Sinfully sexy bad boy yacht builder and photographer Jace Savage has lived an explosive, drug abusive, reckless, sex-filled life, playing by his own high-voltage rules. When he met Zoé Dubois, his life and bad behaviors came to a scorching stop - until trouble re-surfaced. How much trouble can a "life on the edge" and all around bad boy take?
He's about to find out. Trouble comes knocking when the well-being of the child in his care hangs in the balance, thanks to sudden interest from her grandparents, her once disinterested father and Jace's obsessive ex-girlfriend, Kate.
Determined to give Zoé the passionately intimate life she deserves, in a seaside town away from Seattle, as well as sexy exploration on a daily basis, choices have to be made. Will Jace be man enough to make them? Couple his desire to change with his constant urge to run, and you have the gut-wrenching, heart pounding, suspense filled romance, Trouble Times Two.
This was a good story and the characters seemed real and unique. The narrator did a pretty good job.
Jace is a likable guy but uses the work "baby" a little too much. He has a lot of baggage from his past that has lead him to act the way he does. He has anger issues and is trying hard to keep things in place.
Zoe seems to be a great person that despite Jace's irrational behavior has a lot of patience with his insecurities & overwhelming behavior.
There is quite a bit of emotional baggage that also burdens Zoe. Despite all the odds, Zoe & Jace love each other and go through a lot together and do all they can to get custody of his niece.
In my point of view, the dialogues use too many offensive words.
This is not my favorite genre but I did enjoy the story line. There is a reality feel to this story. It is heart felt and emotional. I prefer a lighter read with fantasy, adventure, and twists.

very good. well writen and narrated. will read more by this,author
What did you like best about Trouble Times Two? What did you like least?
This, time the Characters were a bit more believable. There was an honesty and an understanding between the two leads that sounded more like a real relationahip.
What other book might you compare Trouble Times Two to and why?
Not sure I try not to compare books. They are each so different with different states of minds from the authors.
What didn’t you like about Zachary Liebenstein’s performance?
This narrator needs work and that is putting it mildly. First, he doesn't know the correct pronunciations of the words. It was like he looked them up on google but didn't bother to look at the phonetic portion. Second, the emphasis on the words for certain characters was ay too forced.
Was Trouble Times Two worth the listening time?
Yes, the story line was so much better than the previous one I am very glad that I spent the time and effort of listening to a not so good narrator to hear the finish of the series.
Any additional comments?

I finished Trouble Times Two by Calinda Be and it took me awhile before I could get all my emotions in check. This book was perfect and I have nothing bad to say about the story and especially the narrator. I know that I've ranted about a particular narrator that Calinda has chosen in two if her other audiobooks but this one along with the book before this one was great!
Narrator Zachary Liebenstein did a fantastic job! He kept me glued to my seat with every word that he poured out. I especially liked when his voice would get softer and quieter. I didn't have any problems with distinguishing each characters voice and accents so it was easy to know which character was speaking throughout the story. I hope to hear more work he's done in the future. Overall, this is a 5 star rating!
I feel that she could push this story into another direction and go ahead and make it a bigger series or do this one as a standalone but I think it will take two stories to complete it. I think she should write a story about Jace's sister. Her life living wild, the drugging, and partying. Then write a second book of her getting her life together and meeting someone special. Basically the exact same thing she did with Jace but a bit different. Remember, give it some thought on writing two books about Jace's sister. I know they will sell, I guarantee it!
Not that great of a story...weak plot. Nine hour book could've been cut in half. Male narrator did a fair job of transitioning between male and female characters.

Calinda B brings us another hot, wild ride for Jace and Zoey. The book picks up right where Looks Like Trouble to Me leaves off, so it is recommended that you read book one first. So much trouble follows Jace, it is hard to believe he has turned out as good as he has. You just melt every time he talks to Marni..his "baby girl"..a bad boy with a baby, you can't get hotter than that. Zoey and Jace face many challenges in this book. They work on trust and opening up to each other while juggling real life's struggles. Between Billy and Janna's wrenches that they keep throwing into the mix, and school, work and taking care of Marni, Jace and Zoey are able to pull through. I especially enjoyed meeting Zed, he helped us see some of Jace's past and how he is able to learn to cope and forgive.
Calinda is constantly bringing us great stories of struggle, it's refreshing to have a story where there are real life issues being dealt with.
Zachary Liebenstein continues to narrate this story with his mellow baritone voice. He brings sensuality to the story and emotion. He is the perfect voice for the story from the hot sex scenes to the emotional Zoey breakdowns.
I don’t usually read many books from this genre, but I really enjoyed this one. The narration brought the story to life and held my interest throughout. The story was well thought out, complete and will keep you listening. I will be watching for this author in the future.
