The Tremaynes are one of the most prosperous families in Lantano Valley, California. But money can’t buy everything—especially when it comes to love…

Morgan Tramayne has a heart of gold, but to keep her children’s charity afloat she’s had to resort to some less than legal means: donations from a notorious cat burglar who targets the wealthy. It’s only a matter of time before Morgan’s criminal connection blows up in her face—especially since her undeniable attraction to the man heading the investigation keeps putting her in tricky situations.

Former police detective-turned-investigator Gage Juliano has two goals: salvaging his career and nabbing Lantano Valley’s present-day Robin Hood. But when he meets a beautiful, curvaceous woman who’s more interested in helping others than amassing a fortune like the rest of the town’s residents, Gage finds his desires pulled in an unexpected direction…

Asking for Trouble is so much more than meets the eye, and I think this cover is slightly deceptive. Though I think it is the perfect Summer read (or Winter, or Fall, or Spring), it’s not your typical, sweet, boy-meets-girl-and-they-ride-off-into-the-sunset story. There are layers, here, Pretties.

Morgan comes from money, but she’s willing to do anything to save her mother’s charity. Even take money from a person known as Nemesis, a criminal who appears to be a modern-day Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Detective Gage Juliana is on the case, but what he doesn’t plan on is falling for Morgan. As Gage’s investigation gets closer to the truth, their relationship intensifies. What happens when both of them get close enough to get burned?

I really liked the way this story was told. I thought it drug along in a few places, but I honestly don’t know what Stewart could have taken anything out. I loved Gage and Morgan’s chemistry and the way this story played out. Highly, highly recommended!
