Book Description

When Noah McDermott, owner of McDermott Construction, walks out into the bright morning sunshine, the last thing he expects is to get run over by a careless woman in a yellow Mercedes. His anger quickly fades into curiosity when the driver turns out to have endless legs and bottomless brown eyes.

Avery Price, daughter of a publishing millionaire, should have followed her instinct and kept driving instead of stopping at a dot on the map. But Trouble, Wyoming is growing on her and she needs a job – fast.

Lately, Noah’s been going through office managers like people go through sticks of gum. He needs someone with a tough backbone to get his office organized. However, he did not want that someone to be the same woman who left her bumper imprint on his backside. As the two of them work together day after day, the sparks fly. Surely they can be professional and keep from acting on their attraction toward one another. As they spend more time together, Noah starts to get the feeling Avery isn’t who she says she is. Is she just a girl looking for a change or is there more going on than she’s telling him?

Avery quickly adapts to her new life in the picturesque town of Trouble. She has a job for the first time in her life and a boss who turns her on more than her ex-fiance ever did. But did she make the right choice by leaving home or is she falling deeper into trouble?


This books has been completely re-edited to fix any errors that previously existed. The current version that is available is the newer, re-edited version.

Editorial Reviews


Avery and Noah have life issues that shape who they are and both deal with issues that open a world that neither thought they could be a part of. I love stories that are real and Ms. Kern gives you that and much more. --Coffeetime Romance

2.0 out of 5 stars Grammar, anyone? June 19, 2011
By DBai
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay- the story is cute if you just want to veg out and read something mindless for an hour. But, what has happened to editors???? Does no one proofread this stuff before it's published (whether electronically or in print)?? The book is absolutely riddled with spelling and grammatical errors and every time I come across one, I trip over it, jarring me from the story while I re-write the word or sentence in my head! It drives me nuts! You do not 'rein in patience', you rein in your temper, or even rein in your impatience, but if you're striving for patience, then you're not 'reining it in'! 'Hallow' and 'hollow' are not synonymous! Pedantic, maybe. But if you're like me and these constant errors will annoy you, then skip this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the girls! January 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
'Looking for trouble' is what I would term 'Chick-lit' and not a genre that I usually read (not that there is anything wrong with it, it just isn't my cup of tea) however, this book is a bit more than that.

The main protagonist, Avery, is a very strong, independant woman and is well-rounded as a character. The story follows her break-up with her ex, the 'strained' relationship with her parents and her search for something more.

In places, Looking for trouble is amusing, sad and true to life. It was easy to read and easy to fall in with the characters and their everyday trials and tribulations.

Some of the descriptive writing is very good and I found myself smiling in more than a few places.

This books is definintely one for the girls, I am sure it will be a big hit in its genre! It is heart-warming, romantic, a little racy and funny. Every thing a girl could want from this kind of book.

I wish Erin every success with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars confused March 5, 2011
By Lol
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am very confused right now.

After reading glowing reviews I purchased this e book with some confidence. I am very disappointed with what I read. The book was so poor I couldn't get more than a fifth of the way through. I read avidly and this is a very rare thing for me.

The book is littered with errors, giving the impression that the only editing that occurred was by spell check. On more than one instance the author misused a word and its meaning. In the portion that I read there were already two plot errors and the writing was disjointed.

Unfortunately the technical aspect of the book was not the only problem I had. I found the two main characters in the book obnoxious. The female lead was immature and self centred; the male lead, unsympathetic and unpleasant. There is also a particularly horrible description of a woman being fired by him, leaving an unfavourable impression of the author herself.

The book was very cheap and I ,therefore, assume this is a new author. In my opinion the book wasn't ready and would not have made it to hard copy.

In summary, I read roughly 100 books per year and this has to be one of my least favourite. Although it is cheap it is not worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really?? May 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading the other reviews I was drawn to the one outlier who had problems with this book. So I downloaded the "sample" from Amazon and started reading. Oh my - I'm really not sure what the other people were reading because I couldn't even get through the sample. At first I thought maybe the writing style was just a joke, as if the story started in someone's daydream and I kept waiting for something to change. But then it went on and on. Then I looked at who the publisher was (none) and realized Erin's just a new writer trying to get her book noticed. I applaud her for that, but this book isn't ready. If you are still debating whether you wish to purchase it or not, I highly recommend downloading the sample first (free) and make your own informed decision that way.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Hearts from TRS! March 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved the characters. Avery has been put in a box her entire life and all she wants to do is be free and independent. She refuses to give up which I love. Noah has stood his ground with his dad but he is extremely stubborn. Avery and Noah have such chemistry but things just keep getting in the way. They are both complex, well-rounded characters. Noah is somewhat of an alpha male but not too dominant. He is very charming when he wants to be. It's not really predictable except for what you would expect to happen in certain situations. I loved the two of them together and just wanted more. The story line flowed really well. The plot was great and there were twists and turns thrown in throughout the story. The sex is only somewhat explicit. There are details but not too much and there is not very much of it. Avery and Noah already have feelings for each other and they are quite deep by that point. The dialogue was great and there are some funny parts. I didn't want to stop reading the story once I started. It drew me in for sure. I loved the interaction between the different characters the entire time and would love to see more from them. - 4 Hearts, Lexee

1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly Underdeveloped May 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thankfully, this was a 99 cent Kindle purchase; otherwise, I doubt I would have ever picked this book. The reviews lured me in thinking it would be a lighthearted, quick read. However, I was more confused and frustrated by the author's often contradictory portrayal of the main characters. She often refers to the heroine as spitfire, but I didn't see any of that spark or wit in Avery. This is a pretty predicable story lacking any of the intensity of good character development or inventive plot lines. Sorry, but I was disappointed, even for a 99 cent buy.

I wanted to like this book, I really did. But the grammar mistakes about did my head in. A good editor and perhaps some beta's worth their weight in gold would have been beneficial... Read more

More About the Author

I was born in Houston, Tx. and am the oldest of two sisters. After moving around umpteen times, I finally settled in northern California, where I lived most my life, but am finally back home now in Texas. I live in the north Ft. Worth area with my husband, 6 year old daughter and 2 year old son.

I absolutely love to read! With the exception of my family, reading is my one passion I would never be able to give up. I've spent countless hours researching some of my favorite authors on Amazon looking for that perfect book to read next. Once I find it, I cherish every page until I've reached the end.

Second to my passion for reading is writing. One day, while going about my daily routine of working, chores, and other domesticated stuff, I sat down at my computer and started typing. I typed until every single word, character and setting was out of my head and on the computer screen. Seven years later, I've finally published my first book, and I could not be happier what my chosen profession.

This passion of mine was a collaborative effort of some of my favorite authors, including, but not limited to, Linda Howard, Cindy Gerard, Rachel Gibson, Susan Mallery, Lori Foster... I could go on and on but I don't want this biography to stretch from now until the end of time.
