About Big Badd Wolf
Lucian Badd saved my life. He jumped into the freezing water of the Ketchikan harbor after I fell in. He took me to his room, stripped my wet clothes off, and wrapped me in a warm blanket.
That should have been it. I should have hit the road as soon as I could, because I’m a vagabond, a drifter. A homeless orphan with no family and no future except what I create for myself. Which is why getting tangled up with a guy—no matter how tall, dark, quiet, and sexy he may be—is a really terrible idea.
Yet…I kissed him anyway. And that one kiss? It set my world on fire, turned everything upside down.
I know I shouldn’t get involved with him. I tell myself I won’t. Yet, I still get pulled in by him and his seven brothers and their wives and girlfriends—by the concept of family, something I haven’t had in a very, very long time. Something I never thought I’d have again.
Every moment I spend with Lucian turns my present into perfect, and puts my future at risk.

As the second youngest Badd brother, I’ve lived my entire life in the long, broad shadows cast by my older brothers—the burly, bad boy bartender, the Navy SEAL, the trick pilot, the athlete, and the rock star twins. Even my younger brother, Xavier, finds a way to outshine everyone in the room with his unassuming charisma and dizzying intellect. More and more lately, I’ve been asking myself where I fit in.
And then Joss Mackenzie fell into the Inside Passage in the middle of a freak snowstorm, and in so doing, fell into my life. I saved her from the icy water, but can I can I save myself from falling for a girl I know is only going to end up doing the one thing she does best—leave?
It’s evident from the first kiss what the answer is—there’s no saving myself, not from the magnetic appeal of her wild, untamable spirit, or the exotic allure of her caramel skin and long dreadlocks and golden-brown eyes and perfect body. I’m helpless against this attraction.
But as I seek to find myself and my place among my larger-than-life brothers, will I lose my heart to the exotic beauty with walls a mile high and a tragic past?
The series of Badd Brother books have been such an adventure to go on over the past year. Jasinda has phenomenal writing and seeing how she can unravel each story of the 8 brothers to us, but still be original in their content is just pure perfection. It has been so much fun to see bits and pieces of the brothers throughout each story, and then have the anticipation of waiting for their story to be told. Lucian was no exception. I also love that we get to see into the lives of our favorite Badd Brothers and their significant other as well. It’s always fun to catch up with them after their Epilogue and see where they are.
In Big Badd Wolf we finally see Lucian’s story. Lucian left Alaska to explore the world and never thought he’d end up back in his hometown living and working with his brothers. His story begins as he jumps into the river to save a woman in the middle of winter who has fallen in. He takes her in after her rescue in the middle of a blizzard. Joss has also done a significant amount of traveling over the past few years, but for other reasons from Luce’s. When she finds herself snowed in with 8 Badd Brothers and their significant others, she sees something in their family that she’s been missing, a family. Her story is one of heartbreak and is so gut-wrenching and devastating, when Lucian begins to truly know her, their story becomes one of the best love stories I’ve read. He’s so passionate yet stubborn at times, and she’s his perfect other half. Their chemistry is remarkable from cover to cover.
The Badd series continues to grow and with each new book, we get one more piece of their overall intrigue that is the Badd brothers.
