Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?

Jenny’s Review



This was such an enjoyable read. This book has the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. Throw in some drama and a bit of angst and you get Bad for You.

Sean is your bad boy that has been recently released from prison and has a sad and bad past. He’s covered in tattoos with a hard exterior no one is going to break through. He’s been working at Whitecaps, for almost a year, trying to get his life back on track, saving money up to redo and finish a house he just bought. He’s had his eye on a loud, sassy, and full of life waitress that he knows he doesn’t stand a chance with. No way is he good enough for someone as sweet as her. So when she starts to come on to Sean, he shuts her down, doesn’t even let her have a chance.

Shayla is polar opposite of Sean. She’s a ray of sunshine, she’s full of happiness with some sass. Everything Sean wants. She’s beautiful, whole, will do anything for anyone, and see the good in EVERYONE. So can she break down that wall that Sean has built so high? Can she work her magic powers to give him the smile and love that he’s so worthy of??

This was a wonderful story. It shows that everyone deserves a chance. Reading this one, I clutched my heart and did a lot of “awwwwww”ing. Definitely one I’d recommend to my friends and another new to me author that i definitely want to read more of!!!
