Big Badd Wolf
Review - Big Badd Wolf by Jasinda Wilder
Another Badd Brother read and another Badd Brother loved. I can't get enough of this series. Lucian is by far the quietest and maybe most mysterious Badd Brother. He's been relatively quiet in the previous books and I Jasinda has done a great job in building up his book because well we just don't know too much about him. In Big Badd Wolf we finally get to know all about Lucian. At first he is still that aloof, sexy man. Quiet, speaks a few words here and there, really I would say the loner of the family. Let me tell you that basically the first chapter of this book gets me engrossed in it immediately. The circumstances surrounding how Lucian and Joss met is definitely a I need to know more immediately with Lucian jumping in to save her after she falls into the water. What happens from there is a lot of push and pull between these two. Joss has a story as well that is definitely heart breaking while at the same time it's endearing because the things she goes through well I have no idea how the hell she managed. You'll find out what I mean when you read this book. The chemistry between these two is definitely there but their personalities and their own issues for lack of a better term do create a bit of a road block for them. It's how they get through it that I loved about these two. They really were the perfect match. Of course we get the Badd Family throughout this book because well you need to have all of them make appearances. They grew like weeds and their crazy is something that I have completely fallen in love with. And ermagahdddddd there is one more brother left to go. While I'm excited for Xavier, I'm also not wanting it to end. I'm not ready to let go of these Badd Brothers and the Badd Sisters. Thank god for rereading. This series is great and if you haven't read them yet go start now. Each book has given you something different while at the same time something familiar if that make sense. If you like some comedy, chemistry, fun and witty banter and a family that you find yourself wanting to visit again and again then this series is a definite must read.
Lucian Badd saved my life. He jumped into the freezing water of the Ketchikan harbor after I fell in. He took me to his room, stripped my wet clothes off, and wrapped me in a warm blanket.
That should have been it. I should have hit the road as soon as I could, because I’m a vagabond, a drifter. A homeless orphan with no family and no future except what I create for myself. Which is why getting tangled up with a guy—no matter how tall, dark, quiet, and sexy he may be—is a really terrible idea.
Yet…I kissed him anyway. And that one kiss? It set my world on fire, turned everything upside down.
I know I shouldn’t get involved with him. I tell myself I won’t. Yet, I still get pulled in by him and his seven brothers and their wives and girlfriends—by the concept of family, something I haven’t had in a very, very long time. Something I never thought I’d have again.
Every moment I spend with Lucian turns my present into perfect, and puts my future at risk.
* * *
As the second youngest Badd brother, I’ve lived my entire life in the long, broad shadows cast by my older brothers—the burly, bad boy bartender, the Navy SEAL, the trick pilot, the athlete, and the rock star twins. Even my younger brother, Xavier, finds a way to outshine everyone in the room with his unassuming charisma and dizzying intellect. More and more lately, I’ve been asking myself where I fit in.
And then Joss Mackenzie fell into the Inside Passage in the middle of a freak snowstorm, and in so doing, fell into my life. I saved her from the icy water, but can I can I save myself from falling for a girl I know is only going to end up doing the one thing she does best—leave?
It’s evident from the first kiss what the answer is—there’s no saving myself, not from the magnetic appeal of her wild, untamable spirit, or the exotic allure of her caramel skin and long dreadlocks and golden-brown eyes and perfect body. I’m helpless against this attraction.
But as I seek to find myself and my place among my larger-than-life brothers, will I lose my heart to the exotic beauty with walls a mile high and a tragic past?
