Book Review Express 5 Star Review Corner brings you
“Badd Ass” book 2 from Jasinda Wilder’s awesome Badd Brothers Series. (review below)
I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.
The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him.
And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me.
Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars.
And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.
Jasinda Wilder has got a hit on her hands with this series. I Absolutely Love it. I mean what’s not to love – the series is about 8 sexy, virile, gorgeous brothers returning home to their roots and their lives once they arrive. BaddAss is Zane’s story and appropriately titled, as he is not only one of the Badd brothers, he is an ex Navy Seal who it pretty Bad Ass!
Zane does everything to the extreme; he works and plays hard. But he doesn’t trust easy and he doesn’t do relationships for what he considers to be a very good reason (sorry I don’t do spoilers). So when he meets Mara he’s thrilled because she is in total agreement – one night and no strings – not to mention she’s only in town for a few days. So one night it is, and OH WHAT A NIGHT. But what happens come morning and they both want another night? Does Mara pull her usual M.O. Routine of sneaking away come morning? Does Zane keep to his one night, no strings, no relationship theory? This story is fun (in Badd Brother craziness fashion), exciting (as Only Jasinda can tell it) and HOT HOT HOT (as in OH MY GOSH)! I highly recommend BaddAss and the Badd Brothers series. 2 Thumbs Up and bring on sexy brother #3!!
You can’t go wrong when you pick up a book written by Jasinda Wilder! The series picks up with Mara waking up in Zane’s bed. What has she done now? They agreed to one night only but something feels different. But she’s not one to linger on the what if and attempts to “escape”. Zane let’s her think she’s escaping him, but something was different with this one. Now what? Does he let her leave? Does he pursue these new feelings? Neither does relationships. Can they actually spend a week together “practicing”? What will happen if the feelings change? This was a wonderful story of 2 lost souls trying to find happiness in one another. New feelings to endure but at what cost? I loved the characters and watching as the week drew them closer. There was love and happiness and holy hotness between the sheets. Such a great read, you won’t want to miss this one!
