Nothing good comes after the third date.

See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

What a pleasantly delightful read this was for me. Bad Penny by Staci Hart was sweet, sexy and so much fun to read. Just an overall great read. A little of this and a little of that, made this book such an enjoyable read.

Penny does not do anything that is permanent or serious. I mean she can’t even stick to one hair color, much less a man! I absolutely loved her. I wanted to be her friend. I do not think I have ever crushed on a female character so hard. She was funny, feisty and sexy and not at all scared to just be herself and to hell with everyone else. You could not help but love her and her crazy antics.

Bodie was all man! He was so sexy, smart and oh so sweet. He was so ready to dismantle all of Penny’s rules. But he was also very patient with her, seeming to know when he needs to push her and when he needed to step back. He just seemed to understand her fears and wanted to reassure her. He was what she needed, even when she did not even know it.

Penney and Bodie found an instant attraction to each other the instant they meet. But because of previous experiences, Penny tends to close off with men and only enjoys them on the short term. But as these two spend more time together, they find themselves falling. But can Bodie penetrate through Penny’s wall?

These two had such a steamy and hot chemistry. You could see why it was hard to stay away from each other. I loved this story! It had a little bit of everything. It was a funny, sexy and so very steamy read from start to finish. I loved the characters and the story so much. I could not stop reading.
