Synopsis: It takes one to know one
The moment Vivian Walker spies Seth Anderson she knows they're a match made in hedonistic pleasure. And they both agree their one night together is all about fun, not forever.
Now, years later, Seth remains a favorite memory. Surely the sizzling chemistry has faded, though, right? Apparently not. Because he's still sinfully attractive, and she likes the man he is. When he suddenly becomes a full-time dad to his newborn daughter, Vivian falls hard. Yet despite the responsibilities, he's not a good bet for commitment. And she needs to guard her heart before she gets into trouble!
Her Kind of Trouble was not the story I was expecting at all ... it was so much more. I've read a few of Sarah Mayberry's titles now and enjoyed them all, but this story is by far my favourite.
Seth and Viv share a hot tumble in the back of a limo the night their siblings get married. They are both in their 20’s and still exploring what path their lives will take. Viv then spends time working in the US and their path’s cross occasionally over that time at family gatherings. Now Viv is back living in Australia and her path crosses once again with Seth.
This passage is discussing a particular ‘momento’ that Seth has kept.
“You did not.” She stared at Seth, flabbergasted.
“You kept these for ten years?”
I loved that this book is set in Australia but it bothered me that reference is made to ‘diapers’ since it's very much an American term. I find this a little surprising since the author is also Australian. This wasn’t an issue for the story though, it's really just a ‘pet peeve’ of mine.
It would have been nice if there was an Epilogue. As most romance stories seem to have them these days I guess I just expect them. But, all up I loved this one, I found it really refreshing and I certainly wasn't ready to say goodbye to Seth, Viv and Daisy when I came to the last page.
