REVIEW - Bad - LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

AUTHOR - LP Lovell & 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 from her precious cartel, and now she's my pretty little pawn. She should fear me, but she doesn't. I'll have to teach her… 

I put a gun to her head and she holds a knife to my throat. Round and round we go, inviting the sickness that consumes us both. We play our twisted game with sweet threats and cruel promises, neither backing down. I crave her madness in the most depraved ways. 

Only a woman as ruthless as Camilla could ever make me weak, and she'd love to watch me crumble. 

Two very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together. 

Some love stories have no heroes.

Jennifer's Review:

Bad is a very, very, very dark read. This book is not for the faint hearted. There is a bit of mystery in this book and a whole lot of violence. If you can't handle violence and blood (think game of thrones) then skip this book. If you are brave, then give it a try. You will be surprised.

I was excited to read this book because I love bratva books. I like that this book crossed the seas and wasn't set in the US. I also liked how the Mexican cartel had a big role in this book. I felt the plot was complex, but written in a way that was easy to follow.

Ronan is ruthless. Like seriously ruthless. I feel he is the most realistic character I've read in this genre. I liked being able to read his inner ramblings. Camilla is the perfect opponent for Ronan. Where he is calm, she is wild and reckless. These characters complimented each other well.

Holy heat. The scenes between these two burned off the pages. Even though some of the scenes weren't necessarily my thing, I got caught up in the story and found myself fanning myself. There is a lot of hate between these characters, which I believe hate breeds more passion than love when strong attraction is involved. 

The writing style of this book is off the chain. The pace is exactly what I expect, steady. I love how the author had no fear when writing the violence in this book. At times I feel mob books are dulled down, but this one shows what I truly believe is true of the bratva.

In conclusion, I wasn't sure as I was reading this book how I felt. Once I got to the end I wanted more though. I have to know what happens next. I would only recommend this book to friends who can handle violence and gore.

Plot: 5/5
