Badd Ass (Badd Brothers #2) Jasinda Wilder
Reviewed by Jacqui
Ketchikan, Alaska. Where cruise ships port and home of the Badd brothers. This time we meet Zane Badd. An ex-Navy SEAL back in his hometown to fulfill his dad’s wish of all eight brothers being home and running the family bar for a year. Zane is big, bad, and gorgeous as all the Badd brothers are. But, also struggling from his last tour and loss of a friend.
Mara is in HR and in Ketchikan to meet up with a friend. Formerly an army medic, she steps into action when another of the Badd brothers is injured during a wedding celebration outside the bar. Her medic training kicks in and she catches the eye of Zane. After a lust filled night together, they agree to try something neither is good at. Practice dating. Mara is only there for a week but feels something so different for Zane she gives it a try. She has trust issues and makes this a challenge for Zane. Will one week be enough?
I loved the chemistry of these two characters. Honesty and facing fears along with some mind blowing sex makes this latest book from Jasinda Wilder a must. You also get a glimpse into the next Badd brother. Thanks Jasinda Wilder again for giving us another great read! Bring on the next Badd brother!
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.
Badd Motherf*cker (Badd Brothers #1) Jasinda Wilder

I don’t know how Jasinda Wilder does it. Her life revolves around raising her kids, have a winery, and turning out so many amazing books!
Badd Motherf*cker takes place in Ketchikan, Alaska a small tourist town where cruise ships come to port and tourists want to experience the local charm. I know, I’ve been there, done that. How did I miss this bar?! Sebastian Badd owns the family bar after the death of his father. While it’s not doing well, things are about to change for Bast, the bar, and the port city of Ketchikan. All courtesy of a stranger in a wedding dress and his seven equally good looking brothers.
Dru was supposed to be married today. Wanting to calm her nerves by seeing her future husband, her nerves are shattered when she finds him with a bridesmaid and his pants around his ankles. Desperate to get away from everything related to him, she hops on a random small plane and heads off to who knows where. When she lands in Ketchikan, she stumbles into the closest bar and eventually into the heart of the hunky owner.
Jasinda Wilder gives you what you expect from her books. Laughter, tears, and some good hot and steamy sex. This book will not disappoint and I cannot wait to meet more of the Badd brothers. Thank you Jasinda Wilder for another fun read!
Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.
So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…
And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.
Eight brothers, one bar.
Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?
I kinda think so.
Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.
I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it–at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…
Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination–and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.
But I did.
***THE BADD BROTHERS is 8 connected but standalone books in a sexy, funny, alpha male family series. Warning: this book contains mature content, and may also make you laugh out loud!***
