My Review 

In the first four books of Katie McCoy’s Rascals series, readers have been given very little insight into who exactly Dante Delgado is, keeping him quite the mystery man and allowing us to learn who he really is through his own words and actions without the preconceived notions of his friends.

And even though Haley Hayes is Emerson’s little sister and by proxy the rest of the Rascals’ honorary sister, there’s more to her than what others are willing to see, which means that by the time Troublemaker is finished and readers and other characters have been enlightened about who this final couple in the series is, it will be made perfectly clear why Dante and Haley were willing to risk a lifelong friendship and a certain brother’s wrath.

Dante is Haley’s bother’s best friend, which means that for all intents and purposes, she should be declared off-limits, but there’s a mutual attraction between them…an intrigue…a simmering of sexual tension that neither has acted on but it remains nonetheless, so when Dante and Haley find themselves succumbing to their more than familial connection, no longer fighting their non-plutonic feelings for each other, the trouble has only just begun and what this means for their relationship as well as the ones they both have with the other Rascals are bound to get a little messy and a whole lot dramatic until everyone finally sees and understands who Dante and Haley are and just how much their differences make them a perfect match.

I loved getting to know Dante and Haley and the time they had to themselves to get their bearings under them when it came to their new more than friends’ relationship meant that they were the only two people who knew what they were starting and they could get lost in each other’s arms before they had to face their friends and family, and in my opinion, that time allowed them to understand just how much they feel for one another and just how strong they are as a couple.

I so want Haley to be my BFF. She’s passionate…fun…intelligent, and there’s just enough sass and feistiness in her to stand up to her brother and stand her ground if anyone else questioned her choice to be with Dante. Is it possible or even probable that some will take issue with these two being together…absolutely, and will Dante more than likely mess up along the way, not only with Haley but also with his best friends and their perceptions…yep, but being able to witness these lifelong friends turn into something more made it beyond clear that these two could weather the storm, as long as they held on tight to each other.

It’s been so much fun getting to know Katie McCoy’s handsome rascals and the women who tame them; each one has his own unique attributes, bringing an interesting dynamic into their business, and the way these five guys interact with each other and with the women who they claim make for steamy and hilarious reads.
