Badass: A Stepbrother SEAL Romance
I f**ked a SEAL—the human kind, the kind who shoots terrorists, sports rock hard abs and tattooed biceps, and scores an easy lay with every girl he ever wants.
I should’ve known better. I should be studying harbor seals’ breeding habits, not conducting my own research into mating rituals of the Navy variety.
He’s a jackass. An arrogant, womanizing, patronizing, Harley-riding jerk.
A one-night stand. One night of the most incredible sex I’ve ever had. Shane is trained to kill with his bare hands in 300 different ways—and he knows 300 ways to f**k me, too.
Now my father is engaged to his mother. And we’re heading to Mexico for the wedding. The prick is blackmailing me. He’s threatening to ruin their big day if I don’t surrender to his demands.
Quit is not in his vocabulary. I hate him, but I know he’ll never give up until he gets everything he wants.
Screw that! I won’t give up—I’ll never submit to America’s cockiest badass.
Badass is the first book I have read by these authors and I was gifted a copy of the book to read for Gemma reads too much.
Badass is in fact actually a real cutie pie lol
Shane tries really hard to be an asshole but honestly I never really believed it. He’s just a sad little boy hiding behind the “I don’t have lovers I fuck” stereotype
I really liked Cassie she’s just a nice genuine girl, I think she falls for Shane from the very first moment.
And really what’s not to like he’s macho and alpha I love his bossy sexy moments. Even when he’s being a dick he’s still really quite nice with it.
My lord there’s lots of bossy sexy sex, Shane is a tiny bit Dom which only makes him sexier and slightly more swoon worthy.
The whole biker badass scene in the desert was a bit random and extreme.
I get that the whole step sibling thing is a bit taboo but really, well there not are they!!!! This bugs me about every step brother book…. You are not blood relatives in ANY way!!!
Anyhoo I liked this book Cassie and Shane had brilliant chemistry and I loved how their relationship played out. It didn’t feel like instant love or really rushed, but I liked the lust and I liked the love too.
Badass gets 3.5 stars from me.
