Review Bad for You by Abbi Glines


Innocence isn’t meant for the addictive…The next sultry affair in the New York Times bestselling Sea Breeze Collection by Abbi Glines is unstoppably steamy.

Addiction is part of Krit Corbin’s nature—and women have always been his favorite obsession. But that’s the life of a lead singer in a band. He can have any woman he wants—anywhere, anytime. Well, except for one.

Blythe Denton is used to being alone. The minister’s family who raised her never accepted her as their own, and the cruel minister’s wife made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. So when she finally gets the chance to live by herself, Blythe takes it and moves into an apartment building with a loud upstairs neighbor who keeps throwing parties all night long.

It’s during one such party when Krit opens the door to find his new neighbor standing there. Blythe wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay. She’s nothing like the women who parade in and out of his apartment, but Krit can’t resist her—her brown hair, cute glasses, and sexy innocence is too much for him to ignore.

Determined to win Blythe over, Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet.

I always enjoy a New Adult romance by Abbi Glines and Bad for You was no exception. The plot was pretty formulaic: bad boy rocker finds love with innocent virgin. I was able to guess a lot of the plot before it happened, but I still find myself swept away in Krit and Blythe’s romance.

Krit was a good male lead although he made a lot of questionable choices, especially regarding women. But that is to be expected since Blythe is the only girl who makes him believe in true love. Blythe is shy and awkward, but Krit finds her intriguing. They begin as friends before realizing they feel something much more. I liked Blythe for the most part, but she was a little too weak at times. Like I wanted to yell at her to stop apologizing for the most ridiculous things.

The sex scenes were spectacular. Abbi Glines is a master at writing a good love scene. I really felt the emotional and physical connection between Krit and Blythe. It was also fun to see Krit help Blythe discover her own sexuality.

The pacing was good, so I flew through the book. There was a good amount of drama, although some of the subplots were a little annoying. But I really loved the conclusion, I liked that both Krit and Blythe found a way to be happy. Bad for You is a solid entry in the Sea Breeze series and can be read as a standalone.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
