Perfect Kind of Trouble by Chelsea Fine

I’m a fan of Chelsea Fine, I really enjoy her new adult books. I really liked the first book in the series, Best Kind of Broken, so I was ready for the sequel. I have to admit this is not to first book I have read where characters are handcuffed together, but it’s definitely the first where the characters are handcuffed together for days because of a will. It was definitely an original concept, and it worked pretty well in my opinion. First off, the book starts at a funeral. Kayla’s dad has passed away, a man Kayla has little relationship with for the past several years. So when she shows up to the reading of the will she’s more then shocked to find Daren, the kid who used to take care of her dad’s landscaping there as well. And things get even weirder from there, they have to be handcuffed together if they want to get the inheritance that her dad left them. Both Kayla and Daren have preconceived notions of who each other are, and it turns out they couldn’t be further from the truth.

I thought that having one of the main characters named Pixie would annoy me, but I quickly discovered there was a lot more meaning behind that name and I grew to really like the nickname. Levi and Pixie without a doubt have chemistry. And it’s clear they have an extensive past. They basically grew up together as childhood friends, so there is a lot of history between them. At some point along the way that shifted from being the childhood friend to something more, and then of course, life got in the way and tragedy struck. So when the book starts there has been a year long rift between the two and to say tension is high between the two of them would be an understatement. Neither one of them is good at communication with each other about anything meaningful, so they spend their time bickering about hot water and blown fuse boxes. Really you can’t help but feel for Levi and Pixie, neither one of them is in the wrong, and you really wish they could just put all their baggage in the past and come together. But ultimately, it’s completely understand why they feel the way they do and why they just can’t communicate the way they […]
