A best friend’s little sister romance…
Madison Campbell has worshipped her older brother’s best friend, Parker Shaw, for as long as she can remember. So the night before he leaves for the Air Force, she decides he’s leaving town with her virginity. All she has to do is transform her tomboy self into a sexy woman with a bit of borrowed makeup and some creative fashion choices. The results? One drunken kiss that Park doesn’t even remember.
Ten years later, no man has ever gotten close to her heart the way Park did. And now that he’s back, the very unfeminine Madison refuses to blow her second chance. But when her bold attempts to snag his attention (“Oops! Dropped my towel.”) fail miserably, she does something completely insane—she caves to a makeover from the meddling matchmaker in charge of The Happy Endings Book Club. Hey, Park, you want some of this? Madison is about to find out.

Best Friend's Little Sister
I really enjoyed Inviting Trouble, the second book in the new Happy Endings Book Club series, by Kylie Gilmore. There’s more to this series than just the members Happy Endings Book Club. Madison Campbell has loved Parker Shaw for as long as she can remember. Parker came to live in the Campbell house when their dad removed him from a bad home situation. He was friends with all of the Campbell brothers and looked out for Madison. When Parker leaves for the Air Force, Madison falls apart, acting out, not sure how to handle life without Parker.
Ten years later, Parker returns from the Air Force back again to the Campbell household. During that time no man ever got close to Madison’s heart like Parker did. She refuses to blow her chance to show Parker how she feels. Fortunately for Madison, her Happy Endings Book Club sisters come to the rescue. She caves to Hailey, the meddling matchmaker, giving her a makeover and her suggestions of how to flirt. Now the ball is in Parker’s court. Will he want her or will he desert her?
This was a fun and entertaining story with loveable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers and can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I'm SO happy Mad got her happy ending!
I'm SO happy Mad got her happy ending!
I was introduced to Mad in the previous book of the series (NOT necessary to have read that one to enjoy this one!), and I wasn't sure what to think of her. But this book shines a much more flattering light on her.
Park and Mad had a history, and the flashback at the beginning of the book sucked me right in and had me flying through the pages to see if and how these two got reunited.
I, personally, found Mad easy to relate to. At some point or another, haven't we all felt that we didn't quite fit in? I liked her adaptability and willingness to try the things the Happy Endings Book Club ladies suggested to help her snag Park.
This book is written in typical Kylie fashion, with plenty of steam, a storyline that flows steadily and juuuuuust enough humor to make it realistic. Like all of her other books, I absolutely LOVED it and can't wait to read more!!!

Invite Trouble onto your iPad
Kylie Gilmore brings Madison and Parker to life in a way that is going to stick with you. Mad has been pining for Parker for years. He’s literally her childhood hero. And who can blame her? Parker saw her in a way her dad and brothers never did. Vulnerable. Fragile. Important. At 18 he joined the army to prove himself worthy of his adopted family. Now he’s back and Mad is making herself crazy wondering if he’ll ever see her as more than the skinny tomboy he left behind. She’s trying to be so much of what she isn’t in order to catch his eye. Even embracing the newness of female friendships in order to learn to be the kind of woman Parker could love. Their story is heartfelt and funny, sexy and heartbreaking. The kind that will stick with you for a while. And isn’t that exactly what you’re craving right now? I totally recommend Inviting Trouble into your iPad.
