He’s arrogant.

She’s self-righteous.

I hate him.

I want her.

I’ve been turning him down for two years straight.

Every shut-down makes me work harder.

I’m not a one-night stand kind of girl.

She doesn’t realize I won’t settle for only one night.

He’s a distraction I don’t need.

Things between us have already gone past any level that I expected, and my thoughts would probably freak her the fuck out. What would she say if she knew I was falling in love with her? Would she run the other way?

This book may be titled Bad Judgment, but reading certainly was no error on my part. No sir. Meghan March never fails to disappoint with introducing readers to yet another hero that's sure to melt panties within a 50 mile radius. Guaranteed.

Let's just start by saying how different (and still in the same style) this book is from all the others I have read by Meghan March. I love a well-developed story and Bad Judgement definitely filled my expectations on that (and everything else). Definitely not complaining on the HOT cover and.. me loves the slow burning and the moment it exploded between this couple! This book has become my new favorite by March, that's for sure.

"Bad judgment. That’s all it was. I’m never drinking again - or kissing Ryker Grant."


Meghan March is quickly becoming my 'go to' author for a dirty, flirty romance fix and I can happily say that this book is one of my favourites of this authors to date. With plenty of anticipation and wonderfully paced story telling, March managed to create a fabulous backdrop for two gorgeous characters to find their way to love.

This was a pretty easy read, and an enjoyable one. Ryker and Justine were both good characters and I took an instant liking to them and their story. It was fun to read about Ryker chasing after Justine while she continued to ignore his advances. It wasn't done in an annoying way where Ryker seemed too stalkerish, though, so I really enjoyed that part of the book.

The romance between them was very well written, and I liked that it was a mature relatio

Audiobook review. Justine resists the sexy Ryker for years before they finally come together and I enjoyed the journey. While I found myself disagreeing with some of Justine's actions/opinions and was frustrated at times, I understand it was true to her character. Ryker was sexy as hell. Persistent, cocky, smart, and all the other traits that make us love our leading men. He made mistakes, as did Justine, but they complimented one another well. Their love scenes were HOT. The plot was interestin ...more

When I think of a Meghan March book, New Adult Romance is not a genre that comes to mind and neither is Romantic Comedy. Edgy, erotic, and suspenseful are all terms I’ve used to describe her previous work. I admit I was a wee bit skeptical that she could pull off a New Adult Romantic Comedy, but I’ll be damned if Bad Judgment didn’t pleasantly surprise me.

Ryker is a deliciously sexy, rich, carefree law student with a reputation for being a player. Justine is a fellow law student, but s

Overall Opinion: I was looking forward to this one, because it just sounded fun (and college romances are a weakness of mine). Sadly, I was disappointed. I found myself bored through most of it, and the drama at the end just felt like it was added just for the sake of drama and then resolved way too quickly and easily. I didn't really connect with either character, and I didn't really feel their connection to each other either. I just felt underwhelmed by the whole thing tbh. Others s

Justine and Ryker are from different worlds. She is the poor student trying her best to get her degree and make her life for herself. Ryker is the popular rich kid that has everything handled easily. For some reason he wants Justine and for the last two years he has been unsuccessfully pursuing her. Until he starts failing some classes and Justine scholarship gets jeopardized, and she ends up being her tutor in order to finish her law degree. Which works perfectly for Ryker

I was really looking forward to this book because I love Meghan March but I was really disappointed, it follows the romance between two law students Justine and Ryker. Ryker has been trying to date Justine for the last 2 years and she has always brushed him off until her scholarship is cancelled and Ryker's father offers to pay her tuition if Justine helps Ryker to get his grades up, one thing leads to another and they fall in love. The characters were ok but the story line was quite boring this ...more

I needed a good New Adult Romance and Meghan March delivered a great one!

In her third year of law school, Justine is forced to figure out how to make ends meet. With her scholarship pulled due to funding issues, there is just no way can she afford tuition. Her prayers are answered when her former boss and father to the guy she’s been avoiding for three years, offers her a deal of a lifetime. But can she spend her nights with Ryker and not get distracted?

It was long overdue for this book. I haven't even realized that I forgot to read halfway with this one. This is a safe read. No heavy heartache/drama/and anything-unnecessary-shit.

Justine had always kept up for herself, nobody to ask for help. She's a smart, hard working law student on scholarship. Of course when it was the most unconvinient time to happened, she lost the free ride.

RYKER!!! – I love you!!

Another awesome audiobook. Wonderful narrators that kept me listening all the time. I was pretty much walking around the house, glued to the phone. In bed, in the bathroom, at the dining table, walking to the car, at work (naughty) – I couldn’t put it down.

Mostly because of Ryker. I really liked that guy. He was arrogant, demanding, confident, and an alpha in the making. He made me SWOON!!

Bad Judgement is a sharp, smart, and confident sexy romance!!!! Meghan March has boldly put her romance stamp on this steamy enemies to lovers story line as she flawlessly integrates witty characters, raw emotions and angst that seamlessly flows together.

I think that maybe this was a case of it's just me. I had a really hard time wrapping my head around some of the book. It was all very cliche.

Justine is the smart but poor law student that had to rely on a scholarship to reach her dreams. Her eye was on the prize and nothing would stand in the way.

Ryker was the rich and entitled bad boy of law school. His prize for some reason was to land Justine. So he tried...for two years. That doesn't mean that he waited for her. Nope he st

I totally forgot how much I love slow burn romance.
If you do too, this one is for you!
This was one more than enjoyable college romance.
It has some of the elements I really appreciate in my reads - swoon hero, smart sassy heroine, decent dose of humour and sexiness and not too much unnecessary drama.
I read it in one sitting.

I don't really know what I was expecting when I started Bad Judgment, but what I got was so much more. This story sucked me in and didn't let go until the last page was read.

Justine is in law school and the scholarship she needs to be able to pay for school is now gone. She resorts to tutoring Ryker, the guy who has been asking her out for two years. Once they start studying together, and spending time with each other, they realize just how much they enjoy being around one another.

I am a total sucker for slow-burning romances. Throw in a possessive alpha with a heart of gold and a sassy heroine and you have a winner in my book. Bad Judgment combines all of that with Meghan March’s ability to write witty dialogue and a story that builds anticipation throughout.

Justine is an ambitious law student attending school on a merit scholarship. She has worked her ass off for everything she has gotten and graduation is the only thing that drives her. She doesn’t have time for distra

Dragged on bullshit, I am "reviewing" this after so long, I don't even remember half the things of the book. All I can say is it was an unremarkable bland book that will be on the shelf with all the other time fillers. It is dragged on without any character development or plot points just the need to fill the pages by the author. I am sure other reviews will tell you more, just my basic thoughts upon the book.
LOVED this one! Ryker and Justine were perfect together - I love that she wasn't a pushover and that he had to work to get her. Sexy, sweet and a little bit of angst. I wish this was going to be a new series - I really liked the supporting characters too!

Bad Judgement is one of those books that left me very torn on how to rate and review it. There was so much about this book that I really enjoyed, but there were also a lot of things that I felt were unnecessary, things thrown in toward the end that turned an engaging storyline into something that felt over the top. There were parts of this story that completely gripped me, moments super steamy, moments so romantic, moments so angsty that I couldn't look away. I was IN the story in this moments. ...more

Lawyers are one of my favorite types of characters and these two main characters are no different – super smart, sexy, swoony hero and a very strong heroine.

Ryker has been crushing on his law student classmate for two years. He has been pursuing her since freshman year but Justine is having none of that. She is focused on school and vows to not be distracted by anyone, let alone a classic playb
