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

even better than character redemption? AUTHOR REDEMPTION!

it's no secret that i loathed bad habit. it was every horrible NA cliche wrapped into one cringey book. so i was so pleasantly surprised that this was pretty freaking good & honestly a complete 180 from rose's first book.

we've got the "damaged" tattoo artist dare, and lo who has never had anyone to rely on. lo escapes her shitty life and finds someone who actually cares. i really liked both of the main characters. i was honestly surprised

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.
So I really connected

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

Bad Intentions is my second Charleigh Rose book and I am beyond addicted. She writes emotional, sexy stories that come to life off of the pages. The characters pull me in quickly and I keep finding myself with tears in my eyes, while I watch them try their hardest to find happiness, hope, and love. This book was smile inducing, crazy seductive, emotional and I can't recommend Bad Intentions enough! While this book can easily be read as a standalone, I highly recommend starting with Bad Habit.

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

This sexy shit is pure unfiltered book dope!! I’m on a crazy book high right now!!
Dare is #Bae! It’s like the author had insight into my soul. She sat down and said, “What does TJ love in a book?” And then proceeded to deliver in every single aspect!

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!

Lo has spent her entire life taking care of her younger brother, Jesse. 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. When she stumbles into the tattoo shop looking for a job and finds Dare,

This is a favorite for me!
Andddd I will be re-reading!

The feels of this book is phenomenal! I have to say, Dare is truly one of my favorite hero’s. He’s charming, broody (the right amount) and he’s not a complete ass. He’s broken and he’s dealing with it.
Logan is also a favorite heroine of mine. She’s hilarious, she’s got jokes for days. This girl. She’s 21 years old with the maturity of an old soul. She’s bad ass. She’s real. And she’s raw.
They are the perfect couple. I loved watching their

I like this book. This is my first read by moss Rose. With such good rating in goodreads, i start listen to the audiobook. It is a simple classic story. A girl runs away from her past. Primce charming saves her day. Prince charming also have dark secret. The writing is flawless.

I just think it takes too much time with unnecessary eric drama. It can be shorten a bit. And at the beginning too much introduction with so many characters that for the rest of story development, they disappear into the

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.

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

Wow this was such an emotional read and my favourite so far in the series. I completely in love with both Dare and Lo. These two broken people were so right for each in so many ways. I was so intrigued by Dare aka Stefan when I met him in the previous book and was anxious to read his story and it was absolute perfection. Some couple just leave a mark on you and they are one of them.

WOAH!!!!!! Dare and Lo have INSANE amounts of chemistry.
This is the second book in the BAD LOVE series by Charleigh Rose, and it was every bit as good as the first. I honestly didnt think that anything could top Asher and Briar, but CR delivered something pretty amazing.
Not only did i love Date and Lo, but i have a massive crush on Adrian (thats never going to change and i hope he gets a book soon), also Jesse (Logans brother - and i dont care one little bit that he is still in high school!!!!)

“What happens when fire meets ice? Fire wins. Every time.”

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.

Bad intention is book 2 in the bad love series by Charleigh Rose.

I absolutely loved everything about Dare and Lo’s story! Their chemistry was off the charts insane!
I love a sassy heroine and steamy scenes. Charleigh Rose bought that in spades.
I fell in love with Dare, the mysterious hero. He had no idea what to do with a spunky sassy heroine like Lo. Both beautifully broken, but perfect for one another.

An epic read by Charleigh Rose

“What happens when fire meets ice? Fire wins. Every time.”

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

“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.

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!

I really enjoyed this one! Which is shocking because I didn’t end up finishing the first in this series. However, this book kept me glued to my kindle while I was reading. I couldn’t get enough of Lo and Dare!

Lo was strong and fierce! She had to be because she wasn’t just taking care of herself, she was trying to do the best for her brother Jesse. The best she could do in the situation she was in. Even when things were starting to get impossible she never just up and left to go back to her old l
