Bad Things (Tristan & Danika, #1) 
Bad Things by R.K. Lilley
Published on June 11, 2013
About the book:
Danika hasn’t had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier.

One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given.
She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise. So why did crazy have to feel so damn fine?

For as long as she could remember, Danika had been focused on the future with single-minded purpose. Tristan came along and taught her everything there was to know about letting go, and living in the present. She fell, hard and deep. Of course, that only made her impact with the ground that much more devastating.

Bad Things is about Tristan and Danika, and their train wreck of a love story. This series can be read as a standalone, or with the Up in the Air series.

Crystal's Thoughts:
You just whisper the words bad boy and I am sold, but if you pair it with train wreck I start grabbing tissues, blankets, and everything I will need to bunker down for a bumpy fictional ride.  I just know this book is going to break my heart into a thousand pieces and I also know I will love every single minute of it!  Thanks for the great rec krg!

Rachel's Thoughts: 
Oh wow, this does sound like a train wreck! The fall down is always much harder when you love so intensely.  I wonder what is the thing that breaks these two apart?  We'll at least it'll all be resolved in one book, because this says "stand alone" but I'm with you, Crystal, I think this is going to be a bumpy ride! Buckle up!  


  1. Covet by Tracey Garvis Graves looks good but I haven't read On The Island yet so maybe I should start with that

  2. There Is No Light in Darkness is pretty good. I'd say 4 star read for me and I'm 80% done. Loving Cole! Thanks!
