When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd.
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.

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 I am so glad that finally i can read this book in this series. Bad Influence is a story of Jesse and Ally. Jesse is Logan's little brother. I always feel some pull toward Jesse. He is such a lost character. He seems drifting with no real purpose.

Jesse a typical man whore who hides under his fake apperance. Deep inside he is lost. So lonely and scared. Until he meets Ally. Ally is a strong young woman. She lost her father and her mother abondaned her. But she keeps her chin up and shoulder sq

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

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,

Bad Influence is my newest obsession! I found myself laughing, sighing, swooning and even crying. I loved how much these characters meant to me and that every single time I pick up a book by Charleigh Rose, it becomes an instant favorite. Her stories are emotional, sexy as hell and the characters always become embedded in my heart. So if you love romance stories that will pull at your emotions, have fabulous ban

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

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)

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

“So, we’re on the same page?” “We’re not even reading the same book.”

I recently read Guys like you and instantly fell in love with Jesse. After that i grabbed bad Influence and it was okay. The whole bad love series”s plot is really common and thats why i didnt enjoy like i thought i would. But the chemistry was on fire!! For a romance book, it was dragged a big and the “secret” he was hiding form allie was predictable. The whole book was predictable! I was disappointed that it was nothing exc
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

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

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

This is the third book in the Bad Love series. I was so eager to read Jess's story and it exceeded all my expectations. Each book keeps getting better that the last. I just love the way this author writes, its so captivating and keeps you glued to the pages. There's heat and chemistry between the characters. The back and forth between the two is so funny to read.

We met Jess in the last book. He's lo's younger brother. We saw him as a sexy, mischievous

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.

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

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

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 reminiscent of innumerous romances that readers have read before—manwhore hero; innocent heroine; an enemies to lovers connection, etc. Because of this, this romance felt cliche and foreseeable leaving me saddened and neither loving nor hating Allie and Jesse. Whatever connection they formed felt lacklustre and watered-down, an unfortunate conclusion as this author’s written some steam-filled enemies to lovers romances before.

Love is real. Powerful. It has the potential

This is the 3rd book in the Bad Love series. It technically can be read as a standalone; however, you are introduced to Jesse in Bad Intentions. He is Lo's brother who is broody, protective; yet, an enigma though.

Bad Intentions: Lo and Dare (4 stars/re-read soon)

I'm so glad I found this author a while ago, because she is fantastic! I loved this one so much! I adored every book I've read from her. I read them all but 2 I think. Maybe I need to read em!

The only thing was Allie likes suckers and I really thought it was a little candy but then at a time Jesse grabbed it from her mouth and put it in his. Then I couldn't understand how he did that, until I discovered it's a lolly with a stick.. Yep I'm not the brightest light out there.. Here we call tem loll

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 💗.
