ARC BOOK REVIEW
So I really bloody loved “Bad Intentions” like so so much.
It was my first book by this author and I was really impressed with its ability to reel me in and keep my attention on target throughout.
This has to be up there as one of my top contemporary reads of this year.
It was such an unexpected gem, taking me completely unawares and I am immensely glad I got the opportunity to experience this great piece of romantic fiction.
So I really connected with both of the main characters here.
Finding both Lo and Dare, to be in themselves such inspiring and down to earth individuals that I couldn’t help rooting for them all the way.
First “Lo” herself, she had such a grown-up responsible attitude to life.
A total product of her upbringing.
Having to be a mother to her brother and take on such big responsibilities at such a young age has definitely shaped her character, in a very positive way indeed.
Then there is Dare, his past still impacting on his present and future.
Closed off in a way that is not healthy he is totally unprepared for the whirlwind that is Lo entering his well-ordered small-town life.
Lo looking for a job to support her family wanders into Dare’s Tatoo shop and as these two connect for the first time, the match here is lit sparking a red-hot attraction that is as inevitable as it is hot.
And these two sure do set the pages alight with their raw chemistry.
There is nothing major shocking in “Bad Intentions” narrative this is more about love, life, trust and loss and two lost souls connecting on a much deeper plain.
There is plenty of drama and humour here also to keep the reader engrossed, alongside a fabulous supporting cast that does a great job of also keeping things fresh and interesting.
This is told in dual POV and at heart, it’s “Bad Intentions” ultimate simplicity that actually calls to me and though part of a series, this, in my opinion, can totally be read as a standalone.
I did and followed along easily.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “Bad Intentions (Bad Love)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
