Book Review: Kissing Trouble by Morgana Phoenix

Title: Kissing Trouble (In The Dark Series, #2)
Author: Morgana Phoenix
Genre: Psychological Thriller Romance
Warning: Strong language and sexual content

Their screams will be his lullaby.

Escaping into the wilderness should have been a piece of cake for a super-babysitter like Julie Brewer. But even she isn’t prepared for the horror awaiting their arrival, or the man who had broken her heart all those years ago to suddenly show up on the doorstep.

Mason Brody has a plan and it is simple: wait for Julie to grow up. Yet in no way is he prepared for the fierce amazon who ambushes him with a baseball bat, or the way the shy fifteen year old has blossomed into a beautiful, passionate woman he can't get enough of.

But there is so much more than just their past between them. There is a dark force lurking in the shadows, waiting for the chance to appease its hunger for death and it will stop at nothing until it is fed.

Can Mason and Julie keep the evil at bay long enough to escape? Or will the monster add their lives to its list?

My Review

If you haven't put Morgana/Airicka Phoenix on your list of authors that you automatically buy the moment they release a new book, I have to ask...WHY NOT? You can be guaranteed that no matter what she comes out with, it's going to be fantastic...just like Kissing Trouble.

Don't let the relatively tame start of this book fool you. Everything-the romantic and sexual tension, the suspense, the tempers, the raw emotion-all of it starts off simply but gradually builds...and builds...and builds-until that final bursting point where ALL of it comes to a head and the real craziness of this thriller just explodes over the last quarter of the book. And if you think you know what's going on and who the perpetrator is...well, you may want to think again.

The characters of this second stand-alone story in the In The Dark series really come to life off the pages. Julie is a wonderfully strong young woman, capable of taking care of herself and others. Mason is the definition of sexy alpha protective male-the bad boy turning over a new leaf-and you'll be swooning over him for every single page of this story. The secondary characters are very well developed, with their own strong personalities that make each of them stand out in their own way.

And then you have the fabulous writing-keeping you glued to every page, especially the further you get into the book where the suspense just keeps building up. The writing and characters in this author's books are the reason why she is always an automatic buy for me, and Kissing Trouble is no exception.

My recommendation-BUY the book...READ the won't be sorry, and if you haven't read this author before, you're probably going to find yourself with a new favorite. 5 suspense-filled stars for Kissing Trouble!
