Review: The Best Kind of Trouble by Lauren Dane

She has complete control …and he's determined to take it away

A librarian in the small town of Hood River, Natalie Clayton's world is very nearly perfect. After a turbulent childhood and her once-wild ways, life is now under control. But trouble has a way of turning up unexpectedly—especially in the tall, charismatically sexy form of Paddy Hurley….

And Paddy is the kind of trouble that Natalie has a taste for.
Even after years of the rock-and-roll lifestyle, Paddy never forgot the two wickedly hot weeks he once shared with Natalie. Now he wants more…even if it means tempting Natalie and her iron-grip control. But there's a fine line between well-behaved and misbehaved—and the only compromise is between the sheets!

The Best Kind of Trouble was exactly what I needed to get me back into a romance-reading groove.  I've loved most of Ms. Dane's stories featuring the Brown siblings or the ladies of Delicious, and the Hurley Boys are a great addition to this world.

The Best Kind of Trouble is at its most basic a reconnection love story.  Both Natalie and Paddy were crazy when they were younger.  Crazy when they knew each other.  But things have changed.  If the two of them can get over their respective hang-ups and emotional baggage, they will set the other on fire.  (They do.  Read it and see.)

"Plus, asshole, I'm unforgettable."

As with all Ms. Dane's stories in this vein, we're given the whole-damn-family too:  the Hurleys, Natalie's nutty clan, and Tuesday, Natalie's best friend.  These extended players really give life to the book -- and its main characters.    

(A very special thank you to Harlequin and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of The Best Kind of Trouble.)
