But I'm not good, and I will Make a Wife out of You.

First, let's talk about the title of this book. "Wife me bad boy"? Beyond stupid. I kept thinking there would be some cute inside joke. But no, no. They are using "wife" as a verb, and not even a very good one.

Still though, I thought, hey, I had a good KU experience last week and this one looks promising. Let's check this baby out.

Silly, silly me.

We begin the book with Grant and Lacey, who have been mutually in lust with each other since they first met when he was 21 and she was 17. 'Kay. The bo

A bad boy with a heart!

This is the romantic and totally hilarious love journey of Grant and Lace. First off I must say this story had me cracking up!! Grant is a definite bad boy he's musclebound he has tattoos everywhere and he's a thief. Yep he's a modern-day Robin Hood. But he's also a romantic at heart even though the story opens up with him being a complete cynic when it comes to marriage and relationships. Grant has been in love with Lacey since he was 21 and Lacey was 17. Right from the b

Having finished Chance's 'Wife Me Bad Boy' all I can say again is WOW! 'Wife Me Bad Boy' is Chance's second book this year & part of the same series, I do suggest you read book 1 first,although is't not a necessity. I love how we started off at Faith & Jackson's wedding (from 'Bad Boy Daddy') you get a really indepth idea about what marriage means to our new leading characters Lacey & Grant. Let me just say they have COMPLETE different views. Then a descision to let lust fly for the night, has L ...more

I received this for an honest review. I enjoy Chance Carter’s work. The first book I read of his was really good but I think this one was better. I just loved Grant Lucas in this book.

Lacey Eden was beautiful. When I was first reading about Lacey I was wondering how much I was going to like her but trust me when I say that first glance does not tell you everything. When you first read about her you might think she is weak but that is so far from the truth. She carries some scars with her that m

Recieved this as an ARC for a honest review.

This book for me wasn't as good as the first and was very frustrating to read, for me there are some issues: (spoilers)
* As with the first one there were again a few editing issues.
* They main characters had 17 years of attraction without any major action on either part. Wow 17 years of nothing, seems a lot of years to waste!
* There first sexual encounter was had with no protection, made the pregnancy predictable.
*The main characters kept repeating the

I said in my review of Bad Boy Daddy and I will say it again, I was leary about reading these books. I just didn't think it was possible for a decent storyline with a woman of substance to be written by a man. BOY was I wrong. Chance has such a way of writing wonderful characters with an abundance of substance, characters you can really feel a connection with. Although I felt a connection with Faith the heroine from Bad Boy Daddy, it was miniscule compared to the connection I felt with Lacey.

This was a romantic story of a bad boy scared to give up his freedom he swore to never marry and everyone knew especially Lacey who was crazy about Grant but never said so nor did he say the words to her he just wrote them to himself until he realized that the woman he loved was about to make the biggest mistake of her life and refuse to look at what she was doing to herself. Lacey Eden was seventeen when she first met Grant Lucas when her father brought him home to live with them so that he cou ...more

A Review of Wife Me Bad Boy by Chance Carter

The path to love is sometimes long and rocky - 5 stars

I was really excited to get to Grant and Lacey's story, after meeting them in Faith and Jackson's story. We knew from that book that Lacey was in love with Grant and even though the others could tell that he cared a lot about her as well, Grant was hesitant to pursue his desire. Lacey and the four guys of the Brotherhood were family for over seventeen years and since Lacey's father was the one that

I was willing to give this book a 'chance'...I soon gave up on it though. Besides the few editing and vocabulary boo-boos that I came upon within the first few pages of this 'romance', I had to back off. Which is too bad, as the opening was pretty good, overall.

There's nothing sexy or 'romantic' about Grant (a juvenile lunk of a guy), telling Lacey (a woman who is literally too stupid to live) how he's gonna' 'do her' in crude language...even if she likes him to talk dirty to her. (The dirty tal
Grant Lucas doesn't believe in marriage, he doesn't do commitment and he thinks men accept the farce of marriage and share the same belief. His thoughts briefly waver though when he sees his best friend get married, but is it real.

Lacey has long had a crush on Grant and when he confesses he wants her she is thrilled. However he just wants her for one night only, he wants to pretend he is her husband and she his wife. She succumbs hoping for a different end result, but it blows up in her face. Hu

Can one change their mind about things when it comes to having a partner in life or rather making sure that avenue is cut off? When if you feel what your feeling is wrong but take it a step further anyway can the consequences out way the risk? What if that risk was not only your heart but the breaking of anothers heart? Not all is easy when looking for Mr. Right in the wrong places. Yet he must let her go, but can he do the right thing and let her go? Simple may not be that simply lived.

Lacey has always loved Grant. She has been looking for her happily ever after, but hasn't found it...
Grant has always loved Lacey. But he won't admit to it. Love, weddings, husband & wife will not be in his future.
So when Lacey meets Rob, even though he doesn't treat her right, she is willing to put that to the side and accept what he gives just so she isn't alone. Will things change between her and Rob? Will he finally treat her right? When he proposes marriage, she says yes. Will Grant allow

Grant was a hard guy to love. Didn’t believe in marriage and said he would never take the plunge. But when his best friend got married he took Lacey to the loft. Lacey had been 17 when her dad brought Grant home. And things changed. Both stubborn. Both denied the feelings they’ve felt since meeting 17 years ago. Now the stakes have changed. Lacey meets Rob, who is Keeping secrets that Grant doesn’t like. In the end, Grant takes matters into his own hands. Lacey is his and nothing will stand in h ...more

Wife Me Bad Boy is an incredibly breathtaking testament to the life-changing power of love. Even if you don’t see immediate changes, it weaves itself quietly into every aspect until you can’t separate it from any part of yourself. The effect is unmeasurable by human standards because you don’t see the results until long after it has permeated every part of your heart and being. Every lost and hurting soul that is touched by love will find themselves intoxicated by its passion, overwhelmed by its ...more

Could not finish.

Spoilers!!!! Spoilers!!!!! I reached about 50 percent of this book and I could not finish. I am assuming that at this point the author was going into the HEA, which would be empty. This book is about the worst h character that I have read about in a very long time. This character had absolutely no self respect or self esteem and she was willing to do just about anything to herself or have anything done to her so that she can get a man. Really?

Here is a character who was in her

I loved the first book of the series so decided to read this one and wasn't disappointed. It's about two people who clearly have the hots for each other and love each other but never truly show how they feel about each other until one of them wakes the other up and it's a wonderful story. If you want to know how it ends then you need to read it. It's filled with love, joy and some heartbreak! ...more

Wow, this will get your heart a pumping. This is the second story for the Brotherhood (professional thieves). This is the daughter of the man that stated it all and save the four men's lives. Lacey had been in love with Grant since she was 17 and he was 21, he was the first of the boys but it was him and Lacey for a while, growing to like and be each other's friend, she helped him and the others become the men they are today. But Grant would never become the lover he wanted to be for her, becaus ...more

This is the second book in the "Naughty Boy" series and Chance Carter did it again with his outstanding storyline and his character development.

Grant is exactly how I would imagine any guy. He is a rough guy with an imagine of being against marriage. He has fantasized about a woman for years but never acted on it for one reason. She was considered family. She was the daughter of the man who saved him so many years ago. Until one night everything was good. Then the night of Jackson's wedding changed everything.

Lacey was just seventeen when Grant came to live with them. Now seventeen years later and she still has the same feeling that she

There is something when you know it's a man who writes romances, it makes unconsciously the men in the stories appear more edgy, closer to reality... Chance Carter is such a good author he gives us, women, all our fantasies and happy ending without taking the true nature of alpha men! Wife Me Bad Boy, is the second book of the series. We meet the whole gang again, have updates on Jackson and Faith while discovering Lacey and Grant's story. An

DNF at 15%. I really tried to get into this book but the heroine was such a wimpy, sad sack of bad decisions that I just couldn't stomach it without looking on here to see if it got better. It doesn't. I'm not giving this book more of my life.

* Reading the hilarious review on Goodreads by Aarann was the best part of the book reading experience.

This was Grant and Lacey's book. Quite sweet really, they have both been in love with each other but Grant won't admit it !!

I like this book as it was the marriage proposal from another guy that spurred Grant to get with the programme. Sheesh, he should't have needed Rob coming on the scene to make him realise that Lacey was his HEA.....but hey sometimes ya need a push. But is it too late ?

Lacey has been in love with Grant for a long time. Neither of them have acted upon the feelings they each have for various reasons until forced to face it or leave each other alone forever. Friendships will be tested. Lines will be crossed. Hearts will be broken.

There were many times I wanted to slap Lacey silly and tell her where the heck the strong Lacey is? Throughout the story she was strong willed and then weak and when she was weak was when I disliked her the most.

The story was great and I

I read this as satire, not a serious romance. I use the term 'read' loosely- it was more skimming and laughing at the horrible prose. With lines like;
'It terrified me. I had to stop him. If he put that thing inside me it would kill me. It was more like a weapon than an organ of love.'
Yup. She said 'organ of love'
“I’m going to wrap you around this cock, Lacey. It’s going to wear you.”
Just a little bit like Silence of the Lambs.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

For a new author, Chance Carter definitely has what it takes to write a story that keeps his readers captivating, intrigued, and interested. He weaves a story of drama, guilt, betrayal, want, need, attraction, lust, steamy sex, relationships, family, romance, passion, and love. If you're looking for a book that is good, fast, steamy with a whole lot of naughty thrown in, Wife Me Bad Boy is the book for you.

I don't even know where to begin. These MCs were awful. It's been a while since I've read a book about a heroine I disliked this much. To be honest, I only got through 22%. There was more interaction between the h and the other man. And that interaction?! Where do I start? It was just bizarre. Why she did what she did, made no sense to me. I found it very hard to believe. Are there women like that in the world? Absolutely, but it didn't match up with THIS character. It was so confusing.
