Melissa Pearl
(A Songbird Novel)
Publication date: February 1st 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Kelly DeMarco is out of Marcus Chapman’s league. When they met in high school he was besotted with the blue-eyed goddess, but she never gave him the time of day.

High school is now over and the tide is turning.

Five years later, Kelly is job-hunting and the best she can find happens to be Marcus Chapman’s personal assistant. He is thrilled by this second chance and determined to win the beauty’s affections, but Kelly has no intention of falling for the “class clown.”

What you’re looking for can be hiding right in front of you.

In spite of her resolve, Marcus’s playful charm begins to chip away at Kelly’s protective veneer and she starts to realize that tall, dark and mysterious isn’t a requirement, and sometimes Mr. I Don’t Think So can actually be Mr. Perfect.

Will Kelly’s obsession with keeping up appearances push Marcus away or will he have enough drawing power to convince his favorite girl that honest love can outclass anything?

My Review

“Music could get me through anything. I couldn’t necessarily sing in tune, but I could mouth the shit out any song on the planet. I wasn’t a bad dancer either.”

Troublemaker is the 6th book in the Song Bird series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone. Troublemaker follows the story of Marcus and Kelly. Marcus has had an embarrassing crush on Kelly since high-school. But, Kelly has never seen him as more than a dorky looser. Kelly had no way of knowing that one day, her snotty ways would catch up to her. You see, it’s been 5 years since high-school and Kelly is seeking a job of her own; one that has nothing to do with her family’s legacy. The only catch; Marcus would be Kelly’s new boss. Despite their past, Kelly decides to take the job and hopes that the two of them can remain professional…..Marcus has come a long way since high-school and it seems almost as fate has finally given him the chance that he’s always wanted. However, Kelly has some tough walls that have to be broken. Marcus has to somehow show that he’s not the guy that he was in high-school and that he deserves a chance. Will Marcus finally get the chance he’s always wanted? Will his dream girl be worth all those years of pinning?

Overall, I found this book to be a quick and enjoyable read. The characters were frustrating and entertaining at the same time. I will be first to admit that I really didn’t like Kelly. It took me a while to warm up to her. I didn’t like how snotty she was towards Marcus and for the life of me, couldn’t see what Marcus saw in her. That being said, she did eventually grow on me and I found myself rooting for her to give Marcus a chance. And once she did let her guard down, what she saw in Marcus was what she least expected!

Troublemaker is fun read, told from dual points of view. You can easily read it in one sitting. It has lots of funny moments and sweet romance. It has some drama, but not too much. I liked the message behind the story; to not let your past dictate your future, that people can change, that some people deserve the chance to prove that they are worth it.
