From New York Times Bestselling Romance Author Jo Raven.
Hailey moves to a new city, leaving her past behind and starting a new life. All she wants is to forget about her cheating ex and be happy. The last thing she expects is to fall for a local bad boy with an even worse reputation, no matter how handsome he is and how he can’t stop undressing her with his eyes…
TROUBLEMAKER is the prequel to my novel CAVEMAN (releasing May 29, 2017) – but it is also a standalone short story.

My Review:

Trouble MakerTrouble Maker by Jo Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars to Trouble Maker (Prequel to Caveman – coming May 29) by Jo Raven.

Hailey and Kaden…..

In case you are wondering….Trouble Maker was previously released in the anthology We Wish You A Naughty Christmas and was previously titled Exposed.

Jo Raven has never written a book that I didn’t absolutely love! Trouble Maker is no exception! But I do have one complaint…..I wanted it to be longer!

Kaden’s story broke my heart as all of Jo Raven’s heroes do. I thought Kaden was a perfect hero. He was protective, loyal and attentive. He was sweet too. I will add he was so sexy and sinful. The problem Kaden was dealing with was that a rumor started by an ex-girlfriend make him the topic of of the town. It was not anything good being said. People believed the rumors and thought him to be…well I don’t want to say what. This story is so short and I don’t want to ruin any of it for you.

Kaden not only had a bad reputation from the accusations made against his character, but some personal troubles as a result. I felt awful for how he was treated. For how alone he was and felt.

Hailey is new in town and doesn’t know anything about Kaden when she eyes him for the first time across a bar. And even when she hears the rumors, she can’t stay away.

Kaden and Hailey had chemistry from their first moment locking eyes. Although she was attracted to Kaden, there was some worry and mistrust on Hailey’s part. But once she decided she wanted to be with Kaden, and despite a dew bumps in the road, they fell for each other quickly.

This story may have been short but it has all the ‘feels.’

I wanted more!
