New Release & Review: Bad Influence by Charleigh Rose...Bad Influences Make Can Help Change You for the Better
4.5 Star Review
Holy Moly that was wild and emotional! This was the first book that I’ve read by Charleigh Rose!
These characters carried so much baggage and guilt for things beyond their control. The way that Allison and Jesse’s relationship forms is both sweet and sassy. I love how they have such a sense of humor. There are so many great lines in this book. I feel like I highlighted half of it! This book is so sexy!! Charleigh did a great job building the tension and keeping me in suspense. It will keep you going right until the end!
I could not figure out the mystery that was Jesse, which we had to wait like Allie for the full picture! It was a surprise and I didn’t see it coming! The push and pull between Allie and Jesse was fantastic! I loved their best friends Halston and Sullivan! I want more of those two! I also want the story behind a certain Romeo and Juliet?
There are so many aspects I loved about this story, but where is the fun in hearing only about that? So what was my complaint?
A sex scene!!! Before going into my problem with mentioned scene let me say the rest of them were great! They were a great mixture of sweet, spicy, romantic, raw need, & lust!! They captured the reality of young love and sex!
Problem…do not put candy IN a “whoo-ha” Just no! The grown-up in me cringed and could only think about the infection the character would be getting! Yikes!!
Other than that, only a few complaints about repetitive phrases and actions. If a character bit & sucked on their lip, once they did it twenty times!
Overall, a wonderful book, and I look forward to reading more!
“Did you hear that?” I ask. Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips. “Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me. I give a slight shake of my head in response. “No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?” “Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance. It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding. My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys. Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless. “Was that convincing enough?”
