Review: Falling for Trouble (Librarians in Love #2) by Sarah Title

The riot grrrl and the bookworm--just the pair to get the whole town talking...
Liam Byrd loves Halikarnassus, New York. He loves its friendliness, its nosiness, the vibrant library at the center of it all. And now that Joanna Green is home, the whole town sizzles. A rebel like her stirs up excitement, action, desire--at least in Liam.
Joanna never thought she'd have to come back to her dull, tiny fishbowl of a hometown ever again. She almost had a record deal for her all-girl rock band. She almost had it made in L.A. And then her deal went sour and her granny broke her leg . . . and now here she is, running into everybody's favorite librarian every time she heads to a dive bar or catches up with old friends.
He has charm, he has good taste in music--and the sight of him in running shorts is dangerously distracting. But when he loves her old town and she can't wait to check out, their new romance is surely destined for the book drop...

Expected publication: June 27th 2017 by Zebra Shout

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  It is expected to be released later this month.

While this is the second story in a series, and I had not read the first, I did not feel that I was missing anything.  In fact, normally when this happens I can usually tell who the first story may have been about yet in this case I could not.  It is safe to say that this can be read as a stand alone.

I felt that I had a lot in common with Joanna.  Like her, I grew up in a small town that I could not wait to leave.  Like her I left as soon as I finished high school, in my case for further education.  And lastly like her, I now find myself back in a small town.  In my case it is to escape the noise of the city, in hers, it was due to her plans not working out as she wanted them too.

I enjoyed the dynamic between Liam and Joanna.  While she didn't know where her place in the world was, he knew exactly where he wanted to be.  A classic case of opposites attract, albeit with the same taste in music.  I have to admit that I liked the fact that Liam was nerdy, yet hot.  Exactly my type of guy.

While I found the ending a bit extreme, I enjoyed the journey of Joanna and Liam as they each learned about themselves and each other.  I am not sure if there will be another edition to this series but I will be sure to keep my eyes open for it if there is!
