Ellie Hunter wasn’t looking for a protector, but she definitely wanted a place to lay low and hide. Divorced from her abusive husband for over six months, Ellie goes to Trouble’s gates as a last resort after her ex pays her a "final" visit.
Allister McCall, Ryan Thomas, Derek Swinney, and Bradley Powers have known Ellie for the better part of their lives and the memory of sharing her is stamped in their minds. When Ellie arrives in small town Trouble, the men jump to all sorts of illicit assumptions.
Once Ellie reconnects with Allister, Ryan, Derek, and Bradley, Ellie’s life is seemingly complete, assuming her ex-husband will let her live in peace. With Navy SEALs training behind them, Ellie’s men are confident Ellie’s ex will finally let her go but if he refuses there will be hell to pay. One way or another, four men will ensure Ellie is protected, loved, cherished, honored, and adored.
Note: This book contains double vaginal penetration.
Here Comes Trouble by Natalie Acres is the prequel to her Trouble, Tennessee series. And I can say I really love the world she has built in this little community. A gated community that protects woman and children from abusers. Men who will stand tall and provide that something extra the law can’t. Ms. Acres does a great job of setting up this world but I struggled with the relationship she built between Ellie and her men. Ellie has been abused and she has come to Trouble for protection. She has a history with the leaders that pre-dates her need of their protection. I liked that about her and the men especially as Ms. Acres had her quickly falling into a sexual relationship practically from the moment she stepped foot on the grounds. I loved that Ellie thought enough of herself that she knew she needed help the law couldn’t provide. I had moments when I just shook my head when she wanted to blame Allister for her poor decisions, but since he was willing to accept the blame what could I say? But here is where I struggled, Ms. Acres seemed to articulate an emotional relationship between Allister and Ellie. The other men were just sexual partners that provided a sexual need for Ellie and not an emotional one. I adore ménage stories and tend to read more than my fair share but they need to be more than sexual and that wasn’t the feeling I got from Ellie or the men. The sex was off the charts hot but other than her closeness with Allister, this story was lacking an emotional connection. But if you are looking for a story that will rev your engines with plenty of sexy time, this story is for you.
