I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
One punch took him from Hollywood’s Golden Boy to Bad Boy Brody.
The media didn’t care he was grieving his brother’s death. They descended on him, but to change his reputation, his manager got him a deal.
Act in an indie film, one that already had Oscar buzz, and he’d get the movie roles he needed to secure his future.
He took the deal.
Yet he wasn’t prepared for the real-life people behind the script. He wasn’t prepared for the murder the movie was based on. And he really wasn’t prepared for her, the biggest secret of all.
She was wild. She was beautiful. She defied gravity.
But was she the leading role that would tame him?
Bad Boy Brody caught me by surprise. This book felt like a departure from Tijan’s regular stuff. It was nothing like I expected; it was a refreshing take on the genre, one that made me think, feel, and remember exactly why I love Tijan. She doesn’t serve you up a formulary romance novel, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I think what touched me most was not really anything to do with Brody but rather the relationship between Shoal, Shiloh, and Morgan. While I was pleased to see the bad boy get his act in order, Morgan carried the book. Her eccentricities and inability (or lack of desire) to be around other humans made her so interesting. Furthermore, what I appreciated most is that Tijan brought the story full circle…after a few plot twists.
The secondary characters were brushed over a bit, and I never felt as though I had a good grasp on them. I’m still a bit puzzled over one of the brothers and wished I could have learned more about the stepsister.
Overall, it’s an interesting read. Not my favorite Tijan story, but then again, I am a die-hard Mason Kade fan (sorry Brody).
