5 Shiny Stars!

"It's easy to be worthless to someone, but to matter to someone...well, I think that would be harder." ~ Mia ~

I adore Samantha Towle, I adored the Mighty Storm, and Wethering the Storm. If you are picking this one up thinking it will be like these books, be warned, this one is very different. Sure you have the smokin' hot, sexy main characters, but this is where the similarities end.

We begin this book in a very strange and dark place. Mia has just lost her only parent, heart attack. Devastating right? Nope this is a reason to truly celebrate, in Mia's unfortunate case. You see Mia has been keeping secrets and hiding her pain away since before she can remember. On the surface Mia is a beautiful, intelligent, well mannered young woman. She is attending Harvard and is working towards becoming a doctor, first year pre-med to be exact. But looks can be deceiving. Mia is in a very bad place, both emotionally and physically. When her father passes away, Mia is forced to face the truth. Even though she has a boyfriend Forbes, (don't even get me started on this guy), she is truly alone in this world. A startling revelation turns her world upside down, and her journey begins anew. Mia finds the strength within, to break free. Finally willing and able to break the cycle that has crippled her her entire life.

"I do believe that everyone has a pain and a coping ability that is individual to them, and if you want to feel sorry for yourself because of the hand life dealt you, then that's your god given right - I won't judge you for that." ~ Mia ~

Enter Jordan (Tattooed Adonis). This man, Holy Hot Batman! Bad boy, sexier then sin, mad skills in the bedroom, covered in tats. Everything a woman could ever want and need right? Well only if you are into being short term. Jordan is a love' em and leave' em type of guy.

"When it comes to women, I put my dick in and keep my heart out. It's the easiest way." ~ Jordan ~

He has never in his entire life been in a relationship, never even been on a date. When he meets Mia, everything he thinks he knows about himself, and love begins to shift.

"Sometimes that's all it takes. Just one person to turn everything on its head. Remind you of the person you were" ~ Jordan ~

"I love you, Mia. Every part of you. The best and worst. The broken, the perfect. The bad, the good. You're it for me babe. I see only you."
~ Jordan~

OMG, swoon much here, ladies??

The love story that unfolds in Trouble will melt your heart, make you swoon, make you cry. It is a story that will give you hope, that even though you are broken, you are not unfix-able. Trauma and sickness can be overcome. Truly healing and moving forward is possible. Even the most terrifying nightmares can be forgotten.

"Pain of the past never goes away, you just find a way to deal with it. And the future...all the promise it holds...that's what keeps you moving forward, and out of the darkness." ~ Mia ~

This book delves into some pretty heavy issues, abuse, eating disorders, rape, death, love, however Samantha Towle handled the subject matter beautifully. She balances the horrific with the beautiful. The abuse scenes are painful and difficult to read, but they truly touch you as a reader. Mia's pain and heartbreak were mine as well, and I found myself misty eyed more than once while reading Trouble. I found myself totally engrossed in this book. I love stories of redemption, love, and healing.  I adore a story where you are rooting for the underdog, Mia was an underdog from page one.

This book was a little bit of everything, but a whole lot of Beautiful. I will revisit this one again and again. I fell completely in love with Jordan, Mia, and Dozer. I cannot recommend this book enough. Trouble is beautiful, heart breaking, and fantastic.
