Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father's protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she's forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla's seen his type before. But Daren isn't who he seems to be . . .
Struggling to make amends for his family's mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He's beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner's princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she's just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla's dad could have left them . . . was each other.
Perfect Kind of Trouble is the second in the "Finding Fate" series. I read the first book, Best Kind of Broken a while back and finally got around to this one. The book does very well as a stand alone as most of the characters from the first book aren't really in this one. This is Kayla and Darin's story.
If you can ignore the ridiculousness of the couple having to be handcuffed while in a wild scavenger hunt in order to inherit their fortune, then this is actually a very sweet story. Kayla and Darin both have preconceived ideas about the other person. Being forced to spend time so closely together allows them to really see much deeper than the surface. I liked both characters immensely. Although, Darin did kind of have to grow on me a little in the beginning. But in the end I did enjoy the story.
Do they find the key to their inheritance? You'll have to go on the hunt with them to find out. It's definitely worth taking the journey with them.
