    Perfect opposites attract love story!

    Troublemaker was the perfect opposites attract love story, and by far, my favorite of the entire series! Since first meeting Dante in Rascal, we’ve known little to none about him except how secretive and mysterious he is. His rugged and masculine sex appeal has been tantalizing readers since book one, and we’re finally given his story and what really lurks behind his stoic façade. Hayley we’ve also known since book one. We’ve known her as Emerson’s little sister. Feisty, compassionate, with a quirky sense of humor, Hayley is the completely lovable and energetic best friend everyone wished they had. Dante and Hayley’s relationship is very different compared to the relationships of the characters in the previous books. Having been in each other’s lives for years, their interactions with one another have built an atmosphere of sexual tension and conflicting emotions and actions. Their undeniable attraction towards each other forces them both to realize that the harder they resist their chemistry, the harder the possibility of falling in love. But where one is willing to risk it all for love, the other can’t accept that they will ever deserve that same love in return. I’m incredibly sad this series has come to an end, but I’m super excited for what’s to come from the author. Her stories are fantastically written, with equal parts humor and heart. I’ve been a forever fan since reading Royal Player and have loved every book that has come since then. Can’t wait for more! 5 Stars!

    What a finale!!

    Rascals I have been so looking forward to Dante and Hailey's story! We got to see glimpses of them in the first books in this series. Dante and Hailey's fights were like foreplay.  And who doesn't love a mysterious, broody guy? I loved Hailey's stubbornness, her lady balls.  To go after what she wants. I wanted to shake Dante and tell him "Yes! Yes, you are good enough!!"  He has such a negative view of himself.  He has a beautiful soul and Hailey could see that.  She pushed him to see it too. This is the final book in the Rascals series, it was a beautiful story to wrap up the series.  To read about everyone, to read their happily ever afters. This was a story I couldn't put down.  It was fast paced, page turner that gave me what I wanted.  This was a fantastic series and I really enjoyed them!  I can't wait to see what's next from Ms. McCoy!

    I truly believe Troublemaker was the best!

    Dante was absolutely perfect! I could not believe the Rascals series are over. I felt like we just started! Even though you can read each book as as stand alone, you definitely want to meet the rest of the guys. Your heart will swoon over each one. Dante was our quiet and mysterious hero of the story. Haley seemed to much of a socialite and I was not sure if I was going to like her. As the story went on and the pages were turned ( or swiped in my case ), I fell for these two hard! You never knew what these two had going on until now! Troublemaker ending has you dreaming ahead.

    Sad to see this series end.

    Troublemaker is the fifth and sadly the final book in the ‘Rascals’ series by Katie McCoy and as I said in my review for book 4, (Soulmate) she kept the best for last. I always knew Dante and Hayley’s story would be fantastic and I wasn’t disappointed/ We’re had little tidbits and tasters from both of them in the previous 4 books, Dante is afterall, best friends with the other guys and a part owner of the bar. Hayley is Emerson’s younger sister and for that reason alone, Dante has tried to keep his distance. He’s been cold and distant, arrogant and callous with her feelings for a long time and in this book we finally find out why. Hayley always knew Dante was hot, but after getting to spend some proper alone time with him, she found there was more to this ‘bad boy’ than she realized. She also discovered she had feelings she’d been denying for a long time too. I always knew there was a deeper side to him but it was Hayley’s more pragmatic and enterprisings side that was the real revelation. She’s a hard worker, even if it’s not in paid employment. Her endeavours help a lot of people. She was sweet and kind, but with Dante she found a whole new side and it brought the best out in her. She helped Dante to find his inner sensitive guy, the one he’s been hiding for years. Dante has a troubled past, and is wary of getting too close to Hayley and breaking the no.1 rule of the ‘bro-code’, plus he comes from the wrong side of the tracks, all things which make him feel undeserving of such a sweet, giving soul like Hayley. But, now that’s she’s found her man, Hayley isn’t ready to give up so easily and wants to tell the world and her brother just exactly how happy they are together. Try as he might, the off the chart chemistry they share is hard to fight. These two were a volcanic match and each scene burned with their attraction. I loved the sassy banter and the wicked times they shared. Seeing these two get their HEA was the best ending to this brilliant series. Hope we get to catch up with all five couples again in the future.

    Convoluted conclusion

    Disclaimer: ARC received in exchange for an honest review Katie McCoy is back with the last entry in her series about a group of friends and bar owners. Pairing Dante and Hayley, Troublemaker is the final installment in Katie McCoy’s Rascals series. While Troublemaker is a solid effort in this series and on-brand for McCoy, it lacks some of the charm of its predecessors. Whereas, Emerson and Chase were easy to like and root for, Dante’s dark, broody nature often had him running hot and cold. Because of his temperament, he tends to comes off as brash, bordering on mean, which sometimes makes him inaccessible to readers. Hayley, while well-intentioned, is often petulant, pushy, and not a character that I was able to easily embrace. Although the couple had some great moments, overall, as a reader I struggled with how easily their relationship developed before dissolving into unnecessary drama. Having Emerson serve as the obstacle in Dante and Hayley’s relationship felt cheap and the angry exchange between Dante and Emerson at the story’s climax didn’t necessarily feel true to either character. McCoy spends four books talking about the great friendship these five men share, only to spend one whole book talking about how little the rest of the men know about Dante. Furthermore, McCoy also frequently repeats throughout the five books how overprotective Emerson and the rest of the guys are of Hayley, but there is little action to ground these declarations in reality. Rather, it seems as if this narrative was pushed simply to achieve tension and set-up conflict for this storyline. None of this is to say the book is bad, but rather, these are the issues that, for me, make it more unrealistic and less endearing to readers. The storyline often manages to feel lackluster and melodramatic. I did appreciate uncovering a softer side to Dante; his relationship with Bull and his determination to build a place for kids with less-than-ideal homelives were really wonderful aspects of his character. The struggle to rise above one’s past, to be worthy of love and tenderness, to be enough, is universal and these are the qualities that redeemed Troublemaker. While long overdue, I also appreciated McCoy giving Hayley attributes and interests of her own. The strength of the relationship between Dante and Hayley was the unwavering support they showed each other as they branched out and developed their personal and professional interests and passions. Despite its flaws, the book was an easy, engaging read that will provide a satisfactory completion to the Rascals series. Although Troublemaker is not the strongest installment, McCoy stayed true to the series and certainly put out a product that will delight her readers. Though Troublemaker can be read as a standalone, readers who’ve enjoyed McCoy’s previous works, specifically the Rascals series thus far, will appreciate this conclusion.
