BLOG TOUR: Badass in My Bed (Badass, Book 1) by Rae Lynn Blaise

Title: Badass In My Bed #1

Publication Date: June 23, 2015


My life is music. I play it, I live it, I breathe it. Next week, I start my dream job playing cello with the Boston Symphony. My father might finally be proud of me, and I… well, I’ll have my music.

Then I met Dylan—tattooed, badass, always-hard Dylan. He’s nothing like anyone I’ve ever been with before. Just one night can’t hurt me.

But sometimes when you play with fire, you get burned.


I sneak another peek and bingo! I finally see his face.

God, his face…

Now that I see it, I’m not sure I can ever look away. It’s striking. Stunning. Strangely beautiful.

His eyes are inset, his jaw and nose strong. And his mouth—perfect, his lips full but not girly. They’re sin and sex, yet, as he smirks at something on his phone, also quite boyish. It’s the kind of mouth I could stare at for hours, watching the way it shapes words and slides into smiles. The kind of mouth that feels good to kiss and better to suck and my, oh, my, I bet he sucks down there so right I wouldn’t need to grab a vibrator after.

Where the hell did that come from? I’m not a prude, but having dirty thoughts about men in bars is really not my style.

It’s a sign of stress, that’s all. In my mind, Beautiful Tattooed Boy is the personification of chance encounters and not having a plan. It’s the other road—the road I didn’t take. Correction—wouldn’t take. He’s nice to look at, but other than that, we’d probably clash. Big time. I’m only attracted to him because, although I’m happy with my choices and my plans, I can’t help being curious about what else might have been.

Yeah. That’s totally it.

But what if I’m more than curious?



Now this is a pleasant surprise...

It's is a very quick read, that's for sure. Seeing that this is like the first episode only, the whole thing revolved around the first meeting, all in a span of 2 days. It finished so quickly, even I wonder if it really happened. While there's not a lot of story, it's laying down the foundation for what's to come.

Rachel is about to embark on a new chapter in her life when she decides to let her hair down for a night. Dylan was supposed to be just this random hookup. Rachel clearly has issues that she's dealing with, and Dylan, well, he seems to have a past and as to how his present life really is, we've yet to find out.

Now I've had my share of dark reads so when I read "badass in my bed", my attention is caught. I realized it's Rachel's version of badass. And keep in mind that Rachel is practically this goody-two shoes whose whole life revolves around music, and classical music at that. So yah, Dylan is quite badass if you see it from her POV. Nevertheless, in short an episode, Rae Lynn managed to fit in a lot of smokin times. Oh yes!!;)

And she even managed to fit in some philosophical conversations in there which IRL may be standard fare for dates but just felt a tad odd here...

It ends on a cliffie, but not too steep. As I hopefully get to continue with this series, I'm crossing my fingers that it will take me on an emotional journey in addition to getting more smexy times.
