In this explosive novel from bestselling author Jen McLaughlin, a good girl falls for the ultimate bad boy: her stepbrother. Perfect for fans of Sabrina Paige, Caitlin Daire, and Krista Lakes, Bad Romance proves that passion can be so wrong it’s right.

Seven years in the army will change a guy. But after a shoulder wound ends his career as a sniper, Jackson Worthington finds himself back home, fighting a battle that’s all too familiar: keeping his hands off Lily Hastings. She’s still her rich daddy’s little angel, innocent, impossibly lovely, as squeaky-clean as Jackson is dirty. And she’s still his stepsister—forbidden but not forgotten, not after the soul-melting kiss that got him kicked out of the house at eighteen. He couldn’t resist her then. How the hell can he resist her now?

Lily is about to marry a man she doesn’t love, and commit to a high-stress job she hates, all to please the father who controls every waking moment of her life. On top of everything, her teenage crush is back, with a sleek, chiseled body and a trace of the rebellious boy whose lips sealed her fate. Jackson’s timing couldn’t be worse . . . or better. Because Lily’s all grown up, too. She’s aching for another taste. And for the first time, she’s ready to be a bad girl.

"I'm done resisting this. Done fighting. I'm not a good-enough guy to do it."

MY THOUGHTS: Ever since reading her OUT OF LINE Series, Jen McLaughlin has always been on top of my favorite authors list. And I fell in love with her even more with BAD ROMANCE – this one is sexier, and even more complicated: falling in love with your stepbrother!

She’s considered to be the good girl and he’s the bad guy, for the first time in her life, she wanted to do something for herself and not for anyone else. Now, if only she was brave enough to step out of her good girl persona and take some risk, and stop making some stupid decisions in the process.

He was her first kiss, and she had never forgotten about that fact. But apparently he forgot about her since she had sent him several care packages and several letters and he didn’t even have the decency to reply.

Oh boy was she ever wrong. He tried to stop the attraction and perverted thoughts he has on his stepsister. He already tarnished her then and he’d do everything in his power to resist her this time – but he could only do so much.

It was sinfully hot, enough to sizzle your senses. I love/hate the anticipation that Jen brought, I think I kept holding on my breath until the end. I didn’t know what would happen between the two. All I know is after what they have been through – they deserve their happy ending.
