I’m Harlow Grace, the newest, hottest face of Hollywood sex appeal, the woman every man wants and every woman wants to be… and I’m running away. I need an escape. I need to get away from the pressure, find somewhere I won’t be hounded at every step—an impossible thing to ask when I’m on billboards everywhere, from LA to Laos, Japan to Jakarta, Sydney to Siberia.

I unashamedly jumped to this book even though I haven't caught up on the rest of the series yet. I just couldn't wait to get more of Xavier and his uniqueness. And I can say with full certainty that I was not disappointed with his story. He was even more lovable as a main character than he was as a secondary one and I adored him.

I really liked how he was with Harlow and that we got to see him open up a little more around her. I thought their relationship was

"A lot, and not enough, and too much."

I've been waiting for this one, the baby of the family of eight brothers, the Badd Boy. And not surprisingly, it's my favorite so far. I can't resist a sexy nerd with a big...heart. He's also got other big things. No, that's not what I meant, though true. He has a big brain that never stops, a big body that's over 6 feet tall, and a big family that includes 7 brothers and their women.

Being the youngest, just barely twenty years old, Xavier tends to draw
"3 Stars"

This was a cute story! Some parts were pretty cheesy so I kind of rolled my eyes a couple of times! Xavier and Harlow were cute and sweet. I liked their story.


P.S. The Badd series is coming with new editions! ;p

DNF @ end of Chapter 3. Or somewhere along there.

1) Despite the interesting premise, and my love of the trope for this type of Hero, I just couldn't continue reading. It was BORING!! Chemistry was tame. Dialogue was tame. No real spark. No real wit.

2) Within the first few pages there was switching between verb tenses for no reason. Most of the book is written in first person past tense, but some in first person present tense, with no real logic when the tenses switch! I HATE that.

3) Then there

Of course IMO the Best Badd Brother was saved for last. Now I have loved this entire series and from the very first book I knew that Xavier's book would be the one that I wanted the most. I instantly loved his character.

The youngest of the Badd Boys, Xavier for me was completely different from the rest of the boys. For one he didn't have the Alpha instincts that the rest of them had but there was something about him that I loved. One would call him a genius and while that is definitely true for
I'm gonna say 3 stars... but rounded up because Xavier was just too cute and it was a tough subject to tackle successfully.

Xavier is only 20, but he's got a lot going for him. He's a genius, sexy to the point of beautiful and hung like a horse. But life hasn't been easy for him being high functioning ASD(autism) with savant tendencies. I liked how the author made that clarification because some authors write people on the high end of the autism spectrum as being like 'Rain Man'. Not true. Most

A love so sweet... and sizzling!

They say the best is always left for last. I may argue a wee bit as each book in this series has been a whirlwind of all the things that make me love reading! Warm characters and heated romance surrounded by loving (and chaotic) family. What was not to love? Even though I went into this last book with a quiet sob of mourning I knew it was Xavier’s story and I have been waiting (im)patiently for it….

Xavier was quiet with not a lot to say but he still managed to

When the Wilders said, "Best book we've written", they were being modest. It's the epitome of heart, heat, and home.
Badd Boy not only marks their 100th book, it brought the Badd Brothers series to full circle.

Xavier Badd, is the youngest of eight. He's the smartest of the clan, the most sensitive and perceptive. While he struggles to understand some of the norms of society, he's also has to learn trust. Xavier knows he can count on his family, but he's a "Badd", and there are just some things

Of all of the brothers, I have to say that Xavier is my favorite and his story touched my heart. He made me smile, swoon, he broke my heart, he made me want to protect him, he made me love him! The youngest of the BADD brothers stumbles upon a damsel in distress and rushes to her rescue! Ok, he helped the beautiful woman who fell while doing a yoga pose and hit her head. He speaks in such proper English that she is taken aback, but she is intrigued by him. He's so smart and well spoken, and the ...more
This is the youngest Badd brothers’ story. I read a few in the series and was always curious about Xavier the boy genius. His story made me laugh and cry. It was also good seeing what his brothers are up to.

I received a copy of this book from the author.

This is my first 5* read for 2018. Xavier Badd has been a favorite Badd Brother of mine the whole series and to finally get his book and learn more about him was fantastic.

There’s so many questions answered about X in this book. I loved the brotherly advice Sebastian, the eldest Badd, gives Xavier in this novel.

Meeting Harlow aka Low is the miracle Xavier needed to be able to live a life of love. Not only for himself but for a woman. Full of

Xavier Badd, what a cutie. What a sweet romance with a twist of course. Harlow Grace was just right for him. Complete opposites for this couple. It was love at first sight. A sweet love story that just makes you go awww.

Yes, I really thought this was the last of the Badd Clan but the author informs us there is more on the way in the sneek peek and it sure is going to be interesting. Oh gosh what a great twist, didn't see it coming. Can't wait for more info on book 9. Looking forward to this.

I love these Badd Brothers! Xavier especially! He is just as hot as his brothers but he's different. And I love it! He's not the Disney version of Prince Charming; he's real and has personality quirks but is so earnest, it just makes you love him. He's completely unaware how attractive he is and how sweet he can be and that just makes him even better!

I love the whole Badd family. Every last one of them. I'm sad to see these amazingly, hot guys' stories end but assuredly, I will be reading this

What can I say, but Xavier is by far my FAVORITE BADD BROTHER!!!!!!!!! As I predicted he would be. I was completely addicted to this book from the beginning. It is refreshing to read about a character who is so unlike most people, that I couldn't help but fall in love like Low did. Their chemistry was instant and believable and I cherished every minute I spent with them.

Also, I am excited that we get to find out more about the mysterious BADD cousins!

While I enjoyed all the Badd boy’s stories over the past year, I thought no one could top the twins. However, I was terribly mistaken. This journey Jasinda has taken us on over the past 8 books has been such a fun and exhilarating one, to see each of the Badd brother’s lives unfold one after one and intertwine throughout all the books. You keep getting glimpses of the other characters and it’s truly made this a journey and not just reading another book. While I am sad to see this group of ...more

After her college friends post an old video online, she's had it and decides to take a break from Hollywood and her agent tells her about Ketchikan, Alaska.

This book. This is hands down my favorite book in the series! The author did truly, in my opinion, save the best Badd Boy for last!

There were so many things I loved about this book. Xavier’s “quirks” were endearing to him. I loved that Low told him on several occasions to be yourself and not try to be anyone else. That those quirks are a part of him and she loved him just the way he was.

Their love was undeniable, though they both tried. It’s that bone deep kind of love that everyone is looking

Omg. The wait of going through seven books before getting to Xavier's book was totally and completely worth the wait. You can't help but fall in love with his sweet self throughout the other brother's books. And then you get to this book and you just completely lose your entire heart to Xavier Badd because he is just the kindest sweetest soul you've ever read about.

Xavier is a rather different kind of person. He's a

I knew reading Badd Boy would be bittersweet. Bitter because its the last book and conclusion in the Badd Brothers Series and sweet because I couldnt wait for Xander to get his story.

Badd Boy is Xander Badd and Harlow Graces story.
Xander is the youngest of the 8 brothers. Sebastian, Zane,Brock, Baxter, Canaan, Corin and lucian all found their HEA,Only Xander is single, and hes the odd one out. His IQ is very, very high, I teaches himself ancient languages for fun only and his brain never shuts

I absolutely loved this book. It didnt have the same smut as the other books but was not lacking interest in the least. I really enjoyed how Wilder brought in her own personal experiences with autism and based a character off of her experience. It was refreshing to see an author not shy away from the sometimes taboo topic but embrace it and show the world how truly special they are. We read as Xavier goes through the things that make him him. Why he speaks the way he does, his issues with touch, ...more

I have read every book in this series; it’s ALMOST a love hate thing. Some I’ve liked quite a bit others not so much; but this one I LOVED.

Xavier fascinates me to no end and is a complete puzzle. There is so much going on with him at any given time you’re never sure what is going on. At 50 percent I was crying

A few examples of his thought process…’ I had always been under the impression that a sports bra was intended to minimize the size and weight of a women’s breasts during exercise, to
So heartfelt about a young man with high-functioning autism. You will definitely have the feels going for this emotionally challenging romance. Xavier was one unique individual and Harlow fell for the man hook, line and sinker. It was sweet and beautiful and HOTT! Loved this story and the characters. The author pulls you in from the very first page and doesn’t let go. And, of course, the rest of the Badd brothers show up like the reader expects. One amazing read!!!

Beautiful love story, with HOT, hot, HOT love scenes.

I'll be honest this book is my favorite. Xavier and his story brought me to tears, twice! I love all the Badd boys but Xaiver holds a special place in my heart. If you haven't read the others then please do. You won't regret it.

The series has finally come to an end. The most anticipated book of the year is here. And to add a cherry on the top, it is the author's 100th release!!

Xavier Badd is a shy nerd and the baby of his family. His hobby is to create robots in his free time. He prefers to stay in the background but doesn't like anyone touching him.

Lo is a Hollywood actress who escaped to Alaska from the media. There she meets Xavier and an unlikely relationship commences. Their chemistry and emotional intensity is

Talk about saving the best (or Badd) for last!!!

Xavier is just.........everything.

This is not your typical boy meets girl romance, it's so much more, it's soul meets soul and becomes whole!

While it has all of the heat we love from these Badd brothers, this one will touch your heart in way that will stay with you well after "The End"

I've loved ever one of the Badd brothers! Seriously some of Jasinda and Jack's best stuff! And now there's more?! YES!!!!!! I can't freaking wait!!
