ARC Book review: Looking for Trouble (Jackson: Girls' Night Out #1)

Available July 29th
ARC ebook provided by publisher through Netgalley

A good reason to be bad...

Librarian Sophie Heyer has walked the straight and narrow her entire life to avoid paying for her mother's mistakes. But in tiny Jackson Hole, Wyoming, juicy gossip just doesn't go away, so the last thing she needs is for history to repeat itself. Falling hard for the sexiest biker who's ever rode into town would undo everything she's worked for. And to add insult to injury, the sexy stranger is none other than Alex Bishop--the son of the man her mother abandoned Sophie's family for. He may be temptation on wheels, but Sophie's not looking for trouble!

Maybe Sophie's buttoned-up facade fools some, but Alex knows a naughty smile when he sees one. Despite their parents' checkered pasts, he's willing to take some risks to find out the truth about the town librarian. He figures a little fling might be just the ticket to get his mind off of family drama. But what he finds underneath Sophie's prim demeanor might change his world in ways he never expected.

I wasn't sure if i was going to like this one but it quickly picked up and drew me in.  You have this big but old scandal that just won't die. Sophie's mom and Alex's dad ran away together years ago. They both disappeared but it took a while to figure out the two disappearances were related.  Alex's brother found the bodies in the middle of no where in a deep crevice in the camper their dad owned. That finally broke the story on what officially happened to them. Now Sophie is trying to live in her small hometown but Alex's mother won't let her be. This is a case of accusing the daughter of being just like the mother for no reason. Alex has been gone for years. Soon as he was able he took off and left Jackson Hole and his mother who took him and his brother on impromtu trips to places she thought her husband supposedly could be when they thought he'd only been missing.  This went on for years after he disappeared and Alex fed up with it and his older brother for supporting their mother's crazy ideas. Now he's back for a short time to attend a memorial service for his dad he wants no part of. Things heat up though when Alex meets Sophie and figures out she is not as button up and staid as she is trying to appear. She rocks the sexy librarian look and Alex is a shaved headed, tattoo covered motorcycle hottie! Alex doesn't blame Sophie for what her mother did and knows that his dad would have to share any blame. He brings out the adventurous side she's been trying to hide publicly for years. Amazingly fun book to read. The girlfriends of Sophie cracked me up. True friends! I was cheering for Alex and Sophie to find their way in all the mess. Great start to a new series.
