Nothing good comes after the third date. 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’ll get 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 or that he 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.
I believe Bad Penny is the third book by Staci Hart that I have read and I am really loving her books. Bad Penny was hilarious, sexy, sweet it was just everything I was needing when I read it. I was looking at some of the reviews others have written, which is something I do occasionally just to see if people loved it as much as me or reacted the same and I am seeing that spitting their wine or other beverage of choice while reading was a common occurrence. Thank god for cases or my kindle would be toast after how many times I burst out laughing.
I can’t find one single thing about Bad Penny that I didn’t just absolutely love! The characters are not only refreshing but hilarious, and ones that you can’t help but just laugh out loud with and love. Penny and Bodie (side note I love that name okay moving on) are characters that you feel a special bond with.
I won’t spoil it for anyone but this is one of the must read books of the year. Bad Penny is one book I can scream and say that everyone needs to read this one or have it on your TBR shelves. Staci Hart, I don’t know if it means anything to you but you have a fan for life with this book whore, I love a lot of authors but only the special ones hold a special place in my heart and you are one of those.
