Synopsis:
She has complete control… and he's determined to take it away

A librarian in the small town of Hood River, Natalie Clayton's world is very nearly perfect. After a turbulent childhood and her once-wild ways, life is now under control. But trouble has a way of turning up unexpectedly—especially in the tall, charismatically sexy form of Paddy Hurley….

And Paddy is the kind of trouble that Natalie has a taste for.

Even after years of the rock and roll lifestyle, Paddy never forgot the two wickedly hot weeks he once shared with Natalie. Now he wants more… even if it means tempting Natalie and her iron-grip control. But there's a fine line between well-behaved and misbehaved—and the only compromise is between the sheets!

The Best Kind of Trouble (The Hurley Boys, #1)My Review:
The Best Kind of Trouble by Lauren Dane

Paddy and Natalie had a past but when their worlds collide once more their lives are at much different places. Paddy and Natalie’s “hook up” was a two week affair while Natalie was still running wild and Paddy was a rock star. Natalie was the one girl he couldn’t forget. When he runs into her at the coffee shop in his hometown Natalie plays it off like she doesn’t know who he is. Intrigued Paddy pursues Natalie and discovers she has built a new life for herself as the town librarian leaving the party girl behind.

The attraction from years gone by hasn’t diminished and grows fast and furriest. But when Paddy must return to touring, it puts an unexpected pull on their newly established relationship…”Pushing Buttons”.

I really enjoyed The Best Kind of Trouble. I did find it a bit repetitive; I don’t think so many people would have referred to personal issues as buttons. But boy did Natalie and Paddy both had their buttons.

Natalie was a strong woman, a woman that could stand on her own two feet and not need someone to pull her along but she had some major family issues.

Paddy was a great family guy, so when Natalie finally ran to him for help his reaction seemed out of character and didn’t work for me.

The romance was fun with just the right amount of sizzle to get your pulse going. In the end, I give The Best Kind of Trouble 3.5 Stars for being an enjoyable and entertaining read.
