BIG BADD WOLF
by Jasinda Wilder is LIVE
Lucian Badd saved my life. He jumped into the freezing water of the Ketchikan harbor after I fell in. He took me to his room, stripped my wet clothes off, and wrapped me in a warm blanket.
That should have been it. I should have hit the road as soon as I could, because I’m a vagabond, a drifter. A homeless orphan with no family and no future except what I create for myself. Which is why getting tangled up with a guy—no matter how tall, dark, quiet, and sexy he may be—is a really terrible idea.
Yet…I kissed him anyway. And that one kiss? It set my world on fire, turned everything upside down.
I know I shouldn’t get involved with him. I tell myself I won’t. Yet, I still get pulled in by him and his seven brothers and their wives and girlfriends—by the concept of family, something I haven’t had in a very, very long time. Something I never thought I’d have again.
Every moment I spend with Lucian turns my present into perfect, and puts my future at risk.

As the second youngest Badd brother, I’ve lived my entire life in the long, broad shadows cast by my older brothers—the burly, bad boy bartender, the Navy SEAL, the trick pilot, the athlete, and the rock star twins. Even my younger brother, Xavier, finds a way to outshine everyone in the room with his unassuming charisma and dizzying intellect. More and more lately, I’ve been asking myself where I fit in.
And then Joss Mackenzie fell into the Inside Passage in the middle of a freak snowstorm, and in so doing, fell into my life. I saved her from the icy water, but can I can I save myself from falling for a girl I know is only going to end up doing the one thing she does best—leave?
It’s evident from the first kiss what the answer is—there’s no saving myself, not from the magnetic appeal of her wild, untamable spirit, or the exotic allure of her caramel skin and long dreadlocks and golden-brown eyes and perfect body. I’m helpless against this attraction.
But as I seek to find myself and my place among my larger-than-life brothers, will I lose my heart to the exotic beauty with walls a mile high and a tragic past?
Do you ever read a book and think... “Wow, these characters were made for me?” It felt like Jasinda Wilder reaches into my heart and pulled out the perfect characters to relate to me at this time. Surprisingly, I really connected with Lucian. I have a large family too. We’re wild and loud; they’re all so outgoing and crazy... did I mention crazy? Lucian has always felt different, the off man out in his family. He’s seriously an introvert living in and extroverts world, queue my panic attacks! Lol
Lucian and Joss are just the baddest of the Badd’s. The bookworm in me swooned at all the book love in this book. I loved Joss, hard, but there were sometimes I wanted to shake some sense into that woman! Once we get clues into her past, it’s a bit more understandable and it all made me just adore her more!!! So once Joss fell into Lucian’s life, everything is set off-kilter. I wasn’t little worried the Wilder was going to give us insta-love way too fast and way too hard. I’m not sure what I was thinking, nobody ever tells a story more real than Wilder does. So yeah, we might have this instantaneous, highly-flammable chemistry right off the bat, Jasinda slows it down to a simmer. She builds on this relationship and what she gives us is what has to be my absolute favorite Badd man (yeah, I know, we still have one to go). To date, this book is the Baddest one and I mean that in the best way possible!!
Wilder’s writing is completely flawless. The storyline and plot were so flawless that I finished this within 24 hours. Once you start on Lucian’s story, you’ll be addicted, consumed!! There were so many quotes that were purely golden. One of the best things about this Badd series is the sense of family, of love, of being accepted for who you are. It totally helps that we get to check in on couples from previous books.
I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an unbiased opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
