Trouble by Samantha Towle

Mia Monroe is running. Running from a person she doesn’t ever want to find her. Running from a past she doesn’t ever want anyone to know. Desperate to find a future, that yesterday, she could only dream of having. 

Jordan Matthews likes easy. Easy women. Easy life. 

Then he meets Mia. 

She’s damaged, troubled and has more baggage than any person can carry. But the more Jordan gets to know Mia-for the first time in his life-he finds himself wanting to try hard for something … for someone … for her.

And then life isn’t so easy anymore. 

Jordan is everything Mia shouldn’t want. A whole bunch of dirty hotness, tattooed, cocky bad boy, who made his money at poker tables and picked his women up in bars. Yet, Mia finds herself falling for him. Then the past Mia was running from, quickly starts to catch up with her. Because that’s the problem with running … you have to stop sometime. 

And when you stop, you get caught.

It’s easy to be worthless to someone, but to matter to someone…well, I think would be harder. 

Wow. This was a nice surprise. I had this on my TBR, but was waiting to read it. However, after the urging of my one of most trusted book friends, I picked this up. I figured I was in for another angsty ride that involved a damaged heroine and an Alpha Hero. Nope. I was completely off. It wasn’t typical by any means and the story was much more than that. 

The story starts out pretty dark, but no worries, it doesn’t stay that way. When we first meet Mia, her physically and mentally abusive father just passed away. His passing brought her relief and freedom, but that freedom was short lived. She didn’t know it at the time, but when she started up a relationship with her first boyfriend, Forbes, she didn’t know what laid underneath his perfect exterior. Once his abuse started, she didn’t know how to escape. In fact, her fucked up brain convinced her that she was use to this behavior, so she endured it, until he crossed an even more unforgivable line. 

She had had enough and she fled. While on the road, she kept thinking about her life and especially about her mother. She recently found out she’s alive and wondered why she left her with her monster of a father. Her path lead her to the town she was last known to have lived. It’s in this town, and in it’s hotel, is where she met Jordan Matthews. 

She’s fucking amazing.
Everything I didn’t know I was looking for. 
I know I’m fucked. She has me now. If there were ever a chance of me going back after this one taste of her, it’s gone.
I’m gone for her. 

Mia instantly enamored Jordan. He didn’t know what to make of her, but what he knew is that he had never been struck like this before. Frightened it might be more, he initially thought it was just lust. Unfortunately, the more he got to know his little hotel guest, he realized it was much more. 

Everything about him screams male.
He looks like sin.
Like hot, dirty, incredible sex. 

Just what Mia needed: Another male in her life. She has every right to be leery about men, especially one that looks like Jordan. I mean, she’s been fooled before. But we both know there will be no denying their immediate chemistry. They keep trying to deny what they have, but how long can they keep up the charade? And what will happen when Mia’s past refuses to stay in the past?

I’d spent so long believing I was a bad person. And I couldn’t see beyond that, until her.
Sometimes that’s all it takes. Just one person to turn everything on its head. Remind you of the person you were.
Mia makes me want to be the person I was before all the shit. 

This was such an excellent read. Jordan reminded me a lot of my favorite book boyfriends with a touch of Alpha hotness. He wasn’t overpowering, but more along the lines of overwhelming sweet. Does that make sense? Also, how could I not love a man who loves to talk to his adorable dog Dozer? Some of my favorite scenes involved those Jordan and his dog. I just loved those two. 

Oh before I go, I have to mention a few more things:
One. Fans of Colleen Hoover’s Hopeless will absolutely love this. There was a bit of twist that I did NOT see coming plus Jordan reminded me a lot of Holder, which is NEVER a bad a thing. 
Two. Surprisingly the heroine did not annoy me at all. When I first read the synopsis, I was worried that the heroine would be stubborn or hard headed. Nope. I actually like her and was rooting for her happiness. 
Three. The beginning of the book is a bit dark, with snippets of abuse, but please don’t let that put you off. This is very much a worthwhile read.
