Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, 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 gets 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 and 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.
I generously received this ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review…
Where in the world is the THOUSAND star button because bad beotch Penny’s story needs just that! This book was so hilariously funny that it had me crying from laughter as I devoured this one of a kind story as quickly as possible. Right from the start I was hooked and that didn’t end until I was turning to the last page. Staci Hart has once again captured my heart with her extraordinary writing style.
After reading A Thousand Letters, which was an extremely emotional second chance romance, I wasn’t sure what to expect with Bad Penny. Was it going to be another tearjerker or was it going to be more of a funny and light hearted read? What I got was everything. This story was truly EVERYTHING and I am so lost for words because there is so much I want to say, but at the same time I think this is the kind of story where you want to get to know the characters first hand. Lets just say that Penny and Bodie’s story will have you laughing and leave you hopeful from beginning to end as they navigate through their own struggles when it comes to dating.
I totally plan on rewriting this review when I have more time to process what I want to say, but I will say that I strongly encourage everyone to pick up this book and fall in love with BAD PENNY today!
About Staci Hart
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.
