A five-minute trolley ride, one troublemaking luggage, and two stolen identities. Six months later, two strangers discover they're married. She wants an annulment. He has other plans.

Being illegally hitched is about the only way Chase Lennox would ever be shackled to any woman. But when the multimillionaire playboy finds out he's married to the woman who caused him to lose the biggest deal of his life, Chase decides before he gives his new wife an annulment, she's going to help him close the deal he'd lost.
Jessina Landi has a three-foot radius comfort zone. The last man she let into it cost her a lot more than a broken heart. And the huge debt she owes for that trust, well, it's due. If she takes Chase Lennox's up on his offer, it's sure to cover the bill.
There's an annulment waiting at the end of their rainbow... well, that's if they can get through the next two weeks without consummating the marriage.

I really liked this next book in the series. The verbal sparring between Jessina and Chase is great! The sexual tension between these two- sizzling! The emotions that pour off of them is astounding. I love when a book has me so wound up that one minute I am laughing, the next crying and the next getting mad. This story has it all and then some! I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. This is the second story in the Troublemaker series and they seem to be getting better and better. They are funny and heartfelt and even heartbreaking at times. When Jessina is coming from her Aunt Lulu's funeral and she is on the trolley getting tossed into a very hard wall of man. Chase is trying to keep her upright by holding her to him. When she gets off the trolley, her thinks she has stolen his luggage. But he soon learns that she doesn't have his luggage and that his was gone along with the papers needed for his next client meeting. But things will take a turn for better or worse when Jessina shows up at his office six months later informing him that they are married according to Nevada laws. How did this happen? But when he thinks of a proposition to keep the marriage with Jessina will help him to get what he needs to win over Mr. Caplin. But can he keep his feelings out of it? Will Jessina be just like every other woman he has met, only in it for the money? Jessina has a secret to why she needs the money and when Chase finds out the truth, will he break her heart? This series is so good and I loved it. Can't wait to start Lucky Numbers (book 3). So if you haven't started this series yet, pick them up and enjoy, I did.  **Wicked Reads Review Team**

My Review: 4.7 Star Review - Favorite Places I recommend this book. This book includes drama, passion, betrayal, and heartache. Jessina and Chase shared a trolley ride months ago. Now she is at his office to let him know that somehow they are married. Her wallet, his missing luggage, and someone's idea of a joke. She breaks the news and he wants her so he comes up with a way to use the marriage to keep her for a little while. Chase needs a wife to make a deal so he asks Jessina to stay married for a few weeks to get the deal and then they can get annulled. After she accepts money for the deal he believes she is a gold digger. As the days go on the chemistry pulls them together but he will never give his heart to a gold digger. He finds out a secret about Jessina and automatic thinks the worst and pushes her away. When the truth comes out can he get her back or is it too late to save the relationship? Will she forgive him for thinking the worst or run from the chance of happiness? Can't wait for the next book from Kelly.

Favorite Places by Kelly Gendron is the second book in her TroubleMaker series. The star of the tale...A piece of luggage that happens to have a long lost twin. No, not really, but it does pretty much all begin with the luggage! Jessina bumps into Chase, quite literally, on the trolley from the airport. They both have the same luggage and there's a massive mix up. So massive that they find out six months later that they are actually married and need to get their "Marriage" annulled. Chase has a very low opinion of women. In his own personal experience they are only out for one thing, money. When Jessina storms into his office demanding an annulment he's all on board. Until he realizes that there is something she can help him with before he signs the papers. This was a humorous, romantic story of how your past shapes you and not always for the good. It's a story about becoming strong enough to change and overcome your past in order to enjoy your now and to make a better future for yourself. I'm eager to read more from this author.

This book was given to Book Worms as an Arc for an honest review.  We awarded this book 4 stars.  A review was left by Hazel Hill a Book Worms Reviewer. Thank you Hazel. A review of Favorite places,  A trouble maker novel by Kelly Gendron.  I read A LOT of romance novels and they can all be a bit the same so it was  refreshing to find a book with such an unusual premise. As the beginning of the  story is a little confusing I have had to explain it, this may act as a spoiler  to some but it really doesn't spoil the story to know these things. They are  revealed early on in the book anyway. Jessina Landi is working in a diner and living in a dive when she flies back  from the funeral of her great aunt, carrying a 10th of her ashes. This isn't how  her life is meant to be, she is a trained accountant but trusting a man took  everything away from her, her career, her heart, the small amount of trust she  had mustered and her integrity. On the trolley at the airport she meets Chase  Lennox. ( a note to English readers, the trolley is what we call the Shuttle  Bus, not knowing this caused me to imagine them having some kind of bizarre  bumper car ride on the luggage trolleys at first but maybe that's just me) As Jess and Chase bump into each other on the bus, sexual sparks fly but neither  of them could predict the journey could have such far reaching effects.  In a bizarre twist of fate, Jess reaches down to put her wallet away, placing it  into. Chase's identical luggage. She then departs the bus taking her own luggage  with her, Chase isn't thinking straight that day as he has a very important deal  to complete and on seeing Jess take what he believes to be his luggage he chases  after her, and some what aggressively demands the case back causing Jess to drop  the ashes. It transpires that  Jess has the correct case but no wallet and Chase  has lost his case with Jess's wallet inside. The pair part on bad terms thinking  they will never meet again.  The twist really comes when Chase's stolen case with Jess's wallet inside falls  into the hands of pranksters who decide to use the pairs ID's to get married,  leaving the two temporarily unaware that they are married to each other. This  comes to light when Jess has to deal with her inheritance from her aunt.  Jess approaches Chase for an annulment but after a sexually charged meeting Jess  is involved in an accident and Chase takes it upon himself to  care for her. He  claims this is because he has a business deal he needs her help with but can't  deny the attraction he feels for her.  Chase needs Jess, he needs to come across as a family man for a business deal.  Having a wife at his side will be the perfect cover. But he wants her too, he  wants it to be for just sex but his heart isn't listening. Chase has some major  trust issues and sees all woman as money grabbing gold diggers. When some  information about Jess's past comes to light it breaks Chase's heart to think  that she isn't as good as she seems and he was right to mistrust her all along.  Jess needs Chase, she needs the money he is offering to play his wife for a  little while longer, but she needs him for something more too, she has some  major issues with intimacy stemming from a traumatic event as a child and she  feels so good when in Chases arms she feels Chase can help her overcome this but  she gets more than she bargained for when it isn't just her body he soothes but  her heart too.  The couple have so many misunderstandings and miss so many opportunities to see  the good in each other. They are both good people who want the best for people  they care about, it just takes a little while to see that in each other but it's  so sweet when they do.  I really likes this book, so many romance novels are a little to perfect, things  happen to easily for my liking. I felt this book was more real for the setbacks  the couple suffered. The attraction between them was so much more Intense for  being denied. It was a good, easy read with a lovely feel good ending and I award it four  stars.  Thank you for your amazing book and I look forward to reading more from you in the future. :)
