Title: Troublemaker ~ A Songbird Novel
Author: Melissa Pearl
Publication Date: February 11, 2016
Kelly DeMarco is out of Marcus Chapman’s league. When they met in high school he was besotted with the blue-eyed goddess, but she never gave him the time of day.
High school is now over and the tide is turning.
Five years later, Kelly is job-hunting and the best she can find happens to be Marcus Chapman’s personal assistant. He is thrilled by this second chance and determined to win the beauty’s affections, but Kelly has no intention of falling for the “class clown.”
What you’re looking for can be hiding right in front of you.
In spite of her resolve, Marcus’s playful charm begins to chip away at Kelly’s protective veneer and she starts to realize that tall, dark and mysterious isn’t a requirement, and sometimes Mr. I Don’t Think So can actually be Mr. Perfect.
Will Kelly’s obsession with keeping up appearances push Marcus away or will he have enough drawing power to convince his favorite girl that honest love can outclass anything?
I have enjoyed everyone of the Songbird novel and so far, I’d say Marcus is totally one of my favorite songbird hero. He’s just so sweet and thoughtful and the way he loves… he’s very ideal. Though physically speaking, his looks might not be very ideal. Actually, I think the reason why I liked him the most was because of this. He’s not your usual, tall, dark and handsome kinda guy. In fact, I’d say with the way Kelly treated him, he’s pretty much ordinary looking. But whatever her lacked in his physical looks, he definitely made it up with his personality.
Kelly on the other hand, I find her personality was not very much justified. I find her very shallow with her choice of men although it could be attributed to the fact that she’s used to acting in the way other people expected her too. I was just hoping that her reasons for some of her actions were given better light. Like that scene at the pool for example. She said there’s reason why she did it but it wasn’t showed very well.
But it was nice how she made up for all of it in the way she came to her senses with her parents and stood up for her feelings for Marcus.
All in all, I still really enjoyed the story. And the songs! I loved all the songs and how it was played into the story.
