[Pat's Review]: "Trouble"

contemporary romance, romance novel covers, Trouble by Avery Flynn
Trouble by Avery Flynn
Publisher: Avery Flynn (June 27, 2017)
Series: Bad Boys Homecoming, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance with Suspense

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romance from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn. 

Brains and a badass attitude. That’s all troublemaker Leah Camacho took with her when she left Catfish Creek. She’d promised herself she’d never go back, but when the invite to her tenth high school reunion arrived along with the chance to show everyone who doubted her what a success she’s made of herself, she couldn’t resist. However, when she discovers a 15-carat, stolen diamond in her rental car’s glove box, there’s only one man she can turn to for help—the same sexy, stubborn domineering man who’d smashed her heart all those years ago. 

Sheriff Drew Jackson knew a long time ago that Leah Camacho was nothing but trouble and has sworn to never get caught up in her again—no matter how damn sexy she is or how badly he’d failed to forget her. But, when the woman who test drove his heart right into a concrete wall rolls into Catfish Creek with some serious bad guys on her tail, it’s up to him to keep her safe—even if that means guarding her hot bod 24/7 without giving into temptation or losing his mind.

Pat's Review:

A second chance romance with suspense, laughter, a million dollar diamond, and a high school reunion -- not to mention a lot of heat!

Leah Camacho was headed to Catfish Creek for her high school reunion. She is a very successful owner of a shop called Botanical Solutions in Denver, a legal marijuana dispensary. Finding out from the rental agency she gets to drive an Aston Martin for a week makes her day! Seems suspicious but how often would she get to drive such a sleek, awesome car? When she finds a small bag in the glove box, she heads back to turn it in, and the building is closed and dark. She'll hand it in when she brings the car back.

Unfortunately that is the end of her lucky day.

After blowing a tire, Leah sees Sheriff Drew Jackson pull up behind her. They had a very hot encounter one summer after grad school and Leah never forgot  him. The local service station needs to order a special tire and gives her everything that was in the car. She heads to the local diner for a much needed burger and fries when she is confronted by two thugs saying they wanted what she had in the car. Again rescued by Sheriff Jackson, they decide to figure out what the Rhinestone Cowboys (Leah's nickname for the thugs) are looking for. It turns out that in the little bag is a 1.6 Million dollar diamond! And the Feds are looking for it too. Looks like Leah will be bait, which makes Drew very uncomfortable, and his protective side takes over.

Drew Jackson is in the last few days of his job as sheriff. He's hoping to head to Ft. Worth for a job. In school, he was known as Mr. Law and Order, and Leah was Miss. Trouble. Looks like things haven't changed. His typical day is trying to mediate arguments about a cat wandering in the mayor's yard, and other exciting "crimes." Now Leah is back in town for half a day and there's suddenly enforcers and Feds in his town. Thrown together to protect Leah, the heat grows, and they both realize what a mistake they made years ago. But Drew is holding back on information that could blow his second chance.

There is a visit from the B-Squad (Leah's brother is an operative), plus danger and romance. This can be read as a stand alone, and is a very exciting read.
