✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Bad for You by Charity Ferrell

 

Bad for You
By: Charity Ferrell
Narrated by: Lacey Laurel & Christian Stark

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author comes this riveting brother's best friend romance.

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. 

And 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 of me, and I can’t say no. 

Rules are set: No one can find out. 

It can’t lead anywhere. 

But rules were always meant to be broken. 

And that’s exactly what we are doing. 

Breaking them all. Something bad is bound to happen.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bad for You by Charity Ferrell is a second-chance romance, and if there were ever a story about two people who couldn't get out of their own way, this is it. Bracken and Nautica (great names!) are attracted to each other from the start, but Nautica's brother poses a problem. Of course, they lose the fight with their mutual attraction - I mean, was there ever any doubt?
The angst in this one relies pretty heavily on misunderstanding and miscommunication. Honestly, I'm not really a fan of either in romance, but it is what it is. I can't say that I was a big fan of the time that passes either, but it works for this couple and their storyline. Bracken's relationship with his dad broke my heart, and while I'm sure none of us like those particular circumstances, they happen IRL, and I feel like it brought an air of reality to the story. I realize I'm being pretty vague, but I don't want to give everything away.
I listened to this one, and both Lacey Laurel and Christian Stark were new to me. Each of them gives a good performance. Whether it was the strong chemistry or the angst, they bring out the emotion of the story. I was already a Charity Ferrell fan, and that hasn't changed. Now, I'm also a fan of Lacey Laurel and Christian Stark, and I will be looking for their names when I'm scrolling through audiobooks.
