Angsty YA/NA Bully Romance

Overall 3.5 stars
Performance 4.5 stars
Story 3 stars

The Trouble with You is a mixture of many tropes/genres - brother's best friend, bully, enemies to loves, and sports. It was an entertaining YA/NA listen, but there were a few times I was just left shaking my head. These characters didn't act like they were seniors in High School, and I feel like it would have been better if they had been in college. The bullying and "pranks" that take place in this one had practically zero repercussions, and I often wondered where the adults/parents were. One incident in particular was especially vile and degrading and I'm not sure why this assault was not taken to the authorities. The "boys will be boys" mentality was hard to get past and had me rolling my eyes throughout. That said, it still had me intrigued enough to want to find out what was going to happen with our characters. The epilogue set up the next book and I'm curious to find out more about Jason & Felicity.

The narration was great and I enjoyed both Wen Ross and Sarah Puckett's performances. They voice male and female characters well and I didn't have trouble differentiating between characters. Wen Ross has a deep and sexy voice, but I did feel that it was a bit too deep/mature for 18 year old Cameron. Overall, this was an angsty and entertaining listen.

Bully romance

In the grand tradition of enemies to lovers but with high school antics. Hailee is tough as nails and I truly don’t think I would have survived the bullying she endured. Her stepbrother Jason and his group of football gods are tiny terrorists. It’s really so good in that NA bully way. I enjoyed everything about it but would highly recommend not letting children under the age of 18 read this book. Cameron has a ton of potential to be a great BBF.

The narrators are kicka$$ and really capture all the angst and drama you love in NA.

There is a certain event towards the end of the book that really threw me. The way it was handled left me completely aghast. It took me more than a week to gets my thoughts together on this. If this were marketed for adults I wouldn’t bat an eye but I don’t like to normalize certain destructive behaviors against children. I had the same issue with the end of After and the second book in the Abbi Glines Field Party Series.

Overall it’s a really solid story and I would continue in the series.

A YA Bully Romance

This is a YA Bully romance. I have mixed feelings about this one I Liked The overall story is good but the bullying is hard to take at times. I know that is some ways that boys show that they like girls but some of these pranks are down right mean. I like the way it ends up though. The narration was spectacular I just love Sarah Puckett I am not familiar with Wen Ross but he was great too

hot hot hot

Trouble with you is the first installment of the Rixon Raiders Series, and I cannot wait for book two. This is the story of a group of teens who are intertwined together, in some way or another. I loved all the characters, that were introduced. This is the story of Hailee, and her step-brother’s best friend Cameron. They have been at odds for six years, until things started taking a turn for the worst. I loved the storyline. Some of the crucial events that happens you can’t predict, and I love that. Hailee is strong ,sarcastic as hell, and I loved every minute of it. Cameron was just stuck in a hard place, and boy, do you feel for him. Also you’ll meet Flick, Hailee best friend, Ash and Jase, Cameron’s best friends, and as supporting characters in this story, they couldn’t have been written any better. I must say though Ash, has won my heart and becoming my favorite quickly. I can’t wait for the next book, because I have so many questions. This book has me recommendation 100%

Amazing!

Cameron and Hailee stole my heart in more ways than I could have imagined! This book was amazing. I'm not typically one to listen to high school/bully romances, but this book had me so intrigued by the blurb that I had to give it a shot! Needless to say, I was not disappointed! This story kept me hooked from the beginning! I also have to say the narration on this audiobook was superb. The narrators really captured me, making me feel like I was in the story! 🎧 Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Young Adult with mature situations!

My high school time is long in the past yet I still enjoy books with characters that young. Maybe it's because I wish I could go back in time and relive some of those years. They were pretty awesome in hindsight. Anyhoo...

Bully books are all the rage at the moment and I have ambivalent feelings about those because, honestly, bullying shouldn't be romanticized. But nosy person that I am I just wanted to know why people are so taken with them. I can see it. I totally can. The key is how and if the author makes the hero redeemable. LA Cotton did a decent job with Cameron and the dual point of view definitely helped. He did some horrible things. Things, I would never forgive under normal circumstances. For too long he was Jason's lapdog and didn't stand up to him. But in the end he was so darned endearing when he started fighting for Hailee's affection.

Hailee was the light of this story. She was smart mouthed, snarky and strong and didn't take the awful stuff those jerks dished out lying down without retaliating. She had her own way of getting back at them and I really loved her for not falling over herself when Cameron started to come around and kept him at arm's length. Not for long though because the guy had charms.

Now Jason, Hailee's stepbrother, was a douchebag extraordinaire. Focused on football, arrogant as they come, full of himself and so incredibly rude, offensive and hurtful - It'll be interesting to see if and how this author will redeem him.

Wen Ross is always a joy to listen to. I've never listened to Sarah Puckett before - her narration style is one of those I don't enjoy very much. She has that strange way of dragging out the last syllable of the last word in a sentence, however, that aside her performance was quite good.

This is my first LA Cotton book and this one was really engaging - I just couldn't stop listening. I'm still not sure if I'm happy about the whole bullying fad. However, with this being quite steamy it isn't intended for a young audience. So now I'm looking forward to THE GAME YOU PLAY!

just don’t

There is simply no excuse for abuse. Every character in this book is egregiously irresponsible and immature about it, including all parental figures. Author spoiler, having a relationship requires development - in real life and in literature.
Also, narrative includes a child and neither of these two “artists” bothered to develop any vocalizations acceptably close to it.

Growing up angst!

L A Cotton has written a powerful book about realistic situations that seniors in high school could face. Hailee has long endured the hatred and the mean bullying pranks of her soon to be step brother. While Jason hides a secret that has crushed him and will hurt her. She has always fought back but these pranks may be getting out of hand. Cameron has wanted Hailee since he first laid eyes on her but Jason is his long time friend so he chooses to follow Jason. The chemistry between Hailee and Cameron is so hot. Will these two grow up or grow apart? Cameron also keeps a heart-wrenching secret from everyone including his football family. This story has so many twists and turns in it. I felt one of the incidents should have been reported to the police.

Sarah and Wen give a superb narration performance. They portray the emotions of these characters. This is a very emotional tale for the characters and also the readers. Sarah and Wen really bring these characters to life and this life is filled with a lot of turmoil.

I asked to receive this Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. I highly recommend this Audible book. It will pull you in and make you want to know what will happen next. Several of these teens have excess baggage that no teenager should have to carry. This story will have the reader experiencing a multitude of emotions.

Oh MY!!

Let me tell you!! I loooooooooved this book! It was the perfect amount of angst. You hate them, you love them, you hate them some more. The chemistry is exploding from every page. My heart and mind are warring between Love and Hate. It is a CLOSE battle. The characters invoke so much emotion from you that you feel just as crazy as the characters in this book.

The narration was TOP NOTCH! Sarah and Wen gave stellar performances. They made a wonderful team and were a pleasure to listen to.

Slow build but worth the time

I experienced this story using Audible and will admit it wasn’t what I expected. It did take me a little time to connect with the characters, I struggled with who to like, who not to like.. but as it progressed something clicked and I was hooked until the end.

Great Enemies to Lovers story and wonderful narration!

Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross do a great job at narrating The Trouble With You.

I loved the dynamic between all of the characters; Hailee, Felicity, Jason, Cameron, and Asher. Friendship and rivalry are prevalent throughout the story. I love where L.A. Cotton took Hailee and Cameron in this book and I can’t wait to learn more about the other characters in upcoming releases!

WOW

When I read this book I fell in love, listening to it on audible brought it to a whole new level. The narrators did an amazing job bringing these characters to life. They honestly made me feel like I was in the middle of everything that was going on.

LA Cotton is one of my go to authors, she always gives us a tale that holds me captive and feeds me so many emotions as I read through that I feel like I have been on one hell of a brilliant ride. She gives you the prefect blend of heat, angst and emotion. Add this into audible and these emotions are ten fold.

I can't wait to read and listen to the next book in this completely addictive series.

This one is Cam and Hailey's story, the forbidden step-brothers-best-friend, enemies-to-lovers tale that will have you gripped and entertained from the beginning to end

Can you find love with you brother's best friend?

This author is a first for me. I was hooked into this story. A story of angsty young love, bratty step siblings and friends. Both Cam and Hailey felt the pull of young love but her stepbrother made Cam choose. This story follows the teens through senior year, football and lots of heart aches and healing.
I was bummed how it ended.lol
Wen Ross and Sarah Puckett are amazing narrators. They are my favorites to listen to. They keep you pulled in.

Frenemies to Lovers

The bro code that states you can't date each others sisters needs to be destroyed. Chase and Hallie had me biting my nails at times and always rooting for them to get together. This was a very sweet well written love story. It has is up and downs like when working towards a great relationship. I love Wren's voice. It blended so well with Sarah's.

I’m Hooked!

Audiobook review. I am an absolute sucker for bully romance. I don’t know if it’s the angst or what, but like a moth to a flame it pulls me right in.

It was entertaining to see where boundary lines were drawn and crossed. Hailee found it fun to ‘poke the bear’ in essence and her stepbrother had a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas. The situation made it difficult for Hailee to connect with anyone outside of her bestie, much less her stepbrother’s best friend Cameron.

I liked how the relationship was developed. It went deeper than surface level. The conflict was well established and it lent itself to opening up plot lines for secondary characters. I’m definitely intrigued by what’s going to happen with the next couples in the series.

There was one point that was an issue for me. I won’t spoil but I’ll say that it was left largely unaddressed and it involved several acts that are very much illegal, not to mention moral implications. If it weren’t for that, it would’ve been a 5 ⭐️ from me.

The narrators, Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross, did a fantastic job. Their pace, tone, and pitch were complimentary to the story. They were emotive and a great match to the characters.

All in all an enjoyable read. Will continue the series for sure.

My Thoughts on The Trouble with You

Take two amazing narrators, combine them with a fantastic author and you get audiobook magic.

Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross are two of my favorite narrators, I love their voices, so I had an expectation I'd like the performance. And as usual they brought their A-game. I had no complaints and only praise for what I heard. But it was also the words written by L.A. Cotton for them to read that added to the enjoyment.

This is my first book by this author, and boy am I disappointed that I've been missing out for so long. She gave me emotion and characters I could connect with and so much angst. She gave me a plot that was easy and exciting to follow and twists that kept things interesting from start to finish.

Overall this audiobook checked all my boxes. I can't wait for book two in this series and plan to listen to more from these narrators in the future.

The trouble with you

Sarah Puckett & Wen Ross have done such a great job with this audio, bringing out each characters personality. This was the first audio I’ve listened to by Wen Ross, but Sarah Puckett is a favorite.

This book was full of teenage angst & bully romance, it had a great storyline that touched on many general high school problems.

Great storyline

This book has a number of issues that it takes on, bullying, sexism and general high school attitudes to tolerate. Fantastic performance from both Sarah and Wen. They both give personalities to these characters.
