Meg's Review:

As a huge fan of the Up In The Air series I feel terribly for waiting so long to read this WONDERFUL novel. After finishing this one I ran out and bought the next in the series. I made the other mistake of starting it at 9 at night and ended up reading all night. It is that good. Danika is the type of character that you instantly fall in love with. She is such a strong character with the personality to match it. Even with a life that hasn't been easy, she faces it all head on.

"I knew trouble when I saw it, it being a very old friend of mine. Trouble for me was this nasty little self-destructive streak that I'd never quite been able to shake."

BadThings Tristan. He melted my heart. There were some parts I wanted to just smack his stupid self, but he kept that spot in my heart.


Because I like you too much to sleep with you"

This novel is the type that doesn't have that Out of There Never Going To Happen feel. It feels like an everyday couple that just falls in love. It happens in a way that draws you in and just makes you fall in love with it. It so wonderful written that it can appeal to a multitude of readers. The Alpha loving, the NA, the Billionaire, the Rockstar. It really it a great overall read for everyone. I highly recommend grabbing it and settling down with a comfy blanket and some tissues. Your going to need them.


Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.

One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?

For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

Bad Things is about Tristan and Danika, and their train wreck of a love story. This series can be read as a standalone, or with the Up in the Air series.

Bad Things is a full length novel, at roughly 105,000 words.
This book is intended for ages 18 and up.
