Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.
One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?
For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.
R.K. Lilley is one of my favorite writers and boy does she deliver an amazing story in Bad Things! I could not get enough of Danika and Tristan and I am anxiously awaiting more of their story.
There is no insta-love here. The author takes the time to build a deep friendship between Danika and Tristan but they do have an undeniable chemistry that they cannot ignore. Danika has a long list of strict rules for relationships and Tristan, well, let’s just say that Tristan falls into the bad-boy category which Danika is trying to avoid.
Danika is totally honest and open with Tristan. He is who he is, and in his own way, is honest with Danika, too. If you have read the Up in the Air series (not necessary for this book but an amazing series), you know that Bad Things takes place several years before James Cavendish meets Bianca, and that Tristan gets clean and sober. You also know that something very tragic happens between Tristan and Danika.
There are several fantastic plot twists that I did not see coming in Bad Things. There are also several well-developed side characters with great stories. But Bad Things focuses on the EXPLOSIVE attraction and oh-so-steamy sex between Tristan and Danika and the author really knows how to deliver some heart-pounding sex scenes! Writers, take note: this is how you write contemporary romance!
“Oh, I like this one, I thought, watching his throat work as he swallowed. A sexy man who liked sarcastic women…”
“You feel so good, sweetheart. I swear nothing’s ever felt better in my whole fucking life.”
I could not out this book down. I absolutely loved the characters and I want to know much more about Tristan and Danika’s journey. Bad Things is must-read book by an amazing author. Enjoy the ride!
