I’ve enjoyed Victoria Dahl‘s books in the past so when I saw she had a new book out I had to pick it up. This is the first book in a new romance series she is starting (set in one of Dahl’s favorite spots, Jackson Hole, WY) and it is taking things down a more “suggestive” route. I prefer my romances on the steamier side so I was fine with the direction Looking for Trouble went, if you’re more a fan of cozy/tender romances, this isn’t going to be the book for you.
Sophie is a librarian in Jackson Hole and while she likes dressing in 40’s style classic clothing she’s hiding a wilder side under her conservative exterior. When she finds herself crossing paths with Alex, a sexy new man in town (shaved head, tattoos, motorcycle), there is an instant attraction. She’s not looking for anything serious and neither is Alex. It’s the perfect setup. Except for the fact that the two have something of a shared past that goes back to when they were children and their parents (his dad, her mom) got involved with one another.
Sophie and Alex definitely have chemistry and they can escape from the reality of their lives when they’re together. They went into this looking for nothing more than a short-time fling, but will they find each other to be such kindred spirits they end up wanting more?
A fun, quick read. I’m not really into the whole motorcycle/bad boy thing, but I got past it. Having the main character be a librarian didn’t hurt 😉
