Book Review: “Badd Motherf*cker” by Jasinda Wilder

Hello!

I have finally decided to go back to the beginning of the Badd brothers series. In May, I saw that this and the fourth book, Good Girl Gone Badd on Amazon for free (and then on Prime Day, I got the second book in the series for free as well!) and I didn’t expect to really enjoy the books this much but they are very funny and steamy that apparently I can’t get enough of so I’m just going to read until they don’t make me happy anymore.

From New York Times bestseller Jasinda Wilder comes a sexy new romantic comedy.

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.

So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…

And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.

***

Eight brothers, one bar.

Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?

I kinda think so.

Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.

I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.

I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it—at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…

Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination—and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.

I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.

But I did

Jasinda has done a very good job at getting every detail to the reader, since this was the first book in the series, she made it her mission to not only create eight brothers but made sure they were all different and pleasing to your imagination’s eye, but my favorite part of how she went to describe Sebastian was to compare him to Henry Cavil, and it all started to feel very right in my brain but I just can’t necessarily picture Henry with tattoos, so technically I’m still working on it.

It’s funny, when I got the books, I just wanted to read more about these tattooed burly men. Well, according to Sebastian’s descriptions, he, Zane, Brock and Baxter are the huge, fully built, and look like it would be effortlessly to do bodily harm to someone type of guys, while the other four are lean, not a lot of tattoos, with longer hair. It wasn’t until we start hearing about Dru and her story of how she got to Alaska and ultimately met the entire Badd clan in a matter of three days that I saw the book itself in a different light.

You’re so bad. So bad for me.” “Spell it with two Ds and you’ve got it right, honey.”

As fucked up as Dru’s life was at the moment she arrives in Alaska– and it is, trust me!–it quickly does a 180 in a matter of seconds. I could say they both fell in love at first sight and I don’t necessarily believe in that shit and I still think that’s the best way to explain that moment in the bar. It was at that moment for me too, that I fell head over heels in love Sebastian too.

Sebastian sounded very intimidating in the fourth book, but now that I’ve read this one, my outlook has changed because he is an absolute sweetheart, and the fact that we get to see a big man like Bast be emotional once his brothers start showing up, it was so heartwarming! Since he is the oldest, he has really done a lot to keep the roof over his aging brothers’ heads growing up and then learn about Dru and her backstory on top of that, it was a very fulfilling story!

Book Review: “Good Girl Gone Badd” by Jasinda Wilder

Hello!

You know ever since I decided I wasn’t going to feel guilty about reading erotica/romance this year, I’ve really taken that idea to heart considering I read three books in the same genre back-to-back. I don’t necessarily regret it but yikes! I also made a little goal to myself that I would love to read five books for May and I didn’t make it until I finished This Is War but I was committed to it and was so excited and proud that I was able to complete it, which is why I decided to publish this review a little earlier than I originally planned. I didn’t think anyone would mind either!

I’ve never read a Jasinda Wilder book before. I have seen her books on my feed, mainly Amazon and the site to track my reading goals (before I switched over to Goodreads in 2016!) but I was never attracted to them; I can tolerate BDSM but not a lot of it and her books always tend to show up on those type of lists so I would just glaze over them but as you may know by now, I have a real weakness for free e-books, and this and another book in the series are on my Kindle but I’ll explain all about that down below..

Let’s get into the review, shall we?

Evangeline du Maurier is the definition of a good girl. Attending Yale, raised with the best tutors and etiquette instructors, she’s expected to toe the family line and be a trophy wife for a future senator. But when this good girl takes a quick getaway to clear her head, she finds a whole lot more than she’d bargained for. She finds herself in the arms of a bad boy. 

Baxter Badd. 

Big, hard-drinking, and as rough and demanding in bed as he is out of it, Bax may be the baddest brother yet..

Over the years I’ve seen a lot of drop dead gorgeous covers and you always hope (and sometimes pray) that they can live up to what the cover is basically trying to telling you, but there have been some duds and there is nothing more disappointing than a cover for a romance to be such a let down. Fortunately for me, this wasn’t one of them! I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into with it but I was very surprised how quick I dove into it and considering I found it one day before Scarlett St. Clair’s newest installment in the Hades x Persephone series “A Touch of Malice” released and completely ignore it for like three days (and nights!) after waiting since March! I’m still shocked I did that!

I was free to do what I wanted. No one had any expectations on me. Least of all Baxter.

I didn’t know what to expect in the beginning and was a bit worried about the introduction of the two characters, because in a way, it sounded a bit odd that a woman like Evangeline would even come across a situation she had and I just didn’t think it was relatable or whatever. I still don’t but the way Baxter reacted was fine. I thought it would be a way a guy sees a woman anyways! I liked the pair and was quite taken with how Bax acted especially to Evangeline in certain scenes, the one in the diner was interesting because I never saw him in that threatening way as one might feel while coming across someone like Bax in the first place. And then, when he is explaining to her about what she wants and basically tells her to make those choices for herself, was nice and if I’m honest, very educational at the same time!

If you are not familiar with the other books in the series, especially Badd Motherf*cker, Badd Ass, and Badd To The Bone as you will properly be respectively introduced to each of the couples mentioned inside, but you don’t have to. For the most part, the story is about Bax and Evangeline but the Badd family is an important aspect of the plot and reason to the eight brothers. I have the first book but not the other two and I would love to read them as well but I don’t have any plans in reading about the rest of the books. Personally, I think basing the entire series on these eight guys is a bit much, it’s like the literature version of the K-Pop bands, for some odd reason people seem to think you can an unlimited amount of people in group and everything would be fine with it. Since I started with this book, this is the last Badd brother in the original lineup for me. I will hopefully have the review for BM sometime later next month, which is tomorrow. How crazy is that?!

Have you read “Good Girl Gone Badd” or any of the other books about the Badd brothers by Jasinda Wilder? Do you have a favorite brother? Are there any other books by Jasinda you think I should check out for the future?
