Review Tour : BAD FOR YOU by J. Daniels

January 23, 2018


"If you're a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book." -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word

He didn't want to be bad. He just didn't have a choice...
Shayla Perkins isn't the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean "Stitch" Molina. So when he gives her the world's biggest rejection, that's it--she's done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn't mean he's interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he's paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected--especially from a man like Sean. He's tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want to let each other go?

"The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!" --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word



I AM IN LOVE! SO DESPERATELY IN LOVE! Bad For You put me into an emotional wringer. It broke me but healed and pieced me back together beautifully. Such a beautiful story that did not just stir my emotions but pulled my heart strings one by one.

It's no secret that I am over the moon when it comes to J. Daniels' books, so devoured I did with Bad For You. Man, I am enamored. This story in itself was pieced together magically as it resonated me from deep within.  It owned me and it's just so hard to let go. The characters did it for me as much as the storyline. To quote my blog sister,  "Just saying these characters names alone feel like I'm giving away something that isn't mine to give away."- and really, this line is saying something deep about them and I couldn't agree more.

Sean and Shayla's journey surprised me and it was nothing I ever expected. First few pages in and I am in love with them already. Sean was an enigma to me. He did not just made me curious about him, he made me fall in love with him instantly. His broody, grumpy and quite nature made me love him even more. There's something in him that draws me and with a past that shattered my heart, and a character perfectly crafted together flaws and all, this man just became my newest book boyfriend. Gah! I am so in love with him. Shayla was no different either as I have instant connection with her too. Her compassion and selfless love made her so strong. I adore this woman for fighting what she believe is right. I love her will to make it her mission to help Sean realize his worth. To make him feel loved and for being so patient and passionate for him. And the best thing? I love her big heart. 

Together, these two created something fierce and hell if it wasn't the best thing ever.It made my heart jump with glee. I was cheering for them and then rooting for them even more.  But don't get me wrong, Bad For You might be an emotional story but make no mistake as you will not just be crying tears of sadness. This book got loads and loads of hilarious moments that tears just leaked in your eye with too much laughter. Just imagine Shayla's sass, stubborness and bossiness to Sean's quite and broody nature. Gahd!! This is total opposites attract in the making then BAM! Perfect chemistry. And what comes off from two sould that fitted perfectly? Hot sizzling moments, buckets of sex and a Heart! Really, I couldn't ask for more.

Will I recommend this book? Hell Yes! Bad For You is a must read. It's equal parts humor, heat and heart. It's brilliantly executed and awesomely delivered. Kudos J.Daniels! I enjoyed my journey with Sean and Shayla.

I wasn’t expecting this at all! Talk about gut wrenching and being heart broken at the same time, and here I thought I was getting a light read!! How freakin wrong I was. This author certainly knows how to shake things up, I’ll tell you that much. I knew two things when I started this book and that was the fact that this was one of my most highly anticipated reads of 2018 and I’ve enjoyed this Author's writing in the past. That was all I needed to have and quite frankly, I was a happy girl. But everything changed for me the moment I read the prologue. One prologue put the two things I only had going for this book to shame. One prologue, made me sat up straighter in my chair and not only took notice, but caught and held my undivided attention. One prologue, made me whispered “this is going to be good". 

Shay is the kind of girl that everyone wants to be around. She’s smart, funny, loving, and there’s a sassiness to her that you just can’t help but love. Being a waitress at “Whitecaps", you get to interact with a lot of people and the most consistent one is the head cook. Who wouldn’t want to have a one sided conversation everyday with a hot broody guy that looks like he’s pissed off everyday? . Earning the nickname Stitch, Shay was determined to be his friend and maybe in time, something more. That is until one moment changes their course .

“We were just feeling. Feeling and letting it all happen. It was the most beautiful chaotic I’d ever experienced. 

Sean knows what it means to have a hard life because he's been through it. But that’s all in the past and his main focus now is just having a full time job and a place he can call his own. Anything more than that, is simply a distraction and a risk he's not willing to make. Having a girl like Shay in his life is not something that Sean wants but little does he know, it’s something that he needs. When an event draws them together and makes them a fixture in each other’s lives, there was no stopping their inevitable future. But will they be able to survive a past that is not only scarred and battered, but also damaging? 

I've said this a few times before but trust me on this one when I truly say, I really don't want to go into a lot of details with this book. Just saying these characters names alone feel like I’m giving away something that isn’t mine to give away. I just want everyone to feel this story, I want them to love it, go through it, and just experience it freely. Those were the feelings that I got and I can’t even describe to you the rollercoaster of emotions that I was put on!! I only had one issue with this but aside from that, I LOVED it! My poor heart felt BROKEN and absolutely SHATTERED at times and I kept thinking to myself, there’s no way that this feeling can get any worse! You’re probably wondering, well did it? Well…… You’ll just have to read this one and find out for yourselves.
