Trouble by Adriana Locke- Now Live!

My Take:

Trouble brings us back to the wonderful world of Dogwood Lane, and it is my favorite book in the series so far! Each book gets better and better. Flirtatious carpenter Penn Etling is knocked for a loop when new-in-town Avery Perry doesn’t fall for his many charms. Not used to being turned down, Penn finds he can’t let Avery walk away. Avery has a secret: She’s already experienced Penn’s charms many years ago but he doesn’t remember. She knows that she can’t let history repeat, but fate (or her aunt) keeps throwing them together.

I loved the relationship between Penn and Avery, and Penn and Matt, and Penn and Dane, and Penn and… okay maybe I just loved Penn once he stopped the constant innuendo. He takes a real journey on the love train to find out his views of himself and relationships maybe aren’t as hard coded as he thought. There is hilarious banter, serious sparks, and lots of familiar favorites from the previous books. 5 stars


She wants something real. He wants something now. Together they’re trouble in USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke’s sexy and funny twice-in-a-lifetime love story.

With his shameless grin and let’s-play swagger, carpenter Penn Etling leaves women wanting in Dogwood Lane. What do they get? Avery Perry knows: a one-night stand. She’s been there. She remembers every hot pulse as if it were yesterday. But Penn? He doesn’t remember a thing. Now he’s making new moves, and Avery’s not falling for trouble…again. Is she?

How could the beautiful stranger resist him? Avery is going to be a challenge for the bad boy. She’s the kind of woman who digs deep—deep enough to see there’s more to Penn than meets the eye. But first she has to give him a chance. She has to say yes. Could she also be the woman to make him change his playboy ways?

When these two come together, it’s hard to pull them apart. But with love and trust on the line, can Avery and Penn get what they both want? This time for keeps?
