Daren Ackwood is a bad boy with a mysterious past-He’s the kind of guy who knows he can get any girl he wants. Kayla doesn’t do bad boys-in any sense of the word. They have a tendency to leave scars and dust trails in their wake, and Kayla isn’t running short on either. So when Daren rolls up to her father’s funeral in his shiny sports car, Kayla knows she needs to keep her distance during her brief stay in this tiny God-forsaken town. She’s here to take care of her father’s will, nothing more. The trouble is, Daren doesn’t see it that way. And he usually gets his way.

Quick & Dirty: This book was seriously just so much fun to read. Full of steamy romance, great humor, forgiveness and wonderful characters, I feel comfortable in recommending this to all fans of the new adult genre.

Opening Sentence: On the other side of the casket, a middle-aged woman wearing a navy blue dress glares at me.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Daren Ackwood has lived a very privileged life, well at least until the last year he did. He had rich parents and was an only child, but then his mom decided to leave and things started going downhill after that. His father turned into a heavy alcoholic and his girlfriend died in a car accident. Then his father takes things a step too far and Darren is left to pick up the pieces. He has always had a bad boy reputation and he has made it pretty clear that he is only interested in one night stands. When he goes to Old Man Turner’s funeral and he see’s Turner’s daughter, Kayla, for the first time in years and he might decide to break his own rule just this once.

Kayla Turner has been hurt enough in her life. When her parents got divorced when she was young it was painful, but nothing can compare to the pain she felt when her father stop being a part of her life. On her 16th birthday he promised to come and visit her, when he didn’t show up she was heartbroken, then he stopped taking her calls. It has been years since she has seen or talked to her father, now he is gone and she has to go to his funeral. The last few years have been really hard for Kayla. She has no money and has had to give up a lot to try and take care of her drug addict mother. Now all she has left to do is take care of her father’s Will and leave town for good. But there is a catch, you see Old Man Turner had a lot of money and the only way Kayla will ever see a penny of it is if she handcuff’s herself to the very handsome bad boy Daren Ackwood.

Darren is a very charming character. He is gorgeous, cocky, and just all out sexy. He knows that girls find him attractive and he has used that to his advantage. But he is also very honest and up front about how he feels about relationships. He just doesn’t do relationships and that’s the way it is. Darren puts on this tough front, but underneath he is very vulnerable. The cockiness he expresses is his way of hiding his own insecurities. Deep down he is a very good person and I had a lot of respect for him. I thought he was an excellent love interest and I totally fell for him.

Kayla is such a sweet girl that has had a lot of unnecessary suffering in her life. But what I liked best about her is that she hasn’t let all the pain make her bitter. Yes, she is angry but she has a right to be. As the truth unfolds it was wonderful to watch her deal with everything and come to terms with her relationship with her father. I felt a deep emotional connection with Kayla and found that I could really sympathize with her situation. She is a hard worker and deserves a bright future. She is someone I can easily look up to and admire for being strong. I loved her character and I am so glad I got to read her story!!!

Perfect Kind of Trouble is so much fun but totally sexy as well. The sexual tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife, but at the same time Fine manages to implement tons of humor into the story as well. Honestly, once I started reading, I just couldn’t seem to put it down. The story was just pure entertainment and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was easy to feel an emotional connection to the story and I instantly feel in love with the characters. Fine’s writing style is so refreshing and I find that she is the perfect author to go to when I am in a reading funk. There is just something about her stories that I love and I have quickly become a huge fan. I will gladly read anything she writes in the future. I would highly recommend this series to anyone that enjoys a well told and entertaining story with lots of drama and sexy romance.

Notable Scene:

I stare down at the couch rip until I hear my father clear his throat. “Hello Kayla and Daren.” I look up. “If you’re watching this, then I assume I’m dead. Which is unfortunate, because I really liked being alive.”

I already hate this.

“Nevertheless, now that I’m gone I have a letter I want to leave to you—to both of you. The only catch is that you two must agree to wear handcuffs while retrieving it.”

I blink not sure I heard him correctly.

He smiles. “It’s really the only way to ensure that you stay together and cooperate with each other. You’re both only children with circumstances that have taught you not to rely on others, and being such, I’m sure your first instincts will be to separate and go at it alone. So you’ll understand why I feel the handcuffs are necessary.”

My jaw drops. It actually falls open in shock.

Finding Fate Series:

1. Best Kind of Broken
