Badd to the Bone by Jasinda Wilder

One look at Brock, just from the neck up, and I get a case of the dropsies—as in oops, I drop to my knees.

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.

My Two Cents

4 "Earning it" stars

Here's the thing... the issues I had with Mara in the last book (Badd Ass), I didn't have with Claire. Go freaking figure!

Both women knew they were sluts.
Both women felt they had reasons for being sluts.
But only one of them (ahem... Claire) actually sold me on it.

If a man sleeps with everything that walks, he's a slut. Same goes for women. So it's not like I'm sitting here saying one without calling the other out. I think it's gross from all sides. However, I felt like I could understand Claire better than I could Mara. Claire knew she lacked self-respect. She felt so poorly about herself that she willingly settled for anything. She was punishing herself, which was sad because I could see the good person she was. She didn't need to be so hard on herself (and really, she just needed professional help) and Brock was the perfect guy to show her how different life with intimacy and value could be.

I loved how the author made it clear that Claire needed to work on herself. That she needed to learn to love herself, forgive herself, before she could try to love someone else. I also loved how devoted they were to each other, both before and during their separation.

My heart went out to these characters and I felt that Claire's journey was difficult, with her happily ever after both hard-won and much-deserved.
