Review: My Week with the Bad Boy by Kennedy Fox


Steamy love stories you can read in one sitting! After everyone goes to bed for the night, snuggle up with a Kennedy Fox Bedtime Read! These are full-length standalone novels that are filled with humor, insta-lust, blistering heat, and are faster-paced, but still have everything you love about a Kennedy Fox book! 

Never trust a man who answers the front door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.

That should’ve been my first sign.

I write about guys just like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic fuckboy. 

And I want nothing to do with that.

Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges all my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you. 

One week is all it took. One week to realize that not everything is as it seems.

One week with the bad boy, and I wanted more.

**This is a complete STANDALONE novel—filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content. Previously published under Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish.**

5 stars

Whew! It is just a little bit hot in this room among other places, holy nuggets comrades. If you have been able to tear your eyes away from that delicious cover, I know it is beaver drool-worthy you really just want to lick it (I may have…), but seriously don’t you want to know why I gave it a 5 STARS? 

From the beginning to end, I adored Vada. She is completely relatable person. I will admit probably the key favorite attribute about Vada’s story-line is that she is vacationing writer looking to finish her book. It is like Cumberland and Parish wrote a humorous tale of how romance authors might get their inspiration. Probably not, or perhaps – I really don’t know, just really fun character backbone that was a nice imagery. Not only is Vada just all around believable character you have Ethan, appearing as a crude sense of humor southern man who happens to be a really nice guy. It is always the bad boys, asshole complex type of men who have a closet sweetie pie just pining to snuggle. Obviously because this is an insta-love type connection romance, which lets be real majority romance is, this was played absolutely beautifully. The way the characters meet starts everything off in the right direction with a hilariously perverted undertone which ultimately dwindles down to both characters carrying the weight of their personally emotional baggage that they need to work to overcome. 

This is probably the biggest compliment I can give this book in the shortest description possible: It is 230 pages jammed of laughter, steamy sex, emotional roller-coasters, struggles – the characters had a dynamic, their depth was beyond evolved within a short amount of read time and surprisingly not one-dimensional persona on either of the main characters. This is something extremely rare to find in romance novels of this structure. 

Ultimately this was beyond just an amazing read. It was hilarious, with witty and crude banter, deliciously hot in all the right moments with a dash of sweet, emotional feels in the midst of the passionate monkey sex. The sex scenes were slide off your chair, beaver drool worthy, the connection of the romance was point on with chemistry dynamic. Once I picked this up I could not put it down but I wouldn’t expect anything less than perfection from Kennedy Fox considering my obsession with her Checkmate series. 

I highly recommend this! Ethan is beyond the most sexiest man created for my hot wet dreams. Crude sense of humor, snide remarks, a mouth more useful than snippy banter and piercings in many places…. cough… other than his ears. He is my bad boy to spend a week with, please – where do I sign up? but seriously, just a great story, fun premise, amazingly fun characters – LOVED this book. 

You should get it. You will probably thank me later so I will just say this: You are welcome.
