Perfect Trouble by Barbara Elsborg (4 Stars)

Sometimes it’s worth hooking up with trouble when it comes in a delicious package.

Jinx Weston has been on the run since she was twelve, and after attending her mother’s funeral, she finally understands the true danger she was in all of her life. Jonah has been causing trouble his entire life, but he’s willing to make a change if it means keeping Jinx by his side. But first, they have to survive.

Jinx and Jonah were both sweet, funny and strong characters that I adored. As we watched these two get captured and then escape from the bad wolf pack multiple times, we got to see Jinx and Jonah work and play well together. The plot focuses on Jonah trying to bring Jinx back to his office at Paranormal Resolution, but we aren’t told why, which made it a bit of a mystery.

There was also quite a bit of enjoyable steam to this one. I liked that the story was filled with wolves, vampires, faeries, and other creatures. As the plot started to wrap up nicely, I was quickly flipping the pages to see how everything would turn out. The world the author was creating in this story had a lot of future potential, and I really hope this becomes the beginning of a new series.

I really enjoyed this fast-paced, sexy paranormal romance with enjoyable characters in an interesting world.

Jonah, who’s always in trouble, lands in even deeper water when he meets Jinx, but suddenly trouble doesn’t look so bad anymore, in fact, it looks perfect.

Unwilling to forgo final respects even from a distance, Jinx sneaks to the funeral of a mother she hasn’t seen for fifteen years, and lands in the worst trouble of her life. The alpha of the Washburn Valley pack never stopped searching for her and now he has Jinx, he’s not going to let her go. She’s extraordinary breeding material—a super wolf in every way; fast, smart and an exceptional shifter—but she’d rather eat her own eyeballs than mate with him. She just needs to figure out a way to escape.

Jonah’s been in trouble all his life. The faery is currently under an indenture punishment for theft, but the idea of doing an extraction from the Washburn Valley pack fills him with dread. The wolves know his face, know he stole their gold and if they catch him, they’ll eat his guts, with or without ketchup. But saying no when he’s ordered north isn’t an option. His plan to get into the compound works, but that’s the only thing that does. He’s staked and wrapped in iron without even getting a glimpse of his target.

For a pair born to trouble, a shifter and a fairy could be perfect for each other, if only they survive long enough to do more than run.
