooked on her characters and the storyline. Cassandra has just the right mix of vulnerable, sweet, full of heart, and tough, I'm not taking any more crap from lying men! Likewise, Luke is all tall, sexy swagger, gorgeous with alluring blue eyes, all the right lines, and clearly a player. Yet, he's a hero and not just as a DEA agent, but also in how he rescues Cassandra an ...more

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. I enjoyed book, and from what I gather I am assuming that this was second book in series, so I will look into that, not that it was missing anything, but just because I disliked missing anything. I loved Luke!! He originally came off as someone who was self assured, but as we continue to read, we see that he is really not, he went thru so much growing up, and he wants someone to love him, since he is so alone, god that part just broke my heart.

LOVED this book! Just the right mix of romance, steam, and suspense. With great characters and an intriguing storyline this was a very satisfying read.

Luke Calder is a DEA agent with a target on his back. The last thing he should be doing is getting involved with a woman but when Cassandra Stone walks through the bar door he is immediately drawn in. Cassandra fresh out of a relationship where she was told she was unadventurous is on the lookout for a bad bad to prove she has what it takes. Luke

In Walked Trouble is passion, heartache, and strength at its finest. Fired up with danger, secrets, and a romance that burns like the sun on the hottest day, this is a perfect combination of action and lust that keeps you flipping pages until you no longer can. And even then you burn for more; more of the hilarious bantering characters, the flames that threaten to burn the pages with their passion, and the thrilling danger of fighting bad guys. Unable to put it down, I devoured this addicting ta ...more

Luke has been targeted, in more ways than one. The first, due to his job as a DEA agent, led to his current location, a bar, as he plans to drink as much as possible while awaiting his demise. The second, however, circumvented the first as trouble literally walks in, in the form of a gorgeous woman, and though she intrigues him, she may also be the key to information he needs.

Cassandra (Cass), a high school guidance counselor, is adventurous, despite what her now ex-boyfriend, the cheater, says,

LOVED this book! Luke is at a bar one evening when Cass walks in looking for a bad boy. He's too pretty and clean cut for what she wants, but they start talking anyway and Luke is amused by her, but not particularly interested. Surprisingly, he then sees her at a drug buy that he's surveilling as part of his job as an undercover DEA agent. Luke doesn't know her role and she doesn't understand what he's doing there. Such begins one of the most unusual romances ever, as, instead of answering her q ...more

Upon finding her boyfriend cheating Cass decides a little revenge is warranted and decides to find a bad boy to sleep with. What she does instead is get drunk and pass out waking up in a house with three funny woman. This is the beginning of a book filled with humor, suspense, and heat. Cass is a counselor at a school that is having problems with drugs deaths and more. Luke is working with the DEA and on this case but Cas

By: Christina Elle

⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 Review by Kristie K

A seductive tale of drugs, danger, life, and love…Christina Elle delivers the goods with this one…

In Walked Trouble combines some of my favorite things…smokin’ hot FBI agent? Check! Undercover drug operation? Check! Beautiful heroine with a heart of gold, and the soul of an angel? Check! Hot, funny, and lovable supporting characters? Check! Amazing sexual chemistry, plenty of action (both in and out of the bedroom), and bad guys galore

This book was fantastic. Cassandra is so compassionate about her students. She goes way beyond what is expected, and truly tries to reach the troubled teens. She was definitely my favorite character.
Luke is pretty lucky to have such good friends to work with. They have each others back every single time. It was funny, all the grief that the guys give him while he's on coms. They give him a hard time and he can't say anything or else he'd blow his cover.
Luke and Cassandra make a cute couple. Ca

In Walked Trouble by Christina Elle

What a great story. Funny, heartwarming and exciting. With a serious plot and strong characters and an explosive ending that will have you holding your breath.
I loved Cassandra Stone's character, she has a great personality and I found myself laughing out loud at most of her antics. Luke Calder/DEA agent was also a great character and very much swoon worthy.

I give In Walked Trouble 4 stars for its great story with strong characters.
I would recommend this story

Please note I received a copy of IN WALKED TROUBLE from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the publisher and author.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! 5 stars and then some! Here’s why:

Christina Elle incorporated a balance of romantic suspense, humor, and sexiness to her writing. I found myself laughing out loud in the middle of the doctor’s office, in the car rider line, and then right before bed. I simply devoured the story in one day. I love a good case of mistaken identity roman

DEA agent Luke Calder finds himself needing to stay one step ahead of the bad guy that's determined to see him dead. However, it doesn't mean he can't have a little fun along the way. Meeting Cassandra Stone is a blessing, especially when he discovers she might have the intel he needs to break the case he and his team are working. Yet, when Cassandra discovers why Luke took an interest in her, will she be able to handle the truth so they can have a shot at happy ever after, or will she send Luke

This book. It’s her SECOND book. Yes, only her second. I felt like I was reading a very seasoned author when I finished it. This book is romantic suspense but let me tell you, there is plenty of humor in it, too. Just re-read the excerpt above and that’s not even one of the funniest moments. For me, the funniest moments were when Luke was talking with his other agents. Between Ash, Tyke (OMG, his story is next) and Reese, their banter is very realistic and not forced. You could tell that these g ...more

In Walked Trouble by Christina Elle is the second book of her Under Covers series by the author. This is the first time I've read her and hopefully Tyke's story will be the next book.

Surprisingly funny!

In Walked Trouble by Christina Elle is a contemporary romance that is the second book of her Under Covers series. I hadn't read the first book but I didn't feel confused or lost with starting with the second book. I decided to read this book after seeing it offered on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Luke Calder is a DEA agent that is being targeted by a drug cartel. Luke doesn’t get a chance to get away too often from his DEA team that is trying to protecting him.

I honestly had not expected this story to be as laugh out funny as it was, then changes its tone, creating a totally different feel to the a really good way. Cass is in a class of her own when it comes to smart, witty, and engaging. Luke's inner monologues in response to Cass's banter and behavior were hilarity in themselves. The author's ability to create create characters who surprise you is a wonderful way to keep a story moving along smoothly, at a quick and entertaining pace

Christina Elle did a wonderful job of bring of creating characters that reader will not only fall head over heel in love with but cheer for as the story unfolds. The story is well spaced with moments of romance mixed in with mystery.
In Walked Trouble has a lot and I mean a lot of inner monologue which is entertaining as well what causes a communication issues between Luke and Cass. The story starts to really pick up pace after they romantically get together and of course the conflict that will

WOW! I loved this book, it kept me turning pages as fast as I could from beginning to end. I did not want to see the end come. Cassandra will win you over with her loving nature for the kids and the lengths she is willing to go to try and save them. Luke will win you over with trying to do the same. When they run into each other the first time it is pretty funny and from that point on you want to see what is going to happen next.

While I was disappointed to realise I had missed the first book in this series, I was pleasantly surprised by the total grip this story had on my attention and interest.

A fabulous tale packed with suspense, deceit, action and romance; In Walked Trouble is totally true to its name and succeeds in drawing in the reader and holding on tight till the last page is read.

I’m going back to read book one, and will look forward to more thoroughly intriguing stories from this talented author.

I like this book really intriguing kept you wondering how is this or that going to work. I like this writer
This story, although a little slow to start drew me in and kept me engaged throughout. Even though there was little in the way of suspense or action. But what there was I did enjoy. Plus, the two main characters were likable. As were the secondary ones. Including Maybel, Celia and Lukes teammates. I also never once felt like I was missing out by not having read the first book in this series. And I would recommend this story to others. I would also check out that first book at some point in the f ...more

In Walked Trouble was such a fun read!! I fell in love with Cassandra as she barged into the bar to prove she wasn't 'boring" The book just got better with each page.

Luke & Cassandra were a great couple & the story was captivating. Before I had finished In Walked Trouble I downloaded the other book in the series (On her SIx) These books are stand alones.

Christina Elle is a new favorite author!

Wow! Best book in this series! I cannot express how much I loved this book! From the awesomely hilarious way the two main characters meet, to the action and suspense - it was such an incredible read. I have let a few co-workers borrow the book, all of them loved it...and they have still not returned it! I'm so glad I was turned on to this author!
