BOOK REVIEW...Along Came Trouble (Camelot #2) by Ruthie Knox

Ruthie Knox’s Camelot series continues in this sizzling eBook original novel, featuring two headstrong souls who bump heads—and bodies—as temptation and lust bring nothing but delicious trouble.

An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.

Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand? 

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: How to Misbehave, Flirting with Disaster, and About Last Night.

"Along Came Trouble" was a cute contemporary romance that had me admiring Ellen's independent tenacity and swooning over Caleb's charming hearthrobiness (yes! I made up that word! lol).

*Sighs and fawns happily* Caleb, I swear this review could be all about you since you completely and irrecoverably won me over! hahaha

As for the plot, I did think it was very well written and well paced.  Ellen, who is a divorced single mom (how refreshing!), finds herself in the need of Caleb's security services due to her international pop star bro's badgering paparazzi vultures wanting some dirt on him.

What Ellen and now bodyguard Caleb do not expect is the sparks to fly once whenever they're together.  How will things pan out for these two?

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 9
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8
