Summary

Legend has it, the man you kiss at a wedding is the man you’ll marry. In my case, it’s nothing but trouble.

Spencer Carrollton is a dark-haired, hazel-eyed beast.

When I collided with him at my cousin’s wedding, I wasn’t looking for love. But his naughty eyes flashed, his full lips curled into a knowing smile, and I should have run.

I didn’t. I kissed him instead.

Then he gave me a job when I needed it the most.

I never get involved with clients, but Spencer Carrollton is wickedly handsome in a bespoke suit. He’s devastatingly sexy out of it. He’s possessive, demanding, and the best sex I’ve ever had. He’s an arrogant billionaire who thinks I’ll fall at his feet, but I’m not going down that road again.

Until he pulls me out of danger and insists I move in with him to be safe.

As the nights pass and we grow closer, I know I’m losing this fight.

Spencer Carrollton always gets what he wants.

The trouble is, he wants me.

Trouble is a stand-alone enemies-to-lovers billionaire-boss romance. No cheating. No cliff-hanger.

Intense Spencer

I thought the author’s previous book was good. Well, this one is even better.

I hadn’t seen that much chemistry between two characters in a long time. You feel that Sly and Spencer don’t really like each other at first, but that they experience an irresistible attraction to each other. And the whole book is the story of how they learn to like each other. Seduction, support, understanding, protectiveness… They’ll need to go through all of that–and a couple traumatizing experiences–before they admit their feelings.

There’s been some suspense in This much is true and Twist of fate, but this book takes it to a new level. There’s a real threat at the center of the story right from the beginning, and it’s the catalyst they need to push their relationship further, bit by bit. I felt that the author didn’t really know how to deal with it in the end though.

I loved Spencer as a character. Controlled, cold at the beginning, it was delightful to see how much he’s changed by the end of the story. There’s a lot of passion inside him, that only Joselyn is capable of igniting. And is it ignited! The sexy times will make you fan yourself.

Just know that it is an intense book: intense drama, intense conversations, intense emotions, intense sex. And intense Spencer.

The audiobook was great! Both narrators were perfectly cast, and I loved their child voice. The strong emotions of the story were there. Really one of the best out there!

Excellent Narration!

This is my first audiobook and book by Tia Louise. It is narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Kirsten Leigh who do an excellent job. The narration was smooth and consistent and very enjoyable. This story is a little grumpy sunshine, with some definite Beauty and the Beast inspiration. I struggled a bit with this story, \there was a lot going on, but it didn't feel like enough time was devoted to some things while too much time was devoted to others. I also found it a bit predictable. I think I may have gone in with high expectations because I have heard such great things about Tia Louise but this one fell a little flat. It was a solid story with great narration.

Everyone could use a little trouble!

This was my first audiobook by Tia Louise. Jocelyn & Spencer were hot from the get go! Their chemistry was off the charts. Oh so hot! Spencer swore he didn't want to settle down. Jocelyn proved him wrong! Excellent narration by Teddy Hamilton & Kirsten Leigh (also new to me!)

Wow

I was blown away by this book, the characters were so well developed and described to create characters that I felt I knew. They were flawed and real and I just wanted to talk to them in real life. There is so much going on in this book that was compelling, exciting and I couldn’t stop.

There were times that I felt heartbroken, happy and frustrated while listening to this book. The narration pushed this book from being fantastic to just the very next level. I loved this one and honestly everyone should listen to this book.

So good!!!

First off, I just love Tia Louise. Every book is original and entertaining, and I know I am in for a treat when I turn on the audio. This one is especially good for me, as I love the underlying suspense theme it has! Jocelyn has something to prove to herself. And who better to show her she is desirable than billionaire hottie, Spencer? He has made it clear, he is a one night only man. But when he gets a taste of "Sin", will he be satisfied? This push pull romance is so much fun. Enemies to lovers, these two have witty banter and spice. Jocelyn is a caring, loyal person and she does what she has to to keep her heart safe and try to win Mr. Freeze's heart. Spencer, the protective alpha, shows his true colors throughout, and it gives us those little peeks into his soul where warmth and love are stored. Louise masterfully weaves a thread of suspense into this story that is relevant to current issues and brings realism as well as strength and love. Add in Charmaine the tree frog, and we even have some humor! If you enjoy fantastic, standalone stories, this is a must listen!

Teddy Hamilton and Kirsten Leigh tells us this story with all the feels. Hamilton's voice is smooth and caring. I love his easy going feel, making Spencer feel like I know him. Leigh brings Jocelyn to life with an air of hesitancy, yet you can the feelings are at the edge, so we know exactly what is going on in her heart. These two were wonderful!

💟💟 AN ABSOLUTELY PERFECT LISTEN 💟💟

Oh you’re good Tia.. you completely ransacked my day with this delicious fire and ice tale. It was so damn addictive.. with its strong feisty heroine Jocelyn who was loved supported and gave love and support to her friend through very troubled times. And I loved the journey that the emotionally closed-off Spencer took when his motto of “one and done “ spectacularly backfires because this Billionaire bad boy built some seriously impressive walls after breaking his own code for rounds two.. and three. Strong characters, angsty chemistry-fuelled encounters with barbs and heated banter, a push n pull relationship of one step forward two back and the slow, brick by brick, dismantling of walls built to hide emotions. And the passion, lust, volatile chemistry and sexy times.. delicious.. yup Tia, you absolutely had me invested every step of the way. Then there’s the alternate POV chapters with Teddy and Kirsten breathing life into your well-written storyline giving me some wonderful mental images 😉.

Worth a credit? Absolutely.. there’s fire and ice.. strength, love and compassion.. feels and growth.. good secondary characters and a couple of bad guys.. and drama too. All that’s wrapped-up in a story about a possessive, determined, drool worthy man who hasn’t felt love and doesn’t want it.. and an equally determined woman who doesn’t cower or break when she faces-off with the man she loves. Perfect storytelling.. however, I personally don't think the cover reflects the alpha well-dressed Billionaire in this story.

love me some Spencer!!!

Omg I have been waiting patiently for Spencer's and Jocelyn book and Tia doesn't disappoint you with it either. Spencer's life changed at a very young age and a huge part of it made him the man is today . He doesn't do relationships but Mr. Freeze meets his match with Jocelyn but will she keep going back to him even though she's losing herself more into him? This book will have you on an emotional roller coaster ride and I did laugh a few times but it truly is such a fantastic story. Congratulations on another phenomenal book.
Holy smokes I am such a fan of Teddy Hamilton and his voice is panty melting swoon worthy and Kirsten Leigh does a wonderful job as well. I absolutely love this audiobook ❤❤🥰

Trouble and Sin...

Sly and Spencer are sinfully delicious! Both of them were denying the relationship, but their electric chemistry was zinging off the pages.

I love the underlying Beauty and the Beast references throughout the story. Sin (aka Sly) is a determined female trying to make ends meet while living with her friend and little boy. She's a fierce protector. "This gives new meaning to the phrase 'fiery redhead'." Kirsten Leigh's raspy voice captures Sly's tone and personality perfectly.

Spencer wants to be an aloof jerk but you can see the emotions and care that stir under the surface. They are fighting their pull to each other but in the end, the connection is too strong. Their journey (along with her friend Courtney and Ollie) is captivating. Teddy Hamilton shines as the stoic Spencer.

"This man is the best kind of trouble."

This book captured me from page 1 - another great read by Tia Louise. The audio allows you to enjoy the book all over again but feels fresh with the new medium and and wonderful performances by Teddy Hamilton and Kirsten Leigh!

Didnt finish

I like this author, but this one fell flat for me. Not much substance. I didn’t care for the narration either, it felt forced and a bit cheesy for me. I returned it without finishing.

Lots of hot trouble

Fantastic story that will keep you on your toes. Joselyn hasn't had the best of luck with men and when life throws her a curve she goes to work with Spencer and the hot broody man gets under her skin as well as her sheets but they have a long way to go to find their happily ever after and Sly or Sin as Spencer call her isn't going to let him off easy. This book has the great characters we fell for in some previous books. It is completely a stand alone but we get the added bonus of visiting them again too. There is drama with side characters and danger and we get to watch Spencer thaw out his frozen heart. Great story and great thought out characters.

Teddy Hamilton and Kirsten Leigh are perfect for this book. Teddy brings the growly, broody all sexy male to Spencer and Kristen brings Joselyn's take no stuff, strong female out. They do a great job.

Loved this book and highly recommend it.

Enjoyable story with great narration!

Trouble from Tia Louise is an enjoyable enemies to lovers story! Spencer and Joselyn were a lot of fun to read about - they had a great connection and I enjoyed their story and watching them get their HEA. The story had quite a bit of humor, heat, and hotness that will keep you hooked until the very end. I listened to this one on audio and thought that Teddy Hamilton and Kirsten Leigh did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. Definitely recommend this one!

Heartwarming and Entertaining!

I really love so much about this book! This is my first Tia Louise story and it was awesome! It is definitely going in my favorites list to be listened to over and over. The characters…OMG I loved them both so much! Joselyn is feisty and has amazing jobs! She is smart and knows her own mind. Spenser is an arrogant billionaire with a nickname of Mr. Freeze. He as well has an interesting background and job. These two have wonderful chemistry and they both achieve personal growth.

This secondary characters are so delightful! There are plenty and I loved them all but I do have one that stands out. He made me smile numerous times with his comments and knowledge. He is small but has a large personality. Who is he? Read the story to meet this delightful guy. Wha-ha-ha! (evil laugh)

Overall I couldn't get enough and I was sad when it was over! I enjoyed this so much that I will be checking out other books by this author. I did listen to this on audio. Teddy Hamilton and Kirsten Leigh elevate this story to the next level. They both breathed life into these characters.

Trouble

Trouble An Enemies-to-Lovers, Billionaire Boss Romance (Stand-Alone) intrigued me with its prologue. I needed to find out where the storyline would lead. A lovestory that is spicey with a sprinkle of sweetness to it. A bit of suspense tossled into the mix. Characters are well developed and supported characters are a great mix.

Teddy Hamilton, Kirsten Leigh dual narration performance delivers. Brought the characters and their story to reality. Teddy's inflection is perfectly balanced between characters and passionate voice. Kirsten brought out the emotional side of the characters and her inflection showed off her passionate portray.

Trouble! Yes, please.

What can I say about Trouble other than it’s an amazing story. There’s a bit of everything in this story, a wounded hero, a spicy red head heroine that can hold her own. She’s fiercely independent. Gorgeous and doesn’t put up with nonsense from a cheating ex-boyfriend. Also there’s a funny little boy and the best friend that all women needs, best friends that support each other in the most difficult of circumstances. Spencer and Joselyn’s love story is unique in the most beautiful way. Trouble is a love story that’s full of heart and heat. I highly recommend Trouble.
