*Blog Tour & Review* Badd Boy by Jasinda Wilder


I’m Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be… and I’m running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won’t be hounded at every step—an impossible thing to ask when I’m on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia. So, I buy a yacht and hide out in the most obscure, remote, and unexpected place I can think of: Ketchikan, Alaska.

Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that’s six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can’t resist. I mean, who could? He’s a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch.

He’s utterly and deliciously sexy in every way—and oh, so innocent.

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.

All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She’s Helen of Troy—a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over.

It turns out she’s not just beautiful—she’s famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world…

And yet somehow she’s interested in me?


My Review

While I enjoyed all the Badd boy’s stories over the past year, I thought no one could top the twins. However, I was terribly mistaken. This journey Jasinda has taken us on over the past 8 books has been such a fun and exhilarating one, to see each of the Badd brother’s lives unfold one after one and intertwine throughout all the books. You keep getting glimpses of the other characters and it’s truly made this a journey and not just reading another book. While I am sad to see this group of dominate, sexy and brooding brothers in Alaska come to and end, Jasinda couldn’t have ended this in a better way!

In the last book, Badd Boy, we get Xavier’s story. The youngest of the bunch, at just 20 years old, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this story. Young immature males are what immediately comes to mind. However, that is not what we are given! We are given this smart and very intellectual man who surprised me at every turn. His instant connection with Low, or Harlow, was so fierce that I thought my phone was going to catch on fire. Her curiosity in him is a very interesting thing to behold. She is intrigued by him from the moment he rescues her, and their journey from there is sweet starting off, but soon picks up to a point of heart palpitations.

I am truly sad to see this all end, but am so grateful I was able to go on this journey with all these characters throughout the series!
