His slow spreading smile is trouble. As a matter of fact, everything about this man says trouble with a capital T.

The Trouble with Love was sweet, sexy, and such a fun read! Who doesn’t love a good brother’s best friend book/work place romance. This one really hit the spot.

Morgan and Bennett meet and spend one glorious night together. Both are going through some things in their life, and it’s just a one-night stand, but it’s memorable. Even a year later… when they get introduced fo

The Trouble with Love is one of those books that kept a smile on my face the entire time I was reading. I loved the relationship between Morgan and Bennett and I thought they were just adorable together. I can't even say they had the easiest time getting together, but the journey was so sweet that I enjoyed every moment, even the angsty ones.

I liked that the book kept a really lighthearted type of feeling for the most part, but

3.5 cupid, second chance, sweet stars!

As soon as I start this book, I was afraid it was forbidden office romance and Bennett is like a douchebag character from Beautiful Bastard. But thanks the author’s well developed characterization, this Bennett is sweeter, more romantic, passionate and also sexy as hell, knows what he wants and does whatever it takes to gain our heroine, Morgan’s heart. So let’s give our hero full five stars ( God, I feel like I’m evaluating my last Uber driver 😃)

I am such a huge fan of Claire's work. She can write suspense, emotional, light and fun, and The Trouble with fun is the perfect sexy and entertaining romance. I am so in love with these two! Their chemistry is INSANE!! I read this book with a huge smile on my face.

The chemistry and banter between these two is what really sealed the deal for me when it comes to how much I enjoyed this book. Bennett is swoonworthy to the max. There wasn't a single

when i first started reading romance, claire contreras immediately became one of my favorite authors. unfortunately, her latest releases have been somewhat disappointing, this one included.

morgan: one year ago, morgan had an amazing one night stand with bennett. she never expected to see him again, until she does. and he just so happens to be the owner of the company she has just started working at. and he also happens to be her brother's best friend.

Morgan just got hired by her dream company.

But her new boss - or rather the junior boss - is none other than her (unforgettable) one-night stand from a year ago!


Plus - he's also her brother Devon's best buddy from College!

Can Morgan and Bennett resist being this close to each other every day? And will Dev kill his best friend when he finds out what happened between them???


What will happen to Morgan & Bennett?
Will there be a HEA?

DNF at 41%

It's no secret that I'm a serial DNFer. I mark books as DNF even if I just read a few pages and realize that I'm not in the mood for that kind of book. Once marked as DNF I very rarely try it again at a later time.

Now with this book, I really tried and when I say I tried I mean I read until 40% which is a lot for me. After 10% I could already feel that this book wasn't for me. But because I kindly received an ARC from the author I forced myself to continue reading. I wanted to like thi

I knew without a doubt that I would love this book because Claire Contreras is that good and I was right! This was amazing.

I'm immediately sucked in to the world she creates. I fall in love with the characters "Bennett and Morgan" and for this love I feel their pain. My heart twitches when they smile.

This was such a fun, cute, charming, sexy read. I definitely found myself laughing out loud and even shaking my head with some of the banter 😂 .

A feel-good, lighthearted brother’s best friend romance that will put a smile on your face. Claire always has the best banter between her characters and Bennett and Morgan were so much fun to read about. Bennett had my heart from the one-night stand and I knew he would be different for this hard to trust girl. Sometimes we make mistakes and while I understood Morgan’s distrust, I knew in my heart that Bennett was the perfect guy for her. ❤ ...more

I don't whether to like or love this story... There were parts that I enjoyed but overall, 'I am still confused with what I read'. The app building thing and the idea isn't sitting well for me.

Plus, way too much cheesy dramas. I think it's about authors moved away from this kind of writing ideas. For crying out loud, is this only we have in a different environment? Girls meets boy, have fun, developed feelings, drama comes in, path back, HEA!!!!

Goshhhh, total snooze fest!

This book was definitely not for me. I hated the heroine. She was a little all over the freaking place. Heroine was a little over dramatic and overly jealous. I skimmed sooooooo much because seriously it was boring and kinda blah. And im sorry but did I read that she let a guy rape her when she was 14? Uhmmm what?? And it wasnt mentioned ever again? What? Did I read that right?

Sorry Claire Contreras, I usually love her books but this was a hell naw for me. I honestly

It's always a good day when Claire Contreras gives us another one of her books to read, I can simply never get enough of them. The Trouble With Love is a sweet and sexy read that I think many can enjoy. With many of her previous books being emotionally-charged, this one was a bit on the lighter side, which I didn't mind at all.

The more we get to know Morgan, I felt like I connected a lot more with Bennett. These two have a bit of a past and Morgan is still dealing with the issues she has with he

My English review

I’ve only read one of the author’s novels so far, but I really loved it, so I was curious to get into another one of her stories. And then… how can you resist such a synopsis?

Morgan didn’t expect her one-night stand to be one of her bosses when she went to work at the agency of her dreams. Worse, he’s still as sexy as ever and he seems to want her as much as she wants him. Problem, it’s never good to mix pleasure with work. Even worse? He doesn’t believe in r

The Trouble with Love is just as sexy and swoony as you’d expect from the phenomenally-talented Claire Contreras. A year ago, Bennett and Morgan had an unforgettable one-night stand, and both are shocked when they are reunited and realize that he is her brother’s best friend and her boss. Oops. These are undeniable reasons to avoid a relationship, but their attraction for one another makes it difficult to resist. As they work side-by-side, Bennett realizes that Morgan might be worth breaking the ...more
3.8 Stars

This book is different from the other books I read of this author, since in most of her stories there is an emotional and dramatic charge, here is a lighter book and I found it refreshing and exactly the kind of reading I needed at the time.

The Trouble With Love brings a fun, engaging, sexy, sweet story. I really liked Bennett, and although I find Morgan a bit childish and immature at times I think they as a couple worked well and I've been rooting for them throughout history. Overall,

Claire did IT AGAIN. You ask what did she do again.... She made another masterpiece is what.
I absolutely love all of Claire's book so I without a doubt knew this book would be amazing.

The story sucks you in on the first page. Like what author can do that? Not many that's for sure!

Morgan and Bennett are such lovable characters. Both have alot of hurt when it comes to romance but the spark between them is everything!

Absolutely adored this book. Right from the prologue, we got some great banter between 2 characters down on their luck. The two characters just brought it and I wanted more. Fast forward to a year later and we see the two characters whose paths cross again and it turns into a light, funny, and sexy office romance/brother's best friend romance. I was all in!
Bennett and Morgan's story continues in the office and it circles around an app that Morgan is testing within the company. It happens to be a

Ohhh my goodness, what can I say about this book? It took me out of one of my book slumps. You know when nothing you read grabs your attention at all. New books, favourite authors, re-reads and nothing worked. I was so upset as I read everyday and then I get this book and I couldn’t put it down. The story and words just flowed so effortlessly and the story grabbed me instantly.
Bennett and Morgan were so good together and separately. Loved both of them hard, their chemistry and friendship was off

I love the name Bennett Cruz. It sounds like he must be a sexy tall dark and handsome man and I can tell you with a resounding yes that he is just that.

The banter between him and Morgan Tucker is joyful. He calls her Cupid because of her hopes to match people with their forever love. She calls him Trouble, because he is.

The Trouble With Love is brother’s best friend and colleague romance. It’s light hearted and it works. There’s no huge drama, although there are ups and downs. A sweet quick and
