~Book Review~ “Where Bad Girls Go to Fall” by Holly Renee

My Review:

Staci Johnson is a  bada$$ tattoo artist, one night stand enthusiast and secret romantic at heart.  She doesn’t do relationships at all. But when she starts hanging out with her best friend’s brother, Mason one night she can’t seem to back away from what she knows is a really bad idea.

Mason Connor is a player.  He’s all for love them and leave them.  But, for the first time in his life, he’s actually enjoying hanging out with a woman for more than just sex.  ANytime he tries to get close, though, he’s pushed away. Knowing she’s worth it, Mason decides to play the friend game.  He can totally play it cool until Staci admits she wants more than friendship from him, right?

Staci’s got baggage from her past that she ran from three years ago.  She hasn’t told anyone in her new life about her history and she plans on never putting herself in the position to be hurt like that again.  There’s no way she can let go of the baggage and fall for Mason no matter how much she may secretly want too.

The harder she pushes Mason away, the more they both fall.  But, Staci’s past is back and it’s time to come clean about why she ran in the first place.  Will Connor be able to understand why Staci keeps pushing him away or will this be the truth that comes between them for once and for all?

Kudos, Holly Renee!  I was so engrossed in Staci and Mason’s story that I read it in one sitting!  I loved that Staci comes off as such a tough chick but is a secret romance reader and terrified of scary movies.  Mason may have been a player, but it’s obvious to everyone, including him, just how quickly Staci has him wrapped around her little finger, and he couldn’t be happier wanting more from her if she can only give it to him.  

I loved that we see Livy and Parker from book one again and that Livy offers to be her brother’s wing man to help him win Staci’s heart!  He also has a fabulous tiny wing man in his adorable neighbor Flynn. The dinner scene with Mason, Staci and Flynn is ridiculously adorable and says so much about what this couple could have if they could trust one another enough to move forward!

There are some smokin’ hot scenes between Staci and Mason that will have you fanning yourself, plenty of laughs, angst and suspense dealing with Staci’s past and Mason’s heart taking a beating and a surprise wedding in Vegas . . . 5 Stars!  And, one thrilled reader who learned that Where Bad Boys are Ruined is coming soon!

Nothing good came from listening to my heart.

It was careless and irrational and became way too invested when I read a romance novel.

So I put her under lock and key.

I only had a few rules, and I always stuck with them.

1. Never get attached.

2. Always run before the feels become contagious.

3. No matter what, under no circumstances, never fall in love.

He was a playboy who ran by the same set of rules.

What we had together was fun, it was hot, and it was temporary.

Until he screwed everything up.

We were never meant to be each other’s happily ever after, but the harder I tried to push him away, the further I fell.
