Review: Playing with Trouble by Chanel Cleeton

Title: Playing with Trouble

Author: Chanel Cleeton


The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

The daughter of one of the Senate’s most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancé cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies.

Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest “Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?


5 out of 5 stars

It's no secret that I love student-teacher romance stories so when I realized that Playing with Trouble featured one I didn't hesitate to buy it for my Nook and read it immediately especially given how much I loved the first book. Playing for Trouble ended up exceeding all of my expectations. I loved it so much. Even more than I loved Flirting with Scandal and I loved that book a lot.

The romance in this book was beautiful. The way the author built it up from the instant attraction between the two of them in class to an actual meaningful relationship was perfect. But what I really loved about this book was not the romance but Blair's character. She starts off the book doing her best to be the perfect daughter and make everyone else happy to finally standing up for herself and doing what makes her happy. She was a character I could really connect with and root for. As for Gray, he was your typical brooding hero and I loved him oh so much.

Overall, as I said already, I really loved this book! Chanel Cleeton truly wrote an outstanding romantic story and I can't wait to read more books by her.
