4 So Good to be Badd CROWNS
I absolutely love the Badd brothers. I cannot recall a family with so much charisma. All of them are completely unique, and yet they all have this charm and sex appeal and are, honest to God, good men. I honestly wish they existed in real life.
Badd to the Bone, specifically, follows Brock and Claire as they struggle with some heavy family drama right from the get-go. Claire is dealing with the tumultuous and dysfunctional relationship with her family, specifically her dad. Now, Claire is a very complex and destructive character; however, readers will fully understand her self-destructive nature as details about her past are revealed. Readers are also going to like her honesty. She never tries to hide who she is, and she is very vocal about her eventual obliteration of relationships that matter to her. Jasinda Wilder, though allows the reader the really see how she heals, and not at the hands of the hero, but of her own volition and determination, which makes her a pretty awesome heroine. Brock, does help her a great deal in the novel, though. He is completely supportive, understanding, and loving, and he is constantly trying to give her what she needs, even when it destroys him in the process. True to the Badd brother nature, this man is exceptional, physically and emotionally. He also phenomenal in the bedroom, but there is a sensitive part to him that is discussed in the novel, and readers will enjoy this side of a hero being exposed in a romance novel.
Throughout the book, these two are put through the ringer. The story almost immediately starts by throwing them into a pretty high stress situation. Her candor about who she is and what she desires, at least outside of the bedroom, sets up the conflict of the story, and the revelations throughout the course of the book, of course, blow their world up. The road back to reconciliation is long and arduous, but ultimately rewarding for both. The one aspect of the story that I wish would have been resolved a tiny bit more is the conversation of their sexual needs in the bedroom. It is discussed frequently, but I would have liked a more clear answer as to how that whole situation is resolved between them or for Claire. It will not ruin the story for you, it was just a question that left this particular reader wondering.
At the end of Badd to the Bone, Jasinda Wilder has set up the next book, releasing in August, and I cannot wait!!! That one chapter has me so excited to get my hands on the next Badd brother, while being able to revisit all of my favorites!
Badd to the Bone is a sexy, angst filled romance with a sensitive and supportive hero and damaged but lovable heroine. Readers of the series will enjoy the next installment, and, if you are new to the series, this is a great place to start, as they are standalones. Either way, the Badd brothers are definitely a family who should be sitting on your eReader.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Brock Badd is everything except bad. He’s sexy, sweet, strong, and every other good thing I never thought I wanted in a man. I always thought I needed the real bad boys, the ones that screw you senseless and pull your hair and aren’t there to talk about it in the morning.
I’ve always been a one-night stand kind of girl, and sometimes I wouldn’t even stick around for a full night. Brock was supposed to be a one-night stand—that’s how it started out, at least. Only, what was supposed to be a fun one-time-only hookup with a hot local guy ended up with me discovering Brock’s potency six different ways by breakfast.
That was all it took. One night with Brock, and I was hooked. But hooked doesn’t mean ready for a relationship.
That’s what he wants. And deep down, I’m starting to fear that’s what I want too.
I’m just not sure I’m ready for it.
I mean, he’s the literal epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, plus he’s a pilot…with a six-pack and perfect hair and a smile to melt me from the inside out. How’s a girl supposed to resist that? I couldn’t. I can’t. I’ve tried, but I keep going back for more.
I’ve got it bad, real BADD.
