Badd Daddy is the 12th story in the Badd Brothers Series and it follows the story of Lucas and Olivia. Now, I'll be 100% honest with you, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into with this book. I think I've only read one book in this series and have so many that I really need to get caught up on. Even with being behind in this series, the synopsis of this one was too hard to pass up and let me tell you, this book does not disappoint.

I love the Badd family!

Here we have Lucas Badd. You could say he's the patriarch of the bunch of them. And he is, to an extent. In this book, we learn about Lucas, and his twin brother, Liam, who is the father of the original Badd brothers. We see what drove them to be the men they became. And boy! What a story that was!

We also get to see Lucas fall in love with Olivia Goode. Their love was sweet and just perfect. It took me a bit to really like Liv. At the same time, I sort of identified with

OH Just WOW. The Badd family just keeps growing and so does the joy in my heart. This family just melts me in every way. They are strong, stubborn, commanding and have no trouble speaking their minds. They are family oriented and loyal to a fault. These men know what they want and do whatever it takes to get it, especially when it comes to the women in their lives. When it comes to their women we see their inner soft side as well as some very heated moments. Kudos Ms. Wilder for writing amazing ...more

Lucas Badd was everything. He was nothing I thought he was from his previous mentions in the Badd series.

I loved his story

I felt for Lucas. His character Was executed with such depth of understanding why he is the way he is.

Author Jasinda Wilder developed Lucas as one of those characters we could relate to when it comes to changing for the better and having that someone that motivates you to, and that someone is Yourself!

Olivia Goode is the perfect push he needs to snap him out of his funk

Just when you think you have met them all and have gotten to know all of the Badd boys, in walks the Badd-est of them all...Lucas Badd, father to the triplet cousins of the original Badd brothers in the first books of this series. Yep, Roman, Remington and Ramsey's father Lucas is living in the same little Alaskan town as all of the other Badds and he is something else. Gruff, grumpy, vulgar language, and in bad shape. He's on the wagon, out of shape, still limping from a bad leg break in an ...more

A great surprise; Lucas Badd is my favourite Badd.

I’m a huge fan of this author and was mourning the loss of the Badd brothers so I was really happy to see that Lucas Badd would be telling his story.

Lucas Badd has spent most of his life being drunk so he was a useless dad to his 3 sons. The history between him and his twin brother kept him far away from Ketchikan, Alaska but now he’s back, a year sober and hoping to rebuild his

"I shouldn't enjoy the way he looked at me—I didn't have the heart space for a man larger than life like Lucas Badd."

Um...I'm rethinking silver fox. Now I'm moving toward #GrizzlyFox or #GrumpyFox with some silver thrown in. Lucas is the father of mountainous grown men that he calls his 'boys'. Doesn't it just make you want to start singing #BaddBoys? He was raised in Ketchikan, Alaska so it's home... a place he's been running from for 40 yrs. I've been so intrigued to finally learn

Dear Jasinda,

From the moment I started this series with Badd Motherf*cker I fell in love. Fell in love with the characters, the town, and how this family was coming together. Actually, through these books, I've added Alaska to my bucket list of places to visit.

With each book, each character we met, the pieces of this family were coming together. Pieces that kept us coming back for more. Needless to say, even after you wrapped the series (or so we thought) with Badd Medicine I was always

I have to say that I loved this latest installment in the Badd family. Lucas Badd is one grumpy and stubborn man with a very disappointing past. Olivia Goode is a widow with 5 grown daughters who's making it on her own as an interior designer in Alaska. They're unlikely friends and an even more impossible couple. Olivia sees something in Lucas that he deosn't see. She thinks he's funny, obscene, and is determined to lift his spirits. Lucas is entranced with 'Liv. She's an angel to him and he ...more

I loved that Lucas was a vulgar man, and I loved how he tried his best when Liv was around. I really liked this book, and I loved seeing the whole gang again.

When Badd meets Goode….
What a surprise Lucas’ story was! If you are a reader of the Badd Brothers series than you are more than familiar how this father of triplets shaped his son’s lives. The brothers had few good memories of their Dad and now the time for secrets was over…

Lucas was back among family but that didn’t mean he was actually living. Forgiveness. Acceptance. Happiness. He was stuck in an isolated rut with a future he couldn’t see. Thankfully, it wasn’t too late… Olivia was in Alaska

As I started to read this book I wondered why the guy on the cover was on the cover, he didn't match the Lucas at the start of the book. But by the end of the book, he was spot on, Lucas went through a big transformation. I liked seeing Lucas change and how Liv was the catalyst to the change. Yes there romance/courtship/dating was awesome, but better was their friendship, the way from the start they were brutally honest with each other, covering some touchy subjects from their past.

Book 12 in this series and it just keeps giving. I thought this series was over after book 8 but with new family members coming to the table, moving it forward. This book is about Lucas Badd and for me it was one of most emotional of all the series to date. This book most definitely didn't disappoint at all.

Lucas and Olivia are complete opposite and although they are they are completely ment to be. They start out a building a friendship, Lucas however doesn't feel like he much deserves Olivia in

From the author of "Big Girls Do It"... this was----disappointing to say the least.

***Spoilers Ahead***

A complete filler mess of a book to bridge you to the "Goode Girls" series. It went something like this:

1. Man meets woman (both 40+) - yea representation!
2. Wait. On their 2nd meeting (2ND MEETING!) she decides to be straight with him. She likes him a lot but he's FAT so they can only be friends.
3. Liv has to leave the country due to some super contrived family drama (happening with not 1,

I can't even begin to tell you how long I've been waiting for this story to happen. I wasn't even sure if it would happen, but when it came to theBaddmen, there was a big hole in the story that needed to be filled. And the only one who could fill that would the source himself, Lucas Badd akaBadd Daddy.

I had no idea what to expect this one, but it's definitely the most emotional story yet in this extensive series. I've read about 70% of the books in the Badd Brothers series, so I'd say that I

Man, I'm glad Badd's moving on.
That's Goode! Keep it up!

And it's almost supernatural phenomenal that there is finally a real love story in the romance genre with over 40/60 year old characters and then even so wonderfully written and credible.
That's reassuring and gives hope, not everything ends with 40.

Opposites attract each other and Olivia and Lukas couldn't be more different, where they come from, what they experienced, what shaped them and what they want from life. But they find

I hate to admit that I had a hard time getting into this latest installment of one of my favorite series ever... I thought maybe it was one of the brothers becoming a dad based on the title ( I don't read blurbs).... When I discovered the characters I instantly thought I was not going to enjoy this story.... The twins dad has had a bad rep when mentioned in past books so why would I want to read his story right?!?
Well I gotta say, that old, grouchy, man I didn't like really WON ME OVER!!! He's
Lora Borzelleca
I would have given it 4 Stars because I really did enjoy the story. I liked it...BUT...I am unsure if maybe I am just reading into it too much or being sensitive about it but in the past couple books of hers, I have noticed she has either focused on the persons weight too much or made the focus on the extra weight on them be negative. I know the author had recently lost lots of weight and wrote some books on it and I am unsure if maybe her old feelings of being overweight are leaking out into ...more

Jodi Bird (Ruby Red Romance Review)
Talk about opposites attract. Lucas Badd was everything I didn't know I was missing. Lucas hasn't been the best father, in fact, he's been pretty crappy, but now he's back. A year sober and ready to prove to himself and his family that he can be what they need. Only, he needs to prove that to himself first.

Olivia is starting over. Her husband passed away and her girls are grown, so now it's time for her to grow her business. Meeting the man that works in the hardware store wasn't part of that

I received a free copy of this book from the author.

If you've read the Badd Brother series you know the last three novels focused on the Badd Triplets - Ram, Rem, & Rome. Badd Daddy focuses on their father, Lucas. As it turns out Lucas is the identical twin to the other 8 Badd Brothers father, Liam.

Due to events in his teen years Lucas allowed them to define the rest of his life. He missed out on a lot of his boys life as well as his own life. Choices he made came back to bite him in the

Lucas Badd has ended up back in Alaska, along with the entire Badd clan. He's come full circle...back to Alaska...back to memories of his childhood, back to memories of those awful moments in his past that had him running away years and years ago. Now he's back. Back to claim the members of his family that he's never met and back to finally try and mend his relationship with his sons.
A chance meeting with a little bit of good(e), Olivia Goode, might just be the incentive he needs to get his life

I'm so happy that Jasinda wrote about Lucas Badd. He deserved his own story and his HEA. I CANNOT imagine, what a person would go through being an Alcoholic, revisiting the past is to why he left Ketchikan in the 1st place. To change yourself to feel better about yourself. To have a purpose again, could he find someone he can truly love. You will fall in love this one, I promise. There are so many emotions - a family that wants to know their reasons why? The reason why he left? Many if he would ...more

Are you a Badd book fan? I love this series. I love that if I miss a release or two, I can still jump right back in to read the newest and still completely enjoy it.

Sometimes I am just in the mood for a good sexy read and Wilder books always deliver.

This one? Heck yes. I was all over it. I love read like this where I laugh and I swoon and goodness, It got hot and headed. Olivia and Lucas were the best. She was EXACTLY what he needed and it was a fun ride to dive into on a rainy Saturday

Surprisingly Amazing

To be honest I wasn’t sure how I felt about reading the love story and steamy scenes of a 62 year old man and a 50 ish old woman being that I’m in my mid twenties but it was actually truly amazing. It brought all the other stories together in the growing journey of the hero. However, seeing both the heroine and hero grow into who they were/are and become strong together really is powerful. Seeing the hero do a complete 180 to better himself to win his heroine just honestly

Badd Daddy by Jasinda Wilder is book 12 in her Badd Brothers Series and tells Lucas' emotional story.
In previous books, Lucas was the hard headed alcoholic who eats nails for breakfast. In Badd Daddy he shows an entirely other side of himself. He was in a bad accident and is still suffering from the consequences. His health is failing, he's estranged from his sons and at the end of the day he's alone.

Lucas Badd and Olivia Goode---I mean--why wouldn't you pick up a book that had those character names?? Let's add in the fact that this is Lucas---Badd Daddy, trying to rehab himself and his relationship with his sons. And then there is that little nugget that was dropped in previous books--he had something to do with the Badd brother's parents relationship.

This story was just perfect. I didn't know I needed all those answers until they were laid out for me. And can I just add, I love an older
