Présentation de l'éditeur
An accomplished lawyer and driven single mother, Ellen Callahan isn’t looking for any help. She’s doing just fine on her own. So Ellen’s more than a little peeved when her brother, an international pop star, hires a security guard to protect her from a prying press that will stop at nothing to dig up dirt on him. But when the tanned and toned Caleb Clark shows up at her door, Ellen might just have to plead the fifth.
Back home after a deployment in Iraq and looking for work as a civilian, Caleb signs on as Ellen’s bodyguard. After combat in the hot desert sun, this job should be a breeze. But guarding the willful beauty is harder than he imagined—and Caleb can’t resist the temptation to mix business with pleasure. With their desires growing more undeniable by the day, Ellen and Caleb give in to an evening of steamy passion. But will they ever be able to share more than just a one-night stand?
Praise for Along Came Trouble
“Knox’s Camelot, Ohio, books showcase just what this author does best, create love stories that feature real people in situations that readers can understand and with which they can empathize. . . . Additionally, she writes absolutely smoking-hot love scenes! Her heroes and her heroines redeem and save each other. Love doesn’t conquer all, but it makes life a whole lot sweeter.”—Library Journal
“One of the reasons I so like [Ruthie Knox’s] work is because [her] heroines are women I personally can relate to. . . . I’ve read Along Came Trouble twice and though I liked it on the first pass, I really liked it on the second. It’s a smart, challenging, sexy, well-written book.”—Dear Author
“Knox writes incredible romance, and this one is no exception. Readers will be mesmerized by the complex relationships woven into her tale. A fascinating hero who defines the word sexy, a heroine who is extremely likable and pitch-perfect dialogue all make this entry in the Camelot series an absolute must-read.”—RT Book Reviews
“Contemporary romance readers will not want to miss the romantic, heart-felt emotion along with all the sexy, steamy goodness Ruthie Knox creates within the pages of About Last Night.”—Fiction Vixen
“A great new voice in contemporary romance . . . hilarious, heartfelt, and hot.”—New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristan Higgins
“I’ll read anything by Ruthie Knox—her books are always sexy, funny, beautifully poignant, and honest.”—Molly O’Keefe, bestselling author of Crazy Thing Called Love

Caleb is trying his best to be stay professional with Ellen but it is getting hard to deny the attraction he feels for her. Caleb has a lot on his plate when he decides he is going to have Ellen, but can Ellen let Caleb in or will she push him away?
I loved Caleb, he is charismatic and drew you in right away. Ellen was a bit hard at first but she grows on you as you begin to understand her back story. Great book, looking forward to the next book in the series.
Also, it was very hard to get into this story: it started off very slowly and the only reason I kept going was because I knew how good Ruthie Knox's other books were. I finally got to the end but it wasn't with a feeling of satisfaction but rather a strong feeling of relief!
Knox's other books were much better than this one; I recommend giving "Along Came Trouble" a miss.
While I wanted to smack Ellen sometimes, I had a lot of respect for how she was trying to live her life. She'd been relegated to second place while growing up with a super talented brother that their mother put on a pedestal. And then, when she married, her husband sort of took over her life, made her dependent on him, then totally stomped all over her. A child resulted from that relationship, but one he wouldn't really know due to his being an alcoholic and therefore having severely restricted access to his son. Not like that seemed to be a big deal to him since he often missed his designated visiting times. Nice guy. Not.
Ellen's next door neighbor is Carly. Carly's husband left her after she became pregnant via artificial insemination. He was shooting blanks, which emasculated him, poor baby. He sounds like a real winner, too. And at some point, Ellen's brother, pop star Jamie Callahan, came to Ellen's to visit, met Carly, and they had a wild fling. It ended when the paparazzi found out which caused an argument between them and Jamie fled back to California.
But Jamie being in the area and having a fling with a pregnant woman just fed the paparazzi's interest, so they're camped out, trying to get the perfect picture to sell. In steps Caleb, who is ex-military and now owns a security company in town. Caleb who is totally opposite of what Ellen normally goes for. Caleb who just wants to keep Ellen and Carly safe, but neither woman wants his help. Caleb who is instantly attracted to Ellen. And Ellen is attracted, too, but she's worked hard to be independent and doesn't want a man coming in to tell her how to live her life, which is sort of what Caleb is doing, but he's not overbearing about it. I *loved* how he negotiated with Ellen. About everything. To me, it showed he cared how she felt, but Ellen had this really thick wall up and it took her a bit to realize he was completely different from her ex-husband. And not only in the looks department.
So anyway, it was a really sweet love story in the end... two love stories actually, but I was more interested in Caleb and Ellen than Jamie and Carly. My heart was breaking for them for a while, but there was a very satisfying ending.
I look forward to #3!
Now Ellen and Caleb (the main characters)...Ellen was wanted her independence and Caleb wanted to protect her. Caleb did not give up on her even though she was extremely difficult. I wanted to smack her and tell her to quit being so mean and open her eyes.
