“If you’re a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book.” -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word
He didn’t want to be bad. He just didn’t have a choice…
Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it–she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?
Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected–especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.
Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want most…is to let each other go?
“The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!” –Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word
“This man had a stare unlike any stare. Equal parts intense and intimidating.”
“Rejection was one of the worst pains one could ever feel. Scars healed. Bruises went away. Rejection was lasting. It was a memory you could conjure up at any time and hurt from, over and over again. It never left you.”
“You put food in front of a starving man, he’s going to eat it. No matter what he thinks he deserves or not. It was about survival. And Shayla was keeping me alive.”
“I wanna be yours” “You at my back, stickin’ up for me, and there when I’m fuckin’ terrified…I wanna go to you and I want you tellin’ me I can. I wanna be your, Shayla.”
Wow! What a way to kick off 2018 than with a book that totally knocks your socks off! I never saw this book coming. Not for one single minute. It snuck up on me and grabbed me from the very first page. I was completely, 100% consumed with Sean and Shay’s story. My eyes were glued to the pages and I didn’t want to put this book down……
Bad For You is incredibly well written and is a beautiful second chance romance. This story is one of redemption and it will steal your breath away. As I’m sitting here, trying to type up this review, I am at a total loss. I have no words. I am speechless in the most amazing way…..
From the moment I met Sean, I was dying to know more about him. He was quiet, hard, and didn’t let anyone get close or in. But, I just knew there had to more to this man than meets the eye and boy was I not wrong. Sean’s life has been anything but easy. He has lived through and done things that no one ever should have. This is the kind of man that upon meeting, you just want to protect him with everything you have and bring a smile to his face. He is not perfect, but his motives came from a good place. This man with his tough exterior had the biggest heart. He pulled at my heartstrings and just made me ache. Ache for the life he had. Ache for all that he lost. Ache for all he should have. And Shay was the light Sean desperately needed in his life. Shay is full of life and love. She is hard-working, devoted and will fiercely protect those who are in her life. Shay is definitely the kind of woman you’d want taking your back. She sees the good in everyone and when she meets Sean, she can’t possibly stay away.
I love, love, loved the slow build between Shay and Sean. Their feelings and interactions were so real and and genuine. They didn’t jump into a relationship straight away. They got to know one another. They built the foundation. There was no rushing it. They waited until just the right moment, and then all bets were off. These two together were just magic. They got each other in a way that no one else could possibly understand. Their chemistry was scorching and the pull….UGH!! I just couldn’t get enough. I loved watching their story unfold and seeing them handle all the hurdles along the way.
Bad for You was an amazing read from beginning to end. It stole my heart and turned my world upside down. From sad moments, to funny ones, to moments that had you bursting with joy and swooning so hard, you thought your heart was just going to burst out of your chest; this book had it all. This book was so much more than I ever expected and is a story that will remain with me for a long time to come.
