Bad For You (Sea Breeze #7) by Abbi Glines
“You don’t just fit into my world, Blythe. You are my world.”
I love stories with a damaged heroine! I know that probably makes me really messed up but who cares?!
Bad For You is about rock star Krit, who was introduced in the previous book. After Jess broke his heart, he decided he was no good in relationships and vowed not to have another one. But when his new shy, innocent neighbor moves downstairs he’s fascinated.
Blythe moved to Sea Breeze with a plan for a new life. The people who raised her hadn’t shown any interest or love in her, and she’s eager to move on with her life and become a writer. Sea Breeze is the perfect opportunity, if only her neighbors would stop throwing loud parties until the early morning.
“I was completely obsessed with her. Addicted wasn’t a strong enough word. She had surpassed my addictive tendencies, and I was full-blown obsessed.”
I liked this one a lot more than the last book, because it was alot less cheesy to me. Plus the characters were friends first and actually got to know one another before falling for each other. There was attraction between them at first, but not insta-love, which is much better. Plus, Ms. Glines brought good angst again, that’s what keeps me reading!
“For what it’s worth, I don’t think you’re fucked up. I think you’re perfect.”
Blythe I loved as a heroine because after everything she went through growing up, she decided she wanted more out of her life, and she went for it. No complaining, only hesitance in social scenarios where she was uncomfortable.
“I’m not sharing. You’re mine. No one will touch you but me.”
And Krit was so sweet, I was glad he got his own book.
This would have been a 4 star rating instead of 3.5, if it hadn’t been for that bit of racism at the end at the 93% point. YES, it was racist to have the only black character talk that way and say those stereotypical things. I mean, come on! I felt it was incredibly unnecessary and not entirely relevant to the story.
