New Release ~ #Review ~ Badd Ass by Jasinda Wilder






I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.

The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him. And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me. Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars. And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.






Five deliciously wicked stars!
I couldn’t wait to dive into another Badd brother’s story and this one was funny, raunchy, sexy and sweet! In other words, exactly what I was hoping for!
There are EIGHT brothers – be still my achy heart - and they are all gorgeous, talented and completely different from one another. If Bast hadn’t stolen my heart in the first instalment of this series Zane would surely have it. And, honestly, I think they both have it… Zane is a book boyfriend that you wish you could make real by just a wiggle of your nose. He is handsome and funny, honest and sexy. Sexy, like he invented the word. He is all man with a Navy SEAL’s heart and soul and the *ahem* equipment to back up every word he says…
And if I know the men in this series are all that and a bag of chips, well, the women are right next to them! Mara is both hilarious and sweet as she and Zane find themselves entwined in a courtship dance that should be listed under the dictionary listing for hot… They are both going to challenge each other on what they really want out of life… and love…
“I don’t do relationships…”
H.O.T. I have to keep saying it because from the first pages this story was all about the intense attraction that these two lovers had for each other. One night stand or forever was to be determined and that’s when the emotions kicked in. This story made me laugh and snicker in turn as the sexy banter between the main characters was only rivaled by the sassy and sultry chat between Mara and her bestie Claire. All the brothers have to get into the act and the only complaint would be, there needs to be more of that!
With uncertainty as the theme, Zane and Mara navigated the mine field of their relationship and their baggage with the just right balance of enthusiasm and dread. And along with them were family and friends and this reader quietly cheering in her kindle corner…
It was romantic. It was funny. It was all kinds of raunchy sexy. With all the feels I yearned for as the cherry on top, Mara and Zane’s story was as well-rounded as any romantic meal could be. This series has me addicted and I’m nowhere near full!
Made me snicker:
“… acres of lovely man muscle, and his California Redwood of a…”
“…it’s pretty, Claire. Like…I just want to touch it and hold it and look at it and---
And name him George?”

Five+++ stars
