Bad Girl is the second book in the Wicked series, and boy is it wickedly delicious!! So many gasping moments, I couldn’t put it down! I look forward to reading the conclusion of Haley and Jax’s story in the next book!!

The second book in the Wicked series, this book follows directly on from Good Girl, picking up the story of good girl Haley and rockstar Jax Jamieson after they’ve spent a couple of months apart.

The first book was a delicious slow burn as Haley and Jax got to know each other and developed feelings for that had the potential for epicness, but it remained as this feeling of anticipation as we waited for them to come together for real. Their situation was tricky, and the book ended with

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

I didn't think that Piper Lawson could surprise or titillate me anymore than she already had with Jax and Haley in “Good Girl” but boy did she prove me wrong in her second addition to her Wicked series! The only way I can describe Good Girl is all repressed sexual tension and “what could be's” but Bad Girl was smoldering and explosive and we uncover more secrets that blow our mind and keep us riveted from beginning to

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.

‘Bad girl’ is the second book in the ‘Wicked’ series and it is the follow-up of Haley and Jax’s story so you really need to read ‘Good girl’ first before you read this one.

After finishing ‘Good girl’ I was really curious about what would happen next between Jax and Haley. And I can say that I wasn’t disappointed! Wow! After the slow burning pace in the first book, this story was steamy! I loved it! If I have

I like this story better now then the first book, that one was a unfulfilling. Now I feel like I know the characters better and it makes more sense.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Good dialogues
Well described characters

Clear pronunciation and read with feelings

Starting the next one soon.

Oooh it's getting interesting...

Everything was going so right...then bam!!! Moving along smoothly then disaster. This storyline is so fast paced I am loving it.
This one has some surprises, a little twist, an ultimatum, and that slow burn turned into some good sex.
So onto the final book and see if Haley and Jax get that HEA or not.

Loved book 2 of this series!

Piper Lawson is an amazing writer with such a talent for making me feel every emotion! Book 2 had all the elements of plot twists, angst, hot scenes, laughs & of course soul-affirming love in all shapes! On to book 3...

Wow, Wow, Wow!

If I thought that this series could not get more addictive, more angsty, more unpredictable I was wrong! Did not see this one coming. Now off to find out what the final book in this series will deliver to me. Will it be the HEA these characters deserve or the end of a love they both want, need and deserve? I'm about to find out.....on to Wicked Girl! Fingers crossed!

So broken and real

This book had unexpected surprises. It has me yearning for more of these characters. They are flawed and so real. Hurt, forgiveness, want, need, brokenness. I love how the author doesn’t water anything down. Can’t wait to find out how it ends.

I was sent this book from the publisher/publicity team. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

I am going to start off by saying I am not normally a fan of rock band/music group romances. I just never feel there is anything that sets them apart. This series sounded really good though, so I decided to give it a chance. I am glad I did. Just an FYI, Audible has the bind-up of the

Bad Girl: A Rockstar Romance
Wicked, Book 2
By: Piper Lawson
Narrated by: Joe Arden, Savannah Peachwood

I am just loving this series, “Bad Girl” picks up right where the first book “Good Girl” ended. Haley found out who her father was and Jax knew it and did not tell her. Feeling hurt and betrayed she left the tour, needing space and time to think about what she learned. After spending two months with Lita down in Nashville. The book

I've fallen for fictional rock stars before, but Haley is my favorite heroine in a rock star romance. If you like strong and smart female characters, you're in for a treat. Haley has mettle and determination like I've rarely seen in a romance heroine. She lusts after Jax and falls in love with him, but he doesn't become her entire life. She doesn't lose sight of her goals and what's important to her. I'm usually all about the romance, but I was just as engrossed in the rest of Haley's life as I ...more

I really liked the first book in this trilogy, but this one was your typical middle book. It set some things up for the final book, but there wasn't much that happened. The only thing that happened that really bothered me was Jax's ultimatum to Haley. I thought it was selfish and I feel like it soured his character for me. I don't understand how Haley isn't more resentful or upset, especially when doing this would literally make her dream come true.

I received a copy of this audio book from the author for review purposes. The opinions in this review are my own.

As I had already read the series in book form and knew I enjoyed it, I was surprised that hearing it in audio format added to the experience. Both Joe Arden and Savanna Peachwood were good choices for the characters and were excellent at interpreting the author’s work.

As the second book in the series, this book follows Haley and Jax as they move away from the tour environment. Haley

Bad Girl is the second book in the Wicked Trilogy and it continues right where book one left off. This couple has easily become one of my favorites and I enjoyed following their story. Its so much more than just a rockstar story. We have Haley's pending relationship with the man she discovered is her father and Jax wanting to leave the band and their budding relationship. Its unique and emotional and again had me hooked until the end.
While book 1 was a slow burn, this book was hott and steamy

Another winner of high entertainment value. There certainly is plenty of activity and life happenings in this tale. The story is well written and flows well; it kept this reader totally engaged to the exclusion of all else happening around them. Interesting revelation in this second works that this reader did not see coming. Really like one analogy the main female character made:
"... not rehashing every decision ... like a washing machine on spin cycle."
The reader can relate to this and this

I love good rockstar romances, and this one is no exception. It continues on where we left off, with Jax and Haley. I think what is so good about this is its not your typical story. So many times there is ego, and following the famous, but this story is a deeper. We get to see the Haley's past come to the forefront, and Jax's past decide a new path. It's unexpected, romantic, frustrating and oh so good. I am loving their journey, working through life's issues and the ending twist just leaves me ...more

I really enjoyed reading how Haley and Jax story continue. The band tour is over and they are facing their realities wondering what it's going to happen next. Missing each other and thinking about each other but trying to keep going with their lives.

However, they are going to collide and their world and reality will be different, more complex and entertaining. Will they enjoy their moments together or will they feel that they want more than just a few glipses of forgetting their sometimes crazy

I'll be honest, I have never been a fan of literary cliffhangers: a lot of authors use them to generate revenue rather than advance the plot, so how is this benefiting the poor readers? Luckily for us, Piper Lawson decided to take the high road with Bad Girl and gift her readers with a little gem that still needs to be continued in another book, but is SO WONDERFUL BY ITSELF, you almost don't care - almost.

In Bad Girl, Haley and Jax come to terms with their budding relationship, and

Slow burn romance ends with this book and passion between Haley and Jax explodes and its burn hot. The story has so many unexpected events and twist and is great because it is not dull or boring and pages just flew by. We learn a lot of new thing from Jax and his past and see what has developed him in this person and why is he retiring. We see Haley a little bit grown up after the summer, that she is more mature. I liked that she has a positive view on life and doesn't hold such grudges. Haley ...more

Well up until the last 10% of this book i loved it ! I loved how the Heat ramped up between Haley and Jax ! It was HOT they were finally going in the right direction finally working it out and then .... the last 10% - without any spoilers why did he choose that and why did she choose that ... they could be such a good team . Frustrating ending ! And just like the first was left completely incomplete . ... I’m going to keep reading the series because I want them to have a happy ending (

Because I'm an impatient sort, I won't usually read a story that's in more than one part/book. I need quicker gratification in the form of an HEA. After reading the first and second book in this series, however, I'm starting to think that I've been missing out. The trade-off is the much more intense immersion into the lives, the full story, of these characters, and the chance to get to watch them actually grow and develop in a natural way. And the thing is, that aspect matters a lot here because ...more
