Synopsis

Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.


Staci Hart had me with her last book A Thousand Letters so I jumped at the chance to read Bad Penny, it was totally not what I had expected but it has everything I loved in a good read. The heroine Penny is uninhibited, the hero Bodie is amazing and the story line is funny, steamy, loving, frustrating and heartbreaking. 

Penny has held onto the heartbreak of her past relationship as an example of what never to let happen again. She has taken the three date rules to a whole new level, her boldness and her free spirit when it comes to sex will have you laughing and then have you wanting to pull your hair out at times. Penny can color her hair every color and use sex as a way to avoid her feelings, but what happens when someone from her past who truly knows her and is willing to accept all her quirks comes along? 

Bodie is hot as hell, he wasn't always that way. He is back, fine and one smart mathematician. Bodie, his twin brother and friend are working on launching a video game that they have started on in high school. He never expected to get swept away by the girl he has been crushing on since they were kids. She is still beautiful, but will her ways of not committing to a relationship push him away? Trust me when I say Bodie is not one that any woman would want to let go of. His sweetness, tenderness, understanding, possessiveness is perfection and just may be hat Penny needs.

This is one sexy story of letting go of the past, your rules and being honest  so that you wont lose the chance for true love. I look forward to reading Staci Hart's new releases. 4.5 Stars!
