About The Trouble With Wanting:

Ruby Roberts is heading to Cedar Point to connect with the father who left her behind. Easy conversation with the handsome man sitting next to her isn’t what she’s expecting from her cross-country flight, but it’s not something she’s complaining about, that’s for sure.

Boyd Mitchell is flying home for some end-of-summer relaxation and time with his favorite people – his family. A talkative seat-mate that pulls him out of his shell is the last thing he wants, but he can’t seem to resist her charm.

When Boyd and Ruby end up in the same lakeside town, their banter and flirtation quickly become a steamy fling that leaves them both breathless. Neither of them are expecting to find a romance that has them both reconsidering everything they used to believe about love.

As their time in Cedar Point comes to an end, the two will have to decide whether they want their connection to turn into a real-world relationship, or whether wanting more is nothing but trouble.

Yami’s Bookshelf Review:

The Trouble with Wanting by Jillian Liota is my first-read novel by this author and it is the first novel in the Cedar Point book series. This is Jillian’s 8th published novel. Where has she been hiding all my life? Jillian’s writing is fabulous and she grips the reader by the heartstrings.

This is a perfect summer read. You know what makes me rate a book with 5 stars? A book deserves a 5 star based on the quality of the storyline, and of course, if the book made my heart pitter-patter. The Trouble with Wanting did all of that and more. The story is sweet and steamy with great writing and awesome characters. This author has quickly become a favorite of mine with this one book. Great characters, great story line, great flow and a great setting at a beautiful lake town in California.

The chemistry between Boyd and Ruby was so apparent from the very first time they sit down in the airplane. Boyd is the perfect guy for Ruby, so sweet, attentive, and loving.

I love love this story and definitely recommend it to everyone!

Of course, now I cannot wait for book # 2 , The Opposite of Falling, to be released so I can devour it in one sitting, as I did with this first book of the Cedar Point series.
