I should have seen it coming. Sexy? Handsome? Trouble? Check, check, and check.
Is he messing up my life? Hell yes. All the signs are there: he is a bad boy.
Even his name is a lie. Too bad I married him. I can’t wait to get divorced.
Does this make me sound crazy?
I know I should avoid him, run as fast as I can. However, when a harmless misunderstanding lands me in a foreign prison cell, my dear, lying husband is the only one who can get me out. Crap. I shouldn’t accept.

But how to say no to trouble when said trouble is the one who makes me fantasize all the dirty things he could do to me?

Bad Boy is the final book in the An Indecent Proposal series, and I have finally found time to pick it up. Each book has been building up and after what happened in the previous book I’ve been excited to see what would happen next between Laurie and Chase, would Chase come clean, could Laurie forgive him and could they work through it?

Laurie began to really annoy me in this final book, I know that she wanted to get space, but when Chase was there she just didn’t seem to listen. I just wanted her to shut up and let Chase explain what was going on. She was causing all this drama that she could’ve worked through easier if she just let him tell her what she needed to know.

I loved Chase though; through everything he was patient with Laurie, waited for her to absorb the information overload, and continued to show her how much he wanted her despite the deception that she put her through. I could see that he cared deeply for her, even though it wasn’t his intention.

Even Laurie’s BF did something that would’ve had my hackles raised, even if Chase was such a good looking guy and seemed normal via message, she shouldn’t have done that. However, she was a good friend to Laurie and was always there to support her.

The story line was good, even though Laurie got on my nerves at times. Laurie and Chase tried hard to get on the same page in regards to her family and entitlements. Chase proved his love over and over, but Laurie found it hard to get past the hurt and what she has been told all her life. The ending felt a little rushed, and I would’ve liked to see more of Laurie and Chase, and see them face it all together. The epilogue wrapped things up quickly and in the end it was a good conclusion to the series.

Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

I loved this moment when Chase was baring his soul to Laurie!

“I don’t think you understand what I’m saying.” His lips swept over my cheek, his nose brushing mine, as he whispered in my ear, “When I said I like you, what I really meant isn’t that I want to fuck you, or that we’re great friends. I’m saying that I really want to be with you. Every minute I see you, I fall in love with you even more, and I know you can feel it, too. Don’t pretend there’s nothing between us because you’re lying to yourself.”
