Moving to River’s Edge was supposed to be a fresh start.
Away from chaos.
Away from bad influences and worse relationships.
All I wanted was to give my little brother more of a chance than I ever had.
It should’ve been simple.
I didn’t count on my transgressions following me.
And I definitely didn’t count on meeting Dare.

I. Loved. This. Book.

Bad Intentions was everything I didn’t know that I needed right now in a book. This book is filled with swoony moments. It’s filled with sexy as fuck moments, that will leave you sweating, because they are just that hot. It’s filled with emotional moments that left me with all the feels.

Lo is a heroine that you will 1000% root for. She is so amazing for so many reasons. God. I love her.

Dare. This mysterious fucker. I could say so much about him, but honestly going into this

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Standalone Book 2 of Bad Love series
POV: First Person - Dual

Logan (Lo) Shepherd desperately needed a new start. Together with her brother, she was hoping to cut ties with their troubled past. But little did she know what's waiting in the new small town might be another new set of trouble.

Dare was the resident loner people tend to give wide berth for. The tattooed bad boy rather sink his teeth into his work at his tattoo shop than deal with the general pop

So I really bloody loved "Bad Intentions" like so so much.
It was my first book by this author and I was really impressed with its ability to reel me in and keep my attention on target throughout.
This has to be up there as one of my top contemporary reads of this year.
It was such an unexpected gem, taking me completely unawares and I am immensely glad I got the opportunity to experience this great piece of romantic fiction.

There are a couple of authors that check all my boxes. Charleigh Rose is one of them.

I love pretty much everything about her books.

✔ writing style

✔ sassy and witty heroines, fascinating heroes

✔ sexy stories

Bad Intentions was my favorite Charleigh Rose book yet.

I LOVED Logan and Dare's story. It was emotional, touching, raw and just beautiful. The author wrote a story about two people that were just perfect for each other. Neither Lo (Logan) nor Dare knew what family, trust and people to

Genre: Romance

If you've been following my reviews, you'll know that Bad Habit (Bad Love #1) was one of my favourite New Adult book for the 2017. So, it's really no surprise that I pounced into this one ....I am not ashamed to say that I read this book in one sitting...I forgot to eat, I missed an appointment but I had no regrets!

Bad Intention is beautifully written. It's utterly captivating!

I've read the first one and enjoyed it so much. But my memory is beginning to get worse.. So I was thinking who is Dare? But it slowly came back to me.

I enjoyed this one very much, because it was what I needed! I like my bbf as alpha, a little "bad", good with banter..

There was a saying that I felt like this is so true! Many people do it not even knowingly. "Don't compare tragedies". Everybody does it and some feel like they can't talk because theirs isn't much of a tragedie. But for everyone a

Looooooved Bad Intentions. HARD.

I feel like these characters could be my friends in real life. I loved being in Dare and Lo's world! Can I stay there forever? The tension between these two was off the charts hot. I just needed them to bang. Like RFN. And holy Jesus when it happened. It was explosive! Love these two so much! I basically moaned, gasped, laughed, smiled and screamed through the whole book. Sometimes the screaming was for nail biting scenes that went down, but mostly it was because

So many feelings involved in this story. It was a mix of drama, romance, mystery, action. It had it all.
I loved Dare (and his real name is sexy too), but Lo was not my favourite character. She was lacking something. I don’t know what.
Eric was awful! I knew from the start he will keep coming back and I was afraid at the beginning of each chapter that he is going to intrude. Thank God for Dare’s friends.

One of my most anticipated reads this year and it didn't let me down, it surpass all my expectations. From chapter to chaper this story became more and more intense, touching, raw and just beautiful. I love it when a book makes me feel many different things and really enjoyed Bad Intentions because of this.

I certanly have no idea who's next in the series, but I am so hoping that Jess will get his own book.

I’ve been waiting for the next book in this series since I finished reading Bad Habit. I was so glad when Charleigh Rose announced all these amazing characters were getting their own love stories and I was definitely curious about the icy tattooed God, Dare (one of Asher’s best friends, the hero of Bad Habit). And since I loved the first book that much, I had high expectations for this one and I a

“I think you’re my new favorite hobby.”

I've wanted to read Dare's book since I first started reading this series. Unfortunately, I think my expectations were too high.


Dare and Logan share similar backgrounds and handle things pretty similarly. Dare is much more of a loner - at least in the beginning.

Logan and her brother, Jesse, move here to live with their father trying to escape their addict mother and her plethora of bad influences.

After trying to get a job at Dare's tattoo parlor,

It’s no secret I love me a mysterious hero. There’s just something about them, isn’t there? I fell in love with Dare the very minute he appeared in Bad Habit. He hooked me in and didn’t let go.

There’s more to Dare than meets the eye and his story broke me just as much as Logan’s. My heart ached for them both.

Lo is a tough girl. I like badass heroines and Lo was definitely badass. How she cared for those she loved was really sweet and a

Whenever Charleigh Rose has a new release, I want to drop everything and read it. I was so excited for Dare's story and couldn't wait to watch the tattooed, silent bad boy fall in love!

When she finally decides they've had enough and moves them to River's Edge together, she's hoping she can provide the safe, stable life her brother has always deserved.

Okay so this is one of those books I stayed up until 2am to finish because I had to know the ending. I couldn't read it fast enough.

I adored Lo. Absolutely adored her. She is fierce, brave and loyal, focused on her little brother and his happiness. This leaves her with no time for distractions - meaning I desperately wanted her to get the HEA she deserved!!

Into her life walks Dare, now he is just the kind of distraction she doesn't need and exactly what she deserves. Ultimate BBF material for

Well this is a surprise.

This is the first Charleigh Rose book I've read where I actually liked the characters and wasn't constantly rolling my eyes or had the urge to throw my eReader.

Even though I loved Dare and Logan and even Jess a whole lot, I still love Asher and Bri more and boy am I happy they were in this book more than once. Actually I'm pretty glad everyone was, I cannot wait for all of them to get their own book, even some of the new characters like Jess, Lo's brother. This whole gang is just amazing!

Obviously Charleigh Rose can't do it wrong for me. Her stories bring special feelings out of me when reading her books. This is now third book (fourth if I consider also novella Yard Sale) I loved so much.

It's nice romantic story with hot erotic scenes. She creates amazing main characters with touchable personalities and she describes setting with vividness you forgot you are not part of the story.

Charleigh Rose delivers another bad boy hero with a heart of gold, and I can’t get enough of this Bad Habits crew!

Dare and Logan are such a fantastic couple. I love her fight and dedication to her brother, and Dare’s gruff nature but need to take care of them. The duality makes them relatable and creates phenomenal sexual tension. When these two come together, it is hot, like make me blush HOT!

Such an enthralling read. I’d been waiting for this baby forever and it definitely lived up to the hype. Take the broken bad boy and put him together with a sassy but strong spitfire who’s been just as broken throughout her life and create an explosion of lust, love & loyalty. This author knows her stuff when it comes to creating an angsty love story that will have you falling faster than you can say, “eureka”. Definitely recommend this baby!
