Lacy Taylor didn't exactly have a fairytale childhood. After being abandoned by both her parents and raised by her grandfather, she learned to take care of herself at a young age. Fiercely independent, Lacy finds herself back in Trouble, Wyoming working to pay the mortgage on the home her grandfather left her. Though she isn't pleased to be back in the town that triggers memories from her complicated past, Lacy decides to make the best of her situation until she learns her father has been released from jail and she’s not able to make the payments on the house in time. What's a girl to do?
Chase McDermott hadn't thought about Lacy Taylor in years. When he last knew her, she was nothing more than a lanky teenager who was glued to his dorky younger brother’s side. Years later, she’s standing in front of him—grown up and he must admit hot--asking for a waitress position at his restaurant. Even though she doesn’t have previous experience, he offers her a shot and right away her sexy confidence and strong convictions begin to spark something unexpected in him. But when money starts to go missing, the pressure is on Chase to figure out which employee has the greatest motive.
While Chase and Lacy’s attraction continues to escalate, her personal problems are on the rise when her half-sister comes into her life forcing her to deal with the mother that let her down. Lacy and Chase’s relationship culminates in a windfall that neither of them ever fathomed and challenges Lacy to learn what it means to trust someone. Chase will have to push aside his stubborn, unemotional side if there’s any chance they can reconcile their steamy affair into a real future. Can they get past all the roadblocks or will they fall prey to their own troubles?(Synopsis from Goodreads)
Here Comes Trouble is the second book in Erin Kern’s Trouble series. Each book can be read as a standalone. This novel is a contemporary romance set in Wyoming. The novel does have some editing issues, but not enough to deter from the overall reading experience.
The tale centers on Lacy Taylor, a strong independent girl, who doesn’t know the meaning of luck. She has had a crush on her best friend’s brother Chase McDermott since high school. The sparks flying off these too is both hilarious and romantic. The two of them bicker back and forth like an old married couple. He knows just the right things to say and do to infuriate and frustrate her. Chase loves seeing her get flustered and can’t figure out what it is that he likes about her, since she is defiantly not his type.
When Lacy is having trouble, Chase steps in to help and after an encounter with her estranged father she shows up on Chase’s doorstep unexpected. It turns out to be a lot more than a social visit. What follows is a steamy off and on again romance, as the two of them try to get past their own personal demons.
