Star-Crossed Scandal by Kimberley Troutte was another complex and romantic roller coaster rider in the Plunder Cove series. Ms. Troutte's writing always draws me into the story from the first page.

The characters are well developed and rich with personality as Chloe and Nicholas begin a journey filled with drama, passion and intrigue as Chloe's family must once again deal with the Cuchillo cartel. Nicholas and Chloe's relationship was quick to begin but it grew deeper as they spent time together.
Dynamic! Emotional! Sizzling! Intriguing!
Plunder Cove on the California coast is the
Harper family homestead.
This is book # 3 in the Plunder Cove series.
It can be read as a stand alone.
The writing is smooth flowing and very
talented. This allows the reader to get inside
the thoughts and actions of each character.
The characters are interesting, complex and
very colorful. The main characters have an
instant attraction to one another. The supporting
characters increase the dramatics of the story.

4 1/2 STARS!

Her teenage heartthrob is standing right in front of her! With the next book in the Plunder Cove series, we are taken back to the Harper resort and knee deep into the family shenanigans that will make or break this upcoming deal for a TV show. Chloe and Nicolas are magical together, and though their relationship is fast paced, they have a connection that shows through in the emotional way it’s written. Really enjoyed their story!

There's some draw happening between the two of them. Both seem to be broken. Chloe is on a path to find herself and has given up men. until she finds her own ...more

Star Crossed Scandal is the third book in Kimberley Troutte’s Plunder Cove series. I’ve read the first two books in the series and for some reason I had a hard time getting into this book. Both Chloe and Nicolas have issues from their past that they have to deal with along with her father’s present drama. Can Chloe put aside her past and learn to trust in Nicholas? Can Nicolas find his voice again? Once I got past the slow part of the book (to me), I really enjoyed it. I would recommend Star Cro ...more

*** I received an advanced copy of this book for my honest review***

I really enjoyed getting to know Chloe more and the whole family. I didn’t care for Nicolas that much but understood where his character was coming from. The whole story came together very good. Great story, great series!! I would definitely recommend all three books.

"Star-Crossed Scandal" by Kimberley Troutte is her 3rd and last book in her 'Plunder Cove' thrilogy. Can you imagine having your teenage, musical crush coming to your home? Well, Chloe Harper is about to ask Nicolas Medeiros to have his new reality show at her family home/new resort. The chemistry between these two is fiery, and combing work with pleasure can have some major problems. With this being the last book it ties in the other two books in the series and the reader gets more information.
