Publisher's Summary

Dylan Sutton doesn't go looking for trouble, but it always seems to find him. After the devastating loss of his father, he travels across the country to deliver a letter to his dad's estranged best friend. But surely, he deserves a night of relaxation when he first gets to town, right? He sets his sights on the attractive older guy at the bar - except his almost-one-night-stand turns out to be the very man he's in town to see. Oops.

Clayton Turner has a nasty habit of either losing or hurting the people he cares about. After his partner died, he'd decided keeping to himself was the smartest life choice. He doesn't count on trouble stumbling into his life in the form of a sexy guy twenty years his junior...and for that guy to be linked to one of the most painful losses of Clay's past.

Fate steps in and Dylan gets stranded in Bailey Springs. He gets a job, and Clay can't stop himself from trying to help Dylan get on his feet. And Dylan? Well, Dylan can't seem to stop flirting with Clay. He tries, he really does...just about as much as Clay attempts not to like it. They couldn't be more different...or are they? Soon, Trouble and Sad Eyes realize they have a lot more in common than they thought, and once they land in bed together, there's no going back. Moving forward isn't any easier, though. Clay's always walked the straight and narrow, always followed all the rules. But what does he do when the only right path involves looking for trouble?

LOVED THIS BOOK

Loved everything about this book. Loved the premise (age diff/dad's best friend). Loved both the MCs and their instant chemistry. They both have past pain they could relate to and help each other with. They were very different but opposites attract in the best way. Yes there are compromises that needed to be made with this but they really balanced each other out and filled what was missing in each other's lives. I loved the plot and the little teasers that are dropped along the way that make you want to keep reading to find out what happened to them in their past and where they end up. it's a great standalone with a great HEA and no cliffhanger. Although if Riley were to write about Gideon I def wouldn't mind ;)
This is one of my favs of Riley for sure. Cute cover too ;)

Michael does a great job as always.

Ok, but not well rounded

I enjoyed this book overall but would have liked to know more about Dylan, his history, where did he come from and most of all, what happened to his car? Did I miss it? Im a little disappointed this felt very much rushed! Still OK to listen to, but it leaves a-lot of questions to be answered

fate

I always enjoy Riley Hart's books and this one was no exception. I like age gap romances so that was one thing that drew me to this book. I like the connection that they had and what brought them together. While the reasons behind the falling out between Clay and Dylan's dad were understandable, I felt that each of them should have reached out to one another over the years. It seems like most of the blame was put onto Dylan's dad about it, but I just didn't see it that way. That kind of bugged me.
Anyways, Dylan and Clay were both broken/flawed in a way, trying to overcome their own obstacles. While they both helped each other through overcoming their fears, they each had to truly work it out on their own. I liked that about these characters. They pushed each other to better themselves. At the end, I felt like they took a big step backwards instead of growing stronger together, but everything worked out. I would have enjoyed a bigger epilogue though. Wondering if this will be a series...

Realistic May-December romance

I loved this story. The characters were real as was their dialogue. The issues they faced were realistic and well handled by the author and the characters. Dylan and Clayton made a great couple and their love felt real and I knew they would make it. I loved how they complimented one another. And now I want to design men's underwear. ;)

This story was narrated by Michael Pauley. He brought the characters to life and captured Dylan's exuberance and his angst about it perfectly.

Sweet, fluffy romance

Looking For Trouble was a great book. I enjoyed the chemistry between Clay and Dylan. I really enjoyed how Dylan just wanted to be there for Clay. To help him move past his demons.
Michael Pauley nailed the narration like always. He brings such life to the books he narrates.

Cute hot m/m with Twink and Older Hunk

This is a very simple story about two people coming together. Clay happens to be Dylan's dad's best friend. Oh oh. Hence the age difference of 20 years. This story is so beautifully written that they work through the age difference. I just loved Clay's maturity in guiding Dylan on the right path as he continuously blamed himself of things. They are perfect together.

Narration is PERFECT!!! Michael Pauley does an amazing job once again.

This is a cute hot story. Enjoy!

Lovely but/and graphic

Nice, sweet gay romance but also a bit too pornographic to my taste - both in content and narration. Not that I have anything against sex scenes in general, I just find sudden jumps from jump from a heartwarming love story to full-on genital description distracting.
