Finder Fees (A TroubleMaker Novel) by Kelly Gendron

"When you find her, there are a few things you need to remember. She's smart and manipulative. She knows how to protect herself. She's beautiful and she'll use it to her advantage. But, Mr. Renton, the most important thing to remember... is that she's mine."



J.T. Renton is worth millions. He wants for nothing. When he finds Sloan Mathis, he has to have her. Problem is she belongs to another, and J.T.'s not about taking another guy's girl. But the idea that he can't have her. Well, it just makes the challenge driven, J.T. Renton want his latest find that much more.



Finder Fees ~ A TroubleMaker Novel

J.T. Renton is what you might call a Finder. But the one thing this former bounty hunter no longer finds is people. That is until he's offered a finder fee he just can't resist. What J.T. doesn't know is his latest find comes with a hidden fee, one that could end up costing J.T. his well-guarded heart.


Sloan Mathis is on the run from her dangerous ex. So when she encounters J.T. Renton, it takes her a second to realize the arrogant, sexy, and oh-so-frustrating Finder has actually mistaken Sloan for her twin sister. And to uncover what's going on with her gone missing sister, Sloan lets J.T. believe that he's found what he's been looking for.??

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. While I have not read any of the other books in this series, this one works fine as a stand-alone. That said, I will be reading the rest since I want to find out more about the other characters. JT and Sloane's interactions were funny and hot and very entertaining.

Finder Fees in the 4th book in the TroubleMaker series. However, each book can be read as a standalone. This was my first read by Kelly Gendron and let me tell you…I’ll be headed back to the beginning of the series to read them all!  This book was fun and fast paced. I was never bored, not for one second. When I reached the last pages, I was shocked to have arrived there so quickly! I just couldn’t put it down.  J.T. and Sloane start off in a tricky situation, particularly because J.T. thinks that Sloane is her twin sister Max and that she belongs to another man. Their chemistry burns right through the pages of the book! Holy smokes it’s hot!!! What I really loved however, was that once J.T. discovers that Sloane is not taken, his desire for her only gets stronger. There wasn’t any element of “wanting what you can’t have.”  Sloane is a really fun character. She is guarded, with good reason, and determined to keep her heart protected. Despite her past and history of being used by guys, she has retained a strong sense of self. I loved that about her, that she didn’t let it tear her down very far. She still battles with her insecurities throughout the book, but one of the best parts was watching her overcome them, little by little. She is strong, determined, and fiercely loyal.  She determines to be a complete pain in the ass to J.T. and she absolutely delivers. Their banter was very amusing and even had me chuckling out loud from time to time.  J.T… Oh that man. I was all kinds of hot and bothered with his alpha ways. I thought it was unique that the author gave J.T.’s character an open acceptance of his alpha ways. The way he described an alpha’s need and ability to “brand” their woman and make sure that every single little part of her knows she belongs to him, was sexy as hell. He is completely aware of his caveman instincts and cocky enough to know what a turn on it is. Often, the author is all about show, rather than tell with this type of hero.  Get out the ice and turn the temp down on your air conditioner before you read this. J.T. will melt your panties right off! I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read more from this author. If you’re a fan of feisty women, bossy, domineering, and incredibly sexy men, you’ll love this book!

Ms. Gendron certainly knows how to write an alpha male that makes me swoon. J.T. is arrogant, confident and cocky and all are well-earned characteristics. His persistence has made him successful at what he does … finding things. Between that and the fact that he is worth millions, he is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it; fortunately he does it without an air of entitlement, so much like Sloan, I was drawn to him immediately. However, as the story progresses and we learn more about J.T., it was easy to understand why Sloan was doomed from the beginning – especially when he breaks out the alpha male claiming his female explanation or when he gets all growly. In a word, SEXY! As for Sloan, I just gotta say she was awesome. The family loyalty among this clan is amazing. When faced with a rather intimidating J.T., her concern for her twin sister, Max, has Sloan holding her tongue and letting him think he’s found the right person so that she can meet Max’s boyfriend and figure out why her sister is missing. I enjoyed the back and forth between J.T. and Sloan. As much as he wanted her, he refused to cross that line because she belonged to someone else. Sloan’s last boyfriend has left her raw, so she refuses to acknowledge any possibility with J.T. Once J.T. learns that Sloan is not Max and Sloan is not spoken for, all bets are off and he intends to claim her as his own, something he never expected to happen. It is this aspect of the story that I truly appreciated. J.T. and Sloan had an instant attraction – one they both fought – but never did they pretend it was love, rather they acknowledged it for the physical attraction that it was. Even as the relationship progressed quickly, they didn’t fall into the insta-love that is so prevalent in novels lately – it was still attraction with an added aspect of caring for the other. When J.T. laid his claim on Sloan, it was just that – super hot sex marking her as his and vice versa, but still no words of undying love were uttered. Yet as they spent more time together and incidents forced them to face a life without the other in it, they realized that their feelings had progressed to those of love. While it was quick considering the timeline of the book, it wasn’t instant and it was consistent with Sloan’s family’s history of falling hard when they do fall.  The main factor that tips a book from a 4-star rating to a 5-star rating for me is whether or not I think I will reread the book and Finder Fees has definitely hit that mark. That I still need to go back and read books 1 & 2, which will lead to a reread of Lucky Numbers merely increases the likelihood of it happening, especially with Fallon’s book being released next. Thank you Ms. Gendron for sharing another enjoyable book in the TroubleMaker series.  I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

A fun, sexy action packed read! JT Renton is a finder and is hired to find a woman that belongs to someone else. The only problem is when he finders her he is instantly attracted and wants her for himself. JT is shocked to learn he found the wrong woman. Instead of find Max he found her twin sister Sloan. After hearing that, the only thing he can thing about is making Sloan his and saving her from the danger she is in. JT is hot and sexy a wonderful Alpha, I loved him. This is an excellent series and this can be read as a standalone but I did enjoy them all. I couldn’t put it down great characters and an exciting plot.

4.5  Sizzling Stars - Love Kelly Gendron and her TroubleMakers! Favorite Quotes: “But I’m not sure there’s such a thing as a perfect guy.  In my experience, I certainly haven’t found one.  I seem to attract the severely flawed and mentally deranged.”   “I can’t let another guy just come in and sweep me off my feet, only to drop me back down on my ass after he gets what he wants.  I’ve had that problem since I was eight, when Jimmy Buttons asked to be my boyfriend just so he could sit with me at lunch and have some of Grandma Mora’s blue-ribbon pie.” My Review: This is my second Kelly Gendron book and it won’t be my last, I adore her stories and quirky characters.  She writes about “TroubleMakers” but they generally turn out to be trouble-finders and trouble-fixers if you ask me.  Her books are a connected series, yet each is stand-alone, so no sucky cliffhangers – yay!  Her characters personalities are generally a bit edgy - but are lovable and good hearted, and while considerably flawed and feel themselves beyond hope – they are always redeemable and comprised of a soft center - once we get beyond their hard, and usually heavily tattooed, shells.  The men are always cut, handsome, tatted, multi-taskers, smokin’ hot, and well experienced alpha males that sport ample “trouser meat.”  The writing is witty, clever, easy to follow, and flavored with hot and tasty spices.  Yum – mee!  I could live on a steady diet of that alone.

sloan and JT's story was realy good. I loved that this story was different than most of the other stories out now. sloan was such a strong character and matched JT's alpha ways. Kelly storytelling is always good and this was no exception.

While this was a quick read for me, I did find my mind would wander from time to time. Not because of the story, I found the storyline to be interesting...and the characters were nicely developed. I think part of it was due to the insta-love factor and JT's overly alpha personality in relation to that insta-love. This is just one of my things-I just personally have a hard time with insta-love in anything other than a paranormal book. There's some good suspense and action, and I really liked Sloan's feisty character. JT at times felt a bit too alpha, a bit too cocky...but other than that he's pretty swoon-worthy ;-) A good premise, good writing, strong characters...and the little stories at the end (including the full backstory on JT's original finder fee for locating Max) make this a 4-star read for me. Thanks to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review!

Enjoyed it big time! Here we have JT who is a finder and his payment to find Max is something he has been looking for for years... An item that he wants to find to right a wrong. When he finds Max, it turns out to be her twin sister Sloan but she does not tell him. Boy do the sparks start to fly. He fights the attraction until he finds out her true identity... then nothing stops him. When Sloan's past comes back to haunt her, JT does all he can to protect her. Even though both feel that they can not love... neither can fight the feelings that grow. This is the first book by Kelly Gendron that I have read and now I am really looking forward to more! I loved the interactions between the characters. They had me smiling and snickering. Wonderful secondary characters added to their story. What a great read! Had me turning page after page! Definitely want to see more in this series!

This is the 2nd book I've read in this series, and just like Lucky Numbers, I loved it. This one is about Sloan and J.T. It's insta-love, but there is still sexual tension. Besides the romance, there is a little mystery and some action too. I love all the characters in this series, and I can't wait for Fallon's book. After reading Lucky Numbers, I immediately one-clicked the first 2 books in the series. All of these books can be read as standalones.

Ms. Gendron's TroubleMaker series continues with this fourth installment that's another delightful addition to the series. With its engaging main couple and compelling mix of mystery and romance it's easy to get caught up in the action both in and out of the bedroom. Though it's part of a series it can easily stand on its own but you'll quickly fall for the sexy and strong-willed men whose brief appearances make a lasting impression. J.T. is a smart and sexy man good at finding things who wants for nothing, except the one item that's alluded him for years. When an opportunity arises to finally get this object he jumps at the chance and sets out in search of a woman on the run. He's instantly attracted to her photo but seeing her in person affects him even more. He's ordered to keep his hands off her which leads to unrelenting sexual tension. Little does he know though that he's actually caught the woman's twin sister which makes things even more interesting for him. Being with Sloan brings out his protective instincts. He's an intense man with things in his past that made me ache for him and that make him endearing. He's drool-worthy and has a sexy way with words that make him an unexpected hero. Sloan may have bad luck with men but she's a delightful heroine with her spunky nature and tendency to give as good as she gets. She's outspoken and her interactions with J.T. crackle because of it. She may be down on her luck but she hasn't let it break her. She's been on the run with nothing but the clothes on her back before her cousin gave her a job. Being a masseuse is her dream job but what's supposed to be an easy appointment changes her life irrevocably. Once she sets eyes on J.T. she definitely wants to put her hands on him despite her negative feelings about men. Theirs isn't going to be an easy relationship though as their pasts interfere with their future and Sloan's loyalty to her sister draw her closer to danger. This was a fast-paced read with great flow that had me fully immersed from page one. The main couple have crackling sexual compatibility that leads to lots of witty banter teeming with sexual tension. The blend of romance with a touch of mystery keep you on edge and deepens the connection between J.T. and Sloan. All-in-all this was an entertaining read that stands strongly on its own but leaves you wanting to read the other installments if you haven't already.

This is the fourth book in the Troublemakers series. I’ve read all of the others, and each one is fabulous in its own right. I highly recommend them. In Finder Fees, Sloan Mathis is trying to hide from an ex-boyfriend after seeing something she probably shouldn’t have. She leaves everything behind and goes to visit her cousin Lucky at his tattoo shop where she helps him out while she also gives massages, a business she’s passionate about. But she also needs to figure out what to do to get out the pickle she’s in. Unfortunately, her latest client doesn’t want a massage; he wants her--only, not really. But because her sister seems to be missing, Sloan is willing to do anything to find her. JT Renton is a rich man who spends his time finding things. He loves the challenge. He does it simply to return these items, or people, to their rightful owners. And right now his biggest goal is to find a very special bracelet. When he’s hired to find Max, who can apparently lead him to the bracelet, he doesn’t realize he’s actually found Max’s twin sister, Sloan. The attraction between them is instant and hot. JT hasn’t received his fee yet, but he’s currently more concerned about not losing Sloan. JT knows there’s something special about this woman, and he’s not ready to let her walk away. I loved these characters. As always Ms. Gendron's characters come alive off they page. They are fun, snarky, spontaneous and deeply loyal. Neither of them back down from a difficult situation. Sloan is very protective of her sister. JTThis is the fourth book in the Troublemakers series. I’ve read all of the others, and each one is fabulous in its own right. I highly recommend them.

It makes for an interesting involvement between two people who are like night and day and a fun read. I can’t wait for the next story in this series. Each book can be read alone, but there are characters that cross each story. I give this one 4 stars and highly recommend you read the others. **A copy of the book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review ** A copy of the book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**

I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. “When you find her, there are a few things you need to remember. She’s smart and manipulative. She knows how to protect herself. She’s beautiful and she’ll use it to her advantage. But, Mr. Renton, the most important thing to remember… is that she’s mine.” That sentence alone tells you everything you need to know about this book. The main female character isn't going to be a pushover and I love that. The main male character is going to want her because if someone  tells you that you can't have something it makes you want it that much more. Finder Fees had me hooked with the first sentence. I knew I would enjoy it but I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would.

This is the first book I’ve read in this series, each can be read as stand alone, just be aware that some of the other characters do appear. J.T. used to be a bounty hunter, now he is just a finder, you want something or someone found he’s the man for the job. His latest assignment is to find Max, she can lead him to a bracelet he has been looking for some time. He finds her but it turns out it’s not Max, but her twin sister Sloan. She fights the attraction to him after spending some days together, but once misunderstands come to light, they both given in and believe me their chemistry is undeniable, the tension just sizzles off the pages. It was such an entertaining story, I laughed and admit to shedding a tear or two, they are both extraordinary characters that will stay with me for a very long time. Does J.T. get the bracelet back and why has he spent so much time looking for it? Will Sloan be able to trust another man? Give this book a try and you will get a feisty heroine and a very alpha male. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Funny, clever, smart and oh so sexy … J.T. never knew what hit him when he met Sloan. J.T. leads an orderly life and Sloan can't commit to anything. When these two head strong personalities cross, the sparks fly and we get to go along for the ride. J.T. finds things for people but he never expected to find the woman of his dreams when his friend Jack sent him in search of Max which put J.T. directly in Sloan's orbit. What J.T. doesn't know is that Sloan is in more trouble than even she realizes. As Max works to solve the mystery she enlists J.T. to keep Sloan safe. Will J.T. be able to open up and let Sloan behind his barriers? Can Sloan find it in herself to commit to someone? What a fun and fabulous journey that had me laughing, crying and out right sighing!

This is the fourth book in the Troublemakers series and it is my favorite so far. Sloan Mathis is working with her cousin Lucky at his tattoo shop and also giving massages. When she gets a request for a message, she goes to the hotel thinking that is will be an older, overweight man. What she sees when the hotel room door is opened has her body coming alive. J.T. Renton is not what she was expecting. And what he really wanted was Max, Sloan's twin sister. But J.T. doesn't know that Max has a twin. He has never had his body react to a woman as he is reacting to Sloan. But he thinks that Sloan is Max and belongs to Jack, so he doesn't push her for more. Boy is J.T. in for a big surprise. Will Sloan run from J.T. when she finds out what he is after? Will Jack get what he is after or will he get more than he planned on? This story is great and will have you glued to each page until the end. I loved it and can't wait for book 5 Fallon's story. Each of these stories are about a group of cousins and can be read as a stand-alone or read the series. You will not be disappointed.  **Copy provided by the author in exchange for my honest review**
