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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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 🎧

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.

Y/A enemies to lovers

This was a detailed peek into the angst that young people are dealing with as the start to transition away from high school. There was so many directions that the story takes but it’s all pulled in wonderfully by the author. This is my first audiobook I have listened to by L A Cotton and I really enjoyed who she developed the relationship between Hailee and Cameron.

Hailee is an incredible girl who deals with so much, I love as amazed at how well she handled all the bullying thrown her way. And Flick(Felicity) is an amazing friend who really is true, would love to hear her story.

The secrets held and revealed in this book really kept my interest going right to the end.

These two narrators are some of my favourites. And they really shone in their performance in this book. Sarah and Wen have voices that sound realistic for the young adults in this book.

There was one horrible incident that was played against Hailee that I felt that there wasn’t enough done to vindicate the guys who did it to her. And perhaps it will come out in the next book.

Full of teenage angst

Though I've read this author previously - the Chastity Falls series and a standalone - this was my first read in a while by Cotton.

TTWY is definitely full of angst, caused mainly by Hailee and Cameron and the tension between them - romantic and sexual - emanating from the pages.

It's a bit of a slow burn romance because Cameron is the best friend of Jason, Hailee's step brother (who hate each other) and has been a cause of strife in her life for years thanks to their pranks they've pulled on her.

There was a couple of other storylines interwoven within the main one, and they were done with ease. We come to learn of other characters including Hailee's best friend Flick, and Jason's teammates (that I can't wait to read more from!).

Like Cotton's other college sports romances, the writing is seamless, full of emotion and pulls you in from the very beginning.

There was one particular incident that made me feel a bit uncomfortable as nothing seemed to come of it and it was like it was just swept under the carpet, otherwise it would have had 5 stars. I'll definitely be reading the next in the series though!

Depsite Cameron being a total jerk in the beginning he redeemed himself and he and Hailey are just too cute! I loved how the author had him redeem himself and made him work for it. Great sports romance

The Trouble With You

This angst filled tale of bullying, family drama and romance was complex and had me in it's grip from the first chapter to the last one. I liked the intensity that was perfectly expressed by the vocal talents of Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross. To say that I am impressed by both, the writing by the insanely skilled L A Cotton and both narrators is an understatement. They are a great team and Sarah and Wen bring these characters to life.

Yes it’s that good!

Was the first time for me listening to this author and I can’t wait to listen to the follow-up book in the series I am also going to make it my mission to read a lot more books by this author.

I was about five hours away from being done with this book when I reached out to the author to find out if there will be a follow-up audiobook and within an hour as she replied to my message and I think that’s absolutely awesome!

I have to listen to audiobooks narrated by Sarah before and she is definitely one of my favourite narrators, I have been following Wen on social media for quite awhile but today was actually the first time that I listen to any audios and I think he’s moved in my favourites list as well.

Really enjoyed this

Hailee is starting her last year at school, she should be buzzing, but sadly she’s not when she has to deal obnoxious step brother Jason. He doesn’t like her, she doesn’t like him. She doesn’t like his football jock friends either, especially Cameron.
This book has all the teenage angst that I think we have all lived through in one way or another when we were teenager, perhaps not the hate to love relationship though. The rivalry between Hailee and Jason was really well written and I was glad the reason why was included in the book. It makes sense!
Overall I enjoyed this a lot, the narration was great as was the story.

Angsty Bully Romance

This was a refreshing YA/NA romance that was unlike so many that are out right now. It was a mix of sports romance and brother's best friend with lots and lots of bully angst thrown in. I loved the dynamic between the characters and the way we got to see them change throughout the book. The characters and story were unique and had me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen next! I cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series!!!

The narration was amazing! Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross did a great job bringing these characters to life!
