Too Bad, So Sad


Tyler Cree has never been good at the whole look and don’t touch thing.
From the moment he was old enough to walk on his own two feet, he’s been looking for trouble.
Trouble comes in many forms…quite a few of those forms being the female persuasion.
Tyler knows what girls want—a bad boy. And he has the bad boy image down pat.
Hot cop—double check.
A bike between his legs and a devil may care attitude—oh, yeah.
All the girls want him, yet none of them will have him—at least not all of him, anyway. A certain appendage they can have all they want. His heart, however, is not up for grabs. The useless organ inside his chest was broken and battered, mutilated by the one woman he thought would keep it safe.
Spoiler alert: she ripped it to shreds and set fire to the pieces.
To protect himself, Tyler keeps everyone at arm’s length, and never lets anyone get too close.
Then Reagan Rose Alvarez barrels into his life, and trespasses on not only his property, but straight into his abused heart. One glance is all it takes, and he’s suddenly thinking about things he hasn’t thought for quite some time—thoughts that a man like him should never have about a woman like her.
One moment of weakness is all it takes, and suddenly he has no other choice but to go on the offensive.
Keeping her is the only other option now.
Turns out, his heart isn’t as broken as he thought it was.
The only problem is, now the little she-devil holds it in the palm of her hands, and she has no clue just how much power she holds.

My Review: 

4 stars

Reagan and Tyler…….I really liked their story.

I only know one other person named Reagan, my husband’s niece. I like the name. It’s unique.

I like that Reagan was an outdoors kind of girl. So many girls today hate to get their hands dirty. But I also liked that she was shy. She wasn’t out there to try to get a guy. She was just trying to live her life. Reagan was still dealing with coming out of a bad relationship and isn’t looking of a new man.

The description of Tyler makes me want to jump through the pages to find him myself. Tyler has not had an easy life. His ex cheated on him with his best friend and he still hasn’t gotten over it.


What happens when Reagan’s ex shows back up? What happens when Tyler’s ex shows back up?

Can they help each other get through the dark times or will they fall apart?

I like how Reagan and Tyler didn’t have an insta-love. I like the back and forth between them. They had to work for their relationship.

And be prepared for tears!!! The story about Tyler’s dad… I was ugly crying!!!!

I really liked this book. I felt that the writing was very good and that the story flowed. I don’t think it was rushed at all and I think it had good character development.

I am soooo excited for Rome’s story!!
