Colt King has spent his whole life trying to prove he's not the trash his hometown of Destiny, Nevada, thought he and his brothers were. As soon as he was old enough he left town, vowing to make a name for himself and never looking back at the place that looked down on him. But that plan goes out the window when his ailing elderly aunt asks him to come home.
He begrudgingly returns to help the woman who raised him. But he's no longer the poor kid from the bad part of town. He's the ruler of a custom car empire and a financial genius. He arrives expecting a boring stay, but when he walks into his childhood home to find a woman in nothing but her underwear pointing a shotgun at his face, he knows his trip home will be a memorable one. With his aunt sick and forcing him to help her restore her fledgling hair salon, he has more than enough on his plate. Colt has no idea that her sexy tenant, Zanna, is going to be the cause of his many sleepless nights.
Zanna Jacobs came to the ghost town of Destiny to stay out of trouble and stay the hell away from men. She's got a serious thing for bad boys that's she trying to kick, and when she lays her eyes on the brutishly handsome Colt, she knows he's got bad news written all over him. He's not the typical thug she goes for: He's too clean cut, too good looking, and too cold--and when he comes to take over her salon, she's not going to take it. Zanna decides to show him exactly who the boss is. Colt is used to people following his orders, and when Zanna challenges his every word he finds her infuriating and incredibly sexy. He can't keep his hands off her...and knows that once he returns to Las Vegas, all bets are off...
Between a hot CEO who doesn’t mind getting his hands bloody and dirty to a shotgun wielding mad woman slash hairstylist, The Bad Boy CEO, became a quick favorite of mine.
I truly didn’t know what to expect from The Bad Boy CEO, but from the description I knew there would some head butting going on which is always a good sign to a good battle of the sexes story, and I have to admit that I wasn’t disappointed.
As soon as we were introduced to Colt King and his douchebagish ways I was unsure if I was going to like The Bad Boy CEO. I’m not a huge fan of this type of hero, but never one to judge a book off one character I kept reading. So, so, so, so, so, so, so, glad that I kept reading. Not only did it improve character-wise, but the story gripped me in it’s clutches and left me feeling completely satisfied.
The back and forth banter between Colt and Zanna had me grinning like a loon, lol. I don’t have a list listing my favorite book couples handy or anything, but if I did I would be adding Colt King and Zanna Jacobs. The only way I can describe their personalities is to say that Zanna is straight up crazy, wild, and free, and Colt is the iceman with a soft and compassionate core that he only allows through when he’s caring for those he loves.
I truly can’t wait to see what happens in the stories of Duke and Levi, if the ladies they have feelings for are any indication their stories might be just as wild and crazy.
