Book: Bad Boy Valentine

tl;dr recommendation: This is second chance romance packed tightly into a novella. And it’s done well.

Book Summary:

“Favorite flavor? Well it sure as hell ain’t vanilla. Bend over, Valentine.”

Kate Molina isn’t looking for love; she just needs a reliable contractor to finish her bakery remodel. Hiring the bad-boy convict who broke her heart? Definitely not part of the plan. So what if he’s the only guy who ever gave her the big O, and—ugh, fine—even hotter than she remembered? Toe-curling orgasms aside, it’s way too late to forgive and forget.

If only she could forget the hot slide of his tongue between her thighs…

Eight years ago, Jagger Barnes made the biggest damn mistake of his life, costing him his freedom and the only woman he ever loved. Now out on parole, he’s determined to work hard, stay the f*ck out of trouble, and leave the past behind. But as usual, fate has other plans… starting with his sexy-as-sin, mad-as-hell ex.

One look at Kate’s lush little ass, and Jagger’s more than ready to make up for all those lonely nights…

Love may be naughtier the second time around, but when Cupid takes aim at the reformed bad boy and his sugar-sweet baker, will the arrow finally hit the mark, or is their smoking hot reunion a recipe for disaster?

** A sexy, standalone Valentine’s Day novella with an HFN and no cliffhanger! ** Bad Boy Valentine is part of the Bad Boys on Holiday novella series. Each book is a standalone erotic romance and can be read in any order

Longer Review:

Are you missing Valentine’s Day already? Yea, uh, don’t worry about it. Pick up this lovefest and get ready to swoon. This is second chance romance packed tightly into a novella. And it’s done well.

Both characters are strongly developed and seriously fun. Kate’s a spitfire who is terrified to let Jagger back in – especially when he so clearly shut her out eight years ago. But she can’t help it. When he reinserts *snort* himself back into her life by complete chance, is it a sign? Are they meant to be together or is this just the universe torturing her?

This book is thankfully told from both sides so we know how tormented Jagger is. How he never wanted to leave Kate’s side, how they were so perfect together. This is a sugary sweet high that made me undeniably smile and want to lick….yea, well, I wanted a cupcake. Or something.

Get ready to enjoy this morsel of goodness! 4 stars!
