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.
OMG WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO READ THIS SERIES?!!! This book freakin kicked my ass and I don’t think I moved from my reading spot until I finished. I devoured it—Bad Things was like my addiction and I never wanted to quit. Jesus—R.K. Lilley wrote a masterpiece!!!
I have a thing for bad boys. I seem to be a magnet and the more angst a book has the more I love it. It’s what I live for. The feeling of my heart being ripped out of my chest, my stomach hurting, gripping the kindle til my knuckles turn white—my all time favorite kinda book. Well, I found the freakin motherload!!!
And Tristan… he is DUCKIN HOT AS HELL!!! Even though he was a jackass, I LOVED him!!! Check him out!!!
Danika’s had a pretty rough life. But she is strong–one of my favorite females of all time. She doesn’t do random hookups, doesn’t do one night stands. She’s a relationshipy type of girl. She knows she shouldn’t get involved with another bad boy, but who can say no to Tristan. Friends, blah blah, yeah right, sure see if you can make that happen when being in a room with him makes you physically combust. No way in hell is that happening. But she tries—she seriously enjoys his company. So into the friendzone they go.
TRISTAN… oh my FUCK I want you in my bed, in the kitchen, in the living room, in my pool… name the place and I will be there with bells on. You are a freakin fantasy!!!! Aside from the “don’t do relationships” he is perfection!!! Dark hair – check, hot body – check, dimples – check… hot mouth – check… the perfect package – check… the list goes on and on. The things you say in the heights of passions, I swear to God it was like a walking orgasm. But you don’t do relationships, only hookups, casual sex. Honestly, I don’t think I would have been able to walk away from you either!!!
So in order to make their “friendship” work, they create a ‘THE FRIENDS DON’T LIST’ Because I like you too much to sleep with you… which included “No sex, no making out, no kissing.” Well—that plan was shot to shit. You put these two in a room together and the sexual tension was off the charts. Like I can’t be in a room with you without getting wet/hard. HOLY MOTHER OF HELL it was like a sexual explosion!!! So obviously their plan was an EPIC FAIL!
“I want you to let go. I want you to submit. I want to make you lose your mind. I want you to be so far gone that the only word left in your vocabulary is my name.”
Ummmm you don’t have to ask me twice!!!
The problem though is Danika starts to fall… hard.
“I had the crucial and inescapable realization that I wanted him. Not just in bed. Not just as a friend, but all of him. Every piece of the puzzle. I’d never wanted anything so badly in my life.”
Their road was a rocky one, like a roller coaster ride—wild, with twists and turns and ups and downs. I loved EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE!!! I was in Heaven!!!
To say I’m now a HUGE fan of R.K. Lilley is an understatement. She rocked my world. She is a ROCKSTAR!! I am off to one click every book she’s written!!! You will love it!
