A great and emotionally charged book by a very talented author. R.K. Lilley does not disappoint and Bad Things is anything but! It’s a great read even if you don’t know about Tristka (yes, that’s my name for Tristan and Danika) from the Up in the Air series. But it’s even better for us that do.
The book starts out fun, sexy and charming with two characters that are difficult not to love.
Tristan has dimples people! Need I say more? Yes? Ok, he is a sex on a stick rocker, tattoos included. He cooks and bakes, is seriously competitive and is oh so kind and considerate.
Danika is a saucy, sarcastic knock out, who’s not afraid to dish out shit when needed but totally in control of herself unless she’s on a dance floor.
Inevitably the story turns to passion but not before it gives us a sweet, heartwarming feeling. Because while fighting to not give into their obvious attraction, Tristan and Danika find they are their perfect match.
“Don’t kiss me,” I told him, my voice a breathless rasp.
“Mean it,” he said, crowding me into the cornor of the pool. He tilted my chin up with his finger.
“I can’t,” I gasped.
R.K. Also does a wonderful job at giving us a bittersweet ending that leaves us wanting more.
I look forward to continuing Tristka’s love affair, wanting answers to big and small questions, hoping achingly for a happily ever after and let’s not forget, to read more of great supporting characters like James and Frankie.
