Carolina Bad Boys #2 follows Nicky Love, paranormal romance writer who was “outed” as straight in the first book Stone, at Your Service. I just couldn’t get into this one as much as Stone. It was in first person POV as told by Nick, and it didn’t quite seem to be as entertaining as the first one. I’ve read this troupe before, the straight laced guy falls for the tattooed bad girl, and I have read better. The one thing that sets this aside from the others is that he is a male romance writer heavy into the social media scene. I didn’t hate it; I just couldn’t get into it.
Catarina Steele has a cool personality, and as it is in Nick’s first person you slowly discover why. Catarina has had a difficult past and keeps everyone at a distance but Nick and his sexy well everything worms his way into her heart giving her the hope that she could be herself. Her slow acceptance of letting him into her life is amusing seeing how determined he is to get there, but when he finds out everything he just may be stupid enough to lose her completely by pushing her away. The gentle manipulations from the people they love are amusing and probably my favorite part.
