As a fan of Chelsea Fine and the finding fate series, I was really looking forward to Perfect Kind of Trouble, book two in the series.
Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father’s protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she’s forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla’s seen his type before. But Daren isn’t who he seems to be . . .
Struggling to make amends for his family’s mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He’s beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner’s princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she’s just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla’s dad could have left them . . . was each other.
I’ve really grown to love the characters that Fine creates. She likes to create arrogant male leads and spitfire heroines and I’m totally on board with that. The premise of this book was so much fun. The scavenger hunt for the mysterious inheritance that may be one dollar or a million dollars was great and having both Kayla and Daren handcuffed together made the whole adventure hilarious. The sexual tension between them sizzled throughout the entire journey and the payoff in the end made it all worth it.
The progression of Kayla’s feelings about her father and discovering all she thought was true was actually lies was heartbreaking. The character growth for both characters was painful but necessary and brought them closer together. Their individual obstacles were actually the same with being broke and practically homeless. Watching them work together to reach the end of the scavenger hunt was heartwarming.
Perfect Kind of Trouble was a satisfying, sigh-worthy romance that was an awesome continuation of the Finding Fate series. The next book, Right Kind of Wrong, will follow another character in the Finding Fate series but this time it’s stubborn Jenna and the tattooed hottie, Jack. (See what I mean about arrogant male leads and spitfire heroines!) I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
STARS: 5 out of 5
