Review: So Bad It Must Be Good by Nicole Helm

Wrong guy. Wrong situation. Might be right.

Free of her overbearing family and their dreams, not hers, Kayla Gallagher is living for herself instead of for her clan's successful restaurant. Step One: finally make her move on Aiden Patrick, the bad-boy son of Gallagher's long-time repairman. Too bad Aidan’s taciturn older brother shows up instead . . .

As the “responsible Patrick,” Liam has always made a conscious choice to do the right thing. He likes fixing things for people—whether it be a broken appliance or a bad situation. Which means he can’t just brush off the quiet Gallagher. Clearly, she needs a shoulder to lean on. But suddenly a shoulder becomes so much more, and Kayla isn’t the quiet little girl she used to be. She’s a vivid, down-for-anything woman showing Liam several sizzling ways to put passion first . . .

As things heat up between them, Liam’s family threatens to come apart for good. The only way Liam can set things right means giving up Kayla. But she’s not about to take no for an answer—or let their chance for something sweeter than desire crash-and burn without a fight.

Expected publication: August 22nd 2017 by Kensington Publishing Corp.

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  The expected publication date is August 22nd, 2017.

This is the second in a series however can easily be read as a stand alone.  While there is a character from the first story present, it is strictly in a best friend role and not necessary to know her backstory.  I have read both and I can honestly say that I enjoyed this one much better.

This was a really short read.  The target audience would be those who like their reads steamy, and plentiful.  Those who like a little more substance than what occurs between the sheets, or in the kitchen, or wherever, may have a more difficult time with it.  I struggled with how fast feelings came in to play between Kayla and Liam based on only physical, albeit intense, chemistry.  Other may not feel this way.

While I struggled with this, and the plethora of unlikeable supporting characters, the story is what it is.  A fix of steamy mixed in with a little bit of a storyline.  While this may not be my favorite series by Helm, I am still a fan.  In fact I am looking forward to reading the next installment in her other series shortly, A Mile High Romance, as I really enjoyed it
