Happy Monday, book friends! Today, I’m excited to be sharing my review of Trouble by Tia Louise for the book tour, hosted by Grey’s Promotions. This book is Beauty and the Beast with billionaires. I loved all the Beauty and the Beast references in Trouble. Even the sad ones. It took one of my favorite fairytales and built an entirely new story around it. If you love billionaire romances, this is definitely the book for you! But I’ll let the book speak for itself 🙂

ABOUT THE BOOK
Legend has it, the man you kiss at a wedding is the man you’ll marry. In my case, it’s nothing but trouble …
Spencer Carrollton is a dark-haired, hazel-eyed beast. When I collided with him at my cousin’s wedding, I wasn’t looking for love. But his naughty eyes flashed, his full lips curled into a knowing smile, and I should have run.
I didn’t. I kissed him instead.
Then he gave me a job when I needed it the most. I never get involved with clients, but Spencer Carrollton is wickedly handsome in a bespoke suit. He’s devastatingly sexy out of it. He’s possessive, demanding, and the best sex I’ve ever had.
He’s an arrogant billionaire, who thinks I’ll fall at his feet, but I’m not going down that road again. Until he pulls me out of danger and insists I move in with him to be safe. As the nights pass and we grow closer, I know I’m losing this fight.
Spencer Carrollton always gets what he wants.
The trouble is, he wants me.

There is so much going on here!
I loved this book! It was a quick read but I wouldn’t call it light. Between Spencer’s inability to love in the beginning, to Courtney’s abusive ex-husband … there is just so much going on in this book.
As far as characters go, I loved Ollie the best!! Ollie (Oliver) is Courtney’s son and he’s absolutely adorable. Between him and his tree frog, I was very entertained throughout the book.
There are quite a few ups and downs in this book, good and bad characters, lost characters. But the ending will make up for all of it (it’s a romance – that isn’t a spoiler 🤣). I finished Trouble in just over a day and I’m already eager to read the story about Daisy and Scout. And, as with some of my other favorite authors, I loved how interconnected some of the characters were! I almost feel like I should have read Twist of Fate (Daisy and Scout’s story) first. I missed out on some of the backstory with Spencer but other than that, Trouble is completely standalone. I am very eager to check out more of Tia Louise’s books in the very near future!
Final Answer for Trouble by Tia Louise?
I loved Trouble so much! As soon as I got sucked into Spencer and Joselyn’s story, it didn’t let go. This is the perfect book to read if you’re looking for a story about a girl saving her beast ❤️
