“Victoria Dahl is quite the master when it comes to writing sexy scenes.” ~ Under the Covers
Looking For Trouble is another great read from Victoria Dahl. While the prequel was good, this first full length installment was even better. It’s filled with drama, scandal yet it was sweet, romantic and there was a whole lot of hotness. Ms. Dahl really cranked up the heat on this one.
Alex Bishop is the prodigal son, coming back to the old town of Jackson Hole after years of absence. He left for the sole purpose of getting away from all his family drama. Now that he is back, he bumps into the local Librarian and he cannot stay away from her. Sophie has the good girl Librarian look with the inner persona of a naughty girl. She too had grown up with a big scandal in her family, but her way of dealing with it is totally opposite. Sophie has learned to keep it all in and take it all as it comes.
I felt sorry for Alex and Sophie. They are a prime example of how parents’ BS can affect their children all the way to adulthood. But I respected them as they stayed strong throughout their ordeals. Their relationship was hot, sweet and quite romantic. As I said earlier, Dahl cranked up the heat. Sophie and Alex had several hot scenes in this book, more than I expected actually. Victoria Dahl is quite the master when it comes to writing sexy scenes. I don’t want to give too much, but there was this bike ride that was full of sexual tension and to think, it was just a ride. Did I mention Alex is good looking, a biker, tatted and hot as sin? Yup, hot. As. Sin.
The ending took me by surprise. Though it’s not a cliffhanger and it had a happy-ever-after, it seemed…incomplete. I wanted to read more about their future, perhaps a more solid arrangement about their relationship. I’m hoping to get more of Alex and Sophie in the installment of the series, Flirting with Disaster. It looks like Isabelle, Sophie’s friend is up next to get her very own HEA.
It was great seeing the town’s famous bar The Crooked R Saloon and bumping into the characters from Jackson Hole series. I believed we bumped into Rayleen, the bar owner, Jenny the bartender and Benton…I’m not sure where he is from, but it sure was fun trying to remember. I have a feeling we will see him again soon.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
