This book can be read as a stand-alone.
I'm Danny Boy. No surname needed. Even though Shay Donnelly, the drummer for Rogue, is my baby brother, everyone in the whole of Dublin--hell, maybe even all of Ireland--knows me as Danny Boy. It's all I've ever been called.
But Ms. Amelia Patterson, my therapist extraordinaire, thinks it's time I go back to formalities. She says it's only right now that I'm closing in on forty years of age and am trying to improve myself. I have no illusions over the ways in which I've manipulated and hurt others just to get by, but something has changed.
What makes the difference this time? How do I know I won't slip back into my old ways again? That's what Ms. Patterson wants to know.
So, I'll keep on with the sessions, both to please my brother, and because I'll need them more than I know. Especially once *she* enters my life and not only tests everything I've fought for, but threatens Rogue by stirring up the past.
It won't be easy--my life never is--but now I've got a dog named Roscoe, a therapist named Ms. Patterson, and an unexpected, but welcome, new band of brothers backing me. All I need to do is stop looking for trouble.
Looking For Trouble takes place in parallel with the timeline of Finding Rhythm (Rogue Series #4), so, while it can be read as a stand-alone, incidents from Finding Rhythm will be referenced. Fans of the Rogue Series will be happy to see that all the guys - Gavin, Conor, Shay, and Martin- make appearances in this book.

- Tangled Up In You: Gavin McManus is lead singer for the rock band Rogue. Struggling with inner demons, he funnels his angst into both his music and his first love, Sophie. When paparazzi exposes his family secret, Gavin spirals into depression and worse. Can he right things before he loses Sophie and his band?
- Playing At Love: Conor Quinn is the gorgeous guitarist for the rock band Rogue. Trying to right the wrongs of an affair, he rushes into an engagement with his supermodel ex-girlfriend. When an old flame causes him to second guess everything, will he make the right choice and finally stop playing at love?
- Hitting That Sweet Spot: Shay Donnelly is the dependable but introverted drummer for the rock band Rogue. When his split allegiance costs him his girlfriend, he ends up at a breaking point. It’s the point at which he must finally find his own life’s rhythm and win back his love.
- Finding Rhythm: Martin Whelan is the "content with his lot in life" bassist for the rock band Rogue. But after years of a steady, routine marriage, his life is irrevocably upset. He'll set out on a journey of epic highs and lows, and have to ask himself how much he's willing to sacrifice to find his rhythm.
