Genre: NA/Contemorary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2018
Moving to River’s Edge was supposed to be a fresh start.
Away from chaos.
Away from bad influences and worse relationships.
All I wanted was to give my little brother more of a chance than I ever had.
It should’ve been simple.
I didn’t count on my transgressions following me.
And I definitely didn’t count on meeting Dare.
Tall, tortured, and tattooed.
A Lost Boy through and through.
Falling for someone like him was asking for heartache.
But I was a sucker for punishment.
I had a routine.
Eat, work, sleep, repeat, only ever doing the bare minimum to keep up appearances.
I kept my circle small and my guard high.
I spent years making sure I didn’t repeat the mistakes of my past, forming an impenetrable layer of ice around my heart.
Then Logan showed up in my town, in my tattoo shop, testing my patience along with my self-control.
She was fire and I was ice.
I should’ve stayed away.
But I had been cold for far too long.
I was so looking forward to the next installment of Charleigh’s Bad Love series after I read Bad Habit and the Yard Sale novella. And Bad Intentions totally did not disappoint! Dare and Lo’s chemistry was totally off the charts. I loved how their individual struggles brought them closer together and in the end, that created a deeper understanding between the characters.
Bad Intentions was a reprieve to your typical romantic love story since it narrates the gritty complexities of real-life struggles. Here we have Logan who is trying to have a fresh start with her younger brother in River’s Edge. She’s had a rough life and moving away from home seemed like the best option for her to survive. Then she met Dare. Another lost soul with a tortured past. It might seem cliche but they are truly meant for each other.
I loved how Charleigh Rose gave glimpses of Dare and Lo’s vulnerabilities and struggles but didn’t dwell on the negativity of their lives. Bad Intentions is truly one great work that will give readers the right amount of romance that will be a perfect reading material over the weekend.
