BADD Brother Series – Book 2
By Jasinda Wilder
Release Date: January 20, 2017
I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.
The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him.
And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me.
Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars.
And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.
The eight sexy BADD brothers are back and not only serving up the cocktails but also serving up some red hot, panty melting action in Ketchikan, Alaska. We met the oldest brother, the sexy bar proprietor, Sebastian Badd in the first book, Badd Motherf*cker. Now it’s time to meet another BADD boy in the second book, Badd Ass.
The seven younger BADD brothers left Ketchikan to pursue their own dreams, leaving Sebastian behind to run the family bar. After their father passed away, his seven brothers were forced to return home for one year and help run the legacy he left behind. A bartender, a Navy Seal, a semi-pro football player, a sexy stunt pilot, rock star twins, a wanderlust soul,and a certified genius are serving up the sexy along with the cocktails. The ladies are flocking to the bar with hopes of experiencing a whole lot of BADD. It’s going to take some very special women to handle the BADD boys.
Zane Badd was the first brother to return home. He resigned from his commission as a Navy Seal to return home to Ketchikan to carry out the stipulations of his father’s will for his older brother Sebastian, who has sacrificed everything for them. Upon returning home he finds his older brother is falling in love and heading towards the alter. Watching his brother experience the ins and outs of a committed relationship is an eye opener. For the first time in his life he is questioning if there is more to his own life than being a soldier and a brother. He’s definitely not ready for love and commitment but sees the potential down the road. For now he’s happy to please the ladies, enjoy the pleasures of one night stand hook ups, hang with his brothers, and resettle into Ketchikan life. That mantra falls to pieces when his younger brothers cuts his leg in a drunken bout at Sebastian’s wedding. The sexy medic that steps up to help has his full attention. He is taking this sexy medic home and straight to his bed. A one night stand that blows his mind and leaves him wanting more. He intends to monopolize every moment of her free vacation time burning up the sheets and bringing down the house. He never intended to fall in love.
Amaratha ( Mara ) Quinn is not the typical female looking for love, marriage, and happily ever after. In fact she has never really done relationships and prefers one night stand hookups. She has a healthy sex drive and satisifies it without expectations of more. She’s a one and done girl. She has a good career and has made a life for herself in San Francisco. It was great until her best friend moved to Seattle and made her life seem lonely. She’s heading to Ketchikan to meet up with her best friend Claire for a few days of vacation and fun. While waiting for Claire’s cruise ship to arrive she wanders into a bar that is throwing an open wedding party and meets one of the sexiest men she has laid eyes on. He’s the perfect male specimen to scratch her itch and add to her vacation fun. A one night stand that literally melts her panties. Maybe she should rethink the one and done and have a vacation fling.
The chemistry between Zane and Mara is sizzling hot. They are burning up the sheets and finding out there is more to sex when they open their minds and hearts to the possibilities. A vacation fling may change their lives forever.
I loved this book. It was not only loaded with erotic romance, it was light hearted, fun, and loaded with BADD charm. Not only did the reader get to know Zane Badd but also began to see the distinct personalities of all of the BADD boys. I have fallen in love with each of these BADD boys and can’t wait to see which one falls next.
