Take my advice. Never fall for your brother’s best friend.

Bracken Casey.
Our hometown’s playboy. My brother’s best friend. The man I love. He doesn’t do girlfriends. He doesn’t do commitments. He doesn’t see me as anything more than his best friend’s little sister.

Until one night changes everything. A drunken kiss leads to a drunken screw. Now he can’t keep his hands off me, and I can’t say no to him. Rules are set: No one can find out, and it won’t lead anywhere.

But rules were meant to be broken, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. Breaking every single one. Something bad is bound to happen.

Bad for You by Charity Ferrell is her latest Contemporary Forbidden Romance Novel. This story is a standalone and a Brother’s Best Friend story.

This was a truly enjoyable read. It is a fairly quick read but it wasn’t lacking for anything. Charity was able to give us a story with relatable and likable characters. She created a story that was fun, sexy, and not a lot of drama. Charity has a great ability to give us books that aren’t loaded down with a lot of extra stuff we don’t need. Her books and writing skill gets better with every book I read by her. She has a fan for life!! I will say that this book was slightly predictable, but she was still able to keep me interested all the way through and she even through in a little shocker that I wasn’t expecting. I like when an author can keep me on my toes 😉

In this story we meet Nautica and Bracken. Bracken is Nautica’s brother Simon’s BFF. Nautica has been in love with Bracken for as long as she can remember and thinks that he doesn’t feel the same way. That is until one night Nautica is left by her room mate at a bar and Bracken sees her. Bracken has always looked out for Nautica, but has taken it more seriously now that she is in college and Simon in away in the Army. Bracken is not happy with her being in a bar and makes her hang out with him and his friends. For certain reasons Nautica is unable to go back to her dorm room, so Bracken invites her to stay at his house. So after some drinks and flirting, some lines are crossed. Will Bracken finally admit his feelings for Nautica? What happens when Simon finds out? Well to get the answers to these and other questions, you will need to read the book!!

Bad For You is a stand-alone story, that is told in Dual POV and has a happy ending. The storyline is fun and sexy with a little bit of drama to keep you turning the page. The characters are easy to relate to and aren’t struggling with a lot of extra baggage. That’s probably the thing I liked the most….these characters weren’t broken like we see in a lot of New Adult books these days. Yes there were family issues and yes Bracken was your typical playboy, but this story didn’t dwell on those facts. It just felt different to me…hard to explain without spoiling things for the readers.

So if you are a fan of a Forbidden, Friends to Lovers type story than this is a book you should give a try. I have read all of Charity’s books and I would not hesitate at all recommending any of them…..they are all fantastic reads!!!! I look forward to what comes next from Charity Ferrell.
