Peek Inside Nothing but Trouble

When the payment terms to a loan shark become horrifyingly unacceptable, Frankie Delenski bolts. When she finds herself stranded in a sleepy Colorado, only salvation is the deliciously hot town sheriff who's determined to arrest her. Wes Malone wants to help, but he's had his fill of drop-dead-gorgeous crazy women, especially ones who don't tell the truth. But as Wes starts to uncover Frankie's real story—and her real identity—he realizes that she's in serious danger. And getting involved means nothing but sweet, irresistible trouble...

With an angry loan shark hot on her heels, Frankie Delenski flees a Vegas gentlemen’s club with one thought in mind: hide before she’s nothing more than a chalk outline. Now on the run…she finds herself stranded in a sleepy Colorado town during a storm. Her only salvation becomes the suspicious and gorgeous deputy sheriff determined to arrest her…

From the get-go, Wes Malone must restrain his lust for this stunning, unpredictable woman in a sequined bra and rely on his instincts as a cop. As he sifts through the haze of lies, the truth about her predicament is like a sucker punch to the gut. She’s in serious danger and getting involved with her means nothing but sweet, irresistible trouble…

3.5 stars for this funny and suspenseful story! I really enjoyed this book. Frankie is on the run from a loan shark. She borrowed $10,000 so that she could pay for her dads funeral. When she can't pay, the loan shark comes after her and she leaves town. On the run, she stumbles into hottie Wes Malon ...more

Fair warning, when you start this book I wouldn't have any other plans for the day. It pulls you in and the crazy ride begins. The characters are amazing and eclectic. There is a evil crime boss, serial killer, dirty cops and one very big and bad sheriff. Lots of snow too.

Two very differently wired individuals are brought together when she (Frankie, a trouble magnet) crashes through the ceiling while he (Wes, a cop with serious trust issues) is taking a bath.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was a pleasure to read. The characters were so vivid that I can picture them in my mind. The main female character, Frankie, is a pistol. She's got a knack for getting in trouble that had me wincing and laughing for the entire book. We ...more

By Bette November 15, 2014

A truly enjoyable read. Lots of LOL moments although poor Frankie has been dealt some pretty rough situations lately. There is so much going on with Frankie you just need to read to get the whole story. Once she meets Wes, life seems a whole lot better. Although they are polar opposites they just fi ...more

This story had a premise that promised an entertaining ride and, for the most part, it delivered. It had all of the elements I love in a contemporary romance — a quirky heroine, a take-charge hero, a bit of suspense, and more than a few sexy scenes.

Between Wes and Frankie, I would have to say that ...more

Frankie Delenski originally worked providing meals for senior citizens but, when funding for that ceased, she worked as a waitress in a much less salubrious establishment! Life has been particularly unkind to her lately. When her father, for whom she has been caring, died she was seriously short of ...more

Frankie works at Glitz, a strip club serving drinks. She borrows money from a loan shark to pay for her dad's funeral. She can't make the payment and now he is pressuring her to make a porn flick as payment. She manages to avoid him for awhile but when he tracks her down at work she makes a hasty ge ...more

By Denise November 17, 2014

This is the first time reading this author but am a sucker for what promises to be humorous romance. Frankie fits that bill right away because she is in trouble and flees in what she was wearing at the gentleman's club but just like the title it is due to trouble. Trouble keeps following her plus wh ...more

3.5 stars! Great book of fun flirting, feisty woman and hot man, suspense and action. I enjoyed reading this book. Wes was a strong male character who got sucked into this vortex known as Frankie. Oh the things she would come up with were quite humorous. He never knew what hit him or what to expect. ...more

Karia’s thoughts…

Where are these guys? Seriously, gorgeous, hot guys who come to the rescue, fix your car, pay for it and put up with antics, vandalism and bed stealing? I do not know these men, Sam I am…I want to meet them and feed them Ham!

Seriously, this one was fast, fun and flirty. The chaste k ...more

The last thing Wes Malone was expecting was for the hurricane disaster that is Frankie to crash into his life. 
He's trying to start over, leaving his baggage behind, he is not interested in the blonde bombshell, or at least that's what he keeps telling himself. 

Frankie is a mess. Nothing seems to go ...more

To start with I'm head over heels in love with the cover. Okay, I'm a sucker for red shoes, boots, heels...well anything in RED. And to top that Ms. Hammer did an excellent job with an opposite attracts love story. I really liked the humor and banter between Frankie and Wes. Yes, Frankie has a knack ...more

What a fun read! I mean, any story that starts with the heroine crashing through the ceiling into a bathroom where a hot cop is taking a bath has to be good, right? The characters were anything but run-of-the-mill, and the witty banter and outrageous escapades between them were entertaining througho ...more

By Tori February 16, 2016

J. L. Hammer can really weave a tale. Her dialog is crisp and the conflicts keep coming. Her characters are deliciously flawed. She has that rare ability to put a reader in a scene with just the right amount of description. And her ability to put herself in her character's head is great. I loved her ...more

By Lynne December 01, 2014

This fun romp pits Frankie and Wes against each other from the minute she "drops in" on him to the last pages. A delightful pairing of a Vegas cocktail waitress on the run and a cop with trust issues when it comes to women. Really enjoyed the read. ...more
