These Bad Boys books are great for sneaking in a quicky hot romance read without feeling like you're cheating on the TBR pile too much! I never used to care much for novellas, but in this case they work just fine. :)
That said, these were a bit more tame than usual - a little closer to regular romance stories. Still fun, but the boys weren't especially bad! I liked the third story the best, although that one was the least "bad boy"-like. Recommended for fans for fast fluff!
Youll love three sizzling novels featuring delicious bad-boys in one satisfying volume! In Bringing Up Baby by Lori Foster, Gil discovers that hes a dadthanks to a fling years ago. He wants to do the right thing for his daughter, even if it means ending up with Anabel, whos totally wrong for him...but something about her feels so right. In The Wilde One by Janelle Denison, Adrian loves extreme sportsbut risks with women are another matter. When he unexpectedly shares a weekend with Chayse at his mountain cabin, they both enjoy a sensual adventure. In Going After Adam by Nancy Warren, Gretchen is a private investigator trailing Adam, a two-timing husband. Soon she discovers hes really singleand a corporate whistle-blower running for his life. And hes taking Gretchen with him on an escape filled with danger...and sexual temptation. Explicit sex, language.
I like Chinese food but wasn't thrilled with this book. It has three stories: "Bringing Up Baby" by Lori Foster-which was the only one I read and liked-"The Wilde One" by Janelle Denison and "Going After Adam" by Nancy Warren.
Let's start with Bringin Up Baby by Lori Foster. I felt the premsis was a little hard to believe. I felt this was the weakest story of the three. Ok, Anabel's roommate has a baby with Gil that he knows nothing about until she is forced to turn to him becaus dead baby mama's parents are attempting to take the baby from her. Gil, an up standing fellow, wants his baby. The catch is that Anabel comes with the kid. Gil has always been attracted to her, but thinks she's too wild for his straight laced life. She is not his idea of the June Cleaver mother he always thought he would marry and have children with. He decides to give it go, plus he gets sex. They bond and he eventually realizes she is what he needs. I did not now this was the second in the Watson Brothers Series. The first meeting and the breakfast scene with Sam and Pete was funny. I can say that this story made me want to read the other two brothers'stories. My major aside from storyline believabilty was there was not enough room for Gil to change his attitude toward Anabel. I would have to give this story 2 stars.
The second story was The Wilde One by Janelle Denison. This is also a story that is part of a series, the Wilde Series. This is Adrian's, brother of Steve and Eric, story. I thought it was the most tender of all the stories so far. That is not to say the sex wasn't hot, because it was 4 chili peppers hot. And I felt it was the most emotional one. This one had the twist of the female, Chayse, chasing Adrian. In the previous 3 stories, the males chased the women. At the end, Adrian did have to do some chasing, but not much. And once again we have Mia and Cameron baiting each other. Steve, the male lead in the 5th book included. This story broke with the pattern of the male buying the female clothing which was in the previous 4 stories. I would give the sex scenes 4.5 stars and the story 4 stars.
The third story was Going After Adam. This was not part of a series, but a stand alone story. Intially, this story is what took me so long to finish the book. I found it rather boring. I thought the premsis was more suited to an 80's action movie than a romance novel. The saving grace and what helped me to finish the story was the old people on the tour bus. They were so very funny. And I mean laugh-out-loud funny. I love how they all pitched in for the wedding and how they pitched in again to subdue the bad guys. While I understand that when one's life is in danger, emotions are heightend, but again, I had a hard time believing Adam and Gretchen fell in love that fast. I thought this was an enjoyable read with the AARP cast of characters. I would rate it 3 stars.
