BAD INTENTIONS: 
Is the second book in Charleigh Rose’s ‘Bad Love’ series. In this we meet tattoo artist Dare and Logan aka Lo. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’
What happens when fire meets ice? Fire wins. Every time..
This was one of my most highly sort after books and I couldn’t wait to get my grabby little hands on it.

Running away with her brother from a drug addict mother and an ex who wasn’t what he seemed, they make their way to their estranged fathers place at River’s Edge, hoping to settle down, hoping for a better future.

Finding a job was the first hurdle, but there were so many potholes in the road that kept on rearing its ugly head each time they thought nothing else would unsettle their new found happiness something else would be thrown in their paths. Twists and heartbreaking turns had my heart reeling for these characters.

Our hero Dare, is a standoffish tatted up mysterious guy with a heartbreaking past just like our heroine Lo both have scars within, having no one else to lean on or help them in any shape or form they connected on such a beautiful emotional level, both lost souls that find each other, imperfectly perfect for each other.


Right from the start Lo and Dare had such an undeniable attraction towards each other, Lo's feistiness had Dare reeling in her wake, he didn't know what to do with her, didn't know what hit him when she came into town. Slowly but surely she breaks down all his defenses, Beautifully broken, and all his walls slowly come tumbling down and we see what once was a closed off Dare in his place is a guy that loves deeply and protects those he cares about like his life depends on it.

These two like no other characters before them will swoop in unexpectedly and will capture your heart and soul.

Lo
Moving to River’s Edge was supposed to be a fresh start.
Away from chaos.
Away from bad influences and worse relationships.
All I wanted was to give my little brother more of a chance than I ever had.
It should’ve been simple.
I didn’t count on my transgressions following me.
And I definitely didn’t count on meeting Dare.
Tall, tortured, and tattooed.
A Lost Boy through and through.
Falling for someone like him was asking for heartache.
But I was a sucker for punishment.


Dare
I had a routine.
Eat, work, sleep, repeat, only ever doing the bare minimum to keep up appearances.
I kept my circle small and my guard high.
I spent years making sure I didn’t repeat the mistakes of my past, forming an impenetrable layer of ice around my heart.
Then Logan showed up in my town, in my tattoo shop, testing my patience along with my self-control.
She was fire and I was ice.
I should’ve stayed away.
But I had been cold for far too long.

Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She's hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn't reading or mom-ing, she's writing moody, broody, swoony romance.
