Hooked on Trouble by Kelly Siskind…Release Day Blitz & Review

HOOKED ON TROUBLE by Kelly Siskind (January 10, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99; Over the Top Book 3)

 

Reality bites.  Hard.

The last time Raven did “real” was sixteen months ago, when she spent one unforgettable night with the tattooed, impossible sexy Nico, and then he disappeared the next day.  Since then, she’s kept her guard up and her feelings to herself.  She doesn’t have time for relationship drama when she’s busy searching for her long lost sister.

Nico hasn’t stopped thinking about Raven—her sultry curves, inked skin, or the fact that he ditched her after their night together.  Now that they’re living in the same city, he knows this is his chance to make things right.  What better way to prove to Raven he’s for real than helping her find her sister?  But when the lines between right and wrong start to blur, putting his job on the line, Nico has to decide if the risk is worth the ultimate reward.

EXCERPT

His large hand presses against my knee under the table. “Can we talk?”

Jesus, his touch. It’s the first time I’ve felt the weight of his palm on me since Aspen. It’s heavy. Huge. Callused. Instinctually I shift forward, my body no longer mine to command. He doesn’t move his hand. Just his thumb. It presses harder, dragging downward. I grip my armrests to keep from sliding to the floor. He stares at me, waiting for my answer.

Yes. No. Maybe. I choose silence.

The way our lives are entrenched with our friends, I’ll have to spend time with him, and I can’t keep pretending I can block him out. Moving here was about starting fresh, which means letting go of this grudge. But talking about Aspen could stir up more feelings, the same way the experience spurred my need to find Rose. If we talk about our time in the hot tub, it could unhinge me further.

Our waiter arrives to take our order, and Nico’s thumb moves again, a tiny brush, his skin against mine, sending a pulse between my thighs. My sanity plummets. I shout, “Chicken,” like a lunatic as I push away from the table.

Nico’s hand slides from my knee, but his eyes don’t waver. I feel his gaze on my back as I hurry to the bathroom. The second I get inside, I close the door and lean against it, thankful it’s not a public room with several stalls. I take a few deep breaths.

How can that bit of contact turn me inside out? The smallest touch?

Memories of his other touches flip through my mind, snippets of skin and ink, flashes of ecstasy.

My back arching.

His fingers exploring.

The curve of his inked shoulder.

His huge hands.

The sheer size of him.

We might not have had sex, and the details may be fuzzy, but there’s no doubt it was the hottest night I’ve ever had. What isn’t fuzzy is the time I spent with him in the hot tub prior, and how he took advantage of my vulnerability.

Goddamn Nico. And Goddamn Aspen.

 

Hooked on Trouble is the third and final book in Kelly’s series, Over the Top.  And it’s one I have been dying to heard.

“To show someone rise, you have to show them fall.”

This is Nico and Raven’s story.  And let me tell you, it’s one hell of an emotional ride.  Raven has always kept her heart locked up.  She doesn’t do feelings and has always been one to put her feelings in little compartments and lock them away forever.  Until Nico.  Until that one night she gives him a glimpse of who she is.  And he destroys her.

Nico sees himself as the only solid foundation for his family.  He’s been trying to help his brother from ending up in prison like their father and keeping his sister on the straight and narrow and away from drugs.  It’s a lot for one person to handle, but he does it because he feels it’s his duty.  But only a few know of his family’s issues – he doesn’t open up about that part of his life much.  And when he meets Raven, he keeps that part under lock and key.  A heartbreaking mistake.

Nico and Raven realize they need to handle their problems or risk causing friction and possibly losing friends over their issues.  But what they can’t deny is their attraction to one another – something that has no diminished since their last and only night together. 

Nico is a huge mushy marshmallow.  He may a very strong cop on the outside, but inside, he’s all feelings and mush.  And he’ll do anything and everything to protect those he loves.  Raven is the complete opposite.  Even though they’ve had very similar upbringings, they made different decisions and that’s cause Raven is be more hard and rigid.  But something in Nico brings out the soft side of her.

“Our past choices shape us, but our future ones define us.”

I love Nico and Raven’s story.  It’s not all butterflies and rainbows.  There are some dark tales that work their way into their lives.  And it causes them both to re-evaluate things and their relationship.

Kelly has written another amazing story and I am so glad that we finally got Nico and Raven’s story. I knew it wasn’t going to be a fluffy romance but I loved how she mixed the hard edges with some soft edges – made the story even better.  And I love reading about Shay and Kolton along with Lily and Sawyer. I hate to see them end but all their stories were beautiful and I loved each journey.

I look forward to reading more from Kelly in the future.
