Innocence was never meant for the addictive…

Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.

Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.

However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.

During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.

Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.

MY THOUGHTS

If you’re expecting this story to give a new twist in the new adult category then this one is definitely <b>not</b> for you. If you’re tired of clichés, broken characters, uncomplicated conflicts and a bit predictable plot then this story is definitely <b>not</b> for you. You shouldn’t even dare pick this one up.

This story offers not much difference from the previous works of the author and stories that fall on the same category as this. But what can I say? Sometimes I’m just a sucker for clichés and there are just days that you need angst filled easy read that would make you smile silly and feel butterflies flutter around your stomach.

Bad For you is the latest installment from the See Breeze Series and I’m telling you before hand that even though it doesn’t rate as high as the first five books from this series, I could sill say that Bad For you was still a great addition to the story because we get Krit Corbin out of it. Right? Right?

School and Church yet people still think of her as sinful.
Blythe Blakely lived in a very closed and guarded life with the pastor and his wife looking up as her guardians.  Blythe simple wants to be free and be successful on her dreams to be a writer. From the get go, it was pretty evident how naive and innocent Blythe is – don’t even get me started on the sweet tea incident! She’s an okay character and we have seen her struggles in growing up and how her life unravels before her eyes.

Music, booze and girls – Krit Corbin is the THE rock god. Yet he was emotionally damaged and refuses people to let in. He lives on day a time with his music, friends and different girls.

I like Krit and Blythe and I can feel their chemistry as the story starts. I love how their differences still make their relationship work; how their friendship worked.

This would have been a much better read if certain things were not rushed or left out (Oh maybe the pregnant stint could definitely be left out). Just like the past of each other broken lead characters. Blythe experienced a not so good childhood which was described to us readers but it would have been better if Blythe also explained this to Krit giving him also a chance to open up his own past. I’m really intrigued with happened on this hot rock star we only get glimpses of it but a full explanation would have made it better

As I have mentioned this book offers nothing that much different from your typical dose of New Adult story but the thing with Abbi Glines’ novels is that each of them has their own variation. I enjoyed reading Bad For You but I just wish to get back the five-star-I-just-cant-get-enough-of -the-story- mojo back in reading Abbi Glines’ story. But don’t fret; I’ll still be looking forward for her works! 🙂
