I find myself a bit conflicted with this book. In a way, with this series. See, I love Shiloh Walker’s writing but I don’t think this series shines light on the best things about what makes her books special. I’ve been incredibly excited to read each and every single one of the books in this series, including this one. And then we get to the actual story and something usually makes me loose that spark. Could be my expectations.
In the case of THE RIGHT KIND OF TROUBLE, it was the heroine. I was hoping Moira would have a really good reason why she’s made Gideon suffer for the past eighteen years of rejection. There must’ve been, right? And what I found was not enough substance and a heroine that just came across as too spoiled, too bratty, and at times too stupid to live. Gah! I wanted to throttle her at times, and then grab awesome Gideon by the ears and tell him to find happiness elsewhere. As he should’ve done years ago!
But leaving that aside, when she wasn’t getting on my nerves or I wasn’t thinking about why she caused all this pain to them for so many years, I found the concept of their second chance at love endearing. A love that was able to withstand so many years apart, so much rejection and hate, so many sour memories. It was nice to see these high school sweethearts finally get an HEA. Of course it helps that I adored the hero and I just wanted him to be happy. Even if that was with Moira.
The mystery of who is after the McKays gets resolved in this book. And if I do say so myself, I don’t think the bad guy was quite as mysterious as I’m used to reading from Ms. Walker. I shockingly had this figured out early on in this book (and suspected already from book 1) and I kept turning the pages waiting for the moment when the reveal would come so I could scream AHA! I was right. And, admittedly, I did.
So while this was a fun read, I couldn’t really connect with it the way I was hoping for. As always though, I’ll wait patiently for the next book by Ms. Walker.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
