“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.

About Victoria Dahl

I have my mother to thank for my passion for writing. My mom is an avid reader of popular fiction, and I began reading highly inappropriate books around the age of eleven, I think. (Thanks, Mom, for always leaving those delicious books strewn about!)

To Tempt a Scotsman, a Golden Heart winning historical, was my first published book. Here I am signing the cover! A Rake's Guide to Pleasure (which was excerpted at the back of Scotsman) is my second.

Due to my all-around goofiness, my agent suggested I also try my hand at a contemporary romantic comedy. Boy, is my agent smart! I had a great time writing Talk Me Down, the story of a young woman who goes back to her small hometown in Colorado and causes a huge stir with her secretive career and her burgeoning relationship with the chief of police. Not only did I have a great time writing it, but Tara Parsons at HQN liked it too! So if you like cold weather, hot sex and dirty jokes, be sure to check out Talk Me Down (out in January 2009).

Speaking of cold weather, my family and I live in a beautiful ski town in
Utah. No, I don't ski. I prefer to sit inside with a hot toddy and a good
book while the snow falls. It's especially beautiful to watch when from the inside!

I have a wonderful husband and children, and the house is kind of crowded, what with the dukes, Scotsmen, police chiefs, and naughty ladies running around, but my family is very understanding about my imaginary friends. Good thing, since they refuse to leave!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

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.
