Make Mine a Bad Boy by Katie Lane – A Review
As soon as I finished book #1 in this series (Going Cowboy Crazy), I went immediately to my stash of books from the 2011 RWA National Conference to find book #2.
Hope Scroggs–the town of Bramble sweetheart, past homecoming queen, head high school cheerleader, aspiring Hollywood actress waiting to be discovered–comes home to Bramble shocked to find the town planning her wedding to high school sweetheart, Slate Calhoun, a man she hasn’t seen in five years, nor talked to in the past year. However, she needs the stability he can provide so she jumps at the wedding idea. Unfortunately, SHE isn’t the woman he’s marrying…it’s her twin sister, Faith Aldridge, a woman Hope didn’t even know exists until now! Hope is shocked, angry, and embarrassed. Not only was she NOT a Hollywood success, her back-up plan (marry the high school boyfriend) has been shot to pieces by a woman who looks exactly like Hope.
Roaring into Hope’s life is bad boy Colt Lomax, a motorcycle bum who has trouble tattooed all over his body…a body that Hope can’t seem to resist, not now and not in the past.
One of the most interesting aspects of this story was Hope’s character arc, from angry woman to a woman who finally admits what (and who) she wants.
This story has some fun romantic twists and turns as Hope finds her way to the real love of her life. Colt’s charm (and sex appeal) oozes on very page.
The only complaint I have is that the cover does not begin to reflect the view I had of Colt in my mind. He was MUCH sexier, more muscular, and more tattooed that the model on the cover!
Nice job, Ms. Lane.
A fun read for the contemporary romance lover.
