Overview

The Troublemaker by Lili Valente

They say Rafe Hunter is trouble with a capital T.

I say--bring it on.

As long as Trouble comes in a package as delicious as Rafe's, I'm ready to climb on his Harley and ride all night long--and I'm not just talking about his motorcycle.

I can hide out until the scandal with my evil ex blows over AND have a wild rebound at the same time. Besides, I've got no heart left to break. My ex made sure of that.

As long as Rafe and I keep our no-strings fling from our families, what can possibly go wrong?

***
This is so damned wrong.

I don't do drama, and this thing with Carrie Haverford has Bad News written all over it. After one red-hot kiss, I know I should cut and run.

Instead I take her home, take her in her car, take her to the beach and make her scream louder than the crashing waves. And then I take her so far into my heart I don't see how I'm ever going to let her go.

They say the bigger and badder they are, the harder they fall. But when I fall for a girl with third degree love burns, how can I convince her that fire is a good thing?

This sexy Standalone romance will make you laugh, melt, and fall madly in love.

I enjoyed the story and the characters were engaging; however, I grew tired of the MANY sex scenes. I don't mind a sex scene here and there if it's needed in the story, but this story had an explicit sex scene pretty much in every chapter. It became annoying and I started skipping those pages. Maybe Dylan's story will have more story and less sex.

Totally loved this story. So sweet. It had quite a bit of raunchy sex in it but that made the character's personalities shine. Fun and enjoyable read.

Rafe Hunter and Carrie Haverford are both trouble, in one form or another. They’re also related by marriage, which makes their white hot attraction to each other something they have to resist. But when Carrie needs a place to crash to avoid dealing with her mother, will they be able to hide their feelings? Will these two rebels find a way to be rebelliously in love with each other? This is a sexy story that is guaranteed to make you laugh, get you hot, and make you melt. I loved it!

Laughter and fun under a sizzling cover that speaks of what is to come…. I was in desperate of a rom-com escape and I quickly got lost in Rafe and Carrie’s romance! When love is good, it is great but when it is bad, watch out… Carrie is experiencing the down side in spades, laying low and trying to recover from a blow to her career that came out of left field. Thank goodness for Rafe… Likeable. Lickable. Yeah, Rafe is both those things and so much more. He is sexy personified with a personality that is just as beautiful. He becomes more than a welcome distraction as the instant attraction between him and Carrie ignites a flirty and fun courtship that leads to, forever? “You hate weddings, too?” “Like carpet burns on my a**…” Their humour and sizzle was like a heated balm on winter day. Their conversations, their warmth and irreverent conversations, made me smile and laugh through their rollicking courtship. New word of the day: “Bang-a-Pa-Looza” Hit my Canuck funny bone: “Don’t put that on Canada, babe.. They don’t deserve this…” I couldn’t wait to finish, so I could start over from the beginning, enjoying one more laugh, one more hug for my heart. That will keep me busy while I wait for Tristan’s story… Though, honestly, I’m ready right now! **I voluntarily, happily, reviewed this story…

Another phantasmagorical story from Lili Valente. From virtual cover to cover, The Trouble Maker is absolutely magical and will leave you smiling with pure contentment as well as capture your heart. From the moment Carrie and Rafe meet, the sexual heat and connection speaks volumes to them both. But they both agree a relationship is out of the question since they are technically family because her sister and his brother are married and they are sure there are rules against it. But the sexual tension and playful exchanges make them both feel a deep connection they’ve never before experienced. But Carrie is running from trouble created by her ex who is seeking revenge. And they both are guarding their hearts and keeping walls erected to keep them safe. But when unadulterated passion overtakes them both, will they finally be able to allow their protective barriers to fall and let their hearts be overtaken by a love they both deserve to share together? I fell in love with Rafe and Carrie immediately. And in typical Lili Valente style, the sarcasm and comical banter they share throughout this novel were entertaining and so much fun to read. Once again, Ms. Valente has created a enchanting couple whose sexual escapades and to-the-depths-of-their souls love left me spellbound and definitely wanting more. The Trouble Maker can be read as a stand-alone, but Rafe and Carrie are siblings to the characters in The Baby Maker. So if you haven’t had a chance to read that story, I would highly recommend it as well. And remember keep an eye out for Rafe’s brother, Tristan’s story. It’s gonna be a fantastic one.

4.5 Stars This book is just what I needed to read. It's light and funny with plenty of heat. Rafe and Carrie are great together. They have chemistry just pouring off them. Life is kicking Carrie's butt at the moment and Rafe provides the perfect distraction. What happens when two people who don't do relationships start developing feelings? Read this book and find out! I was really happy with how Rafe and Carrie's story ended. Made my heart happy sigh. I also liked the set up for the next book in the series.

The Troublemaker by Lili Valente is funny, romantic, hot and oh so sweet. Rafe and Carrie are the black sheeps of their families. Rafe is Dylan's brother and Carrie is Emma's sister from The Baby Maker. Rafe and Carrie don't believe in "Happily Ever After." They both have their baggages. Carrie is getting over the betrayal of her ex, and Rafe just doesn't believe in anything more than a good time. They know getting involved is a "BAD IDEA", but when have these two ever played it safe. Rafe can't deny that Carrie pulls at his heart strings. He wants to make her feel better, bring a smile to her face. He can do that without getting her in sack, right? Carrie has this crazy attraction to Dylan, and he makes her feel safe even though she doesn't know him long. One night under the tent is all it takes for these two to know that what they have isn't just scratching an itch. What started off as one comforting another, having a good time, turns into a love story like no other. Lili Valente never disappoints. The sizzling attraction between Carrie and Rafe is off the tracts. If your looking for a story with a hot mouthed biker with a heart of gold and a strong, wild, rebellious goddess then The Troublemaker is the book for you.

Trouble with a capital T! LOVED IT! Oh man - I so love this series and these Hunter men! I have a feeling I'll love each one more than the last. It's hard to say whose more trouble in this one - Rafe or Carrie. This starts out as a sort-of forbidden romance and the fort of silence is a brilliant premise. The romance develops in a sweet, steamy way and Rafe is just too yummy for words. This has all the wit you expect from a Lili Valente story and it's such a fun book to read! i wish there had been a little more before the end, but still an excellent read overall. And oh - I can't wait for Book 3!! While you don't have to - definitely start with Book 1 as this is a series not to be missed. So much heat, wit, humor, romance, and love! I voluntarily read and requested an advance reader copy.

Carrie Haverford goes through life at the beat of her own drum. She writes books for school age children and has a very successful career. She has the tips of her hair dyed purple and she wears combat boots. She is staying at her sister Emma’s home for her wedding to the handsome Dylan Hunter. Carrie is trying to lay low from an incident that happened when she was a guest speaker at a middle school recently and live in the guest house until she figures out what to do from this point. Along comes the devilishly hot Rafe Hunter, Dylan’s brother that lives on the wild side of life as well. He owns his own motorcycle repair business and lives life to the fullest with no intention of getting tied down to one woman. He is happy for his brother but it’s just not for him. Carrie also has the opinion that humans are not meant to be tied to one person so she has no illusions of finding “The One” and settling down. Just when Carrie thinks it can’t get any worse it does so Rafe takes her away from it all and they decide even though it’s a terrible idea since her sister is married to his brother they need a “no strings attached” F buddy. No problems right, if they are both on the same page, neither one wants a relationship beyond the physical so just keep it quiet and all is well in the world. Well life has a funny way of biting us in the backside and that happens to Carrie and Rafe. This is a great book. This follows The Baby Maker which was also a fantastic book. You don’t have to read it first but trust me you will want to. Rafe and Carrie both have deep emotional feelings they keep bottled up and together they are able to heal from past hurts. This is a HOT, funny, passionate book that will make you laugh out loud, have a tear or two and route for this couple to find each other and realize what their future can truly be. I received an early copy to read and review and give my honest opinion. I LOVED IT! Highly recommend it. These Hunter men are so deliciously yummy and the Haverford ladies are independent, smart, hilarious and passionate.

The Troublemaker is the newest romantic comedy from the fantastic Lili Valente. It can be read as a standalone, but if you haven't read The Baby Maker then you need to do that now. If you did, you have met Carrie, Emma's sister and Rafe, Dylan's brother. I already loved Rafe and Carrie and I was excited to hear they were next to get a story. Lili never disappoints me. Ever. When I pick up one of her books, I know I'm going to laugh out loud, tear up, swoon, and fall in love. Rafe is a bad boy, but he's totally sweet. He wanted Carrie the minute he saw her, but she's his sister in law's sister, isn't there a rule about that? Carrie wants one night of sweaty passion with Rafe, but it's a bad, bad idea. Right? They try to resist each other, but they knew that was never going to work. Once they give in, it's on! They are so hot together. They just fit. But Carrie is running from something and she needs to fix it. Rafe is hiding from himself. Can these two let their guards down long enough to find their forever? I loved this story! I'm so glad we didn't have to wait long to get it. The Troublemaker is sexy, funny, sweet and hot. What's better than a dirty mouthed, sweetheart, motorcycle riding hottie? Nothing! Bring on Tristan! "So, this isn't the first time you've heard that you're a superhero from the land of Orgasmia? "Just make sure the ride doesn't end in her pants." "That' doesn't even make sense." "Seriously, what's wrong with you? How are the reigning Sex King of Sonoma County when you say stuff like that? "Standards are low around here?"
