Review Tour - Bad by Stevie J. Cole & LP Lovell

About the Book

True power is never held by good men, only the most perfect of villains. And she and I are both villains...

I stole her, and she's so very angry. The cartel princess doesn't like being a pretty little pawn. She fights me when she should fear me. But oh, how her defiance excites me.

She would kill me if she could, and I'd ruin her if I had an ounce less control. What a twisted game we play with sweet threats and cruel promises. I crave her madness in the most depraved ways because I know she'll be so beautiful when she bleeds.

A queen who could set the world on fire and a king who would call it rain. Two very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together.

Some love stories have no heroes.

My Review

Rating: 5 "Bad is the new Black" Stars

Once again I've found myself wandering into the dark corners of literature, and this time around, I can't guarantee that I will walk out of it alive

Ronan Cole isn't a man with power, he is THE power. 

"Some men command power while others simply are power. This man wears it like a second skin, an impenetrable suit of armor.

Blood, gore and the whole mafia war, I've thought I've seen the worst with Crescendo (another hidden gem in the dark contemporary world) but to have Bad topping the violence...I am beyond words.


I should hate the very essence of Ronan Cole, he was manipulative, calculative and merciless and kills people to prove a point. A beast behind his suit and tie that serves as a leash to control the monster within. I couldn't find a single redeeming quality and everything about Ronan screams "DANGER". But, just like Camilla, Ronan Cole's allure knows no bounds. You craved for his presence until you drown in his power and aura, yet you wanted to despise him for the devil he is. His sense of control was frustrating to see yet drew us in like magnets and you desperately wanted to see him unravel. 

"I want to watch Ronan snap, to lose control and destroy everything in his own beautiful inferno."

Camilla is Ronan's match in every way. 
"A queen fit for a king...But not every king needs a queen."

But she is also his kryptonite, the seductress that tempts the edge of his control. Like a game of tug of war, when he strikes, she strikes back. When he pushed, she pushed even harder. 

"Her beauty is in her destruction, rampant and hot. Her existence is grounded in the sole purpose to destroy"
"She's brimming with the most beautiful form of insanity, and I want to embrace it. "

Yet, he couldn't risk his empire just for the sake of his curiosity. When the shiny new toy loses her spark, will she be discarded or ended up worst....dead. 

Cole's writing was incredibly poetic and hypnotic, I couldn't tear myself away and was completely immersed in the darkness of it all, yet craving every. single. bit. 

I couldn't imagine how the sequel could be even Badder, but no matter how crazy things get, I couldn't wait!! 

**I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book generously provided by Social Butterfly PR and the author. Thank you so much for the reviewing opportunity! 

About Stevie J. Cole 

Stevie J. Cole likes to write realistic stories with raw, gritty characters you should hate but can't help but to love. 

She's obsessed with rock music, loves sloths, and has an unnatural obsession with British accents.

Her books are not recommended for the faint of heart.
