Title: Bad Boys After Dark: Dylan
Author: Melissa Foster
Series: Bad Boys After Dark – Book 2
Release Date: December 21, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tiffany Winters is the exact opposite of the women Dylan Bad normally pursues. She focused on building her business and has no time for a relationship. Her pursuit is to become the top sports agent in New York, not succumb to the charms of the sexy as sin bar owner who hits on her. What happens when a sexy bar owner with a thing for submissive women falls hard for a controlling man-eater? You’ll have to read it to find out!
There are a few things I can always count on from Melissa Foster: excellent writing, a sexy hero, steamy romance, and fantastic secondary characters. She delivered all that and more in the 2nd installment of her Bad Billionaires After Dark series. The story is engaging, funny, sexy, and emotional. I’ve read a LOT of books by this author and really enjoyed them all, but I’ve never loved a hero this much.
Dylan is definitely BBF (book boyfriend) material.
“As he sent her a good-night text – ‘You’re my ten, summer girl. Sweet dreams’ – he knew that even if Winters suited her just fine at the moment, she’d always be his summer girl.”
He’s sexy, sweet, sends good night texts, and even has the perfect nickname for Tiffany Winters. She’s his summer girl. SWOON!
As for Tiffany Winters, she wasn’t my favorite M.F. heroine. She’s a tad too hard and controlling for me. When we first meet her, she’s glued to her cellphone and described as “a cutthroat negotiator who ate men for breakfast”. Not only does she not believe in relationships; she solely wants to focus on work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for strong women handling their business. A woman striving to be the best at her chosen profession (I’m one of them) is admirable; but Tiffany is a bit OTT in her pursuit to become the top sports agent in New York. Thankfully, the reader gets more insight into her life as the book progresses. After that I understood what caused her drive. Again, nod to the excellent writing and fantastic character development. It really made the difference for me. As I began to understand Tiffany’s character more, she slowly began to grow on me. Eventually she mellows out and allows herself to love.
Overall, this is a solid 4 star read. The secondary characters and family dynamics provide an emotional element that I really enjoyed. More than a steamy read, this book is sweet and very well rounded. It’s fantastically executed. I definitely recommend it.
