About the Author
Chelsea lives in Phoenix, Arizona, where she spends most of her time writing stories, painting murals, and avoiding housework at all costs. She's ridiculously bad at doing dishes and claims to be allergic to laundry. Her obsessions include: superheroes, coffee, sleeping-in, and crazy socks. She lives with her husband and two children, who graciously tolerate her inability to resist teenage drama on TV and her complete lack of skill in the kitchen.

Kayla sees and remembers Daren as a spoiled brat who is nothing but good looks and no brains, and Daren sees Kayla as a heartless trustfund baby, who didn't care about her father's terminal disease until the actual will-reading. But looks can be deceiving.
Especially when at said will-reading, Kayla's father left them nothing but the option to handcuff themselves to each other in order to find a letter - whatever that letter may say...
I really loved Book #1 from the Finding Fate series (Best Kind of Broken), so I was really looking forward to reading Perfect Kind of Trouble. And as wary as I am with sequels to stories I really love, there was actually no need to be - because Perfect Kind of Trouble was indeed prefect and even better than Book #1.
The story starts off with a rather unusual plot that has Kayla and Daren embark into a rather hilarious scavenger hunt. Given that they don't regard each other highly was not going to be an easy tasks, but sure worth the chase in the end.
As expected (I mean, of course it was expected, but that didn't make me enjoy the story any less), they both start opening up to each other in the course of their quest, and the unavoidable feelings arise. But we also discover more about Kayla and Daren's past, and how it has turned them into what they are now.
I cannot disclose too much about the storyline because it would very surely spoil a really nice read, but I can tell you that it's very well worth discovering this book and the other works from this author. I will most certainly be eagerly awaiting the release of Book #3 in the series.
Kayla and Daren know one another, but don't. How does that happen? Well, Kayla is Old Man Turner's daughter, who only frequented his house once in a great while, and Daren was, for all intents and purposes, his gardener while growing up.
As a kid, Daren enjoyed doing things -- he learned to cook with Marcella, his family cook before they had to let her go, and learned to garden with Old Man Turner. When Daren went to him with his baseball card collection, ecstatic about their someday value, Old Man Turner took them from him, saying that he'd get them back someday when he learned their true value.
Now Old Man Turner is dead and in his will, he has appointed Kayla and Daren the heirs of...
...a scavenger hunt.
Everything else in his estate has been donated. Kayla is furious because the father who didn't love her has left her nothing other than a piece of paper and the option to being handcuffed to a guy she doesn't know/like. Additionally, he's done it in a form that once held happy memories for her, when he'd send her and her mother on scavenger hunts to picnics.
Daren, equally, is a bit miffed -- what about his baseball card collection? And truly, it's a bit more than just the card collection, but that box is his; where is it?
What Eddie, the attorney, failed to tell them initially, was that the scavenger hunt led to money -- an amount he was uncertain of. And the reason for them being handcuffed? Turner wanted them to find it together and split it. Without the handcuffs, he knew without a doubt that whomever found it would hide if from the other.
True to form, once money is mentioned, both of these broke co-eds start thinking in terms of dollar signs -- exactly what her father, his friend, didn't want them to do.
Daren and Kayla start out the book at one another's throats, but once money is mentioned, all of a sudden the world is rainbows and butterflies --
--and kudos for Daren for stepping back and noticing it.
...it doesn't, however, explain his sudden attraction to Kayla.
While I loved, loved, loved Pixie and Levi's story, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Daren's. I wasn't a huge Daren fan in BEST KIND OF BROKEN but when Daren and Kayla come bounding by the inn while in handcuffs, I have to admit I became a bit curious.
I enjoy when stories overlap in some way or another -- Laura Kaye's HARD INK series is one example, another being JC Emery's BAYONET SCARS. It's fun to see a different side of a story, even though in this case you don't really see much different other than the reason behind why Daren is handcuffed to a blond when he goes to the inn.
