A group of women walk into a bar…
Sounds like the start of a crude joke, right? Yeah, well, the joke's on me because I'm investigating the gorgeous one in the heels with the great ass. Jensen Montgomery.
Now I'm treading that area between right and wrong, good and bad, where sin and honor meld to become gray. Not that I haven't been here before. Hell, I’ve made my career in the gray. I never hesitate going to battle when my gut tells me I'm right. And right now, my gut—among other things—is speaking loud and clear about Jen Montgomery.
She’s in a bad situation. Not just bad—deep and black and ugly.
And I’m about to make it worse. She just doesn’t know it yet.
Warning: This author is also a mom who runs a PG-13 home. This book is not PG-13. If you are under the age of 18, do NOT pick up this book. This author doesn’t enjoy mama-drama of any sorts. Do her a favor and walk away.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Every time I pick up a new book from Ms. Asher I caution myself that it couldn’t possibly be better than the last but it’s just as good—each and every single time, Bad Situation was so good, I just don’t have enough stars to rate it with.
Although we’ve met both main characters in previous books by the author, this can be absolutely read as a standalone, though if you haven’t read them all yet, you’re sorely missing out.
Jen is in a whole lot of trouble and Eli finds himself being the one to get her out of it, even if he’s part of the team investigating her. With a strong and instant attraction that they both try to fight at first, these two have a lot of hoops to jump through before being able to be together. Now, as I received an ARC copy of this and this author really doesn’t want any spoilers, that’s all I can say about it.
I absolutely loved everything about this book. Jen was funny and sweet, but also had a will of iron and loads of gumption. She did not let anyone walk over her and could seriously butt heads with Eli like a pro.
“I can talk to anyone I want to about cocks,” I counter. “You haven’t even kissed me.”
“But I’ve had my hands on you. You were wet for me earlier – don’t deny it. I had tangible evidence.”
Eli was swoony in every way possible. Alpha, bossy and hot as molten lava, he had a protective and possessive streak a mile wide and he put all his considerable skills to good use. Repeatedly.
“What I really want to do is drive south, cross the border, find a hut on the beach and forget all the shit swirling around. That might be considered abduction by some but, to me, right now, it’s sounds nothing short of utopia.”
Eli and Jen’s chemistry was absurdly hot and I completely adored them together. There was not one thing I did not enjoy about this story. It had humor and silliness, crazy families, sweet lovely romance, steaming hot sexnanigans, action, suspense and more plot twists than you can imagine. Every time I was sure I knew what was going on I got my assumptions shoved up my a—nose.
“Who are you?
“I’m trying to be a normal guy who’s not an FBI agent, but who still likes your ass”
In less words: do not miss out on this book. It doesn’t get better than Bad Situation and I can hardly wait to see what comes next!
