Review: Causing Havoc by Lori Foster

Title: Causing Havoc
By: Lori Foster
My Copy:
BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Orphaned and torn from his sisters as a boy, sexy extreme wrestler Dean "Havoc" Conor gets a letter revealing how much his siblings want him back in Harmony, Kentucky. To stop his sister from marrying a sleazeball, Dean finds himself teaming up with her pretty-but-smart-mouthed friend Eve-who's heard of Havoc's reputation and doesn't need some hunk trampling on her heart. Now all Dean has to do is protect his sisters, win Eve over, and expose a devious criminal. And he thought winning the heavyweight belt was hard.

I have read other Lori Foster books and have loved them but this book did not fall in that category.  I feel as if the plot was common and then to throw the readers off, Foster ended the story with a twist that just didn’t seem to make sense to me. 

Havoc and Eve were good characters but they weren’t great in my eyes and I just had a hard time really rooting for them to have any kind of relationship.  I rooted more for Jacki and the guy she runs into (I won’t say his name so it can be a surprise) than Havoc and Eve.  I also didn’t see any appeal that Roger brought to the relationship with Cam, Havoc’s sister.  He seemed like such a jerk throughout the whole book but she still loved him.  Roger never treated her nicely for her to love him.  That was confusing for me.

Also, I get where the money went but I feel like it could have been a little more thought out than where it ended up.  Like, maybe someone was sick and that is where all the inheritance went instead of the aunt spending it all before the girls realized that they had trust funds. 

I don’t know…
