REVIEW : Trouble by Adriana Locke


With his shameless grin and let’s-play swagger, carpenter Penn Etling leaves women wanting in Dogwood Lane. What do they get? Avery Perry knows: a one-night stand. She’s been there. She remembers every hot pulse as if it were yesterday. But Penn? He doesn’t remember a thing. Now he’s making new moves, and Avery’s not falling for trouble…again. Is she?

How could the beautiful stranger resist him? Avery is going to be a challenge for the bad boy. She’s the kind of woman who digs deep—deep enough to see there’s more to Penn than meets the eye. But first she has to give him a chance. She has to say yes. Could she also be the woman to make him change his playboy ways?

When these two come together, it’s hard to pull them apart. But with love and trust on the line, can Avery and Penn get what they both want? This time for keeps?

People who are ridiculously attracted to one another can be friends….right?


PENN! I have been impatiently waiting for his story since the moment we met him. The title fits the man, too. He is 100% pure trouble and you can’t help be love the man.

Penn is easily my favorite Dogwood Lane resident. He is confident and everything he says has had me laughing throughout the series. Avery is new to Dogwood Lane moving their after escaping a life she wasn’t happy with in LA. The moment she see’s Penn, she recognized him immediately as the man she met 10 years prior and had a night she would never forget….Penn, however, doesn’t remember that night but is drawn to Avery.

They start as friends but the chemistry quickly sizzles between them and feelings start to shift. However, Avery continues to fight. Though, you can only fight for so long. Penn, I can’t help but love him. Trouble shed a whole new light on him and it only makes him more loveable.

This is the third book in a series, however, each book can be read as a complete standalone. Trouble was worth the wait and is a MUST READ!
