Tessa O’Connell is a girl as ordinary as they come-or so she thinks. Her aim for senior year is to keep her head down yet somehow manage to convince her childhood love Jay Stone to love her back. What she isn’t prepared for is for Jay’s brother, Cole to return to town and change the life she’s always been seemingly content to live. Tall, gorgeous as all hell and a bad boy with ocean blue eyes and the perfect edge of adorability, he was her greatest tormentor, her number one enemy. But the guy that’s come back is like no one Tessa’s ever come across. He challenges her, he tests her limits, he forces her to bring out the girl she’s long ago buried under a veil of mediocrity and most of all he compels her to consider that perhaps the boy that infuriates her to the point of no return might just be her guardian angel.
Warning: The story comes with a bad boy notorious for making you swoon, inducing hysterical laughter and making you question whether you could purchase a clone on eBay.

First things first, let me take a minute to control the fangirl deep inside my soul that’s trying to break free.
Now that I got that out of my system let me say that I love, capital L-O-V-E, LOVE this book! It was in no way, shape, or form what I expected. There were so many parts to this book that just made it amazing. It was like every page was full with intrigue, interest, excitement, drama, laughter, and romance. The Bad Boy’s Girl is literally everything I would want in a teen romance. Yeah some parts may seem edgy or “too much” but come on!! Sometimes life is too much and dishes out things we aren’t prepared for. That’s how I feel about this book, surprisingly and blissfully unprepared. But oh was it good!!
I wish I could say more about the plot, I really do. But I also fully believe that I can give no more than what the synopsis provides to avoid spoilers. Unfortunately this synopsis does not even scratch the surface of this book so you will just have to trust me when I say that The Bad Boy’s Girl exceeds expectations.
What I can do is try and break these characters down for you. Let me start with Tessa. Tessa is stuck seeing herself as less in every way. She has no self-confidence even though she is witty as hell. She has a lot of crap on her plate and even though she would probably disagree with me, I think shes strong as hell. I wanted to reach out to her and make her see just how awesome she truly is. Thankfully we have Cole for that!
If you look up bad boy with a heart of gold in the dictionary you would see his picture. He’s a little arrogant but that really is just part of the charm that is Mr. Stone. I could go on and on about him but I really cant give everything away. So I will say what I love the most about our leading guy. When he cares for someone he is so protective, maybe even to a fault, but god it works. He really does everything he can to take care of Tessa, and drive her a little nuts along the way.
The only thing about this book that drove me just a little more crazier than normal was the ending. I was faced with the biggest cliff hanger I have ever read. I actually had to do some google searches afterwards because I can not be left with questions unanswered. Not with this book, and not with this cliff hanger.
I also like to point out that the last few chapters are some of the first chapters rewrote in Cole’s P.O.V. Which is really interesting to me, I love getting the guy’s side of the story. I also got a huge kick out of the chapter names. I would read them and then bust out laughing, while also trying to figure out what in the world they meant.
The Bad Boy’s Girl will make you laugh, swoon, cry, want to strangle someone, and drive you crazy with all the feels. When I say go read this book, I’m not simply suggesting it or recommending it. You do in fact need to read this book!
