There’s a reason nice girls don’t f*ck with guys like me.
This is an Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.
I’m big, bad, and I don’t play around. Ex-con, lone wolf, general hardass. I’m focused on training for a series of upcoming cage fights, which I hope will be enough to boost me into the UFC circuit. I don’t have time for games, and I definitely don’t have time for fancy girls with college degrees.
Still, when I walk into the bar where Nora works, I can’t deny myself one hot night with her… she’s sexy, sophisticated, and doesn't take any sh*t.
And she’s far too good for the likes of me. I know better than to get attached, because everyone around me ends up hurt or dead. I just wish I could let her go...
Guys like Riker are NOT on my “to-do” list.
Riker begins to train me in the ring, but soon I want him to train me in the bedroom. He's a cocky, arrogant bastard, but I need him with a burning passion I can't switch off.
Closer up, I realize that Riker is even more damaged than I am. His secrets threaten to tear our relationship apart, and I don't think I'm strong enough to fix it.
One thing's for sure--never get in the way of a bad boy and his honor.
Nora grew up with a hard working mom. Her mother enjoyed helping others so that is what Nora wanted to do with her life. To follow her example and help others, especially kids. She never knew her dad or anything about him until her mom passed away and she was going through her mothers stuff. She had decided she was going to find him and meet him. Riker is a bad ass cage fighter, going through fights until he could become professional enough to fight Tyler Young. Riker is driven and has no distractions, that is until he sees Nora for the first time.
Bad Boy's Honor is the story of a man who always felt fighting was his most important thing in his life. But when he meets the one, his world is turned upside down. Nora has changes his perspective and he is ready to let his playboy status all for her. However, althoug Riker wants Nora, he feels she deserves better than him. Yet he is determined to win her. He wants her and it will be nothing or all for him.
This book is very entertaining. If you enjoy books with underground illegal cage fights, a man and a woman who are so attracted to each other with great chemistry, sad moments of going back and forth on what they do or don't want, and a love story.. Then you should read this book. I loved reading about two people from two different worlds who want each other and have to work at it out to make things possible. It keeps hope to this real world. Hope that one can find true love no matter your circumstances.
