Bad for you by Abbi Glines

Goodreads: “Innocence was never meant for the addictive…
Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.
Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.
However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.
During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.
Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.”
Yes, I guess you have noticed by now, I’m a big Abbi Glines’s fan… what can I say, she’s awesome. Her books make me feel angsty, swoony, red-hot mad and red-hot other thing *giggles*
I don’t know why but I have this thing for books whose main characters are: virginal, sweet, innocent girls and bad/playboy, alpha guys. My mom probably dropped me a couple of times when I was a baby, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did cause I’m pretty weird sometimes *coff always coff*
I thought this book would only be about some unresolved business the main male character had, like not being able to keep a stable relationship, or idk, child drama, or even being unable to utter a certain four letter word, you know, the thing you usually read on every NA book nowadays…
This book was about that, but mainly, about the main female character, Blythe. Like I said before, I admit I have a soft spot for sweet, innocent main characters, yet Blythe was still able to bring something new to all the other book characters I’ve ever met. I can’t praise her enough, really.
Anyway guys, I really want you to read this one, even if you don’t like Abbi Glines’s books (I am aware of some bad critics), or if you don’t know Abbi Glines at all.
This book can be read as a standalone, so please give it a try!
My brain and insides turned into mush after reading this book. Hopefully it will make you feel the same!
I won’t even go further and explain how the book starts, as I usually do, I just really want you go ahead and read it like I did. I started reading this book without even reading the summary, which a must to me!
