Dark, Sad, Sweet

How do those all work together? Don't know but they do! This is a great one, a stand alone which I don't always like simply because I really like to delve into the characters and know them but I feel like we did that in this book. We get an intimate look into the lives of both and really begin to love them. I really don't have anything negative to say, the narration was good, but not great. Did not distract from the story at all. Very good. The story moves pretty fast. I cried several times throughout and finished in one go. This would be a difficult one to put down so I'd say don't start right before bed :) Nice sexy scenes, nothing kinky in this one, the story line is what is dark and sad not the romance.

Reformed Playboy + Abused Broken Heroine

What made the experience of listening to Trouble the most enjoyable?

Dual narrative, interesting twist but definitely had a dark vibe to it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dozer the dog!

Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden and Tatiana Sokolov – was your favorite?

Both equal however not my favorites. Their voices seem a bit old for these characters in this book.

Any additional comments?

Unfortunately, this book has a similar theme to many other books out right now. sudden reformed womanizer meets tortured abused broken heroine...

Terrible - douche alert

I don't understand how you can get a book published when the so-called "hero" is a complete douche - especially a romance. The character of Jordan completely ruined this book for me. I don't expect the characters of any novel to be perfect. In fact, the less perfect the better. But there has to be some kind of redeeming qualities to them. I couldn't find that in Jordan. Granted, I didn't complete the book either, but every time the point of view turned to Jordan I found myself hating everything about him. Even his inner monologue was horrible. He was constantly talking about his cock and how wet he could get it. He was disgusting. Usually when there is a womanizer involved, the inner monologue shows something redeemable about the character. This inner monologue only made me hate his more. Just because he loves his dog and his father doesn't mean he's a good person.

Seriously, I hated this book and plan to return it...the first time I've ever done that with Audible.

Don't waste your credit. Stay away.

OK, Not Great

This was a fairly predictable book, would be a good beach read. I did not like Sean Crisden's women's voices. Tatiana Sokolov's voice sounds like another Audible narrator. I found the pace a bit slow at times, and moved the speed up to 1.25%.

An OK listen but nothing special

This book is predictable and too much angst. It's an OK listen but nothing special. I am not sure if it's worth a credit.

WTF!

This is the worst story I ever heard. The beginning was bad enough but the rest was even worse. To explain would e a big spoiler so all I can say is listen or read but be ready to be pissed.

Why the DV?

Romance books are supposed to help you escape and this one begins with DV. Terrible. For now, I'm giving this one star for starting with stereotypical abuse and control. I'll update this review if I finish this book and the story line gets better and less predictable.

Not my favorite

I've been on a big Samantha Towle kick lately and just loving them all. This one, however, wasn't as good as the others in my opinion. I just didn't quite *feel* the connection in the romance in this one like I have in the others.

I loved it!

Mia is running from a lifetime of abuse when she meets Jordan. She shouldn’t be falling for this tattooed bad boy but she is. But can she outrun her past to have the future she deserves. Trouble is a fantastic heartbreaking read with a twist!
