As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.
Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.
It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?
What’s it About? Falling for the Bad Girl sounded too delicious to pass up. So the set up is that jewel thief Regan Malloy has just been released from prison and wants to start her life over on a good note except that detective Nathan Carter has gone from starring in her fantasies to rocking her world the first night she’s free. He’s the detective that sent her to prison in the first place and while Regan should hate him, she can’t. Nate should stay away from her because technically they’re enemies right?
Did you like him? Yes. He can arrest me anytime
Why? Nate spent a good amount of time feeling like he was in the wrong for being attracted to Regan and to me that made him much more interesting. He was a good guy who had moments of “Really dude? You’re going to go there?” Nate wasn’t an over the top alpha male with a gun and cuffs, he was charismatic, sensible (Most of the time), and had a hidden sense of humor I enjoyed. I developed a crush on him myself so yeah, cuff me please!!!
Did you like her? Yes.
Why? I was curious to see how Nina Croft would make Regan seem like a viable “heroine” when she literally just got out of prison for stealing diamonds. From the first scene Regan was lively, engaging, and oh so ready to take on the world just so she could have a chance to stand on her own two feet the legal way. I really loved her will to survive and build a new life for herself all while maintaining her loyalty to her friends and her criminally active family. It wasn’t easy and while that conflict wasn’t totally solved by the end of the book, Regan made it seem like she was well on her way to finding a healthy compromise.
How convincing were the main characters as a couple? Falling for the Bad Girl was easily one of the hottest Brazen books I’ve read in a while! The chemistry between Nate and Regan started “off page” way before the book actually starts but it picks up in an explosive way on the day Regan gets out of prison. Croft made it seem so natural for these two to burn up the sheets with one another so quickly that it took me awhile to realize Nate and Regan were beginning to bond in a more permanent way. They were such a good match and I loved them together.
