As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.
Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.
It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Falling for the Bad Girl is an opposites-attract love story. Regan comes from a family of thieves, Nathan is not only a second generation police detective, but he is the one who put Regan behind bars. By rights they shouldn’t feel any attraction, though three years of fantasizing over each other shows how chemistry doesn’t always work as one wants.
Our story starts the day Regan comes out of prison a new woman set on never, ever having to step into that place again. While she gets on with her plans, Nathan is not in a great place. His father is gravely ill and he doesn’t have much time left, and he’s obsessed with a now ex-con… the fact that he follows her to the hotel where she’s spending her first night as a free woman should be a wake-up call for him… Luckily for us, it isn’t.
Regan can’t believe her eyes when the man she’s been crushing on despite her best efforts shows up at her hotel. She should hate his guts, and she does as he is the one who put her behind bars, but one night to live the dream can’t harm anyone, can it?
What begins as a night for Nathan and Regan to get their fantasies out of their systems, turns into a month of hot, steamy, crazy-monkey sex. When that month is over, they will each go their own ways, as a relationship between them has no chance in hell of ever succeeding, right?
I really liked Regan, while she was perceived as a bad girl, once we get to know her we realize not everything is as it seems. She was loyal, sweet, caring and still tough. Nathan was a yummy policeman in jeans and stubble, with a filthy mouth and some serious skills. He was bossy and sexy, and I wouldn’t mind getting frisked by him.
“Regan Malloy, I want to screw you until you can’t walk, until my dick is so sore I don’t even want to think about sex, and then I want to screw you some more.”
I loved Nathan and Regan’s interaction and how their “relationship” and their feelings for each other developed. That’s not to say there weren’t a time or two where I wanted to hit one, the other or both of them on the back of the head when they’d refuse to communicate.
Falling for the Bad Girl was a fun, light and seriously sexy story I enjoyed immensely and I can’t wait to get the stories for Regan’s roommates and one or two of her brothers’ wouldn’t be unwelcome either.
