Passion and politics feed more than one vice in Addicted to Trouble.
Iris loves Northside Grill as much as an old friend, but if her customers keep leaving for the competition, she may be forced to sell. Her best option? To run for a vacant seat on the City Council and use the position to instigate change.
Her hot-as-hell rival has the same idea. And the owner of Lincoln’s Pizza might stoop to bribe voters with his addictive crust and delicious secret sauce to win the election.
Lincoln craves competition. When Iris challenges him in the local political race, he’s intrigued.
A woman as fine as Iris shouldn’t trust a man like him, but Lincoln can’t resist twisting his interest into a provocative game. Will his high-stakes gamble pay off? Maybe time and a few rides on his Harley will tip the odds in his favor, because Lincoln definitely isn’t a sure bet.

This book is the first book I have read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised . I was sucked in by the second chapter and I started to really care for them . There are some twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages . There were laughs and tears , trust me there are a couple of scenes where I had tears running down my cheeks . There were a few spots in the book that I felt that should of been a little shorter and it kind of fell into the trap of girl gets boy and then something horrific happens and girl runs off and boy finally gets a clue and runs after her . I just think that it is a trope that seems to be way over done It didn't stop me from reading though the author does a good spin on it though . I would recommend this book for your summer reading list . Make it one of your end of summer reads for the pool
