The Troublemaker by Jessica Peterson - ARC Review & Release Blitz


The Troublemaker by Jessica Peterson is now live!

Brooks Huntley is the last guy on earth I should ask to take my virginity.

He’s a decade older than me. Lethally hot. And so far out of my league it’s not even funny. The biggest downside to my plan, though?

Brooks is my older brother’s best friend.

I see Brooks every day when I deliver muffins to his office. With his swaggering confidence and sexy smirk, it’s no wonder I’ve always had a crush on him. But I’m not looking to cause any trouble—at first. I just want to give my V-card a long-overdue swipe.

Too bad I have no game when it comes to picking up guys—but Brooks is a master at charming the pants off women. While Brooks himself is off-limits, who better to study for tips on how to get laid?

When he offers me a weekend away at a five-star resort as thanks for satisfying his sweet tooth, I say yes—with the caveat that he comes too. That way I can watch him in action. He counters with a caveat of his own: he’ll come, but my brother can never find out.

On our secret getaway, I do my best to learn from Brooks and take someone new home. But I fail so miserably that Brooks steps in and kisses me “to show me how it should be done.”

And can I tell y’all, I just melted.

Now can I convince him to show me how everything should be done?

I love it when a book just works and when an author writes characters who are so strong on their own that they don't need external things happening to them in order for their story to work.

Brooks and Greer worked so well. I loved their attraction and that absolutely no one (aside from maybe the 2 if them) were surprised when their friendship became a romance.

I loved how the change from friends to lovers was handled and how real and authentic it felt.

I also really loved how sure each of them were that they were in the exact place they were meant to be and the little ways the author let the reader learn this as they did.

There was an authenticity to the emotional parts of this book that really drew me in and I think it's why some of the secondary characters also worked so well...I was so drawn to their relationship and how much I believed in it that it worked for me when others in their world also bought in to them as a couple.

Admittedly age gap is a favorite trope for me, but sometimes there's an age gap that's just perfect and this was one of those times and one of those books.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
