The Best Kind of Trouble by Lauren Dane (Book Review)

A librarian in the small town of Hood River, Natalie Clayton’s world is very nearly perfect. After a turbulent childhood and her once-wild ways, life is now under control. But trouble has a way of turning up unexpectedly—especially in the tall, charismatically sexy form of Paddy Hurley….

And Paddy is the kind of trouble that Natalie has a taste for.

Even after years of the rock and roll lifestyle, Paddy never forgot the two wickedly hot weeks he once shared with Natalie. Now he wants more…even if it means tempting Natalie and her iron-grip control. But there’s a fine line between well-behaved and misbehaved—and the only compromise is between the sheets!

This is the first full-length novel I’ve read by Lauren and I had mixed feelings regarding it. First of all, I want to express my appreciation for her using characters that are polar opposites of each other in regards to their career  choices. A librarian and a rock star…..can’t get more different than that.
I liked the fact she didn’t show them having all “sunny” moments during their reunion after all these years apart. We all have arguments with the ones we love and that’s all part of growing as a couple. Kudos for bringing “real life” instances into this tale. Those tiny touches make the story more alive – more relatable to a reader. 
My only negative comment about this story is some chapters ended rather abruptly before moving on to the next. It read rushed as if she was unsure how to wrap it up and threw a couple lines down to get it over with. It had a disjointed feel to me.  
Will I give the series another chance? I’m debating this as I type. She did tease me with enough tidbits about Ezra and Tuesday to consider another purchase.
