Bad Idea: Some mistakes are worth making.
Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling supersquare, straitlaced superheroes, hiding from his fans, and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams. Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnership.
Against their better judgment, they fall victim to chemistry, and what starts as infatuation quickly grows tender and terrifying. With Silas’s help, Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan: sketching out Scratch, a “very graphic novel” that will either make his name or wreck his career. But even a smash hit can’t save their world if Trip retreats into his mild-mannered rut, leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can’t escape.
What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it safe?

Doesn't advance as fast as most romances. I had a few pr...
Comic books, we all read them when we were kids and some of us still read them. We watch the movies, we praise for the heroes and heroines. We revile the villains. We get a chance to escape our everyday humdrum lives. But what about the people who write them? Bad Idea is the story of one of those pe...
2.5 starsI wanted to like this book. I tried really hard to love it even. No dice. It's so very very long. There's easily 30% of the story that's just padding and word fluff. I spent a good bit of the book drowning in the words and general confusion. Admittedly, some of my confusion came from not be...
