A playboy who’s all about the likes…

Is about to get a lesson in love!


Notorious social media influencer Zach Benning is happy to swoop into Royal, Texas, promote the Soiree on the Bay and leave with a fat paycheck. While he’s at it, he’ll give plain-Jane event planner Lila Jones a makeover, online and off. The last thing he expects is to fall for his ravishing creation! But is he really seeing the captivating woman underneath all the newfound hype?

From Harlequin Desire: Luxury, scandal, desire—welcome to the lives of the American elite.

The Trouble with Bad Boys by Katherine Garbera is the fourth book in the Texas Cattleman's Club: Heir Apparent series. New readers of the series should have no problem following the story and figuring out some of the key past events. Already established readers will love the new details provided for the overall series arc.

Lila Jones is your typical girl next door. She's liked by those who know her, but her plain clothes and demeanor make her easy to overlook. Lila has lived in Royal, Texas her entire life. She works for the Royal Chamber of Commerce and wants to make sure that the upcoming Soiree on the Bay is a huge success. Ticket sales for the luxury food, art, and wine festival being held on Appaloosa Island aren't doing so well. Lila gets the idea to message social media influencer Zach Benning, hoping he will mention the event and get the buzz going. Never did she expect him to actually come to Royal.

Unbeknownst to Zach, he crossed a line he swore he would never cross and now he just needs to get away from LA for a while and let the scandal surrounding him die down. He shows up in Royal never expecting to have an instant attraction to Lila who is unlike the women he's usually attracted to. When Lila asks him to promote Soiree on the Bay on all his platforms, he gets the idea to give her a social media and appearance makeover. In the back of his mind, he's thinking that if he can turn her into a replica of the women he usually dates, having a fling with her wouldn't be such a bad thing.

When I initially read The Trouble with Bad Boys, I wasn’t head over heels in love with Lila and Zach. I know they complimented each other and brought out the best in each other, but I just didn’t love them. Sitting back, thinking about them now, I like them more. I see their vulnerabilities and fears. I can actually appreciate them as a couple. There’s this one little part of the story that I’m sure is uber important to the overall series arc. I have a couple of ideas of what’s happening or going to happen. I can’t wait to see if I’m right.
