Trouble is a remarkable, heartbreakingly beautiful friends-to-lovers rockstar romance that put me through all of the feels. As soon as I cracked open my kindle, I found myself completely immersed in the story, invested in the characters, and unable to put the book down! To say that I devoured it is an understatement!
This author has the impressive ability to draw the reader in and make you feel like you are experiencing what the characters themselves are experiencing. She takes great care in incorporating interesting subject matter into her books with respect, sensitivity, and awareness. As such, I not only find her characters well developed and real, but I also learn from them. This friends-to-lovers rockstar romance has that perfect amount of drama, angst, steam, and swoon worthy moments that made the book such a joy to read.
Lars Trouble is the infamous drummer for the Darling Devils. He is the man in the shadows and is usually the responsible and reasonable one taking care of his friends / band. I completely adored him. Naomi is a likable heroine with a backstory that pulls at your heartstrings. She is perfectly flawed, but is also brave and strong. Lars and Naomi are best friends, but they are oblivious to what everyone else around them sees - that they are in love with each other. Secrets and misunderstandings threaten the foundation of their relationship and their journey is one that you won’t want to miss.
Their story was such an emotional and entertaining read. I loved Lars and Naomi and I also liked the secondary cast of characters - especially band members Dan and Art. The writing in this novel is impeccable and the story flows well at a great pace. I was sad when it was all over as I love these characters so much. The author has paved the way for bass player Art to have his own book and I am chomping at the bit to get my hands on his story - Sweet. Trouble is book two in this author’s Darling Devils rockstar series. It can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading Darling to get the full experience.
I read an early, complimentary version of this book.
“What about this one?” Lars dangles the tiniest bikini he has found in the shop on his
finger. It’s more a fingernail than a piece of clothing.
“Perfect, let me try it on first and walk around the shop to be sure everyone appreciates it.”
“No way, woman,” he grunts. “I want you to wear it inside.”
“Why would I wear this inside when I could be naked riding your cock?” I quirk an
“Because suggestive clothing is a veil to desire. I prefer to have a peek behind the curtain
than being invited to a show with the curtain wide open,” he shrugs.
“I know. And that’s because you’re a man of the shadows, babe. Buy it if it rocks your
world. I’ll wear it for you tonight. But for the beach, I need something covering a lot more.” I
continue my search through the rack until I find a cute black bikini. I turn around to show Lars
and find him scrutinizing me.
“I need to try on my bathing suit,” he says, zooming in on my breasts.
“So stop looking at my tits and go?” I point at the changing room. The shop is the typical
surfer shop full of clothes and bracelets made from recycled plastic you find in the ocean. It’s
tiny and has a hippie beach vibe to it no one can resist. It even smells like monoi and coconut.
“I can’t.” He smiles. I can see the glimmer in his eyes that it’s nothing serious. Probably,
one of his stupid ideas like how he decided he always needs a couple of beers or he will get an
earache. To this day, he still believes that if he has only one, his ear will not hurt.
“Why?” I roll my eyes not even waiting for his answer before knowing it’s stupid.
I don’t think it’s a good idea to try on a bathing suit with a hard-on,” he whispers.
“Because you can catch HDD?” I smile.
“I read it somewhere Lars. If you try on bathing suits with an erection, you might get Hard
Dick Disease, and Mr. Selfish will stay in that state for your girlfriend to ride you whenever and
wherever she wants. It’s scientifically proven.” I laugh at my own joke. Lars smirks.
“You’re a dork.”
