head1(Straight from the book)

Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.

One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?

For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

Bad Things is about Tristan and Danika, and their train wreck of a love story. This series can be read as a standalone, or with the Up in the Air series.

Bad Things is a full length novel, at roughly 105,000 words.
This book is intended for ages 18 and up.
head2(This is going to be short since my review on Goodreads got deleted.)

I really like how Danika and Tristan met, they were in the most unexpected path on meeting each other. I like the development of things between them. But I didn’t expect the ending. Damn.

After reading the book, I could not explain what I felt. It was a roller coaster of being ecstatic, hurt, jealous, sad, guilty, in love, etc. BUT IT WAS REALLY HOT AND SEXY! Gosh. I didn’t expect it to give so much details of sexiness. Tristan and Danika made up a great couple!

head3“Bad things were going to happen if we spent too much time around each other.”

“Sex turns women into nagging psychos, and it turns men into straight-up assholes.”

“He smiled his best smile, the one that ruined me for every other smile in the world.”

“I guess I didn’t want better. I wanted… just what I could keep.”

“If you think I’m letting you go easy, you’re in for a shock. Buckle up, sweetheart, one way of another, I’m getting you back.”

“Bad things were supposed to happen to bad people….”
