Bad Penny by Staci Hart

Add to Goodreads


Staci has done it again. Bad Penny was dirty and wonderful. I LOVED how she had no filter and was hold-no-bars on what she wants. Penny is vivacious and force to be recked with. Throwing Bodie into the mix only brought more emotions out in a girl who has vowed to keep hers to the things that matter. Getting laid and staying single. Well, watching THAT plan unfold once Bodie was throw into the mix was super fun. I felt like if I wanted fanning myself with my reader, I was yelling at these two to just BE HAPPY. This was a wild ride with sensual scenes that could make anyone blush. Staci threw all she has into this novel with these scenes and it showed. This was a fun novel about falling in love and having no qualms about doing it your way. A story full of some of the dirtiest talk I have read in a while, as well as more corny jokes than I thought possible. I could read this book twice over, it was that fun. Girl power ladies. Be yourself and don't let anyone tell you there is something wrong with that. Also, I now was lavender hair. I need to make that happen.


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.
