Along Came Trouble 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Along Came Trouble (Camelot, #2) 
3 of 5 stars false 
Ruthie Knox’s Camelot series continues in this sizzling eBook original novel, featuring two headstrong souls who bump heads—and bodies—as temptation and lust bring nothing but delicious trouble.
An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.
Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand? 


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Ellen is a single mother; she works hard and doesn't need a man in her life. Her brother is a celebrity and when the paparazzi start showing up on her property to get a glimpse at her neighbor, who was in a relationship with her brother, he hires a security. Caleb is Ellen’s bodyguard and while he is attracted to her, he is determined to ignore it. Ellen really bugged me in this book; she is so determined to prove she can do things on her own, she cuts off her nose to spite her face. Caleb was a good guy, he is patient and understanding, he gives Ellen the room to work things out in her own head. My only problem with him is that he seemed a little to perfect, at one point it was like oh come on no one is that understanding. I liked Carly and her grandmother they were hilarious. Ellen’s ex-husband was a complete waste of space; I hated him and was really hoping he would fall into a ditch somewhere. I loved that the couple did not have an instant love connection; they lusted after each other a lot.  They had fights and had to learn how to be together, they had a real relationship. This book was a good quick read; I liked the writing and would have rated it higher if I hadn't had problems with the two main characters.
