Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Oh, to be ravaged by the Beast. Hot, hot, hot!! If I’d known antiquing could be so hot I might have to start watching antique shows. Although it might just be these two because Spencer and Joselyn are steamy in all the ways!!!

Mr. Freeze and Fiery Redhead, this chemical reaction of course would create steam when they get together, BUT let’s talk about the dominant, alpha, a-hole….Spencer. He is all things filthy when his expensive suit comes off. Oh my, yes, and please.

Joselyn or Sly or Sin…whatever you want to call her, I love her fiery soul. She is full of sass, fire, and spirit. Exactly what Spencer needs, but refuses to acknowledge because he is of course Mr. Freeze.

While I could go on about how hot these two are, there is also a part of the story that made my heart race for an entirely different reason. Joselyn is staying with her sister, Courtney, while she has a restraining order on her ex, is still coming around threatening that he wants to see his son, Ollie. My heart was pounding out of my chest so many times over tense moments and Tia was a master at weaving these tense moments with all the smexy times.

As much as Spencer or Joselyn didn’t want any trouble in their lives, they both find themselves in the thick of it and this book is fantastic for dipping your toes into a whole pot of delicious trouble.


Legend has it, the man you kiss at a wedding is the man you’ll marry.
In my case, it’s nothing but trouble…

Spencer Carrollton is a dark-haired, hazel-eyed beast.
When I collided with him at my cousin’s wedding, I wasn’t looking for love.
But his naughty eyes flashed, his full lips curled into a knowing smile, and I should have run.
I didn’t.
I kissed him instead.

Then he gave me a job when I needed it the most.
I never get involved with clients, but Spencer Carrollton is wickedly handsome in a bespoke suit.
He’s devastatingly sexy out of it.
He’s possessive, demanding, and the best sex I’ve ever had.

He’s an arrogant billionaire, who thinks I’ll fall at his feet, but I’m not going down that road again.
Until he pulls me out of danger and insists I move in with him to be safe.
As the nights pass and we grow closer, I know I’m losing this fight.
Spencer Carrollton always gets what he wants.
The trouble is, he wants me.

(TROUBLE is a STAND-ALONE, enemies-to-lovers, billionaire-boss romance. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)
