Troublemaker by Kayley Loring-Review Blitz


Troublemaker by Kayley Loring is LIVE!! A teacher is about to get schooled in matters of the heart by a single dad and his young son. #One-click today!


TO: Alex Vega 

FROM: Emilia Stiles 


Dear Mr. Vega, I felt it necessary to follow up on today’s meeting, since we weren’t able to speak candidly in front of your son. I was shocked to discover that you are Ryder’s dad. Given that your ex-wife will be out of the country for a while and you are currently his primary caregiver, I’m sure you understand why we need to establish boundaries and etiquette. I think it would be best if we just pretend that we met in person for the first time today. Your son is a very bright (flirtatious and talkative) student and since his education is a top priority for both of us, I hope I can count on you to respectfully refrain from grinning at me, using that sexy tone of voice, and undressing me with your annoyingly beautiful brown eyes if we should happen to interact with each other again in the future. Thanks so much, Miss Stiles TO: Emilia Stiles FROM: Alex Vega SUBJECT: Re: Well, hello again… Dear Miss Stiles, Great to hear from you. My son’s education is indeed a top priority. As such, I respectfully agree to refrain from doing all of the aforementioned things. However, I can’t promise to stop thinking about that kiss at the bar this summer. I’ve been thinking about it for the past month. It’s interesting how humorless and uptight you are about my son’s totally awesome personality, given that I have personally witnessed just how flirtatious and talkative you yourself can be when mildly intoxicated. You’re so welcome, Alex P.S. I volunteered to be a chaperone for your next field trip. See you then.

I wasn't sure what I was going to think about this one as I was reading the beginning, but I must admit I found myself charmed by this story and really liking Emilia and Alex, more than I thought I was going to at the beginning.

I really enjoyed the banter, especially the inner dialogue each had, that allowed not only the humor to appear but you to also get a real feeling for who each of them were as people. And, I think this and the way it was written into the story are what made this book feel just a little different than all of the other single dad stories out there (and, let's face it, there are a LOT of them right now) and allowed this book to be not only engaging but also to standout a little from the rest.

I also really liked both of the characters, which helps, and I felt that both of them were evenly developed so you were able to really see not only the progression of the relationship when they were together, but also when they were apart.

And, without spoilers, I absolutely loved the mentions of her ex in this. Don't worry, not an ex conflict thing, more a point of pretty consistent humor that was both funny and very relateable.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.

Kayley Loring is a new to me Author but I was intrigued by this blurb. I absolutely love single dad romances and when you add in a teacher? Heck yes, sign me up. This was a fun, sweet read that I definitely enjoyed.

I loved getting to know Alex and Emilia. I liked how we learned about them along the way-their journal entries say a lot about them. These were both people I could see myself liking, and enjoy being around. I believed in their connection and really loved watching them navigate their relationship both inside, and outside, the bedroom.

For me, single parent books can be hard at times because I think there can be a struggle to depict the child "normally". That was not the case here. Ryder is a part of the story, he doesn't overwhelm, but he's not in the shadows either. I liked that he was acknowledged and voiced so well.

I enjoyed the sweetness, cuteness and overall good vibe I had reading this story. This is a new to me Author that I will definitely try again. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.




Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn't allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.
