Betting the Bad Boy by Stefanie London is an easy, fast-paced, lighthearted read. In Betting the Bad Boy, Stefanie London introduces Paige Thomas. She’s a country girl at heart and a perfectionist with dreams of a happily ever after.
Noah is her complete opposite. He lives life and never commits to anything, that is partly due to his history with trusting others and what not.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read. In my opinion, Paige is a little too persistent (almost annoying) and a bit repetitive. She doesn’t believe in casual sex and keeps reiterating it through her monologue and in her conversations with Noah.
After one night of passion, she immediately wants Noah to commit. It made her too pushy and unrealistic I thought. Sure, Noah needs a shove but not the way she handles it. She sends Noah running the other way even though he kind of wants to give things a try. But again, it feels as though she wants a ring on her finger after sleeping with him once.
Again, at the risk of sounding repetitive myself, this was an enjoyable light read. This is part of Stefanie London’s Behind the Bar series, but it’s stand-alone so you can totally read it out of order.
