Bad for You (J. Daniels)


He didn’t want to be bad. He just didn’t have a choice…

Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it — she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected — especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?

“The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!”
— Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word



OMG people, this book was AWESOME!!!! I’ve read a few books by J. Daniels by now, including the two previous ones on this series, but this one was definitly my favorite. And that’s down to the characters, 100%!

If you haven’t yet read a book by J. Daniels, what are you waiting for? Her writing is amazing.

So, let’s talk about the characters. Shayla was such a unique character, I just wanted to wrap her in a tight hug and never let her go, because she was beyond awesome. She’s just so GOOD. She wants to be the best for everyone, and she puts everyone’s happiness in front of her own. She’s also hilarious and fierce. I love this girl to bits.

And Sean, oh boy… Sean had me sobbing during the prologue. And I wanted him to see his self worth so badly, but it was a journey, and I was so happy when he got there. He was such a good person, and he deserved so much more out of life.

All the yeses to Shay and Sean together, because they were perfection. They were supportive and understood each other, and did their best to be there whenever. They fit, and it was beautiful.

Glad about all the friendships on this book, especially the one between Shayla and Val. It’s not common to get a girl getting along with her guy’s ex, but it made the story that much better. Though I would have liked to see a bit more of the gang’s involvement.

Also, I hope Daniels is not sweeping a certain pairing’s romance under the rug, because I would be severely disappointed.

So, a fantastic read, by a fantastic author, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment.
