5 Distraction to Downfall Stars

OH my gah. OH MY gah. OH MY GAH!!!! Jess and Allie just stole my heart. These two characters are so utterly perfect for one another. Their love story was such a treat to watch unfold.

Jesse is the proverbial hot shot manwhore jock, or so Allie thinks. However, there’s so much more to his story. After meeting Jess and Lo in the last book I definitely felt for them both. He had a special place in my heart then, but it’s grown exponentially after reading this book. He

Charleigh Rose has given me not only my new favorite Bad Habits book but also my favorite Bad Habits couple. Jesse and Allie are everything, and their story, Bad Influence is emotional, heartbreaking, and sexy AF. Charleigh owned my heart with these two!

Jesse is a hero who will break your heart. He has that cocky, bad boy vibe, and he has just the right amount of arrogance to make him sexy, that thin line where it is entertaining and you

Oh. My. God. A New Bad Love book?!?!?! I'm so freakin excited!!!!!


After falling in love with Asher, Dare & Camden (Sebastian too but thats another series) I know I could give this five stars without seeing a cover, reading a synopsis or knowing who this one will be about. Charleigh Rose is that damn good! Sooo,

She pushes, I push back, neither one of us wanting to be the first to bend—the first to show something real.

Classic Charleigh Rose new adult goodness. Allie and Jess were legit, “we shouldn’t do this” fire. I love it when the mains want each other too badly to resist. There’s some push and pull, but once they get going it is so good. Allie gave me some Peyton from OTH vibes, but way more likable. She just has reasons to be sad, and loves her some music. Jess. Oh Jess. The outsider trying to blen
Love is real. Powerful. It has the potential to destroy you. To start wars and end lives. Love is a weapon. Love is dangerous, and I want nothing to do with it.

Bad Influence just sucked me in big time. I couldn’t read fast enough. Charleigh Rose just broke my heart and then put it back together again.

Jesse is self destructive. Cocky, full of swag and funny as hell. The guy had me swooning so hard.
He pushes everyone he gets close to away even though he doesn’t really mean to. He doesn’t know how

I have recently started reading Charleigh Rose's book and have fallen in love with her characters. They are truly one of a kind and I have really enjoyed getting to know the ones in this series. In Bad Influence, readers will be taken on an angsty journey with Allie and Jess as their figure out what they want out of life while going to school and doing what college kids do.

I literally just finished this baby this morning and I'm still processing this wonderful and addictive story. Jesse was so freaking hot! I love him and I really loved Allie. She was kind of fierce and I just really digged her, I want to be her bff and go to shows together.

These two had a sort of meet cute, even though it technically wasn't the first time they met. Jess is trying to keep one of his sicko hook-ups away from him and so he uses Allie has his fake girlfriend and tha

Charleigh Rose is one of my auto-buy authors; she releases a book, I'm going to read it. I was very excited that Jesse was getting a book and I couldn't wait to have it in my hands!

All Allie wants to do is finish school and figure out what she wants to do with her life. Ever since her dad died, it's been hard to move on. When Jesse enters her life, Allie knows he's bad news. But when she starts working for his sister, it's pretty hard to ignore him. Jesse is intrigued by Allie, especially since
Of course that he fucks everything that walks and she is a virgin. Of course *facepalm* why do I even bother trying to find something worth reading in romance these days

The hero is disgusting pig who wants to sleep with heroine and then fucks someone else and then two minutes later he wants to be with heroine again. He is an immature pig and heroine is weak moron

OH MY DAYSSSSS!! I fell in love with Jesse back in BAD INTENTIONS and was so excited to hear he would be getting his own book. I’ve been a fan of Charleigh Rose since the beginning and I feel like her writing has just got better and better with every new release. As much as I adore BAD HABIT (which is Book 1 in this series) I feel like BAD INFLUENCE has blown all the previous books out the water.
From the minute I started reading, I was completely hooked. I fell hard for Allie, I thought she was

Nobody, and I mean nobody, writes a broken, broody, bloody-knuckled bad-boy like Charleigh Rose. Bad Influence was one of my most anticipated books of 2019, and Jesse did NOT disappoint. I miss him already! 5 butterscotch flavored stars! (+ 1 strawberry for Jess)

Gah! This was my first time reading anything by Charleigh Rose and let me tell you, I was truly impressed with both the author and the book. Bad Influence is unquestionably one of the best new adult romance novels that I've ever read. It contained a little bit of everything, and checked all the marks for me. It was sexy, angsty, emotional and wonderfully written. It's a richly developed and well plotted story. Everything about it just jumped off the page, almost taking on life, as if it were hap ...more

5 "The best things never are...." Stars

Charleigh Rose writes amazing, edgy New Adult romance. I was swept away, back to River's Edge, pleasantly surprised at who the anti-hero of this story was and even more excited to see him paired with his perfect match. This story was a bad boy's fall from achieved grace through circumstances in which he feels a certain obligation and a quirky girl who's different than the rest trying to

4.5 " Butterscotch Suckers" Stars
I was so excited about Bad Influence that when I got my ARC, I jumped on it right away and couldn’t put it down! With each new book in the Bad Love Series, it’s always a pleasure to rediscover my dear characters and let’s just say that Jesse Shepherd all grown up sounded so intriguing and alluring. Charleigh Rose unquestionably fashioned another very captivating and spicy story with an emotional tone.

OMG, I can't believe what I was reading the last few days 😵!

This is the first book I've read by Charleigh Rose and I fell so in love with her writing and her characters, that I can't wait to read the first two book ("Bad Habit" and "Bad Intentions") from this series ❤!

"Bad Influence" is so perfect book and unforgettable characters!

I love them so much and they got under my skin from page one 💗.

I'm going to keep this review quick and to the point. I just finished Bad Influence. To be honest, I liked it but I didn't love it. I needed more from the story and the connection between the characters. Something was lacking for me which made the story feel a little off.

Bad Influence is the third book in the Bad Love series and is told from the point of view of Allie and Jesse and can be read as a complete standalone. However, there were mentions of other ch

If someone want to hear my reccomendations about this book I've got 3 words to say about Bad Ifluence, Charleigh Rose and Jess with Allie : LOVE THEM HARD!

I want to be their roommate, with my headphones on (sometimes)...
I want to be their big sister, I'm sure - me & Lo could rock as siblings...
I want to be their best friend, just to have them all around...

5* read.

I've been counting the days down for this book and was really wishing that it would live up the the high expectations I'd built up for it. Thats the problem sometimes when your really looking forward to a certain book or author you can actually over build it it up too high in your mind and then it can't possibly live up to what you imagine it to be. Luckily that wasn't the case with this book and it lived up to its expectations and more. Although this is book 3 in the Bad Love series it

3.5 stars

Overall I enjoyed this! I really loved the initial meeting and first few subsequent encounters between the couple. Jesse and Allie felt perfect for each other and overall I loved their story. However, this had an added element/"reveal"/conflict, and to keep it brief, it is something I have seen wayyyyy too many times in new adult romance. I'm pretty of over this "thing", and predicted what it was pretty early on. It just felt pointless and I wish something more unique could have happe
Jesse freaking Shepherd and his Allison, aka Allie Girl or Dum-Dum girl, were utter excellence! These two vulnerable souls have become no doubt my favourite couple of the Bad Love series. Their igniting chemistry was off the charts and luscious. I had been anticipating lil Jesse's book ever since I read Bad Intentions. And lil Jesse ain't the sweet bean anymore; he is a grumpy manwhore with a broken soul which made me fall for him even more.

Goddamn it! The scene with the sucker was a whole other

Oh my goodness.

Let me start by saying that I LOVE absolutely everything about Bad Influence. I love the cover, the characters, the plot, the story, the pacing, the writing. Ugh, I am completely and totally in love.

"You’re a bad influence." I smirk, taking another step, effectively closing the distance between us."I’ve been called worse."

I was waiting for Jessie’s book since he appeared in Bad Intensions as Lo’s younger brother. Now he’s all mature and it’s official- I’m a 100% #JessiesGirl. Bad Influence completely sucked me in the whirlwind of emotions, angst and lust. And despite that I adore Allie as a heroine, it’s Jessie who totally stole my heart. Broken heroes are my weakness and although they can

*arc in exchange for an honest review, thank you to Charleigh Rose and Enticing Journey Book Promotions for giving me the opportunity*

Straight off the bat, I really liked Allie. She gave me major Peyton Sawyer (a character from One Tree Hill for those who are too young to remember) vibes with her love of music, her tendency to carry a portable cd player, and her interest in a career that dealt with the business side of music. I liked Jesse. I'll go ahead and say that Dare from Bad Intentions and

I needed a Jess when I was in college! Just when you think you can’t love this series more, the author gives us Jess and Allie. This cocky, alpha will steal your heart and you won’t want it back.

Jess was all set to go away to college on a lacrosse scholarship. He wanted to get away and leave all the crap behind him. Then that dream evaporated. Gone just like that. Jess is tortured by the secrets he keeps. They may just tear him apart.

Now he’s back home flounde

***** 5 ANGSTY STARS!! *****

Charleigh Rose is the queen of angst. She writes it, I one-click it. I don't care what it is because I know it is going to take me away to a place of young love, angst, a whirl of emotions, and hot and steamy sex. I have been waiting for Jesse's book since he made his young and cocky appearance known in Bad Intentions, and I'm thrilled to say that he exceeded every expectation I had - and Allie was the literally the strawberry lollipop on top!

Totally addictive, I could not put this book down!!

From the very beginning of this book I was hooked.
Allie's introduction to the story really pulls on the heart, the very beginning is the night Allie lost her dad, then goes onto her moving to college, to a new town.
Allie is a loner, she's an old soul in a young body, her dad who was a musician was like her best friend and my heart completely felt for her, I immediately liked Allie and only wanted good things for her as the story progressed.
