Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 28, 2018
I haven’t always been this bad…
Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties
and bent at the knees rather than the waist.
Pomp and circumstance changed all that.
Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I
should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though.
I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that
dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.
I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his
hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.
He wants to keep me close.
I should push him away.
He says he can help me.
I’m not so sure.
For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
What if he’s wrong?
Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
Everyone knows it’s always the other way.

Well, Kim Karr crushed this one!!!! 5 Stars all the way for me! It had MAJOR steam, mystery, beautiful settings, and great characters. All of those elements combined with the fact that it was also very well-written made this a PERFECT read. Karr had me riveted from the very first scene…wow!!!
Poor Sadie has lived with secrets all her life, and she has spent her adulthood moving forward and trying to make a good life for herself. Now, her past is coming back to haunt her, so she does what she always does, she runs. However, this time she has a very angry and sexy man chasing her. He was supposed to be an easy mark, even if she detested stealing from others, but he turned out to be more complicated that she ever anticipated.
Jaxson was on his way to paradise for the job of a lifetime when he met a beautiful woman by the name of “Sarah” in an airport bar. He recently lost his fiancée to another man, and he has been celibate, swearing off women to concentrate on himself. “Sarah” is a temptation he can’t resist. After she accepts a drink and his proposition of “no strings” sex, he is more than delighted. Too bad the next morning, reality will set in when he wakes up to realize “Sarah” isn’t who she says she is, and she has run off with his money and livelihood. Luck is on his side when he finds a clue she left behind, and he vows to make her pay.
The attraction between these two is electrifying. They are “two lost souls, broken, damaged, and incomplete” yet there are “electric sparks, dangerous chemistry, and lust.” All those complicated emotions drew me into their story.
Sadie has made some wrong choices which leads to her even making worse decisions, but they do come from a good place in her heart. She’s trying to make things better. Jaxson looks like the all-American man, but he also exudes “sin, power, and seduction” with a completely naughty side. Sadie seems to bring that out in him. Yet, he also is a nice guy even though he tries to hide it since being the nice guy got him nothing but a broken heart. As much as Sadie brings out that naughty side, she brings out the good guy too. Once he knows her story, he will do anything he can to help her. But, he never counted on falling so hard for her.
In addition to this being a steamy romance, it also had elements of mystery and suspense. I certainly wasn’t expecting the twists and turns that occurred. Plus, the locations on the tropical islands made me feel like I was there in paradise as well.
I love the way Kim Karr writes. It is so much more than just a book; it’s a story she tells. Her use of literary devices and her descriptive writing is what sets her apart from some other writers in the same genre. She adds little things that make the story bigger. For instance, she added the 12 Steps that Sadie learned in her Al-Anon meetings and weaved them seamlessly into the book. My most favorite part of the book was the last two sentences in the epilogue, talk about making my heart melt!!!! It was perfect!!!!
