Nothing good comes after the third date.

See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.


Confession: When I started Bad Penny I did not think I was going to like it. And I will admit, it was mostly because I thought I was not going to like Penny. It might have been due to the fact that right from the start we see her IDGAF, brash and brazen (and very bawdy) personality, and it was not what I was expecting. However, this is what made her so unique and ended up making her and this story an unforgettable one!

After getting used to Penny’s extremely risqué attitude (and then loving everything about it) I could not put this book down! It’s been taking me longer than usual to finish a book (I’m looking and you Grey’s) but I breezed through this one in two days. It sucked me in and after cracking me up and turning up the temperature, it left me thoroughly entertained and satisfied.

Penny and Bodie’s relationship during the novel was scorching hot, funny, and basically what I imagine to be everyone’s #goals! Their story managed to be both adorable and sexy AF, which was something I greatly appreciated, and the drama/angst that was added to the pot made the whole thing even better.

Staci Hart has written one BAD B that I totally wish I could be friends with IRL…or one that I just wish I could be! I’ll take either option please!!! 😉

Anyways, make sure to snatch this one up, along with every Staci Hart novel before it! They’re worth it. <3

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
