An All-New Dark Mafia Romance from LP Lovell and Stevie J. Cole
True power is never held by good men, only the most perfect of villains. And she and I are both villains…
I stole her, and she’s so very angry. The cartel princess doesn’t like being a pretty little pawn. She fights me when she should fear me. But oh, how her defiance excites me.
She would kill me if she could, and I’d ruin her if I had an ounce less control. What a twisted game we play with sweet threats and cruel promises. I crave her madness in the most depraved ways because I know she’ll be so beautiful when she bleeds.
A queen who could set the world on fire and a king who would call it rain. Two very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together.
Some love stories have no heroes.

Another blood thirsty from the delectable duo that is Stevie J Cole and LP Lovell. Oh, how they craft such tales of madness and mayhem that satisfies the dark readers palette. This pair offer and exceed expectations every time they come together. If you’ve read and been following Jude and Tor through Wrong, Wire and War (The Wrath Trilogy) then you’ll know exactly who Ronan Cole and Camilla Estrada is and you’ll have been waiting with baited breath for their story. Bad does not disappoint.
Ronan Cole…he’s no bookie. For me, he didn’t light a candle to the likes of Jude Pearson but I think that lies in the fact that the ‘Russian’ is more controlled, more calculated. Isn’t fuelled by that raw passion we all know called love. There’s a restraint in his actions, for the most part, and I felt a little disconnect with him. Camilla Estrada (Gabe’s sister) is the epitome of strength. What she brings to Ronan Cole’s table confuses him, but he never takes his eye off the goal – she’s a pawn to use and he cleverly figured her role out at the beginning, which made her a commodity he wanted to bend to his will. And she does…but with her own agenda.
This book is not for the squeamish, which is really a given if you know these author’s work. You can expect to read brutal scenes of violence in all their gory details, I’d be disappointed if they hadn’t written it that way in all honesty.
A gripping read, only let down by the fact that I didn’t feel the desperate intensity of previous books and thus fell flat in places for me. Was I looking for a man to fall in love with a woman and chaos to ensue? No, but I expected a softening so when I reached the end I was surprised. Loved the cliffhanger – it’s a doozy – and suited the conclusion for now. I do wait eagerly for the next instalment.
As always, these authors write seamlessly together. You can’t tell who is writing what part, even when you know how they write together. To me that is something special, these authors connect in such a fantastic way.
So, a four-star review for me. I hate comparing books to previous ones, but it can’t be helped with Bad because the story is essentially a continuation. Give me some intensity and passion instead of control and plans and you’ll hook me into five stars for book two. Highly recommended if you like your dark reads. These women rock the genre!
