REVIEW: Badd Boy by Jasinda Wilder

REVIEW: Badd Boy by Jasinda Wilder

Of course IMO the Best Badd Brother was saved for last. Now I have loved this entire series and from the very first book I knew that Xavier's book would be the one that I wanted the most. I instantly loved his character. The youngest of the Badd Boys, Xavier for me was completely different from the rest of the boys. For one he didn't have the Alpha instincts that the rest of them had but there was something about him that I loved. One would call him a genius and while that is definitely true for me he was something more which I can't find the words for because I am not a genius. Intellectually sexy, those are two words I think of when I think of Xavier. I couldn't wait to see what Woman would be the one to capture this man. He's what you would definitely call educated, brilliant and nerdy. He seems very unsure of himself around the opposite sex and at times is almost robotic when he speak to you. He definitely isn't a social butterfly that's for sure. One might think that may ruin his personality but for me it did the opposite and it was so refreshing. Of course the Woman that captures the last standing Badd Brother couldn't be more opposite, her job requires her to be in the limelight. But they clearly connected. She could just be herself around him, there were no expectations. Their story is sweet and awkwardly adorable at the beginning and as this book goes on I will tell you Xavier Badd surprises me a bit but the chemistry eventually heats up.

Such a great read. I absolutely loved the Badd Boys and have gobbled up every single book since the beginning.


I’m Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be... and I’m running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won’t be hounded at every step—an impossible thing to ask when I’m on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia. So, I buy a yacht and hide out in the most obscure, remote, and unexpected place I can think of: Ketchikan, Alaska.

Instead of a peaceful vacation, however, what I find in Ketchikan is trouble. The kind of trouble that’s six-plus feet of nerdy hotness I can't resist. I mean, who could? He's a genius with no idea how attractive he is, an enigma of contradictions: awkward yet confident, fascinating and flirtatious, yet aloof and evasive of physical touch.

He's utterly and deliciously sexy in every way—and oh, so innocent.

I can recite all of The Iliad and The Odyssey in the original Greek. I can do advanced mathematics in my head and memorize entire books with ease. By the time I graduated high school I had been scouted by several international soccer teams and recruited by think tanks, the NSA, and the CIA.

All of which is totally useless when a woman like Harlow Grace is standing in front of me, trying to talk to me, flirting with me, touching me. She’s Helen of Troy—a woman with a face that could launch a thousand ships, a woman wars are fought over.

It turns out she’s not just beautiful—she’s famous. A Hollywood sex symbol. A superstar known all over the world…

And yet somehow she’s interested in me?
