Bad For Her
Author: Christi Barth
Release Date: Oct 3,2017
SA Today bestselling author Christi Barth launches a sexy new series about three bad-boy brothers in Witness Protection who are about to learn that going good is harder than they thought…
Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.
As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.
Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.
*I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion.*
I stepped out of my sports romance bubble and tried this bad boy (hahahah yes, I went there) and I was NOT disappointed in the slightest.
The romance (because duh, that’s what we’re all here for) was so sexy. The banter is great, the chemistry was there from the start and I 100000% bought into it, and their development as a couple is so amazing to follow. I’ve read a lot of slow burns lately so the intensity and speed at which this grew was a great change of pace. Mollie and Rafe aren’t a flame…they’re a whole freakin’ bonfire!
I loved the rest of the characters too. Mollie is a great female lead and Rafe’s brothers are hilarious although annoying as brothers tend to be. About halfway through the book I hopped over to Goodreads to make sure that there will be companion books with them. The rest of the citizens of the town are also a great cast of secondary characters; it ended up having a bit of a Stars Hollow feel to me.
Overall this was an amazing romance. I loved the pace, the characters, the romance, and the steaminess. I devoured every page and was super disappointed that it was over when I got to the end.
