Like the most potent of perfumes or the most decadent of desserts, I'm hooked. There's something about a bad boy and Carson wears that surname like a badge of honor or a weapon of choice. His electric eyes and his dark rebel persona draw women in like a moth to a flame. The beauty of Carson is that Ms. Foster dreamed up a puzzle in need of solving. The seducer becomes the prey. Mr. Bad is about to face his toughest challenge yet. And her name is Tawny Bishop. They have a past that started with friendship and ended in seduction. Now the student has become the teacher and the lesson plans have changed. The conundrum of Carson is that he exudes complicated but he's really a simple boy at heart. Carson and Tawny blend sensitive and sensual into a brew that flows smoother than the softest silk.
Oh, my! Oh my! I need me some more Dylan Bad. That man is absolute perfection. Not only is he hot, sexy and bad he is compassionate, passionate and understanding. Melissa Foster sure knows how to create the perfect hero.
Dylan is the type of guy who loves when he can help a woman who he feels is in need of being rescued. That’s the type of woman he is attracted to, so you can imagine his surprise when he finds himself drawn to Tiffany Winters. She was the furthest thing from someone who needed to be rescued. She is the type of woman that some men may find intimidating. She is strong, independent, driven and a total ball buster. She has no interest in a long-term relationship, but she has nothing against the occasional hook-ups when time permits. Her main focus was on building her career as a well sought after sports agent. She likes to be in control both in the boardroom and the bedroom. When she laid eyes on Dylan Bad, she only had one goal on her mind and that was to have a night of unbridled passion. What she never counted on was that night would leave her wanting more, which tested her need to always be in control.
Initially, she was not a likable character, but as the story progressed, I saw a side of her that she never revealed to the outside world. To them, she was considered an ice princess, but it took Dylan to show that there was indeed a softer side to her. I liked that he accepted her for who she was. He never tried to change her, but instead showed her that there was more to life than work. He helped her to see that sometimes it’s good to let loose and enjoy what life had to offer.
This story is a perfect demonstration of how issues from our past help shape our actions in the present which can either have a positive or negative effect. It was good to see Dylan and Tiffany moving pass the pain from their past and in doing so, was able to cease the opportunities that their new found relationship had to offer. The story was well written and the characters were well developed. There were some steamy scenes and a few laugh out loud moments. There was one particular scene that had me in stitches. In spite of the humour of the situation, it made me realise how much Tiffany had grown since she met Dylan.
Verdict This was an enjoyable story of unconditional love. Melissa Foster has proven once again why she is on my list of must read authors. She knows how to create a story that is humorous, sweet, emotional, and has enough steam to cause spontaneous combustion. I enjoyed every moment of Dylan and Tiffany’s story and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
"Relationships don’t work because people change. They work because two people want to be together, and one’s strengths complements the other’s weaknesses. I like who you are. It’s pretty awesome not needing to fix or save you, and just being able to enjoy you. But soon all this great sex and intrigue will hit a wall. To go further, we have to get to know each other on a deeper level. If you want that, if you want me, you have to let me in.”
Dylan's story in the Bad Boys After Dark series is a great addition to the family's story. Dylan's story picks up right where Mick's story leaves off.
Ever since I read Mick's story, I've wanted to know how Dylan and Tiffany's would play out. I am very pleased with the outcome.
Tiffany Winters is a work-alcoholic and very independent woman. She does a wonderful job of achieving what she sets out for with her career. With all her success, she lets life pass her by. Tiffany doesn't seem like she takes much time to enjoy life, her success, and her family.
Dylan is the perfect boyfriend for Tiffany. He's patient, kind-hearted, and loyal. Dylan reads Tiffany well and is an excellent communicator. How could someone not fall for Dylan?
I enjoyed seeing how the characters grow and how their relationship helps them both. This story made me laugh and cry with what Tiffany and Dylan have had to go through during their lives.
I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
