My Swoon for this week comes from:

Perfect Kind of Trouble
(Finding Fate #2)
Chelsea Fine   

First - The Blurb:

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.

Second - The Swoon:

"This is why we give into the storm of love. This something that is neither word nor feeling, found in quiet gazes and cookies in the dark. Hidden in cotton candy secrets and gentle shower soapsuds. It creeps up on you and slips inside, and before you know it, love owns you completely. But when it leaves, it rakes you insides, ripping at your soul until you're shredded and undone. then, and only then, do you realize you were in love."

I first met Daren in Best Kind Of Broken. Although we only got glimpses of him, it was obvious that he was mischievous, sexy and totally full of himself. Reading his story in Perfect Kind Of Trouble, I discovered that they were not his only attributes. Sweet, kind, sensitive and compassionate can also be added to the list. Yeah, he's one hell of a guy.

Kayla is strong, level-headed and totally in control of herself. She's easy to connect with and easy to like. When the two of them are thrown together by unexpected circumstances, they think they know each other, but in truth, they don't. Embarking on a scavenger hunt created by Kayla's deceased father in order to receive a shared inheritance, they discover the reality of each others situations and it brings them together in a way that neither one of them anticipated.

I've now read all three books in this series and loved each and everyone of them.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
