Brock Badd is everything except bad. He’s sexy, sweet, strong, and every other good thing I never thought I wanted in a man. I always thought I needed the real bad boys, the ones that screw you senseless and pull your hair and aren’t there to talk about it in the morning.
I’ve always been a one-night stand kind of girl, and sometimes I wouldn’t even stick around for a full night. Brock was supposed to be a one-night stand—that’s how it started out, at least. Only, what was supposed to be a fun one-time-only hookup with a hot local guy ended up with me discovering Brock’s potency six different ways by breakfast.
That was all it took. One night with Brock, and I was hooked. But hooked doesn’t mean ready for a relationship.
That’s what he wants. And deep down, I’m starting to fear that’s what I want too.
I’m just not sure I’m ready for it.
I mean, he’s the literal epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, plus he’s a pilot…with a six-pack and perfect hair and a smile to melt me from the inside out. How’s a girl supposed to resist that? I couldn’t. I can’t. I’ve tried, but I keep going back for more.
I’ve got it bad, real BADD.
Badd To The Bone by Jasinda Wilder is the third book in the Badd Brothers series. This book is quite different from the two previous Badd Brothers books. First of all, most of the story takes place outside of Ketchikan, Alaska. There is very little of the Badd Brothers and their family dynamics in this book. In fact, Badd To The Bone is not really a Badd Brothers story even though Brock Badd is the hero. This is Claire Collins story and it’s a doozy.
I have gone back and forth on how to rate this book. I have deleted several drafts of this review. I have struggled with my reactions to this book because it was not one of my favorite Jasinda Wilder books. I honestly did not like the heroine Claire Collins.
Although the Badd Brothers series is more in the erotic romance genre, there was almost too much sex. At times I felt like the sex was overshadowing the story and it started to get too predictable and a bit boring. In many ways Brock Badd seemed like a sexual puppet dancing to Claire Collins whims. Usually at this point I put the book down or start skimming to the end. What held me back from doing so was my faith in Jasinda Wilder as a writer. I knew she had more to tell the readers. There was more to Claire than her nympho tendencies and kinky fantasies. There was something hiding beneath the surface, something bigger than her daddy issues and relationship issues. As the story unfolded and revelations about Claire’s past come to light, it is only the beginning of Claire’s journey. A very broken woman striving to piece herself back together one tear drop at a time. It takes courage to face the demons that haunt your soul. It takes even more courage to put them to rest and take that first step towards a healthy future.
I admired how Brock Badd was willing to fight for the woman he loved. He knew he couldn’t fix her but he could hold her together when all the pieces of her soul were shattering beyond her control. He gave her the courage to finally heal.
This is why I gave this book 5 Stars. Jasinda Wilder took a very harsh character on an emotional journey that brought her the right kind love in the end.
I am looking forward to heading back to Ketchikan, Alaska for more Badd Brothers romantic adventures.

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.
So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…
And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.
Eight brothers, one bar.
Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?
I kinda think so.
Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.
I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it—at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…
Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination—and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.

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.
