Oh Kendall you are so not “bad at love”

Bad At Love CoverBad at Love by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Exceptional!

This is, hands down, one of my favourite books from Aimee. It flows beautifully, the relationship between Ridge and Kendall is so supportive and OMG do they burn the pages.

They are on fire when they get together but it’s so much more than just chemistry, they click from the minute they meet and that itself is just a massive amount of fun.

The book has a couple of subplots which both worked very well for me and which I’m not going into as it would spoiler one of the major elements of the storyline.

Ridge is so my type, he’s stoic and steady, supportive and secretly artistic and a gentle soul wrapped inside a giant teddy bear of a man. Kendall is one of life’s characters who brings joy while inside they’re dealing with plenty of hurt and insecurities. I love him so much.

From the first appearances of both these men in the Zero Hour/Sinister in Savannah series’ I’ve wanted their stories and Aimee did not disappoint in any way.

I devoured this book in one sitting, it drew me in from the start and never let go. It’s seriously sexy, it’s sweet, Ridge has an awesome family that I loved in the very brief glimpses we get of them and there’s a fab little guest appearance from Royce and Sawyer which had me smiling.

Asher also makes a brief appearance and the whole setting is brilliantly linked into the wider Savannah world without anyone needing to have read those books first – although seriously, read them, they’re brilliant.

I’m not sure who else is getting a book in this spin-off series but I hope Aimee continues to write in this setting because I love everything about it.

Bad At Love Cover

Blurb

Bad at making decisions or bad at love? Either way, Kendall Blakemore doesn’t trust his judgment. He falls too hard, too fast, and always for the wrong guy. Needing a major shakeup, Kendall moves into his own place for the first time and seizes a new career opportunity. But everything he thought he wanted turns out to be the last thing he needs. When loneliness threatens to derail Kendall’s good behavior, he decides to rent out his spare bedroom. What could go wrong? Try a tenant who’s temptation incarnate.

Bad at commitment or born to roam? Either way, US Deputy Marshal Kurt Dandridge feels trapped. Maybe staying in one place for too long is the source of his unhappiness, or maybe it’s because he’s engaged to the wrong person. Finding his fiancé in bed with another man takes care of one problem but creates another. Ridge needs a place to live. He’d leave Savannah altogether if not for his vow to apprehend an elusive fugitive. Renting a room from Kendall Blakemore seems like the perfect solution until Ridge finds himself falling for the alluring man. Would one kiss derail his course? And could he stop at just one?

Hurts so good. Chemistry burns between them—hot, consuming, and impossible to ignore. And why should they? Kendall and Ridge are consenting adults who know the score. Being bad has never felt so good, but it’s a slippery slope to navigate. One misstep could have disastrous consequences for both men.

Bad at Love is a standalone novel within the Sinister in Savannah universe where both characters first appeared. It is not necessary to read that series first. Bad at Love is a romantic suspense that’s heavier on the romance than the suspense.

My favourite one in what has been an outstanding series

56795402._SY475_Pretty Poison by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG so good, definitely my favourite of this quite brilliant series.

With Rocky, Aimee has created a full-fleshed out complex and complicated man who sometimes gets in his own way but who I absolutely understood and empathised with.

He’s dealing with not only a traumatic incident, but with the insidious poison of his husband’s best friend’s manipulations and more than a year after he ran out on their marriage, he’s still dealing with the aftermath.

When Asher turns up in Savannah, looking to reclaim his husband as well as move on with his career as a US Deputy Marshall, it acts as a catalyst for Rocky to begin to take a look at how he’s not been dealing with the fallout of a private investigation which went horrifically wrong.

Asher was such a wonderful guy. He’s determined but never overrides Rocky’s fears and anxieties. Through Rocky’s POV, we see a strong, principled man who will do anything for the guy he loves.

The case which this installment is built around was also a fascinating one, for a long time I wasn’t sure where it was going to go and I was surprised by the outcome, which I felt was completely within keeping of both the characters involved and the overall situation.

There are moments of levity as well to break up the sorrows and the levels of anxiety and PTSD which Rocky is facing and I think it was pitched just right.

And, as ever, there is the wonderful friendship at the heart of this series between the three men who run the Sinister in Savannah Podcast.

Plus, the rock at the centre of it all is still Miss Marla, who is with no shadow of doubt one of the best characters to have come out of Aimee’s wonderful imagination.

She is still vivacious, although there is a growing air of fragility about her which had me tearing up on more than one occasion and outright crying during the Live Celebration which is organised at the drag queen diner.

I am sad this initial trilogy has ended, but so very happy to read there will be more spin-off standalones as a result and that Aimee is intending to go back to where it all began with Royce and Sawyer too 😁
