Worth the Trouble (St. James #2)
Book Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
It’s fair to say I’m a fan of Jamie Beck. Anything with her name on I know I’m going to love before I even know what it is about. This is the second book in the St James series. I would recommend you read the first book before this one because this one gives you more to the happily ever after for David and Vivi. Both are free if you have kindle unlimited which is an added bonus. With this said Worth the trouble can be read as a standalone.
This book is about Catalina’s story (David’s sister from book one). Her last relationship was a bad one and she is beginning to notice a pattern to the kind of man she tends to date. Cat is a cover girl and she seems to attract men who want her as a trophy rather than what is deeper than the surface. To the outside world her life appears to be glamorous and picture perfect. Underneath the glossy photo, Cat has discovered some life changing information and worries about the impact it could have on a potential partner’s life. When she looks back at her previous relationships she realises they were fairly shallow but now she is worried she can never have anything more meaningful.
Hank is a close friend of the family and works with Cat’s brother (He is introduced to us in book one). He is a sweet gentleman who works as a carpenter. He has always had a thing for Catalina but after the brush off she gave him last year he is a little more reserved. Cat has her eyes set on a business venture between the two of them and Hank has his heart set on making her his. This is a diverse romance with elements of real life troubles.
Like most of Jamie Beck’s books she likes to give a good dynamic to the story therefore making the characters more complex. Life isn’t perfect and this reflects in her books. I really enjoyed this one 5* out of 5. I look forward to the next journey she's ready to dream up and I will be on board for the ride.
*BTW my favorite book by Jamie beck is In the cards which is also free for Kindle Unlimited users. I love a good brooding man.
*I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*.
