Review Tour~~Bad for You by J. Daniels
“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
Christina’s 4.25 Blush Review
This was my first book by J Daniels. I don’t know why I waited so long to read a book by Daniels. It will not be my last. HOT DAMN I loved this book!
This book consumed me. A combination of good writing, a refreshing storyline, well- timed laugh out loud moments and likeable characters made this book pretty much unputdownable for me. If that’s even a word. I just made it one.
The hero, Sean, was a tortured soul. One who was so broken, I didn’t actually know whether or not he could heal. The heroine, Shayla, was a cute and spunky little spitfire who honestly seemed like a girl I would want to be friends with. This is a RARE find for me in a story. I dislike most heroines I read about. I really loved them together. Their romance was slow to build and filled with insecurities. Perhaps a little too insecure on Sean’s part which I’m not used to but given his past, it was understandable. I read tons of books in which the hero is saving the heroine and convincing her of her worth and place in his life or lifestyle. It was so refreshing to read a book where the shoe was on the other foot so to speak. I love the ways in which Shayla saved Sean from himself and convinced him of his worth. It was so beautiful to witness!
I would be remiss if I did not mention the sexy times in this book. The STEAM in the book had my cheeks flushed on numerous occasions.
The only thing that kept me from rating this book higher was the way the hero spoke. It was very reminiscent of a KA over-the-top alpha male who sounds like a caveman. This is usually a pet peeve of mine. That being said, the story was so strong in other areas that the dialogue wasn’t as distracting to me as it usually is.
I should mention that this is book 3 in the Dirty Deeds series. I haven’t read the first two books. Bad For You is definitely a stand-alone and I can’t wait to go back and read the other stories as well. I’m totally invested in the secondary characters already. Can’t wait for more J Daniels
