Blog Tour and Giveaway: Bad Things by R.K. Lilley

Bad Things by R.K. Lilley


Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.

One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?

For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

*****Stephanie's Review*****

I freaking loooved this book!! This is one of my favorites for this year, for sure!  I was really excited for this book, as I loved the Up In The Air series and Tristan was one of my favorite characters from that series.  I sometimes think that it is hard to pull a supporting character with such strong personality traits from one series and give him or her their own book and still keep true to the original character that was in the first series.  However, R.K. Lilley does an amazing job of this.  Tristan is exactly like I would have expected him to be after meeting him in the Up In the Air series.  He is the witty, smartass, bad boy, tattoos and everything, that I expected him to be and more.  While I did not feel like I knew Danika as well as Tristan from reading Up In the Air series, I connected with her right away.  I instantly liked her.  She is not the innocent, young girl you might have thought she was when she met Tristan.  She is a strong and independent character who knows what she wants and does not hold back.  She speaks her mind, and I love that about her.  They both have flaws and horrible tempers, but this definitely adds to the dynamic of their relationship.

They meet and make a very valiant attempt at friendship, but the attraction is just too strong for them to resist.  After living in the same house for weeks, they have an amazing friendship to base their relationship on.  They genuinely enjoy each other’s company, which is refreshing for both of them.  Their friendship/relationship is not perfect or pretty all the time.  There are ups and downs that had me feeling every emotion with them. And if you are looking for heat and a dom/sub relationship that is not the typical one, this book has it! Tristan and Danika only follow those rolls in the bedroom and it makes for some very hot sex.  If you have read the Up In the Air series, you know how this turns out, and for me that just made this book that much more amazing. I needed to know what was going to happen next, how they were eventually going to get the place they are in that series.

Once again the supporting characters in this book are amazing! I loved Jared, Tristan’s brother. He is an amazing person with such a big heart, but not at all perfect. And I do believe I have found my very first book girlfriend in Frankie.  She’s a hot domme and a tattoo artist, witty as hell and a great friend. 

This book made me laugh.  It made me hot. It made me cry.  It left me wanting more. While there is not a cliffie, I am still dying for the second book. I need more Tristan and Danika, and if Frankie happens to be there, too, all the better!
