The Trouble With Kilts by Kam McKellar

The MacLarens of Balmorie series continues with Kam McKellar’s 3rd contemporary Scottish romance. Jamie is a wounded Highlander with an attitude and Riley is the kind of woman who can't resist a challenge.

Riley Brooks’ life is in a tailspin. With divorce papers shoved into her suitcase, she takes off for a much needed vacation to Scotland to see her cousin Lucy wed Ian MacLaren. Highland romance is in the air, but she wants none of it. Neither does Jamie MacLaren. The Scottish farmer is pissed off and bitter, and wants to be left alone. But when Riley’s ex-husband shows up at the castle to reopen old wounds, misery loves company, and Riley and Jamie join forces with a little Scottish whisky to ease their hurts, and maybe open their hearts…

The Trouble With Kilts is the 3rd in the author’s MacLarens of Balmorie series of humorous, fast-paced, short contemporary romances with a Scottish Highland twist. The full series:

1. Mad About Plaid
2. A Scot Like You
3. The Trouble with Kilts
4. Any Scot of Mine

This was a great fast read to satisfy my highland fix. Riley and Jamie were unbelievably CUTE considering that both are in the worse periods of their lives, one a depressed amputee and the other a recently separated better-off-being-a-widow New Yorker. Their time together developed in the other two installments, but their connection here was hot, funny and pretty heartfelt, especially since it's so short compared to a regular length novel. I never laughed so hard with a short novella and I highly recommend this to anyone who loves romantic comedies with a bit of harsh realities.

This book felt a bit similar to book two. We have Riley, the third cousin, who is facing a really bad break up fell in love with James, the third McLaren brother, who is also healing, but from a bad injury rather than heart ache. I did like very much, though, that this book had some unexpected turns and wasn’t as predictable as the first ones. Plus, I also really enjoyed that this time this two don’t decide to rush everything, but they rather choose to wait. That was a refreshing twist in the series.  It was good to see what had happened with the love stories between the other two pair of cousins and brothers, but it sometimes felt a little forced. Like the author had the pressure to make something big happen between them. Nevertheless, as always, it was an enjoyable read. The story is very fun and had its characteristic wit about it. I liked Riley very much; I think she is my favourite of the three cousins. She always speaks her mind, even if it is not appropriate and is very confident in her, not afraid of taking the matters into her own hands when needed. All in all, I think the Balmorie novellas are always a fun read, because even though you know they’ll end up together, it is very entertaining to see all the amusing situations the characters put their selves into, and how they learn to accept that they have actually fall in love. I definitely want to read the next books in the series. *Note: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, but my opinion was not biased in any way by this fact.

The Trouble With Kilts is the final book in the Balmorie novella series, and I’m sad to say goodbye to the MacLarens and the Walkers. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed their love stories and watching them come full-circle. Riley and Jamie are both hurting. Riley’s marriage has fallen apart, and Jamie has returned from war with both physical and emotional wounds. Both Riley and Jamie are combative and bitter, but they find peace with each other and help each other heal. I liked that this story was a bit different from the other two. All the stories were basically insta-love (they’re romance novellas, after all, you kind of expect the romance to happen fast), but this one followed a different formula from the first two, which I appreciated. It wasn’t love at first sight for Riley and Jamie - they barely wanted to be in the same room at first - and I loved watching them warm to each other and slowly realize that they would be perfect for each other. Like Dev in A Scot Like You, Jamie had a vulnerable side, which I loved. He was this big, strong guy, a hard worker and someone who seemed really tough, so when he showed those cracks in his armour, it melted my heart and made me fall for him even more. I thought he and Riley were a great match for so many reasons. The Trouble With Kilts is funny, romantic, sexy, and sweet. Getting to see all the MacLarens and all the Walkers happy was really heartwarming. I don’t know how anyone could read this series and not fall in love with these swoony Scots.
