Oh and get this they want to do the whole Bondage Dom/sub thing and this is the best part, they are both virgins!!

Boy did I love this read! The concept was intriguing to me.. The youngest cowboy in the McLemore clan Rory is holding out for his girlfriend Sommer to accept a marriage proposal before they have sex.

Rory comes from a line of hot blooded sexy males that have the town and its female population talking! He is no different.. However he wants to break the reputation which is proving hard to do.

Sommer is a stunner, simply beautiful with the personality to match her looks she is more of a fly by the

It's rare when a man, a very sexy man, wants to wait to have sex until he's married but that's just what Rory wants to do. Sommer knows that Rory is the one for her but she wants every way. Waiting for marriage isn't going to work for her. So they start doing everything except have actual sex and its HOT! Both Sommer and Rory are strong minded and butt heads a lot but they're made for each other.

The sparks coming from these pages are amazing! The fact that Andrea Smith can write another

A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review.

What to say about this book: it's different. The good kind of different. I love those special books when author's skip the meeting of the two lovers and it shows them trying to deal with a real world issue that's about to put them in the ringer. It's not always about the lovey dovey hearts and flowers but the ever after where the hero and heroine have to coexists day to day with each other.

I really loved this book! I was so excited when I got it. Thank you Susan Arden!
This is book 6 I hadn't read the other books in this series, and I definitely will soon, but it stood on its own pretty easily.
If I had to describe this book in one word it would be "Anticipation", thankfully I'm not restricted to only one word so I can tell you in many: this book was the epitome of anticipation and foreplay. Most times when an author teases me with the idea of an incredible sex scene, I start to ge

Unfortunately this book fell a little short for me. The synopsis of the book sounded really good, but unfortunately I had a hard time getting into the book.

Rory and Sommer have been together since high school and Rory wants them to wait until they are married to have sex. When they finally start to explore each other in different ways other then sex, things get really steamy and sexy, which I really enjoyed. They had very strong sexual conn

The synopsis for this book caught my attention. This story is about the relationship of a cowboy and a tattoo artist. Sounds like complete opposites right? Did the relationship still make sense? Yes and no.

What I liked about this book:
I absolutely loved Rory. His character was refreshing. Having just read (yet another) book about a man-whore, I was so happy to stumble upon a male virgin. He may have been a virgin, but he still had most

DNF 56%. I will flat out admit I have dragged my feet to read this one. The premise seemed a bit "Yawn" to me. So I decided to put on my big girl panties and give it a go. Well on the affirmative it wasn't the aforementioned "Yawn", it was more like "Why exactly am I reading this?"! I have enjoyed the prior stories in this series but I found Sommer the /h to be that girl you want to punch in the face. Yup, I said it. How many times can one girl have inappropriate interactions with men before the ...more

Don't think even high schoolers have that much fiber play. A whole lot of touching, inner monologues, and a stupid frustrating leading lady.

Disappointed. This could have been a great book with a great plot but it felt rushed in places and there were way too many mistakes in it. I liked reading from each of the main characters viewpoints but I wouldn't recommend.

This story is about Rory McLemore who is the youngest of the McLemore boys. He is determined to be different from the other men in his family because unlike them who were players who had their fun and then later settled down, he has only ever had eyes for one woman. Sommer and Rory have been together since they were teenagers. After four years of being in a relationship, Sommer wants to take their relationship to the next level, which to her means

An Awesome Book!

I loved reading Breaking A Bad Boy (Bad Boys Book 6), all about Sommer Kincaid a ink artist and the girlfriend of Rory McLemore the baby of the bunch and a cowboy breeder at the family ranch. Rory has been trying to get Sommer to marry him for the last four years, and she keeps coming up with various excuses, but the bottom line is she wants to make sure they are compatible in bed, as much as they are out. Here lies the problem, Rory is the last of the line of McLemore brothers,

Okay, soooooooo HOT!!! The story line was just okay, there wasn't much conflict and a lot of young indecisiveness but the sex scenes make up for that completely, and the writing was very well done. I like all the characters, Drew intrigued me the most) but I felt like I was walking into their lives without knowing anything about them. I'm not sure if that is because they have been introduced in one of the previous five books, but regardless of this fac

Breaking A Bad Boy' is another fabulous story in the 'Bad Boys' series. Sommer is a bold, feisty heroine and Rory is such a sexy, principled cowboy. Light the touch paper and stand well back as this dynamite couple battle their way towards happy ever after.

Rory and Sommer's romance is the antithesis of Brandon and Mia's love story, not a collar in sight but there is plenty of scorching heat i

This spicy western new adult was a smooth read. Sommer is a hard-working girl. She’s from a divorced family and taking care of her mom who has mental illness, and at the same time working. Her long-time boyfriend helps out, a strong Texan cowboy who loves her. It's not a huge part of the story, but love this portrayal of how they support each other and her mom in this situation. Mental illness is difficult for family members to accept, let alone outsiders. For a twenty-something child to be the ...more

I am a hopeless romatic that loves reading GREAT romance stories. Breaking A Bad Boy by Susan Arden definitely does not disappoint. This book is about a couple that really wants to be together but are waiting until marriage to have sex. Rory won’t have sex with Sommer until they are married (because he respects her soooo much!) and Sommer won’t marry Rory until they’ve had sex. Needless to say that this was an interest

How have I not read this series before???

The only thing I didn't like was that I read the 6th book first so I wasn't properly acquainted with all those hot McLemore men properly and felt I wasn't quite in the loop. Never fear, this problem was quickly rectified as soon as I finished this book and my kindle is now fully loaded with the other 5 books!

This was my first book by Susan Arden but i't wont be my last!!!

Rory was a breath of fresh air. It's not common for the guy to want to wait until marriage to have sex but that is exactly what Rory wants with Sommer his girlfriend for several years. Sommer keeps trying to convince Rory to forget about waiting but this cowboy is holding to his convictions.

Although this was the sixth book in the series and the first one that I read I didn't have any problems with following the characters. I will b

Another great story from Susan Arden. I love the detailing of the characters emotional and physical feelings. The book was dual point of view, between Rory and Sommer. Their story didn't have much of a BDSM theme, but there was the alpha-male personality with Rory. I really liked Sommer's character. She wasn't the heroine that was needy or needed to be taken care, she was the one that wanted to stand on her own two feet, tr

I really loved Rory. What a gorgeous sweet bad boy. And Sommer is pretty feisty. This is always a fun combination.

This is the first book that I have read by Susan Arden and I can say that this won't be the last. I loved the story of Rory and Sommer and all of the things that she tried to do to get Rory to change how he felt about things. Of course this wouldn't be a good story without drama and that was most definitely in this book but it was not overwhelming. The one question that was on my mind while I was reading this was is Sommer ever going to break Rory and I c

Susan Arden is a new author for me. I started out reading Collared by a Cowboy and was hooked. I had to find the other Maclemore's and finish the whole series.

Breaking A Bad Boy is about Rory & Sommer. Rory is (twin) the youngest of the family and has been in love with Sommer for years. He wants to marry her and she had rather "play" than get married. There is a lot of lovin' and a lot of strong will romance going on here. I love how the family always comes through for each other. If you lov

Susan Arden has an amazing way with words, and has made a true romance story out of the most innocent of characters.

The book shows that chivalry is not dead, but it also shows the many ways a couple can explore each other, all wrapped in one great package!

Two thumbs up to Susan Arden for taking a great story and keeping my attention the entire book!

Rory just oozes sex appeal, “baby,” he growled, pumping his hips and rubbing his hard-on against her hand. “Time to get naked.” I liked this book, Rory was really sexy.
