I Knew You Were Trouble by Paige Toon




 Life as the undercover daughter of a rock god isn’t going to be easy. How will Jessie adjust to her boring life again after spending her summer living it up with her dad in LA? With tough decisons ahead (and not just choosing between two hot boys), can she cope juggling her two very different lives?

Summer may be over, but Jessie’s story is just beginning…


I Knew You Were Trouble is the second Jessie Jefferson book and is just as great as the first book.

This one follows straight on from where the first book ended.

Jessie is back in England with the Jefferson’s after Johnny received some news about his dad.

Life is definitely different for Jessie now she’s back. For one, no one knows where she’s been staying while in LA but pictures are starting to emerge about Johnny’s secret daughter who’s living in England. Jack is still on her mind but he hasn’t even been in touch since she’s been back and Tom is very keen to pick up where they left off. Her heart is torn between two hot guys and who can blame her?

When news comes out about who she really is, her life becomes a whirl wind of paparazzi and kidnap attempts and everyone thinks it would be best if Jessie went back to LA.

But going back means seeing Jack and seeing Jack means her lust/love filled emotions will be back in full swing, despite her being with Tom.

She manages to keep her distance from Jack but she suddenly becomes the lead singer of his band and well…. sparks fly. She doesn’t want to cheat on Tom but she can’t deny what her heart is telling her.

Her relationship with Johnny is a lot better and she’s finally apart of the family and she really loves it there. She still misses her mum but they take the pain away and she knows that when she goes back to England for the Christmas break, she has some major decisions to make. Some that are going to change her life for the good…

The second book is just as brilliant as the first one and just as summery and full of swoon filled moments.

In this book Jessie has finally been accepted by the Jefferson’s and now she’s known as Johnny’s daughter. Even though the UK paparazzi are having a field day with her. She’s finally in a relationship with Tom but when she goes back to LA she knows that distance isn’t a good thing. Especially as she’s in the same place as Jack. She has to make a lot of decisions in this book and I honestly felt like the ones she made were the best ones. There are some more heart-warming scenes between her and Johnny and the touching moment when she finally calls him Dad. Jessie seems more grown up in this book. I suppose the lifestyle she now has has made her grow up a bit. She seems more settled in LA than she does in England, even though she does miss her friends.

Jack in this book is more humble. He’s not as womanising as he was in the first book and you can tell that he really does have feelings for Jessie, even if he doesn’t know how to deal with them. He’ll always be a rocker like Johnny but I think Jessie could tame him down a bit. He opens up to Jessie a lot, even though he doesn’t particularly like it much. He’s committed to Jessie, even though she has a boyfriend now. Yeah, we love Jack. That’s all really. Jack Jack JACK ❤

Johnny is encouraging in this book. He supports anything Jessie wants to do and helps her with her stage fright when she has her first gig in Jack’s band. He’s like the dad he should have been to her if he was given the chance. You can tell he really loves Jessie and he gets all emotional when she calls him Dad for the first time. Ahhh Johnny is just beautiful. We love him too.

Agnes has more of a role in this book and you can see that she’s going to be a really good friend to Jessie, even if Jessie is in love with her brother! (She’s Jack’s sister) I like the friendship she has with Jessie and I can’t wait to see more of their friendship in the third book.

Overall this book was just as brilliant as the first and like the first one I was sucked in from the beginning. It had the same tones as the first book and the writing was summery and full of life. This book was more about finding yourself and being accepted and it does a great job. Jessie is a great character and sometimes you do forget she’s 15! She’s like your best friend in a book and I love reading about her.

I can’t wait until the third book!

5 out of 5 stars
