Book Review for Falling for Mr. Bad by Melissa Foster

 The Bradens & Montgomerys, Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls #11

Falling for Mr. Bad by Melissa Foster

Genre:  Romance

Published February 21, 2024 by World Literary Press


Taken from Goodreads:  She’s a badass musician and mechanic with no patience for overinflated egos. He’s a billionaire with no time for drama. Going head-to-head has never been so much fun...or so dirty.

Scorching heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and loads of heart make this sexy enemies-to-lovers, close proximity, forbidden, workplace, small town standalone romance unputdownable. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and happily ever afters guaranteed to leave you breathlessly in love with the fiercely loyal and wickedly naughty characters in the Love in Bloom series. All Love in Bloom books are written to stand alone or be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right in and enjoy the ride!

Sable Montgomery loves her single, do-as-she-pleases small-town life. She sees family often, spends her days working in her auto shop and many evenings playing at a local pub with her band, Surge. She has no desire to settle down or let any man tell her what to do. When Surge is offered what most people would consider the chance of a lifetime to tour with and open for Bad Intentions, the hottest rock band of the decade, her bandmates are all in, but she’s determined to walk away. Sable has no patience for glitz, glamour, or overinflated egos, and that includes the infuriatingly hot billionaire sent to wrangle her into submission.

Taking over as manager for his brother’s band wasn’t on business mogul Kane Bad’s agenda last year, much less negotiating with the stubborn and beautiful lead singer for Surge, but there’s nothing he won’t do for family. Including trying to stifle his desire for Sable. He needs to convince her to accept the contract, but he’d rather wrangle the sexy, headstrong, boot-wearing, tough-talking musician into his bed.

Loyalties are tested, lies are told, and greedy pleasures are satisfied. Are they just a chorus between chaotic verses, or will falling for Mr. Bad be Sable’s greatest love song?


My Thoughts:
  WOW!  This book had everything that I love in a romance book.    The attraction between Sable and Kane was so hot I thought the pages would start melting in the book. The friendships are strong with the secondary characters.   The families are involved at every turn of the page.   This is just some of what I love about a Melissa Foster book.

Sable and Kane are thrown together and into a world that Sable does not want to be in. Kane works so hard to make her and her bandmates as comfortable as possible while also keeping her out of the public eye as much as he can.  Being the opening act for a top band makes it very difficult to keep their lives private.  I love how much Kane wants to protect Sable.  He is willing to do anything to help her be comfortable in the lifestyle that she never wanted.    Even when they are not a couple, Kane treats her with respect and cannot help but want to be her safe place.   Sable cannot help but move towards him, knowing he is her safe place.

 This is a sexy, steamy, love/hate relationship book. A rocker woman falls for a billionaire alpha man and that loving protective man falls for the mechanic family first woman.  


Thank you to the author for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
