4.5 stars!

An office romance with the added brother's best friend forbidden element plus an age gap?!…YESSSS! I absolutely devoured this book!! Claire Contreras hooked me in from the very first page.

The Trouble with Love is definitely lighter than some of this author's other books. However, I enjoyed that it still dealt with some serious issues like infidelity, addiction and family dynamics. What it lacked (and I say lacked with no negative connotation behind it) in emotion it more than made up for it in banter, sexual tension and character chemistry. My goodness! The connection between Bennett and Morgan was insane. From the beginning, their back and forth was addictive and fun. I genuinely really liked these characters. Morgan is smart and independent and I just loved her determination. And Bennett…sigh. There's a part of me says I shouldn't fall for him because of his questionable actions but I couldn't help it. He's pretty freakin' dreamy.

This book is light-hearted, sexy and fun. I loved it and I highly recommend it!!

I really enjoyed Bennett and Morgan’s story. I was instantly enthralled in this book. Claire’s writing is phenomenal and gets better with each book she writes! This is the perfect summer/beach book!!

Loved this. Coworkers & brothers best friend (though it’s never really a thing). Two people who have been burned by their cheating significant others in the past find true love.

I really enjoy a sweet and steamy story in audiobook and Claire Contreras once again delivered exactly what I like. This was the perfect companion for work and mom life. The storyline was not overly complicated, but I enjoyed how the romance developed and the journey to the HEA. The only thing I wished the story had explored more was Morgan’s past. It is alluded to several times but we don’t really get resolution for some of the horrible things she survived in her past. Overall this was a really enjoyable read that stays quite lighthearted despite questionable things in the heroine’s past.

Morgan is an app developer fresh out of college hoping to land her dream job. Everything seems to be going well until reality crashes in. She had a one night stand one night after being stood up on her birthday. On her first day on the job, she quickly realizes that her one night stand is also her boss and brother’s best friend. Their chemistry is still off the charts but now they have to work together.

A workplace romance is one of my favorite tropes so I was 100% ready for this read and while there wasn’t any spicy office action, it was a steamy, romantic story. I really liked both characters and how their story evolved. The narration was superb, which is unsurprising with Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose. I always enjoy both narrators and this audiobook was no exception.

I have conflicting thoughts on this book. It was a cute, sexy read. There were some swoon worthy moments. Sometimes I just felt confused. Some stuff didn’t add up. I know some of the characters were from The Consequences of Falling. I felt like there were other side characters that I should know who they are. Are they from another book? This book is supposed to be a stand-alone. Several times I was scratching my head. I know I would appreciate the story more of I had more background on who they were.

I voluntarily read an early copy.
