Perfect Kind of Trouble by Chelsea Fine
June 3, 2014
Arc received from Forever and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads / Review for Book One


Sometimes when perfect falls apart, a little trouble fixes everything . . . 

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.

A letter to Chelsea Fine, the author of THE BEST KIND OF BROKEN and PERFECT KIND OF TROUBLE:

I really don’t know how you do it. You make everything seem so perfectly real, so perfectly heart wrenching, so perfectly imperfect. Also, you make the guys extra hot. (that’s 10 points right there, madam) I mean it, please tell me your secret. How did you make someone who is so broken and beaten and battered a bruised so swoony? Was it his ability to just be happy? What it the way he looked at her? Like he’d never seen someone who was so. . .modest? So real? I don’t even really know what the word it. *chuckles* I don’t really know what the word it but I love it. I loved every bloody second of it. And no I am not British. But I’ve always wanted to say that. It worked there right? I think so. Oh, I’m getting off track. Sorry.
I adore PERFECT KIND OF TROUBLE just as much as I loved the first book in the series. The writing style that you have is just so freaking gorgeous. It makes every emotion, every thought and every sound seem to be amplified so that you can’t help but to sympathize with everything that out main characters have been thought. Even if the fact that they are so quick to make assumptions annoyed me to no end. Seriously. Both of them. They were like the male and female version of the other.

You know how they say opposites attract. These two are seriously (and I mean seriously) the male and female versions of the other. I don’t know how you did it. I’m so used to opposites. Great minds think alike? Birds of a feather flock together? I don’t care what saying people are going to use when they read this, but whatever it is the chemistry (and physics) is real. And is beautiful.

I love how you intertwined their stories together. I love how they knew the same man but saw two sides. I love how nothing is as it seems. I love how they acted together. I loved how they acted when they’re apart. I love Daren because he says things like “I see you” and how he makes it seem like those three words are a thousand times more romantic than I love you. When the characters got to know each other, they did the best to make the other happy. Even if they didn’t consciously do it. Plus, their thoughts? PERFECT! They were true to life thoughts and make me giggle and squeal and smile like a complete idiot. It was amazing.
Back to the smiling part. Daren knew, after she ranted of course (cause what girl doesn’t rant) that she wanted to been seen for her soul and her heart and not for her outward appearance (apparently she was a total knockout). He tried his best to make her feel like he saw her. You see why the whole I see you thing is so romantic now?

Ohmigod, I haven’t even talked about the scavenger hunt yet. That’s what brought them together. How did you think of that? Because that was pure brilliance I tell you. Pure. Brilliance.

I mean, they’re handcuffed together to find money (which may or may not be only $20) but they end up finding themselves. *le major sigh* And this is why I love New Adult. This book says it all. Everything.

Yeah. So thanks for writing it. 

So I decided to write a letter. It was mostly a ramble though. OH! AND Y'ALL NEED TO READ ALL CHELSEA FINE BOOKS.
