This book was everything I knew it would be and completely unexpected in all the best ways possible. It was sweet, swoon worthy, smexy as hell, heart breaking and heartwarming, funny and just a tad bit crazy and filled with characters that I simply want more of in every way possible.
I didn’t think it would be possible, but Brody has nudged AJ out of the top spot as the man I adore more of the Bad Habit boys. I’m as shocked as you are, but it happened. Brody was completely unexpected. This man is all kinds of smexy alpha male goodness with a huge heart, compassionate soul and sense of humor that turned me into a dopey smile fool throughout the entire book.
Grace is all kinds of ‘I am woman, hear me roar’. She’s intelligent, comfortable in her own skin and not afraid to go after what she wants on her own terms. I liked her straightforward nature, but I loved seeing underneath the armour of self preservation she wraps herself in because that woman is all kinds of amazing with her random bits of knowledge and her will, even if a little skewed, to live life to the fullest.
Their journey to their HEA was everything I thought it would be AND a total surprise all at the same time. I loved, despite their issues, how easy they were with each other. Their interactions were fun and felt natural, the sexual chemistry between them was intense ~ you should probably have your B.O.B. within reach ~ and I enjoyed watching as they got closer in every way imaginable. That big, bad twist that crashes into their road wasn’t unexpected and my heart hurt for both of them, but I loved how it all got resolved and where they were at when the book ended.
I enjoyed the various twists and turns throughout the story and was surprised by how a couple of them played out. I loved catching up with Nico, Kat, AJ and Chloe & her parents, but I have to admit that my heart has a very special place reserved for Kenji, I absolutely adore the queen that he is. And then there is Magda. She is just as amazing as Kenji in her own special way. There were no teases as to which of the remaining Bad Habit men will be up on the chopping block next, but I’m definitely looking forward to finding out!

The past she can’t remember. The secret he hides. And a love that’s worth risking it all.
After a devastating car crash stole both her family and her memory, Grace Stanton was left with no past and an uncertain future. Now Grace likes to keep things simple. No sleepovers, never date a guy more than a month, and never, ever fall in love. Which is exactly why Grace avoids Bad Habit’s lead guitarist, Brody Scott, at all costs. The green-eyed, sexy-as-hell musician has “trouble” tattooed all over him, and Grace isn’t taking any chances with her heart.
Brody knows he doesn’t deserve an amazing woman like Grace—her creamy skin, red hair, or that smart mouth that fuels his every fantasy—but there’s something between them that’s more than chemistry. Something real. He’ll just have to convince Grace that he’s worth the risk—and hide the secret that haunts his worst dreams. But when fate plays a cruel hand, Brody’s darkest sin suddenly threatens his last chance at redemption…and the life of the woman he loves.
