BLURB

From the author of the Wicked Bay series, comes an angsty YA/NA enemies-to-lovers romance.

Hailee Raine only has to survive one more year.

One year of life in her football obsessed town.

One year of nauseating school spirit.

Just one more year of her cruel step-brother Jason; and his cocky, arrogant, football-playing friends.

She hates them. Especially, Cameron Chase, the guy she thought was different.

Cameron Chase has the world at his feet.

He has it all; good looks, talent, and the charm to go with it.

He has colleges lined up at the door, all wanting a piece of Rixon Raiders star wide receiver.

Until something threatens everything he’s ever worked for, and only one person can quiet the war raging inside him.

But he’s supposed to hate her; his best friend’s sister.

She’s off-limits.

Untouchable.

She’s trouble with a capital T.
 

Then Hailee finds herself in the middle of a football prank gone wrong…

And suddenly hating each other never felt so good.

 

The Trouble With You is the first book in The Rixon Raiders series. All books in this series can be read as standalones!

*****

“Two things I disliked about this book. One was the major book hangover it threw me into and two I never wanted it to end.” ~ Kitty Kats Crazy About Books

“An enemies-to-lovers, slow burn romance with all of the angst. L.A Cotton slayed it with this new series that is a MUST read.” ~ Queen of the Books

 

 

 ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Edgy. Angsty. Addictive Romance.

Author of mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

REVIEW

There is so many things I loved about this book. But there is also one thing I hated. It ended. Why oh why it had to end.

After reading LA CF series I thought no one will be able to swoon me like Jackson did. (#13Forever) but God. #14? He did a number on my heart and weaselled himself into it. And it’s just not letting the go. I just love him.

I won’t tell you what the story is about. You have a blurb for that. The only I will tell you about that you just have to start reading it. Now. Have you started? No? What are you waiting for?! Read. Now.

You are welcome.

And welcome to #14FanGroup.

Thank you Ms. Cotton for letting me be part of the review team.

Synopsis

 

 

Life being Layton Parks isn’t easy. Everything she touches seems to just fall apart at her fingertips – the air conditioning, the coffee maker, her ability to say no. A push over at heart, Layton does what she’s told, when she’s told. With two jobs bleeding her dry, she barely has time to register the rut she seems to have fallen in. Despite this, she’s okay with her life. It’s simple and uncomplicated.

 

Until it isn’t. 

 

Kane Thatcher doesn’t need any help in being broken because he’s already a walking mass of shattered shards. Unlike Layton, Kane is no one’s Yes Man. After a split decision three years previous turned his world upside down, he’s finally living independent, with no one to worry about but himself.

 

Until he isn’t. 

 

He’s curious about her, and determined to make her stand up for herself and be who she wants to be.

She’s a little scared of him, yet knows there’s a softer side of him hiding behind all the hate. 

Will they bring out the best in each other, or will outside obstacles force out the worst? Will hate win over love, or will they be able to navigate their way through it together?

Blurb:
Not Every Scar is Visible…What do you do when the girl you want can’t even remember your name?

This pretty, petite, long-legged, fiery girl who makes me weak in the
knees. Of all the chicks who flirt with me, hang around me, I could have my
pick but no… I want psycho girl.

One day she ignores my existence, and the next she smiles and talks to me
as if she knows me, as if she wants me.

What the hell is she playing at? She’s driving me up the wall.

I want her so bad I can’t think straight.

It’s the last thing I need, with these strange nightmares that plague my
nights and make me wonder whether something happened in my past.

Something I can barely remember.

Memories of a bogeyman, and a body, and blood, and fear unlike any I’ve
ever felt in my life.

Between the dreams and this sexy psycho-girl, I might as well be losing my
mind.

Unless I find out what’s going on, get the girl and lay the bogeyman to
rest for good…

  •  REVIEW
  • This story is simply beautifully heart wrenching. It breaks you. And then puts you back again. Just to break you again.
  • Ms Preston has described all the feels perfectly. Her characters were well developed and I connected with them so much that I cried with them. For them. Recently I rarely have books that move me so much. But this? This spoke to my heart. To all the feels I have.
  • Well done Ms Preston. A story that I will revisit. Even though it makes me go through mountains of tissues.
  • Thank you for sharing this story with us.
  • 5 heavenly stars.

    SYNOPSIS

    Hallie Clarke is going back to Michigan, with her newfound optimism for life in place. Sort of.
    Feeling refreshed from her time away, Hallie is ready to get down to business and face her nightmare again. With music in her ear, and her best friend by her side, she finally feels like she can put the past behind her.
    If only she could put her ex behind her, too.

    Nate Harris has changed. He’s moody, sullen and actually a bit of a you-know-what. No matter how hard he works out, how many girls he beds, he just can’t get the girl who got away out of his damn head. His guilt about what happened eats at him, and there isn’t much left for him to pick up.
    With Hallie back in his life, whether he wants her there or not, how is he supposed to move on?

    Both are still living the trauma of Freshman Year, both still filled with unfinished business and unanswered questions. But with a group of friends destined to put them together, a stalker kind-of ex and the usual college chaos, will Hallie and Nate be able to find each other again?

    Will they be able to rekindle what they almost had?

    REVIEW

    What can I say? I love Hallie and Nate. Mostly Nate. But hey. Who can blame me for loving a perfect guy who is a bit bad too?

    Ms. Love comes back with an amazing story. Story of love. Friendship. Forgiveness. And also a bit of rivalry. And I like it. I like that we don’t have that much drama like in book 1 but there is enough to keep you turning the pages without breaks (yes toilet break was done with my kindle lol). I simply couldn’t stop reading it.

    Hallie and Nate have matured since they last saw each other. They both changed due to events that caused them to break. Hallie knows what she wants and finally I showing her true self. And Nate? Nate is still hot. Still drool worth but he also changed. He is not going through girls just to score. Ha! After Hallie all he does is workout. They both try to convince each other and themselves l, and everyone around them that between them it’s over. But how can it be over when you feel all the feels just on a mere mention of her/his name?

    Amazing read. I love it mostly because we get to know Nate really well. His POV are deep and thoughtful. Show us, the readers, that not everything is as perfect as you might think.

    One of the best reads for 2018.

    Thank you for giving us Hallie and Nate.

    5 amazing stars.

    Blurb:

    There was supposed to be only one book for Tessa and Jazz, but you guys begged and I listened, so without further ado, here’s your blurb for book two!
    Three weeks changed everything for Tessa Rowan. She knows what she wants, knows who she is, and what her heart beats for. Now, ten months later, Tessa finds herself back in the US—permanently due to a streak of fate. Jazz has returned, too, though the man she finds is no longer the guy she fell in love with.
    Corporal Jesse ‘Jazz’ Connor has had it all—and walked away, thinking he could always make amends later. Returning to the US after months in hell proves to him though that sometimes you cannot pick up the pieces. Add to that the biggest mistake of his life and you hit rock-bottom.
    Tessa won’t give up and Jazz won’t give in, but sometimes you cannot fight your Forever Girl… can you?

    the South to develop recipes that are a twist on the classics and uniquely my

    discover I’ve been paired with him, the worst blind date ever—bless
    his heart, and I’m determined not to let anyone get in my way. So, I buckle my
