Genre: New Adult Romance (with some bullying)
Actual Rating: 4 stars
The Trouble with You is the first book I have read by L.A. Cotton! I have had many of her books on my radar for a while now but haven't had a chance to dive in. Until this one... The Trouble with You is an awesome YA/NA crossover romance. The story takes place in high school but are all in their senior year and don't come off as "young". Some books you can tell the age in terms of the way they act and behave and see the immaturity but that's not the case here. I enjoyed getting to know the characters. I liked how their relationships were super hateful in the beginning but then lead to more. I also liked The friendship between Flick and Hailee. Sometimes it felt like Hailee wore the pants in their friendship (for lack of a better term), but it's clear how close two are and the fact that Flick could make Hailee do things she never would have dared before (like going to a party or a football game) was really cool to watch. They essentially brought each other out of their shells like all BFFs should!
That little twist at the ending didn't come as a surprise to me, it was basically hinted at throughout the book. However, I know there will be some readers who won't see it coming and I hope they really love the surprise! Don't worry, this is a complete standalone novel but the ending sets the tone for book 2! I am really excited for it!
If you are in the mood for the following, this is the book for you:
▶ Young Adult/New Adult Romance (I feel it's more NA than YA)
▶ An enemies to lovers romance that spans YEARS
▶ A standalone BULLY romance (the heroine is bullied by her stepbrother and even the hero at some points during the story)
▶ A sports/football romance
Now, while I enjoyed the story for the most part, I will tell you why this is a 4 star read for me rather than a 5. I gave The Trouble with You 4 stars because I felt like there were some unresolved moments within the story I couldn't look past. I won't say outright what they are but if you need to know you can read my spoiler here (view spoiler).
