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.
This book was emotionally intense. The author did a great job in creating an imperfectly, flawed, complicated characters.
I loved Brock. He was a strong alpha male. He was ready to push when Claire needed pushing , but still able to show tenderness and provide her with the emotional support. I cannot say enough good things about Brock. He was all the things you want in a real man.
Claire, on the other hand, had a lot of emotional baggage. From the beginning, I did not feel she was worthy of all Brock’s goodness. Mainly because he was serious about their relationship and she wanted it stay very casual.
She’s not your usual commitment phobe. **HINT** It is not because her first boyfriend cheated on her. Her emotional issues are way deeper than that. She has REAL problems not easily resolved. There is anger, hurt, and anguish all wrapped up into what has created who she is.
The author gives you a HEA, but she makes you wonder if it will be possible. Honestly, when it was said and done, I felt a little drained because I was so emotionally invested. I wondered how much more could I take. What else could happen?
I did not always agree with Claire’s life choices, but I was sympathetic to her pain. She was dealt a lot of heartache in life and coped the only way she knew how. After reading this book, I could not stop thinking about it for a couple of days. That is when I realized how good this book was. I was not prepared!
The first two books in the series were not as intense. I loved them but they did not touch me like this.
TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. It is definitely an emotional ride. The writing was well done and the characters were real to me.
