Borrowing Trouble by Stacy Finz

Book Description

In the beautiful mountain town of Nugget, California, staying out of the limelight is easy, but staying out of love is a bit more challenging…

Back in Los Angeles, Sloane McBride was a great police detective, but after she uncovered corruption on her own squad, the job became nearly impossible. In the bucolic hills of Nugget, she can start to imagine a life after all that, where she keeps her head down, does her work, and doesn't bother anyone. But her delicious next door neighbor isn't going to make it easy to keep to herself…

Brady Benson's wildest dreams came true in LA—but they were paired with a living nightmare. As executive chef of a searing-hot restaurant, he was lauded, adored… and then found himself caught in the sights of a lovelorn stalker. Now, laying low in Nugget, he finds his own heart ensnared by the beautiful new cop with her own reasons to start over. 

Neither Sloane nor Brady came to town looking for love, but it seems to have found them. Trouble is, so have their pasts. And they'll have to stop hiding from both if they hope to come out the other side together…

Starting Over (Book 4) Review HERE
Getting Lucky (Book 5) *read, but only left short review on Goodreads and Netgalley 
Borrowing Trouble (Book 6)

Borrowing Trouble is the sixth book in Stacy Finz's Nugget series.  You do not have to read this in order to enjoy Sloane and Brady's story.  As readers, you get glimpses of previous couples and get to catch up with their happily-ever-afters.  I enjoyed Borrowing Trouble SOOO much more than Getting Lucky (I DID NOT like Lucky at all!!) and was excited to read more about Brady Benson and what he was hiding from.    

Brady Benson was a hot chef back in LA, but that all changed when he developed a stalker.  At the advise of the cops, Brady decided that it would be best to lay low for a while.  He ends up in Nugget and gets a job at the local B&B, Lumber Baron.  But even with distance between him and his stalker, he keeps looking over his shoulder waiting for the other show to drop.  And then the beautiful Sloane McBride moves in next door.

Sloane McBride loves being a cop in LA and being in a position to help people.  But after discovering and speaking out against a group of corrupt cops, her days as a member of the LAPD are numbered.  Deciding to leave LA behind, Sloane makes her way to Nugget with the hope that she can make a difference on their police force and escape the threats back in LA.  

Sloane and Brady become fast friends and begin fighting an attraction to each other.  Each have their reasons, but soon they can no longer fight the pull they feel for each other.

But all to soon, each of their pasts come back to haunt them.  Will their new relationship able to survive them?            

Rating: 4 out of 5
