Royal, Texas – Present Day

As the Royal Chamber of Commerce director, it's Lila Jones' job to get events promoted, including the upcoming Soiree on the Bay, a high society festival with music and food. She reaches out to social media influencer Zach Benning for help. With his wide following on social media, he is the perfect person to help promote their event. Zach decides to show up in Royal to see what it's all about, and it's Lila's job to take him to the event site. From the moment they meet, they click—first as friends—then their friendly relationship turns into something else once he starts flirting with her. Zach intends to “makeover” Lila and gives her advice on the tools of the “influencer” trade. It doesn't take long before their lips are locking—and he wants to make love to her.

Zach is only in town for a few days, but what a whirlwind event it turns out for Lila in THE TROUBLE WITH BAD BOYS. He has a “bad boy” reputation as he's known to bed and leave many women. His most recent fling turned out to be a woman he didn't know was married. The husband is harassing Zach, so he figures it's a good idea to get out of California for a few days and lay low until the controversy dies down. Lila, he soon discovers, has a different side to her once she is dressed to the nines. She is beautiful and confident, yet she still maintains that sweet air of innocence. All Zach plans to do is have a fling with her, but their connection is deeper than they expect.

Lila has always lived in Royal, content with her job promoting the town. But Zach shows her a new side of her as a beautiful and desirable woman, as well as how to gain influence on social media. But Zach's life is that of hard-partying, being in the public eye, and hopping from one woman to the other. Will their lifestyles clash, or can they forge a relationship beyond a few days? Meanwhile, the soiree is getting closer to happening. Will Zach prove to be a distraction to Lila while she is supposed to be working at promoting it? What happens when he decides to leave?

A sizzling romance is developing between Lila and Zach in THE TROUBLE WITH BAD BOYS. Can she tame the bad boy? Or will he corrupt her? Find out the answer by grabbing a copy of this fun tale.
