Bad Boy by J.C. Reed and Jackie Steele

Release Date: February 23rd, 2016
Full length, 350pp


I should have seen it coming.
Sexy? Handsome? Trouble? Check, check, and check.
Is he messing up my life? Hell yes.
All the signs are there: he is a bad boy.
Even his name is a lie. Too bad I married him. I can’t wait to get divorced. Does this make me sound crazy?
I know I should avoid him, run as fast as I can. However, when a harmless misunderstanding lands me in a foreign prison cell, my dear, lying husband is the only one who can get me out. Crap. I shouldn’t accept.
But how to say no to trouble when said trouble is the one who makes me fantasize all the dirty things he could do to me?



If you have started this series, you are not going to want to stop before reading this book! If you haven’t read them, that’s ok too… this book can be read as a stand alone and you won’t miss a beat.
J.C. Reed and Jackie Steele continue an adventure for Chase and Lauren you don’t want to put down. I was lost in the pages of this book and did not put it down once until I hit that last word. I took a deep breath and sighed. This is what dreams are made of… well, kind of.
When Lauren signed the agreement she had no idea of what awaited her. But just a day after the fake wedding to Chase, she found herself alone and in Mexico. But she needed this time and space. She needed to distance herself from the love she felt in her heart. She knew the truth. She wasn’t even sure who she was really married to or what would make him do something like this to her.
Obviously, the money was a big factor, but to actually go through with the wedding was too much. She was hurt, she was angry and she was trying to find a way to deal with the cards she had been given.
But it is always important to remember that though you think everything is one way, there is always another possibility. This one however, was just something she could not fathom. Why would he do this?
Sure Chase is hot, sexy and not at all the person Lauren thought she was involved with. I mean, he lied about everything else. A relationship built on lies will never work. Even if she wishes for something more with him.
But Chase isn’t content with giving her space. He knew he had a lot of explaining to do, but he and his brother were just in too deep. How was he going to get her to understand that he went into this with one thing on his mind but something shifted? Can he even do it? The odds are so against him. He knows this. But he also knows he wants this and needs her.
When it comes right down to it forgiveness is going to be a big factor between these two. There is so much they don’t really know, or want to admit. But it makes for one amazing story.
The tangled web of lies unravels around Chase but he can’t give up. I spent a lot of time in this book wondering is Lauren was going to pull her head out of her ass and look at Chase and listen to what he was telling her. His deception was about his family and honoring those he loved. But in the middle of it all, there was Lauren. Could she forgive all of it and would either of them actually admit what they felt?
This series, these authors… always on the top of my list. I wouldn’t have it any other way. When a book can break you and fix you and maybe destroy you and still find a spark deep inside so filled with love, you just gotta make them go-to authors. I loved every moment of this book. The drama, the angst, the hope and the lies. It may have been one crazy story from the beginning, but I was right there with them during the journey. I had to know how it ended.
Worth the read? Definitely. I will be reading this one again for sure. Well done ladies, well done!
