Never trust a man who answers the front door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.

That should’ve been my first sign.

I write about guys just like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic fuckboy.

And I want nothing to do with that.

Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges all my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.

One week is all it took. One week to realize that not everything is as it seems.

One week with the bad boy, and I wanted more.

My Review

“I can’t deny this feeling inside me. It’s raw. It’s pure lust and hunger.”

” Our bodies fit together like two jagged pieces of a puzzle that somehow line up perfectly. We both have our sharp edges, but somehow it works.”

“She has no idea how broken I’ve been over the years, and how she may be the glue that can put me back together.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been on pins and needles waiting for the next release from author Brooke Cumberland. So, when I heard that she was teaming up with author Lyra Parish to write My Week with the Bad Boy, I just knew that I was in for a real treat. My Week with the Bad Boy was more than I ever anticipated and it took my emotions for one crazy and unforgettable ride….

My Week with the Bad Boy follows the story of Vada and Ethan. Vada is just looking for some peace and inspiration for her next novel. What she didn’t plan on was her cocky, arrogant and sexier than ever landlord, Ethan. Vada may write about men like Ethan in real life, but books have nothing on the real thing. And meeting Ethan…..With his panty-melting smile and promises of a night she’ll never forget, Vada never stood a chance. However there is more to this sexy, brooding man than meets the eye. He’s broken and guards his heart. He never lets anyone in until Vada. Who knew that in just one week, your entire world could be turned upside down….

Overall, I thought this book was a lot of fun. I fell in love with Ethan from the moment I met him. He was the total definition of bad boy. Women of Charleston did not stand a chance! With his cocky attitude and sexy good looks, Ethan is a force to be reckoned with. He is captivated by the smart and witty Vada. And is unable to resist the pull….And Vada, she is so easy to love. She is smart and tells it like it is. She’s determined, yet has a lot of trust issues. Ethan is everything a girl could want, and that terrify’s Vada.

Together, Vada & Ethan made for one entertaining pair. Their banter was fun and kept me on my toes. Their sparks and chemistry were totally undeniable and kept you begging for more. And yet they were both complicated in their own ways, that you just couldn’t help but want to get to the truth and heart of them. They are a couple that you just can’t help but root for.

My Week with the Bad Boy is a terrific start to the My Week Series. This book is fun, flirty and filled with heart. It has just the right amount of delicious angst, drama, and sexy good times. I had a lot of fun getting lost in this book and can’t wait to see what these two authors have in store for us next!
